We just returned from an 8 night stay at the Suites and we were very pleasantly surprised. We travel a lot, but had never been to Jamaica. To be honest, we were concerned based on everything we had read and heard from others regarding Jamaica. I don't get it! We were traveling with 4 teenagers (16-18) and we did not have any problems. In fact, we found the Jamaicans (inside and outside of the resort), to be some of the warmest, friendliest, funniest people that we have ever met. On top of this, the beach is private and there is security throughout the night. Our kids were able to do whatever they wanted, on their own and were treated with respect by all of the staff. We made many friends on this vacation. We even ventured out for authentic Jamaican jerk BBQ and shopping at the markets. Our stay at the resort was a blast. We booked through Costco travel, so I thought the value was very high. I would call the Suites a 3+ to 4 star hotel. Again, the staff tip the scales to making this a 4 star hotel. They were truly incredible. The rooms are good size (for 3 people) and 99% of the views are great. The pool is a very fun hang out spot during the day, with a great activities staff and some of the best bartenders you will ever meet (Waylon, Jules and Chris...respect mon!). The food is good, but it was a bit of a hassle to get a reservation in the full service restaurants. We ate at the buffet 4 out of our 8 nights and it was very good (better than some of the full service venues). After dinner, there is the lounge bar, the music bar and the disco (in that order). If you have the energy, the party lasts until the early hours of the morning. My son and I went scuba diving every morning with Dressel Divers, which is located at the Rose Hall Beach. When staying at the Suites, you have full use of the facilities and restaurants at the Beach hotel too. A couple of tips/details...If you are going to gamble, this is not your place. The casino is SMALL. If you are going to relax, you can, but this is a lively energetic place. The pool had more of a Vegas vibe than a laid back feel. If you have teeneagers, they will be in their glory. We will go back. You would have to try to not have a good time here.
