We decided on Montego Bay for a change of pace as we usually go the to the Dominican Rebublic. We also got a fantastic rate on a last minute deal so away we went. We travelled with Sunquest, no problems. The resort is a short 20 minute bus ride from the airport. When we first pulled up, I was a little taken aback by how much concrete was around, as we are used to the vast and lush properites of the DR. However, when you get to the beachfront, it is lovely. The food was the best we have ever had at an all inclusive, tons of variety and all very good. This is the first all inclusive we have stayed at which had room service, nice after a long day at an excursion. The staff was very friendly and always had a smile and were there to help. We were happy to have CBC on the television just to keep up with the news. The rooms was spotless, tub a bit small but really who cares? The Star friends animation team worked very hard and did a good job. There is not a lot of beach to walk as it only spans the three Iberstar resorts so no long walks on the beach. The snorkling right in was pretty good when the wind was calm. We are scuba divers and were impresses with the variety of fish, we even saw a Lion fish. Ther are three clusters of coral, the middle one had the most fish. The water was pretty calm for swimming as it is a bit of a protected bay. Service for drinks at the beach was good. We ate at the steak house and the Japanese restaurant, both very good. We did not bother with the third a la carte as most guests said it was just average and we were very happy with the buffet restaurant. All of the rooms have at least a partial ocean view so don't bother to pay for the upgrade. WE noted a comment on a lot of loud people at the swim up bar, yes there were but to use just a bunch of people having fun. WE noted the management was always around, even out clearing plates and chatting wtih guests at the buffet so they are very hands on and visible more so than we have ever seen, good for them. We came home very relaxed and very pleased with our stay
Get an upper floor as they are quieter.
