“Amazing vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

I thoroughly enjoyed this resort, the food was amazing as well as the drinks! The staff were very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know them. Some of the male staff were a bit to forward with me and came on a bit strong. One of the only guys that wasn't like this with me was Amar (tootsie roll). He was so sweet and a great guy! Definitely enjoyed his company. I will definitely be visiting this resort again in the future!

I'm a bit late with my review as I was there last November. I traveled with my boyfriend.

I have nothing but good things to say about this resort. It was beautiful and impressed us from the minute we arrived.

Food...fantastic!!! Probably the best I've ever had on vacation.

Pool/pool bar...big, always in the sun and clean.

Rooms..clean

Beach...not bad. Good for Montego bay. Lots of shade and nice to see trees other than just palms.

I can't see how the Grand or the Suites is any better than the Beach. Great value for the money. Staff is amazing. Drinks are plentiful.

I would highly recommend this resort and plan to go back next winter.

First off I'd like to say my family and I went to the Grand Palladium in Jamaica. It is far superior in food, service, and overall value. The worthless staff that work at the Iberostar could not have been more rude or incompetent. All of the food tasted like the local idiot cooked it, either being burnt or hardly cooked. When we tried to order room service the woman on the phone told us to "[--] off" and to stop being so lazy and go get it ourselves at the buffet. I was disgusted and will never be going back to an Iberostar anywhere. When we told the front desk about this they said they would deal with it but ended up doing nothing as far as we know. Overall a terrible experience and I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: If you are looking for quiet.... get the inside rooms...

We have traveled to Jamacia 5 times and we feel like it is home away from home and have visited Negril 3 times ,Ochio Rios 1 time and Montego bay 1 time. We do not like to take the buses to the resorts so we connected with the company Jamacia Explorer. Densil takes very good care of us and we feel totally safe with them. He even calls us occasionally to see when we
are coming back.
Now about the resort. We thought it was extremely clean. At some of the other resorts we stayed at by the end of the day garbage cans were full of plates and cups and beaches were always littered with cups. Not here never any litter! Kudos to the hard workers! All of the grounds were very well kept. Resort was beautiful but we are a little partial to open air lobbies and it took a few days to figure out the layout. We also wished there was a little more entertainement at night. We traveled with a large group and some very good friends so every day we enjoyed ourselves very much. Loved to eat lunch at the beach restraunt and found out breakfast was served there too.
Spent every day on the beach looking at the beautiful water. Patrice took care of us every day and we were sad when she had a day off. She made our trip and I notice other people writing reviews mention her. I hope management takes note. Thank you for a great time. I know we will come back because of your wonderful people.

The hotel rooms weren't the greatest, but it they weren't bad either. The rooms were adequate. (we did have a problem w/ ant that they took care of right away)
The grounds were beautiful!
We would recommend staying at the suites which is on the same property and has more amenities. People from the Grand and Suites can use the Beach property, but we couldnt use theirs.
Food was great. Men MUST wear long pants to the "gourmet" restaurants - we didnt see this anywhere and my son wasn't allowed in the Samarai restaurant. (he had to put on my husband's pants and looked ridiculous. (looked better in the nice shorts he had been wearing)
the "social" staff was amazing! they made our trip!
I thought I had read that wifi was free - but it wasnt - there was a charge for it.
The only thing lacking for us was that there are no activities for teens. They offered a lot for young children, but nothing for teens. They need a "teen club" kind of thing.
We would stay there again.
