Overall, our experience was great! The food was spectacular. From Breakfast to Dinner, I could not find a thing I did not like. Here’s a tip: mosey on down to the Sunset Cove Beach during the daytime, and hit up the Jerk Chicken Hut (You’re Welcome ☺). The bartenders and wait staff we ok…like any “All-Inclusive” you will pick your favorites. The POP show at 9:30 every night was a good time.
There were two things in particular I wasn’t very pleased with: 1) Housekeeping was not quite up to par. One day we had to call at 6:30 p.m. to have the room cleaned; and 2) One of the days, the room was cleaned but we were not given fresh towels. I can’t actually call these two incidents “Complaints”, because they were immediately rectified. Also, I wasn’t crazy about the man made beaches on the resort, but the Infinity Pool was sweet. We spent most of our time on the Sunset Cove Beach and would end up In the pool before closing. Also, read further on arranging a day trip to Negril. The 7 Mile beach is majestic.
Tips/Suggestions: 1) Try to get a room with a view (building 26). The front desk will help you anyway they can to put you in the room you want. 2) as far as tipping the staff goes, TIP THEM…its how they survive. They are extremely greatful. What I did was, I went to my bank before the trip and withdrew $100 in one dollar bills. 3) If you’re looking to leave the resort, don’t do the group shuttles. Go with the private car service located on the upper level of the lobby. The driver is at your demand, will be with you at all stops, and acts as a first class tour guide. We went with “Dale”. He took us to Margaretville, in Negril, which was AWESOME! He took us to a local spot to get grilled Lobster fresh out of the water. He took us to Rick’s Café at the end of our day. He was with us every step, and made us feel safe and comfortable; and 4) Learn to say “no” Locals will approach you often, and make you feel uncomfortable and pressured to give them money for this and that. Just say no and move along.
All-in-all, I would recommend this place to friends, and would definitely choose Lady Hamilton again. I hope you find this review helpful. If you want any further info, PM me.
