Just got back from a two week holiday, and have to say don't know what all the negative reviews are about. On checking in we had a minor issue about room allocation, we needed rooms side by side because our daughter is disabled when we got there we were on the top floor and bottom floor.This was the travel agents fault not the hotels, they sorted it out quickly but had to move us to the lady Hamilton side. This wasn't a problem as it is all one resort and facilities are shared.
First we'll start with the rooms, very big and well furnished if a little dated, air con and a fridge stocked daily with beer soft drinks and water. the bath rooms were large with a massive Jacuzzi bath and a large shower. The rooms were very clean and well kept.
The pool is unbelievably large, we were told the largest in the carribean. There is no shortage of beds and there are two poolside bars and a swim up bar ( keep a look out for Martin, Alex and Jonathon in the swim up bar).
The food is fantastic our daughter is very fussy but never failed to find something to eat in the buffet. We only did three of the Al a carte restraunts the Itallian, Indian and steakhouse all three were fantastic but the steakhouse was the best. P.s you gotta try the Jerk hut the chicken is out of this world.
The bars are great as well, lots of cocktails to try,Ask for a Dirty banana, Hummingbird or a purple rain. The sports bar is great pool tables and ping pong for the kids or big kids, and you can get something to eat 22 hrs a day.
The infinity bar is the main bar with bands on and a premium bar on one side called miss Lou's(although you can get Jim beam and Smirnoff in all the bars) lookout for John in the Infinity bar he's the best bar man ever.
The entertainment team are great as well but if you don't want to join in they don't hassle you.
The watersports are great as well at sunset cove a great little beach near the jerk hut with a little coral reef close to shore loads of weird and wonderful creatures to see so pack your snorkels.
we didn't visit the other beaches to be honest so can't really comment.
All in all if you've booked this hotel your in for a great time, we heard a few people complaining about trivial little things but they were petty to say the least.
We will definitely be back to Jamaica and this resort, Thanks for an amazing holiday.
