Yamani wrote a review Jul 2020

I wanted so badly to like this hotel and my experience there in January 2020. Besides the over priced restaurant, 1) my air conditioning didn't work. 2) our bed was broken 3) my housekeeper half cleaned the room and when we came back to the room we noticed it was half done and I ran downstairs to take a call. When I came back, my son told me the housekeeper came back while he was in the room alone and told him he "messed up her cleaning job" (all he was doing was laying on the bed). I complained to the manager and he was very gracious and admitted this was unacceptable and gave us a food credit. I was willing to look past these things but 4) and this is the kicker, they charged my card in January when I checked out and I thought it was done. I saw the charge in my account and everything. SIX MONTHS LATE On *JULY 6* while in the midst of the pandemic and moving they randomly charged my card again almost $600 completely throwing off my budget. My bank said its because they "never finalized the charge in January". I called Terra Nova for an explanation and was told I would get a call back. It is now July 28 and I have received no such call. I won't stay here again.

Dear yamani_yansa Thank you for staying with us at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel in January 2020 and for your review of our hotel. The air conditioner is your room was working but you wanted the temperature to be much lower for which we provided you with a remote control which was able to lower the temperature. One of the leg on your bed got broken and this was clearly an inconvenience for you for which we refunded you for items purchased from the bar. We thank you for being very gracious in accepting the refund as compensation. At check out your Visa card was charged for $608.11 and at no time whatsoever did we charge your card twice. The bank processing the charges experienced problems with their system which resulted in some charges being delayed. We can imagine that this delayed payment would have been quite inconvenient for you. We apologize for the problems caused and for our delay in responding to your telephone call of the 7th July, 2020. We have since written to you and provided you with all the relevant information required. Should you continue to have problems with the charges made please do not hesitate to contact me. We hope that when your travel plans next take you back to Kingston you will consider staying with us again so that we can make amends for the inconvenience caused. Yours sincerely Franklyn Eaton Operations Manager

I am actually doing a review while still at the hotel. Service has been excellent. I was actually escorted to my room. My luggage was taken to my room. Fresh fruits where offered upon arrival. Cookies left in the room everyday. I love to gym, it has just the right amount of equipment. Kristene has been very very very courteous and pleasant. Would definitely recommend staying here for business or pleasure, it has something for everyone.

Staying at the Terra Nova hotel is one of the most premier experiences you will have in Jamaica. It is truly my Fiance & I home away from home. Whenever i am visiting Jamaica this is always our hotel choice! The service is always exceptional, everyone there are great especially the ladies at the front desk. The breakfast at this hotel is undoubtedly one of the best on the island providing fresh authentic Jamaican food ackee & saltfish, i also tried the mackerel run down for the first time & i swear i could not stop eating it so Delicious! The bar is a great place to sit back and have drinks whilst entertaining friends. We love everything about this property and counting the days until we are back!

Staying at the Terra Nova (TN) hotel is one of the most premier experiences you will have in Jamaica. Starting with the awesome concierge staff, Kristine was amazing. Kristine ensured my family & I had an enjoyable stay, from securing late check-outs to providing extra toiletries in the room Kristine truly went over and above. The breakfast at this hotel is undoubtedly one of the best on the island - providing authentic Jamaican food (ackee & saltfish, johnny cake, boiled yams & sweet potatoe, mackerel, callaloo, etc). The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, washrooms are modern and extremely clean, the grounds are well manicured. Honestly, the best place to stay in Kingston (and maybe the whole island). - Alexie B. Edwards

This is an old colonial style hotel which I like, but the rooms could do with some renovation. Staff are friendly and attentive. The bar is nice in the evening and breakfast is good. The restaurant is very expensive, we only ate here once. It was more than double the cost of other meals
