This place really frustrated me. It was truly one of the best views we had in Jamaica but the facility itself just needed help. The people were very nice, especially the breakfast chef (her omelettes are amazing) but the accommodation in the rooms and hallway was just a drag. We toughed out two nights with a leaky AC, dirty sheets... More

The pictures are deceptive the hotel is terrible. After a very long trip and late arrival into Ocho Rias we had no choice but to stay for 1 night before finding a better hotel. We stayed in room 5 and I paid extra for air conditioning. The room was dirty, the air conditioning leaked, the shower was filthy and there... More

I loved waking up in the morning and seeing the beautiful blue sea right outside my balcony and it was enjoyable to watch the party boats as they docked to let the tourists swim. Brandon and his father are very accommodating hosts and offer a pleasant greeting/assistance daily. I found all the staff pleasant and helpful. The hotel is not... More

I knew the hotel wasn't a 5* when i booked it, but i will definitely be staying there again with my future visits to Jamaica. I found the staff helpful, friendly and polite. I found Brandon and his family very accommodating and extremely helpful when i needed to rush my daughter to the hospital, there weren't no if or buts... More

Me and my boyfriend have been for quite a week in this hotel. The bedrooms are clean and essential, the personnel was really nice and gentle and helped us in our hour of need. The little beach of the hotel is beautiful and 10 minutes to swim there is a splendid reef. It was also great to eat the delicious... More

My review is based only on observations as I could not even stay one night. The hotel is off the main road and down a lane, not the easiest of places to find. The receptionist was pleasant whilst checking in. She did her best to be welcoming but other than this and the fact that there is a seaview the... More

Lovely, rustic, home from home kind of setting. The staff are attentive, the manager is a genuine good guy. The restaurant staff are friendly and have good knowledge of all you need to know. I didn't spend too many nights but I could have stayed the whole two weeks. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, it was a... More

A great little hotel, friendly staff, just a shirt walk from town, with its own wooden dock, bar area pool and tiny private beach. Every morning before breakfast I swam round to Jamaica Grand and back, to work up an appetite. I expressed an interest in cornmeal porridge, as described by Bob in 'No woman no cry', and the staff...
