The worst thing is taking a shower in cold water. Stinky Old horrible rooms. I have to give it to the staff they really work hard to make sure you have everything you need. Seriously, this hotel needs an update. It's the ugliest hotel I ever stayed on. Do yourself a favor, avoid!

Dear Raycee, We value your recent comments made on Tripadvisor and we appreciate your visit !. Undoubtedly, we are not a new hotel as those in other areas of Ocho Rios, but we still maintain the traditional style and charm. The wooden floors in the Lobby and the antique furniture makes us different from other Resorts. We are really sorry... More

I wanted a get away to a new area and searched and found this hotel. Very reasonable rate. This resort is not a five diamond but it's very great. RAQUEL the front desk agent checked us in.

Laughed at my wife when she asked for the water sports, Hobbie cats, sunfish etc.. Look closely at very small beach, good camera angles, props( water sports) that are not onsite. Probably great if you are looking for hospice, and they even play American 70's and 80's music with a slight Jamaican sound (not why we go to Jamaica). Manager... More

I was with my husband to celebrate my birthday. We enjoyed every moment since we been there. Wonderful people, food was awesome. It's hard to believe that people could be so helpful. During our entire trip .... Choosing shaw park hotel was the best thing for us, next time on our visit we'll definitely stay there again.

First off, I went to this resort with a group of 13 people (aged 19-24). We quickly realized that this resort is mostly for an older crowd as we were the only people there that was under 45-50. Therefore, this resort is not for anyone thats looking for something really exiting, or to meet other young people! The hotel itself... More

I didn't have high expectations after reading these reviews, but I really had a good relaxing time. Very quiet, staff are very courteous. Food was good. If you want to relax, this is perfect.

Our trip was all about spending time with our daughter, son-law-law and grandson. We chose Shaw Park because of closeness to son-in-law's extended family. We had read reviews prior to booking but went ahead anyway and booked as we take reviews with a grain of salt. This is a small 94 room resort! Billed as authentic Jamaican, which indeed it... More
