I was fortunate to stay for a weekend on business. Before travelling i saw many mixed reviews. People who complain about the hotel are obviously looking for 5 star treatment at discount price. yes, the hotel is old and could do with a touch of paint but everything else was great. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful with the manger... More

Our first holiday with Saga to Jamaica. The Shaw Park Hotel was very unsatifactory - poor food (often sent back due to under cooking or wrong temperature) very poor service,couldn't get the order right and took an age to serve (the rep at one time went into kitchen to make the toast out of frustration). The included water sports were... More

We chose this hotel to get married in, and I am glad we did. A beautiful location, we chose the gazebo at the end of the pier as our location, we only had 4 guests coming with us so we wanted it small and romantic. The service was conducted by a wonderful local priest, and the staff at the hotel... More

My husband and I deliberately chose Shaw Park after much research because we vastly prefer small, quaint properties that are as close to the beach as possible. We therefore had no expectations of a loud, concrete jungle with activity directors screaming into megaphones and buffets serving hotdogs. That said, I would not go back to Shaw Park unless it was...

If you're into the big glass, concrete and steel resorts with 6 pools and numerous restaurants this isn't it... This place is a cool throwback to a simpler time.... It was opened around 1955 and I'm sure it was "the" place to go. This place sits right on the beach... Every room is truly beach front and you'll hear the... More

Everything was perfect!! All the rooms face the beach, which is Huge. So if you want solitude you can have it. Or stay with the crowd to be sociable. Ping pong, volleyball and kayaks available. Service was excellent, Bartenders and servers were all very friendly and helpful. Food was great. Nice to have a chance to try local dishes, but... More

I, essentially, travelled alone with my boyfriend accompanying me when not working so spent a reasonable amount of time alone at this hotel. From the minute I arrived I was made to feel most welcome by every member of staff I met. Whenever I was at the bar they would always chat with me....Nadine, Marvin, Smiley, Oral, Craig....all now considered... More

You had better take lots of tip money, because you won't get a stamp without a tip. Also, the food is reheated and cookie cutter. I was treated horrible when I ask for a snack between meals for my daughter because she wasn't feeling well. There is NOTHING to do, and when I called down for a cab I was... More
