This has to the worse hotel that I have ever stayed at. My friend called and reserved a triple room with a/c. I was the first to arrive, when I checked in they made me pay first before looking at the room. I payed $70 per night. When I got into the room it was a double room with just... More

Have stayed with this family for many years. Most accomodating, food good, units are clean and they make every effort to take care of the guests. Easy access to Ocho Rios, Dunn's River without all the crowds of OR day and night. Secure quarters. Plan to return.

Orlen and Charles who own the resort make it worth the trip. I have stayed here for the past 10 years (SWF) and brought at least 50 people down to visit with me. Laid back, easy, cheap and as good as it gets in Jamaica. Don't be lulled in by the fancy resorts - this is the real thing and... More

I found this property on a fluke.. while doing a search for a hotel that was inexpensive yet secure.

It's across the street from the beach with small shops, restaurants and supermarkets nearby. I could see using this... More
