Reading the previous reviews I was not expecting much from the hotel. Upon arrival, the staff and people were super friendly, checked in with no hassle and the room was perfect. My partner and I literally were overwhelmed with the turn out of the room we chose which I think was the deluxe room. We watched the sunset over the... More

A family trip with 3 rooms books on the 100 block. The mattress was a bit hard and so were the pillows. However the room was clean. All staff members were very friendly. Bathroom toiletries were complimentary and so was a fruit punch upon check in. There is a mini fridge stocked with water, juices, and soda. Our meal plan... More

I stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago. Everything was nice. The food was great (traditional Jamaican breakfast every morning!) and the staff were all very friendly. The only issue we had was was housekeeping service. When extra towels were ordered, it took over 45 minutes and multiple calls for them to arrive. This is too bad, because I... More

While on assignment in Jamaica, I stayed at the Cardiff Hotel and Spa for several days. Arrangements were made to pick me up at the airport and the driver was delightful, polite, and professional. Upon check-in I was met with large smiles and positive attitudes. The hotel is located a fair distance from the beach but does offer shuttle service... More

Great spot to spend some quiet, quality time with your love. The room - I think it was a junior suite was really awesome - there was a window nook that was great to hang out at. The food was good and the staff was friendly. I had a great time.
