Its a great family place so it would be good for you. Its pretty nice in my opinion. Starfish is also another nice family oriented a/i. I'd go with Sunset Beach if its the same price though.

This is a great affordable family resort. It's not fancy or luxurious but some place to relax and fun with your family, especially if kids are involved. The water park sets it apart from other family resort. I would definitely return with my kids. This resort will afford you the opportunity to take you family to some place fun without breaking the bank. Just go knowing what to expect and you will have a great time.

Do they have connecting rooms? We have requested one and hope it works out--would just hate for our 2 yr old and 5 year old to have to sleep down the hall from us!

I was there in 2004 while the waterpark was being built with my husband and my oldest son who was 21 then. We had a great time. I would definitely take my younger children there for a vacation. They have good jerk chicken and very good cheese burgers at the grill. I'll be in Montego Bay in "tree" mo days. I am so excited. Going to RDMB for eight days. I want to scream!!!!!!!!!

Was there twice this Winter. Feel it is a real bargain. With that being said, you should keep in mind this is a 3-4 star resort. You get what you pay for. Clean, safe, close to the airport, great views of the North Coast to the West, hills, and Mo Bay. Friendly staff, food ok, always found plenty to eat, resort is aging somewhat. Great place for young kids and families.

To the other member who asked, they do have adjoining rooms. had two in Feb. I would e-mail in advance to request.

I was there for 2 weeks in April and had a great time. As others have said, its not the most upmarket place to stay but we didn't have any problems at all. We felt very happy to let our 6 year old venture round the water park on her own with a couple of american girls she met of a similar age.

Its definitely a family place though and I would not recommend it for couples or singles.

A tip? Try for a room in the East wing as its a 2 storey building away from the main area and peaceful at night. we heard that the 2 towers were very noisy at night.

Loved Sunset!!!! Agree that it is an clean and affordable place. Stayed in the East Inn. The ocean front rooms are awesome. You walk right onto the beach. I'm sure garden views and ocean views there are nice too. Towers weren't my style but if you are on a budget...you might want to consider. Now that the waterpark is up and running, it definitely makes it more appealing for families. I went in August two years ago and the water park was not finished. I usually stay at adults only but had a relaxing, quiet time at Sunset.

The views are breathtaking. The food is good. It's not great but definitely got some good choices. Brealkfast is their specialty. Spa is nice...had the couples massage. Disco and Casino were lame. The Jerk Chicken rocks! Go on excursions and see Jamaica. We went to Dunn's Falls, horseback riding (scenery was stunning), snorkeling and even ventured out for some shopping. Now that's a treat. Get ready to bargain! It's crazy! I didn't want to pay full price for anything when I got home :)
