At GBP now .... it is Great!

We have been reading this forum since the start of December when we booked this resort. Despite all of the negative postings and comments we decided to keep with our original booking. Yes there were a few glitches getting the room that we wanted .. however the staff dealt with our concerns in a friendly and efficient manner. We were very pleased. The resort is not completed but in no way does it affect your vacation here. I would recommend this resort to any who would want to come. The price is right, the food is good, the beer is plentiful, the pool is wonderful and the people here are amazing. We will post a complete review when we get home.

Thank you for your positive post! I'm still deciding if I should go to the GBP at the end of the week. I have a few concerns from reading other people's posts: mice/roaches, staff having access to the safes, and construction noise. Have you seen or do you know anything about these issues?

Just came back for GBP.....stay away from this hotel!!!

It will be fantastic in a year or so....but right now....nothing more than a cheap cuba 3 stars .

Lots of problem in almost every room or section of the hotel.

Jamaica is nice...but GBP is a total rip off at the moment.

Thanks kdlon, it seems as though there are conflicting reports of the condition of the hotel.

I saw some photobucket shots of this place and it looks pretty good, but what I'm having problems with is what your scale is vs. that other guy that says he just came back and it is not to their liking.

I would like that guy to be more specific about what in the room was not finished.... I mean was is a plug that you would never use anyhow or was it the fire safety system??

I mean c'mon people, whats the point of blowing smoke if you can't be more specific. I've seen some pretty good places that people have said they've never been more insulted, would lead me to believe that some particular thing rubbed you the wrong way.

I'm still going, and I thank people like kdlon who actually gives a little detail.

I think everyone should read TOTTT's reviews, they're on a new thread started last night, and there should be more when time allows.... I think they will be informative, with very little bias.
