I went to the Terra Nova with very low expectations and i was pleasantly surprised. The driver the resort arranged to pick me up from the airport (Collin Bell) was charming and professional, i higly recommend him. As soon as the taxi pulled into the driveway Richard was there in his white gloves to open the door and grab my bag, he escorted me to the lobby and introduced me to the receptionist. As soon as i was checked in Richard was back with my welcome drink and escorted me to my room. This was the biggest surprise, the room was spacious, clean, there was a sitting area with a fridge, i got a welcome fruit basket, water. The only drawback was that the safe was way too small, it will not hold a laptop or ipad at all, i think for a business hotel this should be corrected because people will want to lock away these items. I was never in need of any towels or toiletries for the room.
The quality of food was excellent, the complimentary breakfast was another surprise for me. The variety was great ( take note that the breakfast is advertised as a JAMAICAN breakfast) it has JAMAICAN food, do not go expecting pancakes, waffles and all that North American food or you will be dissappointed. The food prices are expensive but very delicious and the wine costs are just plain ridiculous $40 per bottle for the house wine, what a joke especially when i left at least 6 bottles of wine at home, so i opted to drink water with my meals.
I enjoyed my stay very much and i will definately recommend to family and friends
