Finally! A charming, good-quality, friendly, non-cheesy resort in Jamaica with decent food and security. I like it!
Coyaba has an updated classic plantation decor that is both attractive and tasteful. It is a small boutique hotel with only three small three-story buildings. I really appreciate that the facility is not only gated, but also has a security guard that actually screens who enters the resort. The gates are not opened to vehicles without a visual occupancy check. For all its positives, security is important in this country.
The staff were not only friendly, but helpful and genuine. Smiley too. They seemed to like each other and the guests. I had the opportunity to meet the resort manager at a reception, and I found him both engaged and invested in the comfort of his guests.
The Coyaba is a solid four-star quality hotel with a friendly staff. A nice place to call home while you are on vacation.
