“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I love the location. It's within walking distance to Doctor's Cove beach, Margaritaville, strip club, eateries, ATM, etc. Access to the beach is free with your stay. They have free wifi which was a life saver I'm a college student and had homework to turn in and I had no problems with connectivity. The kitchen was a life saver as well as I got to shop at the local's market and some other grocery store that reminded me of a Sam's Club or Costco. The living room furniture is made out of bambo so it's not the most comfortable but it'll do. The bed was uncomfortable. The pillows were flat so I slept on my lover's chest and he used the pillows. Besides when I'm tired nothing matters. They had hot water as long as you didn't take a long shower. I would stay here again just because of its location, the kitchen, the view from the restaurant, free access to Doctor's Cove Beach and the price.

I stayed here for one night because the other place I planned to stay was not available until the following day. I read several reviews and figured the location and the cost were worth it. The staff was very helpful and allowed us to check in a little early. The rooms are very big with a full kitchen and living room. The room was a decent size but the beds were very very small mini twins if you ask me. The cost included breakfast and free passes to Doctor's Cave! I think if you just want a quick getaway and just want a basic place to stay on the Hip Strip it's not a bad deal or if you are in a tight budget it will get you where you want to be for a decent price. There is a pool and an amazing view of the sea from the outdoor dining area.

Bring a extra towels because its one set per person each day and you have to wait while they wash them each day
Bring a bug spray so you can spray anything with six legs or more

Be sure their is a television in your room because only your room have A/C and Jamaica is hot' and not all rooms have a TV,

Room Tip: Only your rooms have A/C so you only need a room,

El Greco is located right by the hip strip and the famous Doctor's Cave Beach and Margaritaville. The staff checked us in quickly, and attended to all our needs speedily. Jermaine went out of his way to make sure had a good trip and Solomon our driver was great. I will definitely stay here next time I come to Jamaica.

I came as a single traveller in June, not the busiest tourist month. Recommended by an acquaintance. The hotel is a convenient short distance from the airport. It is comprised of a series of 3-storey buildings in lush tropical gardens that are well-kept by an industrious staff. Check-in was easy and informative. The suite was large and quite comfortable. The kitchen was not equipped with cooking utensils, but these were avaiable at the office if needed. All staff I encountered were friendly and courteous. The small canteen on-site was available for delicious patties (but not on Sundays!) as well as Red Stripe at the cheapest price I paid anywhere!
The hotel is conveniently located on a steep hill just above the Hip Strip. As I have orthopaedic challenges, it was great that one could walk out of the hotel restaurant and along a short corrridor to then take an elevator to the shops and restos of the strip. In that sense, I thought the location perfect - away from some of the noise, but very accessible to the "action".

We needed a hotel for one night before we made our way to Negril the following morning. Flight arrived from the US around 7:30pm and we cleared customs in 30 minutes and then jumped into a taxi for the 5 minute drive to the hotel (cost $20 including tip). Check in is very easy and the hotel is quiet. Room was good, not fancy but certainly fine for the evening. Easy to descend to the street below for restaurants and nightlife. Appeared to be much quieter at El Greco than some of the hotels on the Strip. Saw a couple of those hotels and I am glad we chose El Greco. Breakfast (included with the price of the room) on the patio was very good and the views were terrific. Overall a very nice place for a stay in conjunction with needing to get to the airport. Not fancy, but nice people working there and the property has a nice feel to it.

This hotel is conveniently located minutes from the airport and a hop skip and jump from the famous "Hip Strip" in Mobay. It also boasts complimentary access to Doctor's Cave Beach, a nice place to hang out and relax and a great place to take some nice pictures. The buildings that make up this hotel and the property itself look nicer in life than they do in the pictures on the website, so we were pleasantly surprised. The amenities are average, but clean and comfortable. Bedroom pillows could use updating/upgrading.

My one hang up was that there are no electrical outlets in the bathroom or by the mirrored vanity, which makes blow drying or styling your hair inconvenient. The breakfast, which is included with your stay, is hearty and comes with a choice of traditional Jamaican breakfast or continental breakfast. Hotel staff are courteous and friendly.

This hotel offers one and two bedroom suites which makes it ideal for families with children, multiple couples or groups of friends. If traveling with children, you may wish to request a lower floor since the buildings are walk ups and do not have elevators.

Overall, this hotel provides good value for money and a great location for those who wish to travel on a budget or who wish to travel around while on the island, staying a few days in various locations and/or who don't mind preparing a meal or two or light snack while away on vacation. If planning on preparing your own light meals, invest in some disposable plates, cups and cutlery. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave and there are two small grocery stories on site. We would stay here again.
