The El Greco as has been reported previously is a 'find' for those who are a bit weary of all-inclusives. I stayed 9 full days and can't think of anything I didn't enjoy. The suites are equipped with kitchen, if you want to cook, but there is a bar and restaurant which serves excellent food. The staff from the front desk to the wait staff to the housekeeping staff are pleasant and helpful. I have no complaints whatsoever. The buildings are a bit dated but who cares. The bed was comfortable. The setting is particularly nice big forest behind, views of the ocean and beach in front. The hotel itself has beautiful gardens. Good restaurants are right at the bottom of the elevator which deposits you on the 'hip strip' with Doctors Cave Beach a few steps away and free to El Greco residents. There is a little 'commissary' on site and a convenience store at the bottom of the elevator which has very reasonable prices on everything from booze to nuts.
I loved the fact that you could choose to be active or just to sun at the pool or at the beach and return to your accommodation whenever you liked. There were plenty of tours available. The safety deposit is not complimentary. There may be some old information sheets around. I was very fortunate to spot a Doctor Bird, Jamaica's national bird who is an absolutely gorgeous humming bird with two long tail feathers. What a treat.
There was some partying on a weekend night but it closed down at a reasonable time. Otherwise very quiet and peaceful. I do plan to go back sooner rather than later.
