“Great Location”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The hotel is on the hip strip and minutes away from night life. Margaritaville, Rumors bar/pool hall, and Moods strip club are within walking distance (less than 5 minutes). No taxi needed. They're strict on guests bringing visitors at night. Admissions to Aqua Sol beach was beach for guests of this hotel. Breakfast wast great. They serve longer on the weekends for brunch. There's a wonderful pool up the hill in the back of the property. The bar stays open pretty late. The Chinese restaurant next door has a great lunch special.

The good things about this hotel were the airport shuttle, included breakfast and the pleasant staff. The hotel itself is very basic, but very clean. The worst thing about it was the noise coming from the nearby bar...music, motorcycles, loud talking and fighting until 2 AM.

Service from front desk is poor and managers do not know how to handle situations such as theft. There is also no securitgy at the gate. Rooms are basic, had to ask for an iron for the room. Executive Ocean floor was just plain, nothing special except the tv. Best thing about the executive suite was the view.

My now fiancée and I stayed here for six nights. First floor nice ocean view but because of the Easter holiday the bar next door would play loud window busting music from 11pm until 3am!!! Other than that the stay was memorable.. We ate at the on site restaurant and the food was delicious but at 15.00 a plate it better be. We had a great server named Darin!!!! He was very patient with my fussy fiancé. We ventured to margaritaville and had drinks and dinner very very pricey. $105 for drinks and two dinner entrees. Did some shopping on the hip strip and ate at the pork pit!!! First time staying at a non all inclusive and I spent more money then if I would've stayed at an all inclusive. My fault not the hotels. The housekeeper was friendly and always had a smile on her face...I would stay again but in a different room, junior suite or executive suite would be my first choice but they were booked when we went to check in.

It's conveniently located on the strip, the room is clean, basic, bed is comfortable, we had a room on the second floor facing the garden so it was nice and quite, bathroom is huge but definitely needs some maintainance, otherwise it's usable, good shower pressure, I think I didn't have high expectation since it's consider 2.5 stars hotel, and I was the the traveler who'll spend much time in my hotel room besides sleeping. Staffs are friendly, Henry the guy who picked me up from the airport--yes, they offered complimentary airport pickup since it's only 10 min away. there's complimentary breakfast every morning from 7-9am w local foods in the front of the hotel overlooking road and waterfront! it's a good experience and i'll say I prefer the local food over typical continental breakfasts. There's a private beach right across the street, sadly I did not get to visit due to our limited time and one day when we actually wanted to but it was closed. Staffs were not very helpful w tours and areas to goto, but that's just the nature of Jamaica, there's not too many organized tours without trying to bargain, with the exception that if you book it from the cruise and resorts. It's right across from Margarita, walking distance to Dr cave beach (altho the beaches there are nothing compare to Negril), walking dist to downtown and craft market (that's where we get most of our souvenirs from-remember to bargain!) and also walking dist to my fav eatery at montego bay--porkpit!

Overall, it's been a good experience for 2 days we stayed there! hopefully they'll get that elevator fixed soon!

A picture can tell a thousand words, or lies, so don't be fooled by the pictures promoting this place. The room we stayed in was outdated and the bed very uncomfortable. Even if the beds were more comfortable, I doubt it would have helped given the noise from the road. The staff acted as if we were an inconvenience and not at all attentive. It was quiet a walk to the Aqua Sol Beach which was down the road from the hotel and the beach itself was not great. We got home more stressed than when we left!

Room Tip: I don't know if any tips can help you here.
