I am a veteran Jamaica traveller. I stayed at this property from Jan. 10-14/07.
Pros: this property has the potential to be awesome. Nice layout of this property.
a/c worked great and not loud
Cons: Pool needed alot of attention (I'm a pool expert), it had quite alot of mustard algae. The water level was too high and did not enable proper skimming of debri.
Location: although spectacular view, it is on a very busy noisy truck road - too bad as it really did impact my stay. It was difficult to hear when eating thus zero conversation.
It is also not close to anything else. Therefore cabs will run you $20 return into town.
The restaurant had wonderful staff but I found it overpriced and had a very limited menu. However, the staff went out of their way to make you something else if possible.
Bar again was overpriced. For a Tropical Mystic in town is $80 JA or about $1.20 US and at this restaurant/bar I was charged $4.00 USD each.
Unfortunatley you cannot walk to anywhere else to eat (there is one spot but it's geared to tourists so it's expensive also) so you are stuck adding $20 onto your in town food or eat at the overpriced restaurant. So my biggest issue is it's location.
For anyone looking for a great place to have a wedding reception this spot is set up perfectly for that.
I would stay there again for the same price.
