Just returned from a trip here. We stayed at the preferred section. The staff were very nice for the most part. We decided to leave tips for the person who cleaned our room every day, otherwise no tips were left during our stay and we never felt pressure to leave them. Like others, we did enjoy the jerk chicken cart. Overall, the food was decent and the restaurants have a very tropical upscale design to them. Not spectacular, but it never is at all inclusives in my experience. The pools were clean. The lounges on the beach could use cushions. They do seem to have a bit of an ant problem. We had a few ants in our bathroom and on a bedside table. None on our bed ever though. We didn't complain about it. If you do complain, they will come spray the room for you.
We encountered no Mosquitos, no creepy bugs other than the tiny ants.
The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and are appropriately tropical. The hotel grounds are very clean. No trash anywhere. While on property, it feels very safe. The rooms are very nice and while not immaculate like you might experience stateside at a luxury resort, they are clean enough.
If this were a hotel in Hawaii, I would have been disappointed mostly because of the ants and the food, but when you are in the third world (or perhaps you consider Jamaica to be second world), you need to temper your expectations a little bit. With that in mind, this hotel greatly exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time.
