February 24th - 28th.
The gentleman that took my luggage off of the van upon arrival at Toby's absolutely set the tone for a wonderful stay at this very homey and welcoming property. At no time did I feel that I was in a hotel, but the staff makes you feel as if you had been invited to someone's home for a visit. I was in MoBay (4th trip) to celebrate my 50th birthday and it was a birthday to remember on all fronts. This property more than fulfills all of the basic travel needs; clean and well maintained property and grounds, very clean and quiet room, super comfortable bed, too many cable channels including the Jamaican version of MTV, ice cold air conditioning, hot showers (both morning and evening) with water pressure stronger than I get at home and most importantly a very safe and secure environment. I did not feel the need to even use the safety deposit box at the front desk. ( For reference purposes on the US scale of hotels, think Red Roof or Days Inn.) Upon arrival, my room was not ready but that was only because in making my reservation I had said I was visiting for my birthday and the staff had blocked a very nice room for me (Room 40) on the second floor overlooking the pool and courtyard. After only one cold Red Stripe in the bar, I was summoned to my room. Mikele at the front desk and Neil at the bar/restaurant were standouts among a very friendly staff and property owner. (The bar staff can also assist you in experiencing the famous Jamaican botanical offerings - wink, wink!!) I would not hesitate to recommend this property to seasoned travelers who only spend minimal time in the room - for showering, sleeping and changing swim suits! This property is a keeper. As far as MoBay, if you are looking for that one special night out, I skipped Marguerites this time in favor of the new restaurant on the block, Nikkitas in the space that used to be The Native Restaurant. I had Surf-n-Turf (hey it was my birthday!) and it was 4-star all the way! Also, there seemed to be less hair braiders, taxi drivers and weed sellers on the Hip Strip this time. Loved the new addition to the MoBay Sangster Airport, althought when we deplaned, it seemed like we walked across the whole island to get to customs! I was also fortunate enough to be in Jamaica as they elected their first woman president on Feb. 25th, Portia Simpson and learned a lot about Jamaican politics from my "friends" at the hotel bar. And people can't seem to understand why I have been to Jamaica 5 times in 6 years - Jamaicans are a prideful people who treat you well and want you to return again and again. Enjoy this wonderful property!!
