Nice beach right in the hotel vicinity and pools if you want some variety. Serves so very well if you don't wish to go too far.

Not as advertised. Constantly fighting with conference groups as it seems there is a large group from different conferences daily. Beach is shallow and small, overrun with sea grass limiting the amount of swimming area. Bar runners clean up your cups but dump straws and napkins onto the sand. One member of management cut into the buffet line and decided to have two others join him and serve them while visitors waited. They brought in craft vendors which is good because you will get mobbed when you leave the property. Food was terrible. Family got sick three days and ate elsewhere. Majority of staff looked as though they can't be bothered. The rest were charming and helpful. Entertainment was pitiful except for the afternoon parties on the pool deck below the lighthouse. It was almost as though the entertainment manager is embarrassed because they did not showcase anything remotely jamaican traditional. And the entertainment center is hidden in the cut where there is a rancid odor (garbage or septic) that hits strong when there is a good wind in this sauna of an entertainment center.

They need to close, revamp and rededicate their efforts. Would not recommend this hotel.
