This is by far my favourite resort in Jamaica. Excellent food, and very chill vibes. The perfect relaxed vacation spot. I have been staying there annually for the past five years, and am looking forward to the next trip in October 2013!

Hubby and I went for our honeymoon in Aug 2013 and it was amazing. The resort was beautiful and very clean, everyone was friendly and because it was off season it wasn't too crowded. We're already wanting to go back. The ONE thing I would say is that if you have a picky eater, look into the restaurants before you go. There were quite a few and we ate well, but if you're not a seafood eater, or a fancy pasta eater or love sushi, the options are limited and you have to organize your meal times. Room service menu isn't the greatest.

Room Tip: The Ocean view rooms are on the beach but if you're in a butler villa, you're across the str...

All inclusive. Food was pretty good. Our room was clean & big enough for two people.
The resort is separated though. One of their buildings is at the waters edge. One is further up the hill & they have a shuttle bus going through every 10-15 min. Was ok but would have stayed by the water if I would have known. Most of the staff were great. One young fellow who was supposed to be teaching us how to use the hobie boat was extremely rude. Some people are just not cut out for demonstrating/teaching!!
The grounds were nice... Not exquisite but nice within the fenced areas.
The beach was wonderful! Lots of lounge chairs. Rafts out in the ocean to jump off. Snorkeling was great! It was a nice holiday overall.

First off, Alex, Cristian and Mike are the BEST bartenders on the island! They made our stay even more enjoyable than it already was. The food was okay, the portions are not big but hey you get to order as much as you want. Be sure to visit China Doll and Kimones (I know it's misspelled). Jamie's bar is fun too. Also we loved the live performances that was showcased every evening. I guess the only complaint we have would be the 2hrs drive from the airport but other than that we will be back!

Room Tip: We stayed at the Great House and had a wonderful view of the main pool. Most of the attractions are...

Hotel very was beautiful. Food was excellent, lots to choose from. Beach was smaller but really nice. Very close to main hotel. Ride from airport was almost 2 hours but nice scenery. Duns River Falls is only a short ride from hotel. It's a must do if you go to Jamaica. Water was warmer than Mexico. Night time temps were awesome 75 every night.

My husband and I had an awesome vacation. The staff and food was amazing. This was the first vacation that my husband was totally relaxed. You do not have to leave the resort because they have.so much to do. It is inclusive so you never have to remove your wallet from the room safe. Dunns River is a must on their catamaran cruise.
