Shaw Park Beach Hotel & Spa
Ranked #29 of 35 Hotels in Ocho Rios
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Ok, you pay a lot to go away at Xmas but your return does not always reflect the price. Shaw Park has been around for a long time and it shows in good and bad ways. The rooms are adequate but a little tired, the pool is smallish but nice but has no view. The beach is marvellous , long quiet and loads of loungers so no fight for a seat. Food is plentiful but not special although the kitchen will accommodate for difficult diets. What saves the hotel is the staff who are helpful , chatty and warm. I am loving my stay here but you have to accept old school Jamaican hospitality rather than conglomerate slickness. Suits me. If you get a deal, give it a chance.

The staff were great. The food not bad. A great location to get to most of the must do things. We had a great time and really felt comfortable there. We had our own driver for all of the things we went to and got to see some local places as well.

Everything , especially the view, was perfect, except for the food. I can't say anything too negative about the food, but just giving a reason why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. The food didn't taste that good, although I didn't get sick from it or anything. However, the view while eating outside made up for it!

If you are looking for a place to relax, have fun in a serene setting without a lot of disturbances then this is the place! We had the best service and were treated exceptionally special by all of the staff and management. It felt more like a family than anything. I want to thank Cherise, Mrs. Rhoades(sp), Anthony, Willie, Jamar, Smiley, Karen, Chef Harris, Chef Chris, all the other wait staff, housekeeping and maintenance. We were awakened every morning by the sounds of the waves sweeping across Cutlass Bay and the grounds people happily working. Once we came down for another delicious, well prepared breakfast everyone greeted us warmly. I have stayed at Shaw Park on three other occasions and this was the best stay yet! I had friends with a fishing boat and they delivered fresh fish, lobster and crab to me on the pier. Chef Harris and Chef Chris were happy to prepare the catch any way I requested. Cherise was always accommodating when I had special requests and housekeeping even straightened up when we were in a rush to get on with our activities. We could walk down to the end of the beach at White River and easily catch a raft ride from Giovanni, Christopher, Shawn, Joe or just buy a Red Stripe from "Black" and enjoy some local conversation. My friend, Lipton, would pick me up there for day trips to fish or see Dunn's River Falls, Laughing Waters, James Bond Beach, Golden Eye, Rio Nuevo or take a stroll up to Oracabessa. He's a very informative boat captain and always looks out for you to ensure you have a great time. His cousin, John, let me go out and pull lobster, crab and fish traps with his friend Mitchie. It made for some great early morning fun! The craft market is fun but if you miss out on souvenirs, you can always pick them up at the airport, sometimes cheaper. The food at Shaw Park was fantastic! Chef Harris makes the best soups I have ever had and some wonderful main courses! Remember to ask for the special Jamaican breakfast and you will get a taste of the island food we all grow to love. If you love this place keep staying there and you won't be disappointed. My wife loved to lay out and read so I made it a point to cruise the beach and pick up what the sea washes in. Remember this is their island but it's OUR planet. Keep it clean and make it a top spot to travel!

If you're looking for a small, quiet hotel with great food, helpful and courteous staff, and a relaxing atmosphere that is totally separate from the hustle and bustle of a large, all inclusive resort, then I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to you!
