This was my first trip to Jamaica and I was very excited. I won this trip last year for my mother for Mother's Day. The two of us, including my father, arrived the end of April.
Honestly, it wasn't what i expected when I first arrived.
The room & bathroom was very basic, but the atmosphere was great. I liked the wooden windows & doors to the balcony. If you are into the modern fancy type of rooms, then you wouldn't like it. I loved it because it seemed like you were apart of nature. Almost bringing the outside into your room. We did have some ants in the shower that bothered me a little, but it was okay. Only one complaint, we did not have any hot water. I took a shower in cool water everyday. Our room was close to the front, but the traffic didnt bother us at all. The only thing I could hear were the whistling toads and the sound of nature every night. I would have liked the room to be just a little more modern or renovated.
The staff made it an excellent stay for me. They really took care of us. Especially Ramsey, he made sure vendors didn't bother us and always checked to make sure we were okay. I especially liked Captian Junior w/ the glass bottom boat. If you go, you'll understand why...The food was good, but they didn't have many selections. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The pool was closed during our entire 5 day stay, but I enjoyed the beach. Our cab driver, Chicken, was great too. He was very helpful regarding the area and took us where ever we wanted to go. We didn't have to wait no more than 5 mins of his arrival.
I would go there again because of the staff and relaxed atmosphere. I would only have changed the room (a little more modern & few more amenities). They really made my first trip to Jamaica a great one. I have fallen in love with Jamaica and will go back again.
