Firstly, before I complete our review I feel I must comment on the previous reviewer 'GALOCHKA1982' - has she got the right hotel?
We could not recognise any evidence of the comments made.
Like her we chose the hotel based on the many complimentary Tripadviser reviews but we were definitely NOT DISAPPOINTED.
We had a standard garden view room on the second floor of block one looking out directly over the natural pond adjacent to the Spa (with its resident heron and terrapin) and a side ways view to the beachfront.
The room was delightful, clean, fresh and well appointed and well looked after by the efficient and unobtrusive room staff
The food and restaurants were excellent - the only comment we would have about the latter was the excessive use of the Air Conditioning in the Lychee which made it like a fridge. We only used the Lychee once for this reason.
This comment also applied to the Internet Cafe
Now the big plus - the staff were delightful - friendly and efficient and aways well presented in crisp clean uniforms
The inclusive activities were excellent - being a yacht sailor of many years we made particular use of the bigger Hobie each day and that was great. The large catarmaran cruise and the snorkell trip was excellent.
We liked particularly the relaxed atmospere of the hotel with no activities in your face.
The evening entertainments were excellent - of a very high standard
The beachfront location on the western end of Jamaica in beautiful Bloody Bay was superb. Being sheltered from the prevailing NE Trade winds it was both excellent for flat fast catarmaran sailing further out and the most relaxed smooth sea swimming on the beach. We were never even tempted by the large well appointed pool with its associated jacuzzis
Being naturists (we dont like the american word nudist) of many years we were particularly influenced in the choice of the hotel by its having a designared Naturist area and the associated dedicted jacuzzi was a real plus.

The only adverse comment we would make was the injudicious use of the Air Conditioning in both the rooms and some of the public areas.
Us Europeans come to the Carribbean to be warm and it helps in the process of our temporary acclimatisation to the overall higher ambient temperature is not to be plunged into locally very cool environments.
AC takes proportionately more energy than does heating and has a very large carbon footprint.
Another environmental comment concerns the changing of the towels - while it was very nice to have clean towels each day, even when we hung them up they were changed.
While we realise this is a fine balance with some guests it has a high environmental cost and we must all look at our activities to reduce our impact.
We have travelled all over the world (see our profile map) and would definitely count this as one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in
Keep up the good work - we definitely intend to return in the future
