“Low grade package , beware!”
Reviewed April 5, 2004

We booked this holiday as a package.It was so bad we were moved to another property on the cliffs.Our room was spacious, clean and the a/c was good.Bad points were our rooms overlooking a disused jacuzzi full of mosquitoes, chicken bones served up for lunch, leftovers served from preceding mealtimes, poor security with intruders entering bedrooms,and a murky pool.When I got home I discovered clothing and clinique cosmetics missing. We paid almost brochure price for this holiday, it was not a rock bottom deal but to be honest it was not acceptable. The best meal we had was at a cafe in Savannah la Mar, the real Jamaica at Jamaican prices.If the management of this hotel dispute this review I can supply full details or maybe First Choice (U.K) can. For a good deal on day trips, Steve can be found outside the hotel, nearby the jerk chicken place, he will take you where you like and wont rip you off.

We enjoyed our 10 day stay at Daniel Village. Our room had an equisite garden view. Although most of the hotel is across the street from the ocean, there was a private beach area as well as a beach bar. We had excellent service during our stay. We, too, enjoyed having our own kitchen attached to our room, which we used! The only quirk we noticed with the hotel is that at times, the water pressure was light, during peak times. This is a beautiful place for a traveler on a budget.
