We stayed for a week in July and truly had a wonderful time. The accommodations, pools, activities, service and beach were all top notch. We dined mostly at the sit down restaurants. The buffet at the Mill was fine but some of the food was hit and miss. The jerk chicken pizza at the pizzeria was great. Dining on the beach at Stewfish was a great experience. The take out at the BBQ restaurant tended to be understaffed and it appeared that there was a patty shortage in Jamaica.
You could eat and drink to your heart's desire. There were dozens of choices for spirits and the like, however if you wanted beer the only choice was Red Stripe. I really didn't understand why you could get JD, Crown Royal and what seemed to be dozens of other brands of alcohol but only one type of beer.
The staff were very nice throughout the resort except for the guy running the water activities at the beach. He seemed annoyed that he had to deal with people. During our meals we always had someone come by and ask if we needed anything else.
If the resort did have a major blemish it would be it's perceived value. Yes, many things were included but at the same time there always seemed to be extras that were rather pricey. We were 2 adults and 2 kids but since one of our kids is a teenager we had to pay pretty much an adult rate even though they were not old enough to drink. The resort also charged extra for Wi-Fi and when I brought this up with the concierge staff they said that this was a complaint they were hearing on a regular basis. We did eventually get ours for free but it took a day or two to get things sorted out.
