There are so many good things I can say about this hotel. I don't even know where to begin. I had an awesome time at Seastar. I will admit, I was a little leary when I turned up the small street that leads to the hotel. But once we got through the gate, I was pleasantly surprised. EVERYONE at the hotel was very polite. When I did meet the owner, Chris, he was very nice. I got a warm reception upon check-in. When I made it to my room, Room #7, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was very spacious and clean.The bed was very comfortable. My favorite part of the room was the veranda. I loved how the foliage grew up tall enough that it provided coverage from the sun. It also gave a lot of privacy. I stayed there during the earlier part of the week so it was very quiet, which I liked. The room was tended to daily by the staff. The TV worked fine, and provided enough channels.
As for the food, it was great. I did alot of eating in town, but while at the hotel, I had the jerk chicken sandwich, cheese pizza, eggs, potato wedges, bacon breakfast, and the garlic lobster. All of the portions was more than enough for two people if you are not a heavy eater. Although the meals were not included, they were priced very reasonable. I didn't have a chance to indulge in happy hour, which is from 4-6 pm. During that time, they have 2 for 1 drinks and chicken wings.
I loved the shuttle service to the beach. The bus is new and comfortable. The driver, Henry, is very nice. I also got a shuttle back to the airport. It was only $50, which I find to be very reasonable. One of the most expensive expenses you will incur in Jamaica is transportation/taxi costs. I was amazed at the price of the shuttle.
The only hiccup I had while at the hotel was the cellular phone service. The hotel provides cell phones for the guest to rent for $10 a day. You can talk all day on the phone locally and internationally. I thought that was a wonderful added feature to the hotel. The problem that occurred was not the fault of the hotel though. The cellular company switched the phones off, but the owner and his wife handled the situation in a timely manner.
My overall experience at Seastar was wonderful, and I will definitely be staying there again in the near future. Thanks to Chris, Francine, Rochelle, Samantha, Randy, Junior, Kirk, and all of the wonderful staff members at Seastar. Hope to see you soon!
