This is my first review I have written and do enjoy reading reviews before picking destinations. That being said I felt I had to write about our recent holiday at Fun Holiday resort. We knew that it was not a 4 star hotel going into it and did not have high expectations.
BUT it was far below what we expected.
The rooms have very hard beds, fans do not work, and the walls are really paper thin. The connecting doors between rooms has a large gap and the various smoked substances from other rooms can and will waft into your room at all hours of the night.
The food: Breakfast was horrible, greasy squishy hotdogs and it was never ready on time. We chose to eat and pay for breakfast next door at The Whistling Bird resort (which was lovely by the way). Lunch was a hit or miss but dinner was always good.
The Bar: The bartender did not like to give out drinks. It seemed like way too much of a bother to serve you and rarely cracked a smile much less a comment or two and this was the entire week.
The Beach: Is gorgeous but the section owned by this resort very packed. They picnic tables block your view and completely useless as NO ONE sat at them.
Nightime: There is 2 nights of entertainment that's it. Bar is closed and nothing goes on after dinner.
Beach Guard James is a delight.
Also waitresses are lovely.
We ended up spending much more money than planned eating elsewhere and even staying at another hotel on the cliffs for a night to have a stay in a decent room at additional unplanned expense (The Rockhouse hotel is amazing!)
We had a great trip to Negril because the beach is amazing and we were able to have fun regardless but wished we had just spent a bit more at a better resort instead of spending it anyway.
