I read the reviews on this site and found them to be favorable for this resort. That is the main reason we decided it would be a good choice. We had the best room in the entire hotel and our experience was horrible. This is a hotel - I would definitely not consider it a resort. I don't understand the good reviews - I really can't believe anyone would like staying there.
We reserved the deluxe room with superior kitchen. The superior kitchen included a hot plate and a mini fridge. The room was filthy and smelled of mildew. There was no way we could stay in that room. We upgraded to the one suite, room 60, for a ridiculous "discounted" price. Room 60 is nice. It has a separate kitchen, living room and bedroom with a king bed. It was clean - no bugs. We did not have warm or hot water for three days. We lost electricity one night due to an accident because the hotel doesn't have a generator. I woke up in the middle of the night to the air conditioning unit pouring water out onto the floor, all over my laptop cords. The doors and windows are old - you can hear every sound from outside. All night you will listen to constant horns honking, fighting, yelling, sirens, etc. There are no phones in the rooms. We were the only guests on the top second floor! We did not feel safe, two women staying there. My mother fell on a step up at the front desk and injured her knee badly. The only medicine they had was peroxide. They had to go get ice from the bar down by the ocean. The beach is not private and you can not relax for a minute because locals harass you continually to buy stuff. The restaurant is outdoors only and is okay. We weren't thrilled with the selections. There is no gift shop even though they advertise having one. The pool was deserted but basically clean. The waterfall is painted on - it is not real. The lobby is nice although hot and dark. The only thing good about this hotel is the staff. They really were wonderful, but that's IT.
We could not wait to get home - this was a nightmare vacation for us. I was in Jamaica before and stayed at Sandals - the experience was wonderful. My advice to anyone is to stay with the very well known resorts in Montego Bay.
