I'm going to give u the good the bad and the ugly
We came to Jamaica for my friend's wedding. We stayed in building one (which I advise everyone to do) The service was amazing. The staff was very nice, the food was ok (I'm used to "real" Jamaican food). The rooms were nice and clean. The drinks can be weak but if u ask for more alcohol they will gladly give it to u (also ask for specialty drinks they are usually stronger)
My 12 year old came with us and she had a blast. She hung out with kids her age, went swimming, ate what she wanted, ordered virgin drinks from the bar, took part in the free water sports, went to the beach and half the time I didn't see her (very safe resort)
This resort is great for families with children. The entertainment staff was awesome. They did everything from excercises on the beach in the morning -to beach parties at night.
The bad- if your a bride make sure you have everything outlined and someone there that can help /coordinate your wedding the day of. The resort coordinator Deon SUCKED, very rude and unprofessional
The ugly- SAND FLEAS/FLIES. ....O.M.G they are the worst. You need something stronger than off (like deet) to keep them away. I have close to 40 bites on my legs, arms and back and I wore off the whole time I was there. They come out if its raining and also at dawn or dusk. If you never experienced this before its like having the chicken pocks (look and feel) pack with you benadryl, cortizone, deets and calamine lotion or alcohol to dry it out. I was almost in tears my last night there. Stay away from the far end of the resort in front of building 4 that's where they seem to be.
Overall I would stay here again and I would recommend this to my close family and friends
