I stayed at this hotel march 9-16. I was a little afraid to go here after all the reviews I read before I went. We had a great time. The only reasons I didn't give it a 5 rating is because we had a problem with the air conditioning in our room. After quite a few calls to the front desk, we got our room changed the next morning. The buffet was decent, the only complaint was that the food wasn't replenished fast enough. We were able to get reservations to all three specialty restaurants.
I have to say the entertainment staff was amazing, especially DebbieAnn, Chadrick, Spotlight and Panther. They didn't care how old you were, they tried to get every one involved. They had a beach party one night, a coconut party one afternoon, a pool party and numerous different activities throughout the day.
We went to the beach everyday and only one time did we have a problem getting chairs, but DJ and Kamarley were very helpful in assisting us. We always sat close to the beach bar and the bartender, Fabion, was always very attentive to us and always served us with a smile. Yes, we tipped but we never felt pressured to tip anyone. Yes there are vendors on the beach, but we never had a problem with them either. All you have to do is say no thanks and they left you alone, we also enjoyed the vendors that sang, it was pure entertainment!
If I go back to Jamaica I would definitely stay here again! Would love to see the hotel after the renovations!!!
