Match Resort is not your usual luxury hotel. Match is a guest house that provides a good room to relax. The grounds and the rooms are clean. The bedrooms are average size and spacious enough to relax with each room having a balcony which was good. The rooms are basic, bed, table, dressing table and an a/c unit. The bathrooms were clean and in working order. The hotel has a pool which is nice when you want to soak up some sun and have fun. Food is not included in the price but the hotel is equipped with a restaurant and bar. Meals have to be preordered the day before or in the mornings for dinner. Jodi and Maria are the front desk reps and they are sooo attentive and friendly. The location is good as it is close to the town as well as, other attractions such as beaches etc in Portland.
I visited this hotel when there was a tropical storm approaching Jamaica so there was a power cut for the entire night. The hotel did not have back up power in the form of a generator, neither did they have candles or flashlights for the rooms. I was disgruntled as we had to just lay in the dark for the entire time as not even the stairs and walk ways were lit. We were not even compensated for the inconvenience. Match definitely needs some improvements but it is a good place to just lay your head.
