First let me say I had a blast on vacation, this year vacation for me was in March versus July or August. We stayed at the Iberostar Grand hotel in Montego Bay Jamaica and it was nothing short of what I expected. This was a return trip for me and it have been about 3 years, I was greeted by William my skycap who remembered me and yes we connected. At the check in counter I was also welcomed again by Jonay Guerra one of the front dest managers at the hotel. We got a welcome drink which is pretty standard and then went to our room. What Jonay did was look up my last stay and guess what, he gave us the same room I stayed in the last time I was at the hotel and I had a huge smile on my face.
Dinner was great every night we went to a different place to eat, if you stay in the Grand you can eat at any restaurant in the 3 hotel. Sorry , did I mentioned 3 hotel, yes 3. I had breakfast in my room on the balcony every morning for the remaining 5 days and it was on schedule between 0900 and 9915. My assign butler was fantastic, he answered every question I had and ensured me that breakfast will be just the way I like it.
My room was immaculate, it was clean from the moment we got into the room until we checked out on our last day. Our house keeper made sure we were satisfied with the room condition daily and she was very good to us. Our room included a balcony with a great sea view, I took pictures of several cruise ships passing by during the day and night. We even saw a night show during one evening after dinner.
As mentioned the hotel. Insist of 3 hotels, the Grand is strictly for adults and the entertainment is design for adults. We were entertained the entire stay, during the day I did some free style swimming and snorkeling. I also took advantage of kayaking, sailing and windsurfing which was fun for me. At night we got us several cocktails and then check out the show then back to the bar for a night cap. The bartender was great he remembered me Nd took great care of me and yes he also welcomed me back.
Here is the only negative I have, they have a new restaurant called the Jamaican but they only have two dish which was considered Jamaican dishes. What I expected was some different variety of Jamaican dishes to choose from and I was very disappointed. I hope on my next. Is it if will see some change to reflect more Jamaican dishes and yes I will return.
My rating for this hotel is a 9.5 out of 10 and yes you guess it I took points away for the restaurant not having enough Jamaican dishes. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning on visiting Jamaica. Great job to the staff and managers, oh please excuse me but I much mention internet. I use I phone and iPad daily on the beach, yes I did say the beach. Wireless on the beach and through the hotel and if you are staying at the Grand it is absolutely free.
