Went to the Suites for our anniversary with our young son. This made our 3rd trip to Iberostar Rose Hall (Grand once and second visit to the Suites). Our first trip there with a child.
This is a marvelous property with a great stretch of beach, numerous bars and restaurants, large pool etc. Although I am not entirely a fan of the big hotel feel as it can lose some of the appeal of a luxury resort, they have done well to maintain the property.
Check-in was painless. We stayed in a room in the block between the Suites and the Grand, and this is the only drawback as it is a bit of a trek to get there with dim corridors. Ask for the rooms on the other side if you can. The rooms are well appointed and were clean enough to satisfy the neat freaks that we are. They provided the best hotel crib that we have seen and our son actually slept well for outside of home the first time.
Bar service is good and they do have a good variety of drinks that should keep you happy. Just short of the very high end stuff found only Grand but is still better than most all-inclusives. They have a few Spanish house wines that are better than the average as well.
Service was excellent, the staff were polite and very helpful especially in the restaurants. They made me proud to be Jamaican, which I cannot say for all the local hotels we have stayed at.
Traveling with a child, we were happy to see that the hotel allows parents to enjoy themselves whilst supervising their children at the main pool, beach or water park. Everyone melts into one big group and the kids all make fast friends. That being said, you can still go as a couple and have a blast without having children all around you, which we have done in the past.
Now for the food, this is the reason I bothered to write a review in the first place. I used to consider the Sandals chain as being the leader in all-inclusive hotel cuisine but I was blown away by the variety and quality on offer at the Rose Hall Suites. The buffet spreads were great and we easily found food for our son. We made reservations for a la carte each night and could not have been happier. Tried the Mexican restaurant even though we are not big fans as there were no availability elsewhere and left there totally stuffed with big grins on our faces.
All together an excellent stay that will make it difficult to go elsewhere for our next trip even though we typically enjoy the variety.
