This was our second time staying at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay, Jamaica over our children's spring break. We were there in March 2010 and decided to return in March 2013. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 16, 13, and 6. We decided to come back to the resort becasue there is so much to do at the resort for kids and adults of all ages. Also, we really appreciated how close the pool and the beach are to the rooms.
We had two ocean view rooms on the top floor and the view was amazing! We could see all of the pool area, lazy river, and beach. The rooms are large and we even were able to get a connecting room for our three children. They can't guarantee connecting rooms, but we did contact the resort in advance by email and through our travel agent putting in that request. We were lucky they were able to grant our request.
The food at the resort is very good for an All-Inclusive resort. We loved the food especially at the Gourmet Restaurant, the Meditteranean, and the Japanese. We enjoyed the food at the Mexican as well and the Steakhouse (although not our favorite). The service at all the restaurants was great! We ate at the buffet twice for dinner and the food was fine; we just really prefer to have a chance to order off a menu and sit and relax so we went to the ala carte restaurants whenever we could get a reservation. For breakfast and lunch we went to the buffet every day and it was also good for a buffet.
The Star Friends are an added plus to the vacation. They lead lots of games and activities at the pool and the beach for adults and kids all day long. There is never a lack of things to do. The Star Friends are also around in the evening for all of the evening shows. The evening shows are fun, but we have seen them before so it does get a little repetative. It was basically the same shows as three years ago. The Star Friends are great entertainers and the guys were amazing dancers!!! It was fun to watch them dance by the pool every afternoon. They are very friendly and make sure you are having a good time.
You can get free wi-fi in the lobby and the lobby bar anytime. There is no internet access in the rooms.
I also have to say we really enjoyed our day trip to Dunns River Falls and the Dolphin Cove. Our tour guide Maxine was amazing!!! You should ask for her whenever you book tours. We went through apple vacations but she was the person who accompanied us on our trip. She gave us so much information about life in Jamaica. It was so interesting and entertaining.
I definitely recommend this resort. Our check in and check out were simple and stress free!
Hopefully, we will be able to go there again soon!!!
