We stayed at the GP 8/24 to 8/28. This was my third visit to Jamaica, first to this resort. My husband and I love the Jamiacan culture and the people. We always feel welcomed and happy when we are there. I have to preface this by stating our last visit was to Sandals Negril. This resort vs. Sandals - put simply, it is much cheaper at GP and Sandals only offered a better beach. Sandals nor GP is a five star hotel by US standards, (more like 3.75). The food, drink, grounds, etc. were all gorgeous similar quality to Sandals. Our room at GP was much nicer than the Sandals room. We never pay for an upgraded room anywhere we go. This trip was no different. We were in the 22 building at GP. The room was beautiful. The pillows were just horrible-- probably my biggest complaint. I recommend bringing your own. Apparently you can get an upgraded one, but I didn't bother - it wasn't that big of a deal at the time. The room with the air conditioning on was still a bit humid. Grab a second key to leave in the slot to keep you But you are in Jamaica....in August.... soooo... yep. There is not much air conditioning throughout the resort, but hey -- you are in Jamaica....in August. So go when it's cooler if you care that much, because it is humid and hot all day and humid all night. Good thing the GP pools are beautiful and enormous. The ocean was so pretty, with a nice swimming area at the Cove. It's a good walk to the LH side but so worth it - try the Jerk Hut when you are over there. The bars were attended very well with little to no wait. They do accept tips here. Do yourself a favor and tip these people. Bring singles and fives. They work very hard for you and their wages are not much. Just a dollar goes a long way, and five goes much farther. Visit JJ at the Kool Shady Bar, he is lots of fun and it is a great place to hang if it rains. We will definitely visit again.
