Biggest hotel but certainly not the best!!
Reviewed 14 hours ago

Me and my girlfriend decided to book this hotel after going to there sister hotel in Mexico which was fantastic! We wanted something relaxing, enjoyable just a chill out and that’s what we got laying by the pool with the sun blazing!
But it’s not always good as it seems; upon touch down in Jamaica we received our check in cards at the airport, so no welcome drink when we got there or 5* treatment. We got our cases off the coach and had to make our own way to the room, not having a clue where we were going!
Room was good very clean and had a sea view, mini bar was stocked up, soft drinks and beer.... you have to pay for anything extra.
Unless you’re a young lady or speak the language you’re gonna wait an age to get served by the barmen at the pool bar, the bar women aren’t too bad. Apart from when they have there off days and then it’s just poor hospitality.
The servers at dinner might as well not be there, you’ll ask them for drinks (and they’ll look at you with disgust) and they’d disappear for half an hour!
All of the a la cartes had very little air con in despite it being 30degrees. We ended up walking out of the Italian half way through as did 5 other tables because it was hotter inside than out.
The buffet service has a different theme every night however there might be one item of food that changes. everything is the same day in day out breakfast, lunch and dinner, by the second week you’re just eating the same.
We were also told by a local Jamaican that the hotel is very expensive from the shops to the taxi service to go out! $6-9 for crisp and $20 just for a taxi out. He said walk to the front and the taxis will charge $2 to go the shop.
If anyone has booked it I hope you enjoy it, but I won’t be going back

Wedding Destination Vacation
Reviewed 23 hours ago

Although the carpets hallways carpets needed cleaning, and the halls were a little warm, we had a good time.
We choose a room with an ocean full view. Our room was centrally located, and very comfortable.
Oops, our safe failed to work twice, but, someone came and adjusted it quickly; this diid not impact on our vacation. Apparently, a transmitter was needed; somehow, I felt this was not a new problem, but parts are hard to get on the island.

The staff was wonderful, and addressed all our needs. Our room was serviced and keep clean. Anything that was missingcwas replaced quickly.

The staff at the Orchedea and the Grill were Outstanding; Very welcoming and Attentive. The food was good; I always found something I liked.

We attempted a dinner at the Mikado, but the air conditioning. was out; We left.

The food at Don Pancho (the French restaurant was good). We went to Orchedea for dessert; great options.

The beach was lovely, but somewhat rocky; bring water shoes. Lovely white sands, and clear waters. We were snorkeled and saw many fish. Security and lifeguards were out; very safe.

The drinks on the terrace were Great. Ask for what you want, and you get it.

I was never met with rudeness; maybe, a little assertiveness- but that is okay with me.

My husband Always watches as I go to the bank to get dollars, fives, and tens. He criticizes, and then reaches into my stash to Tip. Yes, I believe in tipping for service rendered. Those that provide service are not paid well. Most of the money that we pay for our vacations does not go to them. To Us, the most important people are those that clean our rooms; Yes, we tip.

For Us, everything went well. We gave courtesy and respect. We received courtesy and respect.

Our experience.

Poor service
Reviewed 1 day ago

The resort is very big. Not clean.. the resort needs renovation. Carpets in the hallways are so dirty and old. The pool is nice and very big.
The resturant have very poor to average quality.
Don’t recommend this resort and definitely not coming back.
We were part of privilege club and did. We did not get ant butler, special service.
The staff were not friendly.

Another wonderful stay
Reviewed 1 day ago

Thank you for another wonderful stay last October. The most beautiful beaches, the water is perfectly still and calm. This was another relaxing holiday. There is beautiful snorkelling with lots of coral in one of the little bays at the hotel. Wonderful large junior suite room. The food was good, but next time I come I am going to upgrade to the Luxury side. Not really anything to add to my last review, I will be back, it is my favourite home-afrom-home destination.
