Although this is an older resort it was well maintained and clean. The staff was exceptional and friendly. There was a variety of food at the buffet that catered to every taste -food was tasty and fresh. The bar service was great and they did not scrimp on the drinks. On the resort there was 4 beach areas that were small bays created by break waters. This created areas for playing in the water that were protected and calmer which was perfect for those who arent strong swimmers or are afraid of water. Overall a relaxing enjoyable stay.

This was my second time to the island. It was a short 3 day stay for the festival. On arrival I had a private check-in due to my Gold status which was new to me. My room was cosy, quiet and clean. The hotel design is conducive to relaxing and the facility is impeccably maintained . There are various restaurants the cater to different food tastes with polite, well trained staff members.I'd like to say special thanks to Mrs. L Joseph-Campbell and her staff for their service and attention to detail, this made my stay even better. I will definitely return to this hotel and recommend to friends.

The hotel is a nice casual laid back hotel but the rooms are very nice and modern and cozy. Location is out of the way which is nice to get away from hustle and bustle. Food very pricey which is my only negative. Key card system works well and gives no problem getting into room at first try. Second time my mother and I have stayed there but took my daughter
who was pleasantly surprised after three days in all inclusive resort. We all would definitely recommend and will be staying there again.

Nice private hotel near Ocho Rios. The staff make you feel like you are a part of their family. Andre and Michelle at the front desk are great. I was traveling alone and didnt feel at all scared or lonely!!!

If you're looking for a vacation where you actually get to relax and enjoy yourself, this is the place to do it.
The staff is amazing and our nanny is like another member of our family. She was with our two small children 9-4:40pm and then after that for us to enjoy an adult dinner. The hotel itself a little run down, however, they are constantly maintaining it- renovating rooms, landscaping, etc. We got a 2 bed, 2.5 bath two story room- it was fantastic for our family- highly recommend it. We loved how small the hotel was- you ended up meeting a bunch of families, knowing the staff, and felt safe with your kids around the hotel without you. We always felt that someone had an eye on our kids, even with us there.
The food is average for an all-inclusive, but there are adult only restaurants and they change food options each night (jamaican, italian, etc) The buffet was my sons favorite part. Lots of choices for him (even healthy ones! veggies, fruit, smoothies, yogurt, along with the standard kid favorites)
The beach is small but perfect for little kids. There are a few pool options for everyone (including Big Blue!), and there are activities scheduled every day for kids and adults. We did not leave the resort, but there are excursions every day.
We were so sad to come home because we had the best time! This will be our yearly vacation. It is perfect for families.

Absolutely fabulous!! No complaints and will return again! The staff was attentive and always ready to answer any questions or assist in anyway possible with a smile. The staff made our stay stress free, enjoyable and we can not compliment them enough! We had our favorite staff members ( Romeo, Gerniel, and Tamaque) but all staff members went above and beyond. Great food, Great location, and Great people we could not have asked for anything more. Our tour to Dunns River Falls was made memorable by the guides that made our climb to the top effortless and filled with many laughs. Our guides for the water activities were confident and provided information and history about the island and its culture. The Sunset Cruise staff provided entertainment, drinks, and history. We met so many wonderful people that I can not possibly remember all their names, but they are what made our trip as memorable as it was. When someone asks us about our trip it will always begin with how wonderful the staff was and then finish with the beauty of the island. Ire Jamaica! Until we meet again.
