Great beach, good food, friendly staff
Posted Jan 3, 2017
This property has a great beach, and you are able to snorkel right there on the property. The waterpark is a huge plus for the kids. As all-inclusive resorts go, the food is solid. No, it's not like dining at restaurants in Chicago or New York City, but there are plenty of good options. The grounds are quite pretty, and the staff is so friendly, albeit slow at times. But it is, after all, Jamaica, so they take it slow and relaxed down there. Our room, which admittedly was just the basic room, was not inspiring: fairly basic, cramped for a family of four, and nothing special. But aside from sleeping, we weren't in there much, so no problem. There are suites available, so if you can splurge, you probably should. While we typically like trying different resorts, nothing would stop me from returning to this one. It's nice to be in Runaway Bay since there are a bunch of excursions near Ocho Rios.
