Horrible rooms, had to request a room change. Lamp socket caught fire when I plugged it in, bathroom was smelly, poor service, terrible breakfast.

Quick trip to clear my head. Mystic was perfect. Quiet , clean , central - the hotel allows you to do as you please. Breakfast was great and so was the staff. Pool clean and chairs available. Cable package needs ALOT of improvement and so does wifi but I went to sleep and chill so that wasn't too bad for me

Good budget hotel in great location in Ochi RiosPosted May 3, 2015 on Hotels
My wife and I stayed during the early part of the off season, 4th week of April 2015. The location is really good, down town Ochi Rios is walking distance, a free and a paid beach are walking distance. Breakfast was included and pretty good, it tasted fresh so I assume all local grown. The Jerk Center is 5 minute walk from hotel, VERY GOOD Jerk food! We did the Bob Marley Tour and Mystic Mountain which is right up the street. The internet is spotty at times, but it's free. The pool has no noticeable chlorine, nor did I detect a filtration system. Needless to say, the pool had local insects and slight dust/hair etc. I did however swim on two different occasions as it wasn't that bad. My wife, who is very picky, also went in the pool. Over 65% of the property is condo ownership, while the other 35% is hotel. The loft units have a wooden floor, so if your on the floor beneath a loft unit you will hear the noise from the loft unit. The staff (front desk, restaurant, grounds, housekeepers) were friendly. Note, we flew in via Kinston and took the Knutsford Express bus which was about a 2.5 hour bus ride. I would recommend that if you want to do part of your trip on one side of the island, and then another part on another side. It's too long a ride to do day trips. Costs about $35 US for 2 to go from Kingston to Ochi Rios. Flying in via Montego Bay might be a better choice if your staying on North side of island exclusively.

Close to Dunn's river!!Posted May 2, 2015
Clean room and friendly staff. Important to know although i doubt you'll want to spend much time in the room when there's so much to do. Can't wait to go back.

The hotel needs to complete painting and roofingPosted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: The staff was friendly and courteous
Cons: The hotel needs to complete renovation outside of the building, e.g painting and roofing .
Location: The location is ok for the purpose I went there for my vacation. Things to do was fine nearby
There was no division between the bath and the toilet, which I do not like. Maybe because it was one bedroom.

Discounted access to Mystic Mountain!Posted Apr 7, 2015
No toiletries in room and maintainance needed on property. Beautiful pool, amazing Jamaican and continental buffet breakfast plus heavily discounted access to the breathtaking Mystic Mountain eco fun park made this hotel well worth the mid range pricing.

The staff was absolutely wonderfulPosted Apr 2, 2015
Pros: The staff was very nice
Cons: The resort, just need an overhaul and upgrade the menu
Location: Wonderful dinning experience within the community of the resort
The staff was absolutely wonderful. The resort at as a whole needed some tender loving care. Price wise this would be a great place for students to hang out and enjoy the island.

*Don't let your first glance of Mystic R fool you*Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: 1) Close to local attractions Dunns River/Rain Forest/Nightlife (Be careful) and Park with Rides. 2) Well kept grounds and Pool 3) Food was good.
Cons: 1) Get rid of those stray cats!!!! 2) Do a paintjob on the exterior.
Location: Dunns River/Rain Forest/Nightlife (Be careful) and Park with Rides. Shopping in the center of town.
At first glance the exterior of the hotel appears to need a paintjob and some remodeling here and there. I stayed in a one bedroom suite that was very spacious, very comfortable and a good value. There is a complimentary breakfast which is good. The hotel also had a talent contest with various musicians/poets etc which was very entertaining. The staff was accommodating and friendly.. ALL in ALL I was pleased staying there for the price.

Simple, budget resort ...close to almost everythinPosted Mar 19, 2015
Pros: The rooms are simple and clean, and the hotel is close to just about everything you need to reach.
Cons: Water pressure in the shower, general external appearance of the buildings which appear run down. The reception staff are not the friendliest
Quick stay, was not looking for anything fancy and as such this met exactly what we were looking for. We did the bed and breakfast option and the breakfast was simple and good mix of continental and local Jamaican fare. Simple things could be done by paying attention to detail and maintaining a certain standard// quality that would make the hotel even better. And I would suggest some level of consistency in terms of the service mindset of the staff... particularly the reception staff, who are the face of the organization. The shuttle drivers are GREAT!
