A Sandcaslte would be better
Posted Apr 14, 2010
When you look at the pictures everything seems nice, but upon arrival it was not quite so.
Pretty much everything in this hotel needs to be repainted, walking towards the room you could see chunks of paint missing everywhere, on the walls, staircase railing, even the room. The bathrooms was small, the door would not close properly, the room had evidence of multiple leaks with brown spots everywhere. Mold was spotted next to the toilet. The toilet seat was broken, I'm 5'8 and the shower head reached my neck, i had to duck to wash my hair.
The 2nd bed was upstairs and you had to walk up a set of narrow stairs the size of a ladder and when you reached the top you couldn't stand up or else you would bang your head.
The decor was very bland, everything looked very old, and the bed was hard like concrete, so bad that my friend slept on the carpet upstairs instead of his bed.
You need a deposit for everything. They wanted US $10 for a remote for the TV (which was the size of a computer screen), same for a 2nd key for my friend, even beach towels you had to pay a deposit.
The location was both perfect and bad...It was perfect because it is located in the center of Ocho Rios, everywhere is a 5 minute walk, shopping, good restaurants. But it was also right in front of a Bar which was playing music till past 3am and was disturbing me while I was sleeping. I could feel the bass vibration in my bed.
