Sort it out. Service then Profit. Poor VY POOR.

Room size and bed great. Service from staff sketchy some staff attentive nothing was a problem. Other swirly like you were a problem. Internet connection you had to get out of bed out of your room and literally stand near a modem to get a sign. Breakfast although you had paid as part of your stay staff were instructed by owner/management that GUEST WERE ONLY ALLOWED ONE SERVICE PER PERSON POOR and Profit lead. The food provided above average though portion size made me think I was on diet. Three pieces of chicken which Really equaled to one chicken piece chopped into 3 pieces which made it VERY BONEYARDS TO EAT. Poor, I’m a qualified chef and ran my own business so I’m aware of cheapest of his less than Mediocre Service. One morning my festival were oil soaked I brought it to the attention of head waiter (or he seemed like he was)he replied because, I had eat the other items on my plate NOT the festive he could not do anything POOR VERY VERY POOR. We my family, brother and sister were told that you a PAYING GUEST ONLY ALLOW ONE BREAKFAST PLATE Per morning per person. We didn’t have lunch or dinner. The primy cock-a-hoop management decided to have a staff meeting in the dining room. Let me just explain. The dining is circled by all the hotel room just one flight of stairs up. It’s echoes and carries noises. It’s a beast day it’s Jamaica. We had diet breakfast went for a short walk sun high thought we’d all go back to the room for a siesta. noise.

Needs renovation and less noise. Delicious food.

There was an event the night of our visit which should not have been an issue but for the fact that the way the hotel is built, the main event room is adjacent to all the guest bedrooms. With no sound absorption or way to cancel the noise, we were warned that the loud noise and music from the event until midnight. The rooms should not have been made available for booking with the event taking place, since there was no way to cancel the noise despite the event being for a good cause. We did enjoy the breakfast included and the food was delicious and there was great variety. They had servers who were helpful in selecting from the breakfast options. The room did not look like the pictures. The place is getting close to wanting a renovation. The wifi did not stay connected for long and the signal was weak from inside the hotel room and the satellite/cable box would not stay steady, so we had to spend over 30 minutes to seat it correctly so that the television would show and the loose cables would not work. The key to the room did not work and I had to ask for help from staff to open the door as you needed to pull and twist the nob while turning in a certain way. The bed sheet had stains on it and while the room was booked for 3 people, there was one towel - so we had to go and request towels and washcloths.
