Not all inclusive resort & Bad service
BARBARA W.
Oct 07 2017
I took my mother here to celebrate her 70th birthday. Holiday Inn resort made it a horrible experience. At check in the guest service rep was rude to my entire group of 10 people. She rolled here eyes, gave snippy remarks such as "like I said your room will not be ready till 3pm so go do something!" The lobby bartender lady was rude. I asked for a drink that included rum she asked me did I want rum in it I replied but of course. She slammed the drink on the corner the drink was poorly made you can clearly see the rum in the frozen drink. To make this more weird she demanded a tip. While waiting for our rooms we wait on the Amistar rep to tour us and tell us when our departure time will be for the shuttle. She never toured us, told us to come back the day before because she does not know when the shuttle would come to get us on the day of departure. We kept the do not disturb hanger on our door. To only come back to our room with the housekeeper inside cleaning. I explained we did not need service she told us well I am going to finish up here. Then stood by the door waiting for a tip! Finally my friends and I wanted to part take in the water sport paddle boating. Of course we did need help a little bit the life guard came to help. All is well until things was not going his way and he yelled at my friend and told her "GET THE FUCK OUT THE BOAT!" then flipped her foot out of the boat. To print off your boarding passes it cost 15.00 for 10 mins on the pc to print. Finally, not all the restaurants are all inclusive some is at a cost this is in addition to what you have already paid. The one restaurant Sea breeze was nice yet it was up charge (another additional fee) if you wanted steak. Overall I will not go back not all inclusive the staff was so rude on top demanded tips. It was a good trip to Jamaica if you just do not deal with none of the staff there or eat there. Just do not go to this one at all.

Never Stay there again

Our room was to be a Junior Suite. It was very small, couldn't move in the bathroom and no bathtub. No room service like I was promised. Elevator didn't work half the time, and construction on our floor the entire time. If we hadn't been out on excursions most of our trip, it would have been a disaster. Very disappointed in the hotel. Up charges for everything!

My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Sunspree for 10 days. We really enjoyed this property. It is a little dated and could use a remodel but is very clean and the views are amazing. We found the staff to be very helpful. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurants and the buffet. Our apple representative at the hotel, Chantelle, was very helpful and gave us great information about excursions.

For a smaller resort it is very nice and clean. Very family friendly. We didn't have children with us, so the adult pool and section is very nice and away from the main pool activities and kid commotion. The little island of the beach was so enjoyable and the snorkeling around it was awesome. We never had a bad meal from any of the restaurants. For those who are budget minded, this is a nice place, but don't expect any frills. If there is are any drawbacks to this resort it would be that two of the four restaurants are not air conditioned and neither is the buffet, so if you like to get out of the heat to eat, sometimes it can be a little warm and humid during dining.

The housekeeping staff were pleasant. Most of the staff seemed to hate their jobs. If you want lots of free food, loud Jamaican music and free sweet drinks go to the Holiday Inn Montego Bay. If you want good service with out an attitude go someplace else.

This hotel was perfect for our family of four. Our 2 kids: ages 7 and 9 had a blast playing in the pool and in the water of the Caribbean. As parents, we felt comfortable letting our kids walk to the different areas of the resort without us constantly by our side. Would definitely love to stay here again!

We had a fabulous time on our vacation. The Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and always greeted us with a smile. This hotel was not the fanciest, but it was perfect for our family. There was a lot for our kids to do and I felt comfortable letting my five year old run around a litle on her own. The food was good, there were things that were excellent each day and things that could be improved, but overall there was plenty of good food that both the adults and kids enjoyed. The property was well-maintained and large and it never felt really crowded. Also, I felt very comfortable, it was a family friendly place and I felt like there were people of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, cultures, etc all just having a good time together (which was refreshing with current events). All in all we had a great vacation and I would return (tomorrow if I could)!

We absolutely LOVE this place! The people are aMaZiNg! Keshawn, Damian, Richard, Kwasi, Paul, Christopher, Rossonai, gosh we love them! The service at all places in the hotel was great and the entertainment team did such a great job with the kids--and adults; although I have to give the bartenders, especially Richard and Damian, credit for the adult fun as well. This was our 2nd trip here and we're already counting down to next year!

Very much a hotel geared towards families and the 'bashment' crowd. Hard working staff who offer excellent service given their working conditions. Hotel is rather rundown. Buttons missing from lift which needed a good clean. Rooms are tired and need to be remodelled, however suites were obviously of a higher standard. Doors on balcony unable to close as a very odd piece of metal is used as a 'lock'. No nets on doors so unable to take advantage of the sea breeze without the fear of being inundated with insects. Drinks taste like they've been watered down and selection of local rum was disappointing. Food was generally acceptable however one chef working on the egg station was disappointing, however credit to the chef as they remained undeterred by the extensive queues each morning. Management needs to review the kitchen operation to ensure that staff are not overwhelmed and clients do not experience long periods in queues.

This is my third trip to Jamaica. This is the first time I have to say I had a really awful stay. This hotel is in extreme need of an upgrade. First of all is if you are used to being in the thick of things this hotel is in the middle of nowhere so we paid a ridiculous amount of money on cabs to go everywhere. They should offer free shuttles during the day to go back and forth to the main strip. The Wi-Fi was horrible. the TV kept going out. My balcony was never cleaned ever from the looks of it. The elevator rides were alarming. This is supposed to be an all-inclusive resort and we were allegedly VIP but we had a constant battle just to get water in our rooms. We could drink all we wanted but don't ask for a bottle of water. The food was horrendous at the buffet, the Restaurant was barely any better. Customer service was non existent. The staff at the buffet was friendly and the view from the balcony was spectacular but that is literally the only nice thing I have to say.

I truly never do this to resorts because I always believe in making the best out of situations and that a vacation is just that- a vacation so there’s no need to stress about the small stuff. But I’m here with my girlfriends for my birthday and really wanted it to be a special time. I honestly can’t believe that as an all inclusive you have to pay extra for some water bottles to be in your room?? The rooms at best are mediocre the least you should be doing is providing some water bottles to every room. We were considering upgrading to the building 7 which is pretty much no different than what we are in now except for an extra 200 dollars we would get three mini water bottles and a couple sodas. We had dinner at the buffet and the food was good but we tried making reservations for other restaurants and everything is booked. The people here do not do anything to go out of their way to be helpful or nice. The lady at the front desk today is the only one who did her best to help us. I was really looking forward to a wonderful birthday week but it doesn’t look like it will happen here.

Damien who works almost everyday at port royal was by far the hardest working, personable, and nice employee on the resort. He makes really good drinks and makes them fast. We went to that bar 6 out of the 7 days I was on vacation just to see Damien. He made our vacation one of the best ones yet and I will return here next year just to see him.

Lovely place
