Our home away from home
JAMES S.
Apr 29 2018
While it had been 6+ years since our last visit, we were welcomed to our Jamaican home away from home with amazing love and warmth. The resort management continues to fine tune the property and the results are great. We love the ever-smiling staff who make our stay wonderful. After staying at this property many times we know we can rely on a wonderful and relaxing visit.

If youre super picky this is not the place for you. Overall it is a nice hotel with a nice beaches. The staff are very friendly. There are some parts of the resort did do need a little updating. We very much enjoyed our stay here though. The red stripe and the jerk chicken are highlights.

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
LAURA R.
Jun 27 2017
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.

Nice for budget minded people.
MICHAEL F.
Jun 08 2017
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.

Family Friendly Hotel
RYAN U.
Apr 09 2017
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!

Fabulous vacation!
MELISSA P.
Dec 27 2016
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)!

Nice location, all amenities - great value for money !

Minutes away from the airport, an excellent place for the family holiday. Has all the expected amenities,very elaborate buffets and 4 speciality restaurants. Nice pool and beach. Large and comfortable rooms, great staff. The facility,rooms and bathroom in-general, however, are dated and needs a facelift.

NOW 3 WEEKS STILL WAITING ON A REFUND

I have stayed at this property a number of times and all times the service was quite good and the family and I enjoyed ourselves. On the last occasion we had to cancel because of change of plans and still waiting on the deposit to be put back on my account at 3 weeks now. This should have taken 3 - 5 days locally. Emailed and called numerous times, contacted my bank which has no idea what is happening which is now a huge turn off. I gave 3 stars because we enjoyed our actual stays but I would say, make sure you are actually able to stay before making a deposit, no one knows how long it will take for your funds to be returned!

Hey Everyone ! This resort is alright , Close to Airport . Travelled here three times now , The Rooms are ok ,but if you want the suites you will have to pay big money ! The upgrades to the Rose Hall collection is not worth the money ! You get pretty everything except a few items that you don't have to pay for ! Smoking Sections are ok but if you don't like the smell of weed Don't go to this resort ! LOL . Main Buffett is a bust spot and great for Breakfast , I experienced the specialty Restaurants every night and so worth it ! Fo the money you spend here ,there are nicer ones in Mobay so pick and choose !

I cant say if it is because of the chain of hotels but this one was fully organized. People were mostly welcome and ready to assist even before asked. I ve been all over the carribean and never met that kind of hospitality. You felt home there instantly. Probably jamaican people are that kind and happy and positive and it reflected in this place. The hotel as a building needs serious renovations cause its old. Its like an american old motel 3 stories high. Rooms inside are ok mostly new but the ac and the bathroom is terrible. I will admit it was super clean all day everywhere and i never saw that anywhere either. Kudos to the management of this place. Amazing. Now the rest of the facility was taken care of very good. Big pool in the middle and a man made island in walking distance through the water which was the highlight. Paradise feeling and different beaches available inside the resort. A place for everyone to relax and rest. Suoer clean and polite staff and very assisting. Marlon Young is the name of the guy that came to the beach and asked us what to bring us to drink. Never saw that anywhere in the carribean. Great guy and super friendly. Foodwise it had plenty. Buffet all day for breakfast lunch dinner and 3 stations with different snacks plus bars for unlimited drinks. I have to say the food was good and clean. They threw away leftovers after every session. Incredible. I had bad experiences before so i know what to pay attention for. They cooked on order omellet and stuff and they had tons of different desserts and so delicious. Now the restaurants inside the property were 4 to choose. We tried all except the japanese which was with additional charge. The seabreeze was insane. 5 star menu and servers. Crazy if you think about were you are!! The italian and jamaican was nice but nothing could beat the seabreeze. We went there 2 times. That good it was. Gourmet food and desserts. Made on the . There is dress code on the other restaurants which was a bad idea really. The property had gym tennis basketball courts and even laundry. 2 stores for souvenirs and even casino. Entertainment was cool and everyday was different. Very nices touches everywhere. We stayed in an oceanfront room on building one which was super private and quiet. Go for that if you like relaxed vacation. Paradise feeling all over. Really impressed overall. I would stay again if visiting jamaica. Good job people.. little things to improve including the rooms and the building and you are golden.
