We had a great time but ...

This was our third trip to this hotel. We absolutely adore Jamaica & have loved our time spent in Negril! The hotel is fantastic & the staff are amazing. They're all so happy & friendly and they can't do enough for you. The vibe in Jamaica itself is so chilled & relaxed and you can't help but adopt their "no problem" outlook on life. The food was lovely - plenty of choice & it was delicious! The new Asian restaurant was particularly good. We went there a few times. Really really good! The only negative point we had was that there is no longer a club at the hotel. The previous years we have been here, we would end most nights in the club. The music was good & that would be where the wedding parties would end up. We'd always have a great time. This year, there was a DJ outside on the stage. I think we saw people dancing once or twice during our three week stay. The guests at the hotel were mainly families or older couples and this changed the atmosphere. Once the entertainment had finished, the bar area was empty by 11pm apart from myself, my friend and 1 or 2 other groups. The 24hr sports bar hardly ever had anybody in after midnight ... A bit pointless really! We understand that Negril is a party spot but in order to go out of the hotel to the parties most nights, it would cost us around £600 extra each which then makes a three week stay a very expensive holiday. I would really recommend this hotel to families & couples aged 35+ but if you're a group of friends like us, then I'd say to find somewhere a little livelier. Jamaica, however, is still my favourite place on earth & we have got a holiday to another area booked for April 2017. More>

Amazing Trip!

We went with a group of 10 people and everyone had a great time. The beach is close to everything which is really nice. Our rooms were lovely and we didn't have any complaints. We were on the top floor so if you have any issues with mobility be sure to ask for a lower room. We were the second building over from the lobby and there was a nice private pool over there which we really liked. The washroom was located in the same spot and the chairs were covered by a canopy (if you wanted). It was also super close to the beach bar. Tip-bring your own cup or bubba to use at the beach bars and the washing of the cups is not good down there. The beach was so calm I couldn't believe it. We brought our own blow up floats that we used in the Ocean...Amazing!!! The food here was excellent and we enjoyed every meal. The jerk on the beach is a great lunch option. We rented a boat for our group and we did snorkeling, went to Rick's cafe (which was amazing and better priced than what people were saying.) We also stopped at Margaritaville but didn't like it as much because the people on the beach were too aggressive. As for the people on the beach at the resort, they will call you over all the time but once you speak with them and tell them you aren't interested they leave you alone. They are not allowed to enter the resort and they stay at the water line. I had no issues with any of them. The lobby had music during the evenings and we would enjoy sitting there. The kids went to day camp and seemed to really enjoy it, they also participated every night on the big stage. The coffee at the sports bar was really good. Overall we had a great vacation, resort was lovely, food excellent, beach and ocean so calm. We did see string rays at the beach but they swim away from you, just be careful. You could use some bug spray as there are sand fleas or something really small that do bite. I didn't really have bites while there but when I got home I did break out in small itchy bumps (a few of us did) it took a couple weeks but they went away and I just used aloe lotion on them. That is the only negative thing that I can even think of. We would certainly recommend this resort and we would go back as well. More>

AMAZING!!

Absolutely brilliant hotel to stay in! Loved every minute of it! Spotlight has got to be the best entertainer of the place! The room was amazing, the food was amazing, the hotel is amazing!

This is our 3rd time to this resort within 13 months, I know sounds crazy but this place is great! I love the fact that you can walk to the side of the resort on the beach and little markets are set up to buy things, yes they crave business and will try to pull you into their shops but they are harmless and you will get good deals! If your not interested wave & keep walking, loved swimming with the stingrays, a baby one hangs around the shoreline, harmless, it like to watch human interaction, 3 pools on the resort, excellent food, live entertainment, cheaper to book excursions with market people on the beach, you will come upon Andre (handicapped man with crutches) and his 8 yr old daughter Jamilla, she helps her dad sell things, he doesn't have much but well worth it to buy off this single father, he's the 2nd last guy selling at the end, make sure to tell him & Jamilla Stacy says HI! and I will be back soon! Bring down lots of give outs, my lugguage was pretty empty coming home, I gave to Andre & Jamilla daily, & other vendors on the beach, they appreciate anything! More>
