Awesome time

I went on vacation with some girlfriends and had an amazing time! Everyone from the front desk, to the entertainment staff, to the bartenders were fantastic! The rooms were always clean and neat the housekeeping staff was very nice. The restaurants were always clean and the food was good. Our favorite meal was at the Seagull Steakhouse, but the Kulinarium was great too. We were able to book reservations at those restaurants with no problem at all. We booked an excursion with Scuba Caribe and the excursion was great. There were many people selling excursions and, a word to the wise... the first person that you interact with about booking an excursion should be the person that you actually book with, if you can. We were told that they work on straight commissions. Dwight spent a lot of time with us to show us about a new adventure called Snuba ( a combination of scuba diving and snorkeling) and he ended up being someone that we talked to every day on our trip... Always kind and always smiling! The entertainment staff and the shows we're amazing! From early morning exercise on the beach to shows to celebrate Michael Jackson and Steel Drum show... the entertainment on the resort couldn't have been better. During the shows you've got to check out Charles and Dune at the main bar. Charles makes some pretty neat drinks! It was great to see some of the same people still working at the resort as were there the first time that I went to this resort. You also can't forget to get your jerk chicken on the beach everyday...I wish I had it at home! The bottom line... The beaches are beautiful, the staff are amazing, and it was an amazing girls trip. I can't wait to go back to this beautiful place. More>

Fantastic all round!

We are just back to Ireland after the best two weeks with my two teenage sons and 4yr old daughter. I have no complaints...at all! the flight was easy on the Dreamliner, the hotel was exceptional, service, restaurants, food and beverage choice, free on demand popcorn/fresh fruit/ sandwiches/ burgers all day. The staff at the kids club Bubbles and Smiley were a huge hit and greeted my daughter with open arms, they entertained her with jewellery making, arts and crafts, dvd with dinner on two evenings and as it was all by the kids pool, I could stay sunbathing! The evening entertainers were hilarious, especially the star 'Spotlight'! The rooms are large and kept clean everyday, they are equipped with iron and iron board/hairdryer and large umberella, expect some thundery downpours in the mid afternoon! The pools and beach were paradise! white soft sand and crystal clear warm water, typical of the Caribbean!If you decide to do one trip only, make it a taxi ride to Ricks Cafe, the sunset and high divers are well worth a view. Tips: Bring a strong insect repellent for outdoors in the evenings.You have to pay a leaving tax at the airport on your way home which is 30 us dollars per person cash ( we only found out at the welcome meeting on our arrival). Markets further on down the beech are ok but you can haggle better if you happen to have a few beers with you! The day trips are very expensive but the ATV off road trek is worth it! Some of the other guests 'forgot' what time it was when they were returning back to their room in the evenings as they shouted their way back... any hour of the night was the same as any hour in the day so be prepared to be woken up now and again!You can avail of wifi in your room for 40 dollars for 7 days and it covers 4 devices. Its free in all other areas. We all had a ball and the best two weeks and hope to go back again next year. Highly recommend! More>

Great Time & Central for most trips

We went here for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in June. The room was immaculate with its own bar which gave you 4 cans of Red Stripe every other day, you had a choice of Rum, Gin or Vodka with Orange, cola or Soda water and of course Water, the maid was ok but occasionaly forgot to give us new towels. On one occasion the cleaner forgot to give us Pillow Cases after she removed ours and it took us 2 full days to get a new set. The room also had 2 USB plug points which came in really handy for us. We stayed in room 2160. The Alacarte Restaurants were ok but the Steak house was by far the best with Andrea our compare who was excellent. At the reception bar we had Paul and Claudia who were very very nice, if you were polite and courteous to them they would be the same back to you unlike the top bar where they only ever served the Ladies before us men, my Wife had to get served everytime we went to that bar, it was annoying. We found the shop on site was quite expensive, I did pay $8.00 for a lighter so be aware. The Shops on the Beach were lovely people and I only wish we knew about them at the beginning of or trip as we would not have purchased our gifts from in town because they had the same gifts at the beach, they were not pushy and a no thankyou was enough for them to leave you alone. The biggest downfall we had to our trip was when I tried to organise to purchase some champagne for the day of our anniversary, I was told by the lady at the reception that their was no need for me to purchase as they would organise a day of suprises on our special day, any way the day came and went and we received nothing so the following day I went back to reception to express mine and my wifes dissapointment only to be promised with suprises on that day, again the day came and went and nothing again so I went to see our Holiday rep who promised on our last day that she would organise something, again the day came and went and we received nothing so very very dissapointed with that as I did offer to buy my own and wish I did now. But this is Jamaica, the people are lovely people but are very very laid back, they might ask you 3 times at the bar what you just ordered as they are so laid back they forget lol. All in all we would not go back as we completed most of the trips and basically seen most of what Jamaica has to offer, it is a beautiful country though. More>

Stayed here beginning of June with friends. We had a great holiday. Hotel is lovely ,rooms plenty big enough & beds were so comfortable to sleep in, no complaints whatsoever. Food was good with plenty of choice & variety. Loved the steak house, Deffo book to have a meal in this restaurant during your stay. Entertainment staff were great & worked really hard all day everyday. The main pool with the pool bar can get a bit crazy at times but it always has a great atmosphere. There was plenty of sun loungers round the pools & on the beach. The hotel offers its guests towels to use round the pool or on the beach via a towel card that is issued at check In so you don't have to worry about taking your own beach/pool towels. You could change your towels twice a day. I would definately stay at this hotel again. More>

Excellent!
