Middle of the road resort needs major updates at Quiet Pool
DEBORAH M.
Oct 30 2018
I have been to this resort a few times. The staff is good but there needs to be major updates in the cottages. They need small refrigerators in the rooms. In the evening if you bring a beverage, there are no ice machines and if you get a couple cups of ice from the bar they melt quickly. If they won't but refrigerators in the room, they can at least provide ice machines in the lobby. The quiet pool needs major cleaning. There is scum on the side walls and the tiles grout is black. The water was clean but that was about it. The bar at the quiet pool was staffed now and then. The employees would walk back and forth and socialize with other workers. Granted the pool is not as crowded as the other areas but they are paid to be at the bar and serve the quests. The food was mediocre and items that should be hot were lukewarm or cold. Food choices were limited and not all that great. In the morning I tried to go to the beach to relax and read and the landscaping crews were out constantly raking the sand and socializing with their friends. I had to actually move as they were moving chairs around and I could not enjoy the beach after breakfast. The pools don't open till 10am so you would want to go to the beach and enjoy that area and that was nearly impossible. If they are rearranging chairs for whatever reason it should not take two hours. Also they were tearing up the floor of one of the bars and if you wanted to sit near the bar you heard saws, hammering all day long. I understand they have to update or fix items at the resort but the guests that had cottages on the beach had to listen to that all day as well. You should not have to pay for wifi in this day and age. That should be changed as well. Most resorts have free wifi. They used to have some name brand liquors, that was not the case this time. The liquor offered was nothing I had ever really heard of. They need to change that as well. we all don't want to drink Red Stripe beer the whole time we are there. If you want a modern resort this would not be a good choice.

Don't get me wrong ... we love the resort. We have been there 5 times but this most recent visit we saw a decline in the entertainment and food. The buffet had theme nights but only one or two items would change. The bar help made the vacation a great success.

There is no other place where you can have your own little cottage on the beach for this price. Location was surreal. Food was so good, drinks were great. I am already planning on returning!

cold water shower

It is a 3 star location, that being said, the cottage had a faulty hot water heater that kept tripping the breaker and leaving us with cold water showers. It took the hotel 6 nights before they would move us to another room, seems they thought that we didn't know how to regulate the water temperature. HOWEVER, the rest of the staffing, bar tenders, wait staff, cooks, maintenance guys, were tops, very polite and helpful.

Mediocre Food and Liquor
DEBORAH M.
Nov 27 2017
Food was cool to cold at the buffet. The only hot food you received was when it was served by the chefs at separate carving stations. Liquor at the bar was not any brands I had ever heard of. They used to serve Jack Daniels and Jim Beam but that was nowhere to be found. A lot of construction was going on and I was not told that a snack restaurant had been moved to an upper level location. Another guest told me. The hotel is ok but they need to improve the food and also the liquor selection

Bad experience

Apr 26 2017
Did not get room we requested. Had to wait 2 1/2 hours for room. Room was 1960 style no coffee pot no fridge and they only give you one bottle of water which you have to go refill at the bar. Very noisy and smell of sewer. When it rained which was often you had no cover on your patio. No smoking except designated areas.

We loved our ocean view cottage. The food is amazing and the staff are so sweet. This resort is basic but in the right way, it has all of the stuff you need. Great quiet pool and the beach areas were wonderful. We will be returning next year for sure.

3 Star Rating With 5 Star Service
GREGORY F.
Jan 15 2017
My wife and I loved every aspect of this all inclusive property. The view was 5 star, the service was 5 star and the food and drinks were very good. Maid service was 5 star. This property is beautiful and very well kept. We had a one room suite. It had a separate bedroom which is perfect especially when travelling with kids. This was a very unique experience as 90 percent of the rooms were individual units with air conditioning and many with ocean and garden views. I would highly recommend this property. Again, the rating for this property is 3 star but I would give it 5 star for service.

We have never encountered the high quality of staff anywhere else. You feel more like an extended part of their family and not just another guest. Next trip we become official "Jamericans".

CHRISTMAS IN THE SUN
longie20,
Wed Jan 16 05:24:25 EST 2019
This hotel was in such a lovely setting, we stayed in a garden cottage 102 which was basic but very comfy and clean, plus nice and peaceful at night. The gardens were well maintained with wild life and even cats. The staff were very friendly. The food wasn't great, the hot plates didn't keep the food hot, but there was plenty to go at so we didn't go hungry. The Al a carte restaurant was really nice and we had a lovely Caribbean meal. We were there over Christmas and the hotel put on a gala dinner for all the guests, this was a really great night. We met a lady in the hotel who put us in touch with a local man called Baldwin - he waits outside the main entrance with his mini van, he was a real gentleman and took us to Bob Marley's house and Dunns River Falls, he didn't rush us and made our day special., We went to mystic mountain the following day with Tui and felt like we had been ripped off with this tour, we still had a great day but would advise to book a taxi and do it yourself. All in all we had a fantastic Christmas and a big well done to all the staff who worked so hard and made it a fantastic Christmas. - Thank you!

Nice place

Visited over christmas and new year. The cottage bungalows are lovely. We were put in no. 175, nightclub noise was horrendous! Requested to be moved the next day. Moved to 118, much better. The food was great, jerk chicken and pork especially nice. Tried both restaurants on site, equally good. Nice to be waited on and served wine at your table. All staff work extremely hard and appreciate the occasional tip. Evening entertainment was fine and there's a quiet beach bar away from the entertainment if you prefer. The young entertainment team are a little over enthusiastic but boy can they dance! Took a taxi trip out (80usd) for a few hours into Ocho Rios. Not much to see, but nice to get out for a bit. Taxi driver will stay with you if you want. Great 3* hotel if you're on a budget.

2nd visit - we love this place

From the moment you arrive to when you sadly have to leave you can’t help but smile. The people are among the friendliest We’ve met and the effect is contagious. The conical roofed bungalows are lovely and give you a real sense of escapism. The rooms are spacious and clean but basic. The grounds they are set in are well maintained and attract an array of wildlife including butterflies, humming birds and lizards. Ally is quite picky when it comes to food but there was always plenty for her to choose from in the restaurant. Most nights have some kind of carved meat and of course jerk seasoned meat is always on offer. Coved beaches are sheltered and well looked after and the bars are always to hand. We will definitely return again

This place is paradise, cottages are spotless the cleaners and gardeners do an amazing job. The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food is lovely and plenty to choose from the restaurant staff are brilliant. The bar staff are equally as friendly too. Lifeguards do a fabulous job as well as the beach staff especially Marlon he has a keen eye as we witnessed him save a little girl from drowning. The highlight to our holiday was the animation staff especially Bryan and Kydd 2 amazing guys also Fresh Shay emnem Leah and squid as they all made our holiday perfect. Sorry if I have spelt any names wrong guys. Can't wait to go back definatly 5 stars for us.
