    Will continue to stay here while in Jamaica

    This is the second time I have stayed after a large gap, even with that it is still just as friendly and relaxing as I remembered. There are plenty of food choices, plenty of drinks choices and a lot of activities included in the resort. There are spa treatments and a laundry service at an additional cost. The cottage I stayed in had a double bedroom, twin beds on the floor above and a large couch in the living area that was used for a bed by us. We had a fridge in the room, I overheard a few rooms dis not have this but were given one after speaking to reception. The room was serviced daily and any extras required (towels, toilet paper, etc) were given. There is a laundry service available, but I will say I felt it was very pricy. I believe hotels like this would benefit from having their own laundry section where guests can pay to use the machines/dryers. There are 2 pools, one by the main entertainment area (chlorinated) and one quiet pool (salt water). Both pools have bars available. The Jasmine restaurant at lunch and after 11 have burgers, hot dogs, wings, etc which was a nice change from the buffet. The entertainment was good and the bar staff were an amazing part of our holiday. They are more than happy to provide you with any drink you ask within their stock (we had fussy drinkers lol). They could not do enough for you. The night club was good, it was quiet some nights but it was still great. Can't wait to go back.

    AMAZING!!!!!. White sand beach, private and authentic. A place to go back to.

    To us, Runaway Bay Hotel will always be 5 stars. Although it's a 3 star hotel. Beautiful beach bays, with plenty of beach chairs available. We always find somewhere quiet on the beach ⛱️. It's spacious and private. We were there during Hurricane Beryl 🌀 and the staff worked very hard. They prepared and delivered food to our room. It was risky. The majority of staff were very kind and professional, Odatte at the bar was amazing 👏. Don't let poor reviews stop you from going. The good points outways the bad, and managed is changing. Accommodation is in a beautiful garden setting, overlooking the beach. It's easy to find something to eat at the buffet, and there are plenty of fresh fruits. Have an open mind when you go to Runaway Bay. If you want authentic Jamaican food next to the beach ⛱️, this is the place to go. We highly recommend it, and we'll definitely return.

    Worst hotel experience

    The rooms are very untidy with rats and lizard mess on bed and pillow. Also bed bugs and ants crawling all over the mattress. Holes in my roof i see night sky and sun shining through during the day. My skin is full of bumps from those bed bugs bites.. front desk at nights have no manners or customer service.. was a disgrace. I had to sleep in the lobby. Sorry i can't upload the videos

    Great people and good, bad facilities

    In general, they have an amazing staff of young talented folks who stand ready to help. Great entertainment and excellent food throughout the day. The facilities were a real downer. Lots of broken things. Needs a major upgrade! Had a damned crab in our room the first night! WTF!!!
