    Fun trip!

    Best part of the trip is the amazing staff. Everyone is SO friendly and welcoming, and are always trying their best to entertain everyone at the resort. They're also all great with children! Bruno and Tawshana, and all other entertainers, always keeping the pool area very exciting and entertaining and getting everyone involved and having a great time! They even took music recommendations from everyone and were willing to learn their dance moves! Also night-time entertainment was amazing, especially Michael Jackson night. Berry and Roman, and all the other bartenders, are always having a great time...making it impossible to not smile just watching them. Whether it's balancing everything on their heads, breaking into dance-offs, or jumping into the pool, the staff made everyone else have a great time. And of course all their pool-side drinks were delicious. Rowhan, and all the other restaurant servers, always quick and never forget any of your orders and always making breakfast, lunch, dinner experiences perfect, also great food. The biggest drawback of the resort are the rooms. Relatively small and simple, but the biggest issue is the lack of view in the majority of the rooms. Should also mention that going in January, weather was a bit windy (although it was very warm) which made the beach not ideal to be in.

    Do not go here. The service is awful! They do not listen to any of your requests. Our reservations at restaurants were screwed up most nights. We had butler service but they were mostly non existent. For a resort it was one of the worst we have visited in the Caribbean

    One of the worst customer service ever dealt with. Hotel had. I welcome drinks or staff waiting those who just arrived. We encountered several booking issues with room accommodations for a group of 15 people who booked months in advance. We were shafted at the end of the hotel viewing the parking lot and was told its fully booked theres no accommodations. We were not compensated in any way for the inconvenience. Food was okay, bland in flavors, Jerk chicken has no spices or flavour, and low vierty desserts. Overall we had a bad experience with front desk and accommodations not matching our booking requests. I would NOT RECOMMEND this hotel to anyone.

    A Fabulous Time Was Had by All!!!

    As I write this, I am sitting in a bali bed on the diamond club beach. Sadly, my trip is coming to an end tomorrow, but Jamaica owes me nothing!!! My friends and I had amazing service at the Diamond Club beach with Javaughnie. He took such good care of us and was super friendly and attentive each day...even when it was super busy. Our Butlers, Michael Lee and Julio were wonderful as well. They checked in with us each day and went above and beyond to meet our requests. We also enjoyed a Cabana for one day where Peter, Wayne, and Akean provided great service. Although I read mixed reviews before arriving, I didn't experience any of the negative things that were said. Check in was smooth and easy. The room was small but, nicely furnished and decorated. The maids did a nice job of keeping the room clean each day. We ate at Jade, Zen, Hunter, and the Italian restaurant. Each one was delicious with Zen being my fave. Room service was delicious is well, but it can be a bit slow to arrive. All in all, everything was amazing. If your code to stay here, you are guaranteed an amazing vacay! Already planning my return trip.
