“Avoid at all costs”
After travelling throughout the Caribbean, including Jamaica many times since 1990, this hotel had the WORST food we've ever experienced. Quality, quantity, variety, availability - ONE STAR although we had 3 star expectations. Chicken 2 X/day EVERY day. Often standard ingredients unavailable including yogart, lettuce, salad dressing, mayo, ran out of BEER, RUM, other liquors.We left resort for food - fruit, yogart, cheese. Hotel was ready for a complete makeover - outdated, in disrepair - leaking toilet, missing towel racks and we had the honeymoon upgraded room; room coffee not always available. internet not always available in lobby/bar (NA in room). Gift shop Extremely overpriced.
The strong points WEATHER, many staff pleasant but lack pride and professionalism created by hotel environment, staff management and structure not apparent. The weak points FOOD:quality, quantity, availability, variety - CHICKEN lunch/dinner EVERY DAY, house band same act most nights,tours expensive, gift shop way over priced

It needs to be updated. Very old and worn down. Nothing in the gym worked. Only 1 restaurant. Food was good but limited.
The strong points Weather was nice. Some of the staff were nice. The weak points Limited supply of drinks, entertainment and services.

“We will return”
Our group of 3 couples had a great week here. Staff are amazing, friendly, accommodating, they really do take time to know your name. Our sun wing rep, Tresan- she is one of the best destination reps I have met. However, there was the shopping and Dunn's Falls tour that we booked and we were told that we would get to go to a number of stores shopping. We were allowed to shop in one. Our tour guide Dianne was also very nice, but she said we were only allowed to go to the one store. I didn't like that. The food was good, not a huge selection but it was always good, clean Buffett area, and if they run out of something they would refill right away. It is a very quit and relaxing resort. It could use some touch ups and TLC as it is looking a bit old. If you are looking for a party spot, this is not it! It is very laid back- we got a good deal on it. I wouldn't pay anymore then we did. But if it is on a good sale price- by all means I would go back. Travel date was feb/2013 Oh- there is beach but not one that you can take long walks on. There is three different beach areas. Small but we never had any trouble getting chairs on the beach or by the pool, ant time of the day.
The strong points Staff were awesome! Food was good. All areas were clean- even public washrooms. The weak points You can't take long walks on the beach.
Jenn Millar Kingston, NS from 2013-02-25 to 2013-03-04 (7 days)
Great hotel for the price-definitely not a 5 star, but we knew what we were getting into. Tiny, almost non-existent beaches and no water to swim in (small coves with water no more than 3 feet deep), really good food at the buffet (but just a very small selection - almost no variety), hotel rooms and most definitely bathrooms need a remodel (but they are big and kept clean)...but the staff and entertainment crew make up for what the hotel lacks in amenities. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to give us what we wanted - very personal service with a smile! Manager was always visible...walking around, smiling and saying hello...cleaning up, restocking and checking to make sure everything was okay. Overall a good experience. We would consider going back if the price was right. Resort was so small but it felt like it was half-empty at all times, so it wasn't ever crowded, which was a bonus.
The strong points Staff and entertainment crew...bartenders were awesome! The weak points Tiny beaches, no swimming, lack of food selection and snacks.

“Love the Ambiance”
Had an amazing time and would be glad to go back anytime. Being on the smaller side made it feel very welcoming where the staff became like your family for a week.
The strong points Food and People were awesome. A great value. Would go back anytime. The weak points Could use a paint job from top to bottom but was all clean none the less

“Good short stay place”
Staff was helpful and friendly. The food was average. Not much selection, slow time of the year could be why. Not much to do. Good place if you're looking to relax by the pool or use as a home base while you went on tours. Rooms were clean. A lot of noise from the road at night. eg trucks with engines brakes going by. rated as a 3 and that's what it is.
The strong points Staff were very helpful and friendly The weak points Tired resort could use a good overhaul.
Perry Kitchener, ON from 2012-11-27 to 2012-12-02 (5 days)
