Very Pleased with our stay Mar 02, 2017
I usually shy away from all-inclusive deals but this hotel was recommended to me by a friend. I am happy we chose it.

The hotel is close to the airport so we did not spend much time getting there. I regret taking the shuttle as a taxi would have been cheaper and we'd have been there even sooner.

We were promptly checked in with no hassle. The facility is well maintained and clean. Service was prompt and efficient. The staff friendly and helpful.

It is well located for day trips and excursions.

The Nightly entertainment was better than expected.

The buffet was better than expected and the al a carte restaurants were very good.


The proximity to the airport made for some noise during the day. We did not hear any noise when we were inside.

The resort credit we were promised is just a stack of discount coupons. #5 off a massage, $100 off the wedding picture package.

Very Pretty, Clean, Friendly Hotel Feb 16, 2011
From the moment we checked in we were greeted by friendly hotel staff, offering us rum punch. This place is built for vacation. The grounds are very clean, the buildings are well-kept and painted in a soft purple. It's spacious, yet not huge. The beach is clean and walkable. We felt safe the whole time. The entertainment crew is the most hard-working, fun group I've seen at a resort. Lots of talent.

The food is not great, but not bad. If you're willing to try things you'll find something. Picky eaters are never happy anyhow.

I had read negative reviews about the planes flying overhead. The hotel is basically 5 mts from the airport in Montego Bay. There are quite a few that fly overhead daily. We could barely hear them while inside, and they did not bother us when we were outside. Quite the opposite, it was cool to see them fly overhead.

My only complaint was that the bed was harder than I like, and the pillows weren't that comfortable. Our standard room was lovely and comfortable, otherwise. The bathroom had two sinks, which is a nice treat when a girl is traveling with a guy. The tub was spacious and has a shampoo/conditioner dispenser on the wall. There was plenty of hot water and good shower pressure. My one bathroom complaint: no fan.

We were on the all-inclusive plan, so our room had a well-stocked mini fridge: six Red stripes, tonic water, Coke, Diet Coke, big bottle of water, and two small bottles. Oh, and liquor dispenser with two rums, one gin, and one brandy. The mini fridge is restocked every other day, though it seemed like they stocked ours daily.

The entertainment staff is hard-working, and puts on fun shows nightly. You can find them rehearsing during the day. Play Bingo, you'll have fun and win prizes.

There is a free shuttle to the shopping center across the street, where they give tourists good discounts. Bring singles for tips, as tipping is expected of tourists in Jamaica.

The two of us had a lovely five days, and I would return to this hotel.

Nice All-Inclusive on the Beach May 17, 2010
The resort is beautiful. Most of all, the people are so friendly and attentive! The bar service was excellent, which some all-inclusives are not so excellent bar service. In other words, you do not have to tip these guys to give you drinks! The pool is excellent too. There is a nice swim up bar and lots of tables in the water to hang out. The food is OK, nothing great, nothing bad. I was curious about the water when I went and wasn't sure if it was drinkable; however, I drank it the whole time at the resort and did not have any problems.

My only complaint is the beach is beautiful, but it had grass at the bottom that was slimey. The beaches at the resorts (any of them not just RIU) are "man made" so they are not great (however they look great!). I like snorkeling right off the beach, but there is no reason to here. Not pretty underwater. Oh and, there are no waves at all, which I didn't mind.

We took a zipline tour and snorkeling tour....both were completely worth it!
