This place was cool...good location, nice staff, and a tasty free breakfast. My only complaints are about our broken door lock and shower head. Everything else was pretty good. They have a nicely stocked bar and it's right across from the beach. There's also a pretty park about half a mile down the road and a long strip of cheap...

The hotel itself is nice enough. Not 5 stars by any means but as a good, convenient location for the strip it's fine. Rooms are clean but we had to switch from our first room because the lights didn't work 😊 Otherwise we were happy enough. We didn't spend so long in the rooms due to the location! There are...

Friendly staff, who gave good tips on things like local attractions and directions. Great service, easy access to shops and entertainment. Great time hanging out on balcony looking out at ocean across the street.

You really get what you pay for at this hotel. The AC was not fully functional in the room, the breakfast is not buffet style and you get one plate of food and the menu is the same every day. You won't get an extra drop of juice for your free breakfast. Don't expect any cereal or bagels or anything...

We apologise for the inconvenience we caused you. As you might understand however, air conditioning units, being electro-mechanical, can malfunction and/or fail at any time. we consider that the judgement of our service delivery is how quickly we remedy the situation after it's reported to us. We have been changing all our units to brand new "inverter" units for better...

Thanks for choosing to come back. Thanks for staying the course. We do have one suite in the hotel. For clarification, the distinguishing features of our rooms have to do with room size. I suspect that the employee was new and not properly trained ....we apologise. We look forward to your next visit.

Good morning, We apologize for the inconvenience we caused you to experience while staying with us.

We moved around Jamaica with 5 main stops/hotels and this was our last stop to be close to MBJ airport. Usually use Toby's Resort (also good) but this pool is bigger (though yes they could keep on it more to clear pool of leaves and maintain with cleansing during night so guests can use when they get up).
