Rusty a/C outside on the patio 3. Sliding doors were hard to open 4. External ceiling was rotting 3. Tiles crack in the room 6. An extra deposit...

The shower sprayed all over the bathroom. The room on the second floor had very little water in the shower. The AC work great. Furnishings were old...

This hotel is located at the east end of Ocho Rios. When we drove in under the bridge and past the car wash we were a little concerned about the location, but we had no reason to worry during our three days there. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful, and the breakfasts were ample and good, especially when...

It was not very difficult to find. But from the main...

“All the rooms are the same. We stayed in two different rooms on the second floor. Stairs only in case this is a problem, go for a room on bottom floor”

“I was in room 206. I couldn't walk directly onto the beach but had a beautiful view of the sea and bay. As for Wifi, I solved the lack of signal by holding my iphone out over the balcony. This meant i could send and receive emails rather than going down to the breakfast room.”
