I regret not having read previous reviews regarding this hotel. As was noted by others, the initial look of the hotel is average however closer inspection does reveal a somewhat dingy atmosphere. There is a pond on the inside of the hotel that clearly needed attendance and looked as though it had potential if cleaned or attended to somehow. My...

The Grand Port Royal Hotel is located near to the Kingston Norman Manley Airport and is good for lay overs or to be nearby to the Airport for very early morning flights! The lobby area is very dowdy looking with dingy rooms & bar area! We were shown some out of the way rooms in a lonely part of the...

This was my 2nd time staying in Port Royal. I normally go to Negril but I have found tranquility here in Kingston without having to drive all the way to Negril. The staff is always a pleasure to be around. Which included Tiffany, Stephanie, Sophie, Annabel, Duval, Tash and Merl. He entire staff was friendly and welcoming. I would highly...

The Grand Port Royal Hotel was a quaint and cozy little spot not far from the airport, it was easy to get to and in a beautiful picturesque setting right on the water, just outside the busy city of Kingston close to businesses government agencies and attractions. The place itself was a little run down and in desperate need of...

I had a very rewarding and satisfying experience. The location is very serene and relaxing; a beautiful laid back seaside view. It is perfect for the for the person who wants to get away for a quiet relaxation. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. One such staff member stood out above the other great staff members; she works in...

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived after reading all of the negative reviews. I didn't mind at all that the hotel was far from Kingston because I wanted to be by the ocean and we used the local bus system which made it cheap getting back-and-forth to the hotel. The hotel has an older style charm, my room was...

I usually do no write reviews but this was by far, the worst hotel I have stayed in. I would not recommend this Hotel to anyone. The photos and amenities are not what is offered to you when you arrive. I booked this trip over a month in advance so I expected to have something I was happy with. When...
