Great service, food was surprisingly delicious and plentiful is an understatement. Several of the reservation only restaurants that I went to were very good as well. Easy to get to, lots of excursions. Very helpful and friendly staff. I would stay again. it's a tough one. I probably would've enjoyed more musical variety but i'm kind of grasping at straws to be honest.
I like the staff they were very helpful and nice the place was clean I also in joy the food
Access to drinks in room was very convienientt
First time at an all inclusive and it was great. This resort was so clean and the staff so friendly... The grounds were beautiful... I loved the secret spots you could find while walking around... a hammock here, a giant sized chess board there... hidden jacuzzi's nestled amongst the palm trees... it was a treasure! I would definitely want to go back there again!
couldn't have asked for a better hotel. great food, super friendly staff, and although the hotel was completely booked, it never once felt crowded. The grounds were always quiet and relaxing.
Visited mid-December 2010 and had a great time. The food was plentiful and delicious and the amenities were great. The staff was very helpful, prompt, and courteous. We got a great suite, but knowing there was a better one, we requested a move. They obliged and we were tickled pink happy. My only (minor) beef was that the new room didn't have a complete set of remotes, towels, drinks, etc, so we had to be calling room service to get the basic stuff. But their service was prompt and we didn't let that bother us. Only left the resort for Dunns Falls, which I do not recommend. It was just a tourist trap. We were handed to a couple of 'guides' who basically pushed our group up the falls. But if you do decide to go, do get the rental rubber shoes (they make you get them anyway). Back to the resort, highly recommended. Even the room service food was great (get the gazpacho and the Mediterranean appetizer!). The resort is very green and with lots of places to just hang out, just the two of yo...
It was beautiful, there were lots of activities, the staff was all very friendly. I loved my time there. 1 The buffet food wasn't that great. We made reservations for the nicer restaurants every night. 2 The liquor was watered down. We didn't expect the drinks to be low quality to make up for the fact that it's all inclusive.
The vibe at this place is just lovely. We had never been to an all inclusive before (we like to experience the culture of a place and not just stay on a gated off property), but we booked because it was close to downtown ocho rios and a great price for including the round-trip montego bay airport transfer and free drinks/food/activities. We ended up loving the layout and vibe of this place. It's a luxury resort but it's kind of fraying at the edges, in a charming kind of way - apparently one of the first resorts built on the island. Everything is extremely clean and well designed. We loved the beautiful trees and plantings overgrowing the beach and pools. The naked island is also beautifully landscaped, with a luxurious isolated feel. We often felt like we were in one of those vacation posters from the 60s. The naked island. We were nervous about this but decided we had to do it before we left. It was actually really awesome and there was no reason to be nervous. The vibe was much more social out there, probably because being naked breaks down a lot of barriers you might normally feel with strangers. One woman commented that "this place is the opposite of sexy, it's more like becoming a baby again" and that was true. Teneil was running trivia at the pool bar out there and she was hilarious, and the bartender Abigail out there was great too. There's a full bar on the island and there's food out there around lunch too. You take a ferry out, find your beach chair, and then undress. You may not be out there with clothes on, except staff. Our cab driver Nash was the absolute man. He took us to the blue hole and then we booked him again to take us to the farmers market in ocho rios. He then took us to his favorite bar where we played dominoes with the locals - the most fun we had on the trip. Finally he brought us to a local Jamaican restaurant where much food was eaten. Book him, he's the man. The blue hole was incredible. Don't leave ocho rios without going there - natural waterfalls and turquoise pools with cliff jumping and rope swings. Our guide was Dave, who was also the man. The guides carry your cameras/iPhones over their heads as they swim across the pools and they never get wet. We loved the activity lady chevalle as well, who we tried to convince to walk with us to Ocho Rios which she thought was a fully hilarious request. Good people. Be aware that if you want to do scuba, the beginners class is at 8:30 AM and you may not scuba the day before your departure. The food was better than we expected for an all inclusive, but I was sick of it after 3 days. The Asian restaurant has a cool location out over the water, but the food was really bad except the thom kla soup (you're in Jamaica, why are you ordering Asian food anyway. This is an every-Asian-cuisine-on-one-menu place, which was the first sign).The drinks are free flowing and pretty yummy, but definitely watered down (even the gin ordered to our room was clearly half the alcohol of regular gin - I've made a gin and tonic many times and never put 3 shots in it). However, if these drinks were full alcohol, the resort would have a problem with guests being way too drunk so I understand why they do it. We also found more name-brand stuff that seemed to not be watered down on the naked island. The snorkeling trip was sad because the reefs around Jamaica are pretty much dead, and the "couples reef" is no exception. You'll see some little fish and a squid if you're lucky, but the coral is largely dried up. However, it's nice so swim out in the ocean and the trip is only an hour so why not. Cabs are very expensive, because the drivers stay with you wherever you go. My last criticism is that there's definitely a "hush hush" rule among employees that they are not allowed to tell you about fun local things to do (truly local).
