Great Location!

This hotel is right in the heart of Ocho Rios. Close to shops, restaurants, etc. Rooms could be a little nicer but for the price it's well worth it, besides who stays in their room while on vacation and the beach is in your backyard! Also the food was much better this year as opposed to last year. Quite Content

Perfect for what we needed!

Myself and 5 other coworkers just got back from staying at this hotel. I have stayed here before so I know that it's not a 5 star hotel. However, the staff is awesome, the food is great and the proximity to The beach and city is excellent. We did have an issue with our room but the guest relations manager went out of our way to make it up to us with a better room and other special treats. We would definitely return!!!

Great Deal

This vacation has something for everyone. Live music on two stages: DJ on one and a band on the other, and there is also a Night Club with another DJ. They also have an assortment of activities throughout the day so you can find something to do if sunbathing at one of their pools, or the beach is not your thing. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included, but if you want an elevated dinner experience over the buffet style dining, then make reservations at one of their 4 restaurants, which all have unique views of the sundown, and plan for that if you want a more romantic dining experience. The amenities include non motorized sports so check them out if you want to kill some time. Best place to get souvenirs is in town, just minutes away from the resort, but be prepared to be approached by "helpful guides" that would offer to taxi you around the island, or give you a tour of the market, where they will try to sell you anything*, or some nice souvenirs. As far as that goes, i didn't haggle and I was not too interested at first, but they dropped their price a few times, and without the haggling, you will save over half over the mainstream shops, so buy your souvenirs from the street vendors if you want to experience that. Bring sunblock as the sun is HOT there. I brought SPF 50 and I still got burned in some spots. Lastly, plan your excursions depending on what your interests are and the Dunn's River Falls was my favorite, but go with a large group as they will try to sell you a $40 movie/recording of the adventure which is filmed by your guide so this way you only have to buy 1 copy for the group and then share it, which will be a nice souvenir from the vacation. This is an all inclusive experience so enjoy it...

Good family getaway for the price

This was my first trip out of the states. For the price of our booking it was a great experience. It wasn't anything 5 star, but I also didn't have to pay a 5 star price.

Nice family getaway

This is a very large hotel, but the staff was very friendly and we never had to wait too long (for breakfast, lunch dinner). The hotel is right on the beach, which was very beautiful. There was also a lot of pool area and a lot of afternoon activities for everyone around the pool.

Winter Getaway Anniversary

We had a very good experience. However, we did have to change rooms due to the loud entertainment right below our first room in the North tower. We were moved to an excellent room in the South tower. Customer Service was friendly and helpful .... everything from tours to the room change. We visited Dunn's River Falls and Mystic Mountain. Both were excellent. One of the reasons we picked the hotel was the ability to walk into Ocho Rios. However, walking into the City meant dealing with folks trying to get our attention and money. We generally kept moving and did okay.
