I enjoyed every moment spent at the R Hotel. The Security Guard at the gate was helpful and courteous. The lady who checked me in was so pleasant, it was a smooth check in process. My room was clean and inviting, I was comfortable. Dinner was surf and turf, beef and lobster, both were cooked to perfection. I had a dessert platter, which contained samples of different desserts...tasty. Breakfast was good too. The swimming pool is small and close to the dining area so I was not inclined to swim. Overall great hotel to stay at whenever you are in Kingston.

The R is a nice place to stay in the city. The beautiful ladies at the front desk, Nicolene, Dradya and Monique were very pleasant and took very good care to accommodate us. Ms. Rose was absolutely amazing in setting up a private party on the roof top!!! Which was so much fun for everyone. The food is delicious and is cooked to order so it will take some time, it’s worth the wait- but can still be improved upon. There was one server who was absolutely rude and we informed front desk but besides that one bad apple, staff were very pleasant. The penthouse suite is beautiful and accommodates 4 people so comfortably. We had a mechanical issue with my bedroom door but someone got it fixed it in a jiffy. They have a small gym area but there was an odd occurrence of a group that was seemingly shooting a work out video in the morning when guests are more likely to workout before their daily activities. Our housekeeper, Monique was so pleasant and kept our room spic and span. I would definitely return, but they do have minor things to improve upon for the ultimate guest experience.

We had a beautiful stay to start our honeymoon! Nicolene ensured that the needs of my husband and I were met and we had a smooth checking-in. The room was perfect and it felt like home away from home. It was a long wait to get into District 5 (the restaurant) but when we finally got there the food was awesome! Breakfast was also yummy. I 100% recommend their brunches.
