good location , bad rooms, toilets never work, terrible breakfast , no swimming pool and spa even if they are supposed to be. shuttle service just twice a day independent of your flight so maybe you have to leave 3 or 4 hours before and wait at the airport

I took my group of visitors for dinner at Lal Hotel. I loved the Jamaican Chicken Stew. Clients said they also liked it.It is the chef's specialty. The rooms (Tukuls) are professionally customised. I recommend it

My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the food was good. Stayed two nights here and enjoyed it very much. Hot water for showers works best early in the day. Secure compound made me feel safe. Would love to stay here again.

With great expectation, I visited this hotel. The room was tiny and clear to stay for my family. But the staff did not look having responsibility for guests. He has changed his promise to us about the time for the shuttle bus to the airport . We did not have any choice but to leave the hotel without any preparation...
