If you are expecting a 5 star resort then you are going to be disappointed. Having said that, if you are going to Negril, Jamaica on the 7 mile beach to sit in your hotel room then you shouldn't have gone in the first place. My husband and I had no problems at all with any of the rooms, staff or food. We stayed for one week from Jan 6 - 13th. Check in went smoothly and had no concerns in that department. There are no bed bugs there either!!! Shame on you other people that posted that there was. We talked to many other couples that were there and they never voiced any concerns about bed bugs. The rooms were clean and very basic. We had clean towels every day. There are no towels to be had to take to the beach and we had to buy some but that was a small price to pay. We always had hot water for showers and the toilet and sink worked just fine. The staff was very nice and would help you out with whatever questions that you had whether it be about outside trips or restaurants or shopping. The buffet is basic but we could always find something to eat and never had a problem with that. We ate every meal at the resort except for one lunch that we ate out on our afternoon trip to Mayfield Falls. They do serve a lot of chicken (cooked different ways) and cabbage. There is no 24 hour buffet here either. The buffet starts at a set time and if you want to eat make sure to show up. The all inclusive bar is pretty basic but if it ran out of something there was always another liquor to select.
We have stayed at other huge resorts in different parts of the world and had to stand in line forever at the buffet and had to walk for what seemed like forever to get to the beach from our room. The beach for this resort is unbelievable! Two steps down from the restaurant is the beach....how can you beat that? The sand is beautiful and the water is crystal clear.
The people of Jamaica are kind and very proud. There are lots of people on the beach trying to sell everything from fruit in the morning to cigarettes, day excurtions, boat trips, snorkling, horseback riding, carvings, shells, necklaces, bracelets, and of course "smoke". A kind "no thank you" is a good response if you are not interested in any of the above. It is not like Mexico when they are on you and will not take no for an answer. My husband and I did take a day excursion to Mayfield Falls with Mr. Peter Hillman and a glass bottom boat ride to Rick's Place to watch the cliff divers with Captain Moses. I would highly recommend both of these while you are there. There is a little shopping mall called TimeSquare within walking distance that has all the usual tourist items to purchase with an automated teller there to get some Jamaica or US cash. Most things are priced in US dollars on the beach.
We got to meet a lot of different people at this resort which is unlike any other. Most other resorts you see people once and then not again until you get on the bus to go to the airport. It was great to get to know people and fun to have the Jamaica experience with other Canadians. The type of people ranged from couples (like us), mother and daughter, families and single people.
All in all, I would have to say that for the price of this resort my husband and I would go back. This is a resort that you experience the people of Jamaica and all that they have to offer.
