My husband and I could be called an elderly couple. We were visiting Jamaica for the fist time, and we had a fine holiday. The resort is indeed very big, but with the Don Pablo Collection upgrade, we had the best of everything.
Our balcony had a lot of shade. The ocean view was interesting: there weren't too many large boats sailing by but we could watch local fishermen in the mornings.
All the staff was friendly: Carmen our day maid, Candy, the night maid. Kim, the hostess at the Palmyra Restaurant, made us feel at home; in fact, everyone went out of his or her way to be pleasant, but the pace was a bit slower at the Palmyra, and we liked that. . The food was great; the presentation was amazing. So much work went into carving melons etc.!!
All the restaurants were fine. We like sushi and went to the Mikado more than once.
The beach was nice too, but we prefered the pool: it was closer, friendlier.
Time share sales people were about all the time; we just said "no thank you", and went on our way, no problem.
