I was told the invercauld was once the best place to stay in St Elizabeth and saw pamphlets of the wonderful grounds. Where do I begin. The reception area was 'nice', a little run down, but being that the property is historical , I forgave the dust and disrepair.
I thought our room would be about the same.
Instead the room reminded me of dorm rooms for 18th century, poor, pregnant , homeless girls. We, unfortunately paid for TWO ROOMS. The first room had horrible, broken old furniture in the sitting room, and a dirty old bed...but most frighteningly, torn, broken window treatments, a non working tv, a closet with no door, the nastiest bathroom with rust and accumulated dirt, dirty floors and extremely worn linens. I felt that they were trying to insult us.
The second room..I can't remember what was wrong because they moved me five times because of either 'room not ready', water doesnt work, lizard in room, lizard droppings, cockroaches everywhere, hot water doesnt work, bed linen too nasty..ac doesnt work. The chair in the first room was wet.
We were promised hot water and never got it. I waited till 2 am , then they said they were sorry because the plumber went home.
The pool was never cleaned and there were no umbrellas, pool chairs or any furnture and flowers as in their brochure. It showed people sitting arond the pool . That must have been a picture from the 70's. ... or a 1 year old photo shoot. NO-ONE would consider swimming in that pool. It looks INFECTED.... dirt and black stuff in it.
I waited for 2 hours for a manager, to complain . She was busy on her personal conversation.RUUUUUUUDE.
The grounds were horrible. I was ill.......You couldnt even walk around the property because it was flooded. You couldnt park because you would step out into a pool of muddy water. And don't try driving as the gravel road has more potholes than you can imagine, and grass is actually growing in the parking lot because the property is not being maintained.
There were more flies in the restaurant than air particles.
They stole US$200.00 from me. I WOULDN'T HAVE STAYED THERE FOR FREE. I let them keep the stupid money for the second day.
We got to breakfast about 45 minutes into it and were told that they ran out. 'Ran Out'. There is no one staying there. Why weren't the rooms cleaned?...there was NO ONE THERE.
I wished I had paid by credit card so I could dispute the charges. I was sooo mad..I don't ever want to get any where near that place again.
You would do better sleeping in your car.......
Send your rats there...... NOT FOR HUMANS
STAYED AT JAMAICA GRANDE, RITZ, WYNDHAM ROSE-HALL , CLUB CARIBBEAN, CLUB JAMAICA, AMONGST OTHERS.
Their maids wouldnt even take a lunch break at the invercauld.
