The hotel offered great relaxation areas. A la carte booking was a bit of a pain. Concierge opened at 7:30 with line up starting at around seven. Restaurant openings were limited to a staggered schedule. Didn't get to experience the Tex Mex due to the timing and lineup. It would be better to assign all those on AI a scheduled...

We were a group of six and stayed at JBR for the England cricket matches. Overall the place is good fun. The fixtures and fittings are tired and need some maintenance but the location, if you are into beaches, is fabulous. Although tired, I found the hotel to be clean and the staff very friendly. The food was good but...

When it comes to the hotel itself, it is not so perfect but comfortable enough to make the vacation really nice. Wi-Fi is available only in the very small...

This was one of the best vacations I've ever had. The beaches, white sands, the ocean crystal clear, just heavenly. The resort was excellent, plenty of activities, and the food, wonderful! Easily the best I've had at an all inclusive resort. We stuck with the buffet each night because it was just that good. Each night featured a different cultures...

Situated on a beautiful mile long, shell strewn, white sand beach. Our Junior suite was the most spacious we've ever had and was very well equipped, only in-room Wi-Fi was not available.
