My husband and I stayed here and LOVED every min. of it! I like to call this "Real" Jamaica the staff was the best I have ever delt with!! They are wonderful people full of life and energy! Always smiling,singing,dancing and everything in between. The beach was perfect in every way. The water was blue and warm the sand was like baby powder. We never had a problem getting a beach/pool chair EVER. The resort is the perfect size not to big but not to small,from our room to the lobby to breakfast was a 3 min walk..from breakfat to the pool ..well breakfast is served right next to the pool with a great morning view of the beach,from breakfat to the beach was a whole minute if that!! The food was what is expected of an All Inclusive somethings were amazing and some not so much!!
People seem to forget they are in the caribbean its going to be different from the states or any where else! The staff will bendover backwards to please you, the pool bar did get "crazy" at times which was good fun! Im not much of a party person and I enjoyed it, but I did enjoy my naps on the beach just as much! The rooms were just fine! Clean,big and accomadating.No problems there!
I know people will complain about anything, but come on you are in a beautiful part of the world enjoy it for what it is and what it offers,of course people will try to sell you "things" but a kind no thank goes along way.. my husband and I did enjoy when they didtried to sell things(which was really only the first day)! We were there to experience Jamaica and all it had to offer and was just another part of it! Its an adventure into another way of life enjoy it! If you want your bed and the food you are used too,and the life you are used too STAY home!!
Another thing is they are not your servents, and $1.00 goes along way.I saw people get ignored at the bars and crappy service else where. But my drink never went dry, I would be half way through the pool and my drink would be waiting for me with a smile! But I never treated them as my servents or expected them to be, being friendly with them,talking with them,saying hello means the world to them! For a week we spent about $100 on tips.
Jamaica is a wonderful place full of wonderful people! This resort has everything and then some!Love it..My home away from home!! Thank you Riu
