3.7 Poor
Pros:The food was great
Cons:House keeping was terrible. My baby got a rash from dirty sheets.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:It's very beautiful.
Cons:The food. I think the food is a product of the fact that they have to make it in such mass quantities because everyone eats so much and expects to be able to eat at every second of the day. I feel like a complete jerk being at a resort where the large majority of patrons are white and the large majority of workers are black. On top of that, almost no one tips for anything. The group I was with tipped for drinks and food but you rarely see that. It really makes you feel like all of the guests at the resort are a bunch of entitled, self-important jerks who don't think about the staff at the resort at all.
6.0 Okay
Pros:I like the staff they were very helpful and nice the place was clean I also in joy the food
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Access to drinks in room was very convienientt
4.2 Mediocre
Pros:Beautiful property; great entertainment, good food, even better liquor... that's it!
Cons:If your room is in block 3, eg: room # 3xxx,... RUN!!! (unless you thoroughly enjoy the smell of sewage). Once you traverse past the main dining hall & approach the elevator for block 3, a noxious odour of sewage hits you! And it doesn't leave you... it permeates through the corridors and remains noticeably present even when you're isolated in your room. We arrived on Friday evening to a room which was cleaned before 3pm the same day, but which still wreaked of that god-forsaken sewage odour. It was so bad that we checked out on Saturday afternoon, instead of Sunday as scheduled (without being refunded). Your only hope for escape, aside from checking out, is to confine yourself to the many other beautiful areas of this property... the beach, pool, nightclub, dining areas. Just stay as far away from block 3 as possible and dare not venture into your magnificently appointed room! What about sleeping soundly in a comfortable bed to the sounds of breaking waves you may ask... overrated! (unless your vision included the porous smell of sewage constantly tickling at your nose & churning your stomach.) Did we complain you may ask? Yes we did, but was still left to suffer in sewage city (aka Block 3)! I guess I can understand it being difficult to relocate guests when your hotel is close to capacity & an entire block of rooms is under siege! Aside from that little nagging smell :( the property is beautiful & the entertainment is great, despite the service being less than stellar
7.3 Good
Pros:The stay was great! 2nd trip...much nicer than the 1st time will definitely go back...food was ok , good mixture of culture. The ackee and salt fish was superb - tasted home cooked.
Cons:I was annoyed that the entertainer performed the Jamaica's National anthem with their hands behind their back - they should know better, they are Jamaican and should show the world the correct thing. As a Jamaican Teacher I was seriously annoyed.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great service, food was surprisingly delicious and plentiful is an understatement. Several of the reservation only restaurants that I went to were very good as well. Easy to get to, lots of excursions. Very helpful and friendly staff. I would stay again.
Cons:it's a tough one. I probably would've enjoyed more musical variety but i'm kind of grasping at straws to be honest.
