Warnings!!! Before you choose this hotel...
Posted May 2, 2016 on Hotels
THE BAD: beds are very hard, pillows are for children, you may not get room service unless you ask for it, no wine in the rooms nor will they bring it unless you pay $20 extra per bottle. On the beach you get accosted by people bugging you endlessly to sell you stuff, and some were not very nice after being rejected. Resort is NOT on 7-mile beach, it is on Bloody Bay Beach. 7-Mile beach CANNOT be accessed other than to walk down the road about a mile, where you will constantly be honked at by people wanting to give you a ride for a fee -- and they won't take "NO" for an answer. They also don't tell you that the tap water is not safe for consumption. The staff seemed to be miffed when they don't get a tip.
THE GOOD: The ocean was heavenly and the food was pretty good. The entertainment was ok, but most consisted of one Jamaica Reggae band after another.
THE WARNINGS: Do not rent a car, it is a waste and too dangerous. Do not try to walk to Negril or Rick's Cafe from this resort. Though we walk 4 miles every day at home, this trek was too far and we definitely felt threatened by sellers, including one guy who followed us, swearing at us for not buying anything from him.
