The resort has 76 suites of different size. It is a nice, but in need of refreschment all-inclusive property. I think, we were the only europeans in the resort. The guests are almost exclusively people with small children. The best of the resort is the nanny service ;every room has its own nanny assigned, the needs of 9:00-16,40 around the children care.

  • Service

    All of the staff are exceptionally friendly. Any foreign languages none, needs but also none, since the guests all from the USA and Canada come. The service is as everywhere on Jamaica in all areas a little slow, but reliable. No matter wether at the bar, in the restaurant, in the kids club or at the front desk.

  • Gastronomie

    There are 3 restaurants, one is jamaican, an italian, a somehow everything. Furthermore, there was a grill, the was open and in the evening a kids buffet. The quality of the dishes is ok. The breakfast buffet could be a bit more appealing be arranged, but everything including egg station and smoothjebar is available.

  • Zimmer

    The rooms are beautiful large, well air-conditioned and functional decorated. The mini bar to be filled with everything you want, also snacks of different kinds to choose from. Our bathroom was very antiquated and should be renewed once.

  • Lage und Umgebung

    It is located on a small beach, the for small children optimal is. Right next to the resort is a very extensive beach, whom one can also use. The airport is about an hour away. All kinds of excursions are through the hotel bookable. Eating out, we were only once. In sharkies. The lobater was delicious there.

  • Sport und Unterhaltung

    Offered amongst others shopping trips to Ocho Rios and the waterfalls. Entertainment for children there is officially from 7.30 in the morning, but de facto starting the program at the earliest from 9:00 a. m.. Entertainment for adults there are more than ample. Cycling, sports, pool games, evening entertainment everything available, we didn't use it. The beach is small, but nice and well maintained. Beach chairs, also in the shade are sufficiently available. Also a towel service there is.
