A choice of Jamaican, this had a choice 1 day then the other days only 1 dish !! or American ( eggs any style &/or bacon , pancakes. These were good if you like it! Fresh fruit. They need to put jugs of water & pots of coffee on the table to help the waiting on staff. Some , one young gentlemen was very friendly & helpful , the others were just "doing their jobs ! " .. had to ask for water , milk .. etc . lunch . Brilliant chicken sandwich and burger on 1 day , another day .., not so good ! Bell boy staff very friendly & good. Mini mart 24 hour by lift good , the one in the complex ok, not very friendly. I would return to this hotel for its location & price .
Altogether excellent experience. Clean, spacious room with full kitchen and balcony. Friendly and accommodating staff, delicious Jamaican breakfast and passes to awesome Doctors Cave beach just across the street! While asking the front desk for info on finding a driver, the man at the corner desk (concierge) helped us find a driver who brought us to Ocho Rios, Dunns River Falls, and then became our driver throughout the remainder of our trip! Couldn't have been more pleased with location or accommodations.
A group of three couples selected this property for a 2-night stay preparatory to boarding a cruise ship to Cuba. As it turned out, it met our needs admirably. Is it the perfect Jamaica getaway spot? Probably not - there are dozens of other choices in Montego Bay - but for what we needed it was more than adequate. The rooms were large, actually suites, and a bit dated, but everything worked well. The sleeping room had A/C but the living room/kitchen did not. No problem. There was a nice balcony a good breeze to be had. We took all our meals on the property and enjoyed them all. I do wish there had been printed menus but that was not a significant drawback. Access to the (fee req'd) beach was via an elevator that dropped one 10 stories to sea level. We had very good help from the the Bell Captain in getting general information and in lining up transport to the airport when needed. If you go to Montego Bay, I highly recommend that you carry a large quantity of small denomination bills as tipping was most appreciated. ALL service staff everywhere on the island pretty much expects a gratuity even if it is small. US, Canadian, Euros, and Jamaican are used.
This is up toward the top of Queens Dr. and does have a lovely view from the Restaurant. While the rooms do have kitchens, you still want to make sure to bring up some of your key needs with you. They do have a commissary, but prices are a bit high. Their prices in the restaurant are a bit high, and the Jerk chicken Pasta is spicy and very good for $12. I made it into 2 meals. The staff at the bar are great. We had fun trying to make new drinks and watch some TV. They don't offer a shuttle or taxi, and you need to negotiate with any Taxi you take. They have a insured taxi but charge $15-20. I found one to take me up there for $8. Make sure you try to stay away from buildings A-C as they are right off the main highway, and your bedroom faces that way.
None, just like tipping a penny. Service at the front desk can give you a negative opinion of the hotel, if you can push through that you can have a decent stay. Montego Bay Proper offer good fish within walking distance. Nyam Jam is a little longer walk for local food, but eating in will cost alot more than take out of the same food, ck prices first for either.
