- What's Included
What can I say el Greco is not my #1 in terms of my preference in the decor unless I'm trying to feel homie which is why I actually go. It is splendid for its customer service and it has a nice restaurant view. It's not a bad hotel at all just needs some renovation. However, the renovation is not a necessity if they are going for a homie vibe. Maybe a year or 2 from now they might need to but it's great for now with regards to feeling at home and relaxed😌
Great place to stay after the long flight to Jamaica. They welcomed us with a glass of rum punch and set us up with a great room for the price. We played in the pool until bedtime. Great place for breakfast. Not so much for late-night drinks as the bartender appeared to be exhausted and ready to go home. Not a fun late night guy. Grab some beers on your way from the airport and enjoy yourself. Beautiful grounds.
I stayed at a nice studio apartment in Garden Studios in the El Greco complex of Montego Bay. I arrived in the afternoon and taxi from the airport cost $15. I got out my taxi and there was a staff person working at El Greco that pointed me in direction of Garden Studios. The owners and visitors staying at Garden Studios have access to all the amenities at El Greco, which was the best part of my stay here. The El Greco Resort has all the amenities: a pool, taxi service, commissary, and restaurant . I enjoyed swimming in the pool on days I didn't go to the beach. I enjoyed meals at El Greco Seaview Restaurant, especially the Jamaican breakfast or American Breakfast with Pancakes or French Toast that cost $8; however clients that stay at El Greco usually have their breakfast included. The restaurant also has a bar that serves delicious cocktails with a reasonably priced lunch and dinner, all prices quoted in U$. The little commissary store was very close to the Garden Studios and they had everything simple I would want like drinks and snacks. The pool was open 24 hours but a lifeguard was on duty 8am -5pm, it wasn't lighted at night, so not very safe for swimming after sunset. The 24 hour supermarket where I could buy things to cook was located on the 2nd floor of Montego Bay Club Condominium building. That same building gave me access to the Hip Strip and was in close proximity to the Doctor Cave's Beach Club that cost $6 to enter. That is where I spent my beach days in Montego Bay. I would recommend walking the hip strip to shop and figure out where you would like to eat however, my favorite place hands down was The Pelican Grill next to Burger King across from Margaritaville. There are also some cheap eats on the strip like Irie Grill, that has delicious Jamaican home cooking, it can be found walking in the direction on Hip Strip towards Decameron located on a block with a local Mini Market and ATM. The closest ATM was the Scotiabank ATM located next to Doctor Cave's Beach Club. During my month stay I traveled around the island to Negril and Ocho Rios. Kevin, taxi driver contracted with El Greco, was always available giving me the official price -$10-$20. FYI, Negril is a $100 trip (one-way) and Ocho Rios is $120 trip (one way) from El Greco. I had to arrange with him for pick ups and wait times. I overall enjoyed the quiet location of the apartment. I would even recommend renting a car to really enjoy Jamaica because there is parking available at El Greco. I would definitely stay in the studio apartment or even El Greco's hotel if the studio apartment isn't available for my travel dates.
The hotel room is more like a one bedroom suit. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom but not the kitchen and living room area. Although not updated the room was clean. I left three days early because at the time the forecast was for a category 5 hurricane to hit the area. The hotel charged me a one night penalty even under the extraordinary forecast of an hurricane. Not a happy customer
I always stay at this resort and can say I never had a complaint.Warm. Warm welcome at the reception with a free tastes of Jamaican fruit punch the rooms are nice and relaxing I would stay at this resort a million times off and not to mention the view is to die for and your hotel band give you free access to one of the best beaches in Jamaica.
