Rooms on the Beach Ocho Rios
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I called ahead to make sure my local friend and his children could visit us at hotel. They assured me this would be ok. The whole reason I was taking this trip was to visit my friend and meet his family and so that he could meet my son. Once there they would not allow my friend at hotel. They tried to charge me a $25/person fee that they did not mention when I called. I would have stayed at a nicer place had I known that. So to recap, my friend couldn't come to hang out at their pool or beach but the hustlers whom approached myself and my 3 year old son to offer 1) pot 2) Hash 3) "whatever else I was into" 4) boat rides 5) a good time, were not only welcome but offered lawn chairs and picnic tables to sit at. The room was completely wet from condensation. I assumed from the AC. We slept in a wet bed and slipped on the wet floor several times. My son has a bump on his head where his head hit the floor. When I spoke to the front desk about these issues they were rude and condescending. Shortly after, while I was out, someone entered my room and turned the AC all the way down again and went through my pill box, stealing a few of my prescription meds. I hope they get real high off of that thyroid and iodine. Idiots. When "the head of security" came to talk to me she looked me up and down slowly and deliberately and then said, "I understand you have a dilemma." To which I replied, "clearly nothing is going to get resolved here." and I walked away.I made a very expensive international call which took 23 expensive international minutes to ask for a refund because I no longer felt safe and was leaving the hotel. The lady I spoke to eventually told me the front desk person they spoke to would not agree to a refund so there would not be one. I only stayed in the hotel 2 of the 4 nights booked. The first night a didn't sleep because the bed was wet and the second night I didn't sleep because I kept the lights on because I was scared. The next morning I booked another rental and left the hotel.
Stay was ok. And I mean just okay! I've stayed at many sleep cheap many times before but this was the first in a long time and I must say I was disappointed. The room was moldy the drapes were covered in mild dew and so were the lounge chairs by the pool. TV was old and didn't show well. Toilet was old and slow. And the Room was all the way at the end of the building. I felt like this was the worst room on the property. The balcony don't have chairs to sit on outside! The room was very basic and the amenities were minimal, not even any shampoo or conditioner. Although the bathroom may need a few updates, the room itself was very clean & we had a beautiful view from our balcony. Upon check-in the airconditioning was not working but it was repaired very quickly . The service of all the staff (front desk & restaurant) was excellent! On the last day seen roach in the bath tub! Pros: The location was perfect & the service (staff) was excellent, 100% polite, courteous & queries answered rapidly. Close to everything in walking distance! We enjoy tasty patties, your favorite place restaurant, and cool treat ice cream store APPLE VOKA ICE CREAM IS THE BEST! Great location on the beach and walking distance to everything.
Travelled here on November with my teenage daughter I must say was bit nervous but no need to be at all . Beach is beautiful and clean, you can buy coconut off the sellers he will even prepare it for you . Ice cream trolley comes the rum and raisin is delicious. Felt safe with security and lifeguards . Very friendly people and always good music laying . You can see the cruise ships come in at breakfast and we even had a party on the beach . KFC and Pizza Hut within walking distance . Rooms clean and cool . Be returning soon .
Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights for my 29th Birthday celebrations we arrived early and our room wasn't ready so had to wait 20 minutes which was fine and the staff were lovely we was there when hurricane matthew hit and the hotel was very good with the update of the storm and what to do in a emergency me and my partner were the only ones who ate In the resturant the hotel was very quiet at this time of season the food was massive and tasty the drinks were nice especially the alcoholic ones very strong though, the room was huge and very comfortable we was near the car park but still had a good view of the beach, you get a ice basket you can use for your drinks which is good for each room, the staff were so friendly and helpful the actual beach was disappointing as it looked damaged and full of rubbish not good but apart from that the hotel was very clean and in a great location for shops and bars but because of the hurricane everything was shut in the evening. Would stay here again for a very pleasant relaxing stay and friendly staff and they gave me coconut cake for my birthday which was nice
We needed a place to spend one night and it served it's purpose. I would not spend a full vacation here, as the property is in need of a little TLC. The price is however very reasonable and comes with continental breakfast. The reception was not rude, but not friendly. The waiter at breakfast in the morning was more polite. I noticed though that none of them introduced them self by name. A little customer service training or refresher could easily fix this. Service however was not bad. There are no elevators, so travel light if you decide to stay here because you will have to otherwise lift heavy bags up the long flight of stairs. The room had a nice big flat screen tv. Lighting in the room could be better. I would stay again if I am over nighting in Ocho Rios.
