3rd time back and still doesn't disappoint. Had an amazing time AGAIN. Stayed in the suites this time, very spacious and close to everything! Can't understand how anyone can complain about the food, it was amazing!!!!Special thanks to Edward Ferron and Ramone in the buffet forthe fabulous service, Damian Cambell at the jetty bar for getting the party started and keeping it going and Philip Smith in the A'la carte for fabulous service and being possibly the happiest waiter in the world! We decided to do our own thing this year instead of relying on the TUI trips, we found an awesome local guide, CC, very reasonable who tailored trips to us. Took us to see a side of Jamaica we'd never seen, he made sure we were looked after and was very knowledgeable.Few gripes with: The noise from the staff walkie talkies, so loud especially in the night when the security staff seemed to congregate and take shelter in the stairwell of the suites. The wifi constantly dropping out and the tv being off for nearly 2 days with no explanation or timeline from the staff as to when it would be fixed but really they are minor compared to the rest of the holiday!!!! See you again next time x
We went in March 2017 for my partners 50th. The little cottages were clean and tidy although a little shabby. We had a cottage which would have easily accommodated five people, there was a fridge and air con in the master bedroom and the living area. Outside there was a well kept garden area with hammocks scattered around. The beach was cleared of seaweed every day but this shows that the sea was very choppy to keep bringing it in every day. For seven days of our nine day stay here the red flag was up, which prevented most of the water activities but this is not the fault of the accommodation, weather is weather. You do not need to do the six thirty rush to the beach as there are plenty of beds and shade, we often went down around ten and later and were never without a bed each. We had a couple of rainy days again, no fault of the accommodation. The food was much the same each day with little variety. I think that they need to look at more fresh fish for the menu. The breakfast offered a great variety and the omelettes were particularly enjoyable. The entertainment team worked tirelessly to keep you busy all day with sporting activities and in the evening with audience participation. Unfortunately unless you like audience participation there is not a lot of variety in the entertainment. We went horse riding an to the Dunns Rivers Falls, both were amazing experiences however you could hire a taxi and do it for less than the tour operators charge. Also apparently the Canadian excursions were more expensive than the English so if you can get on the English excursion go for it :)
3rd time here, so I know what to expect. It's a little more authentic than pristine clinical cookie cut resorts, but feels much much more welcoming. Food great (sorry slimming world but it's gonna take me a few weeks to work off the bammy).. Suites were large and functional (who wants to spend a day in the room when you have a beautiful pool to chill by)? Okay please take this as constructive criticism - Get the WIFI fixed (I'll fix it for you if you like). I needed to keep in touch, and it was a pain to walk to the reception to get coverage. Also the golden rule of service is if you do something wrong, set some expectations on how long it will take to fix - Not just the wifi, the TV. It helps customers. Trust me.Now the SUPERSTARS:-Edward Ferron- above and beyond all expectations. Helped my wife with her sunburn and nothing ever was too much troubleRamone - for exceptional dinner serviceDamian - the king of the Jetty Bar.Philip Smith. Quite possibly the nicest man alive. Give this man a raise!! I'll be back. No real complaints. No problems, just situations :)All is irie mon..

My wife and I stayed at RDCC for the 4th time from 8th March till 22nd March and once again had a wonderful time.We were allocated Cabin 130 on the far end of the resort, still only a couple minutes walk from the centre of the resort, room well appointed and had everything we needed, we had a massive walk in shower which had great pressure and didnt fluctuate in temperature, we had a massive bed (a proper frame) which was very very comfortable, our room was kept spotless by the lovely Carmelita, the room attendants really work hard and do a great job.The daytime entertainment was very good and you could get involved in games or not, no pressure to play and most of the games were fun to play and break the lazy days up a little.The entertainment guys were all very good, extremely polite and worked very hard to keep everyone involved, well done to all of them , especially Swiffa and Mr Kool who really are 2 of the nicest lads i have ever met, a real credit to the hotel.We always attend at the same time of year to celebrate our anniversary and the biggest compliment you can pay this hotel is that I would say over 50% of the guests return year after year, so we holiday in a beautiful with people we consider to be great friends, makes for a fun trip.This hotel encourages people to talk and mingle and the atmosphere as a result is fantastic.The food was again superb, how anyone can complain is beyond me, never was there a mealtime that we couldn't find something we liked, what more do you want?The grounds are fantastic and again the gardeners work so hard keeping the resort looking fabulous.We love our home from home and will certainly be back next year without a doubt.The only bad thing was this year, the weathers wasn't as good as usual, however not sure anything can be done about that!Well done to RDCC for looking after us wonderfully well once again, thank you and see you next year !
