    Place is a low end budget hotel and since we are here as part of a package I cannot speak to price. Rooms are nice sized but no amenities. Like a concrete block cell with A/C. Old and shabby. Inattentive staff. Pool in the property but not attractive at all. One day is all I can take here.

    Quaint and uncrowded but not fancy.

    Rooms is one of the older resorts in Och Rios, definitely not five star but had its charms. On the plus side: * the resort was not especially crowded nor was the beach, unlike the adjacent beaches that were crowded and noisy. * staff, other than the reception desk, were friendly and helpful * Rooms is not a gated community where you spend your vacation with the same people you arrived with on the plane, and it's an easy walk to downtown Ochi shops * the tour guides by the pool, Captain Kirk and Morgan were outstanding. Morgan toured us to Dunn's River Falls, The Blue Hole, tubing on the White River and to the Botanical Gardens and Konoko Falls. He made special stops for us at the bank and the grocery store and best of all, their prices are far less than offered by Sunwing. * the bar closes around 7:30 so evenings by the pool to enjoy the warm ocean breezes are quiet. On the negative side: * the place is run down, in disrepair, and in need of refurbishing. Trim and door frames were cracked, broken, and in some cases entirely missing. When we arrived, the bathroom door wouldn't latch closed, however it was repaired promptly. There were no clothes hangers in the closet and lock for the safe had to be rented. * once the curtains were closed there were visible holes in them. * the a/c was unpredictable and couldn't always be controlled with the remote. Remote batteries were dead when we arrived, and were replaced twice before it actually worked * continental breakfast was rudimentary: cereal, toast, fruit (usually watermelon), juice and tea and coffee. The sole toaster only worked on one side and required retrieving your toast with a fork in the other side. The second toaster that appeared after a few days did little more than compress the bread. * kitchen was very slow. If you order a la carte, be prepared to wait. It took half an hour to get the two poached eggs that I ordered one morning. All in all, if you are looking for an economical place to stay and save your money for tours and shopping, this is the place.

    Where do I start...

    I don’t know what I was thinking but I do know I won’t be staying here ever again. Call me spoiled or whatever but... yeah I’m all set. Shall we go on down the list? The front desk & checkin was a bit haphazard. The girls are very young with little to no training so customer service??? What’s that? But they do enjoy gossip & paying attention to other people’s business instead of the clients they have right in front of them. This is Jamaica after all; they do love mix up. The room was as far as possible & there’s no elevator on the property so be prepared. There was a sheet & a coverlet on the bed. NO BLANKET(S). Bathroom was clean? Looks like they paint everything before they clean it. Including the tub. Hair dryer with no outlet to use it. Ironing board with no iron. Decent tv channels though. But did u come to Jamaica to watch tv? This place is truly a hole in the wall. It’s right on the main drag for road side food & revelry. So there’s that. Beach side you will be accosted by the usual & you have to PAY for a beach chair!!! The food sucks at breakfast, just take the free bread & butter & rum! Don’t waste $10 go up the road & buy better food. I could go on & on but I think u get the drift. Just don’t expect much & you’ll be fine.

    Really nice for the money spent

    This place is nothing fancy but definitely a great place if your not trying to spend too much money. It's clean and has friendly staff. The pool and bar is nice and best of all the location is the best you can get in Ocho Rios!! Right beside the market, walking distance to restaurants, stores, night clubs, pretty much everything!! I would definitely stay there again:)

    The hotel was run down and out dated, staff were ok and it was clean. I was booked to have an ocean view I had a parking lot view. Appliances didn’t work well and plumbing was rough. I’m a not fancy kind of person but this was rough for me. Be ready for people to hustle you to make a buck if you hit the beach. The hotel, I believe is being torn down so not sure if this is helpful.
