"A beautiful hotel and well kept"

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Excellent location. Although everything was included in our package, the main town is only a short trip away if you fancy a change. Also great for local shopping - nice shopping centers over the road! Seems like a very secure hotel.

Didn't really eat or drink out and about. Beach at hotel was nice especially the island. There is plenty of excursions although most of them take over 90 minutes to get to which takes a huge chunk out of your day.

Montego Bay has many bars and restaurants. We hoped that the hotel would supply a lunch box when on trips arranged at the hotel, but alas not. We had a walk around the mall but wasn't too impressed.

Not much to do outside hotel, you are made to believe it isn't safe to go outside your resort but we walked over to local shops and were fine. Also went to local restaurant and bar. There are lots of trips to try, I can recommend Dunns waterfalls.

Loads to do and loads to see! You could either sat by the pool or go on the trips? We did 6 trips and were there for 14 nights so trip day then chill day! I could not say anything went wrong on any of these trips cause it simply didnt!

Overall Resort Rating:

Excellent

Only 10 minutes from the airport, no night flights out so its quite at night. Only 10 minitues from montego bay, taxi quite expensive at $40 return but you get to keep your driver for the duration.Lots of exciting and interesting activities, dunns falls and ricks cafe are a must. Its okay to go out alone although you can get hassled a little bit, but a polite no thankyou and they accept your decision.

"We did not visit Montego bay"

Overall Resort Rating:

Good

Open quote

We did not visit Montego Bay as a part of our two week stay hence we have nothing to say. Our resort was circa 20 miles away and we chose to visit Negril twice instead. As with most public places, you have to be a bit "street wise " on the beach at Negril. However the water sports and margaritas were great ! Along the coast a bit is Ricks Bar, don't bother, we went twice. Food and drinks very poor, staff mostly "rude", so spend your cash in an establishment that will appreciate your cash.

The resort was ok, we went on various trips but none of them were actually in Montego Bay, so only really saw it through the coach window! We went on a trip to Negril which has the most beautiful beaches, I wouldn’t say Montego Bays beaches are anything special.

"Hotel is in Lucea not Montego Bay"

Overall Resort Rating:

Poor

Open quote

Lucea is a small town with no nightlife, restaurants e.c.t. I'ts about a 35 minute drive from Montego Bay. We had a hire car so no issue for us & the hotel ran lots of excursions.

Overall Resort Rating:

Montego Bay is a great shopping experience, I wouldn't be put off going it is totally safe but not really for kids, hotels and trips are but not mobay itself. Hassle and offers of ?????? Will put some off but just say no thank and it's fine. Eating out in holidaymakers places is expensive eat in local bars, good fun and cheaper. Trips are fantastic especially cool runnings, catamaran & dunns river, brill. Not cheap but brill.

The shopping is not good in the Montego Bay area. You have to travel at least one hour to hour and half to go anywhere.

"On the coast with beautiful coves"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

Excursions - We booked a few excursions, always have done via the first choice reps following the welcome meeting.

1st trip was Ricks Cafe, good value for money ($28pp) Negritos beach stay for 3 hrs, shopping mall for 1hr, and onto Ricks cafe to watch cliff diving, listen to band, and watch the sunset.

2nd trip - Bob Marley trip and Dunns River Falls. Bob Marley trip good, stop off for food ( included in price $110pp), but food was poor. Dunns River Falls very good,also at the start of the falls was told that we had the option of purchasing a DVD which would contain 15mins of the guests climbing the falls to music, still photographs of the guests taken at various points, and the rest of the DVD all about jamaica, cost of $40. We did purchase one, but were never shown an example. We paid our tour operator, and were told when we got back on the bus that our DVD would be delivered to our hotel that evening. When we set off back to the hotel ( approx 2hr drive) we were surprised that the coach driver was driving extremely slow, we later realised after 1hr that the coach was holding back for the delivery of the DVDs (all 3 of them!) after they had been made (this took 1 hr of extremely slow driving before we were reached), again not explained by the tour operator! Even more annoying when arriving back in the UK, and excited to watch the DVD, there appeared to be no information about jamaica as explained, and only 1 still photograph of the first person to climb the falls (not value for money!)
