Spent four days at this beach front hotel. Great location, friendly staff, good food and nice clean room. We will certainly use this hotel again as staff were great and nothing was too much trouble.

The resort is an older place which is now being updated and there is a planned expansion. The rooms are spacious and well cared for. Service was excellent, both in the restaurant and the rooms. The Beach is wonderful, water fantastic. The food is freshly made and very good. During the night there is a watchman on duty, so no...

When we arrived at the hotel it was late. We were shown straight to our room by one of the fantastic staff, but we first walked inside I thought we'd made a mistake. The room was in need of decorating. However when we woke up the next morning and went down to breakfast ( great) we realised we had stumbled...

The rooms need renovation (which the owners are working on) but they were very clean. The staff was amazing, friendly and accomodating. Food was fabulous. Loved the full breakfast and lobster pizza. Food was great! Very laid back and location was near many activities. Lots of local music nearby and cannot wait to return.

The staff is awesome! Very personable and on top of things. We had 2 small issues and they were attended too immediately. Great beach and perfect location. I can't wait to go back next year. Only complaints; I would like to see an upgrade on the televisions though and wifi didn't work in the rooms. Only in the common areas.

Stopped by Jamaica Tamboo for another one of their fantastic lobster pizzas. There were 4 of us, and I don't remember what everyone else had - I was too busy eating my pizza as slowly as I could so it would last as long as it could. big chunks of perfectly cooked lobster and all the rest of the fixings...

Thank you for your comments and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused during your stay. There was a problem with the water supply during your stay with us due to the large influx of visitors to negril.
