We are the Karnevalstrubel in Germany escaped a week and wanted to enjoy the sun beach. It only two days that sunshine and otherwise much rain was for the holiday period but not the fault of the unusual course hotel.
The guests of the hotel mainly consists of us citizens and Europeans and Canadians only little. You should be able to speak english.
Children have experienced in the area we not.
The hotel is not the newest but we have us Perhaps felt very comfortable there. The room were large and equipped with all, what you need (mini-bar, safe, TV, balcony, ironing board with iron, coffee making facilities). In the big shower you feel so comfortable and everything worked perfectly also.
The 225 units were scattered about in the extensive gardens and are decorated in a colonial style. In the center of the 'village' were the restaurants (main restaurant, FRZ, Italian, Jamaican and Japanese), reception, shops, Ward, SPA and fitness facilities. Between the village and the beach was huge, well-kept pool, and above the village was the 9-hole golf course.
Culinarily we were served in the main restaurant, the locations we both breakfast and also for lunch and dinner. We did not sit in enclosed spaces and so the FRZ and Japanese restaurant not only did try. In the italian restaurant was rather it and Jamaican cuisine snack such as pizza, pasta, and burgers or hot dogs-so ideal for in between. The service in all areas was extremely courteous and friendly. The waiter knew prepared on the second day, with whom we wanted to sit, what wine or champagne we wished, etc.-in short, you really noticed!
The beach, the sea-as is the weak point of the hotel. You actually can not swim in the sea, since everywhere coral reefs and stones the swimming impossible. The beach itself was very well maintained and it was on comfortable lounge chairs under palm trees.
Something strange is the practice, that the hotel pool area with the beach only against payment of better 85 dollars per person and day and the time of 10:30 A.M. in until 2:00 P.M. to enter is. You want there seems to be no guests, the hotel is not also there.
The animation team was professional and not to pushy. The evening entertainment was on a high artistic level-the jamaicans have just music in the blood, also a idea to loud.
The service was with drinks included in the all inclusive-service very generous and good quality on top-level. If we wanted to drink our sparkling wine in the afternoon, we got the whole bottle usually given.
In the vicinity of the hotel there is nothing it, what is worth mentioning. We have made a private taxi from flight and looked at us the crusader life in ocho Rios.
The booked trip (100, -dollar) to Kingston we us should have better. We began in the morning to 7:00 a.m. and arrived in the evening at 8:00 P.M. back to the hotel. We have seen the most in king cemetery, Bob Marley museum and the break at the Devon house made. Was it through the old town by bus in five minutes. Off was not because of opposing Committee feared change gangs. The guide told us... We are therefore practically all day bus and have seen-Kingston-actually nothing.
Conclusion: the hotel is very to recommend without restrictions.
