This hotel offers up cabin-style rooms surrounded by tropical gardens. And it’s just a short stroll from a white-sand beach.
This beachfront hotel’s got a great spot in serene Runaway Bay. It’s a short walk to the town’s restaurants and bars. And at the hotel, accommodation comes in the form of little wooden cottages.
There are sea views from the main pool and the waterfront Asian à la carte. Or you can get a prime shot of the ocean from the cocktail bar. Down at the beach, there’s a range of watersports, too.

Lovely Hotel plenty of space
Loved this hotel and would go back the food and drink was very good plenty of choice. The al carte resturants were very good too and Philip in the carribean al carte upstairs he was a brilliant waiter big smiles and could not do enough for us. There is plenty of space round the pools and on the beach so no fighting over sunbeds. We had a problem with our room and it was resovlved straight away. All the staff were excellent. The only critisim we had was the entertainment in the evening when you go to Jamaicia it would be nice to have a evening of reggae music. Old reggae and new would be good. Too many dance nights would rather hear a band all night and not games either.More
I loved the hotel and staff were good except the guy who worked at the disco bar .. Miserable. Happy with the food and drink .. Steve the taxi arranged some great trips from the hotel .. The Tui rep never saw her .!! They should have free wifi and safe but that's Jamaica .!! The fishing with Bruce rip off if you want to go fishing see mikey the coolest dude in Jamaica or see stero at sharkies he can arrange some great trips.!! I love Jamaica and will go back again one day but it is very very expensive so beware.. And loved Yvonne our cleaner she is lovely ,. XxMore
my own opinion
it took a while for jamaica to grow on me, i was horrified that what i see when i got on the coach but as toy headed inland it came very different. we got to the hotel and it seemed ok at first, till a few days in. there is no communication between staff and management where the holiday makers are concerned. the quiet pool bar was supposed to open at 10am. On average it was 10.15 or later on some days. if they had ran out of drinks then the bar tender would ring to main bar for provisions to be brought to that bar. I find it degrading and dismal that we had to wait over an hour on more than one occasion for beer or cream rum, 02 gas cylinders and so on. Got the feeling bar tenders just a minority couldnt really care if they had drinks or even if they wanted to be there or not. You had one lady there that just totally blanked us all together and just couldnt be bothered to listen or even serve the right drinks. cleaners on average it should take around 30-45 minutes to clean the room, we counted somewhere between 10 -15 minutes to clean ours, there was no pride in the work but seemed just to be a chore, again minority i think. restaurant really excellent aray of food and varies catering for all, A different menu every night there and was very busy, But i have to be honest no chips or fries for two weeks and had not seen that in any hotel to be honest before. They do rely on their spices here so some food was hot and tasted nicely, the staff in the restaurant were really happy and friendly till second night from last when one young chappy had a right strop on, i heard mutter things but would not repeat them, felt that he didnt want to be there or serve anyone. entetanment team well done all of you, for the stuff you done every night, fair play where credit is due, you worked well together and have respect for each other so i say thankyou. Freestyle, you dont have to prove how good u are or have attitude, just be as u are and enjoy what you do, have fun my friend. trips i can certainly recommend the cool running's excursion, it was good and a very interesting safari day with snorkeling and then climbing the waterfalls and then discoing on the boat back, well enjoyed our day so thankyou. Neisha you are a very polite and friendly young lady, you have one hell of a job to do for which ever complaint you get, you tried your best to sort them out so i say thankyou, it is ashame that yout manager Lee Sinclair is very relaxed to his staff. He does need to take a good look at what goes on and deal with it instead of passing the buck all the time. I couid go on to say bad things about the hotel cause i see a lot of things wrong there and it wouldnt be good if i list them here. Let me make this perfectly clear that this is my own words and my own opinion, it is up to you whether you like it or notMore
Expectations shattered on arrival!
Sadly our stay at this average hotel was ruined on arrival when they explained they were overbooked therefore we were ere expected to stay in a dungeon of a room until our booked garden room became available. However this happened on more than one occasion during our stay here. Every day people seemed to be told this on arrival. The room we were offerred was in a corner of a courtyard that admittedly was very pretty however the layout was such that it was very dark and the sitting area was also very dark and no windows in the room. I found it unacceptable and after 2 and a half hours a suitable room was offered but this was after a lot of discussion. Eventually more than 24 hours later we unpacked in our garden room. However by then we were disappointed so the rest of my review reflects this. Good things - the swing bar on the jetty. Very relaxing. The entertainment team are excellent if you are into this sort of thing on holiday. The Jasmine Delta bookable restaurant at night was fairly good but as a snack place during the day the food was mediocre. The gardens are pretty. It is possible to snorkel out to the reef if the sea is calm enough which I thoroughly enjoyed. The garden rooms are airy and very pleasant to stay in. It is possible to catch a local bus into Ochi Rios from close to the hotel. Bad things for us - the beach is mainly man made. However it has been done in a very nice way, formed into coves with plenty of sunbeds for everyone. Main buffet restaurant felt very canteenish Swimming pool area / main buffet /bar area very small and uninviting. In conclusion we have very mixed feelings about this hotel. However I must say the staff were generally very helpful and friendly .More
Good but could do better.
We arrived only to be given room 24!!!! Right next to a al carte restaurant. Thought ok we need to eat last sitting was 2030hrs. Only to hear banging and plates banging to 2300hrs. When calling reception asking when will they finish, we were told it was also the snack bar that doesn't close until 0100hrs. An hour later it's quiet, not for long as they go back in at 0609hrs to clean!!!!!! Back on the phone and get told we were lucky to get that room(beach front). No luck involved beach front upgrade was booked and paid for a year ago. We spoke to the reception manager the next day and give them their due we were moved. To number 12 at the end of the jetty bar! However the noise was no where as bad. All the hassle and not sleeping after a 10hr flight left us missing 2 days of our relaxing holiday! Next the person who carved the meat, you would think they paid got it as the portion, mire accurately sample was tiny! Ask for more and the sigh and filling of the eyes start! It is a good hotel and with a few minor tweaks could be improved. Daily mosquito spray should be standard as they leave the doors open when cleaning. They need water coolers where you can fill your water bottle yourself. More shades to go with the masses of sun loungers. The food was standard and after 2 weeks it's good to get home for a proper meal(buffet style is fine now and then). Most of the staff were very friendly. Now back to reality. More
