Staff was untrained and rude, amenities were not as stated on website, food was limited selection and not good, room had mold so had to be transferred to another. Overall there for 3 nights and was not pleased
Staff was nice. Food was good. Too crowded and too many kids Beach was terrible. Lazy river was small. Air conditioning broke in our room.
Those were the nicest people I have ever met on a vacation! The place was just dreamy and yet fun and the food was outstanding. Didn't get to go to the club but I enjoyed the shows. Some were a little hokey, but they tried to give a little something for the adult and the children. Very good with the kids! Exercise programs were great...I did a power walk which was really a power walk through half of the golf course and a spinning class class and water aerobics....which taught me some lessons to use use in other places. Even the servers were entertaining (Omelet man and stir fry grill.) in my room I got te sunrises everyday. And from various location you could see spectacular sunsets as well. I am definitely coming back and telling everyone. I also believe the stay to be a great deal for all that is included. I loved the water slide and lazy river too. The beach was very nice too! they are expanding the beach area and adding to the facility. Now the beach was nice to me! But we went to Doctor's Cave beach too and OMG! That was the clearest water I have ever seen! It was spectacular. The Hilton's beach cannot compare to this one. I believe the Doctors Cave is a natural beach, while the Hilton is man made.....the difference is clear. They were doing some construction while we were on the beach. That was noisy, but didn't take away my enjoyment. The one of the elevators was broken most of the time we were there which was to me the most annoying thing because it took a longer than normal time to go upstairs and get back down.
The staff was friendly and helpful The food was not terrible, but not very impressive. This was our first time at an all inclusive, but it felt like a tourist farm. We felt like products in an assembly line.
This was our second vacation at the Hilton Rose Hall and we were pleasantly surprised to see all the improvements to the facilities. Within the last 6 months they added new balconies to all the rooms, a new beachside restaurant, approximately half mile of additional beach, and appear extending 100 feet into the ocean with a beautiful view of the hotel. Our first trip was with our two children but we decided to return alone for our second trip. Due to the recent expansion, the resort never appeared to be crowded. Since most of the families stayed close to v lazy river pool, the other pool always seemed very quiet and relaxing. We even had a chance to speak to the manager within the next year or two. Can't wait to return with my children.
Fantastic services staff and the food and entertainment was excellent. Saff, food, service
The staff was nice and the beds were comfy The best beach area costs an additional $100/day for a Cabana and the Moonstone restaurant took 4 hours from waiting till receiving food. We also learned a Jamaican minute means about 30-60 mins.
Proximity to the beach, friendly staff, and cleanliness. The food is not all that great.
The service staff was great and very helpful. The rooms were okay and comfortable The food was very disgusting. They really need to ramp up the food service. No type of real Jamaican cuisine. They should compensate me for the awful dining experience.
The food was excellent, staff was very professional The smoking / non smoking areas need to be more defined especially for kids and people with respiratory problems.
The food was lovely and the room was comfy. The staff was very courteous and very polite. The food at the grill needs a little work. I visited there twice and in the two instance the food was badly burnt, not very sumptuous at all.
My girlfriend and I were extremely comfortable from start to finish. Impeccably friendly staff and delicious food and drinks included in the purchase. BEWARE: the Romantic Dinner, wine, and Spa options are deceptively not included in the "all inclusive" purchase, and prices aren't available until you express interest to the concierge. Awkward to find out when you're there.
Adults only and the staff was amazing! The staff was so kind went out of their way for you and always so sweet. They remember you after only meeting you once! It was mostly couples which isn't a bad thing but could be annoying for some. It's a long way from most excursions. It's not a 5 Star compared to American Standards but for sure a 4-4.5!
Great service; the staff was very friendly and responsive. The shower was great (poor water pressure is a deal breaker for me). Balconies off every room make great places to watch the amazing sunrise and sunset. I got an ocean view room which was totally worth the extra money. The room furnishings are dated and the mattress felt like it was made of concrete. The food in Rose Hall left a great deal to be desired, especially at dinner; I was expecting a more expansive selection of Jamaican food.
I was very relax in this hotel the staff was nice and friendly
The fresh fruit juices, jerk chicken on the beach, the water aerobics The lack of available restaurant reservations, by the time we checked in they were all taken for the entire duration of our flight. The food was full of MSG, the buffet was like a shark tank feeding frenzy, dangerous at times with people running every direction and trying to get their food before you. The bar line was always a 10-15 minute wait, even after we tipped the bartenders generously. The pool chairs were completely reserved before 8am, reserved with towels but people were not there the entire day. We never once had a chair at the pool and there were 60+ each time just sitting there reserves but their "owners" we're no where near the pool area. The staff should not allow chairs to be reserved all day long whenever people are not using them. We paid the same amount for the all inclusive and did not enjoy a chair at the pool, a meal in the speciality restaurant!!!! The shops across the street were a rip off and the locals demanded tips for everything. They were not helpful, just wanted our money and were not shy in asking for it. I will never travel to Jamacia or any Riu properties again, this was my second Riu and was worst than the first sub par property.
Very friendly staff, good food. New Jamaican smoking laws prohibit smoking on most of the property except designated areas, of which there are only two.
The staff were all very polite. Very engaging
Jamaica has fantastic weather compared to snow and cold! The beaches were nice and clean. Pool was fantastic. There are many opportunities (+$) available with buses/taxis always ready within minutes to get you anywhere (+$). The food is pretty good but don't expect high quality. You should think ordinary buffet in the US. The only specialty restaurant that you should go to is the steak place. Unfortunately, like the other places, you won't be able to get a reservation even though the place WILL be empty when you walk by repeatedly. So, just go 15 mins after seating and then you can jump right in (done). Except for the steak place, the Italian and Asian food can all be obtained in the regular buffet line so it isn't very special. If you have food allergies/issues, you are on your own. Service everywhere is hit or miss. You'll be amazed by the service and then let down the next hour. I think training would go a long way. The amazing service is pretty much just the attitude of the employee. If you are looking for fun only, this place is great. If you are looking for luxury/quality/food/etc, go elsewhere.
the hotel staff was well above friendly they all worked hard never stopped working always wanted to help you in any way the best resort i ever stayed at the best assocates ever they had a sewage leak at spa every day you had to walk by it to get to everthing at resort the smell was very bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you walk by to go eat 5 times aday smell bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all 6 days and nights jerry barron stayed 8 -28 to 9-3
If you want to really know Jamaica and not feel like your in a tourist bubble , this place gives you that experience , its quiet the staff is engaging , the view is breathtaking , i say if its your 1st time visiting Ja do a hotel, but if you want to experience Jamaica from a different perspective and feel like you live there , I'd book at ocean view villa
Location The room had splattered mosquito carcasses all over the walls no hot water no ironing board.... computer systems down check in was a nightmare also got eaten up by mosquitoes waiting to be checked in. Staff was marginally pleasant would not recommend staying here.
The hotel was absolutely amazing! The food on the other hand was not excellent, but it wasn't disgusting either.
This motel had wonder staff from the front desk to the maid service ! The food was excellent So much to choose from! There were many activities to choose from, pools, beach areas, and fun shows in the evenings. We had a great time!
The food was very good, rooms and view were excellent. The only complaint is the music went on a bit later in the night. Not terrible, but since I was there for business, I didn't get as much sleep as I would have liked.
Loved the restaurants and food..staff was excellent and very friendly.. hotel was very clean. I am very happy we chose the Hyatt Ziva. We can't wait to get back.
All good we had Jacuzzi on the deck oceanfront.only way to stay.oceanview not good spend the extra special restaurant over rated still perfect but buffet has everything plus some.room service none.like 3 things u can order.hot tub in living room never use cause we had jacuzzi on patio deck.party life ends @11 after that nothing really to do on resort. Do ur research on jamaica history its so sad the country get rob left and right.first off I went to the mountains not just the resort to see for my self.no WATER no where dought over 2 years .mean while hotels and resorts dont pay taxes the airports are run by Canada. So jamaica get no money for resorts or hotels and no money from airports the 2 most major things they have to offer they get cut out...America robs them of they red clay dirt you should see the land where they dug out the clay dirt all over the mountains. (To make cars and metals with the dirt) All they want you to see is the resorts and water...
Everything picky eatter BUT i enjoyed the food nice restaurants
Sleeping in hammocks poolside, food, bartenders, lifeguards, everyone was extremely friendly & helpful. No partition between shower/wash basins & sleeping quarters (friends trip).
