WoWed me

The trip was everything. On point i was skeptical at first cooking with cheap Caribbean because its online. It was amazing everything that I was told. It was perfect. It was a gift to my boyfriend his first time going to Caribbean he was in love as well. Only one issue I had the hotel was closing down the day of departure for heavy renovations. That being said it was depressing to hear people we met were going to lose their jobs, they kept such great spirit. The non motorized sports and motorized sports were taken away. So that option was bo good the entire stay. And lastly the last day as we were waiting to leave the contractors start taking things closing the bars down. It was a horrible feeling like we were getting thrown out. It was heartbreaking as it was. Overall that place was so amazing. I just wish that was told to me when U booked. I had my heart set on some water sports and I would if loved to have been prepared about the hotel closing. 5 stars: palm trees

Worst service and infested with roaches and mold

First off on arrival and check in you literally have to ask for directions and someone to help with bags to your rooms. You have to walk miles before you get to the nearest elevator which seems like a death trap itself. The rooms are terrible to say the least. The bath tubs are in poor condition. The idea of taking a shower seems like a bad one and would have the reverse effect. Comfort in the room is non existent so if you are looking to relax and watch something this is definitely not the place for you. It’s like staying in a motel from the 1970’s. I was really disappointed in the entire service. The first room I was assigned even had cockroaches in it and when I raised the issue to the front desk all they would say is they would send someone to clean which never happened until I followed up several times. There is mold everywhere you look and the whole time we stayed there was construction day and night. I would not recommend this place especially if you seek value for your money. It seems as though they are running a scam operation and the victims are the guests.

Terrible from start to end:

I’d be lying if I said I had a great time. The resort was ok. I overpaid for a resort where I paid two thousand dollars to sleep next to construction. I booked a deluxe room and instead I was put in standard room that was not close to whatever was advertised. My room was not ready when I got there. They moved me to another room where I found cockroaches and I pictures to prove it. Even after I asked why the resort simply told me to ask my booking agent. I asked the agent who offered to talk to a manger but I was dismissed: with the line of “they are overbooked and have nothing to offer or move me to” No matter how much I complained no one listened to me. I’m here to advise anyone not to be fooled. I called cheap Caribbean and I have not gotten a response. They haven’t even taken the time to get back after I complained and even left messages. I’d like to be reimbursed since I will NEVER book with cheap Caribbean. Also I have to say some of the staff at the hotel were rude and lacked the

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

There's Red Stripe Beer in the fridge. Every. Day.

The stress-ousting massages and treatments at the Renova Spa. Swoon.

The Jerk Chicken Hut on the beach. You'll be jammin' here ofter. Probably daily.

Unlimited access to Splash Water World.

The epic snorkeling that's right on the beach. Brightly colored fish will make your underwater pics dazzle.

Dunn's River Falls and swimming with the dolphins - close by and always touristy fun.

 

What We'd Change

The drive to the resort will take about an hour, but once you step foot onto the resort grounds, you'll be in love.

 

Why You Should Go

You can get a free introductory to scuba lesson in the pool. Dive in!

There are water sports out the wazoo - windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling.

On land, you can play volleyball or take an aerobics class.

The entertainment team blows it out, starting with the nightly reggae, steel drums & chill beats.

The botanical gardens of Canbrook aren't your average "flower forest." It's uber lush.
