Inhospitable Security Guard

Jun 14th, 2019

When we visited, the compound was undergoing renovations, and on arrival to our room, we noticed that a television was not present, the lady at the front desk was quite pleasant and assured us that one would be brought to our room later by a security guard. Later that night when we were leaving the property, still wondering where the TV was, we spoke with the security guard at the gate who quite frankly told us that he knew nothing of this arrangement and when prompted for a telephone number of a supervisor, refused to provide us with any contact information for someone who could help. He eventually agreed to call the lady at the front desk and we left to go to dinner. On returning, we asked about the situation and nothing had changed. After going back and forth, he finally agreed to call the lady from the front desk and we spoke to her. We heard her ask him to get the key to the storage room from the office and he outright refused. It was a convenient place to stay while in Negril, but the attitude of one person has soured the entire experience. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Good property

Apr 25th, 2019

We stayed here last minute because we hated our hotel that we booked. It was a great improvement from the other hotel. clean hotel, big property and the hot water pressure was very strong. We pretty much only slept here but it was great for what we needed. Chris-ann was amazing all the time. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

OK HOTEL FOR A SHORT STAY

Feb 21st, 2019

Booked this hotel last minute as the usual hotel was already fully booked for our dates. On the whole it was ok for a short stay but I would not recommend it for a long stay. The property is very large but the grounds and some areas could do with some updating ..eg old furniture and rubbish in full view of the walkways. The room faced the pool and was very basic but clean, it could be quite noisy as it was opposite the bar area it did not have a balcony so I think we were in the cheapest room on the complex. Check in was ok however the room did not have a fridge which was clearly advertised as part of the facilities when we booked. After some confusion the staff did their best to rectify the situation by offering to put our items in the fridge in the bar until the next day when a fridge would be available. On the whole it was a pleasant stay but we did not find it relaxing , it is a budget complex but by no means the worst. The pool was a good size, location was good and the beach was right across the road so that was the positives. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Location, location and location

Feb 2nd, 2019

Formerly known as Gardenia Resort now managed with 4 other resorts as part of Bourbon Street Hotels / Resorts. Now called "The Pure Oasis" this place has the location that you want. Walk across the street to all the action of Negril's famous Seven Mile Beach. Its located on Norman Manley Boulevard where there are many shops and restaurants to walk to. Many of the suites have kitchenettes in the rooms so be sure to clarify what you're paying for. The rooms are each different so it can be a little tricky getting a nice one. Don't be scared to room shop when you arrive. The staff are excellent and personable. The place is older but for the most part pretty clean. Its basic accommodation for a pretty good price especially considering what people are paying for across the street at the all inclusive hotels like Couples or Beaches. This place is a nice mix of local Jamaicans, expats and tourists from all over. This is the real Jamaica. Should you be lucky enough to get a suite with a kitchenette be sure to support the local merchants and nearby vegetable fruit sellers. There is no welfare / social assistance system in Jamaica so if they don't make money they don't eat. Its as simple as that. One such person is the Rasta Man called Bobo – right next door to the Public House Restaurant. He's a kind hearted soul that won't overcharge you cause you're a tourist. Often times he has rare fruits that aren't found in stores like the June Plum. We'd never had one and its amazing. Like a cross between a Mango and a pineapple. Wow. He gave us all sorts of samples to try. Bobo also will make sure you're getting nice ripe ready to eat fruit. We often eat salads and Bobo will bring in lettuce, tomatoes and the like. We bought from other vendors and he was the best for quality produce. Get him to cut a fresh coconut for you. Can't say enough good about this man. Lastly there's even a convenience store nearby called Bev's. They've got everything you need at pretty good prices. Everything you need is within walking distance. Note: Their website seems to be wonky. Last time I looked it showed no vacancies regardless of time of year Would probably best to email them. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
