Overview

All guests enjoy unlimited meals and drinks at 10 restaurants and four bars
Travelers have mixed feelings about resort's accommodations
Situated on Jamaica's northern shore in Runaway Bay, this adults-only, all-inclusive resort receives praise for its friendly staff, ample amenities and proximity to the shoreline. Each of the suites is outfitted with a balcony or terrace, dual sinks, a flat-screen TV and a stocked minibar. However, past guests offer conflicting opinions about the property's accommodations: Some loved the beautiful and spacious suites, while others said they encountered malfunctioning equipment and hit-or-miss housekeeping. When you're not relaxing in your digs, make the most of the resort's plentiful offerings. The property boasts three free-form pools, a spa with an additional pool and plenty of free nonmotorized water sports equipment. But remember, complimentary water sports activities are only free for one hour per day. When you've worked up an appetite, head to one of 10 on-site restaurants. Dining options range from three international buffets to seven a la carte venues that serve Asian, Brazilian, Italian, Japanese, Caribbean and steakhouse dishes. You can also quench your thirst at four watering holes, including a swim-up bar.
