All-inclusive resort with ample children's amenities, including a water park and kids and teens clubs
Dated, tiny rooms, according to previous guests
This all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, is geared toward families looking to kick back in the sun with plentiful on-site amenities within easy reach. Parents can relax knowing their kids are being supervised while they take advantage of the kids and teens clubs. Or, families can bond while enjoying the property's water park, lazy river, beach volleyball court, water sports equipment rentals and more. And for adults, the resort offers personalized fitness instruction, cooking classes, scuba lessons and performances held in an open-air theater. Guests are especially complimentary of the attentive staff and the resort's recreational offerings; however, some are critical of the accommodations, noting that they are small, lack adequate amenities and appear a bit worn. Still, all rooms and suites offer stocked minibars, rain showers, Bluetooth audio stations, free Wi-Fi access, satellite TVs and private balconies or terraces. When dinnertime rolls around, travelers can choose to grab drinks or a meal at one of the resort's five bars, nine restaurants and two grab-and-go eateries. Cuisine options range from an international buffet to a steakhouse to an Asian-inspired restaurant with teppanyaki grills.
