"Can't wait to go back"

All the staff at the resort are friendly, work extremely hard and nothing is too much trouble. We were in Block 6 - right by a quiet part of the beach where there was always plenty of free sun loungers. There was plenty of choice at the buffet and if we were unable to get a booking for one of the restaurants on the night, were able to book for the following.

My favourite was the Sea Breeze for West Indian food and also the outside Italian restaurant as we were able to watch the evening entertainment from here. If you want to get out of the resort for a bit, a free minibus will take you to Rose Hall shopping centre where you can by gifts - it's about 10 minutes drive away. Also, there are some shops opposite the hotel including a small bar and a supermarket. You will get asked by the locals to have a look at what they are selling but if you don't fancy it, simply say "no thanks" and carry on walking. The supermarket was far cheaper than the shop in the hotel as we bought our alcohol for our parents there and also insect repellant, sweets and other stuff etc.

We went to Margarittavile on the hipstrip a few times and also the Pier 1 nightclub as a free minibus will take you and bring you back. Entrance to Margarittaville is free and Thursday is by far the best night as it's ladies night. Through the resort, we booked Dunns River, a trip to Negril and Rick's Cafe which were all very reasonably priced. We also visited Down Town Montego Bay but beware as you will be targeted by the locals if they spot your wristband from the hotel. Usually something along the lines of "don't you remember me from the hotel - I work in the kitchen?" They will then use this to gain your trust and ask you for money when, in reality, they are trying their luck and don't work for the hotel at all.

We made the most of this holiday with a good mix of excursions, clubbing and simply chilling out on the resort but most of all, we met some great people out there including the hotel staff which ultimately made this an amazing holiday!!

    What are the rooms like? Can you/did you eat at the hotel?
  • Soho_Black published 06/04/2013
    As Bollinger mentioned, this is a little too general to be an entirely successful review of one particular hotel.

    Sorry but this is more about Montego Bay in general than it is about the Holiday Inn. You need to write more about the hotel/resort here.
