The hotel is in need of a major makeover, some rooms are being upgraded. Food was of a medium standard,the biggest issue being food leaving kitchen hot, but due to the air-con got cold very quickly. On the upside the bar staff were brilliant. Restaurant staff some were brilliant, others not that good. I think my biggest disappointment was the cleaner, who managed to clean the room most days within 10 minutes, and was quite rude on some occasions. The highlight for me was the trip to Dolphin Cove, and spending many hours with hubby in the sea at your hotel watching the Pelicans diving for fish. The staff at Jerk cafe were fab, also the lifeguards who always passed time of day, and entertained us with local good natured extremely friendly banter. All over I believe the hotel could benefit if the management interacted more with their guest, this is also the first hotel we have been to where we have not filled in a questionnaire on our departure.

Our room was nice and spacious bu what we enjoyed most was the beach. Although it was windy and the sea was choppy the beach was beautiful and relaxing. Evening entertainment was really enjoyable and food was good. We had a fun relaxing weekend.

We rebooked with the Holiday Inn Montego Bay Resort since we thoroughly enjoyed our stay last January. We had a fantastic time meeting up with friends and meeting new people. I will say there seemed to be a shift in how welcoming and friendly the staff was this January in comparison to last year. Management may want to work with their staff regarding people skills. I want to give a shout out to our housekeeper for the 9 nights we were there. Julecion Williams was an absolute dream. She took such special care preparing our room each day. Always spotless and inviting. Thank you Julecion for taking such good care of us. Also, my husband is a Spire Elite member of Holiday Inn and we feel a little more attention in regards to upgrades and rewarding his status would be appreciated. All in all, we love this resort and will return. Read less

Good day Mr. Clark, I just returned from an overnight (Jan 17th) trip to Montego Bay from Miami volunteering to mentor and coach a group of young people from Flower Hill. I was only able to spend a night in Jamaica due to a packed travel and business schedule back home. I typically stay at Holiday Inn or Half Moon because of proximity to Flower Hill through Coral Gardens. I want to share with you that this trip caused me to be amazed at the improved high quality of service, helpfulness of the staff and level of enthusiasm to exceed expectations. As a former corporate training & development leader at Marriot Vacations Worldwide, I am always sensitive to quality service and employee engagement. Whatever you and your leadership team are doing to develop this quality service culture, continue to do so. Kudos to you and your team! Best regards, Chris Read less
