We have been here a little over 24 hours and are realizing this is one of the most expensive vacation mistakes we have ever made. All-inclusive is an inaccurate description. We can’t get into restaurants (they are booked) and room service is a disaster - breakfast and dinner we did not get a full meal and over hour and a half each time. Tonight we ordered steak… and got a salad and shrimp cocktail. That’s all. We are now eating peanut butter crackers and saltines we brought from home. BYOF because you can’t leave to get anything and there is no Door Dash. Can’t wait to get home. Read less

We just left Iberostar Grand Rose Hall after a one-week trip. This was an amazing experience. This truly was a fantastic trip! The Grounds: This resort size was perfect. A short walk brought you from beach, to pool, and to lobby. The reef kept the water calm and the infinity pools were stunning. The people- wonderful! They consistently went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and at home. Every morning we looked forward to speaking with Letherese at the bakery in the buffet. Her smile and warmth set the tone for a great day. Entertainment staff were excellent (Bubbles and Smiley), and the bartenders were incredible (Jerry and Keon). The butler team was very attentive (Terrence, Rohan, and Terrilyn) and gave the right amount of attention. The food. Incredible. Honestly top notch for an all-inclusive. We did one tour (Dunn River Falls) and had a blast. Highly recommend! This was our first trip to the Caribbean since March 2020 and it was great to be back. Iberostar made sure we felt safe, comfortable, and relaxed. Read less

My boyfriend, son, his girlfriend & I visited Jamaica (my 6th time) from May 9th to the 15th. Loved, loved, loved this resort -1st time staying there. The resort is clean, food great, entertainment terrific (Michael Jackson show is a must see), staff THE best & the most well-run, top notch hotel I’ve ever visited!!! To mention a few of the staff members who made us feel like family: the pool bar crew (Keon, Omar, Bokeen & Karessa); the food crew (LaTheresa, Pete, Warren & Damien); Ackeem, the pool guy ; Zikawi, our night butler & Carl, our bell guy. I know that I am forgetting many people & for that I apologize. All in all, a truly memorable, wonderful experience for my family & I! Read less

This was our first trip to Jamaica Iberostar Grand and we enjoyed the entertainment at night as well as the food chooses, the pools,and beaches which didn't have seaweed like DR and Cancun. Our butler Shane was exceptional and provided everything we needed even before we asked. The rooms could be updated and the step down took some getting use too.

Sandals Negril or Iberostar Grand Rose Hall. Prior to booking this year’s vacation, I searched the internet for comparisons of these two properties. Not finding many, i will try to provide an accurate and non-biased one based on this vacation. So far we have completed our first 4 days at Sandals Negril, plus our first night at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall. Sandals is no comparison to the high standards and level of service we’ve previously experienced, and our continuing to experience at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall. As we were waiting for our transfer to IGRH for the next 10 days of our anniversary vacation….we confirmed how we were really looking forward to returning to IGRH. Our experience at Sandals was not horrible, just ok. Level of service, quality and selection of food, room including cleaning and minibar, entertainment, beach were all acceptable. But when comparing cost per day, our previous experiences, and this experience so far at IGRH have unfortunately set the bar too high for Sandals to reach. Our room at Sandals was the Paradise Honeymoon Beachfront Walkout Club Level. Our room at IGRH is an oceanfront. Our TA requested a specific room at IGRH and we received it. This was our first visit to the Sandals brand and based on this experience we will probably not return. Once our next stage of vacation at IGRH is complete I will revisit my review for an up to date comparison. I gave three star to Sandals as 3 1/2 is not an option. Some aspects were 4 star, but some were less than 3. Read less
