We had an amazing time at the Rose Hall Beach! The resort is clean, wonderful and well designed for families. The beach is not crowded and the water us beautiful. The food on the beach was so good. The jerk chicken. festival, and coco bread was our favorite there. We are club members, so our elevated experience was no less than perfect. Kerry was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed during the first part of our stay. Then Susana took over and she was just as great! We LOVED Leroy, Kacia, and Anecia at the Club Members beach area. They were so sweet and gracious. The food at the Smokehouse was outstanding! My favorite dinner while here. The hibachi restaurant was also great! My family and friends preferred that one over the smokehouse because it was inside instead of open air at the smokehouse. The star club was also great for the kids. Lots of activities for them! Overall, we had an amazing stay! Can't wait to come back. Read less

the hotel isn't anything crazy this was my second time going and the hotel got worse. the first time me and my family went was before covid and it was absolutely amazing. we just went back in June of 2024 and it wasn't the best. the entertainment is boring and the workers come around begging you to write a review on the hotel. the food isn't the best either they don't have a great selection of food. for the drinks once the workers see what you like to drink and you order it a lot they tend to hide the bottle from you. if ur looking for a simple "resort" then this is the place. there are a bunch of people on the bottom of the beach trying to hustle money to sell you weed. the men workers try to talk to the women out there for there lustfulness pleasures. they give them there numbers and stalk them around the hotel to wait till there alone and approach them One of the most significant drawbacks of the Iberostar Rose Hall Resort is its poor customer service. Guests have reported instances of rude and unhelpful staff members who seem disinterested in addressing guests’ concerns or providing quality service. From check-in to dining experiences, the lack of attentiveness and professionalism from the staff can greatly impact the overall guest experience negatively. Another common complaint about Iberostar Rose Hall Resort is the subpar quality of its dining options. Guests have expressed dissatisfaction with the limited variety and quality of food served at the on-site restaurants. Reports of bland dishes, undercooked meals, and long wait times for service have left many guests feeling unsatisfied with their culinary experiences during their stay. In conclusion, Iberostar Rose Hall Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, receives a poor review due to its shortcomings in customer service, maintenance issues, dining options, and overall lackluster amenities. For travelers seeking a truly luxurious and enjoyable experience, this hotel may not live up to expectations. Read less
