The hotel

A large resort on its own private peninsula with over 1,800 ft of white sand beach, the all Sunscape Splash Montego Bay has a fantastic range of activities available for everyone to enjoy an Unlimited-Fun® getaway. Families will particularly appreciate The Explorer's Club, for kids aged 3-12 years, and the Core Zone Teens Club with pool tables, video games and a host of activities. Both facilities are located in the Pirates’ Paradise Waterpark with two giant slides, Blackbeard’s Lazy River and a Pirates ship! While the kids are enjoying themselves, you can sneak off to the spa for a relaxing treatment. Remember though, you are not just limited to the extensive list of on-site activities, as the Sunscape Montego Bay Jamaica is ideally located within reach of several local points of interest including Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove and five unique golf courses for the golfing enthusiasts amongst you. With five restaurants to choose from you can savour a variety of international cuisine and come dark, venture to one of five bars and kick back in true Jamaican style, while listening to some authentic live music, sipping on a refreshing cocktail — perfect! Whatsmore, Sun Club Guests have access to two additional restaurants and bars, so treat yourself to an upgraded package for exclusive benefits and tuck into breakfast at the Terrace Restaurant or for dinner, feast upon some Italian cuisine at Da Mario.

Spent the Sumfest weekend with my family and was a little disappointed by the appearance of the room. The hotel has possibilities but needs to be refurbished. There needs to be an available food source between the hours that the buffet is closed. We learnt this the hard way as upon our arrival from the festival, it was too early for breakfast....6am, we took a nap and was up by 11am, woke up starving and were disappointed to find nothing available until 12:30...lunch time!

This is a good standard family friendly hotel in Montego Bay. We travelled with our 18 and 21 year old daughters and had two adjoining rooms.

This is a good standard family friendly hotel in Montego Bay. We travelled with our 18 and 21 year old daughters and had two adjoining rooms. We were given a “complimentary” upgrade to seaview rooms on arrival . The staff at the resort are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated but very comfortable beds, good quiet air conditioning and a good shower. The one bad thing was the very loud fire alarm was set off on at least 10 days very early in the morning. The food in the buffet and al a carte restaurants was well cooked but repetitive. The menus in the al a carte did not change in the two weeks. The omelette chef, pasta chef and the wrap maker were nice additions in the buffet . The bars provided good choices of cocktails and the entertainment staff put on a good variety of activities with numerous opportunities to win bottles of rum and other prizes. The free kayaks were fun and the stunning resort beach was great for snorkelling with lots of fish in crystal clear warm water. A llack of air conditioning in some of the restaurants making dining uncomfortable on some evenings and some equipment available is rather tired and really needs replacing. The staff do however do a good job and the resort is kept very clean and tidy . The hotel is pretty close to the Hip strip , shops are VERY pushy and you need to be quite confident to avoid getting intimidated to buy stuff you don’t want. We would recommend the excursions to Dunn’s river falls and the Luminous lagoon. Read less
