This is my go-to hotel. But they dropped the ball on this one, very poor communication. If they told us while making reservations that more than half the facilities are closed, we’d make a better decision. Some changes they do not communicate with you: 1 - there is no such thing as a buffet. You have to get seated and they take your order.… Read more
This is my go-to hotel. But they dropped the ball on this one, very poor communication. If they told us while making reservations that more than half the facilities are closed, we’d make a better decision. Some changes they do not communicate with you: 1 - there is no such thing as a buffet. You have to get seated and they take your order. There’s not much on the menu to chose from. When asked, they said it’s a cost saving tactic and if they get enough people, they’ll have a buffet. 2 - restaurants are closed. No Italian, Japanese, etc. 3 - spa is closed. 4 - some pools are closed. 5 - no water sports (except canoeing) 6 - clubs/lounges closed. Now I don’t mind that they do these things but by refusing to communicate these things with customers, either through reservations or otherwise, their mode of operations come of as a scam and I will no longer support this hotel. Get a communications manager or change the current one, they’re doing a very poor job. Read less

So glad I decided to take this trip during the world's crisis. I've traveled to Jamaica over 20 times and this by far has been one of my best trips. It's the best because I was able to witness first hand the safe guards put in place for my travel and got some of the best rest being here. This trip showed me how resilient the people of Jamaica are, especially the staff at this beautiful resort. It's not a mistake Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort won TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award for 2020 during covid-19. It's awesome to see how the staff is ensuring our stay here remains entertaining and safe. If you're looking for a great vacation with a reasonable budget (family, solo or lovers), I highly recommend this resort. I'm leaving feeling refreshed and renewed, just what I needed! 💖💖💖🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲 Read less

Drinks were good but not top shelf which was ok because I brought my own! Entertainment was really good, they worked hard to get the guests involved… Read more
This hotel was very clean and practicing social distancing and mask-wearing throughout the property the staff and guests were in compliance. Food was just ok very limited menu and the food was bland. Drinks were good but not top shelf which was ok because I brought my own! Entertainment was really good, they worked hard to get the guests involved and participate in the activities. The internet here is awful and I mean complete trash! Called front desk to see if she could help and of course, the answer was no IT left for the day lol! I.T you mean maintenance which I found to be a lie after running into the guy 5 min later as he was coming from another building. Some of us work in hotels and not the procedure, not all tourists are dumb. Just hate being lied to about a router being reset! Front desk staff not friendly or helpful... no type of Intineary about meal activities nothing just here is your key and find your way! you would think that since most things were not as advertised they would be more communicative about the is available instead of you just walking around looking at all the closed places that were included with room!
