oh my, if you have never been to jamaica i highly recommend you go! there are a few things i would have liked the reviews to tell me (or make more clear) so i will do that.
garden view actually means across the road.
the staff at the hotel was great! especially to note michael, beach security. he was the guy who would get your beach chairs and what your items while you weren't there. our housekeeper was martha, she was also great. out of all the places we went the staff at the hotel were by far the friendliest.
it was a great location for things like restaurants, shopping (the time square duty free mall is literally next door), street food vendors and the mini mart.
the beach was very clean as was the water. there was access to all sorts of water activities or boat tours (highly recommend orrick and captain clarke).
