          The location was wonderful: directly on the beach, no touristic resorts, beuatiful nature and friendly staff.

          The hotel is close to pelican bar. Maybe 10 min ride by boat. We had asked for a boat which came pretty soon by "Jamaica" standards. Although we wanted to have grilled fish and lobster at the pelican bar and asked the management to make arrangements. When we got on the boat we were made a stop on the way and were forced to buy not so good food on shore. The guy selling us the barely eatable lunch told us it was the "procedure". That us to buy food on the shore and take to pelican bar, but when we got there, people were clearly ordering fresh food there. We definitely got taken advantage of by the person who made the arrangements....

          Complimentary breakfast was a joke. Staff were distant. We left some money for the housekeepers on the table and before we checked out someone had come in our room and tool the cash. Hopefully it was the maids and not the " management " staff that were suspiciously bossing them around. Overall it was a strange vibe at the place. We did not get a room with a hammock and inside smelled like cleaning solution. I guess the btlatheooms were just cleaned before arrival. Couldn't get a key that worked for the safe in our room. We paid $100 for one night. And you get what you pay for.... A place to sleep.

          The staff were very friendly and accommodating! The view and entrance onto the beautiful beach was a treat! The decor outside was beautiful and created a very peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. Rooms were spacious and clean.

          The food menu was lovely but they had very few ingredients on the list!!!

          Friendly staff, excellent location with a stunning view over the ocean.

          Basic rooms, mediocre menu

          The location and the peaceful atmosphere. The assistance for booking some trips to places around Blackriver.

          The service of the restaurant. They were not able to serve what you can expect from a Hotels restaurant like a vairiaty of bevereges or e.i. a choice of fruits or other simple small meals. Then the whole Hotel needs to be fixed, it seemed to me like a ruin in some certain parts. My room contained a broken watch on the Wall and there was no possibility of a tea/coffee heater as they provide in the Website. The Price of 100$ per night is far to high. I am an experienced traveller in Jamaica, I know what you can expect so I would definitely not recommend this place to any other guests.
