Nice beach here and since we are locals. We had our family over and they had no issues with this. We spent a few days here visiting with family then upgraded to the couples hotel. The beach is lovely. The rooms are clean. I recommend the ground floor rooms because it walks right out to the beach. There are no...

I'm not a person that depends on all inclusive big resorts... I actually like the more rustic authentic feel of jamaica as long as Its very clean, has hospitable service, great views, large beds/rooms,great value and it had that and more! The only downfall for most would be the lack of modern decor but who actually stays inside and looks...

Definitely not one of the better hotels to stay at. It's budget friendly, the rooms were clean with a glass door leading out to a small strip of beach. The road leading down to the hotel felt a little unsafe but its actually a rafting area. There is no formal parking if you have a car. You are outside the...

GOOD- right on the beach. All rooms face the water and have table and chairs on the outside patio. Minimum breakfast (toast, juice, coffee). Price was reasonable ($88). Away from the downtown area. ANNOYING- very hard to find. instructions were not that good. Did a bunch of driving around until we found it. UGLY- had to park out in front...

I will never recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. The only thing that was good about Crystal Ripple was the beach and the view from the balconies. My fiance and i felt the need to get away from Kingston or a few days to relax and we ended up getting our vehicle stolen directly in front of the always...

I booked this hotel through Expedia and the listing clearly stated it is beachfront property with a restaurant on site. Although I knew I was taking a risk, I still booked it. It turns out that there is NO restaurant on site. The housekeeper can cook a meal in the kitchen if you order it at least 24 hours in...

The staff here is very accommodating, but the appearance of this hotel is lacking it makes you feel so depressed. The hotel looks like run down and what is the word ghetto. I wouldn't waste my money to stay here ever again.

What a gem of a hotel! The room was perfectly adequate though the showers were irregular sometimes. Each room overlooks the beach and the beach and sea, sometimes, comes right up to the building. The little bay has trees as a back round and looks like Treasure Island. While the hotel is north facing, the pier allows sunbathing all day...

Picked it because it was cheaper than most hotels in the area over the New Year. Great views from our room and right on the water. The staff was GREAT, , helped us a lot and the Maintenance guy would set our chairs out on the beach every morning where ever we wanted them. Best hotel staff i had in...

“All the rooms are the same. We stayed in two different rooms on the second floor. Stairs only in case this is a problem, go for a room on bottom floor”

“I was in room 206. I couldn't walk directly onto the beach but had a beautiful view of the sea and bay. As for Wifi, I solved the lack of signal by holding my iphone out over the balcony. This meant i could send and receive emails rather than going down to the breakfast room.”
