The staff is very nice and helpful.. Some rooms are four walls and 2 beds. We moved to a kitchenette after the first day.I called hotel direct and talked them down and paid in Jamaican when I got there. The pool was OK. and a little pool in the back and restaurant was never busy. The kitchenette was bigger and...

This is a great hotel to stay at if you just need a basic clean place to stay. The airconditioning works great. They have a pool and great breakfast in the morning was included when I stayed there. It is right across the street from the beach. litterally a 30 second walk. There is also a convenience store right beside...

The staff was attentive or shall i say accommodating to our every need, which made our stay a pleasant one. Our room was clean with plenty of hot water. Flat screen TV, if you have time to watch it.

Our stay at the Gardenia Resort was great! This is a small bed and breakfast and perfect if you are a budget traveler. The room was nice and big and air conditioned, with an excellent view of the garden, which was very pretty. The staff was friendly and helpful, although we were only there to sleep, as we spent most...

Upon arrival at Gardenia, the property was very quiet so much so that we saw no one at the front to check us in. Once the lady at the front desk came back from wherever she was she was not...

I spent one night at this hole in the wall and wanted to leave the minute I walked into the room. U really get what you pay for, I booked the room because of the cheap rate. This place is not suitable for a vacation stay this is for one night stands/hook ups only. I asked for a king bed...

The Gardenia exceeded every one of my expectations for a my first time at a smaller, non-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. The friendliness of the staff was both welcoming and comforting throughout our stay, and they work hard to keep the place pretty immaculate. A few tips for visitors, especially since we really didn't spend much time in our room:...

Good spot in Negril though slightly too far south to walk to e.g. Bourbon Beach. My bedspread had a blood stain on it (not huge but just not what you want to find) but was changed immediately when I mentioned it. The door didnt lock very well at all and I would be concerned about how easy it would be...

Had a blast. Coffee and breakfast by pool every morning. Across street from beach. Walking distance to many good times. Lots of music. Everyone at hotel did exceptional job. Maid service every day. I would go back anytime.
