I stayed at Gardinia after the management at Travellers Beach refused to honor my confirmed booking. I had done my research and read all the available reviews, but I've found not to always trust what others say. The room I stayed in was fine, not fancy but clean, had cable, working a.c. etc. Beds were very comfortable. I spoke with...

I would not rate this facility Excellent but for goodness sake it is very good compared to a similar facility in the same neighbourhood. The comparison were based on quality/friendliness of staff, cost, environment and value for money. I stayed at the facility for four nights and another friend stayed for seven nights without regrets. Although not everything is fantastic...

As a native Jamaican frequently returns to spend time with my husband and family, I am disappointed at this sad mistake of a "resort". I have stayed at 4-5 star resorts and low end resorts so I know the range I am dealing with. The room we stayed in was sparse at best. It looks like they took some old...

Most Jamaican hotels are not that great, but this one takes the cake! Very unpleasant and unprofessional staff. If you run into any issues the'll likely screw you over. The manager is very hard to deal with as well. On top of the price indicated in booking system they charge extra 20% taxes and 5% more if you pay credit...

I booked this hotel to stay from aug 1-6. The place is beautiful and the breakfast is delicious. Since myself & Partner booked and stayed at this resort last minute and its peak season because of jamaica independence we knew it was not going to cheap but i did not expect to pay 160usd per night for a room that...

In Jamaica, you definitely get what you pay for, and that is not completely a bad thing. Lately when I visit Negril, I am on a budget and have been searching for hotels for under $50 a night. Thus far I've stayed at Pure Gardens, Sun Beach, Paul's Apartments and now Gardenia Resort. I want to review each one on...

The staff is just not helpful and incompetent except the maids which are always smiling and provide a good service. The resort itself is not very fresh and old but very intimate, in the jungle side and it is very relaxing, just in the front of Negril Beach.

My second stay at Gardenia resort was the best yet. Richard and his staff take great pride in making sure your stay is acceptable for you. The rooms located in the rear of property are the best choice well suited for the most relaxing and quiet. Some rooms are condos and others are standard rooms that are excellent for my...
