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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

I spent the last 3 nights in Jamaica here after being on the road for 5 days. I was really pleased with this site and would definitely go back. The staff was very responsive and sweet.

Glad that you enjoy yourself at Gardenia and both Manager and staff was grateful that you took the time to spend your vacation with us and hope to see you again.

I'd like to think I am a very reasonable person. I am by no means picky. I frequent Jamaica often, 2-4 times a year and have stayed in accommodations from 4&5 stars to rooms with no TV or internet and in the middle of nowhere.
