If you're looking for a relaxing getaway at an all-inclusive with no beach just a cliffside (i.e. no panhandlers) this is the place for you. View is beautiful, staff is attentive but not overbarring and food is wonderful (if you enjoy fish, chicken and standard American breakfasts). Did not particularly like that tipping was allowed at an all-inclusive, stressed me out a bit since I didn't know what to tip. But since the exchange rate was 85 Jamaican Dollar to 1 USD, I think anything is appreciated. We tipped the individuals that helped us on a daily basis near the end and then left a pool tip on the credit card at check out. I only left the resort one day to take a sunset "booze cruise", it was a good time and we snorkeled for 25 minutes. Rick's Cafe is only about 0.25 miles away so it's walkable, but I wouldn't suggest walking too much further. Things we learned...spring for the transportation to & from the airport thru The Caves (call ahead). It costs a little more, but is a direct shot to/from the airport. Otherwise you make stops at many other resorts and it takes 2 hrs, versus about 1.25 hrs direct. Get the cave hot tub at sunset, not moon light. You can't see anything for the moon, but sunset would be beautiful. You can buy all of the souveneirs you want at the airport, may be a little more expensive but much less hassle. Be prepared to be propositions for various "things," not at the resort, but anytime you leave. Finally, make sure you have a Dark & Stormy!

This hotel is not your fancy tv advertised resorts but it is comfortable, clean and the staff very friendly. We went all inclusive and the food was local cuisine and tasty. Breakfast was usually a bust unless you arrived early because things were placed in warmers and late breakfast resulted in "novelty eggs". Not much activity to do at the resort except hang out at the scenic bar and visit with other guests. The pool was clean and well maintained. Swimming/snorkeling off the cliffs was beautiful. I definitely would stay cliff side versus "garden side". Also due to high humidity I would opt for a room with air conditioning. The desk staff can help with scheduling any tours you would like. The resort is somewhat gated and there is a security guard late at night. Although the resort does not have internet access there is an internet cafe across the street. There is a daily shuttle to the sister resort on the beach and that area is quite pleasant and close to duty free shopping. I would recommend this resort for those that are budget conscious and do not require the "finer" things.

Knowing how little I paid, I was a little skeptical about this resort before our trip. Upon arrival I was happy to see that the resort looked just like the pictures, no surprises. The hotel staff was super friendly and accomodating. The rooms were basic, nothing special. Ants on the bathroom floor, but not a big deal. The location is tucked away so you're not on the cliffs or beach. I could imagine it being boring if you plan to spend a lot of time at the resort, although they've got a pool, there's not much to do. We were there for a friend's wedding, so we spent a lot of time at their resort which was on the cliff side and was gorgeous. We didn't spend a lot of time at the Oasis, so for us it was perfect, just a clean place to lay our heads. Great food in the restaurant, excellent jerk pork, however food takes a long time.

The Caribbean Sunset Resort is located in up the hill nearly 800 yards from the roundabout, it is in prime location to the bank, Burger King, super market, and several Jamaican apparel beach wear shops. The resort is gated with and guard on duty and locals will not bother entering the resort if you need a break from being accosted into buying things. The resort is higher in elevation so you get a pretty good view of the happenings on the street though far enough away and hidden by palms to feel like you’re on top of everything. The pool is a nice retreat from the mid day sun and quite refreshing at night I did see them treat the pool every day of my stay and despite the music from a local night club (Saturday nights are especially loud bring ear plugs life saver) the resort is quiet and safe at night. My room was cleaned on a daily basis I didn’t have to worry about the safety of my valuables, safes are provided in the rooms for three dollars a day keys are at the front desk and if there no safe in the room there are safes that stay at the front desk area for rental. My room was a single with a King sized bed it had very nice furniture in it, a television, ceiling fan, AC, bathroom, and private balcony. There was a bit of a bug issue I had mosquitoes which can be remedied if you keep the curtains closed during the day and shutters closed. I didn’t order any food from room service I did however purchase beer from the bar which was ice cold and a “fair” bar price in Jamaica

Everything was as we expected after reading multiple reviews. This ws not a fancy resort but it was quiet, relaxing and just what we needed. All the staff were wonderful and we had an extremely pleasant stay. The food was excellent, the rooms clean and we know we want to return.
