This place needs to be upgraded 😒.The rooms outdated. The bathrooms/poolside, conference room. Please do not expect much from this place. If you need any additional beside what us offer for breakfast you will be paying. The concierge some were friendly.

Cardiff Hall Hotel is a training hotel which trains young and mature in The Hospitality Industry. The view in daylight is specular. Not my first visit by any means and I have never had a bad experience. The food, service, presentation and ambiance is wonderful. I was particularly pleased that The Cardiff Hall Hotel caterers took care of my every needs as I am Gluten and Nuts intolerance (this is most unusual in a lot of establishment) There were three of us in my party for dinner and we were all very happy The price point is very very affordable including a good wine Well worth supporting

I am ready to leave Cardiff Hotel and Spa after a memorable weekend where I had the pleasure, peace and quiet with plenty time to retreat, relax and rejuvenate. I decided to treat myself to a full pamper day and that is exactly what I received. Keisha my masseur totally looked after my needs and massaged me from head to foot there is a shower steam that hits up in minutes! I left energised and the self indulgence day was 10/10. The room was clean and spacious for two people. The food good and nutritious and a lot of variety. I asked for a specialise breakfast and this was granted. The waiter/server trainees require more courage and boldness and many seemed afraid to speak up and smile :). All and all the breakfasts and dinners were scrumptious!

We checked out after 7 mins. Bad service, seemed abandoned. Location Is unsafe, roads to property are run down. The wifi does not work as advertised. Rooms are outdated. No refund was offered when I left abruptly. Americans - don't bring your family here !!!

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Cardiff Hotel & Spa in late May and we had a wonderful time. The hotel has a friendly set of Staff and the property was well kept. The room was spacious and comfortable. Beer, soda, water and coffee were provided daily in-room for free! We opted for the breakfast only option and enjoyed a wide variety of Jamaican style and continental breakfast all 4 days. A lot of eateries are close by in Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios is an easy 25 min drive away (27km) I can't wait to return on my next visit to Jamaica.
