    Also, read page 2 of the Grand Oasis Viva to Close thread a few posts down on the page. Some good comments on it there.

    Hedo - Not Even Once!

    What a mixed bag of reviews, we have some friends who are in their early 60's that love the place but we just can not get past the difficult travel situation from the west coast, the 90-minute bus ride, and the lack of amenities.

    Even the resort photos just look bad and you know the resorts never look as good as the pics.

    We're stick with Original Resorts for now and not risking $3K on a bad vacation.

    Hedo? Honestly, wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. That much $$$ and not even guaranteed hot water, never mind about the food.....(reports from friends whose judgement we trust).
    Desire or TTR please.

    I am amazed that Alpharooms booking are honored in Jamaica. Never heard of anyone using it there, unless you are from the UK. I asked a couple of years ago on the Dennyp forum and was told it was not allowed. Maybe things have changed.

    Make sure the "WE" is aware of what "SHE" is getting into. Hedos nude pool is 1/2 the size of TTRs sexy pool. Anytime after 3 pm, there will be at least 3 couples have S** in public, Also have seen a gal give everyone at the swimup bar a b*. My wife is a school teacher and gets drug tested often, she DID NOT care for all of the public Ganja smoking.

    OKAY,OKAY, Maybe I could get used to it, but my wife was totally grossed out.
    The Piano Bar was fun. always some buck naked gal from Ga, Al, or MS trying to sing "Stand by your man".

    When you go, you can take JTL (Jamaican tours Limited). They will make at least 4 stops prior to Hedo. We always used Joe Cool Taxi!!! He is the BEST !! VERY safe and funny guy

    On second thought, If you have been to TTR and Desire that many times, I think you should go for it. However, I would definetly post on Dennyp and ask about Alpharooms. I know in the past, Hedo would NOT honor the reservation and required the guest to pay extra. AND MBJ AIN'T CUN !!!

    Judging by the pics of Hedo at the price they charge I'm shocked anyone would go. I get they offer a "special" product but man you sure pay for it.

    Hey I know that woman at the swim-up bat. She is a very friendly sort.
    As far as transfer to Negril. . Isn't Tim Air still operating it was $59US each way last time we used it.

    And the buck naked girl singing in piano bar gets old very fast especially when you want to divert your eyes. Usually someone you'd rather see clothed.

    We went to Hedo a few years ago and had a good time however we like Temptations better. Those that think the rooms at TTR are bad havent seen anything lol Hedos rooms are terrible however you dont spend much time in the room. They have a "prude" pool that is nice however no one uses kind of like the Quiet pool and then there is the Nude pool which you have to be nude to go to. There is also a naked waterslide which is a good time. They have theme nights like TTR and entertainment etc. For the most part the food wasnt great but I always found something I could eat.. We have friends that love it there though and go yearly so if you're looking for public sex and nudity you'll be just fine. If that stuff bothers you I'd cancel the trip..

    I copied this off of the Dennyp.com website. Kinda old, but this is what Denny himself stated about Alpharooms:

    "Hedonism II has said that they will not honor reservations made through European web sites for guests carrying US passports. The resort will charge the difference in price at check-in."

    Dennpy was (is) a great source/Travel agent for both Hedo and Breezes resorts.

    There is another air service called International Air Link that also flies from MBJ to Negril.

    Yes, Marshe, She was VERY VERY friendly.
    If you want your friends/kids to see the REAL truth about long term Ganja use, take them to Hedo. As my wife said "These folks were totally burned out in 1972"

    there was some weed smoking there while we were there but it wasnt crazy out of control. I myself dont do it or like to be around it and I didnt have any issues.. We went in June of 2012 and the people there at the time were a pretty fun group.. though I did notice it was mostly an older crowd (I was 28 at the time) I was definitely the youngest one there when we were there..

    We went in 2012 and had a good time. With that said, we thought the place was a dump and the food was awful. We highly prefer TTR. Better rooms, better food, and a better crowd.

    Don't do it unless you don't like to party and just want to sit around smoking weed all day and night. If that's your thing then go, but when we were there the service was poor and we always had to wait on food and drink. The worst part was the staff would have their friends and family there and would serve them before the guests. Several times I was waiting on our lunch to be fixed and standing there butt ass naked with several of the staffs daughters (my guess they were 14 or younger) waiting on lunch right along with everyone.

    There was never any music being played at the main pool and we were bored the whole time there. We talked with several couples that had been going for years, and they told us that "this is the best party resort around". If that was the case, Hedo is a retirement home and TTR is a Frat House on steroids. We did meet several really nice couples and was surprised that there were single guys there however no large groups and no issues at all. Everyone was just really laid back.

    Best part of Hedo was at night at the piano bar and the sing along. That was fun, but several nights the guy got so smoked up and high that he cut it short. We went with another couple (friends from TTR) and are glad we checked it out, however we will never be back. When we left, the other couple was supposed to stay another three days, but left and went to TTR. Just our two cents for what its worth.

    Hedo is evrything u say it is. . .most weeks. Except during takeover weeks.
    Had to laugh about 'the guy got so smoked up and high that he cut it short'.
    That would be Danny.

    And if he is jonesing. . . He is downright rude and ornery.
    And don't even try to sing along if he is straight. He'll call u out and embarass u. It is his show and only his show when he has no smoke.

    Lots of people do not like Hedo II's or Grand Lido Negril's main dining area. Its "open air". It has a roof, but no walls. Its was great in Dec, but in April and May, it gave new meaning to the term "Hot and Bothered". Agree about the effects of the Ganja, Everyone kinda assumes these guys are really mellow and friendly, NOT !!!
