For starters, here is the good about Excellence Oyster Bay...this is a beautiful property. Everything is very modern and the rooms are really nice! The staff was absolutely sincerely nice, not just angling for tips, but genuinely nice. Drinks were made very well from scratch. The layout of the property was nice. Beautiful beaches secluded from other resorts. Entertainment was fantastic. The people who were extra nice was Dwayne, Kerese, Nacilia, Michel and Roshene (hope I spelled them correctly)
Now for the parts which bothered me which isn’t much.
We forgot to bring small bills for tips (rookie mistake) and everytime If go to the front desk and ask for change we got the same response...”come back in an hour and we will have cash”. I didn’t care if it was USD or JMD. Only once was I able to get change for only a $20 after I made a stink about it. Again, rookie mistake but still, no cash at all?
Second, the food. Now it could have been just because of Covid and they just reopened, but it seemed like every single restaurant we went to, they were out of a bunch of dishes. It became comical when at Chez Isabelle they had 3 selections for soup and I tried to each one and each time told “we’re out of that”, only to get a soup that wasn’t listed, The Lobster Bisque, and then literally brought out a shot glass full of soup.
The portions were extremely small. I mean like...really small.
Overall, I absolutely recommend EOB! Just bring small bills lol
