    Building 5, end suites facing the beach. Absolutely the best view room wise I have had. Suites are a bit overkill for me now (baths are monstrously large), but the double balcony is really nice.

    Well, here is the difference. I am aware exactly how some of the staff live. I agree that conditions are bad in jamaica. However, I do not think 5 Hershey kisses is going to make someone's day. ...

    Both are pretty good. Three dives is slow, slow, slow. Pushcart is decent. Lots of other spots to check out on the cliffs if you go. Three dives has some really hot jerk sauce as well.
