They offer taxi service to town which takes about 15minutes. They will take you to the road for free to catch your own taxi... More

I stayed at the Emerald View during a business trip for a conference at the Montego Bay Convention Centre. I enjoyed avoiding the resort hotels most of my colleagues stayed in, which sounded like 24-hour party hotels. My experience with Jennifer (onwer) at the Emerald View was nothing like their experiences, and that was perfect. She provides a discounted taxi... More

This really isn't a hotel, it's a guesthouse. You are living in the owners home. Jennifer was very friendly and accommodating but, it's just not what you would expect from a hotel. Nowhere near restaurants or public beach. $25 per person to get to the main strip and back, for beaches and restaurants. I asked for an evening meal but... More

I loved staying at the Emerald View. Jennifer made sure we had a fun filled day from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. Everyone was so friendly and made you feel like family. She was the best tour guide and taught me alot about the history of Jamaica. Definitely going back soon.

From being picked by the resort's bus in Negril to many tours around Ochi Rios I had whole lot of leisure time while on this business trip. Nothing truly prepares you for the view just when you enter the property, it is beautiful and the environs are simply breathe taking, Lushes mountainous veiws of green as precious as the Emerald...

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights. Ms. Jennifer, the owner, and her family were sooo wonderful to us. They never treated us like tourists. They always made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The Villa is beautiful and they are there to help you with anything you need. Where the Villa is located gives you the chance... More

very nice staff, respectful and friendly. their food is organic. they were very formidable and helped me with my gluten free diet. their menu include both 'American' and national Jamaican dishes. although the villa is located on a beautiful mountain, the city is like a 15 minute car ride.
