A friend of mine recommended Emerald View when I told her I was taking my daughter to Jamaica. She said it would be like staying at home away from home. I was born and raised in Jamaica but my daughter was 3 the first and only time she took a trip to Jamaica so she had no recollection of being... More

Me and my partner was recently on vacation in Jamaica and we decided to stay at emerald view for two nights and believe when I say it was horrible mistake. First of all, the rooms are highly over priced with standard rooms starting at almost a $100 US per night. On top of that the location is almost impossible to... More

Emerald View Resort Villas was chosen for me by a tour/travel agency. My traveling companion and I really enjoyed ourselves there. It is outside of the city of Montego Bay; up in the hills; quiet and very picturesque. Beautiful views of the ocean and all things below. Jennifer, the owner/manager, tailored everything around us and the other guest; individualized and... More

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

Thanks for visiting Emerald View and taking the time to write your views. Just wanted to inform our travelers that our cook does leave early if no one orders dinner. However, we do provide free complimentary shuttles to and from local restaurants in the area. We provide free shuttles to Chill Out on the Beach, the Drunken Squid on the... 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...
