I have never seen anything like this resort in the Caribbean. It is like something that you would find in the South Pacific. The lagoon cottages are so well thought out and made. The simple but elegant architecture of them is amazing. The porch hangs out over the lagoon and we would just sit there and watch tropical fish swim... More

Stayed here for a week arriving on Valentine's Day. The entire stay was blissful. Lagoon Bungalow 8 was perfect. We could literally jump into the crystal clear water from our bedroom in the mornings. The staff are all fabulous - so attentive, they really look after the guests beautifully and seem so proud of this beautiful place. Can't wait to... More

I'm so hesitant to write a review as I want to keep Goldeneye a secret. We stayed there for ten days during the holiday season and it felt like we spent the holidays with our family. Ricardo, Clayton, Nadia- amazing front office/administrative people-so welcoming. Nardia, Aldrick, Shakeera, amazing restaurant staff. Daney, Dane, Dave- the most amazing water staff EVER!!! We've...

We stayed at a two bedroom beach (though also at the corner of the lagoon) villa. We had a nice stretch of beach pretty much to our ourselves. When we went to one of the pools, we usually had it to ourselves. The site is beautiful. The Ian Fleming villa is well worth a visit, as is an excursion to... More

Everything about this resort is perfect! Great service, beach, food.... Massages, activities ... Not one complain! Really magical. The two bedroom villa right at the beach is perfect for a family up to 6! The Little kitchen makes even better. The staff is so caring and happy. You can't really relax

I preface this review by saying I actually had an issue one night during my stay but am still giving this place an outstanding review. While my situation could have been handled better by the staff while I was there it was followed up by the GM upon my return home and properly taken care of. I am not a... More

What can we say - a little bit of heaven on earth. Beautiful beach, stunning lagoon, amazing fresh food - most of it grown on their own farm. Spacious, well furnished cottage, glorious swimming pool, professional but friendly staff. The only thing we could think of to mention is that we had an outside shower - which is lovely in... More

Stayed 3 nights at this beautiful resort in Jamaica. Top-notch food and service. The staff, especially Clayton, could not have been more polite or accommodating. Our view from a beach villa was spectacular. See my photo attached. Elegant dinner and fun beach lunches. Really great stay all around. The only down side is a 2+ hour car ride to Montego... More

One can see why Goldeneye has such an illustrious guest book. Its stylish, discreet, cool and relaxed .... and everything you would hope for in an upmarket Caribbean 5 star resort. As a travel professional seeing many hotels, I haven't been so excited for a long time in discovering something new which delivers on several fronts. Exceptional food, the warmest... More
