We typically don't do the laid back beach vacation, but this summer we were getting a bit burned out and last minute decided to book Goldeneye for a week. So glad we did! Although it was a long trip (we made the poor decision to go cheap and not book a direct flight, so after enduring 2 flights + a... More

amazing place. great food, but it takes a while and is a little pricy, the lagoon is great and so are the pools. Amazing staff and service. It is one of the best that I have ever had. If you go there expect to see some famous people.

Everything about my last family stay at Goldeneye burned an indelible passion in my heart for this special place in Jamaica. From time to time back in the States, I think about the amazing moments at Goldeneye with my family, so many that I was compelled to return for a second summer. Simply stated, it has to be in the...

Stayed 3 nights to attend a wedding. I must say I felt like I was in paradise. The food was excellent, breakfast,lunch and dinner. We stayed in a beach front room. Those rooms have a full kitchen. which I would recommend if you like to cook is too purchase a few groceries before you check in. It literally feels like... More

Spectacular. The perfect honeymoon trip. So relaxing and peaceful, great beach and pools to sit by. The service was absolutely incredible - everyone was really nice and easy going.

We (2 adults, 2 children) returned from a week at Goldeneye yesterday and we had a fantastic time. The resort itself stands in blissful isolation from the major tourist focus areas and that in my opinion is a strength. It is located on the edge of the small and authentic town of Oracabessa. About an hour and a half drive... More

We are at present enjoying our third visit to Goldeneye, each visit better than the previous one. Goldeneye is quintessentially Caribbean and represents the best traditions of Jamaican hospitality. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful; you get to first name terms with most of them, and yet they are never in-your-face. There are enough activities to fill a leisurely... More
