What a privilege to be able to stay at Goldeneye. We had a lagoon villa which was private, well appointed and 'chilled', which is really the best word to describe the whole resort ' chilled luxury'. Given that it is on the expensive side one could be forgiven that it might be pretentious with patrons being quite demanding, but this... More

My wife and I just returned from 5 nights at Goldeneye in a beach villa, and we are already planning our return. The setting, service, and food are first class. We are very well traveled and Goldeneye ranks among the top resorts we have visited worldwide. We love the Goldeneye vibe of exploring the property at your own pace, being... More

Stayed 29 Jan to 6 Feb 2016; friendly, responsive staff, fantastic setting, good local food and drink, pretty good weather during our stay; highlights: - swimming in the lagoon, crystal clear and calm waters, great 100 meter swim lane, but you could just float for hours, a unique experience, highly recommend the lagoon villas - snorkelling the reef, wildlife sanctuary,...

Quiet lagoon setting. Everything a la carte so only pay for what you want. Taxi's into town are incredibly expensive and local restaurants are not worth the effort. Stay put enjoy the place as is. Tried to scuba dive from a neighboring resort (beaches). Mass production dive operation...beware before you go.

As Tina Turner sang: "Goldeneye I found his weakness . . . Goldeneye no time for sweetness . . . See him move through smoke and mirrors . . . You'll never know how it feels to get so close and be denied. It's a gold and honey trap" In a nutshell, Golden Eye is a trap for tourists with... More

Goldeneye, built on author Ian Fleming's former estate, is worth the trip for its crystal lagoon, warm hospitality, water sports and restaurants. My husband and I were very happy with our stay. I recommend the lagoon cottages where you can jump right off the porch into the water. They are well appointed and the design details are lovely. Attentive staff... More

Great location and pristine beaches coat this area and there are many spots where you can just get away from it all and be on your own as well, which is pivotal for us everywhere we go. Loved the energy of the place and the quality as well.

As the title says, we didn't stay at Goldeneye but were lucky enough to eat here, so this is just a food review, not an accommodation review. I'd read about Goldeneye the resort, and it's connections to Ian Fleming & James Bond and Island Records & Chris Blackwell, so I wanted to visit when we were in Jamaica, though the... More

My husband and I got married in Jamaica and although we never like to go back to the same place twice - Jamaica is a very special place. The food, the vibes, the people, the music - keep us coming back. We decided to celebrate a birthday there and rented a lagoon cottage. For 4 days we spent time eating,... More

We cannot say enough good things about the staff at this resort. Negril, who is in charge of the restaurant is over the top guest focused - as is all the staff. The rooms are completely equipped and a natural setting abounds everywhere. Not one of those resorts where there are guests everywhere. At times, we felt like we were... More
