I get pretty regular massages, but the therapist Dawn administered the best massage of my life. Overall the entire property is as about as laid back and relaxing as you can get. Good vibes from everybody and the staff is accommodating but also unobtrusive. But the spa is remarkable and Dawn is a main reason why.

We stayed in this resort as the second part of a two resort adventure in Jamaica (see our review on GeeJam in Port Antonio region). After a fantastic stay in Port Antonio, we hired a car for the near 2 hour ride to GoldenEye. Security is very good. You’d never really know what was behind the gates! We were shown... More

This was our second visit to the Goldeneye, and it will not be our last!! Whether the resort is full or not, it never feels as if there is anyone else around, except for the amazing staff. Everyone, from the driver to front office to housekeeping and wait staff, is incredibly friendly and takes such pride in their work and... More

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
