Goldeneye is truly one of those special places that you just simply can't do justice with even the most eloquently written review. We have stayed every summer for the past three years and look forward to going back next month. I am pretty "well traveled" and can honestly say, I have never found a more relaxing destination than Goldeneye. The... More

Another June and another vacation in Goldeneye. It was even better than last year. The food has improved tremendously and there is a Sushi night as well. Service continues to be excellent and friendly and as always unobtrusive. By far one of the best resorts I've ever been around the world. It's now an annual fixture and am looking forward... More

This resort was wonderful. The lagoon rooms were great - we had so much fun diving off the deck and using the kayaks. I felt like I did when I was a little kid -- just swimming all day long and going from pool to ocean to lagoon. I wish I could do that every day. :) The restaurant food... More

There really is no place like Goldeneye. From the view that greets you across the bridge to the magnificence of the lagoon, the privacy of the villas, the warm and friendly staff and the fresh farm to table food representing Jamaica, there isn't a better place to spend days...months even! A few highlights that we really enjoyed: - The lagoon... More

I have visited many resorts and hotels in Jamaica and this maybe the best. It is absolutely beautiful. The rooms - 2 bed room villa is amazing. Everything in the villa - including bed quality is fantastic. The beach is on your door step and the water just crystal clear. Everything is laid on so nicely - you cannot but... More

We had an amazing time here at Goldeneye. We did jet skis, stand up paddle boards, massages, kayaking and just relaxing by the sea. There really isn't anything quite like Goldeneye from the time you first walk across the drawbridge it's like entering another world.

Had the opportunity to transfers some V.I.P clients to the Goldeneye resort in Oracabessa St Mary, from Montego bay and on our arrival the staff met and greeted my clients with warm true Jamaican hospitality , the golf cart was waiting for the luggage. The concierge manager then escorted the clients across the secret coves, breathtaking private beaches, tropical forests,... More

Value for money is something that matters at any price point, it sets expectations. I understand that March is high season in the Caribbean, but for $1400/night for a 1 bedroom villa I expect everything to be perfect - it's Aman prices. Pros: - elegant, spacious villas - there's a kitchenette with a stylish SMEG fridge, sink, etc so I... More

Golden eye was always a place of intrigue for me in view of being the former house of the author of James bond books, Ian Fleming. The setting is what you dream of -a laid back luxury, the bay is perfect shape, and the lagoon allows you to do all kinds of sports- kayaking.paddle boarding. I stayed in a self... More

I have been traveling to Jamaica for many years from Negril, to Ocho Rios. This was our first time at Golden eye and we will definitely return. The accommodations are excellent, the resort is boutique and cozy. Staff are excellent (Nadia, very warm and helpful, and Rickard in the diningroom, very welcoming and wonderful). Ricardo, are you feeding those kittens... More
