Jamaicans may be the Southerners of the Carribbean! Goldeneye employs the kindest, funniest, most charming and personable people I've ever met. The resort is beautiful in a rustic chic sort of way. The lagoon is my favorite place in the world. The scenery is magnificent, the food and drinks are excellent...everything you'd expect. But their greatest asset is the people.... More

Irony that I should have revisited Jamaica on the 50th anniversary of Ian Fleming's death..(my holiday August - September). All that I wished was to visit his home, take some photos of the desk and typewriter. I had no idea where his home was located neither the history of Chris Blackwell. Arrangements had been made early, a few days after... More

I had the incredible pleasure of spending 3 days here in August 2014 at a time when i needed serious rest and relaxation. The pictures don't do the place justice. You have to go there. I slept mere steps from the sea, lulled to sleep every night by the waves. I travel a lot for work and I can't say... More

From the moment we arrived at the Goldeneye Hotel and Resort it was heaven. We were greeted and escorted through the grounds which can only be described as paradise. Our complimentary Goldeneye cocktail set the mood for our long overdue Honeymoon. We stayed in a beach villa with views of the ocean, a minute away from the Bistrot bar which... More

A group of five of us was lucky enough to reserve a day at Goldeneye to celebrate a birthday and farewell for a Swedish friend who has served in Jamaica for three years. From the moment we stepped out of our transportation we were greeted and pampered, first by Avid, and then by Jenepher, the housekeeper. The lagoon cottage, which... More

Nobody can take you to Goldeneye unless you are booked there! There is no name on the gate and only a few know where it is! Such is the mystery and intrigue of the few acres of sandy beach and a lagoon, that inspired Ian Fleming to write his Bond novels. Chris Blackwell(owner of Island Records-which launched Bob Marley) now... More

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!

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.
