Goldeneye, stayed October 25 for 6 days. We were picked up at the airport in Montego bay by Laurel for the transfer to Goldeneye. We had a most enjoyable drive that we wished would last longer. She was engaging and very funny, we had one continuous laugh all the way to Goldeneye. We were met by Clayton, our concierge from... More

Wow ! If you are looking for relaxation, a staff that feels like family and a property that is over the top amazing, stay at Goldeneye. We stayed in a Lagoon Cottage and had a fish tank in our front yard...literally. No where else in the world have I stayed where you have almost complete privacy in your own cottage... More

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.
