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

Stayed 3 nights at this beautiful resort in Jamaica. Top-notch food and service. The staff, especially Clayton, could not have been more polite or accommodating. Our view from a beach villa was spectacular. See my photo attached. Elegant dinner and fun beach lunches. Really great stay all around. The only down side is a 2+ hour car ride to Montego... More

One can see why Goldeneye has such an illustrious guest book. Its stylish, discreet, cool and relaxed .... and everything you would hope for in an upmarket Caribbean 5 star resort. As a travel professional seeing many hotels, I haven't been so excited for a long time in discovering something new which delivers on several fronts. Exceptional food, the warmest... More

I just came back from the most magical stay at Goldeneye and I can't wait to hurry back. From the moment I stepped foot I felt like I'd entered paradise. And not just because the rooms are exquisite, the sea is crystal clear, the beach and the lagoon are stunning. It's because of the energy and the spirit of the... More

From the moment we arrived Clayton, the concierge, was gracious, knowledgable and friendly. He toured us through the property - which is gorgeous, even if we only saw it after dark - before dropping us at the Bizot Bar for pre-dinner drinks. Drinks are balanced and delicious, the bartender Jason is fabulous. It was early so the bar was fairly... More

We visited Goldeneye in Nov of 2014 and found it to be an absolutely gorgeous resort. Unfortunately for such an exclusive and expensive resort we were extremely disappointed by several issues. To begin with, each morning there was music we could hear on our porch coming from both the local church and school, not what we had in mind at... More

Very Beautiful, very stylish, very friendly, very laid back, and very expensive. Worth every penny. The rum punch was more of a caipirinha, but so much the better. The music is an excellent collage of world and reggae, in true Blackwell taste. Just audible enough to make it out, but nothing that would interfere with a conversation.

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
