This jewel of a B&B on a hill with spectacular views overlooking Montego Bay was just what we were looking for on our first trip to Jamaica. Our upstairs ocean view King room was squeaky clean , attractively furnished, and quiet with a comfortable firm bed and in-room safe. The feel is more like a villa than a B&B, with only 4 ensuite rooms in a separate wing of the beautifully situated residence. Our charming hosts Peter and Elaine could not have been more helpful with arrangements for drivers and suggestions for sightseeing.
Hailing from Sunset Beach on Oahu in Hawaii, where watching the Sunset over the ocean with a glass of wine is a daily ritual, Vista de la Bahia did not disappoint. The west facing orientation of the spacious lanai and pool complete with chaise lounges offered the perfect end to our days of swimming at beautiful Doctor's Cave Beach (10 min. Walk) or day tripping to Ocho Rios, YS Falls and Negril. Half of our 9 days, we were the only guests present on the grounds at any given time,so we felt very private .
The beautifully prepared and bountiful breakfasts were served on a covered portion of the same poolside lanai and were the highlight of each day.
The spirit of Aloha is alive and well in Jamaica.We were overwhelmed by the positive friendliness of the Jamaican people we encountered in the visitor industry, from our hosts to taxi drivers, wait staff, etc. "Are you enjoying yourself?" is the question of the day.
On our last night, we ordered dinner from the Pelican restaurant (owned by our hosts' family) sent up to be enjoyed on the lanai while watching the sunset afterglow. Mahalo (thank you)to Peter and Elaine for all their personal attention
