Tranquility Cove - is exactly what it is! We wanted a holiday where we could relax and re-charge and we got it! We would definitely recommend Tranquility Cove for a perfect holiday!
My partner and I first stayed at Tranquility Cove in April 2011 and had an amazing time!! We loved it so much we recently returned in May this year and had another amazing holiday!!
The apartment is finished to a very high standard and has all the home comforts you need. With a large open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge, there is great sense of space which makes you feel very relaxed. A very large balcony envelops the outside of the apartment and faces out onto a well maintained garden and palm trees; we sat there every morning with our coffee and on an evening with a pre-dinner drink.
The owner of the complex is called Duncan and he is extremely friendly and helpful. He is always around if you ever need anything and lives in his own villa close to the sea. There is lady called Pat who is very lovely and friendly; at an additional charge she is available to cook and clean for you during your stay. Pat rustles up amazing and delicious meals using the ingredients we bought from the local markets and supermarkets in Ocho Rios. Pat's Jamaican style chicken curry is amazing - so much so we had her make it three times during both stays.
There is a lovely infinity pool down by the waterfront with sun loungers and a shaded patio for when it gets really hot. My partner and I spent a lot of time in the pool relaxing and admiring the Caribbean sea with a Gin and Ting. (Ting is a Jamaican grapefruit drink and goes really, really well with Bombay Sapphire!!).
There is a large gazebo at the end of the complex looking out on to the sea and you can watch the cruise ships leave Ochi in the afternoon and sunsets in the evening! There are stairs that lead off from the gazebo down to the sea, where you can slide in and enjoy the turquoise blue water. It is perfect for snorkelling or scuba diving.
We cannot wait until we return to Tranquility Cove for a third time!
