“Most amazing, unforgettable, fairtale honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2009

This was by far the most amazing honeymoon we could have ever imagined. Everyone knows Jamaica is beautiful, but being able to experience this place at Bluefields Bay Villas makes it a true fairytale vacation. The staff is by far what makes this place so fantastic. Their kindness and helpfulness is unbelievable. They truly make you feel like royalty...anything you want- No problem man! We stayed at the Milestone Cottage and got to tour the other villas. All are just breathtaking! Everyday we woke up and Matthew our butler was waiting for us out front- what would you like for breakfast. Anything you want! We ate breakfast at our dining table overlooking the pool and ocean. Then we would get ready and walk down to our private beach where Matthew had the kayaks waiting for us. We kayaked everyday to the villas own sandy beach, just up the crystal clear ocean coast. Matthew would take my beach bag and our cooler and meet us over there with chairs and towels ready. We spent most of the day at the beach sunning, swimming and snorkeling. Just an amazing day. At lunch we would kayak back to our villa and have the most amazing food prepared by our cook, Jackie. Seriously, no one makes food as good as Jackie!!! In the afternoon we would sun, swim and snorkel more. Then we would come in and get showered and ready for dinner. At sunset we would have appetizers and drinks out by the pool. Then Jackie would serve yet another fabulous meal. After dinner Thermagene would turn down our bed, close the doors and turn on the air conditioning. Anything we wanted laundered we would place in the hamper in our room and Thermagene would have it put up in our closet by the next afternoon! Like I said, the service was absolutely phenomenal!! That was pretty much our daily routine. One day Ricardo took us shopping and to Rick's Cafe in Negril and another day Matthew took us on a hike up the mountain behind the villas. Just absolutely the most relaxing and enjoyable time we could have ever imagined!

Some things people may worry about: the guard dogs....the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. They just look after you and don't bother you at all. So sweet. Having the staff there at the house all the time. At night the night guy Levi would come and sit out front as our night time security. We never felt like the staff was smothering us at all. They were there when we needed them and sort of blended in when we were having some time to ourselves. It was a perfect blend. The food- amazing, enough said! The drinks- amazing as well.

Overall, this trip was nothing like we ever imagined! It went beyond everything we ever expected. The only problem we had with the entire week, was having to go back to SC and leave that amazing place. We will definitely be returning in the future, this time bringing our family. Everyone wants to experience this amazing place.

You will never regret going to this place!!

I've never experienced anything like this before. We stayed at the Hermitage. It's a great place for couples, a group of good friends or families. It's completely private, like staying at someone's house for the week.

Everything was included in the price and included a full staff at your service to cook 3 meals a day for you, clean your cloths, get you drinks, drive you around, pick you up and drop you off at Montego Bay airport.

The beach was a few steps away down a private staircase where you could kayak, swim or lay on the raft in some of the calmest water you will ever find.

My husband, two adult sons and I spent Mother's Day week at the Villas at Bluefields Bay.
Is there a more beautiful place in the world? I don't think so. There, set in the south sea coast is a piece of heaven.........fully staffed!
My family had one of the great vacations of our lives at this island paradise conceived by the brilliant hostess. Being experienced travelers, we do not exhaggerate the luxury, comfort and serenity.
The staff is friendly, poised, professional and available though not intrussive.
Would we go again? In a heart beat. This place helps your heart beat longer adding lovely memories to recall when stressed or aggitated.
I recommend this experience to the discriminating guest who has a taste for the best.

We have been to Bluefields 14 times in the past 19 years. Due to personal matters, we had been away for a few years before returning for this trip, the first time we'd not returned for more than one year..

Everything was wonderful, of course; it was great to see Marvin
again, beginning with the very first night at Milestone. We
absolutely loved having one night a Milestone; the new beachside space
is an excellent idea (it actually rained almost the entire time we
were at Milestone, but it was that lovely tropical rain that didn't
dampen our spirits one bit; the weather was great the remainder of the
week).

Our son was elated to be back and showing off "his" place to his college
best buddy. And we think that our adult guests' expectations of San Michele - already high due to our praise - were
significantly surpassed; they were so happy! Everyone thought, at the
beginning of the week, that they'd want to make several of the day
trips, but, in the end, except for a trip to the reef, everyone was
happy to stay "home".

We were good-naturedly chided by many of our old Bluefields friends
for staying away from "home" for so long. James stopped by very early
in the week and really brightened our day; somehow through the years
we have managed to spend a lot of time chatting with James; I think
it began when he insisted on cutting the grass at San Michele with a
machete when the lawn mower was broken... because the next day was
our wedding day.

While attending to our other matters time got away
so quickly... but the staff at Bluefields made us feel so very much
at home, it is hard to believe we could go four years again without a
return visit.

Thanks so much for everything, for making our return "home" so special.

Where to begin!

Your house, furnishings, setting, staff.. All wonderful.

We will definitely be back for sure.

The Hermitage (great choice of name as our children are adopted from Russia + we spent many hours in The Hermitage in Russia!)was a refuge in our crazy, blackberry , technology fueled world.

I was delighted there was no phone and no TV. Even our 2 little ones after 2 days forgot the words "tv" and instead rediscovered their imaginations.

Your staff are wonderful, caring and personable. They shared with pride their length of service and how much they value what you and your husband have done for their community.

We were engaged by Percy and his infinite knowledge of flora + fauna.Jackie with her delicious food, Jason with his quiet presence, Lawrence with his dry sense of humor , Carmen with her engaging charm, Kim + Ro-Anna were delightful, Ro-Anna particularly caring and engaging with our children, J who makes the best jerk pork ever tasted..

We had a wonderful ( too short) time and will definitely be back.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us.

My husband and I returned to beautiful Bluefields Bay, Jamaica and Cottonwood Cottage this year for our third anniversary. The staff is absolutely wonderful (very accomodating, helpful, polite and friendly). They greated us at the door when we drove up with "Welcome home." That's exactly how it felt - only better! We had spectacular views of the Bay from anywhere we were: the bedroom with the french doors, the patio, the infinity pool and our own private dining room (The Treehouse). Swimming in the Bay and basking in the sun with the perfect surroundings is definitely the way to spend a vacation. We are already planning on our next visit and can't wait!

We had a fabulous time at Mullion Cove. It only took being greeted by our personal driver at Mo-bay airport to start the memories flooding back. Again I remembered why I always seem to choose Bluefields Bay for my precious vacations. People have asked me in the past, "why do you like to go there so much", "why don't you try somewhere else"? I have tried other vacation spots, even other places to stay in Jamaica, and Bluefields Bay Villas are just the best. It is not just the beautifully appointed homes and terrific views, but there is a fantastic staff that always seems to be at the right place at the right time. Earl, our Headman, made our last day as special as our first and all the days in between were wonderfully happy and unique. Of course the food was excellent and exquisitely presented. I haven't even mentioned that we had a birthday and a recommitment ceremony while we were there and we could not have been happier with the way your staff handled all the details. The fact that we could have all the privacy we wanted or the option to mingle with other guests at the managers cocktail party and Wednesday luncheon is another bonus. We always felt so special and loved and cared for. I always tell people if they want the most memorable vacation ever, they should go to the Villas at Bluefields Bay. JL Sarasota FL

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Comfort, privacy, and luxury combine for a distinctive blend of all-inclusive Caribbean waterfront travel. Bluefields Bay offers the ultimate in personalized service at its six luxurious waterfront villas, each with a private pool and expertly-trained staff. Enjoy gourmet meals and tropical drinks as you vacation in natural settings beyond compare.The six secluded seafront villas are perched on the Caribbean Sea with dazzling views of crystal-clear sparkling blue calm waters perfect for snorkeling and sea-kayaking. Relish spectacular sunsets from this southwestern Jamaican fishing and farming village called Bluefields after an invigorating hike up the untouched mountain right behind the homes. This South Coast of Jamaica is unspoiled by commercialism, and so this is a place where visitors can interact easily with local residents who welcome them heartily.The private and luxurious villas offer gourmet meals prepared by your own chef to your personal specifications. Each house has a “headman” (Jamaican concierge) who serves meals, clarifies preferences on food and drink, and helps your experience unfold like the tropical foliage. Housekeepers not only keep rooms sparkling, but also send guests home with suitcases of clean clothes at no extra charge. And, if people bring children, devoted and caring nannies are provided. Each staff is rounded-out with a waterfront attendant, gardener, night porter for after-hours service, and driver when needed. ... more   less
