I preface this by stating that this is my first review submission. I just don't ever take the time to share my thoughts on my culinary, of vacation experiences, however, our experience at Datura warrants this testimonial. My background is Jamaican, we live in the States. We decided to celebrate my mom's 80th and my sisters 50th birthdays. Upon extensive...

Do not miss an opportunity to visit the unique Datura Villa! Location, location, location. The three most important words to describe a place to vacation or live. The Villa has all three. Along with a superb staff included. Our group took all meals and loved the local flavors. Let me just say that the homemade dishes were a delight. I...

A truly beautiful location and amazing staff. We were greeted at the airport by Chisolm and taken to breakfast then Doctors Cove for a beach visit as our plane arrived early in the morning and the Villa was not available when we arrived in Jamaica. Upon arriving at Datura Villa we were introduced to the staff and settled in to...

Datura Villa- What a wonderful adventure! The house is nestled on top a hill with heavenly scenery. I am not a morning person but the beauty of the land and sea was too good to miss a minute of. Not to mention they had coffee prepared for us by 6:30 each morning. The home is on 9 acres, is 5000...

Our weeks stay at Datura Villa was a magical time in a dreamy setting and was just the medicine that I desperately craved!!! The Villa itself is perfect, with every amenity imaginable, but it's the incredible staff that makes the stay one of the best vacation experiences ever!!! The hardest part about being there...is leaving!

We're here currently with 3 other couples and 3 children. If you read the reviews alone it will blow you away as its all positive, however you just gotta bite the bullet and get here. Built in the thirties on 9 acres of land overlooking the bay this property kicks butt. The staff are absolutely wonderful with Shereen heading up...

We had an incredible vacation at a Datura Villa! The house was enormous, the staff was amazing & the view was breathtaking. Waking up each morning with coffee waiting for us was such a treat. We would bring it outside and sip it while looking at the beautiful grounds overlooking Montego Bay. Coming from Boston during the worst winter in...

Within the house is a high-ceiling, grand living room with mahogany floors, a library, bar, TV room, antiques, a screened-in dining room overlooking the aquamarine waters below, and a commercial kitchen. The large terrace, which is ideal for day-dreaming and viewing stars at night, overlooks the large swimming pool and hot tub. Also on the grounds are a tennis court,fitness center, tropical gardens and fruit trees of Mango, Orange, banana, coconut, lemon, allspice, and breadfruit. This is the perfect spot for families, honeymoons, and groups of friends to relax and play. ... more   less
