Pros: Decent villa. Looks a bit old however rooms are clean. Close to the center of town with local places to eat. Security present so I felt safe. Walking distance to maragretaville Cons: only one key to room. Had to coordinate with travel partner when we went our separate ways during the day. Restaurant food was delicious but pricey. Breakfast... More

We loved the place! Although it was a holiday weekend and couldn't have beach access, we still had fun! Everyone was friendly and helpful! We especially enjoyed the restaurant and Ms. Noella, what a lovely lady! I feel we made a life long friend!

This was the perfect spot for our family, right on the beach. I was able to exercise every morning on the beach. The children had the best of both worlds, the beach and the pool on the property. The condo itself was comfortable. We had a two bedroom condo and we slept comfortably. There was one television which the kids... More

I have stayed here at least 8 times. Location is great. Walking distance to stores,restaurants,beach is 20 ft away. They allow visitors (in case you get lucky),grounds kept real nice refrigerator,stove,ac,pots pans. If you're not fussy this place is where you should be for the money.

Perfect condo (D15) to rent with a lovely view of the beach. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and a good air conditioner. Close to everything in Ocho Rios. Very safe and secure. Mainly a quiet location unless there's a beach party, those get really loud. Rented through HomeAway. I hope to stay here again. The resort has free wi-fi, but... More

From what we understand, this resort was closed for a few years and has been successfully reopened. The five large buildings with individual apartments of varying sizes is near the cruiseport, and the downtown area of Ocho Rios. There is a large private private beach where you can relax and people watch as well as enjoy the warm tranquil water.... More

Lovely hotel with a private beach but it closed at 6pm which wasn't very good because you never got to see night on the beach. Refreshments were very expensive considering the shops just outside were half the price so we bought them there instead. Had a lovely time especially as when you went in the water you were literally swimming... More

Craft and shopping markets are right outside the door as well as the beach which if free if you stay here.They have amenities right on... More
