I stayed at one of the privately owned apartments: Ocho Rios vacation resort properties. It was the best decision ever. I did not have to be woken up for "room service". It is close to a lot of facilities and tourist attraction sites and Knuttford Express bus service depot. The beach is secluded. And closes around 18h00. The house keeper...

Spent a week here for Christmas. Booked a privately owned apartment #29A. Clean and simple apartment with a great view, well supplied kitchen, and walking distance from grocery store and restaurants. Beautiful grounds. Thanks so much to Christian (the owner), Semone (our housekeeper) and Norman (our driver) for good suggestions and friendly help. Much more enjoyable than being locked into...

Perfect. Just Great! NP's what-so-ever! Stayed for a week and the accommodations were just perfecto! Room Services were the best. I may go again someday, however, there are many other places I still need to see! Unless, of course, one of my friends' want to get married in Paris or somewhere, I will be there for them! Jamaica was a...

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...

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...
