The photos are accurate: this is a place to feel as if you are all alone to enjoy the beauty of Jamaican beaches (no matter how many people are there). This resort is gigantic, giving us a chance to feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. We stayed in a lagoon cottage. Goldeneye has all the gracious touches:... More

This was one of the best vacations we ever took. All the people there were top-notch from the guy who raked OUR beach every day, to the cleaning lady. Everyone always said HI. This is a long way away from the airports but worth the trip.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little drunk on rum punch as I write this. This is our 2nd time to Goldeneye and we look at it as a complete detachment from reality. It is not cheap though. Not all inclusive and you will pay for everything. However it is all first rate and the staff is super friendly. If... More

After being on the island twice a year for many many years, we finally found true Jamaican hospitality.......from the moment we arrived, to the drop off at the airport for departure. Goldeneye certainly has a special vibe that I feel is created by the folks who take care of you during your stay. Personal service without being obtrusive, low key... More

Our trip to Goldeneye was beyond our expectations! A true pleasure in every aspect. Our amazing trip began with Laurel, our driver from Goldeneye, meeting us just outside the airport. She greeted us like old friends with a big smile and an even bigger hug. From that moment we knew we were in good hands. She knew our travel day... More

First time visitor but was very familiar at the same time. Various beaches, pools, bars and views made for a great and varied weekend without leaving the property. Much to do on the road as well with other visitors full of stories about the nearby waterfalls and lagoons accessible by land and water.

I decided to bring my Wife here for her birthday while we were on our honeymoon for dinner. What an unbelievable place!! The food was top notch and you really get a sense of history when you see all the James Bond pictures up in the reception area. Unfortunately staying here for a week would be a little out of...

My husband and I decided to travel last minute and were able to book the brand new beach huts at Goldeneye for 4 nights. The resort is unlike any we have stayed at prior. The layout and lush, natural settings make it fun to discover what is next on the pathway-a secluded beach, a serene lagoon, an infinity pool, or... More

A group of 8 of us went down to Jamaica to celebrate a friends bday. We stayed in the Ian Fleming Villa. From Telsie to Nicolas the villa staff was amazing and the facilities were breathtaking. We watched 007 movies in the screening room that used to be his garage. We kayaked around our own private beach. We lounged by... More
