Villa Ann Marie is 4 bedroom villa with en-suite bathroom overlooking the Caribbean Sea on a property that hosts 4 villas, 15 minutes from Ocho Rios on Jamaica's North Coast- bordered by a magnificent coral reef less than 100 feet from the shoreline. An exclusive vacation paradise designed to seduce you into a state of total relaxation. The property is located in Oracabessa, a tiny town in the parish of St. Mary is located in the midst of some of the most spectacular natural and man-made attractions in the Caribbean. Approximately 5 minutes from the infamous James Bond Beach, Villa Ann Marie is also in close proximity to Golden Eye - originally the home of "James Bond 007" author Ian Fleming and a frequent pit stop for the glitterati.

This place is truly exceptional and exceeds expectations. We had a wonderful family vacation at Golden Cove and can’t wait to return. We stayed in a four-bedroom villa that was just the right size and perfectly situated, every room had an unbelievable view of the ocean. St. Mary is already a lush paradise, but the Golden Cove property by the sea is especially beautiful. The service was one of the best we’ve ever experienced as the staff was quite accommodating and worked incredibly hard. I especially appreciated that the staff wore their masks the entire time we were there, even when they weren't interacting with guests…that made us feel quite safe. There are a few restaurants in the area, but we mostly ate on property. The chef prepared wonderful Jamaican meals on request including one using fish caught that same day. The food was fresh and delicious. The kids enjoyed the pool and the beach while we spent most of our days on the patio of our villa or in the hammocks under the almond tree. It’s a truly beautiful and tranquil resort by the sea and we cannot wait to be back.

I had the opportunity to visit Golden Cove again in August with my Best Friends/ Bridesmaids. This was my bachelorette weekend, we were all looking for a relaxing good time with some sun and sand involved. As usual Golden Cove delivered everything we were looking for and more! The staff was very accommodating and the food was great. They were even able to get a masseuse to come on property and provide sea side massages. The ability for a personalized weekend instead of a package from an all inclusive was AMAZING! This was the perfect weekend with my girls and we will surely be returning!

Golden Cove is my go-to spot whenever I'm able to stay in the Ocho Rios/Oracabessa area. The villas are spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished with all the amenities one could need. The staff is warm and accommodating. The location can't be beat with lots of space to spread out, take in the ocean view and access to the water. I would highly recommend!

Golden Cove Villas is one of the best villas on the north coast. The staff was excellent and the service was first class. It is located not far from the town centre in Ocho Ríos as well as being ideally located on the beach. Whether is was a nice relaxing day on the beach or a lay by the poolside, Golden Cove has it. The staff was more than willing to give recommendations on what to do near by when I wanted to explore the attractions, food or scenery. Golden Cove villas is a must stay. I will definitely going back on my next trip!

December 19 We arrived late to our villa at golden cove excited about our stay in Jamaica. Our first impression was nothing like the photos and descriptions had portrayed. Roaches were in the master bedroom and one of the upstairs bedrooms. Furniture was in disrepair. Rodent feces were on the master bed as well as the night stand and floor. The master bedroom toilet was broken. Didn’t realize until after we used it having traveled all day long. We were exhausted to say the least however there was no way we were sleeping in that bed! It was 1 am we packed the car and after not finding a vacant hotel for the night slept in our car until the next day when we were able to secure lodging for the remainder of our stay. Luckily we were able to find a condo on the beach that was clean and not infested with rodents and roaches. This was supposed to be one of Marriott’s elite homes only available for chairman level owners and it definitely didn’t meet Marriott standards. I have stayed at Fairfield’s that were cleaner and in better condition. Don’t be fooled by the pictures on the web about this place. Here are some More accurate pictures of what we found. Unfortunately we had used Marriott points for the stay 7500 and ended up having to pay cash to find a new place last minute. That 7500 roughly cost us around 9,000. And ended up paying another $7000. We have stayed in Aruba, several Hawaii islands as well as the Virgin Islands and so we were excited to explore a new island we hadn’t been to. There won’t be a next time.

Had the opportunity to stay for a week at this villa with 15 relatives during June 2016. I found the view to be truly paradise waiting. The staff from the property manager (Nicky) to Henry who resides on property to take care of the Macaws. SK and Apache were attentive and responsible with providing us with all our food service needs. Monique kept my room clean, while Val the pool lifeguard taught my 2 cousins to swim. The pool was the best part with the water a nice temperature at all times and the lights at night made the ambience even more pleasurable. Keep up the good work.

I was having a stressful week at work my friends invited me to Golden Cove. It was more than I could imagine. Let me start with what happen on arrival. We were greeted with a glass of coconut water. This alerted me that the service they had was one to please the guest. We were then shown to our villas. The manager was there to greet us and she was amazing and very hands on. She ensured we were in good hands and gave us tour of the property. The grounds was free of debris and one could feel and smell the fresh air. And was ideal for the perfect wedding. The pool area was what I fell in love with. The Cabana and the whole area just spell tanning and relaxation. The beach area had the perfect for partying as on look over the expanse of the caribbean sea. My most exciting part of my five days stay was the meal. Hats off to the chef who only wants to know what your palette desired he just went out and did his awesomeness thanks chef for the scrumptious meals. The staff what can I say. More than keep up the great work of being more than just doing your job but has a sense of enjoying it. Hats off to Shaneka for your smile and patience. You brighten the already beautiful property. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend those who wish to just get away to visit this property in Jamaica.

My friend was getting married and decided to keep it in Jamaica to my surprise he booked the whole villas for family and friends. This place is fabulous, the ocean view Is fantastic, the villas have a warm, welcoming, sophisticated look to it. They have these beds on the outside when you lay down, you will definitely fall asleep. The place is windy not cold and the pool water is warm. What I like is the fact that they supply water shoes for those who wish to go into the ocean because it is full of rocks. The water is rough if you trying to kayak but really nice to bathe and there is a life guard on duty which I find is really great because you feel safe. The food is fantastic, real Jamaican food. That chef can cook. These maids are quick when cleaning your room and the pack everything away, clothes, shoes everything. Thanks to Nikki the manager she made this experience wonderful and enjoyable. I can't stop think about this place. I will definitely go back. They just need to do something about getting there. That drive is too long especially coming from Kingston airport but when you reach the villa all tiredness gone straight out the window.

Stayed at Golden Cove Villas in Oracabessa for a family vacation it was absolutely fantastic! The property was immaculate and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We had a team of two chefs who were willing to listen and execute meals to our specifications.There are a number of dining locations: standard dining room or if your wish is a beach barbecue this can and did happen for us.By the way,what's a beach BBQ without a bar...this was set up as well.Then there's "Look Out".....as the name implies, fabulous view! Went Snorkelling on a number of occasions, there is a vibrant reef right within easy swimming of the beach .For those who didn't want to swim in the sea the day was spent by the pool . We went to Blue Hole in White River Valley...St. Ann. Grand parents sat and watched while children and grand children jumped off the rocks. A grand time was had by all......we shall return to Golden Cove. Special thanks to Nicky (property manager) and her wonderful staff who made all the difference
