“We Found Gold...”

First, I have to start by saying - this is my first review ever. I have to admit I have always been one of those to read and critic every review on here but never have I contributed. That changes today! And this property deserves my time and appreciation.

My fiancé and I are both world travelers. We have never enjoyed being in touristy areas as we always enjoy being a part of the action without having to sleep around it. Because of this preference we knew we would NOT be staying on or near the 'hip strip' of Montego Bay. I first came across The Palmyra reviews as a Solis Resort property. I was bummed when I found that they were no longer a partner and began a search for a villa/condo rental. That's when I came across an owner's Flip Key listing on here - for the same property! I called the number listed and Sharon was in touch with me 45 minutes later. She remained extremely responsive and understanding to my needs, concerns, and requests before, during, and after our stay at The Palmyra.

The condos are extremely spacious, clean and MODERN. I LIVE for modern/high tech equipment and this is not something you can typically find in Jamaica. Not even at the Ritz Carlton or Half Moon which are both right next door. Trust me - we visited a few rooms at both during our stay. The infrastructure here is that of an American 5 star hotel.

Service & Transportation - The concierge here is great and always a phone call away! With this property being a good distance out of town, you will need to coordinate transportation to and from restaurants, clubs, etc. NO PROBLEM! There are at least 4 -6restaurants which provide complimentary pick up and drop off for dinner and they also can arrange taxi's/on duty car service to get you around for about $35 each way into town. Want to do a tour of Dunn River's Falls or Horseback Riding? NO PROBLEM! With the partnership this property shares with the Ritz and Half Moon, most tours will provide complimentary transportation as well. $20-35 each way too much?? Well, you could go right outside the pearly gates and catch a local cab at the 'bus stop' across the street to the right of the street light (be careful and only do this during the day) for less than $2usd each way! yep... that's right!

The kitchen and appliances are wonderful and the views were breathtaking. I have a fixation with bathrooms (weird - I know) and this place has amazing glass rain shower and separate deep soaking bath tub with sectioned off toilet. AWESOME!

Private Beach -The beach, as is the entire property is serene and relaxing. You should be careful of the slight unevenness (due to rocks) in the ocean. They have about 10 cabana beds on their private beach and their pool and lounge furniture is better than any I have seen at other resorts and villas.

Costs involved - Like I said - We found gold. Sharon's rates are more than reasonable. We saved $1,000 (6 nights) by going to Palmyra over an all-inclusive. Let's face it, who goes to another country to eat chicken fingers and Italian food? Save money, stay here and enjoy a few excursions mingling with the locals and pigging out on west indian food. YUM!

THIS WILL BE YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
