Mynt Retreat
Ranked #3 of 46 Montego Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A few weeks ago I found myself stranded without a passport at the Montego Bay Airport, unable to reenter the United States for three days. A kind airport employee contacted Valerie Brimo, the owner of Mynt Retreat a few minutes away from the airport, and soon I found myself at a most beautiful villa overlooking the bay. Miss Brimo had recently converted the abandoned mansion into a Moroccan-themed bed&breakfast, and the place surprised me with its elegance and sophistication. Miss Brimo helped me most generously with my numerous problems (which included a very tight deadline for an article), ranging from internet access to finding a bus to Kingston to being fed light meals when I was too busy to leave the premises. And even though the bay looked most enticing, I was very happy and well taken care of in this beautiful, airy house. I highly recommend this most inviting retreat at a most convenient location - it's not just for stranded travelers.

Room Tip: All rooms were newly and tastefully furnished.

Valerie, our hostess made our family visit to Mynt Retreat a real treat. Working with us from afar, she and her staff prepared an inviting homecoming treat for my mum containing favourite foods from her childhood; and of course a rum punch without equal. The room was spacious, comfortable, with air conditionin and a cieling fan ( we switched back and forth since the nights were cool) and a private terrace overlooking the sea. Our breakfast of salt fish,banana, yam and festival was washed down with orange passion juice and blue mountain coffee on the terrace. The wi-fi service was much appreciated and it was ever so close to the airport. The perfect launching point for our trip around the island and down memory lane.

Room Tip: The Marrakech room has two queen size beds, a sofa bed and a private terrace!

From being greeted with warm, smiling faces, to our send off behind a wonderful cooked to order breakfast, Mynt Retreat did not disappoint. Such a short ride from the airport, which means convenient, but on a quiet residential street,makes the retreat excellently located. Our room was spacious and the decor was lovely. There was a stunning view from our private patio. The staff was efficient and helpful. They secured a driver for our evening dinner and willingly allowed phone use without the hassles of a larger property. Valerie, your property gets great marks!
Namaste

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room with a great view. Order the Jamaican style breakfast....delish!

MIssed my flight! No flights til the following day. I had travelled from Saint Mary to Montego Bay - that is a long trip- my driver left! Stressed!! Needed a room for the night with a ride to the airport the next day plus Internet. Surprisingly some very expensive all inclusives did not provide such basic yet very necessary services. I was so happy when Ms. Valerie took my call, just her calm voice made me more relaxed. She and her team took care of my needs and I felt at home. Highly recommended, can only get better with time.

We stayed at Mynt Retreat in April for 3 nights because we had a business conference to attend at a hotel in Rosehall. The staff at Mynt were so endearing. It truly made me feel like I was in the comfort of my home. Valerie and her team made sure all of our needs were taken care of. They offer almost everything there. We even got a massage therapist and got our hair and nails attended to. I would recommend here to anyone.

Room Tip: We preferred the upstairs rooms because of the decks.
