Chillin' at Old Fort Bay
Reviewed October 22, 2011

Returned for a 1 night stay with family members (7 people total) and stayed in one of the 4-bedroom units this time. Lots of space, very clean, modern and very comfortable. The staff of 2 ladies took very good care of us - preparing a wonderful dinner and breakfast, just as we asked! They were even able to get through some of our laundry! I had forgotten juice on our shopping list, but the ladies went ahead and made limeade, otherwise, we would have had to go out to get something to drink with dinner! We did have time to enjoy the pool and take a short walk to the nearby beach.....nice touch for an evening of relaxation.

Spent a short while in a 2 bedroom unit with some friends. The pictures on the web do not do justice to the units at all. They are wonderfully furnished and very comfortable. Sheree (our housekeeper) prepared tasty Jamaican dishes and took wonderful care of our every need. The grounds are immaculate and the courtyard area very inviting for meeting up with friends. I did not use the pool but instead, walked to the beach - which was just a very short walk down the road. The beach has lounge chairs for your use, so no need to bring any along!

Not my first visit to Chillin' and certainly won't be the last! Went down with a group of friends for a joint birthday re-union. We were well taken care of in every way. Beautiful, restful surroundings... perfect to sit back and catch up with friends. Accommodations were first-class... clean, attractive, modern and well-kept. Pretty grounds to lounge around in. The staff out-did themselves and were always pleasant, friendly and just a joy to have around us! Food... excellent!

Beach is just a short walk down a quiet neighbourhood. Nice, sandy and warm waters! Ideal really!

Room Tip: Lovely garden views mostly.

This is by far a hidden gem away from all the crowds. The facility was great, the staff was outstanding, a short walk to the beach and the room were great. Like all villas in this category, you must remember to purchase your food so the staff can cook your meals. The staff is with you from 8-5pm and they can stay longer if required for an additional fee.

One more thing, unless you have friends here, make sure to get a car, because you're away from the big cities and walking to the store is not available.

Spent 10 lovely, relaxing days with my husband, 19-year son and his friend in late August. The setting was so relaxing, and the hospitality and warmth of the Chillin staff unforgettable. We loved the central lawn/courtyard set-up and enjoyed many delightful cocktails and great social moments with other guests in the pool after lazy afternoons at the private beach. The villa is tastefuly appointed, spacious and meticulously maintained. Our cook was fabulous and took care of grocery shopping and "going to market" after developing a creative menu which offered every taste of Jamaican cuisine! Convenient central location - close to Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mountain, Enchanted Gardens, good golf courses and the famous Scotchie's Jerk centre. Margaritaville (just 5 mins away) was a great nighttime attraction for the boys. Easy day trips to Port Antonio and Montego Bay. We have already chosen Chillin as the venue for a 25-person family re-union in 2011 - we'll take 3 of the 6 villas, and can hardly wait to bring back the expanded family.

I recently stayed at Chillin' at Old Fort Bay with my significant other. We adored this Villa! It is very particular and different from others. First of all, it is situated in a nice quarter close to Ocho Rios, very calm and pleasant with its own private beach and swimming pool. At the same time, we were far from the tourist crowd. Secondly, the staff was superb; they cooked daily meals that were simply delicious! And finally, the rooms were nice and clean and really top notch! In fact, there are several bathrooms...one for each bedroom. The bedroom has an enormous bed, which is made like a cloud in the night sky, so there are stars everywhere and ambiance is tender. I will certainly come back to this fabulous Villa!!!

A few minutes to all the excitement of Ochi but a retreat from the crowd. Great for families and couples alike. Definitely the Chillin spot in Ochi.
