...or we won't be able to get in next time!
Just got back from a short stay at Villa Cocotero - just four nights - and I can't speak highly enough of the place.
Admittedly, it doesn't look like much from the street, but the rear gardens and swimming pool are superb, as are the lovely helpful people, Cherry Diane and Jerry.
I really can't understand Amanda291's gripes.
I would love to return and wouldn't hesitate to take my family.
My standard room was clean and comfortable. I used route taxis to get where I was going (James Bond Beach - $400 Jamaican entry BTW - and Ocho, for example) and following advice, paid $100 Jamaican each way. Reggae Beach is indeed a 15 minute walk away.
There are two stores within a 15 second walk and the Jerk Centre (Ooooh... at least 30 seconds away) provides great jerk chicken and pork meals (and more).
Really, don't miss breakfast! Don't hesitate either, just go!
