“Wonderful Villa Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed at Frangiopani in mid April 2014. We had a lovely time. The villa was fabulous but the staff made the place. We adore Omar, Edith and Elaine and they made our stay fabulous. Whatever you need or want is no problem. The food, service and ambiance was excellent. The Key Lime pie is wonderful and you must try it. My son wanted to eat it for breakfast. My only complaint is that I did not stay longer. I prefer the Negril side of the island and this is the first time I stayed in Ocho Rios but I will be back. If you have never done a villa vacation, I highly recommend that you do. This is the only way to vacation. Please do you research so you know what to expect. The next time I am only packing 3 or 4 sundress's and two bathing suits. They will do any laundry that needs to be done.

We took the plantation tour and enjoyed it. The kid's loved the camel's. I recommend it if you are in the area. You can't go wrong with Prospect Plantation.

Our family was very lucky to spend a week at beautiful Eight Rivers; one of the villas on the Prospect Plantation property. Most of all the staff, Lisa-Anne, Miss Sheryl and Lorna were unbelievably attentive and warm; providing delicious food, big smiles and beautiful towel/flower arrangements in our rooms every time we ventured out somewhere.

We traveled with a group of 30 (7 families) and rented all of the villas except for Frankfort. Rory Baugh was incredible at helping us coordinate this large number of people before we even got there and the staff made organizing our adventures and group meals completely seamless. We are already dreaming up our next holiday there!

My wife and I had the pleasure of choosing this as part of our cruise excursion package. We were TOTALLY happy with our tour guide and all the information he shared. I truly wish I knew his name. He was so nice and personal and had such a wonderful personality.
Once we learned he and his family had lived and worked on the plantation for decades the trip really became personal and even more AMAZING. The historical land and house were enough to move you and enlighten. The story behind each product that was once produced there and the people that had endured the times and pirates. I could go on and on. This visit was AMAZING from beginning to end and we TOTALLY recommend it!

Amazing! We didn't stay at the hotel, but we did take a tour of the gardens, so beautiful. We attended a Jamaican cooking class with Jason aka chef "irie" It was so relaxing and our food turned out great.

Four couples from Michigan just spent a week at Somewhere Villa. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable week. The staff, Paulette, the cook, Beverly, our housekeeper, and Akeene, our butler were all fantastic! They worked very hard to ensure we had anything we wanted to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were able to experience several Jamaican dishes and they were all fantastic. Simply put, we were treated like Kings and Queens. The fresh flowers Beverly picked daily and arranged on our beds was an extra nice touch. The villa was kept very clean. Our bedrooms were nice and spacious and the bathrooms and showers were great.

The view and sound of the ocean were great as well. The snorkelers and scuba diving excursions from a nearby resort in front of our villa added additional interest.

I would recommend Somewhere Villa to anyone wanting to be pampered in a beautiful, relaxing setting.

My husband and I spent an amazing week at Wag Water and would highly recommend for anyone wanting to get away from the resort crowds to relax together. The food by Miss Madge is incredible and Latoya keeps everything - including your clothes! - so clean. Rushane was kind enough to answer our questions about Jamaica and always had a smile. We had a tour of several of the other villas and think Wag Water has the best view. Although the view is like the pictures it's just not the same to being there! Watching the snorkelling boats from the resorts go by reminded us that we now had our own "mineral pool" that we loved so much at Couples Sans Souci.

There is not a pier heading out to the sea from land, it is accessed from a ladder at the bottom of the stairs. We didn't have any problems getting in or out. The water was clear and warm.

I would recommend Wag Water (or any of the other Prospect Villas) to couples or groups looking to get away to a beautiful place and enjoy time together with privacy and fabulous food.
