“Nice, Cozy, Clean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This apartment is centrally located in Ocho Rios, close to bars, restaurants, sights, etc. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, modern, I had no complaints. The TV in the bedroom was missing but no big deal we just moved the one in the living area to the bedroom. You get a great breeze from the nearby ocean and mosquitos were minimal. I was however unable to access the wifi. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.

“breath taking views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Fantastic location, central to tourist attractions: Turtle park and Dunns River Falls, local beach, shops, bars, restuarants and clubs: Ocean 11. Beautifully decorated and maintained by owner and daily maid service. Free pick up from Airport, Dennis the driver was reliable and welcoming. Jennifer Dyer the owner was wonderful, she went beyond her remit to make sure I was satisfied and maintained contact with me throughout the duration of my stay. I have been recommending this studio apartment to family,friends and colleagues for future holidays in Ochio.

Thank you for your comments about Palmviewja.com Apartments based in Sandcastles and Colombus Heights. We hope to see you again soon. In the meantime we were happy that you received your iphone that you left in the apartment. I was becoming worried about the postal service in Jamaica being slow. Thumbs up that you now have your phone. As we say in Jamaica "One Love One Heart". (Glad you arrived back safe in the UK lets hope the raining weather clears up in London!)

“Best Apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I have stayed 10 days at the sandcastle hotel in the private apartment D12, this was the most marvelous experience that I have endured. I was able to see the beach from sitting on the balcony, feel the fresh cool breeze as it blows in through the double doors. The view from my room was spectacular as it was green with palm trees swaying from side to side. If you are feeling a hot rush you are able to sit by the pool side or visit the beach which is just 2 minutes away.

The rooms are equipped with air conditioning and fans; so you will be cool throughout your time there. This is a 1 bedroom apartment, however, there are 3 beds available, one in the living room and a pull out sofa bed. Kitchen,bathroom and eating area is provided for you, the property is extremely clean as you are provided with a cleaner who cleans every Tuesday and there are facilities that will enable you to obtain a clean apartment. The owner expresses excellent customer as she (Jennifer Dyer) was constantly there to help with any problems and will give you information to all the beautiful attractions which is only a couple of miles away from the hotel. If you wish to see happens beyond the hotel, then the town is only 2 minutes away from where you are staying, the town offers restaurants, night clubs, super markets and fast food restaurants. You will see vendors selling beautiful jewelery and other souvenirs.

To sum this up, my experience staying at this hotel has been magnificent. And i would strongly advise you to experience what i did.

Thank you very much for your review of the apartment we knew you liked it, however didn't realise you like it that much! The staff here were shocked and some tearful when I showed them the review today. There has been so many negative reviews about some of the apartments in sandcastles resort in the past. Once clients now realise that apartments are privately rented like the one you stayed in they will now be able to book in confidence. Once again thank you, we hope to see you soon.

“One of the best stays we've ever had in Jamaica!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Jennifer the owner who was there to meet us after a long flight from the UK and how wonderful it was to see that the apartment was exactly as it appeared in its pictures. Although there were additions which made it even better for example a double wardrobe in the bedroom. Everything was top notch and made our stay in Jamaica one of the best ever. Jennifer has thought of everything down to hair straightners, curling tongs and hairdryer for the ladies. The mobile phone which she provided at no extra cost was invaluable as we were able to keep in touch with family and new friends that we met on the island and they in turn could contact us. The use of the laptop was also a much appreciated added extra. The maid service every other day was great and Shirley called first thing to find out when it was ok for her to come along and clean and worked with us very well especially after heavy nights out.

The apartment was a real home from home and very comfortably accommodated three ladies all doing their thing in the morning and evening when getting ready to go out.

The apartment is very central to everything, walking distance in fact, but just far enough away to befrom the wonderful hustle and bustle of the Ochi human and mechanical transport! Margaretaville, Amnesia, Baywatch, Oceans 11 are all within about 5 minutes walking distance for great nights out with Turtle River Park directly opposite the apartment.

We had breakfast in Sandcastle and although lovely and in a beautifully breezy spot, it was quite expensive so we tended to get breakfast from the take out restaurant in the grounds of Sandcastle which was plentifull and cheap so we also had many dinners and lunchs from there as well.

All in all a great property to stay in Ochi and we had no problems at all, we've already booked up with Jennifer for next year, but this time for three weeks!!!
