My partner and I recently spent 3 nights at this resort and can't fault it in any way.
I found the resort by chance on the tripadvisor speciality lodging after having searched many weeks trying to find a suitable place on the North coast of Jamaica which wasn't the usual all inclusive.
This place is very special indeed. We are both hard working professionals so finding the right hotel to cater for our needs was important. As their website indicates it is a small resort of exclusive villas which are absolutely immaculate to look at and also have lots of little extra's which shows that they care about the detail.
Even before arrival they asked whether we needed any assistance with travel, groceries etc. We stayed in the breadfruit villa (all by the way are beautiful just take a look at their website). They are furnished to a very high standard with good quality equipment in the kitchen, something rarely found in villa rentals. Special extra's we noted were a good coffee machine, a blender for making your own cocktails, plenty sharp knives and in the bathroom good quality shampoo, conditioner and aftersun cream.
The outdoor shower and private dip pool were a delight as was the beautiful artwork liberally scattered about the villa. One important thing for us was internet connection. Each villa has it's own router which results in high speed internet connection (just in case you are unlucky enough to have to log on for work!)
The restaurant and staff were happy to cater to our needs. So we ate when we wanted and they were happy to prepare a surprise Jamaican menu for dinner which was delicious. You can of course request your own preference but we enjoyed leaving it up to the cook. Prices at the restaurant were quite acceptable. On our last night they surprised us with a special dinner on the beach, complete with candles. Something that we didn't request but they made the effort to make it very special and romantic and I could see the excitement of the staff in arranging this as they were determined to keep it a secret from us.
The beach at the property looks small on the website but there is in fact plenty of space to chill out or you can use their snorkels and kayaks for a bit of adventure.
The property is close to Ocho Rios town itself if you want to try other restaurants or do a bit of shopping. We hired a car so took the opportunity to venture out and visited Dunns River Falls (a must see) and nearby Reggae beach.
We are still in Jamaica but now further along the North Coast enjoying Boston Bay.
We loved Hermosa Cove though so we decided to call back again for a few more nights before ending our Jamaican trip.
I recommend this place for all those busy people who need to escape the crowds and enjoy a bit of peace and luxury.
