“Amazing time”

Although it has taken me some time to write a review, late is better than never!
We stayed at this property for 8 days with our 3 children (ages 11 to 16) & we absolutely LOVED it. Karen & Coleman are the sweetest & kindest hosts you could ever hope for & the property felt like our home away from home. The grounds are beautiful, pool, property & accommodations are well taken care of & clean. The swimming in the bay was a dream come true with plenty to see while snorkeling every day (or just going for a nice swim). The dogs are the sweetest, making us feel even more at home while missing our own (they are truly wonderful, so do not let this stop you if you are hesitant).
This is one of our favorite properties we have stayed at. The kids still speak of it often & tell people that it's their favorite part of Jamaica.
This is a very special property with Karen & Coleman forever in our hearts.
Hope to return one day ...

“Snorkelling Wonderland”

The location was fabulous. Never an issue of feeling unsafe. This ocean villa is fabulous if you're a snorkeler. Peace and quiet. Locals very friendly. Owners very friendly and there when you need them but not intrusive. Really enjoyed this spot.

I do not normally do reviews, but this place is really a good place to stay. It was probably our favorite out of four places we stayed on our week vacation. Our host and hostess were polite and caring. They were around and willing to answer questions. The room was clean. The bed was firm and comfortable. The A/C worked, but there was not much need with a nice breeze off the water. The pool and the ocean were amazing. We snorkeled for two hours and saw plenty of fish. The only down sides are the wireless internet was non-functional, the kitchen and couches in the common area needed a deep cleaning (or couch covers).

I would love to come back.

“Perfect Place!”

In between MoBay and Negril, Le Mer Villas await! I stayed at there as part of a yoga retreat. I, too, hesitated on writing a review in fear that too many people would discover this little slice of Jamaican heaven. :) It was absolutely perfect. The Villas were completely fenced in, gated and guarded by lovely watchdogs (Champ, Mr. Hops, Molly and i forget the last one's name. :( All were friendly and made me feel safe). My room was quite large with a private bathroom, closet, king size bed, A/C, fan, TV(although I never turned it on once) and a private balcony with a view of the sea!! I couldn't have asked for more! It was very comfortable and clean...just perfect. I only used my A/C at night when I slept as most days I wasn't even in my room. I was swimming or snorkeling in the sea right out back, hanging by the pool, relaxing in the seaside hammock, going on an excursion, walking to the beach or exploring the surrounding area. They do have wifi in both houses which was nice to communicate with loved ones back home. Both houses have 4 rooms that can accommodate up to 12 persons a night. You can rent a room or rent the entire house! There is a shared living area and kitchen in a wide open, airy type of space with a view of the sea. Not only was the house great, the owners Karen and Coleman were also great. They were very friendly and informative and constantly sweeping the seaside lounge/yoga area, cleaning the pool, doing the lawn and religiously checking on our rooms to make sure the trash was taken out and we didn't need anything. I would definitely recommend and come back!! Yoga retreat or not! Karen and Coleman seem like great people and have an amazing slice of Jamaican heaven to offer. :)

“Beautiful sunsets on bay”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

Enjoyed Villa very much,perfect spot away from resorts and crowds.Clean and neat.
Need information booklet about rules&regulations what inform the guests what Le Mer is all about - what is allowed / to do &local info.(taxi's/restaurants etc)
Arrived with 4 year old - 4 dogs on property. No swimming after 10 pm. Be quiet before sunset and sunrise for YOGA ...try that with active kid,
Have info on linen procedures...and provide extras. We decided and requested we will do the cleaning,but little cleaning materials.
The cooking facilities/utensils were bad.Pots and pans rusted and no lids to match. Fridge / freezer don't keep stuff that cold.... BBQ facilities need help....charcoal hard to find
"Speak when spoken to" management and staff/owners to inquisitive and in your space when you do your own thing.

Thank you for taking us shopping on the way to Villa, but do your own shopping faster.We paid for that and also your $45 dollar fine you got to pick us up. Park in parking lot that's provided.Arrange the pick ups better with clients.

The owners very friendly...but settle management issues in private.out of sight and hearing of guests.

Lastly don't make promises you can't keep.
