Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Mynt Retreat is a gem! The property and space is lovingly created and maintained by the owner and her staff. When I had cell phone troubles (due to my cell plan and lack of int'l coverage) the owner, a beautiful soul, set me up on her own personal wi-fi so i could contact my family whenever I needed. I highly recommend the Mynt Retreat.

This was my time away from friends that traveled with me to Negril for a week. Once all that nonstop party got out of their systems and they left, i needed A BREAK!! Mynt Retreat provided the solace I needed. Ms. Valarie and her son Ryan were truly awesome as well as their Housekeeper and daily cook. I really vibed with the housekeeper because she was an EXCELLENT cook and really loved her job & made an AWESOME POT OF COFFEE for me. I drank so much coffee and was still able to sleep at night. I would sit and talk to Ryan at night after coming in from Peppa's. Every time I'm in Montego Bay I go to Peppa's Chill Spot to eat and relax. IT was so perfect that Mynt is right next door. This was the best decision I made to relax and chill in Montego Bay before returning home to the states. I loved every bit of the time I spent there and would gladly recommend them to family and friends. She has a driver on call that can take you to a local spot or two for a very affordable rate. The WIFI was really good on my mobile phones. I didn't bring my laptop, so i don't know what it would be like to attempt to work but checking emails and doing things on my multiple phones were just fine. I randomly ran into an old classmate from Highschool at Mynt Retreat, such a coincidence because I'm super lowkey about my travels. You never know who you'll see while away so just be kind in life. This place is wonderful for those that want to chill, kick back & mind your own business.

This property is charming, clean and Valerie, the owner is so helpful and kind. Next door there is a great local restaurant (casual) called Peppers, where you can eat under the stars. Mynt has small but relaxing grounds and is directly connected to Peppers via a garden-like walkway. Mynt is reasonably priced, so whether you are in the area for vacation, or need a place to stay before/after the flight - consider Mynt. A superb value. It's not on the beach but I was told you can see the water from its location high on a hill, we arrived to late and left too early to tell,. You are near a roadway, but thats to be expected in/near any city, so was not a problem at all for us. Probably anyplace not directly on the beach is near a roadway...

If you are looking for something beyond the hyper-touristy glossy and packaged resorts then Mynt may the place for you. We made a trip to Jamaica in Feb and stayed at the Mynt for 4 nights. It is a pretty short hop from the airport and is located away from the resorts and the central hubbub. There were some reviews complaining about the noise, but we did not have any such experience. The hotel is adjacent to a very popular restaurant and may have been the source for the noise. The hosts were welcoming, warm and helpful all through the stay. The rooms are named after Moroccan towns and are light and airy. There is a great view of the bay from the balcony. The breakfast was excellent everyday - wonderful Blue Mountain coffee, made to order eggs, tropical fruits and local fare. Enough fuel to sustain the traveler till late afternoon. Some Tips 1) The hotel provides airport transfers, but you deal directly with the driver in terms of payments. It is NOT free 2) Email a request for a 2nd floor sea facing room . Not all rooms do so and we were not sure which ones did. 3) The rooms are clean with comfortable pillows and linens although some folks may feel they are a bit barebones especially the bathroom and closet. Even though they are air conditioned, we did find ourselves being bitten by some mosquitos. Stock up on some mosquito repellents from the local store. The water pressure was a bit low and the water lukewarm on our 1st two days. The host attributed that to some maintenance work, but something to remember and check 4) Mynt is also off the beaten path in more ways than one. Nothing except the restaurant next door is within walking distance and you ned to make transportation arrangements either with Mynt or through some other means. We were fortunate to have very nice, friendly drivers who acted more as guides . Check with the hosts All in all, a place that we recommend

Repeat visitor to this wonderful b&b 5 minutes from Montego Bay's Airport. Spent 4 nights with my 2 adult daughters. We stayed in Marrakesh large room with 2 very comfortable large beds and a sofa bed. Valerie, Ryan, Yvette and Sherece did everything possible to make us welcome and comfortable I could not ask for more. We also had the best Jamaican breakfast which was included in the price. Very centrally located it was a great base to move around from. Definitely the only place for me in Montego Bay!

Above the fray of both ends of Montego Bay and sitting a bit removed from the ordinary. Airy rooms and first class beds with breezy fans and A/C. TV too. It's a resort city in a changling mood that struggles with the simpler needs of a visitor. Mynt does not struggle and is neatly placed for the next vaca seekers. Again, the hotel is a bit away and for now it is noisy during the day. At night it is less noisy and I slept very well every night for six nights. Waking up I thought each morning of the breakfast to come at 8:00. Fruit plate and juice taste like they once tasted in my memories of the Carribean and do not taste of the frig. Next door to Peppa's where the food is simply real and admirable and a moment from your next flight. Mynt and her staff will be helpful and gracious. Ask them. Do.

We booked this last minute and were initially pleased although we didn't get a 'proper' check in; gave our names, handed a key and pointed to our room. Room was big with two double beds and good size bathroom. Big wardrobe space too. Location is near to the centre but taxis cost US$15 so it builds up if you're going into town and back and back out again for the night (we did one night out at Pier 1). Otherwise you have Pepper's next door to go to which wasn't great (had to wait 20 minutes for them to sort the bill out). Beds were comfy and room cool with the AC, however, I woke up the second morning with tell-tale signs of bedbugs - round red bites on my ankles and on my knuckles and thighs. We moved the well-worn rugs into the wardrobe and moved luggage into the bathroom. We would have checked out but we had one night left so didn't change hotels. The owner was very friendly and apologised for not being there when we checked in and gave us some good local tips. Cute dog was there too (if you're a dog lover) and friendly staff. Room and bathroom could do with a lick of paint/freshen up. Old TV but worked OK with wide choice of channels. Good breakfast but wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed here for 9 nights after my husband took ill at the end of our 2 week holiday until we were flown back to the Uk. We can’t stress enough how very helpful Valarie & her staff were in making us feel welcome and helping us out during our very stressful time. Nothing was too much effort. Valarie really helped us a lot during our stay and we have never encountered so much help in any of our stays abroad. Initially we stayed in a room downstairs then after 3 or 4 nights we stayed in a room upstairs which was more spacious. In both rooms the beds were so comfortable and the rooms were thoroughly cleaned each day. Breakfast was excellent also! The restaurant which is in the garden of the hotel was excellent. We ate there every night and all of the meals were cooked to perfection and were all really tasty. We had the pasta dish at least twice as we loved it so much.

My husband and I stayed at the Mynt Retreat in November 2018. It was very clean, relaxing, the massages were nice, and the internet connection was good. Ms. Valerie was a superb host and the local breakfast was excellent. For evening meals we went to the restaurant attached to the property which also served excellent meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again once we return to Jamaica.
