Just returned home from a 3 night stay. Thank you Mackie for letting us know about VS. We loved it! The grounds are beautiful and the room are well maintained and clean. Each member of the staff greeted us with a smile and made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast and dinners were on point each day. Thank you for my special birthday drink. Without a doubt, we will be back!

I stayed at the Villa Sonate for 9 days in Dec 2019 I absolutely loved it . I gave it 5 stars because I think it deserved it. The room was clean and attractive, fresh clean towels . Genuine Jamaican breakfast every morning served most morning by the awesome Dallwayne . The chef made my American grandchildren alternate breakfast they requested. From the reception office to the security at the gate all the workers were pleasant and eager to give good service. If you want a quiet CLEAN environment to disconnect and rest this is the place to be and there is a private beach attached. Villa Sonate my favorite small hotel to be.

About 5 minutes from the main road, Villa Sonate was a great little place to stay. Attractions are close by, including Flavours Beach and Ocean Park Beach. The staff is very friendly, including the security at the gate. I spent one night here and I would stay here again. The room was very spacious. I didn't need to use the A.C. as the fan was adequate enough for me. The garden was beautiful and each room is named after a plant/flower. Cable is available and also a security deposit box. Food portions are very generous compared to other places. The food was okay. There are breakfast and dinner packages available. Breakfast included local cuisine, as well as a choice of continental breakfast. Dinner was a choice of two options with sides. Parking is limited. Outside bar has TV's, so you can catch up on some sports if needed. There is also a little "commissary" at the office, in case you forgot to pack toothpaste. Snacks are also available. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Nice, intimate and cozy is how i would describe Villa Sonate. Excellent customer service. The staff members were quite efficient and kind. Big ups to the Chef, the meals were creative and tasty. I will definitely be back, not for work but for personal leisure time. Thanks for the great customer service, please keep it up!

Villa Sonate is amazing. The place is so relaxing. The staff anticipates your needs and are professional in their interaction but friendly at the same time. The food is AMAZING. I recommend this venue for people who want a quiet get-a-way or to hang out with close family and friends. I enjoyed every minute of my three days stay.
