I booked this room at the very last minute everything went according to plans and then some! The price was right and Leon and Melissa were the best host and hostess to us. This is a charming villa away from the hustle and bustle but within minutes to get to the beach. Melissa took a day to show us around Ocho Rio which I def appreciated! They were so accommodating to point when I didnt feel well they were gracious enough to bring me tea to help me. Didnt swim in the pool since I was busy trying to be with my family at another resort but the grounds and everything were very inviting. If you need a ride somewhere there was Charlie to the resuce!! I really felt safe and welcomed and will definitely will be going back to see them!! Thank you again for a wonderful memory!! *Only reason why I did t give it a 5 was because I have a hard time sleeping on firm beds (unless I've partied enough not to care ;) Sincerely, Liz Swafford…
A little out of the way. If you prefer the More grand, on the beach and much more expensive place then this is not for you. Older (built in the 90's) but well maintained, very quite, roomy, more like a bed and breakfast. Full of wild birds, peacocks greeted us every morning. Excellent accommodations for the cost.
I found this place to be very relaxing. I loved the grounds and the abundance of plants and birds. Every morning there was fresh fruit and coffee for us which was included in the price of the room. It's a short walk to a good restaurant and is not hard to find if you have Google maps. Hard to sleep in past 7, though, as it can get noisy with neighbors doing lawn work, even on a Sunday.
I got married here many years ago and I plan to renew my vows here on my Anniversary so I came for a day visit and I wanted to see this beautiful grounds and if rooms were still outstanding and the answer was yes,did not spot the peacocks water theme feature was not working but kind staff put it on,the rooms have improved a little still lovely big kitchen,not sure if i can afford to stay there as prices more than doubled now,it was quiet not much people around,They need to add more pictures on display to make resort more welcoming.
This place was not as advertised I was very disappointed on arrival to find that it was a hostel style setting not a private contained apartment room as illustrated upon booking. I complained and the duty manager Leon was very helpful and managed to offer an alternative, however this accommodation was not to any standard and I could barely complete the one night stay. The place was roaming with all types of insects including cockroaches, the fittings in bathroom and kitchen were of very poor standard overall the whole unit was an uncomfortable place to be. Therefore I had to cut my losses and check out after one night. The manager was kind enough to arrange a taxi guy to take me where I needed to go. All I can advise is DO NOT STAY HERE...ALL IS NOT AS IT APPEARS TO BE!
