Prime location with priceless view. Lovely interior, great layout, spacious, nicely furnished. Somewhere I would come home to everyday. Close proximity to all major attractions. So even though inside is very comfortable you want to get out; even if it's just out on the huge balcony.
Had a wonderful time.
The penthouse was very nice. We slept very well in the master bedroom. The 2nd bedroom was nice, my only complaint was the mattress. The location is the best! We saw the cruise ship come in a few times. The view is incredible. The housekeeper Michelle was excellent! She cleans very good and is an excellent cook.
First let me clarify the owners response concerning the bedroom AC in the master bedroom. It was not replaced until we stayed there. It packed in on our first night. We then had to wait around the condo for four days while a new one was installed. Although the unit was being installed by a relative of the owner he told us not to trust him and to have someone in the condo at times the workmen were there. We waited two days before anyone turned up and a further two days until the installation was complete. Four days of our vacation wasted. The AC in the second bedroom never did work and the one in the living room was disconnected. After having it reconnected and seeing the amount of electricity it used I can see why. Beware, if you are a long stay guest you have to pay for the electricity which in Jamaica is horrendously expensive. As for the updated kitchen it is true there is granite counter top installed but the cupboards are in a very poor state. The apartment was absolutely filthy when we arrived and as the owner has already stated his regular housekeeper was on vacation, not for the two weeks we were told but for three months. I'm sorry to say that Michelle was not much of an improvement. She helped herself to any food she fancied without asking. When we brought this to the owners attention he just said that was the local culture. We could not use the closet in the master bedroom because it smelled of mold. When the AC was being installed the dressing table had to be moved, the dirt behind it was terrible there was even an empty insulin pen. Under the couch which has been stated as being very uncomfortable was some sort of stain plus mountains of dust which we were accused of making. The office staff as has been stated are no use at all. Everything seems too much trouble. It was stated that a local cell phone would be provided which it was but it was not activated and could not be used. I could go on but I think anyone reading this will get the point.
Our place was lovely Michelle was great and she was available to us everyday. Great place to stay would stay here again. Sherril the owner was very pleasant and informative. Thank you Sherill. The ocean view was spectacular
My family and I went to the Pearl Penthouse Suite in Ocho Rios for the first time and we had an awesome experience. The suite was kept immaculately clean every day and the house keeper Michelle was excellent in attending to our every need. She did everything to make sure we were comfortable and happy. The owner is courteous and great to do business with.
The view is absolutely amazing - overlooking the town of Ocho Rios.
The location is central therefore everything is readily available and easily accessible such as: food, entertainment and general shopping etc. The amenities are adequate and add to total relaxation and comfort.
Overall I/we had a very memorable vacation. My 5 years old wants to go back next week!
