We only had three nights to stay at Pattoo but it was enough to entice me to book again. Right on the sea in Negril with your own private pool and living space, what more could you ask for? All of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are spacious with high ceilings, loved that everything was stone, wood and white; very refreshing. There's plenty of space to have your own privacy with numerous verandahs and sitting areas. Super cool spot close to restaurants, bars and the beach... I will certainly return.
This is one of those places that you look at the pictures and wonder if it really is that amazing... and what I can share is that the pictures don't do it justice as it is even more amazing in person. This huge castle (and it does feel like a castle) has so many rooms and also so many places to just sit and enjoy. Aside from air conditioned bedrooms, the entire house is open air and it is some incredibly beautiful air. Big kitchen with all the modern amenities (including blender, coffee, tea maker, mw, huge fridge, stove, etc.), outdoor furniture to enjoy all angles of the ocean and pool, unbelievable wood furniture inside all the white washed bedrooms, and a staff that makes the trip full of ease and flow (from cleaning to security to landscaping to cooking). I really have nothing bad to say - at all. Just make sure to come to chill and schedule some days just to stay in. From sunrise to sunset the view does not disappoint (and it actually lasts through the night with stars and moon over ocean). An out loud thanks to Gary for sharing his bucket list level castle with all of us.
Pattoo castle is definitely the place to stay with a group (of friends) if you are in Jamaica. The castle is really big and easily sleeps 14 - 15 people. The bedrooms are big and well equipped. The view is absolutely stunning and the location is perfect. You can take a dive into the sea from the terrain of the castle, or you can relax in the pool while enjoying the view of the very blue sea. The staff is really friendly and always willing to help (for example, they arranged a grill for us, so we good grill our food). Please be advised that if you want to arrange something in- or outside the castle it is wise to do that with the help of the staff, the staff has good and reliable contacts.
First off, thank you Gary for your attention and hospitality. Everything was first class! This is a review as well as a letter of appreciation.
An amazing, memorable and fun experience is guaranteed to anyone who chooses to stay at Pattoo Castle.
The views are priceless the accomodations are versatile and rival what one would expect at a luxury property. The West end location in the cliffs is story book and it is only minutes from popular 7 mile beach.
We had many experiences from snorkeling in the turquoise seas, exploring the nearby reefs and caves as well as indulging in some of the local, authentic cuisine. Every experience was memorable.
Including, I proposed to my lovely better half while at the castle. If I did it all over again, it would still be at Pattoo Castle with the breathtaking view in the back drop.
Thank you for allowing us to make life long memories at your home!
Before closing this review, I want to thank your entire crew.
Lionel is an asset to your team an obviously is evident in the tenure he has provided. Prompt and helpful he is and we enjoyed his company.
We will remain in contact.
Pass along our thanks to Keino for his insightful tips and to Patrick and Graham for their assistance and security whether it was opinion or technical. Such as where to explore around town and with routing music via bluetooth to the house speaker.
Once again, thank you for all of the graciousness and we truly hope to return again in the approaching future!
I cannot say enough positive things about my stay at Pattoo Castle, I have stayed in local resorts before (because I love Jamaica) but this was definately my favourite! The castle has been decorated to the highest of standards, the beds, linens are immaculate. The amenities like the Salt water pool are breathtaking. Only steps away from the Caribbean sea this place is a true gem to be found. The owner Gary is very respectful and accommodating, and Lightning the fisherman will catch you some fresh fish! I loved staying here, the standards, views, peace and privacy is unique and extraordinary. Very close to everything, near to the beautiful beaches, lo cal restaurants and bars. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
