“Fantastic family vacation”

After reading all the great reviews, we thought maybe it was too good to be true but Palm Villa actually exceeded all expectations.

First and foremost, Miss Jennifer (the host, and, incidentally, one of the best cooks i've ever had the pleasure to have met) was the most welcoming, generous and kind person we could have hoped to have met and we were very glad to be under her wing on our first trip to Jamaica. She absolutely fawned over our boys (aged 12 & 14), and they quickly became very fond of her. She served us a new traditional Jamaican meal at every sitting, and all were delicious. Jennifer keeps a very tidy and clean establishment and it was a true pleasure to have all meals, cleaning and even laundry done before we could ask. Jennifer never failed to give us the best advice on the most fun filled activities, and even called ahead of time to a few places to ensure we were fit in and negotiate the best possible price. Our family grew so fond of Jennifer that on our second to last night we hosted her family to a barbeque party and had a wonderful time.

Her recommended driver, Mr. Mason, is an exceptional fellow. He was always prompt, courteous and brimming with knowledge on history, activities, and other useful information. Our boys really took a shine to him, as he would share special stories for them as we drove. You could listen to him for hours, he has a voice that should be on radio. He is quite reasonable compared to other driving services, or to total cost of renting a vehicle.

Silver Sands public beach in Duncan's Bay is a very quiet and very well kept secret. We were most often the only people on this beach. It is a stunning beach, honestly incredible. Be sure to attend Leroy's at the east end of the beach on Saturday nights for good local, live reggae. The vendors selling artwork and goods adjacent to Leroy's are generally great and won't hassle you anywhere near what you would encounter at a busier beach or attraction. You can get custom orders in a few days and the quality of work is good.

Bottom line: Palm Villas is an unbeatable holiday spot for those looking for a more authentic experience than the typical contrived and plastic environs of an all inclusive. It is quiet, safe and beautiful. Jennifer is a wonderful person. The location is central to both Montego Bay and Ocho Rios and all the activities they offer.
