2/10 Poor

Rating Stay
Hot water was turned off, Internet connection was poor, TV was in the room and we were able to watch Net Flix one night, otherwise non-existent. The food and the staff were excellent! The bathroom was dirty, had a lot of mold in the shower. Fridge in the room but not plugged in. I left a day early because I was so disappointed and would have left before if I had not paid my money.

Villa with private beach
My wife booked this villa for me for a quiet time. Upon my arrival there were baby nappies hanging on the premisses. Upon entering the room, the air conditioner was off and out of reach making the room hot, (was told that the remote was broken), fridge unplug, Television broken, cobweb in room, terrace dirty, no cover on iron board and a dirty couch in room. The only good thing was the chef, who came and apologize. I made a call to the owner who stated that her advertizement did not refer to television access. Owner need to to take responsibility and remodel place and get better help to take care of place while she is in the state.

2/10 Poor

One day brief stay - Not the best spot
The bed sheets and pillows were not up to hotel standards; Very old. AC in room did not work much. The beach is very rocky. Path is quite overgrown and not maintained. Room is small and cramped with 2 queen sized beds, not much room. There was a stench in the room, prob due to bad plumbing. The sound of the waves was definitely a plus though.

Peaceful and quiet Villa by the Ocean
This was my favorite place in Jamaica as it was close to so many things but tucked away in very private area. We spent lots of time walking on the black sand beach picking up special rocks, coral and a few shells. We went rafting on the Rio Grande, swimming in the Blue Lagoon, Winifred Beach, ate Jerk Chicken at Boston Bay and a little shopping in Port Antonio. The people running the Villa are delightful, friendly and absolutely wonderful. The breakfasts were delicious as was all the food that Tall Man (the chef) made for us. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for the hospitality.

Nice N very close to the beach.
Was beautiful nice and quite my husband and I enjoyed more than the kids I think. Breakfast was good too & the staff very nice the only problem was water leaked out of the shower to the bathroom floor, didn't like that they stored their supplies in the room even tho the were polite about it they had to come in to get something otherwise its very nice and I plan to go back again in the future.

By the Sea
Palatial sea-front home, lovely grounds and accommodating host. Master suite on second floor with terrace overlooking the sea provided privacy, a comfortable mattress, mosquito netting (which wasn't needed) sitting area inside and on the terrace, and a quiet air conditioner. Bathroom had all the conveniences but finishing was rustic. Location is about 4 miles west of Port Antonio in St Margaret's Bay where Rio Grande river flows into the sea--a bit confusing for us driving from the south and around the east end of the island. Peter, our host, prepared dinner for us on short notice on arrival and arranged our "rafting on the Rio Grande", a wonderful and interesting tour on a bamboo raft with Captain Trevor polling downriver. Some Rapids and white water which I would describe as gentle. Overall, a pleasant experience.

Good view, room could be better
Our stay was okay. The room was a little dark and the AC didn't work as well. Breakfast in the morning was just ok. The location is nice, though just a little hard to find. Could have been better.
