There are some people that miraculously "die" but are brought back to life. A few have described getting a glimpse of "heaven" and how peaceful and serene it was. Well....I think that just happened to me and my family.
Crystal Cove is just that....a little slice of heaven. The location is so perfect and beautiful by being right on the water. It is very serene, quiet and peaceful. Many of the Ocho Rios attractions are in very close proximity and easy to get to. The house is amazing with gorgeous woodwork and lovely décor. You feel like you have stepped into a House Beautiful magazine. It is very comfortable and welcoming. The grounds and landscaping are lush with tropical plants and the huge Sea Grape tree in the middle is outstanding. The property has so many places to sit and relax for reading, having a cup of yummy Jamaican coffee, a drink or for just doing nothing but enjoying the view.
The staff is remarkable. They were all so kind, helpful, fun and attentive. They made us feel right at home the minute we stepped through the door. The food was wonderful....thank you Sue and Honeylen. The house was so well kept....thank you Dian. The outdoor areas were maintained so nicely...thank you Shawn. We always felt safe and secure...thank you Keith. And, of course, thank you Arthur for having this unbelievable property available for a most memorable vacation. AND....we also enjoyed "Captain" the resident parrot.
This trip was to celebrate birthdays for our family. Our little group of six included my two grandsons (5 & 8). The place was perfect for them. Easy access to the wonderful water and perfect to keep an eye on them at all times. We enjoyed some local trips to Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mt., a catamaran sail with snorkeling, Evitas Restaurant, golf, shopping and the best massages under the gazebo with the waves gently lapping the bulkhead!
I would certainly recommend Crystal Cove. It was truly one of our greatest vacations. We will all remember our time together at this fabulous place. It was very special and we were sad to leave our new friends. We hope to return someday.
