VILLA MARA REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 19 (10 adults & 9 Children the youngest being 10 months and the oldest being 14) had a wonderful two week vacation at Villa Mara in Mammee Bay near Ocho Rios located on the North Coast of Jamaica. Villa Mara is exquisite and absolutely beautiful. It is well laid out and ideal for large families. All the bedrooms were extremely comfortable and located so that there is plenty of privacy. The bathrooms were modern and well equipped. Having one room available that sleeps six was ideal for our six grand daughters. The outdoor layout of the Villa made for a very relaxing two weeks, a very nice tennis court and basket ball hoop was well utilized by the younger adults. The covered lanai and extensive enclosed patio surrounding the pool suited our large group and we also enjoyed having our delicious meals in this covered area. Having the bar and refreshment also located in this area made it very convenient. The cushioned lounge chairs on the lawn between the beach and Villa set up under a large natural umbrella almond shade tree together with a cool ocean breeze provided a very relaxing atmosphere for reading or sometimes taking a “snooze”. The private white sand beach provided great snorkeling and swimming. Before dinner we enjoyed cocktails on the second floor verandah overlooking the pool and beach, enhanced by a nice ocean breeze. Mammee Bay is a gated community with 24 hour per day security. We went for walks in the evenings, some went jogging during the day and at no time was there ever the slightest concern for our safety. We have mentioned the physical property with all its charm and beauty. However with the contributions of a very dedicated, friendly and talented staff under the fine leadership of Miss Hazel our vacation was exceptional and “truly a dream come true” resulting in many “tears” on the morning of departure. On arrival we were greeted, introduced and welcomed by Miss Hazel and her entire staff. The meals and service for our two week stay were outstanding, with the presentation of each dish equivalent to or better than most highly rated restaurants in the Monterey/ Carmel area where we reside. Being Jamaican by birth most of our menu comprised of local dishes gracefully presented and very delicious. The Villa was always spotless; laundry was done daily and returned to the respective rooms. We highly recommend Villa Mara for a family vacation it will live up to or exceed all your expectations of a get away in “A Jamaican Paradise"

THE WEEK THAT I LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST EACH YEAR.

  • 5 of 5
This was the second week that I have spent at Villa Mara. It was like coming home!
We were met at the front door with welcomes and hugs.
Last year I thought that the stay was amazing - this year - it was even better. I don't know how the staff did it but they remembered little details about our likes and were right on top of everything. The beautiful house has the atmosphere of real Jamaica and I must say that I got the back to boarding school feeling when we had to leave.
My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters accompanied me on this trip. Every one had a blast and felt most pampered. My grand daughters both cried when they left.
Many very, very happy memories have been made at Villa Mara. For that week we were made to feel that it was our home.

100% FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5
My family of 15 persons (ages 6 months - 66) thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Mara. The photos on VRBO don't do justice to this absolutely beautiful villa. The bedrooms are situated so that there is plenty of privacy; the bedding is very clean and comfortable; bathrooms are modern. The outdoor living layout of the villa made for a very relaxing week, and the covered lanai and extensive patio surrounding the pool suited our large group very nicely. The kids loved the pool's slide, and many also enjoyed snorkeling in the ocean. Oh, did I mention the picnic tables and cushioned lounge chairs under huge, shady trees on the soft grass alongside the beach? Again.....just fantastic.

Even better than the villa's amenities, though, was the extremely friendly and talented staff. Our every need was tended to. The food and service was fantastic (we have actually asked for recipes), and the villa was always spotless. Our two young mothers loved the daily laundry service. Hazel, the house manager, made sure our vacation was a success.

Saying good-bye was made easier just knowing that we would return in the future. We, obviously, highly recommend Villa Mara (just don't try to book it when we want to go!).

BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Besides Villa Mara being an exquisite property, the staff made us feel welcome and at home every minute! Our large family will be dreaming of this vacation for many years!
Hazel manages a large household beautifully and with utmost professionalism and calm. We know it's not an easy job with a house full of guests such as our family was to Villa Mara. She graciously took care of any requests we put forward. Her hospitality is a 10+.
Collette managed our mealtimes (3 per day, all 7 days!), with patience and always a lovely smile. I should retract the 3 meals per day, as it was really 6, the children ate separately!
Deborah's skills in the kitchen are amazing. Every meal was better than the last! She delightfully honored our many menu requests and surprised us with awesome local flavor as well. No one has stopped commenting on her family's recipe for Date Cake!
Kemar tended to our many outdoor needs with such friendliness and professionalism. Plus he will mix a magnificent cocktail!
Junior's groundskeeping, constantly, keeps Villa Mara SO spectacular (even with the couple days of rain we experienced!). His skills on the grill were much appreciated too!
Nellie and Claudette kept the lovely bedrooms and living areas sparkling and organized which was no easy task with all of us around, at all times (especially with the little ones afoot!). They did so quietly and with much pride in their work.
Paulette has probably never done as much laundry until our clan showed up at Villa Mara! It was so nice to have our clothing laundered daily and sent home clean too.
They are all a reflection of the goodness of the Jamaican people and we are and will continue to tell family and friends of our fantastic time at Villa Mara.

AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my family, a group of 17 people of all different ages, spent the most marvelous, relaxing holiday together where we were treated like royalty and pampered by the warm, friendly and efficient staff.
We had to be careful we didn´t put on too much weight - delicious gourmet food. It will definitely be a must for us next year for although we were 17 there is so much space we were able to be together yet not on top of each other, we highly recomend it!!
