My husband and I travelled to Negril in January 2015. We stayed at the Wild Grape Villa, one of the three properties at Sea Grape Villas. I have nothing but excellent comments about this location.
(1) prior to our trip, Marc (the owner of the property) was excellent in responding to all of my(many) questions. Ask him anything!
(2) Our flight from Toronto to Montego Bay was significantly delayed. It was easy to contact Marc to let him know, so that he could advise the driver who picked us up at the airport. Donovan, the driver, was there waiting for us when we finally arrived. He was an excellent host and gave us useful information about the island during our ride. I left my passport in his vehicle, but didn't notice it was missing until our 2nd day. The staff at Sea Grape called Donovan to confirm that he was holding onto it for me until he drove us back to the airport at the end of our stay. I felt confident that it was in good hands.
(2) Juicy (the cook) - Juicy is a sweet and wonderful man. He brought us delicious Jamaican coffee and toast with Jam each morning. Juicy also cooked two dinners for us. You MUST try the fish in ginger sauce. YUMMMM. Juicy also provided us with snorkelling gear so we could explore the ocean in our backyard! you MUST do this.
(3) Christine (housekeeping) is a beautiful person inside and out. She made the place feel fresh each day. We talked about my braids and had a laugh.
(4) Bentley (grounds-keeper) is very sweet. He would set up our lounge chairs each morning near the ocean, and bring them in at night. He always said hello and made you feel safe, knowing that he was watching the grounds.
(5) The grounds of Sea Grape Villas is very lush, and private. The moment you enter the sea grapes gate, you are set apart from the busy streets of Negril.
(6) There are mosquitos (at night), so be sure to bring OFF with a strong deet percentage.
(7) My husband and I were looking for a private and romantic vacation - Wild Grape Villa was perfect. We even went skinny dipping in the ocean during our last two days. Very private. I think the staff could sense our need for privacy as well, as they were in and out quickly, respecting our alone time.
(8) My husband, who was not an island vacationer (he prefers big cities) was very impressed with our villa. I think he's converted to the island way of life. :) we will definitely be back.
Thank you Marc!
My husband and I spent a week at Seagrape villas. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Wild Grape Villa which had outstanding views from the veranda. We are a couple in our 50's and didn't want the crowded resort atmosphere. Wild Grape was everything we had hoped for in a relaxing carefree vacation. We woke up every morning to fresh coffee and toast, which Juicy left on the veranda table. Some mornings we even ordered fresh fruit or eggs. We let Juicy fix all our evening meals for us. We ate lunch at a few places, but really preferred Juicy's cooking and his very reasonable prices. One evening after returning to the Villa late from an all day tour, Juicy still had our dinner prepared for us and served it with a smile! Juicy will fix anything you ask for if he can get it; one evening we even had fresh lobster he had caught that day! There was always more food than the two of us could eat. Christina did a wonderful job of keeping the place looking nice and we always had fresh flowers from the garden in vases throughout the villa. We didn't notice cockroaches like one reviewer mentioned or many bugs at all, which is surprising since you are in the tropics so close to the ocean. Mosquitos were not two bad in early June; however I did spray myself with deet and Christina sprayed the rooms for us each day. We also had some small crabs that would come and visit a few evenings on the deck, but Lucky and Brownie the property dogs would usually bark and scare them off! It was really fun to watch. Brownie and Lucky were our guards every night and always there to greet us when we opened up in the morning. Take dog treats!!! I felt very safe, especially with Bentley patrolling the grounds at night. The entire staff at Seagrape was wonderful. We spent most of our time at Seagrape just relaxing and taking in the view on our private deck and there was a private walk to the sea with a ladder to the ocean. We did take a day tour to the Black River, YS Falls and Appleton Rum Factory. Our tour guide was Donivan for the day and I would HIGHLY recommend using him. He stopped along the way and got us sugar cane, papaya, mangos, allspice, and pointed out many interesting sights. He picked us up from the airport when we arrived and took us back to the airport when we left. I would definitely us him again! Our entire time at the Villa was outstanding and we will stay there again if we get the chance to go back to Negril!
Seagrape is an ideal location to relax. The sound of the ocean, the sea breeze and the frogs provide for great nighttime entertainment. There is a ladder to the ocean, with a great snorkel area. We saw a number of fish, including one lionfish, near Seagrape's ladder entrance to the ocean. There is a (mostly) private tanning area right outside the front door. The coffee service to your veranda is a great way to start the day. Juicy, Bentley and Christine are very helpful and made the stay that much better.
We rented a car but there always seemed to be a number of taxis driving in the area. There is a market across the street and another up the road from which we purchased essentials. We also purchased from a fruit stall close by. We found it beneficial to rent a car to explore as well as go to the larger markets.
I am writing this from Seagrape, listening to the ocean and frogs, wishing I did not have to leave.
We stayed at Wild Grape for Christmas vacation, and this was the best vacation ever!
I have been to 11 countries, and this vacation in Jamaica has been my favorite. The house is beautiful, with ocean breezes and wonderful views. The staff is great, and we miss Juicy's cooking already! We can't wait to come back. Thanks for such a wonderful vacation!
When we first contacted Marc, he was very informative and we felt good about reading many excellent reviews. I spent a week at the Wild Grape with my husband. I had never been to Jamaica so this was all new to me. We were greeted first of all by Donovan at the airport, which was nice after our flight. We then were greeted by Juicy (cook),Bentley (grounds keeper) and Christine (house keeper). Our villa was very clean,very private and we were able to enjoy our first sunset of many. We have traveled and this vacation by far was the most relaxing. Sitting on your own veranda watching, and listening to the ocean is wonderful. We had Juicy prepare dinner, which was superb! The food was fresh and the portions were huge. It was very convenient to have breakfast, lunch or dinner anytime we did not feel like leaving the villa. There were also two dogs on the premises, Lucky and Blackie. They were so sweet, we took treats for them. The views are breathtaking any time of the day. We were close enough to walk to nearby places or take a quick taxi. I also learned quickly to use the net, near dark the mosquitos do come out. We are planning a trip back at the end of the year to take our daughter. We highly recommend the Sea Grape Villas!
I traveled to Jamaica for the first time and this was my first stop on my 10 day tour of the island. This is a private and secluded place but close enough to the town. I had my own car but if you don't, plan on getting a taxi into town. It is very spacious and clean. It is for simple people who can appreciate spectacular views, the tranquility, and the nice water that you can dive into anytime you wish. It has 2 wonderful outdoor showers that are private and you can enjoy the sun while taking a nice warm shower out in nature. Don't worry, it also has an indoor shower. There is a market across the street where you can buy things that you may need in the kitchen. There is also a very gentlemen on the premises that will cook or assist you with any requests. This is a great place for families or just going solo. If you plan on staying in Negril and want a cozy and private tropical paradise all to yourself...this is the place! I will definitely return again.
