Fantastic ...but

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend this place for families or couples. Excellent communication from the Owner Neal although I think maybe an information leaflet or something similar would be helpful as I couldnt think of questions to ask, and by the time I did.....it was too late so we figured things out as we went along.

The hosts at the complex, Nigel & Renee are absolutely fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for us. We had a great time and even spent a fair bit of time socialising with them as if they were part of our group.

The only thing that marred our stay was the driver that generally does the airport pickups and trips around the island, JUNIOR. He is arrogant, extremely rude and false. He is extremely overpriced for his "trips". Around day 3 we questioned his costs for trips being a bit high, as an example he charged US$130 for the airport pickup (each way - approx 75 miles), for a trip to the Marley mausoleam (25 miles away) he wanted to charge us US$140. 1/3 distance $10 more?? (all we wanted to do was negotiate a more reasonable price) his reaction was to shove our money for the airport return at the end of the holiday (US$120 only - $10 short!) into my hand and told us to "do our own thing" then walked away. Nasty, nasty man. He has no people skills at all. We decided to do our own thing and despite warnings of danger, we hired a car, through the host Nigel. We had absolutely no issues driving around the island. You just need to be careful and stay clear of dodgy areas.

Overall we had a fantastic time, however my advice to visitors - Steer clear of Junior!

My advice to Neal, the owner - Cut Junior loose, he is gonna cost you money through lost bookings!

I would definately go back but only on the understanding that Junior stays away completely.

If it hadn't been for Juniors attitude etc, I would have given 5 stars.

Beautiful grounds

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, quiet settings. Friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Only issue I had was not having hot water majority of the time. Whenever I asked, it would get heated to a temperature I was comfortable with, but it was a hit and miss issue which I found annoying as I couldn't shower as and when I wanted. At one point, I waited almost an hour for the water to be warm enough for me. Both Nigel and Renee were very apologetic and switched the water heater on(I assume) as soon as I asked but I often couldn't get the early start I wanted at times. I queried the issue and was told that there appeared to be a problem with the solar panels and that someone was coming out to have a look at it. Apart from that hiccup, everything else was exactly as expected. I'd definitely book again and would recommend it to either family or friends.

Calm, Quiet, Clean

  • 4 of 5

Awesome vacation from start to finish Nigel and Renee were more than accommodating. I felt like I was at home if we needed anything they were just a step or text away. Nigel took us to some local spots on more than one occasion, even helped me to get fish which I brought back home with me. The apartment was spotless and spacious a really comfortable space. We walked to the local beach everyday and felt very safe doing so. It is definitely a gem at great price.

We found our Paradise

 

 

This apartment is so lovely. Could not fault anything. It is very clean and well maintained. Swimming pool was fantastic. Nigel and Junior were great fun and nothing was to much trouble for them. It is a few miles out of town but not a problem for us with taxis so cheap and we prefer a bit of peace and quiet anyway. Overall really impressed and would highly recommend.

SO PLEASED WE FOUND THIS PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5

Pimento Apartment was just about perfect and just what we needed. We had two wonderful weeks and we didn’t want to leave. Really cant fault any thing.

All the staff were friendly and made us feel at home from the start. We were in the pool first thing every morning it was so inviting. The apartment is very big and done out really nice, fanastic looking kitchen even though the Mrs was refusing to cook while on holiday. We were always eating out anyway and theres plenty of good cheap restaurants about and you can eat well for less than £5 each. We have stayed in a few hotels in Jamaica and nothing has been anywhere near as good as this. Loved it and we will be back ASAP!

Almond Tree Villa, Pimento and Tamarind apartments are situated together in the peaceful suburban district of Eltham, only a little over one mile from the nearest beach and three miles into the centre of Ocho Rios. Selbourne Gardens was highlighted in the Sunday Gleaner as one of the most desirable places to live in and around Ocho Rios and many of our neighbours are returning residents. 'Ochi' is a splendid major tourist resort with an impressive array of hotels, restaurants, bars and night life. The market is well worth a visit with its huge selections of exotic fruits, fresh produce and fish. Other nearby tourist attractions include the famous Dunns River Falls, Prospect Plantation and Chukka Cove for horse riding, Dolphin Cove where you can swim with the dolphins, Island Village, Bob Marley's birthplace at Nine Mile and playwright Noel Coward's house Firefly with its spectacular view over Port Maria. The villa is within easy reach of several very beautiful beaches.
