WE HAVE AIR -CONDITIONING!!!!! NOT ALL PALMYRA CONDOS DO!
When I first got to the apartment in the Palmyra, I found myself amazed by the beauty and luxury with which it was built. But then, after being there for a couple of hours, I found so much more. I found that the people were welcoming and open, very attentive and helpful, trying every moment to make my experience the best. I felt home, warmth, and then I realized that this was the closest feeling to being in Paradise on earth. The apartment itself is beautiful, the view is amazing, you can just sit on the balcony for a while and get lost in the ocean and the palm trees view. Then there is the private beach, with all the mixtures of blues and greens, and the water is always warm by the sun shinning all day long, it really makes you want to get a splash.
The Pool and the Jacuzzi are perfectly located in the middle of the first and second tower, making the ocean view the main attraction; you can forget about everything else, sitting in the Jacuzzi relaxed looking at the horizon and the Gazebo located half way inside the beach.
They ask me to write about the property in two paragraphs, and these are the things that come to my mind when I think of it. I know you will feel the same way and I can't wait for you to enjoy as much as I do when I visit this place.
YES WE ARE HOME SAFELY AND WE DID ENJOY YOUR CONDO.THE UNIT WAS CLEAN AND THE BEACH WAS BEAUTIFUL.WE HAD SOME INTERESTING ADVENTURES FOR SURE.THE PALMYRA WAS THE PERFERCT SPOT AS TWO WEDDING EVENTS WERE HELD IN THE VILLAS ABOVE HALF MOON GOLF COURSE AND THE WEDDING ITSELF WAS AT THE GREAT HOUSE AT ROSE HALL.
AS THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME IN A DEVELOPING COUNTRY I LEARNED SO MANY INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT JAMAICA AND THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE! THANKS FOR THE EXPERIENCE.
My family just returned from eight nights at the Palmyra and we had an incredible stay. This is a beautiful establishment, the beach and water are incredible and wonderful for kids. My children are three and six and the one bedroom was perfect to have our own space with two little ones. If you are searching for a very quiet and peaceful spot this is it. Most days we felt like we had the place to ourselves. The staff is very helpful and there seems to be a resurgence to the resort with a lot of work and upkeep going on. There are some minor things that could be noted that have been in previous posts: lights out in hallway, seaweed collection on beach could happen more frequently and elevator sensor not working. That being said none of these really had an impact on the time we had.
The grocery store is close by as is Rose Hall Shop,s and there are some free shuttles that will pick you up for dinner.
I cant say enough how much we loved our stay and hope to return one day.
I stayed for 2 weeks(Nov. 12-26) in Dr. Shea's condo and it was wonderful!
Very relaxing and pics are spot on. As other reviews state, resort is not finished but that was fine with me. No crowds and peaceful. The unit had everything we needed for making our own meals. The staff was so friendly! Derek was very informative and super nice!
Thank you Dr. Shea for a wonderful vacation. Your condo was great and I know once everything is up and going it will be amazing.
My first concern before going was if the condo would look like it did online - yes, it did! Dr. Shea had pretty much anything in the condo you need. (fully stocked kitchen outside of your own grocery purchases) The only thing that was a problem was the toilet. It was hit or miss if it would flush or not. Because the other 2 towers of the 3 aren't complete yet, the pool and beach area are very quiet but I didn't mind that at all! The location was great because you can catch a cab and go anywhere within 15 mins or so. I'd definitely go again! - Tina
We had an amazing and relaxing vacation. This was our first experience in Jamaica, the property owner, Thomas Shea, and employees that work at the Palmyra were very easy to communicate with. Helpful with advice and experience. There was a small group of employees we saw almost everyday, morning and night, they do a great job taking care of such a big property. Thank you for such a wonderful experience in allowing us to stay in your condo!
It is on the outskirts of town, if you are there to do anything other than the beach and the pool, a car would be your best option. If you are comfortable with a different style of driving. We opted out and the taxi rides where very expensive, 25 dollars round trip to the market, we don't travel around much so it wasn't worth it for us to rent a car. We did hire a taxi for the day threw Juta, and had a great driver named Richard he was awesome and took very good care of us! The Jamaican people are great people, I enjoyed the culture and history of Jamaica very much.

Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay this week in Jamaica, your condo had all the comforts of home.
Dr Shea's condo is just as described. We stayed one week in June 2016. We loved Palmyra. No one around except us, really. Saw perhaps 4 other guests. The pool bar was open on weekends. Served up a little jerk chicken and drinks. We utilized the pool which was clean. It is being cleaned with a portable pump (as another reviewer stated.) Palmyra is in a geat location just outside the center of Montego Bay, next to Hyatt Ziva. The condo and facility are not perfect. It's true, the third building is a dark and spooky shell. Areas of the condo and facility need attention to detail. Palmyra is under new ownership now so hopefully all issues will be addressed. We stayed in Sabal Palm, the main building. Appeared to be most occupied. Front desk was always staffed. Needed taxi and they were happy to help. We stocked the condo with local groceries from Mega Mart, about 20 mins away in center of Montego Bay. Leisurely walk from nearby shopping center and Scotchies (jerk restaurant) took about 40-45mins, by car its about 5-6mins. We cooked, did laundry and fully enjoyed the condo. The view from the balcony is a side view, so you'll see some of the garden/road below plus beach view. You can also see Rose Hall Great House from the balcony. The facility is truly beautiful. The beach is breathtaking. For us, we enjoyed the peacefulness. If you prefer lots of people around, music, party, this is not good location for you. We did day passes at nearby all inclusives and the kids 5,17,20yrs, preferred those locations because of activities offered (lots of other kids there too.) So if you have kids, keep that in mind. We loved the home away from home feel plus the value for our money! Thomas was easily accessible through email. No problems there. We will return.
