Where to begin.I stayed at this wonderful condo for 11 glorious days.First off, my hosts, are sweet, beautiful people who live next door.They left me alone, but were there for conversation and guidance if desired.The condo was clean, well equipped, and had an air conditioner in the bedroom which I used every night.You open the ocean side doors, and you have a fantastic proximity and view of the Caribbean from the unit and balcony.I got the grocery recommendation from Gloria, stocked up and I was good to go.The store had every thing I needed.Being a first timer to Jamaica, I was leery of the security aspect of my stay.I can tell you, once I got to the condo complex it all vanished.There is a gate to drive through, as I rented a car, with a guard 24/7 that issues a parking pass so they know every vehicle.There are uniformed security patrolling the grounds, also 24/7.I got to know them, and they me, and we had many a conversation.Very comfortable.Mahogany beach is right next door for swimming and relaxing.They have a bar/BBQ and music almost daily, with chairs available from security.There is a catamaran cruise company located there for sunset cruises, etc.For venturing out during the day, I walked the main street of Ocho Rios quite often.I had access to the Cruise ship terminal to greet friends, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, sports bars, grocery shopping, and banking.When I had enough of the outside world, I came back to my little slice of Heaven.Peaceful, comfortable, and secure.As you can tell, I loved this vacation retreat.Everything associated with it was wonderful, and my dealings with the owners were smooth and easy.If you are looking for the resort experience, look elsewhere.If you are looking for peace, relaxation, ocean views and sounds, and close proximity to town, you have found your vacation spot.
Jamaica has been a favorite destination for our family since the 70's. We have now located our home away from home. This Ocho Rios condo is in an ideal location, it is clean, beautifully appointed and the owners are friendly and very helpful. We love to sit on the balcony and watch the cruise ships come in and then go to the beach for a relaxing day enjoying the warm water and soft Caribbean breezes. There are many activities you can participate in at the beach. Our three week stay each year is a must for us. We love the Jamacian people and food and look forward to enjoying our stay.
