Morning Glory Villas Near Dunns River And Dolphin Cove

Picturesque property with friendly staff

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely weekend getaway at Morning Glory villas. The villas are clean and nicely equipped including air-conditioned bedrooms and WiFi, and we can't say enough about how beautiful the gardens are. The property is located in a gated community next to The Riu Hotel, about 10 minutes from Ocho Rios, so it is safe and conveniently located. The beach is a short walk (about 5 minutes) and is good for a quick swim but underwhelming since it is in Jamaica, known for its beautiful beaches. The restaurant on the beach, Bamboo Blu, was not our cup of tea. However, we are native Jamaicans, so we tend to prefer authentic/traditional Jamaican cuisine over the fusion style dishes offered at Bamboo Blu. The hosts at Morning Glory, Claude and Geraldine, are very pleasant and accommodating. What was most remarkable about our stay was the excellent care and attention we received from the staff, Margaret and Boston. They were like family by the end of our stay. Thank you for your hospitality!

Wonderful vacation, beautiful villas, lovely hosts

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 3 week holiday in Jamaica staying at the Morning Glory Villas and can honestly describe it as a truly splendid experience. We were a large group of 10 including 4 children.

Upon our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Mr & Mrs Burton who made our stay a very pleasant one. The villas contained booklets with instructions along with very useful information. We felt very comfortable and well taken care of and looked after. We must mention that when my husband wanted to watch football Euro finals, Mr Burton graciously added the sports channels to our villa TV so that he didn't miss it. That was a big plus in our book.

The Morning Glory Villa description was completely accurate in terms of location and layout. The villas and grounds of the property are exactly as seen in the photos. The villas were cleaned daily by the wonderful Margaret and the grounds immaculately maintained by the caretaker Boston and a very hard working gardener. When we provided the ingredients, Margaret prepared very delicious meals for us at reasonable rates.

We would recommend this property without reservation and would love to return soon. If you are considering this accommodation, you will not be disappointed.

The Mammee Bay Beach club which includes Bamboo Blu restaurant is about 3 mins walk away. They are really great but do get busy when Cruise ships arrive in Ocho Rios. However, the beach gets quiet again after 3pm on Cruise ship days. Dunns River, Mystic Mountain and Dolphin Cove are all nearby and it takes about 15 mins drive to get into the town of Ocho Rios.

The only thing we would change about our vacation is that we would hire a car to do the small trips into town and to the nearby attractions. As a large group, our airport transfer and long trips were arranged with the lovely Angie and her husband Clinton introduced to us by Mr Burton.

An amazing time had by all.

The best place to stay in Ocho Rios

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here and we loved it. It was very well kept and very quiet. Everyone working their was very nice and helpful. We could come and go as we like. The beach was across the street, dunns river falls was 9 mins away. Definatelly going back. Having a ride would make your stay even more enjoyable.

Beautiful and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

During our stay we stayed at "Over The Moon" one of the Morning Glory Villas. Mr. Burton, His wife, Margaret the housekeeper and Boston the care taker all took care of us. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel at home. It was nice to be within a short walking distance to the beach. The villas are well maintained and very clean. The pictures that are posted are exactly what you see and get. We enjoyed our stay and hated to go at the end of our vacation. We can truly say that we have new friends at Morning Gloria Villas. We can't wait to return next year to Morning Glory Villas. A great time was had by all.

Owner's Response: Hi Girls Thank you very much. We're so very pleased that you enjoyed your time here at Morning Glory Villas. We say that Mammee Bay Estate is perfect for those who want a relaxing location but with easy access to the beach, Ocho Rios, shops, and attractions etc. But the very best element of our villa is the hospitality of a good team of staff. Thank you for describing your experience of this. We all look forward to welcoming you back. Claude & Geraldine
