Look no Farther - You Just Found the Place to Stay in Ocho Rios for the Best Price

  • 5 of 5

WOW – what a view!!! If it’s morning coffee or evening star gazing, the view from the balcony is remarkable. The photos do not do it justice. The condo is clean and nicely decorated, particularly the main living area. It has a great beach feel. The WiFi should meet anyone’s needs. There is a very nice flat screen TV in the main living area. We ate in some nights and out on others. Should you choose to eat in, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a nice meal. If you choose to venture out for your meal, Belinda our very kind hostess, had some fantastic recommendations. They ranged from the very casual, authentic cuisine to finer dining. Take her advice, you will not be disappointed. The condo does have air-conditioning but we did not use it as the nights in early March were cool enough to sleep with the windows open and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf. The beach is just a few minutes walk away. It is very nice and clean. Most days there were very few people there. One of the very nice things is that our time was not interrupted by peddlers trying to sell us things as we relaxed on our beach chairs. In terms of security, we felt very safe. Not only are guards posted at critical points on the property they make regular patrols. I would highly recommend using a driver to take you to and from the airport. We were fortunate enough to have Michael as our driver. He seemed to know everyone and everything. We felt completely safe in his hands. In fact, we called upon his services during the week to take us on some of our adventures.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in Ocho Rios for a fantastic price look no farther – you have found it. We will be back!

Great place to stay in Ocho Rios!

  • 5 of 5

We loved having this condo during our time in Jamaica. The property was clean, secure and comfortable, with a peaceful setting and spectacular balcony view. Belinda, the owner, was a great resource person, with a quick response to any questions or issues and a genuine wish to help. We loved staying here!

Idyllic Waterfront Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

I spent a total of six weeks at this property and would return in a heartbeat! It was just what I needed. I spent many idyllic days and evenings lounging in the property, including evenings where I sat on the balcony and just gazed at the stars. Its many plus points are that it was:

Clean (thanks Dawn)

Comfortable

Relaxing

Well-equipped (it has a fully-stocked kitchen plus all the 'little things' have been thought of, including books, games, mosquito coils, clothes hangers, a clothes airer and even clothes pegs)!

Professionally managed

Secure

Quiet

Conveniently located (maximum 10 minutes walk to central Ochi)

Adjacent to a great beach

Additionally, it has:

A friendly, responsive owner (thanks Belinda)

Awesome views and well-maintained grounds

Reliable wifi, hot water, and air conditioning

A spacious bedroom with good hanging space and awesome sea views

Plentiful parking

I definitely intend to make this my Ochi 'home from home'!

Beautiful, comfortable..a perfect vacation spot...

  • 5 of 5

The Caribe condo was light and airy, with a wonderful "Beach" and "vacation" feeling to the decor. We loved the clear, full view of the sea from the living room and bedroom. The king-sized mattress was a dream, especially for someone like me...a fussy sleeper. Security at the condo complex was excellent and we felt safe and secure at all times. The walk to the beach took only minutes, and we usually went swimming at least twice a day. While we cooked often in the well-equipped kitchen, there are so many wonderful places nearby to eat, everything from very decent fast food just around the corner to fine dining in the nearby downtown. Belinda had provided everything a vacationer might want, including extra toothbrushes and toothpaste. We enjoyed happy hour out on the deck or watching the news on the large living room TV. During our three-week stay we rented cars twice to travel along the coast and inland to see the rich vegetation and interesting ports and small villages, as well as to connect with some of the Jamaican people. I definitely look forward to my next vacation at Caribe Condos in Ocho Rios, Jamaica!!

one of my favorite Jamaica properties

  • 5 of 5

First I want to thank Belinda for her kindness and availability. The apartment was so spacious and comfy and was exactly as the photos claimed it would be! The apartment was so cute and beachy and maintained perfectly. the wifi was also great. I had a couple work meetings that I had to Skype in for and I never had a problem with the wifi. I have stayed at Carib Apartments at a few different apartments and this one was easily the most comfortable. I loooove the view of the ocean and the security of the property which is why I prefer Carib to any other place to stay in Jamaica. I brought my sister there for the first time and she was so impressed with how comfortable and quiet it was. Ms. Carmen, the cleaning lady did such a great job keeping the house clean and she went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. I was so sad when it was time to leave and head back to NJ but I am happy to say I will be returning in a couple months for another week at this great apartment. Belinda was available to me every day via text or chat to answer any questions about local things I may need. To me the best part of my stay was our guide. I have another friend that owns an apartment at Carib and she recommended a guy that she knows and refers to her guests. He was amazing! His name is Levene and he literally did everything! He cooked for my sister and I every night, he drove us to the good grocery store whenever we wanted, he took us to different beaches and sites and hung out with us every day. the food was awesome and he made us fresh cucumber juice every day.. I love this place and cannot wait to go back. Also you should try some of the water activities at the beach on the property... very reasonably priced and such a fun time.
