                                The Villa surpassed our expectations. There was 8 adults, 1 child and 3 infants and at times we could not keep track of eveybody. The grounds were beautiful and we changed where we chose to relax just for a different breath taking view. The staff was amazing and took wonderful care of us. Raymon our driver made sure we felt safe at all times. Jamaica was was beautiful to tour cant wait to go back and explore more of the Island. You have to go snorkling it was awsome, so was snorkling. Hats off to Stephan for letting us enjoy a bit of heaven.

                                I highly recommend this wonderful villa. I've done a lot of traveling but I think this is the best vacation (with children) that I've ever had. We were so excited by the pictures on the website that we were worried we'd be disappointed...not a chance. It's even better than it appears on the site. Beautiful sandy beach, kayaks, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boards (all equipment in excellent equipment) pool, hot tub, very clean and well-maintained, and wonderful staff (including kitchen staff who prepare delicious meals). Games room perched under a cabana on cliff over the lagoon with comfortable couches and pool table, and large lounge area right on the water. Lots of room to spread out and roam about. We were accompanied by 3 small children and 4 teenagers and they were all well-occupied at the villa. Very high quality sites to visit within 5-30 minutes of the villa as well (climbing the falls, underground caves, tubing, were a few we tried). We were taken around by a very careful and helpful driver arranged by the villa owner; he made great suggestions including a simple and lovely restaurant following one excursion and a couple of markets that the kids enjoyed. Thank you for the wonderful vacation. We'll be back!

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                                The property was beautiful,comfortable, maintained well. The staff was incredible , very friendly, warm,accommodating. Carmen was an amazing cook,we had lobster didses that were delicious. Fresh pink snapper off the fishing boats. This was definitely a unique experience that should be on everyone's bucket list. There was snorkeling and kayaking right on the premises.the beach is beautiful. More than anything the people were terrific. Thank you Carmen, Cam ,Dell, Raymond and Winston for making our short stay memorable.

                                We were picked up by Raymond in a a brand new bus at the airport, with a big smile he welcomed us and loaded up the bus. The ride to the villa had an amazing scenic view. The villa was very private and situated on a beachfront which boasts the most amazing sunset I've ever seen. The best part was the care taken to accamodate our family which consisted of a 4 month baby girl and my 2 1/2 year old son. The bus had two baby seats, upon arrival we noticed a play yard and baby crib with new wipes and freshly washed covers. I also noticed the villa was child proofed with latch protectors and edge guards on the furniture. These details made us very comfortable. The staff was very attentive the pool was spotless, our clothes were washed daily and whatever we needed it was provided by the friendly staff. Besides the wonderful staff the amenities where phenomenal! Wifi, remote control air conditioning, kayaks, jet ski's, spear fishing, fishing rods, boat all were on the premises. There was always something fun to do whether I decided to snorkel or hang out on the dock and sip on a Margarita with my wife it was all possible. The bus was very convenient and we enjoyed all the local sites and sounds, Duns River Falls was a blast, Grotto Caves unforgettable and t he horseback riding was simply brilliant. By far the best trip ever. The only complaint is that we wish we've could of stood longer!

                                This was our fourth time visiting Hillcrest Villa and once again it did not disappoint. The house improves every time we go as the owner is constantly improving the property (e.g., over the years he's added a hot tub, pool table, living area at the water under the gazebo, etc.). He's currently doing a large expansion of the private beach at the house. The staff is fantastic and feel like part of our family. Our three young children look forward to the trip each year. The meals are fantastic with fresh food every day including fish caught daily by the local fishermen rowing by. The location, half way between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, is perfect for all your sightseeing/adventuring needs. That being said, with the private pool, snorkeling, private beach around the corner, sea kayaks, etc, we hardly ever leave the property. Without doubt, we plan to go back a fifth time.

                                Recommended for: Families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                                Having travelled to Jamaica numerous times , this was the most enjoyable stay I'm the last 20 years. The private oceanfront villa is perfect for couples and large families and can accommodate either. - the staff cater to your every need and are such nice people, they will become your friends before your first day is over. - the villa and separate guesthouse are equipped with all amenities usually associated with 5 star hotels. The Owner and the staff are really what make this villa special. They will even wave the local fisherman over to the villas private ocean side dock so you can buy your own really fresh "catch of the day " for dinner . We will go back many more times ! Thank you Stefano and the entire crew for a wonderful time on Jamaica !

                                I decided to surprise my wife for her birthday with an extended weekend getaway to Jamaica. I was looking into Hotels but opted to go for something different and try a Villa. Never staying at a Villa so I was a little skeptical. Much to our surprise the Villa lifestyle far surpasses any hotel we've stayed in. Upon arrival, we were met at the airport by our driver Raymond. We were then taken to this beautiful cliff side Villa nestled on a corner property with its own private beach. Once we got there we were introduced to the staff of 4. It was perfect. It was quiet, private, clean, and filled with amenities. Its definitely awesome to have your own private beach, pool table, pool, hot tub, kayak's, cook (an awesome one at that, who whipped up some great Jamaican dishes that we enjoyed) and house keepers. We absolutely loved the layout of the house. Although there was just 2 of us we can easily see going back with our family and friends. With 5 bedrooms, there is plenty of space to enjoy the Villa without getting in each others way. Our driver was very helpful in taking us souvenir shopping and sightseeing. Everything was very close by, about 30 minutes. The best part was that the whole trip was set up over email and phone, directly with the owner of the property, Stefan. He was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with, not to mention extremely knowledgeable of the island. All and all, our trip was perfect! We will be back.

                                Well we "JUST" returned from our 7 day trip to Hillcrest Villa - Jamaica. This was the first vacation in over 10 years where we could get"all our kids together at the same I must say I was a little nervous as we rented a home in another island last fall and was so disappointed when we arrived. So on this trip I did speak to some of the previous guests and also asked alot of questions from Stefano (and THANK YOU for being so patient with me Stefano!) He answered quickly all my questions. We arrived on the 19th of March, Raymond the driver was waiting right outside as we were told. It was about a 40 min drive to the Villa...and once we arrived...well I would really have a hard time explaining. I can say...the pictures are EXACTLY as the Villa looks...but it is 100 times better in person! We met the rest of the family (staff)...Ms Carmen, Dell, Casanda and Winston. They made us feel comfortable immediately upon arrival! This home is situated so well that with 8 of us there we felt like we could do just about anything alone...some of our kids might be playing pool..some snorkeling, some kayaking, some napping, some just chatting with Dell and Ms Carmen about the food and how to prepare it.... The water front was probably our most favorite place, the way they have the rocks to keep the area out front calm...we would sit for hours and just listen to the waves. The snorkeling right there around the rocks was awesome...the kayaking onto the reef and beyond was unbelievable...watching the fisherman each morning and the ships in the distance at night.... The meals were absolutely wonderful...we tried many of the authentic dishes and everyone was MORE then content and filled each meal..and we have some picky eaters! The home itself is beautiful...the marble floors, high ceiliings, full spray showers...but even with the luxary it was very comfortable and after a few days you feel so relaxed and at home. We thought we would be bored as we have a very active family - our kids are 17-22-29...and we were worried that not being at a all inclusive (as we've always done), might have them stir crazy after a couple days....we were SO WRONG! All of our kids had absolutely the time of their lives and could not stop saying it through the wonderful it was. Stefano...your home is gorgeous - thank you for sharing it with us. Your family (staff) were so wonderful to our family - thank them all for us! We hope to be back next year for sure

                                Our stay at Hillcrest Villas was so over the top great that I didn’t want to share it with anyone. But Stefano and the team of Ms. Carmen, Cheryl, Dell, Winston and Raymond do such a good job of making you feel at home and a part their family that I had to share it. We landed a few days before Christmas 2012 and stayed a total of 8 days Sat. to Sat. We were two families 9 in total, 5 of our kids 15 – 21 yrs old and 4 adults. We were picked up at the airport by Raymond in a 12 passenger van and he safely delivered us to Hillcrest Villa (Montego Bay Air Port 40 minute drive). We then started one of the top 10 vacations of my adult life and I have been all of over the world. The Villa is outstanding, rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the food was fantastic each and every day. Plenty to do on the property, pool area is great with plenty of chairs, cushions and towels, music etc. Stefano has snorkel gear (snorkeling was great) and kayaks, the downstairs dock area is an added plus to this property. It is set up for easy access to the ocean and another great get- a- way spot to just relax away from the upstairs. The property is kept pristine with a few “Happy Nappy areas”; we even decorated a tree in the front yard with Dell on Christmas Eve. We went Zip-Lining and River Tubing within 20 minutes’ drive from the Villa. The rest of the time enjoyed just hanging at the Villa. My buddy Angelo and I experienced shopping at the local fish and vegetable markets with Raymond and Cheryl one morning and afternoon, a great experience. We all plan to return frequently, it is really a great destination for families, adults anyone who wants to just get away from the rat race. Sandy and Gang.
