  • A perfect winter get-away

    "This was our first trip to Jamaica and it was wonderful. We have two small children and wanted help with the cooking and cleaning but we aren't the all-inclusive resort types. This was perfect for us. The staff were wonderful. Kind and genuine people who taught us about Jamaican foods, plants and customs. It was amazing to have such wonderful meals without lifting a finger. Miss Jen and Miss Medittta are excellent cooks. Raniel, Danville and Aman were generous guides and took great care of us on the crazy roads and shared local stories and politics with us. We had delightful trips up the Black River, to the Pelican Bar and to YS falls. The pool is just outside and it is a short walk down to the beach. The views from the villa are panoramic. You have a view of the sea anywhere you sit. I just moved from lounge chair to lounge chair. This was he most relaxing vacation I have ever had. Treasure Beach is a bit of a trek from the airport but well worth it. If you are looking for a vacation off the beaten path this is the place."

  • Had an amazing time.

    "We were two families sharing the villa. 4 adults and 5 children. The location is great and being that it's a villa u get the resort staff but privacy of a home with a huge private pool. Beach access is a snap even though you are crossing a major road. Drivers actually stopped several times to let us cross. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it really should have an outdoor bbq grill. I am already trying to figure out how to get back to this villa. Negril is awesome and this villa is right near all the action. Loved all the spots on the beach. Very friendly staff"

  • Perfect Birthday Getaway!

    "My 60th birthday was at the end of December and we spent a wonderful week at Great Escape. What an awesome way to celebrate this milestone. My husband and I met friends on 12/28 at the Jamaica airport and thanks to Mark's tip, we were expedited thru customs by VIP Attractions (the extra $50 was SOOOOO worth it). The ride to Great Escape was a treat, with Rambo driving and being an entertaining tour guide. We made quick stop at the market in Montego Bay to stock up on snacks and adult beverages and then a stop at Border Jerk for some great chicken. What a wonderful start to an amazing vacation. The Villa was even better than we expected. Two bedrooms and two baths and a great pool (expertly maintained by Nevil) at the main house and the clubhouse at the beach was PERFECT for watching the sunset!! And Wifi!!!!! Shane prepared delicious meals for us and his rum punch should be bottled! We took a few (not many) trips to nearby attractions -- Frankly, being at the Villa was so perfect, we really didn't feel the desire to go anywhere. We did take a boat trip to the Pelican Bar and down the Black River to Sister Lou's......Captain Ted was amazing! The sea was quite choppy, but he navigated the small boat expertly. Pansy cleaned for us every day and even did some laundry for us. All and all, the combo of the villa, the staff and the laid back Jamaican culture made for a PERFECT birthday!!!"

  • Amazing!

    "Golden Sun Villa is summed up in one word: AMAZING! We went to Jamaica on our honeymoon hoping for a romantic getaway. Before our trip started the owner emailed us a full list of activities to do and things to know when there. All of the recommendations were great and saved us a lot of time looking into things to do. He answered all of our specific questions and was a pleasure to deal with in all regards. Once we got to Jamaica we rented a car and had a beautiful one hour drive to the villa. We were greeted by the very friendly staff and Franz the grounds keeper showed us around the gorgeous grounds. Larna the cook was exceptionally helpful and very kind. We had her purchase all of our food before getting there, so we arrived to a fully stocked fridge, with delicious fruits, and enough food for her to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner for us for the week stay. Chelsea the housekeeper/maid was a delight as well. She cleaned up after us so we never had to lift a finger. She even made a floral arrangement on our bed every morning, very tropical! The house is very spacious with a cozy master bedroom. The lounge area has a TV with couches around to hang out after a long day out. The absolute best part of the villa is the backyard. It has an unbelievably scenic background with the ocean crashing against the shore and palm trees blowing in the wind. Our favorite part of the backyard is the stunning pool. We would stay outside for hours at night swimming under thousands of sparkling stars. It is truly a spectacular sight we won’t soon forget. Other notable parts of the grounds was the all you can eat sea grapes that grow next to the house, the almond tree on the grounds which we got to eat from, and the total privacy we had. We had the time of our lives there and hope others can enjoy it as well. If you are planning a trip to Jamaica I would definitely recommend staying here."
