Recent Discovery Bay property reviews

  • Looking for the perfect holiday - here it is

    "I spent a week here with my husband and 4 other couples. A beautiful villa with its own small beach and lots of outside space. We were so well looked after by the amazing staff of 8, all of whom were so professional as well as warm and friendly. We didn't lift a finger. A car or driver is necessary if you wanted to go off sightseeing but there is plenty to do at the villa apart from just relaxing in the sun. Since there were ten of us, we didn't feel the need go out at night as we were a party just at home, with wonderful food and a variety of cocktails and very drinkable wines with each meal. Special thanks to the staff for really spoiling us. Every hotel could learn from the staff training that has made this villa what it is - a very memorable place to stay."

  • Nine days in Paradise!

    "Linga Awile is an amazingly peaceful place. Discovery Bay has, thankfully, not yet been discovered by the mega resorts that are cloning themselves elsewhere in Jamaica. It is a place of sun, sand, warmth and welcome! Jenni was so gracious to let us arrive a day early due to the massive storm that closed down the SE US, and Casita, Cheryl and Deano gave up their day off to welcome us. It only got better from there. The kids spent hours each day in the pool and the adults Linga'd on the Veranda and Gazebo. We all swam in the warm ocean, kayaked and melted in sunshine and 85F. Around the area we enjoyed the caves, horseback riding - into the ocean no less - rafting, and a magical visit to Glistening Waters. We went to local markets and tourist markets, shopped in the local grocery store, and came home each night to a comfortable home, and amazing meals. Don't miss Casita's fried chicken, or coconut moaa, or the talapia! Cheryl kept us in dry towels and dry floors and keeps a spotless house. Deano served us coconut fresh from the tree, every meal, took care of the yard and allowed us the priviledge of getting to know him better in the evening. Moma Casita, Auntie Cheryl and Brother Deano, we have already booked the same time for next year!"

  • Paradise!

    "We spent a marvelous 7 days at Sugar Bay Villa in Discovery Bay. It was a wonderful and amazing time overall. Upon arrival you are greeted by the heart-warming staff with a fresh towel and some drinks to cool-off. As soon as you step into the house, you are in paradise. The 5 bedroom villa has an open lay-out with a patio that looks out over the infinity pool and ocean. The patio is also adjacent to a bar where Ted, your concierge, will create any drink that you desire! The staff are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. They are all so kind, wonderful, and always fulfill your every need. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are catered and special request are always welcomed. The way the staff looks after you truly feels like you are at a 5 star resort! They are always giving special attention to details that make every dining experience practically perfect. During our week at the villa, we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and the same truly made it amazing for her. They set-up a table under the poolside cabana and surrounded it with flaming tiki torches. The whole atmosphere was incredible and they kept the champagne flowing all night long! My wife and I vacationed with 4 other couples so each had their own room. The rooms were extremely well-kept, spacious, and had wonderful views to wake-up to every morning. Finally, the convenience and comfort of having your own private beach was uncomparable to any vacation we have ever been on. The beach is enclosed in a small Laguna so that there are never any major waves. We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle-boarding daily at the villa. Also, we had a couple that enjoyed playing tennis on the private tennis court that was on the Villa property as well. Overall, our stay was unbelievable and highly recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy a luxurious accommodation in Jamaica."

    "First i must say what you see in photos is what you really get plus more.When we arrived on the property we were really in awww,i remember saying to my mom this is really the place for my dream wedding.Everything to perfection waking up to the morning sun on the deck looking over the ocean,seeing the sun set at nights,getting breakfast in the mornings on the deck and hearing the water splash on the rocks.Not to mention how well kept the property was each day we were there, and all the helpful questions we ask were answered no matter how often we ask them. I would give my recommendation to everyone if you need a place for your dream wedding,to celebrate your birthday with friends or to relax with the family and kids."

Discovery Bay Travel Tips

Discovery Bay Beach Rentals with Cliff Divers

From cliff diving to secluded beaches, Discovery Bay beach rentals have it all. Planning your next vacation is easy when you choose Discovery Bay villas because you know the warm waters and tropical haven are waiting for you. Jamaica travel is all about the scuba diving, fishing, and surfing. Each day, you can be delighted by the professional cliff divers jumping into the bay or the sea creatures winking below the waves.

Christopher Columbus and Discovery Bay Villas

Discovery Bay is in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, though it was originally named Dry Harbour Mountains by Columbus. There is a dispute as to where Christopher Columbus landed in 1494. Some believe he landed east of Discovery Bay at Sevilla la Nueva. He chose the name Dry Harbour because underground cracks in the limestone feed the bay rather than rivers. When you rent Discovery Bay villas, you have the chance to visit the mines of the area that have led to the wealth of Jamaica. Jamaica is also highly dependent on tourism so Discovery Bay beach rentals are often affordable compared to other Caribbean Islands.

Jamaica Travel near the Marine Laboratory

Jamaica travel is mostly about scuba diving and the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory. The laboratory was founded in 1965 by marine researchers to monitor and study the coral reefs of Jamaica. The reef is home to numerous species of fish, some sea turtles, and a few species of shark. Even if you do not enjoy diving, the snorkeling from the beach of your Discovery Bay villas will be an experience to remember.

Discovery Bay Beach Rentals by Green Grotto Caves

If you prefer land to sea, Jamaica travel can offer you the Green Grotto Caves. Legend says the caves were a hideaway for Spanish settlers trying to escape the British. This adventure, which is minutes from your Discovery Bay beach rentals, will take you into the past as well as offer a geological lesson. The caves are limestone with stalactites and stalagmites running throughout the caverns leading to an underground lake.
