  • Enjoyed the Palmyra

    "The Palmyra is a high end resort that was apparently foreclosed on a few years ago. There are three 10+ story buildings of rooms, but one of the buildings is not finished. The resort appears to be operated by the bank and/or some people who purchased condominiums there. My family stayed in a first floor condo last week. The condo we stayed in (I think it was room 104) was very high end. The ceilings are about 14 feet high, tile floors, granite countertops, nice kitchen, very nice bathrooms, very nice deck overlooking the ocean and the pool. There are several floor to ceiling windows, the condo is fairly spacious and well decorated. The grounds are very well maintained. The beach is great and the pool is great. It was a little creepy at first because we were they only occupants we saw for the first few days, and the interior hallways are not well lit at night. (The resort is gated and guarded.) However, after a few days we settled in and could appreciate the resort better. There were also a few other families as the week went on. I definitely recommend staying in a condo at the Palmyra rather than one of the all inclusive resorts (Hilton, Hyatt, Holiday Inn) nearby. Of the families we met mid week had also stayed at the Hyatt and said that it was obviously not creepily vacant, but was so crowded that they could barely find a place to sit on the beach. At the Palmyra we had a beautiful beach mostly to ourselves the whole week. There are no restaurants at the Palmyra, and I don't think the nearby resorts allow (or at least the financially discourage) non guests from eating there. However, Montego Bay has a lot of very nice restaurants that are reasonably priced and I am much happier that we explored the costal towns rather than just stay at an all inclusive resort. The Palmyra manager we worked with (Judith) was accommodating and helpful. She also recommended a driver named Richard. (You should not plan on renting a car in Jamaica if you are from the US. The roads are much more narrow than we are used to and the drivers driver differently - not just on the other side of the road, but sort of crazy.) However, Richard was a great driver. He was knowledgeable as a tour guide, a safe driver, and very enjoyable to be with. He also consistently steered us to activities and restaurants that we liked. The only thing we did wrong was not bring our own snorkeling gear. We could not rent decent gear there and we would liked to have done more snorkeling."

  • Perfect vacation

    "We were a party of 9 using 4 of the five beautifully appointed bedrooms. Kim was super helpful prior to our arrival, happily answering any questions. The entire staff was friendly and very helpful. The best thing we did was hire a driver. I can't even call him a driver, Dwayne was a tour guide, he recommended restaurants and helped us decide on excursions. He is like a personal concierge. Therefore, we all highly recommend hiring not just a driver but hiring Dwayne! All of the breakfasts were great. We did not have lunch but the dinners we had were good. Another bit of advise from someone not accustomed to having a cook- don't be afraid to share what you want to eat. If you don't ask you won't get just what you want. We had a wonderful time at Coconut Cottage and loved the Round Hill resort amenities."

  • Best Villa Vacation Ever!

    "This was a last minute booking but the owners went above and beyond to insure our trip was stress free. Unexpected to us, Leslie the butler met us at the airport with the driver, and made it his mission to take care for the rest of the week. The owners who live in Florida appear to be very involved in the management of the property and it shows. We arrived to chilled towels and met the rest of the 7 person staff who greeted us with “welcome home”. They endeavored to satisfy us in every way possible for balance of our stay. Never intrusive, always friendly, and available day and night, they quietly went about their daily routines in keeping the Villa and grounds in top shape. As they say, the best Chef’s on the island are found in the better villas and Bambu's Peaches is the best we have experienced in multiple villa stays over 20 years of visits to Jamaica. Leslie joked our first night that the meals would progressively get better each day, but we found every dinner to be equally exceptional. We opted to enjoy all of our meals in the open air dining pavilion which afforded excellent views over to Montego Bay both day and night. Other options included a formal dining room as well as a beautiful terrace area on the ocean facing corner of the property. Peaches’ multi course creations were always served by Leslie, each meal served on a different and unique place setting. All meals were restaurant quality! The villa itself is unique for the area…a blend of Caribbean Architecture (roof lines) with some old world Italian inspired features (arches; iron work) including the statues around the swimming pool which may remind some of a roman spa, or at least the Garden of the Gods at Caesars Palace (Vegas Edition). The show stopper is the grounds. Multiple levels of well-manicured lawns, fruit trees, palms, dotted with fountains and quiet spaces. Well placed Royal Palms towering over the roof tops give the property a true paradise feel. Not a bad view anywhere. In addition to the usual “free range” island foul, the owner’s love of animals is present on their island estate. The “Arc” as I called it included roaming bunnies, a few peacocks, a friendly Great Dane Pup, goats, and even a parrot who added to the menagerie. The pictures do not do the place justice. We were two and more than comfortable, but Bambu easily works for multiple couples or a larger family because of the many “hiding places” affording on demand quiet time. 5 Star Experience"

  • Pimento Hill - very special place - great vacation!!

    "We just returned from Pimento Hill House yesterday.... what a wonderful week we had there! The house and the grounds are beautiful. The pictures you see on line can't do justice to the views or to the house! The house itself accommodated our group of 13 (6 adults, 7 teens) perfectly. We have traveled together for spring break for the past 6 years to some very wonderful places and we all agreed that it will be hard to top Pimento Hill. The staff at the villa is a great group of people - they are cheerful, helpful, and kind and they really gifted us with a delightful and stress-free vacation. To have Delano available anytime with a very comfortable van that accommodated our whole group was awesome! Ralston delivered a new unique flower from the property to each of the ladies every morning... and he keeps the gardens and grounds looking amazing. Eric and Brandon are both so friendly and kind - they made mealtime at the villa such a delight. Christine and Yvonne kept our rooms feeling so inviting and they were like laundry fairies.... our clothes would show up in the afternoon washed and folded in the closet! Finally, Pansy in the kitchen.... she is magic back there! Our group includes one vegan and three people who have to be gluten free. In addition to providing delicious meals, Pansy did it while also accommodating some very difficult dietary requirements. The membership at Round Hill that is included in the rental is a perfect compliment to the house. Round Hill is a very unique and beautiful place with a history as interesting as Pimento Hill. We enjoyed the beach, the pools, the fitness center, the restaurant, High Tea, tennis, snorkeling... it's a great spot! We really can't say enough good things about Pimento Hill. Jane, the owner, was so helpful as we were planning the trip. It is obvious that she loves Pimento Hill and is committed to making sure that her guests have a great visit there. She has done a wonderful job restoring and decorating the home, as all the spaces in and around the house are very beautiful. We can't wait to go back!!"
