Truly a Vacation In Paradise
"My dreams came true this winter when we had the opportunity to spend a week at Villa Paradiso. It was a rare and unforgettable occasion to reconnect with our grown children and create memories we will cherish for a lifetime.
Logistically, everything went off without a hitch. Ron picked us up at the airport in a comfortable van and offered a plethora of information on the surroundings as we made our way to the villa where we were warmly greeted by the staff.
The villa was absolutely stunning; far exceeding our expectations. It was beautifully decorated and extremely spacious. From the lovely gardens surrounding the villa, to the refreshing pool, to the glorious private beach, every moment was magical.
We sumptuously dined out of doors under the covered porch served by friendly and attentive staff. We planned our meals with the assistance of the chef Leila and sampled the delicious Jamaican cuisine. We were never disappointed!!
At the end of the day we were treated to divinely comfortable, turned down beds in beautifully appointed bedrooms. Each room had its own en-suite bath and spacious closets. The tropical breezes and ocean waves rocked us into peaceful sleep.
Apart from our visits to town and a few hours at Dunn’s River Falls we did not feel compelled to leave the villa. (Although there are many attractions in the area) We snorkeled right in front of the villa, seeing many tropical fish and sea creatures, played in the surf and lounged by the pool.
The only problem with our stay was having to leave paradise. Thank you to Tony, Nadine, Leila and all the staff for treating us like royalty. It was a perfect escape. I would highly recommend Villa Paradiso to anyone wanting a vacation of a lifetime."

"One of my friends and I went down for a girl's trip for a few days. She took the bed and I slept in the oversized bay window in the living area. The window is more than enough room for 1 adult. Daniela's condo is the perfect spot for your stay. It is very relaxing. There's a cove a few steps from the door. All the amenities of home, a store and restaurant across the street, and taxis come by constantly which can take you to town. The staff was superb, very welcoming, and tended to our every need. There's also a phone you can rent and add minutes for communication or to call a taxi. The pics of the resort gives you a perfect view of what it's like. Daniela's unit also has 2 hammocks for the trees outside. Amazing resting spot with a nice breeze. We met some other visitors who were a little envious of the hammocks :) The other residents were very friendly and helpful as well. Trevor, the groundskeeper, got us some fresh coconut from the tree. I cannot say enough great things about this resort. It's so much better than staying in the inclusive resorts. If you're looking for a true Jamaican experience, this is the place for you. We wanted to stay an extra day because it was so relaxing and peaceful but we couldn't change our flights. Communicating with Daniela was super easy. She responds quickly. I highly recommend this condo. In fact, I'm already looking at future dates to go back this year! You will not be disappointed!!!"

"El departamento está muy bien puesto, con detalles adorables y cuidado con amor.
Vimos películas, cocinamos, hicimos snorkel, era como estar en casa con un paisaje mucho más lindo, por supuesto! Me pareció un poco lejano del centro. Pero si lo que buscan es descansar y disfrutar de la pileta es ideal!"

The week that I look forward to the most each year.
"This was the second week that I have spent at Villa Mara. It was like coming home!
We were met at the front door with welcomes and hugs.
Last year I thought that the stay was amazing - this year - it was even better. I don't know how the staff did it but they remembered little details about our likes and were right on top of everything. The beautiful house has the atmosphere of real Jamaica and I must say that I got the back to boarding school feeling when we had to leave.
My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grand daughters accompanied me on this trip. Every one had a blast and felt most pampered. My grand daughters both cried when they left.
Many very, very happy memories have been made at Villa Mara. For that week we were made to feel that it was our home."
