Awesome vacation !!!
"Villa Paradiso is an absolutely beautiful place to vacation. It began when Ronnie picked us up at the airport and transported us by van with cold beverages after a long customs process at the airport. Here's a tip - if you can find a way to bypass the regular customs process, pay for it, it'll be worth it. We were greeted by the awesome staff from Villa Paradiso with cold towels and a beverage as we took in all that the Villa has to offer. Our luggage was brought to our rooms and we were off to explore every nook and cranny of the home and grounds. Our week was a family celebration week and it could not have been better. The days were filled with wonderful food prepared by Lila and Germain and lots and lots of swimming, walking the beach and relaxing. Our family consisted of 13 of us from a 15 month old Great Grandson, two pre-teens a couple of young adults and adults. Some went to offered excursions, others stayed back and just relaxed. It was the perfect place to unwind and unplug from the rest of the world. My phone landed in the safe the moment we arrived and I never turned it on, used the WIFI or even looked at it, it was wonderful. Everyone felt pampered and relaxed and we hope to be back at Villa Paradiso in the future. If you are looking for a family reunion destination, a smaller wedding, a girls week away - don't hesitate - you won't be disappointed!! I can't say enough about the entire staff - they were absolutely wonderful- we left feeling like they were family."

"My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and had a great time. The condo was nicely furnished and had a fully stocked kitchen. It's in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants, bars and right next to the beach. Pauline the housekeeper was great and very friendly. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend staying there."

"I can't say enough about this adorable Cottage. It is definitely a hidden gem and by far the best place we have ever stayed. The cottage has a personality of its own and the pictures online just don't do it justice. If I had to describe it in 2 words I'd say HIDDEN PARADISE. The views are amazing and quite breathtaking. You feel as if your isolated yet your still so close to everything.
Lets start with the favorites:
-The outdoor shower is the cutest thing! Taking a shower while having an ocean view and breeze is awesome.
-The bedroom is so comfy and waking up to the sunrise with the ocean breeze makes you feel as if you are truly in paradise. Theres no AC but with the constant breezes we didn't even really need the fans.
- We love how open the whole place is with constant breezes and fresh air. The mosquitoes weren't much of a problem but I did bring my OFF.
-The decor and artwork is so unique and captivating. We have made it a goal now to try and find hidden gems like this every vacation!
-The cove and path to the to the ocean and dock is a nice surprise as its not in the photos but one of our favorite things. The kayaks were alot of fun. I can't say enough about the amazing snorkeling right off the dock. Its a hidden coral paradise. There is little if any boats or people in this area, again making your feel like you have your own little piece of paradise.
-The hammocks instantly force you to relax and unwind. It was one of our favorite spots to lounge, read a book, have a drink and take in the view. Although there was wifi we found that this cottage had the effect of making you easily want to disconnect from the world.
We truly loved every little thing about the cottage. Lets not forget that the host Peter is awesome in and of himself!!! He was always easy to reach and very helpful! We arranged our airport pickups with him which we ended up using same driver for an outing. We literally did not leave the cottage for several days until we ran out of food! Between relaxing/lounging and the water access honestly you could spend your entire vacation here ! There is a delicious Jamaican spot with signage simply of "Restaurant" over the door that has delicious cheap food which is walking distance.
Absolutely Love this Cottage! Almost don't want others to know about it so we can feel like it is our secret BUT Do yourself a favor and get in on this secret! We are already planning our return visit. If your looking 4 a relaxing paradise this is it."

"My partner and I spent two weeks here in September. We arrived at Chrisanns resort late in the evening, so it was in the morning the full glory of our surroundings became fully apparent to us. The apartment itself is decorated in vibrant colours, one is my favourite. The apartment is laid out nicely and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, which was good as we did a lot of cooking. The day bed is a great chill spot and offered my partner respite watching international cricket and catching the sea breeze. I would utilise the different seating Daniela has available for the apartment, but truly enjoy laying in one of the hammocks reading a book, i mostly fell asleep whilst being gently rocked by the sea breeze.
Having the cove right outside your door is not only beautiful to look at but gives you everything you need from the beach holiday literally at your doorstep... a lilo is a must if you want to spend time floating around in the pool (bring a electric pump if you have one) which of course is located perfect for the sun and still in view of the sea, it felt amazing to me.
There is a supermarket and restaurant, across the road, we ate there on a few occasions and it was great to fill the gaps when we did not want to cook.
If you want a relaxing holiday where you can really unwind this is the spot, the sounds of the sea by day, the crickets by night. If you want local nightlife we went to a bar across the road, or go to Oche Town and you can get a route taxi across the road. Oceans 11 is worth checking out on Sunday – Karoke night. We did not drive and we were not held back because of it, the taxis are the mode of transport for the local people and you can use them too although a tight squeeze and save $$ to have more rum drinking hammock days
Charmaine & Cathy are the best housekeepers and they made us very welcome. Trevor made sure we tasted the fruits of the garden getting jelly coconut to drink straight from the tree, and lovely herbs growing to use, rosemary and tyme and Aloes right at your feet.
We loved packing a little picnic and spend hour or two in the gazebo, waving to passengers on the passing boats, jet skis and the fishermen
The apartment and surroundings had all we needed and really enjoyed staying here, we think our apartment was defiantly in the best spot. Having been to the island many times before, i am so happy that i found this apartment and will defiantly be going back"
