Recent Jamaica reviews

  • A Jamaican Balm for the Soul

    "Back in 1974-76 I taught school in Jamaica for two years, living near Savannah La Mar with my three kids. Many times I have been back, but my most recent trip was truly memorable. My husband and I had grown tired of the noise, too many tourists, and hustle of the North Coast, so we decided to try the South Coast this time because we know it's still unspoiled. We searched the internet and loved seeing the pictures and reviews of Rainbow Tree, so we booked there. We were not disappointed! It's an incredibly beautiful spot, well-maintained, and looks oh so Caribbean, sitting on a bluff above the sea. We were greeted by Laura and Jenny who had prepared a very tasty group of appetizers and drinks for us to enjoy, which we did on the back veranda. Somehow we timed our arrival to just before sundown, so we relaxed with our drinks, watching a picture-perfect sunset, the colors varied from pink to orange to purple, as the sun slipped into the sea. I knew then that our vacation would be filled with good people, good food, nature, and relaxation. Ahhhhh... Each morning we walked up the nearly deserted beach to the fishing village, where brightly-painted boats were pulled up on the beach. If you see anyone, tourist or local, the person will greet you with a smile, but won't intrude on your experience. What a contrast to the hustle of the crowded beaches of the North Coast! Both Laura and Jenny have worked with the owners of Rainbow Tree for many, many years, Laura since it was built 23 years ago—and Jenny for a dozen. What a great tribute to the owners that their staff does not want to leave! What a great tribute to Laura and Jenny, that the owners are happy with them, too! With so many years of experienced staff, you can imagine how smoothly and calmly the place runs. Aman, Laura's husband, is available for transport if you don't have a car. He drove us all the way over to Grange Hill, several hours away, so I could visit my old school. It was so gratifying to be greeted with smiles from several on staff who had been there those many years ago when I taught there. I couldn't stop crying, especially when I reunited with two of my students who teach there now. That's Jamaica, full of beautiful people and beautiful places, all glowing beneath the Caribbean sun. Try Rainbow Tree---the staff is dedicated to making your stay wonderful, the sea is there to salve your soul, and you will come back contented and refreshed."

  • A Piece of Paradise

    "Daniela's place is literally a slice of heaven that sits right on the ocean with your own private beach where we watched the beautiful sunrise every morning. The condo is gorgeous with bold, bright colors making you feel right at home in Jamaica. The online pictures are no comparison to getting a real taste of Daniela's hidden gem! It's cozy and has every amenity one could need or want. upon arrival we were greeted by Cathy and Charmaine, Daniela's wonderful housekeepers. They kept everything neat and clean and were helpful with everything from directions to excursions. Next, I was able to have fresh coconut water cut by Trevor, the groundskeeper. He shimmied right up the coconut tree right in front of me as I watched in amazement, cut the coconut from the tree and used his machete to chop away at the coconut and served it to me. You are minutes from Ocho Rios, Reggae Beach, Fisherman's Beach and Little Dunn River Falls with taxis just outside your door transportation is easy. Definitely stop at Margaretville at Fisherman's Beach- Karaoke night is an absolute must! But I spent most of my time on the porch relaxing with the view of the boats passing in the blue waters. I admit I did fall asleep in the hammock a few time while reading. Pure Bliss. Daniela also offers the use of 2 hammocks and 2 lawn chairs which separates her from the other units, which is not offered by the other units. Daniela's unit has so much more than you could ever want. I have to tell you now - Your search is over! Stop looking! I highly recommend Daniela's place. It's perfect for couples and families and with breathtaking views that you make you never want to say goodbye. Daniela, thank you for everything and sharing your piece of paradise with me. I am definitely starting a tradition and will be returning next year and many more! Blessed Love! Shea"

  • Best Jamaica Experience

    "It is rare that a property , even as well presented in the on-line pictures as Calypso Shores is , will truly meet your expectation when you actually arrive to the location. In this case , Calypso Shores far exceeded our expectations in every way possible!! The fabulous location , the private beach , the house and all of its amenities , and the friendly and attentive staff all made the experience truly remarkable. We rented the property as four couples who have individually and collectively travelled pretty much to all of the great ( and not so great ) vacation spots around the globe. A number of us had also been to Jamaica and Montego Bay previously and stayed at a couple of the nearby high-end resorts....so our expectations were high ; but guarded. It is truly our collective delight to be able to provide this well deserved review for Calypso Shores ...and unanimity for eight people on a review of a location is just as rare as is this true gem of a property. Well deserved and and we definitely will book again."

  • Lasting postive impression! Will definitely be returning.

    "I recently had the great opportunity to stay with a group of girlfriends at Tropical Breeze Villa, in Negril. Everything was just as we had hoped for. We had done the resort type trip and was looking for something that would leave us with a true feeling that we had visited another country, rather than an Americanized version of a Caribbean vacation. To our delight, this was EXACTLY what we received! :) Upon our arrival we were greeted with friendly resident staff, whom always made sure we were comfortable and content, for the complete duration of our stay. Our first impression was a home away from home, with a cultural feel and relaxing vibe. The rooms were all very clean, including kitchen and all four bathrooms. The housekeeper, Sophie, is a wonderful person, and very polite. She kept the villa clean and tidy, while respectfully maintaining our privacy. We appreciated that! Meals were made by the on-site master chef, and was a definite highlight for our group of 'foodie' ladies, and the BEST I've personally had in the Caribbean! Any inquiries we had about entertainment were fully answered, with varying options to please our dynamic group of women. Whether lounging poolside (on-site), or at the nearby beautiful white sand beach, this villa is located in the heart of Negril and we were always just minutes away from thrilling entertainment; Including: Rick's Café (a MUST), MargaritaVille, riverboat rafting, 7 mile beach, nature hikes, bird watching and more! We were even offered rides for a reasonable price, to any of these excursions by their friendly driver, Jazzbo. He was able to point out all the best attractions! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay, and our recommending it to our friends! - C.K"
