Recent Jamaica reviews

  • 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."

  • Peace and quiet

    "My husband and I rented a room in the villa for a week and ended up having the entire house to ourselves. This was perfect as I was recovering from a back injury and just wanted to sleep, swim, sun and walk on the beach. That's exactly what we did. We were greeted by the man that watches the house and cleans the pool. He saw us coming via the security cameras. He checked in on us but didn't interfere with our privacy at all. We never called or used the housekeeper/cook. The rooms are large and nicely decorated, although some bedspreads are about due to be replaced, more from being more outdated than being too worn. All of the bathrooms had brand new towel sets, however, and everything is nicely tiled, and painted. We ended up using the large room upstairs (Room 1) that had A/C, a huge balcony overlooking the front yard. While all rentals have some "quirks," I didn't find any of them with this house to be a deal breaker. Our bathroom was spacious, had a double sink, a tiled "regular" shower, AND one of those shower units with multiple shower heads and a steam option. While the steam option worked, the only shower head that worked was the handheld one but it was all very clean. One review I read mentioned this bathroom as being dark and dingy. I didn't see that at all. The pool was cool and sparkling clean the entire time. The back of the house, where the pool is, was a great place to sun and swim. I knew going in that it wasn't beachfront but was slightly disappointed to only be able to see the beach from the kitchen window because trees block the view, you get what you pay for and it was still great! The beaches on this part of the island have sandy shorelines but have huge rocks out in the water. There is a small cove for swimming a few minutes walk from the house. For those of you who can't "disconnect" from the outside world, the wifi worked pretty well. The TV's get a few channels. The kitchens had decent dishes and cookware. We ate at home during the day and walked down to Jakes or someplace else for dinner. This is a VERY safe area, so don't be afraid to get out and around. I can't wait to rent the entire house and take my entire family down. Get brave and rent a car for your stay. The cost to be picked up at the airport is more than a rental for the week. Jamaican's are awesome at helping you find your way. Then you can explore the island, too! Treasure Beach is natural, casual, quiet and nearly undiscovered. Enjoy!"

  • Amazing!

    "One of the best places you will ever stay. My wife and I and two other couples were planning on going to Cabo until a hurricane hit and our rooms were unavailable 4 weeks before we were scheduled to leave. Luckily, the Rainbow Tree was available. Peter was a great help describing the property and what we could expect. Treasure beach is a wonderful village with little to no tourism. Everyone in the community was extremely friendly and welcoming and we at no time felt uncomfortable to be out alone. Miss Jenni and Miss Laura were amazing and excellent cooks. Aman met us at the airport and drove us to the villa and made us feel comfortable right off of the plane. We decided to go out to eat one night and he dropped us off and picked us up at a local restaurant down the beach and also drove us to the waterfalls for a day trip. The beach that the villa is located on is safe and would be perfect for children. There is a reef that protects the swimming area that has a perfect sand bottom. You can snorkel right in front of the villa. Highly recommend staying at the Rainbow Tree."

  • The Pavilion is well-versed in spoiling and pampering you!

    "THE TRIP DESCRIBED IN TWO WORDS - SMOOTH AND SATED!!! Smooth: Smooth in that there were NO hiccups whatsoever; Smooth in that, to a person, we wanted for nothing the ENTIRE time there; Smooth in that Iona, Glenford, and the rest of the staff anticipated and flawlessly executed on our every next move and next want. Sated: We all returned from our trip with an wry smile curled on our faces reflecting the knowledge of what we just achieved - and what is typically difficult to achieve - namely, the trip eclipsed even the sky-high expectations of a sentinel birthday trip. We will be looking to go back soon! The house sets up perfectly for couples, couples with kids, a guy's golf trip, or a girls spa trip. No need to even leave the property but if you do, having access Half Moon Club (and its beaches, pools, tennis, golf, biking, horses - the list goes on and on) is the cherry on top! This house is a hands-down MUST for your Jamaica escape!!!"
