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."

  • Second Visit to Paradise!

    "We had our second wonderful week at Great River House in April. We wondered if it would live up to the exceptionally high standard of two years ago and it most certainly did!! Once again, we were a party of four adults and five children and the house accommodated us easily. The open living spaces and terrace, and large bedrooms and bathrooms, enable everyone to truly relax. Kirk, the new butler was incredibly attentive, polite, helpful and friendly. He recommended some wonderful day trips and organized these for us. Carlington's cooking was delicious once again and he managed to produce amazing meals for both the adults and children in our party. The housekeepers and laundress kept the house immaculate and the beautiful grounds were extremely well cared for. I really cannot find anything to fault at Great River House and would not hesitate to return for a third time! I cannot recommend this house highly enough!"

  • They aim to please

    "The VERY warm welcome we received set the pace for an enjoyable time at Serendipity. The only thing missing at the welcome was singing some Jamaican folk songs & dancing (smile). Ms. Ruby (cook) & Garnett (butler) (we were in closer contact with these 2 staff members) were easy to talk to and make our wishes known. They accommodated us easily, so we did not feel as if we were imposing. All the staff members were efficient, and seemed to work well together which gave the place a very relaxed air. The food was well prepared, tasty & nicely served. The children in our party were introduced to various new fruits & thoroughly enjoyed the pool every free minute. Apart from a little snag on our arrival ( the driver of our van didn't see us & we couldn't find him) our driver was informative-snippits of folklore-and available to suit our schedule. We, the adults loved the view of the sea from our dining area on the patio. Only 1 out of 3 children lamented when she saw how many mosquito bites she had->15. Overall a very enjoyable & relaxing time spent! The property manager easily answered our questions & gave us clarifications."

  • One rhythm villa

    "Wow what a vacation! The best ever! We've been to Jamaica many times but it was our first visit to one rhythm villa by the sea. Our villa was literally steps from the beach. We could hear the waves from our bedroom. How romantic. Miles of beach to comb without anyone to disturb us. Ms Annette was the best! She cooked special meals for my husband because of his dietary needs. We had everything we could have wanted. We ate fresh fish from the fishing village on the beach that ms Annette cooked to perfection. She really took care of all our needs. It was like living with a good friend for the week. Our driver Johnny took us to out of the way locations, which is exactly what we were looking for. I really enjoyed seeing his friend Jah Five's garden and spending time talking. His garden was amazing! Ms Annette had a local artist come to the house and he painted me a picture of Leroy's bar. Blaze(Shain) has real talent. What a gem of a villa, but the staff made our vacation great. Can't say enough good things! I'll be going back for sure. Would love my son and his girlfriend to see it. Maybe this July. Can't wait!"
