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."

  • Our Destination Wedding Villa

    "We are thrilled we chose the Llantrisant location to host our memorable wedding with our loved ones and cannot recommend this place enough to anyone we know considering vacationing in Jamaica and/or hosting a destination wedding or event for themselves, as this truly was that way to go. Both my husband and I work within the hospitality industry of hotels and restaurants and from our experience, creating a personal event unique to our personalities and taste is exactly what we were able to achieve at Llantrisant, rather than the generic, typical resort wedding styles we saw all over the internet for most people that choose their destination wedding in Jamaica. Llantrissant's rustic and well maintained historic estate was a romantic and practical location we spent 1 week at with 10 of our closest friends in addition to being the location our wedding was hosted at. Being that the grounds have 2 private beaches, manicured landscaping, a large grass/sand backyard and 24 our security of the enclosed property, this was a stellar location to hold our intimate 30 guest wedding outside with the ocean as our background. The staff prepared local food and was helpful in recommending vendors for all of our providers for lighting, music, flowers, etc. If you are looking for a memorable, rustic and "non-cookie cutter" Jamaican experience, choose Llantrisant and not another Sandals resort. Support a small business that will provide a much more authentic experience while visiting Jamaica."

  • What a great trip and we loved the staff. The reviews about the view are understated!

    "We had a wonderful trip, never been at a staffed home or villa before. We were not sure what to expect, however loved it. Ms. Tiny and Betsy did a wonderful job and keeping the house looking great and the food was wonderful. Lawford took us to the beach many times and does a wonderful job with the BBQ grill. Waking up to that view every morning was a real treat and we were fortunate to have several ships pass by during the day and that was fun to see too. We weren't sure if we should hire the driver, however we did and do not regret it. We were not on the go very much, but it was nice to have the flexibility to go when we needed to. We have small children and did make a few trips to the store to keep them happy. We did plan to eat out several evening, however after the first nights meal, it was an easy decision to spend the evening there. This is a very comfortable home and very spacious. We were told that we were the last group that was going to be there before the renovations started, we have know idea why this place needs updating, but we can't wait to return and see the changes. Thank you Doug for all the help and being so easy to talk to (even our goofy questions) You have a great place and we hope to return soon."

  • 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!!!"
