Recent Jamaica reviews

  • Peace and tranquility

    "If you are looking for tranquility, beauty and peace, you will find it at Idle Hours. The setting is spectacular, completely modern and functional, with good taste. You can waste away your days in a book on the private beach. The staff are welcoming, flexible and open to suggestions, whilst unobtrusive. A few days at Idle Hours will leave you refreshed and reenergized."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Place!

    "This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. Right on the ocean. Gorgeous views from the house. The house is in great condition and the staff was wonderful. Helpful. Attentive. The food was great. A mix of local flavors and old favorites. We never had to worry about a thing. We had a large group staying on the property but the house did not feel crowded. Having the bus made it easy to take day trips to the many different activities in and around Ocho Rios. There are a wide range of activities available to guests everything from the more touristy spots in Ocho Rios to the remote waterfalls of Bluehole. Stay at the Villa Paradiso and you will never want to leave!"

  • Had an amazing time.

    "We were two families sharing the villa. 4 adults and 5 children. The location is great and being that it's a villa u get the resort staff but privacy of a home with a huge private pool. Beach access is a snap even though you are crossing a major road. Drivers actually stopped several times to let us cross. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it really should have an outdoor bbq grill. I am already trying to figure out how to get back to this villa. Negril is awesome and this villa is right near all the action. Loved all the spots on the beach. Very friendly staff"
