Welcome to Tikal, an ocean front luxury villa, exquisitely remodeled in 2013 with an East Indian motif. We are adjacent to the Chukka Cove Horse & Adventure Farms, which is noted as Jamaica's premier tourist attraction provider. We are on the main highway (A1) between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, 80 minutes from Montego Bay Sangster International Airport.

This was the most beautiful property. It was so relaxing and very private. The security guard Phillip made us feel very safe. The Villa was very nice, very clean and had everything we needed. We also loved Ms. Marcia our maid/cook. She made our vacation wonderful. The Chukka adventure park/horse farm is right behind the Villa. We had easy access to grocery and excursions. This has been one of our best vacations. We will definitely be back! Looking forward to seeing the staff and the most amazing sunsets.
Thank you so much Beth! It has been a real pleasure to have you there!!! You deserve an easy 5 stars… Please come back anytime. Our work is quite easy with guests like you.
I'm not sure 2500 Characters are enough so I'm going to hit what I think was important to us as a family that we were not aware of but great surprises. Maria as everyone mentions is awesome and a great cook. We did not use her skills as much as we probably should have but she was still a big help. Philip was an added perk as the on premise security and just a great guy. The house was recently remodeled, AC in every room and as we say "AS ADVERTISED". The pool is actually a little closer to the house that it looks in the pictures which was great for us having a 16 month old. There are 5 Villas that share the pool but it feels like your own as everyone is on the go all the time or just relaxing on their own veranda gazing out at the ocean. Big Time bonuses - 1) Chukka Caribbean Adventures is 100 yards down the dirt road - trust me having driven in Jamaica, use them to take you on the tours. If you need a Daquiri as a break from the Red Stripe they also have a little bar and gift shop. They will pick you up right there for any tours. Blue Hole & White River Rafting were the winners in our group with Blue Hole being #1. 2) 200 yards down the dirt road was a diving pool which was a protected area (yes the ocean can get a little rough) with a 15 foot ledge that you can jump off of into the protected pool that is 25' deep. 3) .5 miles the other way down the dirt road, thru the 4 wheeling trail we found a little cove that the kids were able to surf - yes we had our own boards and it is a river rock bottom but it was fun. 6) the bat caves which are in a beautiful cove. 7) Last but not least the "Jamaican Rush Hour" - Every evening and every morning the 100 horses from Chukka trot from their stables to Chukka and every evening they trot back to their stables where they are fed. All on their own right in front of the house down the dirt road. Lastly you can walk to the Country Store or cab it and there is a large grocery store in Ocho Rios with a little more if you are feeding a family of 7 as we were. We did go out to dinner one night in Runaway Bay at Sharkies and that was outstanding with "Bathrooms Coming Soon" per the sign :) If you are thinking of a private retreat with easy access to everything this place is totally worth it - "MAKE IT HAPPEN MON"
Melissa will follow up with probably a much more eloquent report.
Thank you so much Mike! We are so glad you enjoyed our house!!! Things are quite easy with guests as you.
It is an easy 5 stars for you too!
Please come back to visit us. There are still too many things to discover!
This place is a gem. Location is fabulous. The property manager and housekeeper/cook are both very accommodating and attentive. Very nicely furnished. The grounds and pool are well looked after. We enjoyed the small sandy cove on the property and the nearby larger cove for cliff jumping and snorkeling. We felt very safe and secure within this small group of villas. We'll be back!!
Well kept and picturesque property...tranquil even when the seas are rough...breathtaking views!
My family of six had a blast at this villa. It was our first time here having been to other villas here in Jamaica and overseas. It was very well appointed and furnished with a natural flow of light and space throughout. Marcia who has been here for over 30 years was as engaging as she was excellent in meal preparation and attending to our needs even during her own family emergency. Janet checked in with us during the stay and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. Thanks to Phillip for helping to keep us safe. We saw him routinely walking the property particularly at night. Friends who passed by were very impressed with the house and its idyllic setting. Kids had a blast and we were very happy. Will certainly recommend to others. Javier, thanks for your patience with me in setting this up.
PS - might consider drapes/blinds as an option for downstairs...wife mentioned feeling a little like being in a fish bowl while watching TV at night. Who do I speak with about an interest in purchasing villa 3? :-).
It was such a sweet and beautiful villa, with fantastic service in a wonderful area
The villa was well appointed and very charming, with its lovely Indian/ Balinese style. So pretty and relaxing.
It was perfect for our family with its full kitchen and wonderful maid, Marcia- who cooked like a pro. Delicious Jamaican food!
The villa had all that we needed. Comfy beds with cool decor and even An Apple TV for the kids to enjoy the nights, while we sipped our wine on the breezy patio.
The pool was only steps away and the best part was how the kids enjoyed the coves and cliffs for snorkeling all day. There is even a cool bat cave thst we discovered!
The kids were entertained from morning till night. The sea was wonderful and so much to see..from a family of squid, to cool eels and Sea snakes. It was amazing. My 4 year old daughter even met her first real life Dory! The kids were in the sea fishing and exploring.
We will definitely come back and bring friends with us. It was fun, relaxing and we wish we had more time there.
Great style, fit everyone with the kids loving the bunk beds, fabulous friendly service and value. Defiantly worth it!
Thank you so much Ms. Lopez!
We loved to have you and your family with us.
Everyone in our team works hard to make the stay in our house as much comfortable as possible and, with guests like you, it seems we are getting.
Hope to see you back soon.
