About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

When I first got to the apartment in the Palmyra, I found myself amazed by the beauty and luxury with which it was built. But then, after being there for a couple of hours, I found so much more. I found that the people were welcoming and open, very attentive and helpful, trying every moment to make my experience the best. I felt home, warmth, and then I realized that this was the closest feeling to being in Paradise on earth. The apartment itself is beautiful, the view is amazing, you can just sit on the balcony for a while and get lost in the ocean and the palm trees view. Then there is the private beach, with all the mixtures of blues and greens, and the water is always warm by the sun shinning all day long, it really makes you want to get a splash.

The Pool and the Jacuzzi are perfectly located in the middle of the first and second tower, making the ocean view the main attraction; you can forget about everything else, sitting in the Jacuzzi relaxed looking at the horizon and the Gazebo located half way inside the beach.

The best part is the resort is still in the development stage and you have the place to yourselves. No waiting for elevators beach chairs towels or help from the staff. It can be like your own private oasis. Great for Families and Romantics.

They ask me to write about the property in two paragraphs, and these are the things that come to my mind when I think of it. I know you will feel the same way and I can't wait for you to enjoy as much as I do when I visit this place.

Why DR THOMAS SHEA chose Montego Bay

Since I saw the project being built a couple of years ago, I knew this was going to be one of the best developments in the Caribbean so far. I love the sun and the beach vacation, and for me as a keen golfer, having three of the most beautiful golf courses around and having privileges as a result of buying the property were a determining factor. I love the culture, the food and the warmth of the Jamaican people, and I couldn't think of a better place to go when I want to have it all.

What makes this apartment unique

The place is comfortable and very nice to be in. You have the freedom to cook your own food if you feel like it, sit on the sofa and read for a while or just watch TV. You can go out to the balcony and enjoy the fresh air, the water view, and then you can have a nice relaxing bath in the tub conveniently located close to your bed. I can assure you will feel like home; sometimes it can feel a little uncomfortable leaving your own house, because you are used to the comfort and modern conveniences of todays life. Here you will find that and more, the self-controled digital thermostat gives you the freedom to set and maintain a comfortable room temperature; the rain shower gives the exact amount of pressure to massage your body when you take a bath, not to mention the Bosch appliances that give you the simplicity of modern life.

Living the good life!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 27, 2014

This bear and her husband had the pleasure of staying on the beautiful northern shores of Jamaica, in the Rose Hall area. This private one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo at Palmyra offered incredible views of the ocean and tranquil surroundings throughout our stay. The condo was nicely appointed with upgraded Bosch appliances and furnishings. Being on the fifth floor, we had a lovely balcony that allowed views of the ocean, as well as the mountains. We were happy to see a washer/dryer which came in handy for wet towels and clothing. Wifi and cable television worked well, as did the dual air conditioners in the bedroom and living room. We loved the shower; great water pressure and a fabulous shower head that I am ready to install at home! We had no trouble getting onto “island time”, waking up in the comfy king size bed, sipping Blue Mountain coffee on the balcony each morning, and lazing around the incredible pool area or swimming in the blue waters on the private beach. We had our choice of places to relax, whether it was under a palm tree on the secluded beach, one of the many pool deck chairs, or even the comfy couches under the cabana next to the pool. To say the staff was friendly is an understatement. From the concierge to the maintenance man, Victor, all became our friends quickly during our stay. One of the gentlemen scaled a ladder to the top of a palm tree to bring us fresh coconuts. He craftily used his machete to open it up so that we could enjoy the coconut water that spilled from inside. The location of the condo was excellent. While we had complete serenity at the resort, we had a world of fun adventures nearby. A scenic drive to Ocho Rios, or a short drive to Montego Bay’s famous Hip Strip and Doctor’s Cave Beach were all possible. Golf courses abound in this area, and they were simply exquisite and very challenging. There were several dining options nearby, whether it was to eat authentic Jamaican food in nearby food shacks such as Scotchies or Far Out Fish, or fine dining at the Half Moon Bay Resort, just a half mile up the road, we found the possibilities were plenty. We ate ocean front on most evenings, even being so close to the water that we could put our feet in at the Chill Out Hut. We even found a delightful English pub called Robbie’s Kitchen with a wonderful staff and excellent food at the small shopping center up the road. Our most exciting find was the Café Blue, a lovely coffee shop in the Rose Hall Shoppes that served excellent coffee, sandwiches, and gelato. Our stay in Jamaica was such a pleasant one that it was difficult to return home.

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Great Resort! Thank You!

  • 5 of 5

First, Dr. Shea was a pleasure to deal with. From the initial booking to checking in to assistance while we were there. He sent someone with light bulbs (when 1 burned out) for us. Top Notch! He called me a week before to explain everything to me. Which was great as no one from VRBO had ever personally called me to explain things. Nice touch.

Now the resort....Amazing! I cannot even explain how beautiful this place is. The grounds, beach, pools, etc are pristine. They are constantly manicuring the grounds. Even on Easter Sunday. Unbelievable! Seriously one of the best beaches and pools I have been to and we have been everywhere in Cali, FL, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Nothing is too far from each other and there were always pool and beach chairs. A huge plus! Very low key and totally relaxing. I hate fighting people for chairs every morning. That does not happen here! 😃?⛱☀️

There was also 24 hour security everywhere on the resort. With a 17 year old daughter, that was very reassuring. They were even strict with the drivers that came in and out of the resort.

Everyone that worked there was extremely friendly and helpful. We were constantly asked if we needed anything.

I was not sure what to expect because we were on the EP plan and not part of the AI. We were treated like royalty. Whatever we wanted was taken care of for us. They let us run a tab all day then close out at the end. It was perfect, and honestly the prices were not bad. The pool bar food was great. We did eat at the Steakhouse, Tappen and the Gala Buffet. All were very good. We also ate at Waves for breakfast 2 mornings and on Easter Sunday they gave us 30% discount. Not sure why but was a nice touch. Mimosa’s every morning too! Cannot go wrong with that!

We ventured out to Ocios Rios and Negril as well as Drs Cave beach. The location was perfect. 20 Mins from downtown and between Negril and OR. We ate downtown the other nights we were there. We got hooked up with a driver the first day and he gave us a deal to go downtown every night for dinner.

Dr. Shea’s condo was on the 5th floor with a great view of the ocean and the mountains. It was a perfect location and the building was very quite. There was a Concierge in that building and was there to help with anything as well as a really great coffee shop. King bed was comfy and loved the washer and dryer. The glassed in shower always had hot water and and good pressure.

All in all the Jewel is an amazing resort !

Fantastic Condo & Beautiful Resort

  • 5 of 5

We were only in the condo for 2 nights. We found the condo clean and the bed and linens as well as the rest of the condo was very comfortable. Dr. Shea was always easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to questions. The resort is absolutely beautiful. It is very clean and well kept. They clean the seaweed off the beach every morning, so the beach is beautiful. There are lots of loungers and you have service on the beach so you don't have to leave your chair. There was entertainment by the pool in the evening and the food at the restaurants was excellent. The only negative (and it was minor for our time there), was we were on the second floor next to a kitchen so when the kitchen had their exhaust fans on it was a bit noisy when we were sitting on the balcony. The resort would be excellent for families, but is excellent for couples as well. I would recommend this condo and the resort.

The most Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

To start off dealing with the owner Dr Thomas Shea was fantastic. His fast response in answering all our questions and concerns was to say the least amazing. The condo we rented was a dream come true. This place was a little pice of heaven, from the ocean view to the king size comfortably bed we had everything that we needed. The resort that the condo is on was way above our expectations, from the amazing staff fabulous food restaurant options and beautiful beach. We highly recommended this condo by Dr Shea on this beautiful resort.

Thank you Robert and Rachel Perry

Beautiful Condo & Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

Now that the Jewel Grand is open, it is fabulous to have all the services of an all-inclusive resort without feeling tied to the property. The condo was very clean and exactly as we expected. The king bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the view was amazing. I highly recommend this property. :)
