The weather during our stay was awful! It rained for five days straight in Montego Bay and the surrounding areas. Fortunately, however, our villa was a piece of heaven on earth. The accommodations were stellar, the staff was top notch and our meals were delightful. Chef Carlington fixed wonderful culinary treats each day. The cooking class gave us a fun family bonding experience. Kirk, our butler, tended to everyone's needs so that we all felt special. After we got over the weather issue, we realized that the rain gave us an opportunity to enjoy each other's company in a extraordinary setting.
First time we have had a full staff and it was so worth it! We were well taken care of from drinks being served to reservations and car services being handled
we loved every minute of our week. the villa is beautiful and the staff were amazing. we were catered to and pampered from the moment we arrived. the food was better than it would have been in any resort. the villa owner checked on us a couple of times during the week to make sure that we were happy, which we also appreciated. all in all, it was a perfect, relaxing vacation. having use of the beach at Round Hill was also great. Carlington, Howard and the whole house staff couldn't have been more welcoming to us. we will be back!!!
