The location is superb; nestled in a tropical garden on the side of the hill in downtown Ocho Rios. Within five minutes walk you will find shopping, restaurants, night club, cinema, you name it. It is also close to Jamaica’s most famous tourist attractions such as swimming with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove, climb the famous Dunn's River Falls or zip lining at Mystic Mountain to name a few. The Pearl is situated in Columbus Heights, a gated and secure vacation rental community with approximately 221 individually owned apartments used by owners as holiday retreats or vacation rentals. No where in Ocho Rios and perhaps Jamaica have a view quite like this. Come and see for yourself! You will love it.
The Pearl View
The sea view from The Pearl’s extra large balcony (balcony alone is 360 sq ft!) is nothing short of spectacular. You are so close to the water, you want to reach out and touch. The only thing that separates you from the sea is the hill, a road and some trees. You also have front-row-seats to the Ocho Rios Cruise Ship Pier to watch ships like Carnival Freedom arrive with hundreds of tourists. It is as if the ship is in your living room! Both bedrooms , and the living room enjoy this magnificent sea view.
Not to be outdone is the view of the beautiful, well manicured garden and pool from the kitchen, living room and both bathrooms. There is a beautiful view from every room in this Penthouse.

No where in Ocho Rios offers the spectacular views of Ocho Rios. The Pearl Penthouse is our opportunity to share the beautiful tradition and culture with the rest of the world.

Near to the town center with the most attractions in the island of Jamaica. It also have one of the best view of the Caribbean sea.
I stayed at the Ochio Rios Pearl for two weeks. The accommodation was as good as promised. I found the owners helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The property was clean, comfortable and clean towels etc provided daily by the housekeeper who cleaned daily and was available to cook and run errands if needed.
The balcony was large with an outstanding view.
The property is situated within walking distance of the centre of Ochio and the beaches. There was something for all ages with a good selection of local bars, restaurants, clubs and supermarkets.
I could find very little to fault with my stay here and would certainly plan to stay there again.
First let me clarify the owners response concerning the bedroom AC in the master bedroom. It was not replaced until we stayed there. It packed in on our first night. We then had to wait around the condo for four days while a new one was installed. Although the unit was being installed by a relative of the owner he told us not to trust him and to have someone in the condo at times the workmen were there. We waited two days before anyone turned up and a further two days until the installation was complete. Four days of our vacation wasted. The AC in the second bedroom never did work and the one in the living room was disconnected. After having it reconnected and seeing the amount of electricity it used I can see why. Beware, if you are a long stay guest you have to pay for the electricity which in Jamaica is horrendously expensive. As for the updated kitchen it is true there is granite counter top installed but the cupboards are in a very poor state. The apartment was absolutely filthy when we arrived and as the owner has already stated his regular housekeeper was on vacation, not for the two weeks we were told but for three months. I'm sorry to say that Michelle was not much of an improvement. She helped herself to any food she fancied without asking. When we brought this to the owners attention he just said that was the local culture. We could not use the closet in the master bedroom because it smelled of mold. When the AC was being installed the dressing table had to be moved, the dirt behind it was terrible there was even an empty insulin pen. Under the couch which has been stated as being very uncomfortable was some sort of stain plus mountains of dust which we were accused of making. The office staff as has been stated are no use at all. Everything seems too much trouble. It was stated that a local cell phone would be provided which it was but it was not activated and could not be used. I could go on but I think anyone reading this will get the point. I would have given it one star but the view gets an extra star. Everything stated in the previous negative review is true.
This is indeed a wonderfully laid out penthouse with an amazing view! Ocho Rios is a fabulous location in Jamaica. My husband, sons and I enjoyed an entire week and still had lots left on our 'want to do' list. The condo was sparkling clean when we arrived and stayed that way thanks to Michelle. It was great to have Michelle's advice about places; she even accompanied us to the local market for fresh local fruits and vegetables at the local, rather than tourist, prices. The Jamaican meals she prepared for us were so tasty too. The owners are great to work with and very responsive to questions, requests and needs. We look forward to recommending this condo to friends and family.
The condo property landscaping was well attended to, but the buildings, were in poor shape, many of the buildings had black mould on the exterior and needed a good cleaning. Our pool in phase 1 lacked the necessary attention and the pool chairs were in disrepair.
The condo was marketed as newly renovated, with a well equipped kitchen. The kitchen could only be considered well equipped if eating out was your thing; it was a good thing that we never had dinner guests. The balcony was very spacious and the seating was ample, one of the chairs was broken, and it is difficult to understand why I discovered it needed repair. The chair was taken and returned fixed. The side table of the double rocker was lacking a nut to secure the board from tipping, I provided the screw to the office and in the four weeks it was never repaired. A safe in the closet did not work, it was discovered that this was a problem from a previous review. I complained of ants in the condo and that was never resolved. The living room furnishings were not very comfortable and the bedroom furniture was dated. The second bedroom had no dresser for clothes, we had to use end tables which were not adequate.
The "Pearl Experience" was of no help, every question was answered with an I don't know shrug, it seemed the office had many "Chiefs" and there were only a few "Indians".
I would have given a two and a half rating but the review allowed only whole stars.
The property was all that was described online. The owner was great to speak with before getting to the location. This is a lovely getaway in the Ocho Rios area. It offers quiet surroundings on the property and if you need to get to a restaurant or shopping it is within walking distance. The place was clean and kept cleaned everyday. The number 1 asset is the view. The word gorgeous sums it up. It overlooks the bay of Ocho Rios. I would definitely recommend to anyone who asks. Had a great time there.
This is a beautiful place to stay. Me and my husband enjoyed our vacation and Michelle is wonderful. She is a great cook and made sure our place kept clean and tidy. We surely miss the place and the beautiful view from the balcony..
Upon entering the complex , the security was friendly , check in was smooth .
Pros : great location , clean , spectacular views , housekeeper Cooks very well and was accommodating, staff were all friendly , spacious, like keyless entry ,
Cons: 2nd bathroom had lots of ants , no A/C in living room area ( cooled down in the evening with breeze) , safe not reliable even when it says it's open after code is entered, hand paper towels should be provided , not wheel chair accessible for those needing it
Overall , we liked our unit and would stay at Columbus heights again .
Ocho Rios is arguably the best tourist areas in Jamaica. We are overlooking the cruise ship pier where thousands of tourist visit every year. Lots to do including swimming with dolphins, climbing famous dunes ver falls, mystic mountain, horseback riding on the beach, etc. a must see is the reggae explosion museum which explores the history of reggae music and the Jamaican culture
