Legend has it that Martha Brae, who had supernatural powers, was captured by Spanish soldiers, and tortured to reveal the location of a secret gold mine.

Guestbook comments from the manager

David and Stacy were great from arrival, they stayed in contact throughout the entire trip to ensure things were going smoothly. The apartment was just as pictured. The complex has some breathtaking views. Staff was always helpful, hint Dwight can assist you with anything you may need at the complex. Private taxis are at the complex most times and if it isn't front desk was very good with that as well. Margaritaville is literally 2 mins walk and lots of attractions. I would highly recommend this place.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had the best vacation ever. We stayed at Apartment #8 and the condo was beautiful and well kept. The beautiful beach was right in our backyard and we also had access to the pool which was nice and clean.The staff treated us like royalty, Ms. Thompson was such a sweet lady and Andre was such a gentleman. The condo was well equipped with everything for our day to day needs. I definitely will recommend apartment #8 to all my family and friends and I can't wait to return. David was such a lovely host, he gave me a run down of all the places I could go to enjoy my stay in Cho Rios. I love love love this place

Mixed results

  • 3 of 5

We arrived in Ocho Rios and our driver "Anthony" picked us up and was nice enough to take us to the grocery store. We then arrived at Fishermans Point, not " David Gordon's tropical Paridise" as it was listed. After a very long wait in the lobby without anyone able to tell us why, we finally were told that our condo which we had reserved 4 months earlier was occupied by another guest. They placed us in another rather substandard room and were told they would try to get us into our condo the next day. The next afternoon we did move. The condo was adequate, the bed comfortable. It's a bit run down and could use some repair: hole in the bathroom wall, cold water handle in the shower missing, curtains ripped and faded out. The floors throughout could use a good scrubbing. The condo was convenient to beaches and activities. The Indian restaurant was excellent. Coconuts as advertised did not seem to exist. Edits restaurant is a must.

Owner's Response: Barb and Dan- Thank you again for making it Gordon's Beachfront Tropical Oasis. Firstly, I would like to apologize again for the misunderstanding with our condo at arrival, apparently the receptionist extended the previous guests stay for one more night without consulting the property manager on site. However I'm happy that they had another condo available for you to spend the night until the next day for the transfer. There are 74 condos "Individually Owned" in the complex, some are residential and others are Vacation Rentals. As indicated in the description of our property that Gordon's beachfront tropical Oasis at Fisherman's Complex. We were informed about the shower handle and that they were having difficulty finding one in Ocho Rios and that they are trying to find it in another location. There was a leak from the next door condo that caused a little damage to our bathroom wall and it will be rectify very soon. We're not aware of the curtain being ripped but we know it can't be faded out already, it's a beige curtain. The Entire condo was Renovated in April 2014, new floors in living/kitchen, custom-built cabinets, new AC, granite countertop, New ceiling fan, light fixtures, New appliances, new faucet, brand-new bed, television, chairs, newly built walk-in shower, everything new..That being said, we're not sure why you would make a statement like that saying our condo was dirty and rundown. Lastly, regarding coconut being advertised, I apologize but I'm not sure where was that advertised. We're really happy you guys had a great time in Jamaica and hope you'll give us the opportunity to host you again. Thank you for your feedback as well and we'll use this to continue, to improve our condo. One Love, One Heart, David & Stacy 🇯🇲😎🌴

Great value and location

  • 4 of 5

This little condo is in a great location. It's super walk-able to get to shops and restaurants, to groceries and markets, to the beach, and to a myriad of activities. The daily housekeeper was a very nice plus. The patio was a nice place to listen to the waves. The pool was lovely and clean. The condo had everything we needed. We went during New Year's, so we cannot speak to other times of the year, but Jamaican's like to party. This condo being so accessible to all, it was practically in the middle of the party. This was a good thing in that it added to the experience and to the festive vibe. We really felt a part of the community. However, if you're a light sleeper, the parties will run all night, and it is not quiet. Most condos built in tropical areas are built from concrete and this is not the most insulative sound material. David was a gracious host. He answered questions quickly and was quick to return our damage deposit. Tourwise was located in the lobby and was extremely helpful in booking our outings and transportation for us. We had a great trip. Jamaicans are all warm hearted and lovely. We never felt we or our belongings were unsafe at any moment. In fact, we got the impression that the locals look after the tourists knowing that tourism provides so much to the Ocho Rios economy. We look forward to a return trip soon.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cozy condo for 2 weeks. It was very clean and just the right size for the two of us. The property and landscape is beautiful. The pool clean and warm. As for location it was perfect walking distance to everything. Margaritaville is directly across the street of you're looking to party in the evening. Ms. Thompson our cleaning lady was so sweet. All the main excursions like dolphin cove, dunns river falls and mystic mountain are so close by. I would definitely recommend doing the falls. When I return to jamaica again I would definitely stay here again. My only suggestion is that the key be found for the safe so that visitors don't have to carry all their money with them at all times.

We appreciate your business and we are looking forward to having you back again very soon. One Love🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴🌴

A honeymoon to remember!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to spend our honeymoon together on this breathtaking resort in sunny Jamaica. The staff treated us like king and queen from the time we arrived. We could not have asked for more! Our nicely decorated condo was spacious and fully equipped with a balcony and views of the ocean. We absolutely love this location. We will definitely return with our friends and family :)
