About JENNIFER HILTON

I am a businesswoman in tourism, an avid cyclist as well as a self taught artist. Jamaica has been my home for most of my life but I now live between Florida and Jamaica. When I moved my business to Montego Bay, Santa Maria became a vacation home. Even when I go there now, my only regret is when I have to leave. Beverly the cook is just awesome! She loves her job and it shows. Always service with a smile and with graciousness. I love being a guest myself! First class all the way!

Why JENNIFER HILTON chose Crystal Cove

The breathtaking view of the sea from both floors. The expansive verandahs for dining outside and the quiet yet central location.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing sea views

High quality, linens, towels and everything is simply...first class.

The staff; Beverly and Carlos will spoil you so much that you will not ever want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Seaside Penthouse at Santa Maria was everything I hoped to experience during my five night stay. The property is simply gorgeous and so relaxing to be in. I would recommend the penthouse suite "Heaven" if you are only needing one bedroom and looking for a quite place to relax in privacy. The verandah off the master suite overlooking the beautiful blue ocean was absolutely wonderful to wake up to every morning. The complete second floor of the property is your own private space to enjoy especially the oversize marble bathroom with it's large spa tub to relax in. The owner and staff were very attentive to all of our needs and made sure all details of our stay were taken care of. I just want to say to Beverly, you are in a class of the best Jamaican cooks I've had the pleasure of experiencing so far. The food you prepared was great. Keep up the good work. And to Carlos, you are the best caretaker and is very helpful in many ways. I truly enjoyed your caring ways and all you've done to help our stay be most enjoyable. I look forward in spending more time with the two of you in the near future.

Great place to stay in Ocho Rios!

  • 4 of 5

There were 5 in our family that spent Christmas Eve to New Year's Eve 2017 at this lovely Santa Maria penthouse condominium in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. There were only 2 condos on our floor, and the owner of the other one is often not in residence, and does not often rent it out, so it was quiet on our floor and in general the entire week. There are only 8 units in the entire building, and about 6 or 7 buildings in the development, and many of the units were not occupied, so it was a very quiet week. The interior was very nice, and we loved sitting out on the decks, eating or playing a game with the family, listening to the tree frogs do their thing. Beverly and Carlos were super accommodating, and very helpful to us. Cooking was great, and they took care of everything related to the meals that we ate in, restocking, and cleaning. Made our time there carefree! The driver that Jennifer arranged for us was awesome -- Bernard Johnson. We loved that guy! He is originally from Ocho Rios, and apparently knows everyone in town. He tells some great stories, and we loved hanging out with him. He took us everywhere we needed to go, recommended best times for doing things (avoid Dunns River & Blue Hole on the days that cruise ships are in port), as well as best places to dine out. We spent a couple of our days on a day pass to Sandals (walking distance) and Jewel Dunns River, as the beach at Santa Maria is not a sandy beach, but the day passes were fairly inexpensive, and complimented the price for the condo considering how big our group was. The Bamboo Beach Club has a great sand beach, close to Santa Maria, and is less expensive than the all-inclusives. Everything in the unit was as advertised, and very nice. A few hiccups with the air conditioner in Harmony were corrected, but the hot water wasn't working in that bathroom, but we let our daughter take a bath upstairs in Heaven (it really is!), so no problem! For a family of 5 or 6, this is a good deal and we enjoyed our time very much.

Good, but not exceptional

  • 3 of 5

Location was great. Staff was good. Great value for the price! Would have liked there to be AC in the common area and a stronger Wi-Fi connection in areas other than the common area.

Gorgeous Property & Kind Staff

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for a quick weekend getaway and stayed in the Penthouse suite. Upon arrival we were greeted by the security gaurd and escorted to the unit by the housekeeper and handyman. My mind was blown when we walked in and saw the beautifully decorated apartment and the amazing view of the ocean. The housekeeper and handyman were so kind throughout our stay and even made us an amazing Jamaican breakfast before we left! Note, although there were only two of us the apartment was large enough for many more. I highly recommend this property and plan to visit again with friends later this year!

Car: recommended

Ocho Rios, located on the north central coast of Jamaica about one and a half hours drive from the airport in Montego Bay. This small tourism town is home to many attractions.

The one you should not miss is a the visit to the Dunn's River Falls. The falls are tiered like a wedding cake and with the help of an expert guide you can climb to the top! It’s exhilarating and exciting! Just nextdoor are the Mystic Mountain where you can take a Bob Sled ride or go ziplining through the trees, or you might prefer to swim with the dolphins at Dolphins Cove. There is horsebackriding that takes you in the blue Caribbean seas or you might want to try visiting the coral reefs either with snorkeling or scuba diving trips.

Further inland visit the Bob Marley Mausoleum at Nine Miles or for those looking for a charity we suggest Widows Mite in Murray Mount. Definitely go out to Scotchies one night for famous Jerk Pork or Jerk Chicken and a visit to Miss T’s restaurant, a 5 minute drive away is bound to delight.

There is a lot to see and do and SEASIDE is the perfect starting point from which to discover this very special island, we call home!
