R & R At It's Finest
Location...Location...Location! We just spent 2 weeks at this property. We enjoyed every minute of it. Kitchen is very organized and well equipped. Unit is newly renovated and very comfortable. We absolutely loved the balcony and spent most of our time there (when we we're at the beach) as it overlooked the beach and we watched the cruise ships coming & going. The gated complex is centrally located and offers 24 hours security. Pat the property manager was a gem to deal with very friendly & accommodating. Definitely on the top of our list of accommodations in Jamaica.
Very clean, friendly, great view
This place was a great location right next to the gated beach. The balcony and view were wonderful. It was very clean with helpful and friendly property staff. They hooked us up with drivers and the drivers hooked us up with tour guides for the places we went. The beach wasn't crowded at all, plenty of chairs to rent and helpful staff as well. Vendors were not pushy here. Bed was harder than we like. Check out Evitas restaurant. Thanks! We had a great time!
Very nice place!!! The beachfront view was amazing!!! Pat ( the manger / housekeeper) was wonderful. Safe and secure place . Very clean. Walking distance to bars and restaurants and grocery store. Don’t forget to bring shampoo and conditioner because there wasn’t any. Would definitely stay there again!
Lovely apartment facing the beach in a very pleasant small resort.
The accommodation was clean and well equipped and based in a friendly local resort right next to the beach. It is fully secure and right in the town close to several good supermarkets. The only down factor was that despite being advertised there is no washing machine in the property which caused us some difficulty as we arrived after travelling around the island with several loads of dirty washing. However there is a laundry facility within the resort where you leave your washing to be done by the attendant for a cost of 1100 Jamaican dollars per load.
At the moment there is some construction work going on right next to the accommodation to put down a new landscaped promenade. This means that direct access to the beach and the views from the apartment are obstructed. It looks like these works are nearly completed.
A lot of loud children in the pool. construction work the whole time.
The condo was very nice and well furnished, and comfortable. The housekeeper Pat, was very nice and made sure we had anything we needed. We would recommend it to anyone. But. we should have been told about the construction work. We had a terrible experience with Home away! They were too slow to let Lloyd Wallen, the owner of the condo know what was happening with the balance of payment. the evening we checked in all was o k. but the next morning, all hell broke loose, Lloyds house keeper was knocking on the door and demanding that we pay $1,300. US in cash or get out. The amount was $65. more than we had been given by Home A Way. We could not get anything resolved after hours on the phone. Fortunately we have a bank account in Jamaica and had the cash. Otherwise our vacationed would have been a disaster. The issue is still pending. GOOD luck to anyone booking through home a way.
Our 10 day stay at the Sandcastle was perfect. The condo was very clean, comfortable and couldn't ask for a better view from our balcony. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Having been to Jamaica several times over the past years, we would definitely stay at the Sandcastle again. Was very convenient to the beach, restaurants, supermarket, etc. Lloyd was always very prompt in answering any questions that we had. Thank you, Lloyd!
Ocho Rios is located on Jamaica's north-east coast (the approximate middle of the northern coastline) in the Parish of St. Ann, approximately 11/2 hours drive east from Montego Bay. The town is now the cruise ship capital of Jamaica and boasts large stretches of beaches many fringed by palm trees. Area highlights include Dolphin Cove where visitors can swim with the dolphins and interact with stingrays and tropical birds and reptiles, Dunn's River Falls which is a must experience for first-time visitors. Stepping stones allow visitors easy access up and down the falls under a stimulating shower. Another area attraction of interest is Fern Gully where under a canopy of trees a visitor is surrounded by thousands of magnificent ferns. Finally, for those who are reggae lovers a visit to the birthplace of reggae icon/superstar Bob Marley is a must.
