  • Great Vacation Place-Truly a Paradise

    "We definitely enjoyed staying at Elizabeth's property. Prior to our visit, she was always ready to answer any questions and address any concerns promptly. We loved the location of the condo - right in the center of town with all its restaurants/bars/food markets/souvenir, jewelry, and clothing shops. Property is very well maintained and very clean on the outside: there was a pool that we never got to use, small children playground, beach few steps away from the property itself. Property is well secured (if this is one of the concern). Condo itself was exactly as described - clean, spacious, tons of closet space, unique in architectural way (it's bi-level with spiral staircase-if you have large suitcases, unpack downstairs, much easier that way). We had 4 adults and 1 child staying with no problems. Elizabeth added an extra bed for a child and it worked out just perfect. The condo was well stocked with pots, pans, bowls, plates, etc. It had all the appliances we needed. I was a little apprehensive about lack of stove in the beginning, but got a hold of using hot plates and there was no problem. We definitely enjoyed the outdoor patio. It was great to have a glass of wine and dinner outside with a perfect, almost unobstructed, view of the ocean. We also loved the outdoor shower and used it quite a bit (condo has 1.5 bath). It eliminated morning/evening bathroom traffic. We also took advantage of a washing machine-traveling with a child, it always comes in handy (so grab some Tide Pods with you!). We did bunch of outdoor activities: rented a snorkeling boat right on the beach, drove to Dolphin Cove (5min), Dunn's River Falls (10min). There are plenty activities that we didn't get a chance to do, but will once return. WE LOVED THE CONDO AND WILL BE BACK! One con (has nothing to do with the condo itself). We are a family of swimmers and were very disappointing by Ocho Rios. Beach was very clean and nice, however, water was murky, shallow and rocky. We have been spoiled by the beaches and ocean in Montego Bay and Negril - can't compare to Ocho Rios. Nevertheless, we enjoyed staying at the condo, getting to know Ocho and its surrounding area, sampling local cuisine, and making new friends."

  • Something just missing.

    "Sandcastle is an older complex and that is what I believe we paid for. However there were a few surprises both good and bad. Good: The grounds are absolutely beautiful. It was such a pleaseure to walk around and see the different plants, flowers and trees. Whoever takes care of these areas does a great job. The pool was great. For an older property it was well maintained with fresh paint and twice a day it was treated (Just needed more lounge chairs). The beach area was inviting and seemed to be cared for each day. Bad: we knew our room was going to be older but when we arrived we realized the light in the living room didn't work, the remote for the TV didn't fully work and there were small ants all over the kitchen. We contacted Mr Green and he came the next day, looked at the items and said he would get them fixed on Monday (We arrived on Friday and shared this with him on Saturday), they were never addressed. He did however finally bring some beach towels. His main focus was to get us to use him as our taxi service. He was higher than the people out from of the resort. The second issue was of the workers at the desk, they tried to charge me considerably more for a taxi that the people sitting outside the resort, not resort friendly. Bar area was also overpriced even for Jamaica. Remember there is a max the taxi's can charge but they can come lower, play them against each other. Finally remember the restaurants don't offer much variety so picky people may have trouble. Met some nice people and always felt safe, in and out of the resort gates."

  • Comfortable, clean, practical and cosy

    "Firstly the communication with Teresa, the owner, was easy and direc, she even helped us with transport from the airport, lovely lady. Real! The apartment was fresh, clean yet cosy and welcoming, it had all you needed for a holiday. Everything was easy to get to; pool, sea, shops, fast food, banks, ATM, bus/coach service, market, places to change currency. In short, "I have a fantastic memory of my holiday and would go back yesterday""
