  • Great time in Ocho Rios

    "First thing you should know about this place his that you must have Mrs Hinnes (Barbara) cook for you... She cooks great traditionnal meals, with love and attention, she is so sweet and loving, thank you so much Barbara for your good care. The condo itself is bigger than the pictures actually let you see, the big porch is certainly one of the main highlights of this place and the kitchen is very small when you're two inside it's crowded. The condo is perfect for 4 persons, if you don't intend to cook yourself. The general condition of the inside is average don't expect it to be like a Hilton, but all & all it was satisfactory to us. The pool is almost a private pool since 9 times out of 10 when we used it we were alone... Mr. Powell was very responsive and we appreciated the fact that he checked with us the firts days to make sure everything was good, we had a small issue with air conditioning and Wi Fi wich was taken care of in a diligent time. What you need to know: - there are no screens on the widows and opening so at knight you do get some of bitting muskitos comming in, you should bring repellant. - The condo as a magnific view because it's on a hillside, wich also means you will have to go up hill comming back from town and there are many steps from the pool to the condo, plus there are 27 steps in the straicase to get to the condo. For us this was not an issue we used that as a work out, after our 3 weeks stay our cardio was used to all that climbing. - We had a deception, we were charged $100 000 Jmc for the glass on top of the dinning table, one night we were having diner and our arm were resting on the glaas on the table which had a tablecoth under wich seemed to cause a space, thus resulting on pressur on the sides we heard a crack and notice the glass splited from side to side right in the middle. We had to pay that amount even if it never was replaced nor got a written estimate from a store, we kind of felt we got the short change on that one, since we feel it was more a flaw of the way it was installed than an abusive use of our part. I would recommand you ask the glass to be removed prior to your arrivale to prevent this very irritating situation to happen again. We recommand this place you get you're money's worth and more, at no time when felt not secured. Frank (4 adults in their 50's)"

  • 3 weeks at a lovely spot - ideal if you drive

    "I spent 3 weeks at the Almond Tree Villa (main house) Dec 2016-Jan 2017. The Villa is a 5min drive from Ochi Town - perfect for those wanting to be in the mix of things but who also want to retreat to living like a local in a nice residential area. Perfect hub for those travelling around the island – 90 mins to Mobay, Portmore or Portland, 45 mins to Linstead, 60mins to Spanish Town, just under 2 hrs to Kingston. I made regular journeys to these places and back within a day which was a big plus. In terms of transportation, the White River turning leads you to the roads up to the villa also leads to a well established community & therefore there are taxi's every few minutes for those not driving. As long as you are prepared to walk out to the main road (a 5 min walk). Personally I drove, as did quite a few of the other guests - there is ample parking at the property and it makes getting around very easy. Highly recommended especially if you are used to driving a left hand drive. You will save lots of money by driving. The rooms are spacious with all amenities as listed and the main house was perfect for our needs, I would definitely stay at the property again. There were a few initial hiccups which were mainly to do with the lack of information on arrival and cleaning/presentation of facilities I reached out to the owner Neil and like always he resolved all issues within a day or so - quite typical of his communication even before I arrived at the Villa - always helpful and willing to rectify any issues., the perfect owner. A few things to note: Cost of Transportation. We hired the service of Junior as recommended by Neil to get us from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios. The cost of this was approx. $70US! Please note there are much more affordable options to get from the airport to the villa - you can pre book/pay online many services which will cost 30-50% less (like for like) however what you may not get is Junior's wit, charm and insight into the villa and advice on local activities etc. So in the end we were happy to pay the $70US but there are cheaper options. - At least 60% of the time there was no hot water when showering, not uncommon in the Caribbean but for a guesthouse something that can be easily solved. - We used the washing machine service 3 times and 2 of those 3 times there was either no soap powder or fabric softener which should come as part of the service. All in all it was a great stay, I would be happy to return."

  • Clean and comfortable

    "The apartment was as described, the owner was very responsive and helpful in providing us with reliable local drivers - she even called the airport transfer companies to ensure we had no issues with the transportation we booked. Beautiful view from apartment. Mahogany beach was small and perfect for us as we have young kids and my husband and I were able to relax. Walkable distance into town but not 5 mins. Enjoyed the nearby local restaurants which offer very good food at extremely affordable . Would have appreciated spared linen as had little kid and spare additional toilet supplies - we stayed over the new year period so maybe that had an impact on the housekeeper's availability. We would stay there again."
