This is the first time my father, sister and I went to Jamaica. Words can't do justice to describe how great our stay was.
Nancy is an awesome housekeeper who cooked food for our family dinners when we invite our relatives who were staying in hotels but due to their hotel restrictions, they can't invite us. All you need to do is take a walk to the store blocks away from the villa and then take the cab back with some food. Bruce comes by to check up on how things are at the villa and Clive and Jenny are always helpful.
The view of the lagoon from the villa gazebo is mind-blowlingly awesome. The apartment was spacious to have family gatherings.
This struck me on how fortunate I was to stay at the villa. When I went to see my relatives at a "5-star hotel" (I will not name) with my friend from Ocho Rios, I was surprised yet understood to see how angry they were at the front desk. A few mixtures of free rum and punch later and their anger of poor service grew in numbers. If we didn't pay $70 for that hotel's all day pass for outside guests and locals, I'd only grasp a 10 minute conversation with them in the lobby before security kicks us out. You won't get those hassles at Villa Serenity. You'll enjoy the freedom of walking with the locals at Ocho Rios and the clubs and the bars nearby as we did.
I've recommended some of my friends to Villa Serenity when they plan to visit Jamaica. If my friends and family are coming over, we'll definitely come back to this beautiful villa.
