Mr William's attention to detail in every room accommodates for everyone's needs; from WiFi, TV's, music, board games. Greeted by the beautiful scenery, where each morning I said 'good morning Jamaica' to the mountains, whilst in the evening we enjoyed a flow of ready-made ice with rum and ginger-beer in the hammock. I travelled with my children 4 and 8, my partner, my mother and I was joined by my sister and my niece, 17. Eunice the housekeeper is a very nice lady. The owner is also great and consensus of client needs, like double checking if transport was needed from the airport before travelling to Jamaica. The apartment is in St Ann’s, outside Ocho Rios which made travelling more expensive since the nearest shop is a 20-25-minute walk. The pool and the playground were nice. Make sure you either have a car or someone to take you places. We felt safe with on-site 24-hour security. We had a wonderful time. Thanks again for your great home comforts Mr Williams!

Excellent communication from the Owner Neal although I think maybe an information leaflet or something similar would be helpful as I couldnt think of questions to ask, and by the time I did.....it was too late so we figured things out as we went along. The hosts at the complex, Nigel & Renee are absolutely fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for us. We had a great time and even spent a fair bit of time socialising with them as if they were part of our group. The only thing that marred our stay was the driver that generally does the airport pickups and trips around the island, JUNIOR. He is arrogant, extremely rude and false. He is extremely overpriced for his "trips". Around day 3 we questioned his costs for trips being a bit high, as an example he charged US$130 for the airport pickup (each way - approx 75 miles), for a trip to the Marley mausoleam (25 miles away) he wanted to charge us US$140. 1/3 distance $10 more?? (all we wanted to do was negotiate a more reasonable price) his reaction was to shove our money for the airport return at the end of the holiday (US$120 only - $10 short!) into my hand and told us to "do our own thing" then walked away. Nasty, nasty man. He has no people skills at all. We decided to do our own thing and despite warnings of danger, we hired a car, through the host Nigel. We had absolutely no issues driving around the island. You just need to be careful and stay clear of dodgy areas. Overall we had a fantastic time, however my advice to visitors - Steer clear of Junior! My advice to Neal, the owner - Cut Junior loose, he is gonna cost you money through lost bookings! I would definately go back but only on the understanding that Junior stays away completely. If it hadn't been for Juniors attitude etc, I would have given 5 stars.
