It's well maintained and fresh looking, there was plenty of everything, towels bedding, the kitchen was well equit. Another great thing was there are English plugs, the apartment is next to the pool, which was great for the younger children, it's on the ground floor which was also a plus.. There's nothing I would complain about, we did have a leak which was sorted quicker than I thought it would have been, being it happening on a public holiday. Karen the house keeper keeps the apartment spotless, she and the owner are always on the other end of the phone or email making sure your stay is good and there are no problems.. I've stayed in Ochi for years, hotels, villa' this place comes to the top of my list and I will be booking it again when I go back and I also highly recommend it to others..Sandcastle it's self is a great convenient resort, it was my first time staying there after passing it hundreds of times. The front of the resort doesn't do it any justice, it needs a coat of paint, inside is well maintained, There is a new promenade being built at the moment, when that is finished it will enhance the resort, sun beds were free on the beach but limited, I had no trouble getting one. Like I said before sandcastle and this apartment are a little gem along a street that is the hustle and bustle of true Jamaica which for me is why It feels like home when I'm there.. Thank you very much for making my stay so comfortable.

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.
