Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful trip! Palashia Villa is magical. Our group of 16 was easily accommodated and each room is uniquely special, reminding guests they truly are staying in paradise. Worries and stress were quickly forgotten. There is enough space to accommodate a large group, and common areas promote opportunities for socials and fun. Everyone’s needs were met, above and beyond. Sally, Sonia and Taylor were amazing. Always smiling, they worked very hard, and we enjoyed wonderful meals including a delicious Easter cake. The ladies rum punch is a must! The pool is perfect, and the private beach is one of a kind. Though the Villa can accommodate, Andrew’s Tour Company came highly recommended by friends. Andrew and Warren took us on terrific adventures that included Luminous Lagoon, 9 Mile, Blue Hole, and local shopping. We look forward to returning!!

Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I must say we really enjoyed our stay at Tangerine Villa. We had a group of 11. We were greated at the airport by Denton who provided transportation our entire stay. Very nice and kept saying no worries mon you're on vacation. Upon arrival at the villa we were greated by Mrs. Jackie, Mrs. Nola, and Taylor aka T.I. They were awesome, friendly, approachable, always smiling. Fabian was great too, he arranged several activities for us. The food that was prepared was delicious. During our stay we visited Mystic Mountain, Dunn's River Falls, the craft market, several shopping centers, horse back riding, and sailing with Andrew on the Wet n Wild. We enjoyed all the activities. The boys received sailing lessons from Andrew and Captain Mark. Any issues that arose were immediately addressed. Needless to say we didn't want to leave. Thanks for a great time!!!!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Jamaica many times. First Negril and then the Jaquar Vllas for the past 3 trips. Highly recommend. There are no surprises. The pictures of the villas are on their website along with local activities and prices. The driver is great - takes you everwhere and is reasonable. This is one of the most beautiful places to stay. Fantastic grounds and truly a most relaxing stay with all the comforts of home. The villa we have rented has always been in pristine condition. Well equipped and beautifully furnished. The staff are the cherry on top of the cake, professional, fun and hard working. Cant say enough about them. Avocados from the trees above your bedroom, limes from the trees by the pool, bananas just within a reach from the front door. Live the life you love !!!

Best villa,gem of the Caribbean

  • 4 of 5

Family Reunion over Christmas Holidaze ! Best trip ever. Tons of things to do for everyone in the group; went to 9 miles, swam under waterfalls, went snorkeling on a glass bottom boat in front of Mick Jaggers house, Jamaica beach party with bon fire and fresh fish dinner was definitely a blast, not to forget kissing dolphins! Even the older folks had their special day at the Cranbrook Gardens, enjoing the beauty of the tropics. The staff deserve a big thank you for all the hard work they put in for making sure our vacation and Christmas was perfect! – thanks so much for all the awesome Jamaican food. Christmas dinner was so special too, could not be better. Christmas in Jamaica is great, the whole island is on Christmas vibes, without any of the stress at home.

First trip to Jamaica but not last!

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you for the warm hospitality!

Very memorable week spent at the villa! Our first time in Jamaica.

Staff were easy going and always full of smiles - the personal touch and thoughtfulness made us feel welcome and at home. Great service to all!

Very impressed by the villa's Zen style design and decor - we got to relax and unwind in abundance of living space.

Kitchen very well equipped and a drinking water from the tap was lovely. Bed was spacious and comfy.

The huge pool is just right to swim and cool ourselves in a midst the hot weather. The direct connection from the pool to the house is very thoughtful. The outdoor garden added the extra tranquility to our stay. Not to mention the elegant serving for the breakfast. Villa is conveniently located within walking distance from the beach.

Tangerine Villa exceeded our expectations in many ways. Highly recommended for holidayers looking to chill out in peace and being spoiled by the lovely staff.

We look forward to staying at Jaquar Villas again in our next holiday to Jamaica. Maybe we will try Palashia Villa next time.

We are coming back

  • 5 of 5

A group of 29 coworkers and myself enjoyed 2 weeks of corporate retreat at Jaquar Villas.

This property is awesome. The accommodations, yoga pavillion and work space was ideal. Very comfortable and spacious. With a 20 MB fibre internet connection provided as per our request, it was the perfect location for us. Work combined with fun activities, amazing food and dinners during sunsets. The staff and cooks made our stay in Jamaica very special. We were just minutes away from the private beach, golf course, Dunns River Falls, Green Grotto Caves and many other activities. No need to look for an other place for our next year's retreat - we are coming back here !
