What an enjoyable stay: stylishly furnished as per photos, very comfortable beds, beautiful pool, lovely place to hang out. On site staff caretaker Maurice & house keeper Keisha very helpful & friendly; Keisha will do laundry and arrange shopping & cook real Jamaican food if you wish. We met the owner Alvin who was lovely and showed us around Ochi - thanks for that Alvin!

Bamboo Blue restaurant & bar on beach til 10pm. 12 min drive to the centre of Ocho Rios; can catch cheap local taxis on the main road outside Riu Hotel.

villa/studio patiently waiting 3 wks stay

  • 4 of 5

Pick up from airport - 'no problem' stop on route to property to view historic sites.

Property we booked (12 mnths in advance!) not available on arrival so 'upgraded' to main villa for the 1st week of stay - slight irritation as this meant we had to move to the flat 1/3rd way through holiday and didn't feel able to unpack properly + had a bearing on what trip we could do on the day of the move.

Main villa spacious and airy good air con in the bedrooms. Bathrooms and kitchen could probably do with upgrade.

Pool and gardens excellent Maurice took good care of both.

Studio flat spacious (but would only recommend for two unless young children)

Fridge doesn't work properly, Maurice the caretaker (a top guy!) tried to fix it but no real difference. Power shower functions don't work but shower adequate.

Electrics/wiring are a bit scary but all worked. Microwave kettle and toaster in this room.

Very basic cooking facility in separate room from the studio, (next to the utility room). We ate out as too much like 'camping' for me!

Good wifi, washing machine in utility room available for use

Property clean on arrival - cleaner attended once when moved rooms, and only on one other occasion so were left to do our own linen/towels. Disappointing as bathrooms obviously needed attention.

Location good although if stayed again would definately hire a car. We used the buses which were great fun, and 'Johnny' the taxi driver who is a really lovely guy.

Bamboo Blu beach is fab (3 minute walk from property)- the cocktails lush and the breadfruit chips fab accompliment - dinner in evenings good too.

Scotchies is close to property and really tasty with bar as well, (we saw a firefly when we visited, so cute!) Scallywags and Irish Pub also close offering tasty food and drink - friendly locals.

Little 'shack' at top of road selling beers and snacks open in the evenings very handy on the way home from day/night out!

Dunn River Fall's very close and a 'must do'! Ocho Rios town (10 minute drive) is great fun where we did jet ski and glass bottom boat with 'Captn Jo' and 'Richard'. A Juicy patty is a tasty morsel not to be missed. We also did rafting on Rio Grande, swam in Blue Lagoon, went to James Bond beach, visited St Annes Bay, Kingston, and Manderville.

We wanted to see real Jamaica rather than 'luxury all-inclusive' type hols -this ticked the box.

Jamaicans are lovely friendly people and the island is beautiful despite the poverty that is evident.

Very basic but good location

  • 3 of 5

The property itself was adequate, the best part was the shower which was amazing! There are cooking facilities but these are very basic, however the property is very close to a really nice restaurant on the beach which is where I ate mostly. You have to go through a small gate to get to the pool which isn't apparent by the pictures, however not much of an inconvenience.

Unfortunately the pool was not clean on my arrival, nor was it clean for a few days until I rung the owner in the UK telling him of the issue, which is why I have not given a higher rating. That aside, the pool is lovely, it is the closest property to the beach on this estate and is great value for money.

The caretaker is extremely friendly and is more than happy to cater to your needs. I highly reccommend a massage on the beach by a lady called Winsome and she can also sort a horseback ride up into the village and down on the beach.

Its also extremely close to Dunns River, Mystic Mountain and Dolphin Cove. Brilliant value for money with its biggest selling point being the friendly locals!

We holidayed at patiently waiting in early July for 2 weeks. For the both of us visiting Jamaica was an exciting opportunity, and it was enlivened with patiently waiting. We experienced the 'real Jamaica.' The studio is spacious, well furnished and boasts comfy beds and a power shower (good for a cool down after a sweltering day). Are hosts Maurice (Poo) and Little John were so friendly and we developed a real friendship with them. They would go out of their way to make sure we had the best time we could. They would take us to the local markets for fresh food stuffs, recommend the best attractions, cook traditional & tasty Jamaican dishes for us (if we bought the ingredients), and arrange transportation for us. One key point that isn't advertised in this ad is the fact that the very large gardens boast a number of fruit trees and natural plants: Mango, neesberry, bread fruit, ackee, banana, aloe vera and almond. This was something that we really enjoyed waking up to, fresh fruits from the gardens. All attractions are a short drive away including, mystic mountain, duns river, dolphin cove and central Ocho Rios. The beach which is a very short walk from the villa is the definition of paradise, turquoise sea, white sand, very clean, a delicious mexican beach bar & grill (Get the ribs ;) and watersports (cost). We both agreed it was our best holiday since we've been together and plan to go back in the furure to rekindle our friendship with Poo and little John. Lovely place, Lovely people.... Yeah Mon!
