About Dulcia M. Tulloch
My name is Dulcia Tulloch I was born in Nottingham England and have lived in Jamaica for 41 years as I married a Jamaican. My husband and I just love this apartment it has a special feeling of calm about it. You are just steps to the ocean and so you can swim, before breakfast, and then again after dinner. Can you imagine swimming in the ocean with the sunset on the rocks at Chrisanns that's the nearest thing to heaven. I do hope you will choose my apartment and Chrisanns for your special time in the sun. Look forward to seeing you in this special island in the. Dulcia Margaritta owner.
Dulcia M. Tulloch purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Dulcia M. Tulloch chose Saint Mary Parish
We bought this apartment for many reasons. firstly because of the private beach which is just steps from the apartment. When checking in you know you have arrived as the pool and the ocean are side by side. There are three restaurants within walking distance and the same people have been there for years everyone knows you so its home. Chrisanns is a happy place just minutes from Ocho Rios and all activities what more could you want. This is paradise and I consider myself to be very lucky. Come and let us show you Jamaican hospitality. one love Dulcia.
What makes this Apartment unique
What other properties might not have is that from any of the apartments you are just steps to the ocean. As there are only 31 apartment more than likely you will be able to go to the Gazebo and watch the sunset with your loved one by yourself and have the entire ocean just to you. You just cannot find that anywhere else that is what I love the most about Chrisanns. Lastly the Jamaican people always make you feel so special and at home. Do come and be my guest at the paradise Suite (No.9) at Chrisanns Beach Resort. Don't you just love having guaranteed sun. Come and swim in our wonderful ocean. Dulcia Margaretta.

Such a relaxing location!
This apartment is a real home from home. My partner and I stayed there for two weeks and were sorry to leave.
Booking was simple and the owner, Dulcia, very responsive to emails and super helpful. Key was ready for us on arrival, alongside useful information to help us during the stay; air conditioning was on which we were grateful for. The provision of beach towels was really helpful! Charmaine, who cleaned etc for us every day was fantastic, and well deserved of a tip at the end.
Towels were changed daily and everything was kept very fresh! Nice shower (water quick to heat up), good kitchen with all the equipment (oven, hob, coffee machine, toaster, microwave, fridge/freezer) you need. Lounge was comfortable and there were many TV channels (if you wanted something to watch); news (local/other), documentaries.children's TV and movies.We had a few issues with the WIFI, but Dulcia was quick to try and resolve. The apartment does pick up the WIFI from reception (we discovered) so it wasn't much of an issue.
Great balcony which we had breakfast on every morning. Bed was huge and comfortable. We found with the aircon and fan it was just right temp for sleeping.
Lots of cupboard/drawer space was helpful. The extras...e.g. safe, hairdryer, clothes airer, iron+board were much appreciated. Clearly much thought has gone into this unit!
Pool was well looked after and great for a swim, hardly busy when we were there. The dedictaed loungers for the aprtment were much used but there were others available. We swam in the beach 'pool' every day...the home of quite a few fish and an eel as we discovered while snorkelling. I would recommend bringing beach/wet suit shoes, as there are a few rocks but also these are needed for other excurions such as Dunns River Falls and the Blue Hole. My other half swam out of the beach pool on the calmer days; not to be recommended when the sea is rough as the 'gap' is guarded by rocks.
Security at this complex 24hr and gates are closed overnight, allowing pedestrian access. We ate at Glenn's across the road for both breakfast and dinner, highly recommend this very reasonable and very friendly establishment (they do take away which we had following our arrival early evening). Also had some great jerk chicken at the Jerk Centre just up the road.
We used route taxis to go into town, and would recommend.
Dulcia even sent us Easter bread, cheese and mangoes as a gift as we were there then!
Perfect host with a lovely place!
Perfect Romantic Getaway!
My husband and I spent a week here and we had a wonderful stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff and although we arrived early we did not have to wait to check in. The owner of the Villa, Dulcia, was most gracious and very accommodating. She went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The villa was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I especially appreciated her well stocked kitchen. It had everything we needed to prepare meals when we wanted to. The location just outside of Ocho Rios was perfect! Just a short taxi ride to all of the local attractions. This was really a great place for our romantic getaway. We would recommend Paradise suite to anyone.
what a treat
It is hard to add anything new to the wonderful reviews which this property already has. Everything about it was exactly as we would have chosen it to be - the efficient and enthusiastic booking and information from Dulcia, the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the apartment, the kind, attentive (but unobtrusive) help and care from the staff, and the beautiful location. We hired a car from the company opposite Chrisanns (at a ridiculously low price by English standards) which opened up lots of new possibilites for exploring the area - I would really recommend this to anyone who would like to be a bit adventurous. We would like to thank you all for such a lovely visit to Jamaica -and especially to the coffee filter fairy who magically produced coffee filters when I could not find them!
Paradise Suite - truly a paradise!
We absolutely loved everything about Paradise Suite and Chrisanns. Dulcia was always prompt, and ever so friendly with her pre travel communications, information and advice. She arranged a wonderful welcome for us and it made us feel truly special.
The Suite was beautifully decorated, with thoughtfulness and the best of taste. Everything was in working order, there was a great large fridge freezer, the choice of air con or ceiling fans, wifi was excellent, and best of all was the view of the sea and well maintained gardens from the balcony. One last thing - the bed was massive and one of the most comfortable ever.
Everyone looked after us fantastically and all the staff at Chrisanns were wonderfully welcoming, Donovan always gave us helpful advice. We didn't expect a daily house cleaning service and Charmaine was absolutely lovely. Trevor supplied us with coconuts most days and an aloe vera detox one day. He was always out keeping the grounds lovely. Montgomery gave us good advice about the taxis too.
We mainly chilled out at Chrisanns and we went into Ocho Rios most days, buying food at the markets and having a drink with the locals in the market bar. We much prefer meeting local people when we are overseas and we had lots of opportunity to do that during our time at Chrisanns. It was a welcoming haven, with an amazing rock pool, but it still gave us opportunity to experience the local culture.
Thank you for making our honeymoon a wonderfully memorable experience.
home away from home
Dulcia's apartment was a welcome retreat after the busy and sometimes hectic days of sightseeing near Ocho Rios. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the wonderfully comfortable king size bed. The staff at Chrisann's are the best. There for you when you need them but otherwise unobtrusive. It was nice to have the apartment cleaned every day and the fresh flowers were really appreciated. The extra little touches like a table cloth on the outside table and a plant and wall decorations added to the ambience. Although there is not a great view of the ocean we still enjoyed the peace and quiet and beautifully warm air on the deck and used it for every meal. Also used the air conditioner in the evening to cool things down beautifully. I would definitely recommend this spot if you are vacationing in the area.
Better then we could have asked for
we just returned a few days ago from our honeymoon at Dulcia's place. We were there for 15 days and there isn't enough room allowed in this box to talk about all the great things about it.
- Pre-arrival: Dulcia was spot on with replies. She even arranged for a driver (Christie) to come pick us up at the airport which was a huge plus!
- Our first impression was "Yes! it looks like the pictures!". We had been nervous about not going with a resort and we were very pleased with the suite. Its spacious, comfortable and clean. Fully equipped with everything you need. She even had blue mountain coffee for the mornings there already!
- We owe a huge debt to Chase, the security/grounds guy. He is an all around good guy and he helped us make the most of our trip. He took us out on his time off to get great seafood and try all the jamaican fruits (and helped us get them at jamaican prices!). We are grateful for everything and hopes the resort takes good care of him!
- The rest of the staff is wonderful. Charmaine is sweet and does a fantastic job. We appreciated the fresh flowers she always left in the room.
- Go snorkelling in the little beach in front. Its epic, much better than reggae beach, calm water and free! There are snorkels in the room!
- Get the front desk to get Kevin (a local driver) to bring you to the Blue Hole. Our best experience in Jamaica. Skip Dunns River.
- If you want more of a resort type, you can book spa services at Couples Resort which is 5 min walk. We booked massages (awesome) and you can just walk in and use the resort after but we just wanted to go back to Chrisanns.
Staying at Dulcia's place was a special experience for us. It gave us the right amount of access to luxury and freedom to explore. There are so many cool things in Ocho Rios that they don't advertise very well so it pays to be able to talk to locals. I already miss having my morning coffee in the gazebo watching the sun come up.
I really appreciate all the wonderful things you said about my apartment No.9 "the Paradise
Suite" Chrisanns and the staff especially my housekeeper Charmaine and of course Chase.
The staff at Chrisanns are exceptional and do their best to make your vacation in Jamaica one
to always remember. Many guests love snorkelling in the sea pool at Chrisanns. I have
snorkellng gear in my apartment for my guests if you wish to do that.
Thank you again my honeymoon couple for this wonderful review on Chrisanns, Jamaica and
Apartment No.9 the Paradise Suite is at Chrisanns Beach Resort. We are right on the ocean front so its just steps to the ocean. Great for snorkeling and we have an ocean pool which is just great. We are just 3 miles from Ocho Rios so you just have to hop on to one of the local taxi's that pass all the time we call them route taxi's they are very cheap this is what most people use to get around./
Donald Sangster International Airport (Montego Bay) is a 2 hour drive away from Chrisanns. Tropical Tours have a service of US$30 per person one way from the Airport to Chrisanns. Or, Paul my taxi driver could greet and meet at a
cost of US$100 each way.
Approximately 4 miles away from the nearest town of Ocho Rios which offers duty free shopping, other attractions include, Dunns River Falls, Harmony Hall which is in walking distance from Chrisanns. This is home to Toscanini Jamaica's finest Italian restaurant. Swimming with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove and Horseback Riding are very popular.
There are restaurants few minutes walking distance from Chrisanns. Also a local grocery shop is just across the road. Taxis are very cheap and run all the time into the town centre if you need to go to the bank or visit the cruise ships which are always docked in the harbour.
