Good but not great vacation spot
Villa Ann-Marie Review December 22-29, 2019 The good: very large house with attractive outdoor space. Nicely landscaped grounds in compound with several other villas. Reasonably large and clean freshwater swimming pool. Small snorkeling area at bottom of property. Staff are pleasant and there is good 24 hr security. The bad: lengthy drive (2-3 hrs) from MBJ airport. In the immediate area (2-3 miles around the villa) nothing worthwhile - abandoned houses and construction sites, impoverished native homes and trash everywhere. Nearest restaurants and supermarkets about 30 minute drive to Ocho Rios. Villa management likes to work on cash basis which can quickly add up when meals prepared onsite can run to US$300+. Very poor pre-arrival communication - could not get much info on menus and food cost despite numerous messages. Told them I would be driving rental car and they neglected to mention villa has no sign or house number, just a plain wooden gate. Also poor on site communication - asked for nearby lunch recommendation and sent 25 km away to overpriced beach bar. Parts of the villa show extreme wear with broken pool furniture and areas in need of painting and repair. I would not return nor recommend. ”
Awesome resort and wonderful time
Our group had a great stay at Golden Cove, the property is wonderfully manicured and has multiple gathering places and opportunities for relaxation and play. Nadean was unbelievable in helping us with the chef services and other details throughout the stay. The staff was equally helpful and friendly. We would love to come back. Thank you!!!”
Wonderful family vacation
We had our whole family together here for a week, and it was a marvelous place. Very comfortable villa, accommodating 6 adults and two children. Warm, friendly, gracious and talented staff. The concierge, Nikki, arranges for anything you need. The chef prepared whatever foods we asked for. Located not far from Ocho Rios, so many beaches and attractions were readily available along the north coast. Nice swimming pool at the villas. Highly recommend this place.”
