We had a wonderful time on our vacation! Our condo at Sandcastles in Ochi had everything we needed - hot showers, A/C, soft clean towels, cold fridge for our drinks and fruit. The bed was comfortable enough, the grounds were beautiful and it was all for a great rate as well. Ochi was a cute town and a good launching point for all the activities we did. We had our own guide/driver so I never met Tony.
Nice place to stay - clean, comfortable and quiet, right in the center of Ocho Rios. Big and light room overlooking well-maintained green gardens. White furniture, good big beds, small kitchenette, fridge, tv, air-condition, wifi (and other things) will make you feel at home. This apartment is a part of a resort property with gated access, outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, beauty clinique, tour desk, and free access to the beach. The staff is welcoming and helpful. I was a pleasure to stay there.
I don't like leaving bad or average reviews unless I feel it's absolutely called for so I'll start with the positives. Although we never met Patrice (we were checked in by a housekeeper) she was very friendly in all our communications prior to arrival. Also, the location of the unit is good and central to everything....now the bad parts. The air conditioner remote had been taken by the previous guests a few days before and was not replaced. This would've been more bearable if it wasn't for the fact that the ceiling fan also didn't work. We had a very hot, uncomfortable stay and a message to Patrice on the first day regarding these problems went unanswered. The shower was VERY small. Actually the entire bathroom was very small! All in all not a very nice stay unfortunately.
I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. Unfortunately, I have no record of a message from yourself after you checked in. The last message I have from you is the one thanking me for the information I sent you and informing about your plans to contact Tony (the gentleman in charge-I live in the UK) about your arrival time.
. This guest did promise to have the remote returned. unfortunately this did not happen.Once again accept my apologies for the issues air conditioning.
I got in around 6 pm and the key was left at the desk. I had 3 suitcases to carry to my room and even though this was a private rental the young lady at the front desk of Sandcastle left her desk and help me to carry them.
I never saw Tony but when I called him he was able to take care of all my questions.
The place was lovely and yes there was Wi-Fi and lots of hot water. I know I will be using this place again and yes I would recommend this place.
Loved the space, conveniently located. Good enough for what we needed. I would stay there again.
First Time Using AirBnB and it was totally easy. I chose Patrice's studio due to the location (EXCELLENT) and it was a steal compared to what the rates were for that particular weekend at any hotel in the area. I found it perfect for a quick getaway, it was clean, the A/C worked perfectly ( and that's a HUGE deal). We actually chilled and watched TV while we ate KFC.
TIP: Bring your toiletries: Soap, toothpaste etc., I forgot mines. Tony brought us soap and there was a store onsite to buy toothpaste but bring your own. I had to request clean towels as well.
The only CON I have was the shower was on the smaller side, I think it would be better if it was sliding glass or instead of curtains because i'm very particular about shower curtains touching me. LOL! and they were pretty big and heavy and just in the way. But its nothing that I couldn't manage since I'm Petite. Overall good stay, good price if your on a budget or just in Ochi for a short trip where you'll be out during the day and just need a place to shower and sleep. Thanks Patrice and Tony.
Enjoyed my stay in the studio apartment. Arrived there the place was nice, clean and right near all the fun. The beach was walking distance food as well. The food and drinks were good and reasonable at the resort. I will defiantly be booking here again.
My name is Patrice. I am originally from Jamaica. I grew up in the parish of St Mary which shares a border with St. Ann. I fondly remember my childhood walking along the shiny blacksand beach picking almonds and admiring the views.
I have been living in the UK for the past 12 years.
Been to Italy last year, so so hot. The blue sky and beach on Marina Di Massa made for a relaxing trip.Fresh back from back from 4 weeks in Jamaica half of which was spent in my place. Spent the rest of the time in Negril saw lots of family and friends and loved Sweet Spice. If you ever go to Negril you must eat there. I know I am biased, but beaches on Marina Di Massa has nothing on the beaches in Jamaica. Apologies for any late replies!
