Oh, oh, did we mention that persons staying for a minimum of seven nights will have the use of a courtesy mobile phone with enough international minutes to let everyone know you've arrived safely and just how awesome this suite is? Oh we thought we left that out by accident.
Now please do not rush your decision, all listings are not as similar as they may seem. Look at what the other options are providing, then make an informed choice, paying less could cost you more in the long run.

We had a great time at the resort! It's just outside the heart of Ocho Rio's and very close walking distance to everything. I'd say the beach is about a ten minute stroll and then the downtown area is about 15 minutes.
Though we arrived very late at night, Brian had two gentlemen ready to greet us and carry our bags to the room. The room itself, was quite lovely and spacious! It was nicer than what the pictures show. The bonus was having a cell phone to call Brian, who was happy to arrange excursions and transportation for us...it was like having a private concierge.
Additionally, the staff at the resort could not have been nicer even though the condos are not considered a part of the resort. They were super helpful and even helped us arrange one hour massages in our room for about $60 each (the low price was a Valentine's Day Special, though they told us they run specials often), which was a great way to cap off a fun day of tubing.
One thing to note is that Condos at the Ridge is part of the Mystic Ridge Resort. That's important because no one knew where Condos at the Ridge was located but everyone knew where Mystic Ridge was located. We had some trouble finding it initially. But once we figured out where it was located, we were very happy!
The only negative about this place are the pillows on the bed. The bed itself is extremely comfortable, but the pillows are very hard and uncomfortable. So while I highly recommend booking this room, I would also highly recommend bringing your own pillow because it'll make the trip perfect.
Brian's place was so easy to check into and so clean. It was the perfect location across the street from the Taj Mahal Shopping Plaza, Town Center, as well as adjacent to the Jerk Center. Easy 5 minute walk to MargaritaVille and some of the best lobster I've had in my life at the Whalers restaurant.
Roger checked us in right as our taxi arrived on scene. He escorted us to the room as well as provided a free cell phone for local calls, answered all our questions, and even provided us fresh fruit juice and bottled water. Roger even called during our stay and checked up on us to make sure everything was smooth.
Excellent location, excellent price, and excellent service. Thank you Brian and Roger.
Aweeessoomee!!!! Where do I start condos at the ridge was amazing Brain made sure we had fruit juices and water in the refrigerator when we arrive which was much needed after climbing the hill. He also had teabags and coffee for us to use in the morning. The room was more than I expected better than what the pics showed. Ocho rios is hot so I was glad the ace was working that ace was kicking I tell you I got really cold minutes after turning it on. My husband and i really enjoyed our stay , the condo is like 5 minutes walk to the town and if you don't feel like going to the town to eat they have a restaurant on site, my husband bought a sandwich there and it was delicious, pool was awesome all I have to say is thank you Brain and we will definitely be back look out for us!!!!!!
Beautiful place, clean, tidy & safe. Everything you will need is close by- jerk centre, bank, waterfalls, beach & bars.
Absolutely fantastic!!! Even better than what the photos show. Brian was the perfect host. Thank you. We will be back again.
We had a great stay here. Brian is a great host -- our bus from the airport was over two hours late, and he waited for us and even called ahead to see what the cause of the delay was. As for the place, it's a nice condo complex, and nice condo. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook and have a good time. The pool and on-site restaurant were also nice -- though expect somewhat pricier entrees at the restaurant. If I were back in Jamaica, I'd stay here again with no problems!
This is really a wonderful vacation spot. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The property was well kept, condo was clean and in good condition. Excellent value for your money. The restaurant on the property served good food, and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Location is ideal, close to everything Ocho Rios has to offer. A nice surprise was the provision of a complimentary cell phone for local calls, and emergency contact with the host. Randy was super in making us feel welcome. We highly recommend this venue to anyone needing somewhere to spend a nice vacation in Ocho Rios. This must be the best kept secret in Jamaica. Go Brian and Randy.

About the Host, Brian
I'm from Ocho Rios, Jamaica which is undoubtedly the eco-venture capital of Jamaica. I like to share my culture with everyone I meet, so be careful not to get me started.I have a passion for the hospitality industry and have spent the last 12 years improving on what I do and how I can better myself in it.
In my free time I do charity work with the local Rotary Club and all other time is spent in the pursuit of knowledge at the local university. Ironically I still lack the discipline to sit and read a book but make it into a sci-fi or action movie and I'm a devout follower. I'd love to take a cruise someday and find the Tri-State area (NY, NJ & CT) the only place to be and not get home sick.
To say my sarcasm is mild puts it lightly. My free time's spent hanging out with friends at restaurants and going to the movies. I also love anime. NARUTO... I love to travel meet new people and buy stuff online. Retail therapy fixes me. lol
I'm happy to share aspects of my culture with all guests by facilitating them with the tools needed to explore my Jamaica independently. I encourage responsible tourism which allows visitors to not only appreciated the cultural diversity and natural beauty of Jamaica, but also the way we live, eat and worship.
Ahmmm, yup..... that's it.
