Beautiful apartment, beautiful view and balcony. Pictures are very accurate. You can see, hear and feel the entire vibration of sweet Ocho Rios. I had a wonderful stay.
Would have been nice to know that there is a camera in the house which made me uncomfortable. However it is only facing the entrance door.
Check in and out was easy and support staff was very attentive. It can get a little loud at nights from the music and happenings of the town but its part of the experience. Ocho Rios is charming and the breeze from the balcony will sing you to sleep any time of the day.
