Neighborhood was quiet, safe and secure. The description was accurate and Tony made sure we felt very welcomed
Everything was OK at Yoga House. The bedroom was nice and comfy, also the bathroom. Josh, the guy who works as the host, was very helpfully and friendly. The location is pretty good, is not near to the main beaches at Port Antonio, but you can take a cheap taxi to get there. Thanks Yoga House!!
The Dolphin Bay guesthouse was an ideal location for me and the stay was perfect. The room was spacious and clean. Josh was a perfect host showing me places in Portland Parish. Tony stepped in when my baggage got lost and I did not have phone on me due to Christmas day shutdown of Digicel. He arranged for his mom's contact no which was very helpful. Had a minor toilet issue, which Josh fixed it immediately (while placing the call for the plumber as well who was not needed). Overall I had a very happy stay. I would recommend for friends and families as the route taxi is available to get into Port Antonio city in a walkable distance. And the place is very safe as I had left my valuables on the bed and chairs all the time and did not lose anything.
I feel like the other reviewers must have stayed at a different Dolphin Bay Yoga Guest House than I did.
The first thing I noticed when I was shown my room was that it was not what was promised in the posting. I am willing to accept that it's not entirely clear in the ad which pictures go to which rooms, or if different rooms have different features, but because the listing indicated a kitchen, wireless, and TV I at least expected those things. What I got instead was an invitation to put things in the fridge of the staff person in the adjoining suite. There is no TV in the room at all, the wireless never worked all weekend.
I was also shown the on-demand hot water system in the room, but there was only hot water for about 30 seconds at the beginning of each shower.
Is DBYGH good value? Perhaps. But my disappointment in the wide gap between the advertisement and the posting makes it hard for me to judge. The room was spacious. Stuffy, but spacious. Make sure you bring A LOT of mosquito repellant - a stagnant culvert runs through the property and is a perfect mosquito hatchery.
Other reviews have mentioned the friendly staff; I never saw anyone all weekend except Josh when he was leaving at the end of the day or returning in the morning. It wasn't a problem, just not what others have said.
The floors were so grimy that I wore my flip-flops the whole time - especially in the bathtub, which was a bit slimy.
I had three criteria when I was looking for a place to stay - wi-fi, hot water, and cleanliness. I expected those three things from DBYGH, but sadly didn't find any of them.
I am so sorry you had this type of experience at the guest house. This is something that never happens when I am there which is usually. I will be sure to investigate and rectify any of the problems that you addressed. I think had you brought up these problems during your stay they could have been addressed immediately. Nonetheless, thank you for opinion, and like I said these unusual incidences will be rectified. -Tony
We had a great time at the guest house. Great location and massive room. Tony and his buddy josh were awesome. One of them was always around if we needed anything. The room was very clean and we felt like we could really spread out and get comfortable. The only negatives were that because of a large grassy area there tended to be lots of mosquitoes at night (which they did provide mosquito nets for) and because the ceilings were so high (which is also great) the ceiling fan didn't really reach us in the bed. Otherwise, highly recommended!
