The reviews on this property are accurate in that Palmyra is not a hotel and it is a condo development now. If you want a very private vacation, as in you will not see more than 3 people during your stay, this is the place for you. For me and my kids; it felt like The Shining; a bit creepy. It is a huge complex and only 2 of the 3 towers are finished and the 3rd building is an eye sore. The layout of the complex is very funky; but the pool area and the ocean front are beautiful. You will need to rent a car; and be sure to stop by the Progressive Grocery store near the airport and stock up on all supplies. Derrick at the front desk was very helpful. it is a shame that this development is so empty. It really is a nice building and has so much potential, but it seems like they cannot afford to maintain it any longer. For the price and location - is a good value; but just beware that it does feel very empty so if that does not bother you; this is a nice choice. Although I did not meet Sharon; she was very flexible on our check-in and check out times. Thank you!
Our first time in Jamaica and the Palmyra is one of the main reason we will return. The staff were super friendly (the concierges, lifeguard, security). The view from the condo was breathtaking. The beautiful and very private beach was such a therapeutic escape. One of the best pools I've experienced (enjoyed my solo lap swimming every morning). The Ritz-like ambiance of the property without the big crowds of the resorts is an accurate description. We enjoyed Jamaican cuisine every night during our week stay and there were many restaurants nearby to choose from. Our host, Sharon was very responsive.
Sharon's place is the ideal getaway if you are looking for quite and peaceful. What we saw on the pictures is what we walked into. The place is spacious and clean and has a fully equipped kitchen which comes in handy. Both the beach and pool areas are amazing for relaxing and taking in the sun. With few guests at any one time there are always ample lounge chairs to find. It is true that there is very little in walking distance but a short cab ride will get you to restaurants or the grocery store. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. One thing to mention is that there is a so called Bar and Grill attached to the property that works from the am until 6pm. It seems appealing when you don't feel like going out to get food and just grab a burger and drink there....our advice is DONT. They are overpriced (12$USD) for a burger and the greasiest fries you've ever eaten! Beers are 5$ while at the grocery store $1.20 and the thing is beer is not even that expensive at the most expensive restaurants in MoBay. On our last day my wife asked for the burger with a substitute of a salad and we were told no problem and that we would get a discount. In the end they charged us 30$ for one side salad and two burgers! A bit steep considering quality was questionable. Just wanted to give others a heads up to avoid it if you can....we wish we had. Especially since aside rom price my wife had some stomach issues after eating there the last time. But aside from that, every restaurant we went to we loved! Our entire stay was incredible and Sharon was helpful and always available. The staff at the Palmyra were also always available! Overall we highly recommend you spend your MoBay trip at Sharon's place!!
Beautiful and luxurious apartment in an almost deserted condo project, as others have mentioned. Nice beach and pool, (although hot tub is closed), No conveniently walkable restaurants, although many just a couple of miles away. Neat little beach surf causeway to a bungalow off the beach.
Loved staying at this apartment! It is all that the ad said it would be.
High class, friendly staff, extremely quiet. We had the beach to ourselves. If you want to be secluded in luxury, this place is for you.
Please remember this is an APARTMENT. You are not staying at an all-inclusive. There is no food on site. You will want to RENT a CAR and need to get your own groceries.
We would definitely go back.
Sharon was very responsive if we had any questions. We had trouble with the wi-fi, but it was resolved with in a couple hours of our arrival.
I would definitely recommend this place!
Hi Brette, thanks for you great review and I am glad that you stressed that this is an apartment not a resort even though it looks and feels one. I will definately put in hand soap. Come back and visit us in the future.
Very seldom are my expectations exceeded, but this was certainly one of them. It is true that the resort is no longer operative and subsequently one should plan their meals and outings carefully. Having said that, Sharon's place is just another tier of heaven. The views, the luxury and the tranquility are just to die for. I stayed at Sharon's place during a last minute trip. Like really last minute. Sharon had only two days notice yet the place was ready, immaculate and comfortable. I can't say enough about grounds, the pool, the beach and all the privacy. Fully recommend Sharon and her little piece of heaven.
A little PSA announcement: I was concerned about my trip after reading some of
these reviews, but Sharon ensured that all was perfect, so allow me to update you. The wireless internet was great and required nothing extra, the condo was well supplied with tp and other necessities and I had not problem with mosquitos. I would just recommend that you remember you are going to the Sable Palm and enunciate clearly so you don't end up at the Silver Palm, like I did. It was my mistake, but despite that Sharon went above and beyond the call of duty to rectify the issue. Thank you, Sharon!!!
Lastly, the staff on grounds are few, but very friendly and helpful. Derrick and Patrima at the concierge desk were so very helpful and even negotiated to get me a lower cab fare rate on their own. Simply amazing people at an amazing place! Will certainly visit again.
This is a luxury, high-end resort that has had severe financial setbacks. I commend Sharon and others for hanging in there and making their units available through Airbnb. Amenities such as the pool and hot tub were not functioning while we were there, and there were a few power outages (which we were informed of in advance). That said, we very much enjoyed our stay. The beach is beautiful and we had it to ourselves. It was relaxing and quiet and beautiful. I would happily return in the future.
This condo was very nice and clean from the inside and is generally in a nice location.
However, it is currently not an active operating resort (e.g., there is only minimal staff and no services available on site beyond a front desk person that will assist with calling drivers).
It would be wise to rent a car or arrange for a private driver as nearly anything you'd like to do will be a 15 minute drive away.
Sharon was very responsive and even provided certain laundry amenities while we were there. However we didn't get a full roll of toilet paper and when we asked the concierge we were told that we'd have to provide our own.
The biggest issues with this location is the current lack of operation of the resort. This is a clean and nice place to stay but not much beyond that in terms of activities or resources to help visit the island. If booking this condo you'll need to make plans on your own for travel, food and other activities.
I am not really renting the resort I am actually just renting my condo. You should have gotten tp I am sorry about that.
Very spacious, very clean! The beach is exclusive with few people during the day. Tranquil.
As of the day of my visit, no restaurants operated at the property, so car rental is very important. There are many good Cajun restaurants a stone-throw away.
Also, you need a CAT5 cable to connect to Internet when in the room. You get WiFi downstairs.
Loved the place, would definitely come back!
Sharon was a great and easy going host. She arranged an airport pick-up service for me and helped me out with laundry detergent.
Besides, the appartment was beautiful: the kitchen is properly equipped, the bathroom/shower very nice and very clean and the bed really comfortable. On top of that, the view was astonishing.
I can highly recommend it!
