In common with many reviewers, the enormous beautiful landscaped grounds, the peace and quiet, the spaciousness of each secluded villa, the virtually private beautiful beach were all just about perfect. Equally, however, the villas do need renovation - not to make them over glam, just to have new windows, upgraded bathrooms, and softened a little with a rug or two, and a few paintings or wall hangings. We liked the lack of television, but there could maybe be a DVD for the occasional bad weather or evening in? Breakfasts were OK, in a lovely semi open setting - it would be good to have a publicised option of a cooked Jamaican breakfast. (We managed to order one, which was excellent, but seemingly had to be made offsite and brought in.) The beach bar could also be renovated and brightened up a bit. It's a shame there are no proper restaurant facilities on site - seemingly the owner doesn't want to take business away from the local establishments, but he would presumably employ locals on site anyway and could source all the ingredients locally too. Whilst there are places to eat nearby, none are walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful. The place really grows on you - if you want peace and quiet, privacy, sea views, an excellent beach, great value, not too worried about 100% luxury, this is the place for you.
