Island Village is suited for the entire family. Enjoy a nice tour of the property, then sit and relax in the theatre to enjoy clippings of Bob Marley and Reggae icons, or drop by any of the shops and pick up your Jamaican souvenir. have kids? take them to the pool area for a nice relaxing swim. Need some adventure/... More

Dressed Up to the hillz, and ready to get down at the clubs, what fun we had! The free drinks made the night, non stop drinks and good music and great vibes. At the end of the night a great tour guide awaiting to take us back to the hotel. YourJamaicaTours.com - jermaine

There were hardly any shops open when we went and the promise of live music on the centre stage brought nothing.

Although a majority of the shops are closed the beach is open on weekends and ship days. The beach is clean and has an extremely reasonable entry fee. Lifeguard on premises and Margaritaville is right there for lunch and drinks. River water enters into sea water so there is the best of both worlds. Sad that most of the shops... More

Very disappointed. Looked like a ghost town. Only a few shops open on a Saturday. Little scary. Several shops permanently closed. Ones that were open weren't too pushy so that was nice.

Love this quaint little shopping area. Each day we were there, it was very quiet. The shops were more upscale than the market but it had reasonable prices.

On day of visit no one open and it was obvious that most had closed down. So we ended up at jimmy buffets restaurant, which made the visit. It's a shame that the place was not open as it has great potential

We wanted to venture out of our resort to do a little shopping and see the town. I had high hopes because we used to live in St. Thomas where the shopping is great. We were disappointed to find that many of the shops were closed. Those that were open were full of workers that harassed us constantly while we... More
