We rent from a private owner each year and don't have a problem with Mrs Dunn. Any time we ask for something we seem to get it and are treated every well. We go for three months and enjoy ourselves. We know it's not a five star resort but comfortable for us and our company each year. It's a condo...

Booked for 5 nights but checked out after one due to someone coming into the apartment while I was asleep. Tried to speak to management about his but he was too busy in a meeting. Needless to say I wont be going back here.

Warning do not rent Condo C34 from Mrs. Dunn. This Condo is an absolute dump complete with Cockroaches and Ants. Rusted and broken kitchen appliances,stove and pots and pans. Landlord does not fix anything and all she says is "sorry". Mattress full of filth and stained. Both bathrooms in disrepair. Do not be scammed like we were. My advice is...

It was gated, safe, staff was friendly, and super close to the beach. Nobody bothers you if you wanna chill by yourself in your room. There's a restaurant on site you can go to. I loved the pool, it was clean and well kept.

I stayed at one of the privately owned apartments: Ocho Rios vacation resort properties. It was the best decision ever. I did not have to be woken up for "room service". It is close to a lot of facilities and tourist attraction sites and Knuttford Express bus service depot. The beach is secluded. And closes around 18h00. The house keeper...

Spent a week here for Christmas. Booked a privately owned apartment #29A. Clean and simple apartment with a great view, well supplied kitchen, and walking distance from grocery store and restaurants. Beautiful grounds. Thanks so much to Christian (the owner), Semone (our housekeeper) and Norman (our driver) for good suggestions and friendly help. Much more enjoyable than being locked into...

Perfect. Just Great! NP's what-so-ever! Stayed for a week and the accommodations were just perfecto! Room Services were the best. I may go again someday, however, there are many other places I still need to see! Unless, of course, one of my friends' want to get married in Paris or somewhere, I will be there for them!
