I just returned from a second family vacation at Datura Villa. There aren't enough words to express how sorry we were to leave at the end of the week. Walking into the villa is like stepping back into a more elegant time. Cool breezes slip through the shutters, the rooms are a quaintly decorated, and the staff is superb. Precious...

I preface this by stating that this is my first review submission. I just don't ever take the time to share my thoughts on my culinary, of vacation experiences, however, our experience at Datura warrants this testimonial. My background is Jamaican, we live in the States. We decided to celebrate my mom's 80th and my sisters 50th birthdays. Upon extensive...

Do not miss an opportunity to visit the unique Datura Villa! Location, location, location. The three most important words to describe a place to vacation or live. The Villa has all three. Along with a superb staff included. Our group took all meals and loved the local flavors. Let me just say that the homemade dishes were a delight. I...

A truly beautiful location and amazing staff. We were greeted at the airport by Chisolm and taken to breakfast then Doctors Cove for a beach visit as our plane arrived early in the morning and the Villa was not available when we arrived in Jamaica. Upon arriving at Datura Villa we were introduced to the staff and settled in to...

Datura Villa- What a wonderful adventure! The house is nestled on top a hill with heavenly scenery. I am not a morning person but the beauty of the land and sea was too good to miss a minute of. Not to mention they had coffee prepared for us by 6:30 each morning. The home is on 9 acres, is 5000...

Our weeks stay at Datura Villa was a magical time in a dreamy setting and was just the medicine that I desperately craved!!! The Villa itself is perfect, with every amenity imaginable, but it's the incredible staff that makes the stay one of the best vacation experiences ever!!! The hardest part about being there...is leaving!

Ten adults and two children fit perfectly! We loved everything about our trip! The staff took care of our every need and Chisholm was worth every dime! Our meals were delicious and we ate all but two lunches there! We plan to return with friend couples in the near future. One day at the beach was all we needed as...

We're here currently with 3 other couples and 3 children. If you read the reviews alone it will blow you away as its all positive, however you just gotta bite the bullet and get here. Built in the thirties on 9 acres of land overlooking the bay this property kicks butt. The staff are absolutely wonderful with Shereen heading up...

Within the house is a high-ceiling, grand living room with mahogany floors, a library, bar, TV room, antiques, a screened-in dining room overlooking the aquamarine waters below, and a commercial kitchen.
