Prospect Plantation
Reviewed 4 January 2016

We had the most amazing vacation at Wag Water Villa at Prospect Plantation. The activities and excursions were fantastic as we were able to enjoy all that the area had to offer (loved the Blue Hole, Moxom Beach and glistening waters). But what truly made our vacation stand out was the unbelievable staff at Wag Water! They cared to our every need and always with a smile and the traditional Jamaican friendly approach. Madge prepared some of the most amazing authentic Jamaican dishes, Latoya was always attentive to our needs with beautiful flower arrangements and fresh clean clothes every day. Rashane was available to help with all of our needs and was an incredible host. We'll never forget the new friendships we created at Wag Water and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Make sure to arrange a driver for the week. We had Morgan and he was a huge help as we took his lea...

Went with my wife, two kids (8 and 11 years), and father in law. What's treat! Went on the tractor ride with Donovan who was one of the best tour guides I've ever seen-knowledgable, funny, good with kids! The tour is about 90 minutes with numerous stops that provided information on history and nature. Donovan also provided much cultural history, gave us a crash course in the Jamaican dialect, and told us a little about his own family's history. The highlights:
The planation manor, what a beautiful house and that view was stunning.
The coconut demonstration, watch a strange man climb a palm tree then open a coconut for us to sample the water and meat, with cane sugar.

I cannot find all the words to possibly describe this villa. My husband and I came to ja -for I can't even count how many times- to visit our frens here and besides its' location being in Ochi, close to where all of them live, the place is very laid back and very chill. The vibe is perfect for these kind of people. We have stayed at many different villas in the past 2 years and have seen a lot. This villa is by far the best ideal place for our close family and frens. Only if it had more than 4 bedrooms would it be absolutely perfect. The staff is excellent. The butler is on-top-of-it. The housekeeper is very nice and does a very thorough job of cleaning. They have a laid back vibe but are thorough and attentive. The chef we had both times we've stayed at Frangipani is actually not the regular chef/cook there, from what we've heard. The chef we did have, her name is Krystal (not sure of spelling), was the best. Her food tastes healthy and yummy. Cooked to perfection. You can tell she is a trained chef. She was filling in the first time we stayed, and then we requested her the 2nd time we came. The villa is quiet and peaceful. The pier is amazing. It is very serene and a great place to let yourself be in the moment; and let go of any stress, sadness, fear, regret, or any negativity you are holding onto. Plus the 100 steps down to the pier is a great workout coming back up!.. for those who enjoy a good workout...And make sure you take double steps. And don't forget to pee before you walk down, and bring water with you as well. I'm sure there's still a lot I have forgotten to say about this place but I hope what I have said will convince you to give this place a try, and you will not be disappointed.

From gorgeous ocean views to gourmet-quality meals and superior hospitality, my family's recent stay at Eight Rivers was flawless from start to finish. We were so sad to leave Linden, Lorna, and Leslie, who became like family to us by the end of our stay. A highlight of our trip was an elaborate dinner prepared in honor of my daughter's 16th birthday. We will be back, hopefully for a longer stay next time.
