Upon arrival we were completely blown away by the spectacular view, it is really out of this world. We were met by Valarie at the front desk. She took us next door to meet Sheila & get our keys. Valarie also took us to the local grocery market & gave us some suggestions of various restaurants in the area. As we were unpacking Pauline arrived, she's awesome & was very helpful during our 3 week stay. The condo has everything you need; it's very clean & comfortable. We spent our days wondering around Ocho Rios, visiting the markets, & relaxing on the beach. If you are looking for a no hassle relaxing vacation look no farther, book this condo. We are looking forward to a return visit.
It was a lovely time of the year, weather was perfect and so was the Condo. It was quiet, but with a ocean front view. It was perfectly maintained and clean. It was just perfect in size and functionality. Location is perfect to town, but just far enough that it is quiet at nite. Best of both worlds the pool was nice.

We stayed at Lloyds studio condo and it was absolutely perfect! Everything needed for cooking a few small meals from pots and pans to dishes and wine glasses. The location is perfect as well. Many attractions from Margaritaville, to downtown restaurants and bars just minutes walking. We're going back sooner than expected! A hidden gem you don't want to miss:))

Sandcastles is an older complex, but well maintained. The ground are beautiful and cozy. It is not an american style resort, which is exactly what were getting away from. It felt like a home away from home, except that you woke to sunshine everyday, and fell asleep to the sounds of the treefrogs! Very quiet and family friendly. The lifeguard is amazing! we witnessed his skills a couple of times and think he had eyes in the back of his head. The pool has a small slide and shallow area(2.5feet), but the deep end goes to 9 feet separated by a rope and buoys. Noella who runs the restaurant in the building does amazing food. We had a party and she cooked for us and even our Jamaican friends were impressed at the authentic flavours. The spa also is great with a great atmosphere and Dawn and Opal are great and also great resources fro the area. Diving is a very short walk across the beach at Garfields. Diver Lloyd is a great instructor. We only wish they'd fixed the propellor while we were still diving. It was fixed the day we left! It really is walking distance to everything, and the General Store right by the crafts market is tiny but has everything your could need and probably more. Great wine selection too! No complaints here at all! Our friends had untis D17 and 18 and they also loved it. We're all planning our next trip back to these units! Owner Lloyd (not the dive guy) and his wife have done a great job of their units, and he was most helpful!
I truly enjoyed my stay at this property. I came across this property on a last minute vacation to Ocho Rios. Lloyd, the owner was friendly and immediately answered all my questions. Upon arrival at the condo, all the pictures and information on the website was accurate. This condo is across the street from the beach, and only door steps away from restaurants, banks, Margaritville, and so much more. I love my stay, and look forward to many more stays at this condo/resort!
