“Awesome View, Great Location, Great Time”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Seven of us from Florida met up with 7 other family members in Jamaica. We arrived in Kingston and picked up the rest of the family in Portmore, St.Catherine. We spent two nights in Negril, one night in Ocho Rios, three nights in Portland and one night in Kingston. Only 10 of us stayed in Portland due to work and school.

The stay in Portland was far better than all the other loactions. The Ridge Bay Chateau just had a great vibe. We were met by the owner Gary and the Chef Marva who gave us a tour of the place. There is a huge deck, a roof top balcony and a verandah with a great view. To put in context how great our vacation was at the Ridge Bay Chateau; There was a trough over the eastern caribbean and it rained all three days while we were in Portland. We even did rafting on the blue lagoon in a light drizzle. There were ample accommodation, great food, its near to all the attractions. However, all the ladies including my wife had one pet peeve; they wanted a washing machine for the guests.

It was a pleasure having you all.

5 night stay. Beautiful view. Mava the cook excellent. Everything else disappointing. Photos on trip advisor need to be updated. Air conditioner was broken in our room for the full time we were there and the owner never offered us to stay in the other 1 bedroom suite that he had that had a new air conditioner in it. I felt unsafe having to sleep with the window open just to get some air in the room. The main bed room is dark. There are 3 bedrooms in the house and one does not even have air conditioning. A word to the wise, book through Trip Advisor and do not go directly to the owner. You have no recourse if you run into problems like we did.

Please forgive me in just writing this review, and here we are in April.
The island and people are Lovely!
What a unique vacation stay we had at Ridge Bay Chateau.
The deck and view-amazing! Coconut water from the real deal simply the best, yum.
Ridge Bay Chateau is clean,cozy, and quiet.
Marva's cooking(accomodated both plant eater & carnivore) was such a blessing, still dreaming about each dish; She cleaned for us, took care of us in a very unassuming way.
If you are considering Marva's Excellent Gift of Hospitality during your stay, we highly recommend her.
Thank you Max, Gary, Marva And Mr. Brown
