We had an excellent stay at Mais Oui which accommodated 16 of our out-of-town guests for wedding arrangements. The villa was a perfect location and local experience for my wedding party which flew in from all over the United States to stay in the Northern Coast of Jamaica. The owner, Darrell, followed-up on a number of occasions to arrange roundtrip airport transfer for my guests along with meal plan arrangements for the villa chef.
The butler and host Dillion was such a balanced and talented individual. We were impressed with his attentiveness, positive attitude and willingness to assist with guest inquiries. His engagement with our entire party was extraordinary and memorable. Carlton provided onsite assistance with our needs including meal preparation and on the ground maintenance. He had a very pleasant disposition and was very helpful. Audrey was a fabulous housekeeper and could make any room look the very way you found it when you first arrived. The rooms were always beautifully dressed with flowers and fun towel craft creations were a nice surprise. We also very much so appreciated Pet's happy-go-lucky disposition and attention to details with on-site laundry services; she was an absolute gem and works behind the scenes. Sam was also a very pleasant team member --always smiling and always willing to help when we needed assistance. The villa chef Patrick is absolutely wonderful and made our authentic dining experiences such an anticipated part of our stay. Our guests absolutely loved his cuisine! We opted to create our menu, with authentic Jamaican dishes and provided the ingredients from a local market for Patrick to work with. He did not disappoint, simply exceptional.
I highly recommend the location if you want a break away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centers. Mais Oui architecture (interior and exterior) is beautiful. The villa is in a beautiful location just a walk away from Bengal Beach where you can enjoy water sports, in the opposite direction is the newly renovated Puerto Seco Beach in Discovery Bay. Beautifully designed home with ample space for large parties, and transportation provided on an as needed basis. The 2nd level veranda was utilized as a vista point and venue for my wedding ceremony with a beautiful view of the ocean and horizon. Calm neighborhood with several private residences and villas in the area. Safety was never an issue.
We felt right at home and the uniqueness of the villa will provide memories for years to come. Highly recommend Mais Oui for large groups seeking a luxe alternative to resorts.
Just 50 min from Montego Bay airport, this spectacular retreat was ours for 4 days. We were welcomed with rum punch and fresh ice cold face towels. We opted to get three home cooked meals daily, and it was a scrumptious treat every time we sat down to eat. The out door movie theater with home made popcorn was amazing. The cozy beach cove was a mere 3 minutes walk, and the staff were always ready to bring the kayak down for us. We played tennis and table tennis and relaxed at the central and large pool. Three of us had foot reflexology and a deep tissue massage at the spa, and that too was great. The top roof was perfect for sunset watching. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and the layout of the house is perfect for both privacy and community. We couldn't have asked for a better time, and we were a seasoned, well travelled group of women ages 22 to 63. 2 thumbs up!
We just got back from the best multi family vacation we ever had. 3 families. 7 adults 9 kids. Everyone is own beds throughout 8 bedrooms. Big clean a/c rooms all with own baths and balconies. House was amazing. Pool jacuzzi spa gym pool table ping pong table foos ball table giant chess board frisbee golf video games roof top movie theatre kayaks pool and beach toys and tennis court. Endless activities. Food was incredible. Lobster king crab shrimp conch fish filet mignon jerk chicken. India tai Chinese Mediterranean and especially Jamaican. I fed my family of six for 150.00us a day. Unheard of anywhere. Best value ever. We usually do 5 star all inclusives but food always a let down. Not at Mais oui. The staff was incredible. They work very professional and very hard. Best chef oret and best bartender and server Kevin and concierge driver dave. Thank you all for all you did. Wish I could list some negatives but it was exactly as advertised. Darrel thanks for everything. You made it the easiet vacation we've ever had. Great value for 14 days. Can't wait to come back.
If anyone wants more info from me Darrel and put us in touch. Cheers to all. And thanks for a vacation we will never forget. Jon L.
Rented Mais Oui for a 4 day get-together over the Thanksgiving weekend with my siblings/spouses and 3 children and it was a great experience from start to finish. The spacious accommodations were great for our large group, and the house and grounds were well kept and beautiful. Darrell, Ruby, Dave, and the staff went out of their way to make it a special weekend, and I will definitely return if I am lucky enough to arrange a similar stay for a large group in the future.
