Greatview is one of the newest and most luxurious of the Montego Bay, Spring Farm villas overlooking the Half Moon Bay golf course and the Caribbean Sea.

The interior spaces are a perfect combination of taste, beauty and comfort. French limestone and exotic bamboo floors, Barbados coral stonewalls, Venetian glazed walls are all part of the exceptional attention to detail.

Absolutely great experience with Villas Caribe! They blew us away by making sure every detail was taken care of from arranging a driver to pre-stocking the villa with food and drinks and forwarding our menu preferences to the private chef at Greatview. The chef will absolutely spoil you with thier culinary talents, not to worry though, there is a gym and steam room at your disposal and butlers Ricardo and Alrick will be more than happy to help you work off the extra pounds with a trek up to Mt. Zion. Greatview is definitely a place to stay with plenty of room yet very private, you can enjoy your time there in your own private pool or hot tub. Head butler Aaron is on hand to make sure your stay is as stress-free as possible. We can\'t say enough about Aaron\'s professionalism - the moment we arrived at the entrance, Aaron was there to greet us with cocktails in hand! No need to worry about laundry, the staff is there to make sure your sure your clothes will be waiting for you cleaned and pressed each morning. With such a great experience, we\'ll definitely be visiting GreatView again and we\'ll be making our reservation through Villas Caribe!

Words cannot describe how pleased we were with our trip. The villa was even more stunning in person! We particularly enjoyed getting to know the staff - they were all so accommodating and relaxed. Our kids are already asking when we will be returning. I have a few pounds to lose after eating three complete meals a day, starting today! This vacation was made special because of the villa, the staff, the view and the natural beauty of Jamaica.
