Just wanted to write a quick review on Malatia in Jamaica. We had our Christmas and New Years Vacation at this villa. I cannot express in words what a wonderful time we had at the Malatia. There were 6 adults and 3 children and there was something for all of us. The food was excellent thanks to Alton and Dexter the chiefs. The villa was keep spotless and so comfortable. We were all spoiled by Jerome the butler and everyone there. We went to swim with the dolphins @ Dolphin Cove. We went to climb Dunn\'s River Falls and went to town jewelry shopping. We never left the villa expect for once to eat out cause you could not beat the food and service at the villa. I would highly, highly recommend this villa. There is so much more I could rave about but you really need to go experience it yourself.

Our fondest vacation memories include our stay at Malatai. The pristine beach location was perfect for our children as well as ourselves. We have stayed at some of the finest resort locations worldwide and have never experienced a staff who looked after our every need with such love and care. At the time our youngest were 3 months and 2 years old. All of the staff embraced them as if they were their own children, allowing us time to ourselves anytime we needed it. We stay in contact with our new friends at Malatai and will surely visit them again soon. Bob at Villas Caribe can give you our phone number if you would like to here more about this amazing experience. Feel free to call us.
