Lloyd and Pauline are the two greatest people ever. This is the first time I stayed at one of Lloyds properties and now im hooked. The condo was so well kept. With everything I needed to cook for myself!!! The balcony over looked the ocean and I could hear the waves through out the house. Pauline is the sweetest she made sure I had everything I needed. She even did my laundry which was great. My friend rented Lloyds condo next door and we were able to connect the two!!! The condo is just a short walk from everything. This will be the only place I stay at for now on!!!
“A very relaxing and peaceful vacation”
I stayed in another condo earlier this year when I was in Ocho Rios, and I must say the experience I had this most recent time was 100 times better. This condo was very clean and organized. There was always of plenty of towels and such available. And Pauline (the housekeeper) did come to clean when she said she would, and did a fantastic job. This made the entire trip very peaceful and relaxing. It also overlooked the beach, and the beach was directly downstairs. I would highly recommend this condo.
“"Peaceful, restful vacation"”
I was very pleased with the overall experience of my vacation. Pat was waiting for me at reception and was very helpful in showing me to my room and to the grocery store, truly went above and beyond. Lloyd was very responsive to all of my questions and accomodated me last minute even when my dates changed slightly. The apartment is very peaceful and has a great view of the ocean, I would revisit in a heartbeat. Thanks again to Pauline and Sheila as well for their incredible hospitality.
“A hidden gem”
We just returned home from an excellent vacation at Sand Castle resort and although we would like to keep this place a secret, we felt it would proper to share. The beachfront property delivered everything as stated in the Vrbo ad. The owner of the unit answered any questions we had prior to our arrival and we were very grateful for his prompt responses. He even called phoned us to discuss the property. When we arrived, we were greeted by Pauline and Sheila. Pauline was a very gracious host. She took us to the general store and helped us select groceries for our stay. She also prepared some fantastic meals for us. It was a treat to return from the beach to the aromas of wonderful home cooked meals, an immaculately clean unit and flowers in our rooms. We dined on snook fish, pork roast, curry chicken (to die for), and akkie and saltfish. She is a warm loving woman that takes great pride in her work. A wonderful ambassador for Jamaica. The home cooked meals were a nice balance to dining at the restaurants, all within walking distance. Some of our favourites were John Crow, the Jerk Center, Evita's and Margaretaville (they were kind enough to open their doors at 6:00 am on a Sunday so the Canadians could watch the men's Olympic Gold medal hockey game). The resort is under new managment and it shows. There was daily activity as people worked on the grounds, security was always present, the spa is offering anything from pedicures to massages, and Rodger was busy preparing poolside lunches/suppers for a very reasonable price. We met a number of fellow Canadians on our trip and hope to see many of them again at Sand Castles. We look forward to going back to Ocho Rios to stay in D15 and visit with our new Jamaican friends and with Pauline...we miss her already.
“Nice and well equipped”
This Studio is nice placed in the resort just in front of the beach and by the gate to the beach. It´s nice and newly painted but the bathroom and closet is outdated. It´s well equipped and towels where changed during the week we rented the studio apartment.
“Place to base your adventures!”
What a marvelous place - truly Paradise with an Ocean View. We arrived just before Xmas and were greeted by Pauline and Miss Sheila. They helped us with the local customs and settled us in before the big Xmas eve events in the town. They even put up a tree for us! The condo is well stocked and maintained - we didn't lack a thing. Pauline can make you great dinners with all local ingredients. Something to definitely enjoy. The view from the balcony is unmatched. Sometimes you see a quiet beach - the next day watch the reaction to the cruise ships with roaring jet skis and party boats leaving the harbor. We were also treated to 2 weddings and family celebrations. Beach access is easy. You can also find any activity on the beach or the kiosk in the lobby. Nice to walk out of the gate and get on a boat to snorkel or travel to Dunn Falls. Easy to get to other beaches, dolphin shows or even Bob Marley's Mausoleum by taxi or bus. While you can prepare your own meals - you can walk to a wide range of places - Burger King/Margaritaville to the Jerk Center. 3 great places within 200 meters. No lack of variety. I would recommend this location to just about anyone - a stay on the beach person or rabid explorers. All of it is here in Jamaica - and this place is a great base.
“Home Sweet Home...”
I recently had the pleasure of spending my holiday in april at this beautifully decorated condo. I must stay from my initial contact with Mr. Wallen and converstations thereafter, to my farewell hug to Miss Pauline, I truly enjoyed my stay! I always stay in condos in this area, but none have been quite like this. The location is great. In walking distance to the beach, supermarket, shops, etc. I am a solo traveller so that's important to me. Eveveyone was friendly and kind as usual. I travel to Ochi often so I've met and have known many great people in the area for years. The condo is furnished nicely. It is equipped with all appliances and dishes. It Even had a blender for me to make fresh fruit smoothies! Miss Pauline takes excellent care of the property! She's a beautiful person. Her spririt is wonderful. I enjoyed chatting with her during my stay. She cooks delicious meals (upon request) and she cleans meticulously! The view is superb from the veranda and bedroom. It's quiet where it's located so you can hear the sounds of the sea. I enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the veranda everyday. Needless to say, I will return soon and often! I've told friends and family about my stay. They look forward to staying here too. The pictures and listings are accurate! The experience tops it all. I thank Mr. Wallen and Miss Pauline for helping enjoy my stay at my second home...Sweet Jamaica! Soon come...Bless
This condo is very nice. It is in a great location, close to everything. There are beach chairs which will save you $10 from renting on the beach. Pauline (housekeeper) met us and helped with groceries the first day. She also cooked a few Jamaican meals that were tasty. The condo is well stocked with good quality linens and pots and dishes were adequate. The condo is kept spotless and is tastefully decorated. The view out your patio doors is wonderful, also cooling breezes off ocean. The grounds are well kept. All in all it was exactly as depicted and we were pleased with our choice.
“It was a safe and enjoyable experience.”
Our stay at this Condo over the past several years was always enjoyable. The unit is fully equipped with a kitchen, cable, air conditioning and a safety deposit box. It was well maintained and the housekeeper was meticulous in keeping it clean. The location is ideal as a vacation spot. The beach and everthing else one may need, eg. market, supermarket, eating outlets, banks are all within walking distance
“Well worth staying, I will be back again and again.”
The resort is located in a prime location downtown near everything. The market and and local vendors are a short walk away and the beach is right outside your window. Lloyd has provides everything you need for your stay in this cozy dwelling of his. It's clean tidy, air conditioned, TV, sterio, VCR, cell phone, books, magazines and movies. A well equipped kitchen and friendly polite maid service provided to even shop for you and cook you local meals if you wish. Margareta Ville is walking distance and the clubbing there was exciting. Learning the local dance steps will give you a better workout than any Zumba class. Our best meal was at a fish market behind Margareta Ville. Fresh catch, excellent price , cooked right in front if us!! Spectacular! The white sandy beach is a 5 minute walk from your hotel, and great for sunbathing and just chilling out. Available at your finger tips is snorkeling, jet ski water sports. If you are not into the beach you can relax at the pool. My wife and I stayed there for a week and we were at the beach everyday hanging out with the friendly locals and people from abroad. What I like most is that we were not locked off from getting to know the local people of the country if we chose to like other vacation spots I have been to.We encourage you to get to know the friendly locals, its safe and lots of security around. I will go back again and again. Great location, great spot, all the amenities I could ask for and very reasonably priced. We had so much fun there that when my daughter mentioned she was going to jamaica. I told her she needed to stay here. She had a blast and brought her young kids with her. Its a totally safe and relaxing environment. A 9 out if 10 in my books
