I have stayed at this condo 4 times and I simply love it! I visit Jamaica often and this place is a gem. Pictures really don't do this condo justice...simply beautiful. Howard is always very attentive to my needs. I contacted Howard after my first stay suggesting a full length mirror be placed in the upstairs bedroom. One week later Howard contacted me stating the mirror was installed and thanks for my suggestion...amazing. The great thing about this condo is it is very modern with upgraded everything. The condo is listed a 1 bedroom but is roomy with an added upstairs loft area with 2 beds! This makes it great for a family or friends looking for space. LOCATION!!!! The condo is located right on the strip and you can walk to everything. The beach is steps away and if you just want to hang out at the condo there is a great pool and bar on the premises. BOTTOM LINE...You will not be disappointed rather very IMPRESSED!
“Modern and clean apartment”
I'll start with the pros: Apartment is clean, modern and nicely furnished. Same distance to beach and pool - very short stroll. Well-maintained grounds. Friendly staff. Cons: Bed and pillows were hard. Balcony barely big enough for 1 person to sit. $5 per lounge chair per day was expensive for 3 people over 6 days. Water was rough, bumpy when entering and lots of seaweed - perhaps a seasonal thing. Huge cruise ships stopping there every day and tons of ship people on the beach. Many restaurants do not take credit cards. Locals in the street and near the beach are quite aggressive... I've been to other areas of Jamaica and have never seen this pushiness before. Restaurant at resort has no menu, no prices and is very slow. You find out how much dinner costs when you're done. My husband and I were not comfortable with this as we do not like to carry large amounts of cash when travelling - and they you're worried if you can order an extra drink or not... I can see how some people would love this location, but I guess it's just not for me or my family. I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends only because everyone I know prefers all-inclusive trips.
Response from the owner Thanks for your overall 4 star rating, we loved having you stay with us! Our comments about the negatives: we have had excellent feedback from other guests about our King sized pillow top bed that is fitted with a cotton padded mattress cover as well!. The unusual heavy rainfall prior to your stay affected the water at the beach but normally it is calm and the property will be clearing the weeds over growth caused by the heavy rains. The expanse of the beach is long enough that guests who want to avoid any cruise ships passengers can move further along the stretch to quieter spots. The restaurant and pool bar which were recently reopened will be improving their act! All major restaurants in the town accept credit cards of course with the exception of little craft shops and fishing village operated by local fishermen on the beach. We provide in the room a listing of numerous eating options that accept credit cards. All inclusive hotels cannot be compared to a self catering apartment as the latter is for folks who want to experience a variety of local offerings and have the option to cook their own freshly bought fish and vegetables and not just meals provided for them and 300 other guests.
“One of the best apartments i have used on airbnb”
I have a few regular places i like to stay when we visit Ochi, and now i have one more! Our stay at Howard's was great from start to finish. Communication was on point, Howard always responded within a few hours and made sure we had all the info we needed before we arrived. Check-in/out was quick and simple. The apartment has been well looked after, it's very clean and fresh with good decor and it looked like it had just been freshly decorated and furnished. The bathroom suite and shower were really nice, plenty of towels, soap's etc. There was a lovely little kitchen, well stocked and perfect if you like to prepare your own meals. Again, the kitchen was spotlessly clean. The bedroom had plenty of storage for clothes and toiletries, and the bed was super comfy. The living area had a small balcony where we enjoyed breakfast every morning. There was plenty of natural light, a small dining area, cable TV, a/c. All in all everything one could need to ensure maximum comfort. There was also a second bedroom just above the living area that we didn't need to use being as there was just two of us staying. But that was also very nice! The location is perfect, close to all amenities, local shops, transport, market area, cinema, restaurants, bars and attractions. The beach is just downstairs and the swimming pool and grounds are beautiful and well kept. My husband and i were just visiting for a few days and know the area well, so we didn't need any guidance or local information. However, it was offered. Also, i have to add that the house keeper Lulu is, i am sure, a wealth of advice on what's hot and what's not on all the wonderful things to do whilst you are in Ocho Rios. Obviously we would recommend and we look forward to our next stay at Howard's.
“Excellent value for money!”
Hi, We spent 6 nights in this beautiful condo. Everything was perfect: Howard and Lulu did a great job in answering quickly all the questions we had, the condo was very clean, very functional, well equipped, very closed to the beach, local shops and main attractions. It is in a quiet and safe building and all the people we met have been very friendly. An excellent value for money! We only missed a bigger balcony and the view on the sea! But the price would have been much higher then!
Response from the owner Hello Cecile, Thank you for the wonderful review and appreciate your kind words, i knew you would enjoy your stay with us and hopefully we can accommodate you and the family again in the near future, take care. Howard
