"Best apartment in Sandcastles"

This is my 2nd time staying in this apartment, 2012 was the first and i had to come back and stay.
Everything still works perfect, wifi, cooker, tv's, shower etc i was happy. As always it was easy to book the apartment and the owner is approachable.
Its clean, in the most central part of Ocho Rios and its secure. I stayed there on my own and felt safe. The lady who cleans the room is lovely, a warm personality and is helpful.
When im next in town will book this same apartment as the others just cant compete!

"Deteriorating thru the years.."

Needs Major overhaul! Not a luxurious resort, falsely advertised. The stupidist security system!. At front gate entrance 2 people sit / watch computer screens for the back entrance activity.This entr/… More

Sorry to hear that you had a problem with security. I was not aware of this however, will speak to the strata management about your comments. As for the repairs on all the apartments please note that these are individually owned, and the responsibility is the owners. We are sorry once again that you wasn't happy but you never made any comments about the apartment and you were there for a long time. When the clients are not happy we always offer another condo or their money back. I Don't understand why you didn't voice this earlier to the housekeeper. We will take on board your comments, and at times we are never going to please everyone, however we will talk to the securiy about this matter.

"Nice, Cozy, Clean."

This apartment is centrally located in Ocho Rios, close to bars, restaurants, sights, etc. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, modern, I had no complaints. The TV in the bedroom was missing but … More

Thank you for your comment, and we are sorry that the tv wasn't in the bedroom when you arrived our lovely Jamaicans are not so quick at time keeping they had promised to have it fixed in a day and took five. No I wasn't happy! However I am sure that your holiday was still beautiful. As well as the apartment being to your satisfaction.

"Comfortable, cosy, modern apartment in the right area!"

This apartment by far is the best apartment i have stayed in at Sandcastles and i have stayed in more than 8! The owner Jennifer is prompt and friendly when replying to all queries, i felt at ease booking with her. Her driver Dennis who picked me and my son up from the airport was ontime and he wore a Palmview tshirt so i was able to recognise him straight away at Montego Bay busy airport.
This apartment is clean and very comfortable, most apartments ive stayed in just about has enough cups, this one has pots,pans, jugs more than enough cutlery, a toast sandwich maker and lots more in the kitchen. The computer has fast internet connection which helped, and a tv in the living room and bedroom which is a bonus as most apartments provide just 1 tv in the main room. There is also a powerful ipod/iphone speaker so i was able to play my music on my iphone while getting ready to go out! Along with a seperate cd stereo player. A spacious, clean balcony with table and 2 chairs.
The shower unit is powerful with hot water and i like the fact that it has sliding doors instead of a shower curtain, the floor stayed dry. A strong hair dryer and hair straighteners are also in the apartment (came in handy plus it saved me bringing mines in my luggage).
English sockets for if you dont have an adapter and also cable in both rooms. Also the owner has provided magazines and childrens books for the rainy days in (along with the computer and alot of cable channels available you cant be bored).
Stephanie who is the helper, she cleaned the apartment everyday and was thorough was always available by phone if i had a query and lives locally.

Although i had a car , Sandcastles is located in a spot where everything is walking distance from eating out to going to the supermarkets and walking to the the clubs and beach.
Also opposite is Turtle Park, a park you can go and chill and watch the turtles and large fishes swim by.
The car park in Sandcastles is big and security are onsite 24/7

Im planning my next trip end of this year and i will definately contact Jennifer again. Lovely apartment in a beautiful country. Thank you Jennifer, Dennis and Stephanie!

Thank you very much for your comment, hope to see you soon.

"Cozy plush appartment."

The hotel was vey well known . We were taken care of on arrival. Found it very useful that a mobile phone was given with the appartment during our stay. The staff would say good morning without fail.The appartment is really close to the beach with all shops and bars very near. we walked everywhere.
Use of a private car park and very safe. The hotel was not busy and the bar was closed but i dont drink so it didnt bother me, but if u do the liquer is cheap in the supermarket across the road.
This place is great if u want some peace and quite instead of a loud and busy hotel.
This one bed appartment had wifi,tv,great music player,nice veiws.smoking area,ac hot water and very cozy. The owner was always at the end of the phone if we needed anything. The appartment also came a cleaner which was great for those lazy days. i am So happy we had such a honest owner. I forgot my Iphone 4s in the appartment and Jennifer found it and returned it back to me in the uk.So lost nothin and gained a great stay in Jamaica. Jeni gave us a good price so it was cheaper then a hotel.Coming back and staying here @ JENI'S APPARTMENT in SANDCASTLES.

Thank you for your comments about Apartments based in Sandcastles and Colombus Heights. We hope to see you again soon. In the meantime we were happy that you received your iphone that you left in the apartment. I was becoming worried about the postal service in Jamaica being slow. Thumbs up that you now have your phone. As we say in Jamaica "One Love One Heart". (Glad you arrived back safe in the UK lets hope the raining weather clears up in London!)

"Best Apartment"

I have stayed 10 days at the sandcastle hotel in the private apartment D12, this was the most marvelous experience that I have endured. I was able to see the beach from sitting on the balcony, feel th… More

Thank you very much for your review of the apartment we knew you liked it, however didn't realise you like it that much! The staff here were shocked and some tearful when I showed them the review today. There has been so many negative reviews about some of the apartments in sandcastles resort in the past. Once clients now realise that apartments are privately rented like the one you stayed in they will now be able to book in confidence. Once again thank you, we hope to see you soon.
