Beautiful Beachfront Condominium Rentals Ocho Rios Jamaica
Sandcastle Resort, The property consists of five three-story buildings and has a colonial style design. It is located on Turtle Beach in Ocho Rios and is within walking distance to restaurants, nightlife, church and shopping.
The resort has a to …
This was my second stay at Sandcastles and the first time in this unit. I cannot say enough positive things about this unit. Upon our arrival we were greeted and shown our condo by Pat our housekeeper. She is amazing! Her charm and kindness and treatment during our stay made us feel like we had known her forever. She proudly claimed how much she loved her work and it showed in how well she took care of us and the cleanliness of the condo.
The condo itself was very well equipped with a full sized new fridge and stove and all the small appliances which made our stay feel like home. The bathroom provided more than enough storage and space for 3 women. The shower is amazing and we never ran out of hot water. The king sized bed in the bedroom was very comfortable with high grade linen and great pillows.
By far the best feature of the unit is the balcony overlooking the beach. It is a north facing balcony which meant it was always cool during the day and with the soft breezes from the sea kept the unit cool enough to avoid using the air conditioner. There is constant activity happening with cruise ships and charters. The location to the beach was a short walk down the path. The location is perfect for those that want everything within walking distance. Once you leave the compound everything is within easy walking distance.
Having stayed at Sandcastles 2 years ago I noticed the upgrades and changes to the resort. The security was the biggest change I noticed with an electronic gate and security cameras. Security walked the grounds regularly and we always felt safe.
There is a pub in the main building as well as a pool side bar/grill.
We enjoyed our stay so much we will be booking the same unit for our next vacation in 2015.
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.
I recently had the pleasure of spending my holiday in April at this beautifully decorated condo. I must stay from my initial contact with the Owner and converstations thereafter, to my farewell hug to the Housekeeper, 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! The Housekeeper 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 the Owner and Housekeeper for helping me enjoy my stay at my second home...Sweet Jamaica! Soon come...Bless
This condo is exactly as depicted. There are no nasty surprises.
It is spotless, well stocked and tastefully decorated.
The linens are good quality and plentiful.
Pots, pans and dishes were adequate.
The location is perfect. Easy to get to everything.
The view from the balcony is great. The second floor is the place to be.
The beach chairs supplied were used almost every day and greatly appreciated.
Pauline, the housekeeper met us and helped us with groceries the first day.
She was a help to us throughout our stay, even finding us lemons one day!
She cooked us a few Jamaican meals that were great.
We were pleased with our choice and would gladly recommend this condo.
The condo was in excellent condition and we enjoyed our stay. The property looked exactly like the photos pictured on line and the location was perfect. Everything was in walking distance so a car is not necessary. The condo was very comfortable and cozy.The beach which docks incoming cruise ships some days was beautiful and just a few steps away. Water sports and glass bottom boat rides were available on the beach. The area surrounding the condo has many shops and markets for fresh fruits, veggies, and other items. There are also many restaurants, clubs and fast food places. The staff were great and friendly at all times. The owner was very helpful and pleasant. He called me the day before my arrival to make sure all was well and to answer any questions I had. The owner made the rental process easy. The condo was excellent. However, the pool was closed the entire week of our stay for repairs. I highly recommend this condo to other travelers.
This condo was a excellent choice for my vacation!!! The pictures were a honest representation! The kitchen well stocked with all your modern conveinences!! The living & dining room were comfortable and the bathroom was nicely updated ! The bedroom was a nice size, and very relaxing and the unit was well maintained by Pauline with plenty of fresh towels and clean linen. She is such a joy to talk with !!!. The view from the LR overlooking the beach and ocean were remarkable, as well as the option of just a short walk from the unit to the beach, where you can bask in the sun & listen to the sounds of the waves and reggae music, while enjoying a frozen fruit bar from a local vendor. There are plenty of activities right nearby to enjoy, such as the casino, for gambling or relaxing at the bar and there is also Island Village, where in the daytime you can shop for souvenirs, take in the latest movie at the cinema, eat some ice cream at the ice cream parlor or take in some lunch/dinner at Margaritaville. There are many tourists attractions that can be arranged in the hotel lobby, such as horseback riding and swimming with dolphins. There is also a bar & restraurant at the hotel right off the community swimming pool, and wi-fi in the lobby. Just a short walk away, you can also enjoy food such as Burger King, KFC and local food such as Mothers and Island Grill . There is a little cook shop right outside the hotel lobby that was great for local cuisine, I ate there many times !! Also if you are looking for a little nightlife, you can definetly check out Club Ville ( located at Margaritaville) and Oceans 11 or Baywatch...again all jus a 5 min walk away. I look forward to staying here again sometime in the near future ! Thanks Lloyd, Pauline and Miss Sheila for allowing me to have a "home way from home" experience !!
Awesome property. A home away from home. Very comfortable and relaxing. Minutes away from Mystic Mountain, Dunns River Falls, Margaritaville, Reggae Beach and local shops for keepsakes. Non commericial very cool true Jamaican Experience. Loved it. CANNOT beat the price! Double Thumbs UP! THX Lloyd!
I spent one week (July7-14,2010) in this condo and loved it. The place was spotless and well maintained. It was like being at home because all the usual appliances were available. There was more than enough space for 3 people. I felt very safe and relaxed. I will definitely recommend this property to my friends and family. I will be returning to this property in the future. Pauline the housekeeper was wonderful, friendly and very accommodating.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at apartment D15. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and offering helpful hints. I appreciated the fact that there were no additional fees; the asking price was the final price. I would recommend the property to friends or family.
Now that the city Philadelphia is currently under a foot and a half of snow,I thought this would be a good time to "reflect" on my "warm and wonderful" trip to Ocho Rios. Just in case you do not wish to read my "reflection" below, just know Condo #D15 is TRULY AND EXACTLY AS PICTURED; is well maintained; directly in front of and just a few steps onto the beach and; convenient to everything!!!
REFLECTIONS: It had been a long time since I visited Jamaica and on this occassion, I was traveling alone. So, for me, it was important that I stay in a safe, well maintained condo; with an ocean view; surrounded by VERY courteous and friendly staff; with easy access to all shopping; have no need for a car and; have access to guided tours. In my case, I was even able to hire someone who was more than willing to provide "personally" guided tours to Dunns River Falls, Fern Gardens and Turtle Park (look for "Clinton" on the beach!!) One could easily take a taxi to either of these tourist attractions. But, I am an avid walker, so my guide accommodated my request and we walked,(yes we walked!!), so that I would have an opportunity to see places and things that I probably would not have noticed had I been in a car. He also provided history on the island.
It was a great trip, the accommodations were true to the description and I hope to have an opportunity to use this owners' facilities again in the future.
My holiday in Ocho Rios was the best! The condo was spotless and was decorated beautifully. The pool was nice and the beers were always cold. The condo is in a great location, close to the shops, the beach, and the bars. Pauline really made my trip. She was always ready to go shopping with me, and she made great meals as well. I would most definitely recommend this condo.
This place is beautiful!! I rented this unit in September 2009 and already planning a second trip. The unit is very nicely kept and well decorated. The furnishings and electronics are updated and high quality. The view from the balcony is beautiful and a great way to start the day. The property is well mananged and able to assist you if needed. Housekeeping does a great job keeping the unit clean and linens washed. The location of the property is great- food and stores within walking distance. This place is one of the finest on the property and you won't be dissapointed. I highly recommend this rental.
