We've visited Goldeneye many times and will continue to go. The people are amazing, friendly and make us feel at home each visit. Food is great, as are the drinks! It's really a beautiful place. Unbelievable place to wind down. Our driver, Laurel Blair, is simply the best. She is friendly, funny, accommodating and SAFE! Be sure to request Laurel!!!!

If you're looking for seclusion and relaxation, this place is for you. Even at capacity, it feels uncrowded. The accommodations are top-notch waterfront rooms that would cost far more elsewhere, and the service is pretty much perfect. A couple downsides: the food can be incongruously pricy. Dinner one night was tagged at $80/person. For a couple, that lands at nearly half the cost of one of their jaw dropping beach hut rooms. There's not much to do or see in Oracabessa, and transportation to other parts of the island is very expensive, so you'll likely end up spending most of your time at the hotel (not an issue, but if you're into day trips, you may want to look elsewhere).

Dear Bicktrav: Thank you very much for your recent review of GoldenEye! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the property so much! The beach Huts are lovely and getting more and more popular. It is great that you noted about how expansive the property is, in that you will never feel as if it is "crowded" at GoldenEye. As for things to do nearby, there are usually more Tour offerings but due to the current pandemic protocols, some are not open at this time. The more popular Tour Excursions are open however, in Ocho Rios, Port Antonio etc and can be arranged. We also have alot to do within the property which keeps guests busy - including Watersports Paddle-boards, kayaks, snorkeling tours in the fish sanctuary, boat trips that can be arranged, yoga and sound bowl meditation...tennis, fitness classes, and the FieldSpa. We hope you will visit us again soon! One Love, Jeanine Tribley PR Manager

My husband and I decided to get married in Jamaica, resort hop, and get married at Goldeneye! The service, the food, the atmosphere, the pools, the ocean, the snorkeling, etc. is ONE OF A KIND! We had an absolute joy, and Fiona is fantastic to work with. We stayed on the lagoon side, and our families stay in the beach huts. Everyone loved their rooms. We can’t say enough great things about it — you felt like you were taken care of from the minute you get there to the minute you leave — be sure to research the history of Goldeneye, and look through the pictures. It’s relaxing and cozy and true Jamaican culture. We plan to make it an every year vacation spot! It’s a must!

Dear Hannah, Thank you so much for such a lovely review of your recent stay at GoldenEye! We are very happy to hear that everything went so well and congrats on your marriage. Fiona is passionate about what she does, and it certainly shows! All our accommodations at GoldenEye have something special about them, whether it is a beach hut (aka "hut life" & "barefoot luxury") or the magic of the lagoon cottages located right on the tranquil lagoon....and of course our Beach Villas. It sounds like you really let the vibe and ambiance of GoldenEye envelop you.... We hope you will be back year after year. One Love, Jeanine Tribley PR Manager

My friends and I (2 couples) stayed at Goldeneye Resort for 6 days. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and great hospitality we received from Fabian, Nardia, and Romaine. They went the extra mile to ensure we had a great time! I will say, a few of the restaurants and activities were not available due to covid. It would have been nice to have this published on the website prior to our arrival. Besides this, our stay was fantastic!

Dear jomelm: Thank you so much for your review on your recent stay at GoldenEye! We will certainly pass on the kudos about our team. We are sorry that not all our facilities were available while you were here - during the pandemic we made it clear at booking - via a waiver form that 'some' of our usual day to day facilities/activities were scaled down. We did on that note, add many other lovely activities like Meditation, sound bowl meditation & Yoga, drummers, movies at Playscape, as well as a few weekly pop up Dinners catered by lovely Chef's (like "Stush in the Bush") as well as asian and Mediterranean cuisine. We do hope you will come and visit us again soon. One Love, Jeanine Tribley PR Manager
