I decided to rent the Serenity at Sandcastles so that I could be in the heart of Ocho Rios. That was just the experience I got. Sandcastles is in the middle of everything. It is a short walk to Margaritaville, shops, grocery, and even the casino. Serenity was clean and came fully stocked with just about everything you would need. The best part is the beach is just at the back door. Ms. Theresa was great and accommodating. I am planning to return to Jamaica soon and would love to stay at Serenity at Sandcastles again.
I had one of the most amazing times in Jamaica. We were welcomed by Miss Theresa and had complimentary gifts of Jamaican rum, snacks and bottled water, which was a great start to our vacation and added to the whole experience. The apartment was clean, very modern and homely, with all of the amenities we needed. We also felt safe as its in a gated community. This also meant my Jamaican family and guests were able to day visit with me and they had no problems parking on site. We were able to cook, laugh and relax together. The balcony sea view was lovely and we had breakfast there every morning. Travelling around the island was easy as the knutsford express coach station was a 5 minutes walk up the road opposite the Taj Mahal duty free shops. From here We were able to go to Kingston and Montego Bay in air conditioned comfort. The coach service was professional, punctual and comfortable, with on board TV and toilet. The scenic views of the island were amazing. Being at Sandcastles meant we were surrounded by numerous shops, restaurants and supermarkets for all our needs. I loved "Island Grill" which is a great Jamaican fast food restaurant. We will definitely be returning to this appartment as we still have so much to discover in Ocho Rios Jamaica. Thanks Suzanne for making us welcome and providing local information.
