“Heavenly beach, perfect service”

This fully staffed home is a little slice of heaven in the land of Bob Marley. The home is kept in perfect shape, clean and lovely. The home rests on a lovely white sand beach and has kayaks, tennis courts, ping pong - everything to entertain every member of your family. The pool and hot tub are kept perfectly clean and are prettier in person than the photos show. All the activities of Ocho Rios are less than 5 minutes away (Dunns River Falls, Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove). You can skip the cruise ship crowds and visit all these attractions after 3 pm since they are so close by. The crashing waves permeate every area of this house wherever you are, so you will sleep like a baby. Although the beach is fabulous and the house is lovely, this is the most well trained and friendly staff I have every encountered on any vacation. To say they run a tight ship is an understatement; they run a perfect ship. The food is delicious and perfectly prepared (have Alton make the homemade rum cake or coconut cream pie - both to die for). The children cried for hours leaving this place because the staff
treated them like family. If you don't have a heavenly time at this place, please get professional help! The staff will make it impossible for you to have anything but a sublime and perfect stay. I will always remember my trip to Malatai and wish I was there right now! If you are considering a villa stay in Jamaica, you have to try Malatai!!
