“It's my Paradise Found, my Wonderland!!”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in January 2014
person found this review helpful

February 2006 was my first trip to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, staying at Sandcastles Penthouse Apt. A28 (Paradise Found). I've been back 13 times to the same apartment and have made plans to visit again in 2015 or sooner.

The apartment is spacious, clean, close to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and all tourist attractions. No car is needed, everything is within walking distance, including a casino!!

Over the years the apartment has been updated with new furnishings as needed. It sleeps 5 people comfortably & the master bedroom is on the 2nd floor adjacent to the rooftop patio. It's light and airy with a constant breeze coming through the windows. Each room has a slim line air conditioner along with a ceiling fan. The beds are very comfortable and new bedding is attractive.

From the living room and bedrooms you have garden, sea & pool views! From the rooftop patio you have magnificent views of the mountains and also the sea & it's amazing to watch the Cruise Ships docking.

Sandcastles has a pool, and with just a short walk on the foot path you can play on the public beach that boast soft sand and clean water. You can book water sports right from the beach too!

My favorite & one of the best things about staying here is the rooftop patio with the OUTSIDE shower. You have not lived until you have showered with the moon & the stars above!

These pictures do not show all the updates recently made! I've been told by the owner that new pictures will be posted A.S.A.P. so please check back, you will be even more amazed!!!

Have fun, ENJOY & get happy!

“We're coming back soon! No problem;)”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in this condo over April break and had an amazing time. The atmosphere is so relaxing. Our favorite part by far is the private patio where we did our fair share of sunbathing, looking out onto the Caribbean and stargazing at night. The outdoor shower is very refreshing and a surprising novelty! What's good about staying here is you can walk to the beach, the restaurants, shopping, casino etc. the beach is clean, the water is crystal clear, and the sand is soft. We did our own food shopping and cleaning. The local markets have everything you need. It's a genuine Jamaican experience. As far as excursions, they have pretty much everything and it's a cab ride away. Don't leave without having some jerk chicken! Some restaurants also serve delicious carribean lobster Ye mon!
