Pattoo castle is definitely the place to stay with a group (of friends) if you are in Jamaica. The castle is really big and easily sleeps 14 - 15 people. The bedrooms are big and well equipped. The view is absolutely stunning and the location is perfect. You can take a dive into the sea from the terrain of the castle, or you can relax in the pool while enjoying the view of the very blue sea. The staff is really friendly and always willing to help (for example, they arranged a grill for us, so we good grill our food). Please be advised that if you want to arrange something in- or outside the castle it is wise to do that with the help of the staff, the staff has good and reliable contacts.
First off, thank you Gary for your attention and hospitality. Everything was first class! This is a review as well as a letter of appreciation.
An amazing, memorable and fun experience is guaranteed to anyone who chooses to stay at Pattoo Castle.
The views are priceless the accomodations are versatile and rival what one would expect at a luxury property. The West end location in the cliffs is story book and it is only minutes from popular 7 mile beach.
We had many experiences from snorkeling in the turquoise seas, exploring the nearby reefs and caves as well as indulging in some of the local, authentic cuisine. Every experience was memorable.
Including, I proposed to my lovely better half while at the castle. If I did it all over again, it would still be at Pattoo Castle with the breathtaking view in the back drop.
Thank you for allowing us to make life long memories at your home!
Before closing this review, I want to thank your entire crew.
Lionel is an asset to your team an obviously is evident in the tenure he has provided. Prompt and helpful he is and we enjoyed his company.
We will remain in contact.
Pass along our thanks to Keino for his insightful tips and to Patrick and Graham for their assistance and security whether it was opinion or technical. Such as where to explore around town and with routing music via bluetooth to the house speaker.
Once again, thank you for all of the graciousness and we truly hope to return again in the approaching future!
I cannot say enough positive things about my stay at Pattoo Castle, I have stayed in local resorts before (because I love Jamaica) but this was definately my favourite! The castle has been decorated to the highest of standards, the beds, linens are immaculate. The amenities like the Salt water pool are breathtaking. Only steps away from the Caribbean sea this place is a true gem to be found. The owner Gary is very respectful and accommodating, and Lightning the fisherman will catch you some fresh fish! I loved staying here, the standards, views, peace and privacy is unique and extraordinary. Very close to everything, near to the beautiful beaches, lo cal restaurants and bars. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
There are a few places that I just hate to share .. but I feel compelled to "big up" Pattoo Castle as it is truly unique in every sense, and it is only fair that others can enjoy it too!
Situated on the Negril cliffs, this castle boasts not only spacious clean rooms (every one different, so its difficult to choose which to luxuriate in, but the most comfortable beds, pillows and linens that I have slept in and on in many a year.
A dramatic infinity pool where one can lazily watch the "water world" go by, was a big spoiling day and way into the night .. long after sunsets disappeared. The snorkeling is also pretty good right off the cliff, and you can arrange with "Lightening" to take you.
We opted to go out for meals as wanted to explore the nearby culinary scene, such as "Pressers One Love" right across the road, (Rasta sightings there are common and friendly local), "Pushcart" at Rockhouse, "Sip n Bite", "Kenny's Italian" etc .. so did not experience the castle cook this time round .. thats for the next trip, when I will also indulge in "at home" massages, tasty meals .. and most likely not leave the property at all!
