This review is long over due!!! There wasn't a place to post last year about Sea Rose. I love this area of Jamaica because it is quiet, relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle of Ocho Rios. My friend and I went there last year on Girls spring break trip. We were on a very tight budget, we went for six nights. After much research we booked the Sea Rose villa. From the moment we arrived at the airport our driver Hugo was there waiting there to greet us.
The house was gigantic and became our home away from home. The staff were so warm and welcoming during our stay and the food they prepared daily was so delicious. I wait so anxiously for Ackee and Saltfish, it is my favorite Jamaican dish. Adessa and Michelle were wonderful and sweet and helpful with everything we needed during our stay. They even helped us pick some aloe for my sunburn when I missed some spots with my sunblock lol!
Dave the security guard kept us safe at night (although I feel quite safe in Jamaica and I've never had any issues there on any of my visits! We hooked Dave on Netflix so much so we sent him a kindle when we returned home so he could continue his binge watching.
Hugo our driver took us to the beach daily and we even walked a few times, we felt quite safe doing so. We also had Hugo take us to Negril for a day trip and also to a local zip lining tour. He was also very prompt and helpful.
If you want a real Jamaican experience and authentic Jamaican food and you want to meet some warm and wonderful people stay at Sea Rose. This is a laid back relaxing place, leave your five star resort expectations at home.
A couple of tips.... Go horseback riding with Robert the horseman he and his staff are wonderful and it's such a great experience! Go to H'evans Scent zip line, it's unlike any other zipline I've done and it so beautiful.
The local beach is gorgeous and the public beach has a great place to grab lunch, Flavours.
Enjoy the experience and the people! Truly one of the most relaxing trips I've ever been on and I hope to soon come back :).
There are no words to express this home. You felt as though you were in a 5 star villa but feeling as though you were a natural local. I enjoyed some of the ackee in the yard, wish the Mango was in season. Very clean inside and out. Dave was the young man to take care of the grounds and assist us and he was awesome. The pictures on the website does not do this rental justice. All I can say was it was flawless. I plan on revisiting very soon, by July!!!!!
