Our family of four (two daughters 17 and 20) stayed at this villa from 12-25-17 through 1-1-18. The villa is beautiful and very clean. Daily cleaning is included as well as laundry, which is an added bonus. Chef services are available as well for the cost of groceries, which we used every day. The pool and hot tub were terrific and the view of the ocean is wonderful. It was nice to have the ocean access via the stairs built into the cliff. The wifi was a bit spotty for us and the cable/netflix would not work for us, but that was not a big deal, and there were lots of dvds to watch. The house is in a quieter area-this is not a shopping, restaurant or bar district, but we knew that going in and wanted the relaxation. We took a day trip to Negril to hang out on the beach (rented a cabana at Margaritaville) and then went to Rick's Cafe for dinner and cliff jumping which was fun. We also took another day trip to YS Falls and then to Pelican Bar (dive bar in the ocean), which was also very fun. Would recommend both, although be aware that Negril is about an hour away from the house. The owner, George, was great and timely with all communications. He arranged our rental car for us as well as a driver, which was very reasonable and HIGHLY recommended. The house is about 1.5 hours from the airport and my husband was very glad he did not have to drive as the roads are narrow and not in great shape in many spots. Overall we had an excellent vacation.
My sister and I decided to give our mom a post Mother's Day treat and some well needed relaxation so we decided to look to the South Coast for a 5 day family getaway for 6 of us including my two beautiful children.
This unpretentious, stunning property surpassed all our expectations. We arrived very late by own transportation in the night exhausted from our journey and the staff members were eagerly waiting to welcome us; we felt at home right away. They were always very friendly, attentive and willing to please. The service was impeccable. The grounds and gardens are beautifully kept and picture perfect. We've never experienced such calmness. We woke up to the sound of the waves every morning with breakfast overlooking the water and ended our evenings watching the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed dinner outdoors under the stars. The cuisine was delicious. Thanks to the amazing chef!
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing and restful vacation for a family getaway then I would recommend this luxurious four bedroom villa with breathtaking views of the ocean, a large swimming pool with a built-in heated jacuzzi, swim up bar and your own private access to the sea. The rooms are gorgeous, always clean and spacious.
Thanks to the owner and the amazing team at Villa GilGal for making our stay a fabulous, memorable one! Our mom is still raving about your lovely property and we are very pleased that a she enjoyed every moment of her stay. It was truly and unforgettable experience for all of us. We will certainly be coming back very soon.
This place was well worth it!!! I stayed here with 3 of my friends. The owner arranged transportation from the airport which was a huge plus. This allowed us to enjoy and take in the beautiful scenic view. The personal chef made all the traditional meals we asked for. All we did was get the groceries and Mr Lincoln took care of the rest!! The best part was having breakfast under the gazebo and detoxing in the saltwater swimming pool. This is exactly what the doctor ordered. If you need to relax and decompress or just run around naked, I would definitely book this property again.
