“Trinity Villa – couldn’t have asked for a better vacation”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

From the moment you are greeted at the door and take in the exquisite property & furnishings, to the delicious foods that Chef Harry creates, to the (many) cool cocktails Alwayne makes, to the TWO pools, to the wonderfully accommodating staff… Trinity Villa made for the most unforgettable, luxurious, ‘don’t lift a finger’ kind of vacation. We are looking forward to sharing many more years at Trinity… can’t imagine going anywhere else!

Our trip to Tryall Club and Villa Lolita was an experience right out of "Travel and Leisure" magazine or "Life of the Rich and Famous". We spent a week with a group of 10 adult friends. The overall club facilities were lovely and well managed. The staff was charming and very detail oriented. Villa Lolita was a magnificently appointed home sitting atop a mountain, with views of the ocean . We saw pictures of the property but it was beyond our expectations. Beautifully appointed, extremely private bedrooms, each with unique details such as hot tub, private waterfall, or private garden. We spent much of our time in the infinity pool enjoying the views and beautiful weather. The staff was incredible, quietly meeting all of our needs without interfering with our activities. The chef prepared our food according to our food preferences so each meal was a healthy, gourmet experience with unique table decor for each and every sitting. The house and landscape was meticulously cared for and any requests we had, were met with a warm smile from the staff.

Room Tip: There are no bad bedrooms. Each room has its own air conditioning, room darkening blinds, private ba...

The Tryall sprawls outward from the main registration buildings to massive villas plopped into terraces overlooking the excellent golf course and ocean. It is spectacular in it's scope, and the staff is top notch across the board.

The good:
The villas are very functional - we had 6 fully furnished bedrooms each sleeping 2 in separate beds, with a large pool area, and a great room for indoor activities during the brief rain interludes. Ours came with a cook. We only had breakfast and dinner, which we coordinated with the staff (they did the shopping).

The golf course lives up to its reputation (best in the Caribbean). Caddies are great, it's beautiful, and challenging.

The beach has great staff, and as an added bonus the water sports desk has 12 lacrosse sticks at your disposal. 14' Hobies are available, as are kayaks, etc.

The bad:
We were all adults, so we could handle the sprawl. But you need to take a golf cart to get anywhere. The common facilities are beautiful, but in early May no one was using any of them.

The beach is OK. The water is great, but it gets rocky/urchiny once you're in the water. The contant breeze kicked up a lot of sediment, so the snorkeling deteriorated throughout the day. We snorkeled at 8am, and visibility/waves were not conducive to any kind of peak experience.

We were captive to the on-site restaurants for lunch - $250 for 5 guys, which included ~2-3 drinks each. As for the breakfasts and dinner options in our villa - very plain! Perhaps that was our fault in terms of our instructions. Just sayin'

Also - there was construction next door to our villa featuring a jack hammer every day after 9am. Apparently April 15th marks the beginning of construction season until November(?).

Conclusion - if you're looking for a private villa to share with your entourage, the Tryall is great. If you are dedicated to golf, the Tryall is great. However, families, or smaller groups desiring an on-premise pulse might do well elsewhere.

What a trip! The Tryall Club provided everything a family could want in a vacation. Beautiful accommodations, outstanding service, great food and high quality entertainment along with some of the most amazing oceanfront views you've ever seen. I was so thrilled with the friendly and accommodating staff, who were always there for us.

The activities for kids and grown-ups alike are limitless. Tennis, golf, croquet, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, nature hikes and opportunities for rest and relaxation at every turn. Our girls (5 and 11) couldn't stop raving about the daily kids club activities. Their smiles told the whole story! Most of our time was spent at the beach or in the pool and we wouldn't want it any other way. We're already planning our next visit!

If you are looking for a pool scene and active night life, look elsewhere.

If you want to float on a raft in your own private pool, sit on a near empty beach or eat lunch in your own "restaurant" - this is your place.

The villas are beautiful surrounded by flowers and fruit trees that create a very private experience, but it is the peace and quiet that won me over. We moved at our own pace. The private chef was brilliant and served exceptional meals.

We stayed in the Faith Walk villa down near the beach (but not on the beach) and really liked the closeness to the ocean (easy walk) vs staying in one of the villas on the hill, but that is personal preference as the hill villas have great views.

It was fun to have your own golf cart to zip around the beautiful resort.

I can't say enough nice things about the staff at this resort as they made our stay comfortable and relaxing.

The only things that I would do different next time (and I hope it will be soon), is that I would have brought shampoo from home (not in the room), maybe brought some of the basic food items from home (have to buy in the resort store things) and decided what we want to eat for meals in advance (the chef was very flexible, but we needed to decide what we wanted to eat every day vs having a menu, and once we got the hang of planning meals vs usually just winging it, it went very well).

This was one of the most relaxing vacations I've had and will be back.

I have traveled around the world but have never been to a resort as good as this!!! It was a great family vacation. My 2 brothers and parents came with me. We stayed at Faithwalk " Little Palm".
We had a staff of a maid,cook,gardner and laundry person. The room was so clean! The food was the best I ever had!! It was things like chicken nuggets, curried chicken,eggs, French toast etc. Also the pool was amazing. The garden was also very pretty. We had 2 golf carts. 1 for the staff and one for the guests. We also had a great nanny. The staff was very helpful. I suggest you go there today!

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach are great.

Two families rented Bumpers Nest for a week. Amazing house, fantastic and caring staff and very impressed by Tryall overall. Didn't feel the need to even leave the compound.

Our kids loved the tennis (again, great people as ball boys/instructors), pool and beach. Loved the Jamaican hospitality and would definitely return to Tryall. Thank you.
