“Has great potential but needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Stayed here with a group of friends,The resort has a great vibe, loved the close proximity to the airport and shopping, the staff was great, breakfast was good and the kitchen was well kept, however the rooms could have been cleaner, some of our friends had stains on their bedding and mold in the bathroom, the carpeting in all the rooms was dirty. In my opinion a little overpriced.

If you are seeking a haven from the hustle and bustle of a regular hotel, Mynt Retreat provides a serene haven to relax and enjoy the warmth and comfort of true Jamaican hospitality. You immediately feel at home, from the enthusiastic welcome of Valerie (the proprietor) and her staff, the offer of a cold mint julep upon arrival and the beautifully appointed rooms which are candlelit, and pre-cooled to welcome you. The entire property, from the rooms to the grounds, are all well maintained and in keeping with the Moroccan theme which is the creative vision of Valerie. Her emphasis on providing a calm and relaxing environment, along with great customer service, where her clients every wish is of utmost importance, is a winning combination. I would be remiss, if I did not mention the most amazing breakfasts, which I looked forward to every morning. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac and in close proximity to the airport, Doctor's Cave Beach, the Hip Strip and downtown Montego Bay, makes this property an ideal location for both vacation and business travelers. So if you desire the comforts of a home away from home, Mynt Retreat should be your destination, in Montego Bay.

My family and I stayed at Mynt during the Christmas period, what a wonderful, friendly, beautiful gem so close to everywhere in Mobay! Valerie, Ryan and the wonderful staff at Mynt catered to our every request! We were spoilt by the wonderful cooked Jamaican breakfast every morning. They went above and beyond even noticing that my 13 year old was not enjoying the breakfast and offering to make her an omlett or french toast instead. The rooms are well laid out, clean and towels changed when we needed them. They even turned down our beds at night! The main gem here is Valerie and her staff who bends backwards to accommodate your every wish! Will definitely be going back when we visit Jamaica!

We stayed at Mynt over New Years and weren't too excited especially after how highly rated this was. The room we got was on the bottom floor and it was called Casablanca - the room itself was okay; the carpet was dirty and the bed wasn't the best. They also didn't clean the rooms between the days we stayed and even though we didn't ask, I would think a room service is standard. Outside of that, the staff was very nice to work with and the food was good as well.

The Mynt Retreat is at the top of the hill 5 minutes from the airport. The view is wonderful! Valerie and her staff are both welcoming and professional. We were greeted with a delicious minty drink upon arrival. Our rooms were clean and spacious. They had immediate access to the patio. A delicious breakfast was served on the patio each morning. Be aware that you can hear the truck traffic on the road below. We were told to close the bathroom door and that made a huge difference. Despite the initial traffic noise, it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite one.

I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It feels like you are in your home, only you get breakfast in bed. The rooms are very nice, we stayed in Safi which was upstairs and had direct access to the patio. The bed was very comfortable and there was a lot of interesting reading material. Most importantly the place is very clean. The very pleasant staff provides a welcome drink, and there is water and coffee in your room. The living room upstairs and downstairs provides places to entertain or relax outside of your room. Valerie takes the time to make you feel very comfortable and have your needs met.. She knows the ingredients for a successful bed and breakfast. She is in the process of having a pool installed and I do believe that when this is done it will be one of the best boutique hotels around.

We had a lovely stay at the Mynt Retreat for 2 nights before going on to meet family at a villa. The location is just 5 minutes away from the airport where a driver from the hotel was there to meet us, which is extremely welcome after a long flight from Europe. Valerie was very welcoming and all the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and they were not put out at all when my son wet the bed! The rooms and hotel are also beautifully decorated. My only criticism would be that as yet there is no pool and the beach is a taxi ride away (about 5 minutes) but Valerie is working on this and I believe that within the next year there will be a pool put in which would make this hotel truly wonderful!
