“Very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our stay was extremely comfortable. The apartment was clean and it was nice that we were greeted with a bottle of rum and chaser, and juice in the fridge. Nice too that there was a television in each room with cable TV. There was also a computer with internet service.
The location of the apartment was also great - just across the road from the Island Village complex and in very close proximity to all amenities such as restaurants, supermarkets and banks. A lovely swimming pool and just a minute's walk to the private beach.
All in all a very nice place to stay and I will definitely use it again.

“Fantastic Time - Turtle Beach Towers - Apt. 43C - Ocho Rios, Jamaica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just returned from a fantastic vacation in Jamaica with my two adult daughters and son-in-law and stayed at the perfect location - Turtle Beach Towers - Apt. 43C! Direct access to the beach is a two minute walk from the apartment. Our overall experience was better than we could ever have anticipated. Interraction with the Owner (Jackie), was effortless and she even called after we checked in to make sure everything was as we expected. Our Housekeeper Annette was wonderful and a fountain of information about all things Jamaican!

The apartment bathrooms and kitchen was updated recently, clean and well kept. The apartment is spacious, well furnished and the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. everything you would need to prepare and eat full meals! Actually we had several meals on the beach that we cooked and carried to the beach!

The location is wonderful - in five days we got in our car twice! Everything is truly within walking distance, everything! What a perfect location! Security on the property and on the beach is very present but also unobtrusive - in five days on the beach, we were only approached once about a glass bottom boat ride - no problems with vendors on the beach whatsoever!

Needless to say, we can't wait to go back and will definitely book this apartment again!

We acknowledged your initial complaint regarding the air conditioning
which was looked into straight away, you later confirmed that it was
working effectively.
As it was your first day we offered you a FULL REFUND so that you
could find a more suitable accommodation for your needs but you refused our offer and
later told us that you were happy to stay in the apartment for the
duration of your stay
We are proud of our apartment and so are several other guests as can
be seen from previous reviews.

“Couldn't have found a better place to stay!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Staying here made my vacation that much better. Jackie was a gem from beginning to end! She exceeded my expectations! I had never booked a vacation rental before but she made it easy! The Apt. was clean and had all the amenities you could need. The apt has been updated and it looks amazing. The location was perfect for everything, eating, partying, beach and shopping. The property was clean and well kept. The housekeeper Annette was great. She felt like family! I stayed with my family and they all loved it. We slept like we were home and with the access to the internet and cable we felt like we were still in touch with home! (only when we wanted to) I can't wait to come back and this will be my home away from home while in Ochie!!
