I felt straight away from the very first email I received from Mr Oliver that my family/friends and I were going to be looked after at Casa De Shalom; I was not wrong! We were more than happy with the service and attention we received on arrival right through to check out. I cannot thank Mr Oliver, Ms Campbell, Ms June and Mr Davion enough. All are genuinely lovely, friendly and professional people who manage this lovely guest house and their lucky guests.
It's very affordable, and well suited to groups as their have massive family rooms. We were originally supposed to stay for 2 nights but we stayed for 5 nights checking in earlier at short notice. This was no problem and all our last minute change of plans and requests were handled with the utmost courtesy. I never felt I was inconveniencing them.
A big thank you to Ms June who cooked our breakfast every morning; dumplings, ackee and saltfish... mmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it. It all went down a treat!! Set us right up for our days of relaxing on the beach and nights of partying! You can go in and out at all hours - just let them know. (I hope Davion is getting enough sleep these days) :-)
As it’s further away from the town centre and Main Street a car is advisable but don't let that put you off if you’re on foot! It's about 5mins drive from Mahogany Beach, which is private and free (there is a charge for the loungers though), there's a bar and restaurant, the staff there are wonderful too. The beach is lovely and doesn’t get too busy. They play music, which really makes you feel like you're on holiday in the Caribbean!
We stayed in a family room upstairs - really good size and there were 5 of us at one point, but could easily accommodate more. Mr Oliver brought us up a fridge for us to keep food and drinks cold as my 1yr old nephew was with the group. Cleaned for us daily to a good standard; comfortable beds; some pillows are softer than others but Ms Campbell changed those for us when we asked. It really is the little things that make you fall in love with a place.
I would recommend Casa De Shalom to anyone looking for a place to stay in Ocho Rios. They will make you feel at home!
Thank you for making my stay in Ochi a highlight of my holiday in Jamaica. Miss you all.
