This was hands down one of the best resorts I've ever patronized. We intended to stay two nights and ended up staying four. The owners and staff are amazing, just like the property. Snorkeling, great food, morning yoga, a great happy hour and beautiful bungalows made this stay perfect. The knowledgeable drivers on staff made it easy to get around the area. Plus they had good suggestions for day excursions, night life, and restaurants. I would pick this place over any of the mainstream all inclusives on seven mile beach.

When I mentioned trip advisor, I received a free room upgrade.

As a person who travels 48 weeks out of the year, take my advice and stay at The Spa Retreat!

Room Tip: Mention trip advisor and you may receive a free upgrade. I enjoyed staying on the second floor of a bungalow. Great views

Wonderful week at The SPA Retreat. Our rooftop room was lovely and spacious. Cannot say enough about the SPA team from check in (and complimentary neck massage upon arrival) to check out. Attention to our every need was effortless and we enjoyed getting to know many of the wonderful staff. Blue Mahoe Restaurant is very nice (lunch is especially good). You can venture out with the help of onsite taxi drivers and experience small, local establishments. Felt safe and very well taken care of. Having left our dog at home it was expecially nice to have the company of Rosa, resident canine, while lounging at the beach. Massages were heavenly. Enjoyed meeting other guests from around the world. Shared good times at the cliffside bar with guests and Tyrone, Richmond and Dawayne. There are many places to visit around the globe but I hope to return to the SPA Retreat!

Everything you've heard about this place is true and more. We were there for 5 days for our 10th anniversary and could not have asked for a better setting to celebrate this occasion.
There was a misunderstanding during checkin and we were upgraded to a Seaside cottage with amazing views of the pool and ocean.
Swimming around the pool was a delight and was our favorite activity.
The views are simply amazing. Our first morning the ocean was very rough and was great to see the waves crashing against the cliffs. Sadly the weather did not cooperate and we only got to experience one sunset but it was great.
The property is well crafted and maintained and with its setting provides wonderful views and opportunities for great photographs.
The staff are all wonderful including the guys at the bar who are a delight.
We did no excursions but did walk to Town/ seven mile beach one day and to the light house another day. Some great spots to eat and explore along the way.
We ate breakfast and lunch at the local spots near and hotel and had dinner at the hotel. I will say that the Jamaican food was a little bit better at the local joints. Blue Mahoe was very good and loved the shrimp pot and their mango creme brûlée. Coffee was also excellent.
Highly recommended and Would definitely return some time in the future.

We had a good stay at the Spa. The rooms were great with great views. The rooftop rooms have the added advantage of getting to watch the sunset from your own porch. The staff was very friendly and was ready to help us with anything. Great people.
The blue mahoe restaurant had good food the two to three times we had food there. There are a lot of good food options nearby. So jump in one of the route taxis that you get from the front and venture out. Loved the steeply priced moringa smoothie.
The pool was nice with a great view. There is no shade whatsoever in the pool area. The inside of the folded cabanas made them into mini saunas for me with no way for the breeze to get to you. There were not enough umbrellas around either. You get to enjoy the friendly dog Rosa's company for free around the pool.

FYI they do allow teenagers on the property even if it's an adult only resort.

Overall nice experience at the Spa retreat.

Thank you for your review. We are thrilled to learn that you enjoyed the breathtaking ocean views and friendly service offered by our SPA team! We do agree that a breezy spot under one of our umbrellas is an ideal place to be for a relaxing day on our beach deck! While our shaded cabanas offer complete shelter from the sun, wonderful for an early afternoon "siesta", your recommendation for more umbrellas is much appreciated. As an exclusive boutique property, refined young adults are welcome as our guests with the understanding of the tranquil environment we aim to offer. We look forward to your return one day, soon come!

This place truly exceeded our expectations, despite reading every single fantastic review prior to coming. The excellence stems from a combination of the friendliest and most genuine staff you could possibly imagine, a serene setting with great amenities, and fantastic food. This place is incredible, and absolutely deserves to be rated among the best resorts in the Caribbean. We have been to numerous other "higher end" Caribbean destinations such as St John and the B.V.I, but the food and service far surpassed anything we encountered elsewhere. The property itself is flawless. So clean and well kept. I was honestly a bit worried about not having a beach, but as some of the other reviewers have said, you really don't miss it at all. We had the best days just lounging on the deck, swimming in the pool and jumping off the cliffs into the sparkling Caribbean. I wish only the best success to the property owners and especially their fantastic staff. They've got a great thing going and I cannot wait to return!
