“Perfect Location & Beautiful Property”

I stayed at the room 136 and rented from Betty and Christopher! The room was great, the location was perfect, and the rock pool and ocean view made it even better! I had a hard time contacting Betty at first, but just be patient, she always calls or E-mails back. I would def stay again!! They gave us everything we needed, and never had to worry about anything.

My wife and I had a beautiful vacation at studio 136 at Point Village.
Complete relaxation and a wonderful experience with the privacy and loveliness of the property.
Swimming every day,or lounging on the private beaches and rock pool.
Everything is steps away, and one doesn't have to deal with the noise and hustlers on the main Nergril beach.
Betty and Chris,were terrific, Chris drove my wife and i to town for shopping,and was very good with recommending good restaurants close by.
The room was clean and bright with a beautiful gaden view and a partial view of the sea.
Wi-Fi, T.V. ,and kitchen appliances all woked very well, no issues and or concerns.
This was our 4th trip to Jamaica and 2nd vacation at the point.
My wife and i have booked again and will be returning in March 2017.
Thank you Betty and Christopher for a great experience and Vacation.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed several days in studio 205 in Point Village. Delicious: a flat appointed with elegance, every detail with care, a white sofa and a beautiful terrace, a very intimate occasion also to eat by candle light! Outside and from the nice terrace small boats passing by: just in front of the studio Booby Cay, a little cay known like "boobies" because of the marine birds nest there.
The view is also: tropical fruit trees, gardens, cormorants and, sometimes, the lovely song of the whistle frog! Relaxing and quiet beaches in Point Village and at one side: the insuperable Seven Miles Beach, at the other: the wonderful placidity of Bloody Bay!
You really feel yourself at home also if You come from afar! Thank You very much Betty and Christopher for Your kindness, we hope to come back very soon to Point Village!

I once again went to stay at Beach Front Studio at Point Village in Negril and it was just as fabulous the second time around . Waking up in that wonderful 4 poster bed with that breath taking view is heavenly. Chris and Betty were as hospitable as ever and I throughly enjoyed my stay. The apartment has all the amenities one could need flat screen tv, wifi , fridge,stove and a/c.

I would just like to say that the Coconut Studio @ Point Village is AMAZING !!!! My wifey and i have been going to Negril Jamaica for over 20 Years and we have stayed in this studio for 6-8 yrs in a row,I would consider staying no where else. Betty Cortina and Chris have made us feel so comfortable, we feel like family. Also, they have been constantly updating this property, with several new additions every year. Our vacation is in February and i cant wait to see whats new. We feel as if we are coming home . It has become our favorite vacation place on the planet.,BIG UP TO BETTY& CORTINA & CHRIS ... THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT MEMORIES!!!! .

“This is a Great Place - If it is What You are Looking For!”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

My wife and I just returned from a 14 night stay in the studio apartment at Point Village, Negril.
We had a wonderful time, but it might not be the place for everyone. I will try and give you information so that you can make a decision if this would be a good fit for you. If you go with the right attitude, I think you will have a wonderful visit.

The closest description I have for our experience was it was a bit like staying at resort cabins that we have stayed at in our lake areas in Canada and northern United States. A little rugged/rustic, but we enjoy those places and therefore enjoyed Apt 205 in Point Village as well!

The room was as pictured. The bed was very comfortable. The 4 poster bed was large and after a day in the sun put us to sleep with ease. The best part of the room was the patio area. When we weren't sleeping we spent almost all of our time on the patio. The view over the water and island was great. I think it will be hard to find an oceanfront room at this price. There were very few bugs, despite the rain so we were able to enjoy early mornings and late evenings out there. The bathroom was very good. The shower worked well, plenty of hot water and the water quality was outstanding. Drinking tap water is not an issue.
The kitchen was small. Only one person at a time. Cooking is a challenge as there was only a hotplate. But that was no issue for us. We used it to fry some eggs and it was fine for that. Betty did warn us when we booked that the fridge is small,and the freezer smaller. But we stopped in Mobay for groceries on the way out and Chris took us to the Hi-Lo two other times. So were managed just fine.
There is a large couch that we never really used. The television has a wide range of channels (over 400) so you can keep up with news from home, or find a movie/show to watch. We didn't use the TV very much, but it might be important for some people.
The wireless internet worked very well. In fact it was faster than the service we have at home.
The major problems with the room were:
the sheets have some holes and stains, the closet door was sticking on the floor, the patio fan is noisy, there are ants in the kitchen and we had a small salamandra(?) in the room.
As I said, these did not bother us, but if they will bother you, then you should explore other options.
The room was clean - not spotless... but perfectly fine for us.
We were given a phone to use for local calls. The room also has information on the local area. Of course having access to the internet means access to tripadvisor and host of information.
The room has an operating safe that allows you to leave your valuables in the room worry free.
There is some night noise that you can occasionally hear from Hedonism, but I think that would bother you only if you are a light sleeper.
Christopher and Betty also provide water toys - snorkel gear, life jackets, floaties, fishing rod, etc. No need to haul any of that down.

This was our first non all-inclusive experience so I was a bit worried about the booking process. There was not a lot of communication until a few weeks before our arrival. I did not need to worry. Christopher and Betty coordinated our airport transfer. We used Verol Thompson and he was a very safe driver and very reliable.

This is one of about 18 apartments that Christopher and Betty manage, so they are busy people. But they were very kind and wanted to help ensure we had a great holiday.

Feel free to inbox me if you have any questions about the room or the rental process.

For those that want to read on - I wanted to provide some information on Point Village. When we were researching this trip, I found it hard to find current information. So here are some of things we found and that might help you decide if this is the right place for you.

1. This is a former resort on 14 acres of land. The suites have been purchased and are used by long term residents and as rental places. You will meet both owners and visitors at Point Village.
2. Much of the former resort is no longer used and some building are showing signs of aging.
3. The resort is very quiet. We often had the beach to ourselves. If you like quiet, you will like Point Village.
4. The location was great for us. It allowed us to walk Long Beach (access through Hedonism - keep your eyes down) and get to some action fairly easily. It is about a 10 minute walk to Boardwalk Village where there is a restaurant, shops and a money exchange. It is about 2 mile walk to the start of the busy end of the beach where there is a lot of action.
5. We also walked to Bloody Bay. It is about a mile walk down the highway to access the beach so we only went once. The beach is very nice and would have enjoyed it more if there would have been access through the Grand Lido.
6. There is a gas station with all the basics (including patties) within easy walking distance. Right next to the station is a market with about 30 little shops for a shopping experience.
7. There is excellent snorkeling right at the resort.
8. There is a swimming pool but the hot tub was not operating.
9. There is 24 hour security. We had no issues and felt very safe.

I hope that helps. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have about Point Village.

We spent 7 nights here and the property is very well maintained. Quiet location, and the pictures are exactly what the place looks like. Nice sandy beach, good snorkeling, child friendly and yet more adults there than children. Safe place to stay away from noise and hustlers on 7 mile beach, but still close enough to walk to it. Gorgeous sunsets every night from this room.
