My husband and I stayed at Piper's Cove May 7-15th, 2013 and was very pleased. Ms. Chin, the owner, is a most humble and accommodating hostess along with Latoya who can always be found at the front desk smiling and very willing to help in any way possible.
Firstly, the grounds are kept immaculate, the rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Some of the rooms are 1 bedroom apartments with a full kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, bedroom and a small balcony, there are also studio apartments. Some have ocean views and others have garden views. There is a kitchen on the property where you can order meals if you do not feel like venturing out. There is a small pool to take a dip/swim in along with a small beach area. This was our 2nd wedding anniversary and we were looking for peace and quiet and we sure found it at Piper's Cove ;-) ;-). I must say that every staff member was courteous, pleasant and very willing to help in any way. We want to thank Ms. Chin, LaToya, Beres, Dianne, the 2 wonderful women who cooked our meals along with the rest of the staff for everything. Beres, hugs and kisses to you darling for all that you did for us.
When ready to venture out there is a beautifully clean and wonderful beach within walking distance called Flavours Beach and there is a bar/restaurant right there and the food is pretty good. If you take public transport (van) into the town of Ocho Rios it is dirt cheap and takes about 20-25 minutes to get there and you can pick up your souvenirs, etc. A very short drive from the hotel you will find small stores and small supermarkets (L&M was my favorite). Of course, there are places to get good jerk, I liked Scotchie's Jerk Centre but did NOT like Ultimate Jerk Centre.
If you are not looking for the run of the mill all-inclusive, activity ridden type place and prefer a simple, small, quiet and personable hotel then please give Ms. Chin and LaToya a call, they will only be too happy to answer any questions you may have. Also, feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my review.
