Villa Reviews:

“Our whole family loved the week at Baywatch. The location and beach were fantastic. The staff were all great. The food was simply wonderful. We ranged in age from 1 year old to 70+ and it was perfect for all of us. We had almost every meal on the porch by the pool and ate like Jamaican royalty. Our one night out for dinner was good...but a disappointment compared to dining at Baywatch. We asked to be served real Jamaican food and it was delicious. In addition to traditional dishes we had fruits that were new to us and a real treat. We picked ripe mangos off the property trees and were spoiled by the bounty of local fruit and vegetables. (Don’t miss the curry goat!) We did not want to leave, and everyone wants to go back. This was the most relaxing vacation we have been on. Baywatch was so comfortable that it was hard to go out to explore the area!”

"What more can you ask for? A fabulous house on the beach and a private pool, a wonderful cook, attentive housekeepers, perfect weather and breathtaking sunsets. All of our rooms were very nice the house was open and had a wonderful breeze going through. Truly relaxing and fun! We're going back!"

“We had a fabulous time at Baywatch. The house was very nice, it was clean and pretty. The pool & porch over looking the sea was awesome! We ate every meal outside – what a spectacular view! The staff - excellent. The food - wonderful! The kids loved Cheryl and Janet’s cooking! We had a great week…we hope we can do it again sometime! Please extend another thank you to the entire staff, they took good care of us and really made us feel at home. We were so sad to leave!

"About 11 years ago we found Baywatch and its sister villas, Siesta and Bahia, in Runaway Bay, Jamaica. We wanted to take a large group to Jamaica for our wedding. We found paradise and a home away from home. We have been back at least once per year ever since. The villas are centrally located, easily accessible from Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. They are right on the beach. The houses are spacious and allows for a nice Jamaican breeze to blow through. The grounds are perfectly maintained. Cheryl and her team - Laverne, Janet and Dimples - make the best food and treat us like family. We now have a five year old and he refers to the villas as his "Jamaica house". We never want to leave when we visit!"
~ Guests review from 2014/2015 (they have been staying at the property since 2003)

"Found this villa for the emancipendence holiday in Jamaica. I have been to several villas in Jamaica and this is probably the best ones. Direct access to the beach, although public beach was not crowded. The staff especially Janet was great and very helpful. The kids had a great time."

"We had an absolutely lovely stay at Baywatch Villa. We had an age range of 18 to 80 in our group of nine, and all were comfortable. So nice to start each morning with fresh fruit served by Cheryl. Dale (one of the groundskeepers) was so helpful. He brought over a bicycle for my husband's use and when we expressed a desire for some riding and fishing, introduced us to Robert the horseman and Michael the fishing boat captain. Robert brought the horses to us at the house. Similarly, Michael brought the boat to us. We spent much of the time snorkeling and kayaking in front of the house. Also excellent day trips to the Blue Hole, Dunn's River Falls, and other adventures. We are ready for a return trip!"
~ Guests from January 2012

"We had a marvelous time. Oh do I miss my morning fresh fruit! Cheryl prepared the most excellent of meals. We have now added festival and mango tea bread to our repertoire at home. Dale was so very helpful. He introduced us to Robert the horseman and we had a delightful ride through the mountain and in the water. Robert brought the horses to the house. Dale also introduced us to Michael for fishing. Michael brought the boat right to the house as well. :-) We would certainly love to stay again some day."

"We are a couple who came back about a month ago from two wonderful weeks at the Baywatch villa and it exceeded our expectations. The house is located right on the beach, just stroll out of the garden and you're there.

It has a large, beautifully landscaped and perfectly maintained, tropical garden with a pool, two large porches, a poolside terrace, all with spectacular views and sounds of the ocean. Although the beach is not officially private, it feels as though it is, since the house is located almost at the end of a long beach, so there are only very few people passing. The whole house blends in perfectly with its surroundings and gives you the ultimate caribbean feel. The house is located in an ideal location, very central along the north coast (the drive from Montego Bay airport is slightly more than an hour). We rented a car and made trips to both Negril in the west and Port Antonio in the east.

The perfect and hospitable staff consists of 2 gardeners, 3 ladies who do the housekeeping and cooking and a security guard who is present during the evening and night. They made us feel right at home even more, always pro-actively willing to help and to show the way into the real Jamaica, never compromising your privacy.

Cheryl, Laverne and Dimples took great care of us and no request was too much. Cheryl is a great cook and she made the most delicious local dishes for us. You name it and she can make it, but we just wanted to taste as much of the local cuisine as possible and so we did!

Jamaica itself is a wonderful and varied holiday destination and staying at this villa gives a true sense of home away from home, except that this home is in the middle of a tropical paradise! Highly recommended!"

"We had a fabulous time in Jamaica . I only wish I was there now! Everyone had a fantastic time and we couldn't think up a complaint if we tried. All of the staff were wonderful and very helpful and Cheryl was an amazing cook. She made everything so great for us.My husband and I have traveled quite a bit over the years and generally we like to go to a different place each time, but we would definitely like to go back to Jamaica and spend some more time at Baywatch -- was perfect for our group.
