A group of local Jamaican entrepreneurs arranged to meet a group of women business owners, speakers and life coaches who were arriving via a cruise ship. We agreed to meet at Island Village. It was just a short walk for them from the pier. We gathered on the large lawn for our awards presentation. The grounds are well kept and... More

This place is mainly geared up for cruise ship passengers and other tourists. Usual array of touristy shops and eateries as well as a cinema, Oceans Eleven Club and Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville. Prices are cheaper here than at the other shopping plazas that the tour drivers will want to take you too. ( For a commission from the thieving store... More

Perfect for anyone wanting to drink or spend lots of money on souvenirs. There is a lot of nice stuff to see for anyone wanting to learn about Jamaican history and culture, but all of that can be seen in 30-60 minutes. We really shopped around among the street vendors and found some really good deals on wood carvings. Once... More

Nice open space , that often wakens up in the evening, with young people. Very safe and a few nice places to have a snack or enjoy Margueritaville if you want something lively

Consists mostly of many jewellery stores with items that you could buy anywhere and gift shops with tees, bags and trinkets made in China. It was a hotel recommended excursion with free transportation. The Margaritaville bar was ok but the music was so loud we stayed outside to wait for our driver. I was hoping for more local artisans.... it... More

Not much to see or do here unless you're in the market for Jamaica or Bob Marley themed/inspired souvenirs or looking for Margaritaville which is at the end of the pier. We were looking for Blue Mountain Coffee, in particular, since it was extremely expensive in the resort gift shop but the price wasn't much better in the shops here.... More

A small, colorful village with enough shops to shop till you drop. There is a movie theatre and even a duty free jewelry shop. I wish the jewelry and many other shops were open, but apparently a lot of shops close on Sunday for church and family time. The only shop open was a very small, but affordable and abundant... More

Maybe just my bad luck but unfortunately the day I went most of there was hardly anyone around so no atmosphere. I cannot recommend it from my visit, but perhaps it is better at other times
