This location was perfect, about 20 minutes from the airport and downtown MoBay. We had 180 degree scenic panoramic views from our suite, of the beautiful coastline and mountainside. If you rent a vehicle it is very easy to get around town and the roads are also easy to drive on. Jennifer and staff were extremely accommodating and pleasant, even...

Lovely accommodations on the hill overlooking the mountains and ocean. Jennifer and Duran were welcoming, and afforded us the opportunity to experience real Jamaica. The Greenwood House is worth a visit and is located just up the road. The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious. Jennifer takes pride in her place and makes sure you are taken care of.

Economical, authentic, beautiful, clean and quiet. Jennifer (superwoman manager making sure of you're comfort) Melissa (sweetest cook this side of the galaxy), and Duran (Duran) perfect transporter without flaw.

If you travel around Jamaica you will realize just how nice this place is...countryside beauty still with easy access to beaches and attractions. We enjoyed a morning walk up the hill past greenwood great house and spectacular views. The owner and staff really cares for you with a relaxed charm. Rooms are nice, be sure to ask about available upgrades.

I cannot fathom how the Emerald View Resort is rated #2 on TripAdvisor! Either people writing the five-star reviews are phonies, or they have no prior travel experience and do not know what a nice accommodation offers to its guests. This was my third visit to Jamaica, and I would never stay here again! Especially for the prices being charged....

Jennifer H, Manager at Emerald View Resort, responded to this review

On behalf of my staff I do apology that you felt unwelcomed during your stay. Jamaicans are one of the most welcoming people in the world and I am truly sorry that we fell short. I am somewhat confused. In your review you mentioned that your sheets were "yellowish" upon entering the room. Upon check in your sheets were in...

Nice clean place with beautiful view. You are not near the beach but they will shuttle you down if you want to go. The villa is in the hills with a beautiful view. Staff is friendly and accommodating--Melissa is great! And the food is good too. Nice clean pool an excellent value.

I recently stayed here with a friend for a bit of winter R&R. The owner, Jenny, and her staff were all extremely friendly and helped us to get the most of our week's stay. There were a few minor niggles with the plumbing - the shower didn't work that well, the sink in the bathroom drained very slowly and the...

A friend and I recently stayed here for 7 nights and we both like exploring new places. All the staff were very helpful and our room was spacious, clean and welcoming. The hillside location has a lovely breeze and we also saw several types of birds many of which we looked down on having our breakfast. Jennifer and Duran arranged...

On November 5th, 2016 the owner Ms. Jennifer opened up her doors to facilitate the shooting of a music video at the property. The piano room was utilized along with the pool side that shows a captivating view of the sea, along with its environs was absolutely gorgeous. The rooms are clean and comfortable.
