We have stayed in alot of luxury places, always 5 stars. This resort deserves to be with the best. This was our anniversary trip and we first went to The Caves.

This was my second time here and it continues to impress. It's a very low key resort and doesn't have the best beaches around it. However it's next to a gorgeous cove and the staff make for a stay perfect. The room have character with a rustic but basic decor. I will be back again soon

I get pretty regular massages, but the therapist Dawn administered the best massage of my life. Overall the entire property is as about as laid back and relaxing as you can get. Good vibes from everybody and the staff is accommodating but also unobtrusive. But the spa is remarkable and Dawn is a main reason why.

We stayed in this resort as the second part of a two resort adventure in Jamaica (see our review on GeeJam in Port Antonio region). After a fantastic stay in Port Antonio, we hired a car for the near 2 hour ride to GoldenEye. Security is very good. You’d never really know what was behind the gates! We were shown... More

This was our second visit to the Goldeneye, and it will not be our last!! Whether the resort is full or not, it never feels as if there is anyone else around, except for the amazing staff.

I have never seen anything like this resort in the Caribbean. It is like something that you would find in the South Pacific. The lagoon cottages are so well thought out and made. The simple but elegant architecture of them is amazing. The porch hangs out over the lagoon and we would just sit there and watch tropical fish swim... More

We stayed at a two bedroom beach (though also at the corner of the lagoon) villa. We had a nice stretch of beach pretty much to our ourselves.
