This was undoubtedly one of the best vacation homes we have ever stayed in. Five siblings and my parents returned to my father's homeland to once again enjoy Jamaica. It was a dream. The location 20 minutes from Montego Bay airport is so easy and yet one does not hear planes flying above in fact it is a sanctuary of bird life, fauna and complete "serenity". The house itself is on a long ocean frontage replete with separate and very private bedrooms all with ensuites and their own outdoor alcove living room well protected from the sun and rain. The decor, the cleanliness and the upkeep are superior, largely due to excellent ownership and outstanding staff who have tended to guests there for over 25 years. They introduce themselves to you through Gladstone, the man in charge of everything there and assure you from the very start, their number one priority is to take care of your needs and make you happy. Maud the Chef, Jean the housekeeper, Claudette who assists, Wisdom on security are prepared to bend over backward to provide the best experience ever. Expect to sleep extraordinarily well under each turret, the mattresses, the turn downs, the climate control through fans and/or air conditioning; nothing is left to chance. Fresh fish is what we focussed on for meals but be sure that menu planning with Maude is a dream. Salads were delicious, eggs to order, desserts varied and any Jamaican food available to savour. While the house fits 8 perfectly, there is room for extra beds in 3 of the 4 rooms.The beach is fine and the water very warm and calm particularly in the morning. We floated in the ocean on waterbeds for ages, again everything was provided including sunscreen and bug repellent - use both every day and evening and it is great. The terrace and the lounging beds you sit on to sun may be the best ever. Our family had an unforgettable experience as close to perfection as we have ever known.

Gladstone, Maud, Jean, Pauline and Wisdom, the staff, was the best part of this vacation. They made my vacation with my 6 daughters exceed my expectations for a trip that my girls could always remember me by. The place is beautiful and kept impeccable at all times. The food is delicious and Maud did a wonderful job managing my food budget. Not a dog person, but even the dogs added to the peaceful atmosphere. I will never forget the staff and I will always have fond memories thanks to them.

“Perfect - Best Vacation ever for relaxing”

We have rented many homes or villas on trips but this ones the topper. Because the house was on the water, perfect to swim, paddle board, kayak and have dinners at sunset. Because the house is staffed with the finest people you worry about Nothing! Everything taken care of for you. We felt that Gladstone, Maud, Jean and Pauline as well as Alicia our driver were the best people in any Villa you could rent. The house had a perfect layout for couples or families with older children. The house was well decorated and had a ease of relaxation you can't get everywhere you go. We loved the house, the beach, the meals made for us, the ease of having a driver, the use of the Country Club membership, the tennis courts on the property. Here's what I want to say there was nothing bad , it was the perfect relaxing Vacation of my life and we travel plenty.

We were a group of 3 couples. This property was perfect. The view was spectacular and the villa beautiful and clean. The open air feel was the best part. There was a view from each room that was to die for. The staff is the best part about this property. They were so gracious and helpful but not "too much". The meals were delicious and plentiful. We could not have asked for anything more. The resident pets were so sweet and added to the experience.

Gladstone, Maud, Jean, Pauline and Winston from Serenity on the Beach Villa at Round Hill Jamaica,

I’m writing this on my last day at the villa because I know once I get back home I would get too busy with work and the kids. As I sit back to reflect on my trip here at Serenity on the Beach Villa, I can't tell you how much I appreciated your kindness, it made our vacation a memorable experience.

Once we arrived at Serenity we notice the beautiful the surroundings, and the two gorgeous dogs Spot and Wrinkles, Gladstone stated, “yes we have dogs, you have dogs, it’s your dogs”. That made me laugh.

Thank you Maud for cooking for us every day. The food was A+++ the staff at Serenity on the Beach made it really special. They were so wonderful in spoiling us. Gladstone was such gentleman and a complete professional; he catered to our every need.

Jean made out room comfortable day and night. I really enjoy our fresh flowers every night on our bed. Thank you Pauline, for washing our clothing daily and sending us home with clean clothes. Thank you Winston for kept a good eye on us every night accompany with Wrinkles and Spot.

My husband and I had fond memories of our vacations together at Serenity on the Beach Villa. Beautiful, private beach, wonderful food, and lovely people, this vacation exceeded our expectation! Our group was very pleased with the service and food. The place was as beautiful as it is on the web site. The rooms are like coming home. We've tried other resorts over the years, but never found one that we liked more then Serenity on the Beach Villa.

Gladstone, Maud, Jean, Pauline and Winston “Thank you again” for the wonderful time we had with you. You will always be in our hearts and prayers.

See you soon,
Mr. and Mrs. Retamozo
