Great Villa Vacations

Why You should Stay in A Villa and Not a Resort

Personalize Experience, personal Staff in your very own Luxury private villa

We are often asked this question by travelers looking to  book a vacation in Jamaica. What is the difference between a villa and a resort or hotel?

So I find it necessary to write and outline why as well as using the  testimonial of a former guests.

There are many chain hotels / resorts looking like a string of windowed boxes on the beach with very they little charm, almost no vegetation and very little connection to Jamaican culture.

Resorts/ hotels housekeepers have an average of 25 -50 rooms to clean each day and  If you need a butler you need to pay extra and Personal chef,  or forget about it.

Staying in a Resort/ hotel and need to go off site to explore and experience the Island and its many attractions, you’ll need to pay extra for transportation.

Purchase  an off site activity from the front desk,  the cost is significantly  higher than you would pay if you  did the booking yourself online or at the excursion.
