This is your first time visiting Jamaica or renting a vacation home. You’ve heard lots of great things for families to enjoy while on vacation. Such as towering mountain ranges, plantations, cascading waterfalls, horseback riding through the mountains, swim with the dolphins and pristine beaches.
You’ve also seen the media reports regarding crimes on the Island. According to the US Department of State, the majority of crime occurs in impoverished areas.
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.
