Hotel Guest Reviews of the Emerald View Resort Villa

Our hotel ratings and reviews are from real hotel guests. Priceline.com ensures that its reviews are guests-only by proactively sending hotel surveys to customers after they've completed their hotel stays. In the post-stay surveys, priceline.com hotel customers are asked a number of questions about their stay and the hotel. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, the survey asks guests to rate their overall experience and specifically rate the hotel's cleanliness, staff and location. Priceline.com does not allow site visitors to post unsolicited hotel reviews.

The staff was friendly and helpful, my room was huge and had a great view of the ocean. The wifi from my room worked great.
The cost of breakfast $15 US for an omelet was a bit much and the rates they charge for taking you places are steep. Rent a car, it's much more cost effective!!

Staff was friendly
Too far out from Montego bay. Taxi fee out of control

Breakfast was 10.00 us currency. Resort was quiet and did provide free shuttle to chill out hut on the beach for dinner.

The view was gorgeous overlooking the mountains out into the ocean and the staff was by far the best! The breakfast was delicious as well and authentic.
The hotel is a bit far from town, about a 15-20minute ride, so we had to plan going into town accordingly.

Upon arrival we were allowed to choose which room we wanted and picked one with a mountain/ocean view that was beautiful. The room was spacious and had AC and cable tv. the outdoor area was beautiful with a very clean pool and multiple hammocks. As gorgeous as the view and grounds were the best part was by far the staff. Jennifer was so sweet to us and was only a phone call away when we needed to be picked up or taken someplace. She was very accommodating and helpful. The hotel also offered trips to Negril or a luminous water trip that they provided transportation and plans for. We ate breakfast every morning at the hotel as well and it was the best food we had all trip. We tried everything on the Jamaican breakfast menu and all of it was outstanding. It does take a while for your food to be done since they make everything fresh so just allow time for that. Definitely recommend! ...read more

the view of the ocean and surrrounding area and staff

The hotel staff was very friendly and attentive. The grounds were well kept and beautiful. The view was one of the best views I had ever seen before. It was very peaceful and quiet and relaxing.

Only the View
This should not be classified as a resort. It was more of a boarding house type setting. The room was dirty, the kitchen was dirty, overall experience was terrible

The owner was nice. Should definitely look into remodeling the entire home,

The Location and scenery very good
Being in a hot climate it would make sence to have a ficility for cold drinking water at all times and a vending machine for snacks and sodas Also bed and breakfast should be part of the package.

Hotel has a great sea view beautiful gardesns

I liked the cultural side of it. The view was amazing
The hotel owner Jennifer was very deceiving . The hotel is on a rough hill which is isolated from everything and she used this to her advantage by sneaking in charges to take us down the street and back. Made us pay full price for bfast that wasn't good

I would stay somewhere else next time that is closer to everything. The breakfast that she advertised was not the breakfast I got but she still made us pay full price. i was supposed to ackee fish and pancakes but got an omlet and a peice of hard toast. when we walked down the hill a local served a much better breakfast for a whole lot cheaper. Just felt completely ripped off. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Stay somewhere closer to the beach and not on a rocky isolated hill where the walk is torture and the pay adds up to get to basic places at basic times by her shuttle. ...read more

The management and staff were tops.

This property is about 15 miles from the airport. From the airport proceed toward Ochos Rios. When you see the second TOTAL gas station on the left side of the highway turn to the right at the traffic light. Proceed up that road and when you see a Red Arrow at the cross street turn left the villa is about 1 mile further. You must drive slowly on the access roads to prevent damage to your vehicle. The People who operate the villa are the best. ...read more

The staff were nice, but seemed inexperienced in providing quality service.
It is the first time in my life I stayed at a B&B which didn't have breakfast included. My last day I was shocked to learn I had to pay up for the breakfasts I ate. Another customer had Jamaican breakfast included and I was only served US bf...??

I would not recommend this hotel due to remote location and the added price to get around. The lower room price is deceiving and not good for attracting return customers. The management advised it was those booking through Priceline.com where breakfasts were excluded. In addition, lasting impressions are everything in the service industry and it didn't sit well with me to have missed the opportunity to perhaps try other restaurants in the area for Jamaican breakfasts if they weren't going to include it anyway. ...read more
