GoldenEye in Oracabessa, Jamaica

Nestled between emerald forests, golden sands, and the crystal-blue waters of the Caribbean, immerse yourself in complete serenity as you discover a beautiful secluded world with a name that says it all: GoldenEye. Tucked into beautiful Oracabessa Bay on the northern shores of Jamaica, this stunning resort evolved from James Bond creator Ian Fleming's private villa estate. With 1-2 bedroom villas, enchanting lagoon cottages, and even Mr. Fleming's private villa, relax in paradise as you sink into the lap of luxury. With modern, sleek styles, each villa is spacious and inviting, with high ceilings, sunlight streaming through wooden jalousie picture windows, and the cool ocean breeze flowing throughout. Custom-made king-sized beds are as plush as can be, while expansive lounges provide the perfect spot for an afternoon nap. Classic claw-foot tubs add an air of Bondian-grandeur, while private outdoor showers entice with a similar sense of daring. Step out onto your private deck, music drifting from your fabulous sound system, and sip a martini (shaken, not stirred) or your own drink of choice, as you gaze out over the beauty of Jamaica and the Caribbean. Enjoy complete luxury and style, adventure and relaxation, and live every day to the fullest with your stay at GoldenEye.

Wake to the gentle sounds of the surf rolling ashore, the sun warming the waters, and stroll down to lagoon's edge to dive right in. Spend the morning paddle-boarding or kayaking around the lagoon, or delight in a scenic jet ski safari along Jamaica's north shore. Venture out on a morning fishing trip with the local fishermen, and enjoy your work later that day as the resort's chef prepares your fresh catch exactly how you like it. Spend the afternoon at sea with a Sans Souci scuba diving excursion or a deep sea sport fishing trip, or be a landlubber and play a beautiful round of golf at Sandals Ocho Rios Golf & Country Club or Runaway Bay. Delve inland to discover the lush, vibrant rainforests of Jamaica, and delight in a hiking adventure through Cranbrook Flower Farm and Botanical Garden or the misty jungle trails of Mystic Mountain. Ride the rapids in an inner tube down White River, in breathtaking White River Valley, and make your way back to the resort to join in a sunset yoga session that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Watch the sun set with fiery brilliance behind the Caribbean that evening, then sit down at the tree-house styled Gazebo and dine on fabulous gourmet cuisine, peruse an extensive international wine list, and gaze out over a view that can melt hearts like James Bond himself. In beautiful Oracabessa Bay, let the warm ambiance of Jamaica fill you with serenity as the luxury of GoldenEye sweeps you off your feet, and gaze out into the sunset as you dream of your next fabulous day in paradise.

I've wanted to experience GoldenEye for years, having heard from Jamaican friends that it was the best place to go. It is, but in a way that's difficult to describe. We have stayed in many 5 star resorts (and plenty of dumps too!) and this is certainly luxurious, but in a much more understated way. If you're looking for grandeur, or pretense, this is NOT your place. If you're looking for total and complete privacy, a place where no one will bat an eyelash if you're barefoot at dinner, and spectacular pools and lagoons- go to GoldenEye. Mr. Blackwell has mastered hip and effortless luxury- it almost feels as though he created this hideaway as his own private retreat for himself and celebrity friends (Grace Jones was at the bar with him during our stay). The food is superb, which is challenging to do in a small resort, but they keep it fresh with a menu that changes nightly from sushi to barbecue and more. We stayed in Lagoon 7, which is much more private than the beach huts, and larger as well. Strategically located near the Bizot Bar for late nights of rum punch or early morning coffee. It was also fun to do early morning kayaks around the lagoon. I liked how we could one minute be in complete seclusion and peace in our lagoon villa, and a few steps away was the fun laid back energy of Bizot Bar. What they do perfectly: amazing food, privacy, insanely comfortable beds, quietly attentive service, amazing music (naturally!), hip scene despite being so small. The spa was excellent as well. The only minor things I'd say are that it's very rustic and thus not well lit, which made for some interesting walks back at night. Also (this is a weird one but it came up frequently)- I could never find a trash can in any of the bathrooms or the spa. So add some flashlights and trash cans and you have perfection. Oh- it's almost 2 hours from the airport, so be prepared for a trek, but in exchange you truly will feel complete privacy!

Virtually flawless! We spent our honeymoon here 10 years ago before the big expansion. We loved it then and we're quite afraid that they would screw it up with the expansion. Well they did a wonderful job! Last time we had one of the one bedroom villas near the Fleming house. This time we had one of the beach huts in the new part. They paid great attention to privacy and lush vegetation surrounding very well-built little huts. There are several places to swim and lounge around. Add to that really delicious food at every meal, and a top-notch spa. Bravo!!!

I travel a lot. For business, I'm on the road about 150 days a year. Because of this fact, I make it a point to vacation OFTEN and WELL with my wife and sometimes wife & kids. TripAdvisor is one of many tools I use to pick places to visit. Unfortunately I'm not super diligent about reviewing most of the places I visit, but Goldeneye was a place that I knew that I'd be reviewing from the day I arrived. My experience at Goldeneye was unique, and I hesitate to be even remotely critical, but I think I need to be a little so you can better understand the vibe and know what you're getting into. I'll preface ALL of that by starting with - the place was a 9.5/10 across the board! We chose Goldeneye for our Pre-Summer kickoff trip. Mid-May is the start of the rainy season in Jamaica, and even more so on the eastern side of the island. This was a gamble; and one that we were fortunate enough to win! There are 2 things that I found to be exceptional at Goldeneye: 1) the food, and 2) the ambiance 1) I wasn't expecting GREATNESS with the food here, but boy was I wrong. There's only one restaurant, but the menu changes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. They also do special dinners a few nights a week. We got to experience Sushi Night (was a Friday) and BBQ night (was a Saturday). BOTH were awesome. I know good sushi - I eat it twice a week, I've eaten it in Japan, Hawaii, and NYC. The sushi chef that comes in from Kingston was GOOD. This was legit, simple, fresh, and delicious sushi. They also had some Sake pairings. BBQ night featured a whole hog, chicken, beef, and seafood. This was 'cued on site in big pit barbecues by cooks who know what they're doing. The regular "Bizat Bar" menu is short, simple, and relevant. I didn't try Non-local staples like pizza or burgers, but I'm sure they are excellent. I DID however eat the local fare and it was amazing. Not a bad meal all weekend. THE DRINKS: try them all. Like the food, I didn't have a complaint the entire time. They're expensive, but they're GOOD and the pours are ANYTHING BUT stingy; utilizing high quality brands and fresh local ingredients. 2) Ambiance: the place just screams ambiance. It actually "whispers" ambiance to be accurate. We stayed in a lagoon cottage. My wife told me it had a "Summer Camp" vibe - I'll agree, but I need to emphasize: a summer camp made for relaxing, with amazing food, located in a supernaturally beautiful lagoon, in a tropical rainforest paradise. Yes, they do pull a mosquito net over your bed during turn-down service, but this is a positive. Look - if you want to go to the Four Seasons, go to the Four Seasons. Don't get me wrong, I like a good presidential suite from time to time, but this was simply AWESOME. I'd have to think the fact that it was windy was helpful on the bug front, because it wasn't really too bad. It was buggier in the Bahamas last year (less windy); but there ARE cans of bug spray in the room, and I can imagine it gets buggy when the winds are still.. Here's the only "kicker" of the whole place - and I want to emphasize that this wasn't really a fault for me; but it was different and notable.... If you're used to sitting by the pool and a server coming by every once in a while to refill your drink or bring you a snack - you're not going to get that here... At least that was my experience... There wasn't really pool or beach service per se... At first I felt a little inconvenienced by this, until I realized that the place was more like staying at your rich friend "Ian Flemming's" Guest house than staying at a Jamaican resort... Meaning, it really was a fair tradeoff having to get my fat A-- out of the chair to go to the Bizat bar for a fresh rum drink - for the peace and quiet I got in return. If you want to eat by the pool, I'm sure the staff wouldn't mind if you just take your plate with you from the bar or restaurant. Overall - this was a top 3 for my wife and I, and I look forward to trying out their other property "The Caves" next year...

Simply perfect I was there, lagoon villa 7, three years ago and this time I wanted to treat my partner for his birthday there, same villa, fingers cross, and we got it The service was super, great enough that on both visits we stayed within the resort the whole time Now they even expanded with huts and more swimming spots, a beach and a couple of pools added, this is an amazing spot, no wander why so many people keep on returning Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay, shame though that the birthday cake arranged for my partner came as planned, but we did not want a defrosted one !!! Still, many thanks indeed Hopefully we will be going there again in a year or two Ziad& Fraser

Authentic, special place! I spent 4 fabulous nights with my husband and another couple and cannot say enough about this place. There are many special spots to hang out on this property. But my favourite spot was Button Beach with captain Kirk, the bartender who loved sharing stories with us. Swimming in the Lagoon was another favourite but the staff of Goldeneye were exceptional, always making sure we were taken care of. I am planning my next visit already. I recommend a beach hut with an outdoor shower!
