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.

We went with another could to have sushi at the hotel. We were staying at another property and had made a reservation. When we arrived there was no record of our reservation and the staff said they had no tables available. We explained that we had booked through the place we were staying and as my wife looked for the email correspondence the staff asked to speak with whoever made the booking. I asked if there were no tables then why did it matter. As soon as we showed them email correspondence with the hotel GM a table miraculously became available. When we got to the restaurant it was only 2/3rds full. The saving grace for the evening was that the food was delicious though the service was a little slow.

From the moment we arrived we knew that this place was special. The staff were lovely. We knew we had to wait for room but we were treated like family. What a wonderful place. Relaxed and easy going. Beaches are chill, food is Great and if you want to just be yourself and relax this is the spot. Music, reading and sippin Thank you again! We'll Be back.

Where do I begin? This place is so private that there are no signs on the gate to enter. We stayed here for 6 nights and did not want to leave. We stayed in the StrangeWays Villa, talk about private. Every single person we encountered was better then the next( with the exception of the front desk staff who were not friendly and very nonchalant). Clayton was the BEST. He was there for us the whole time for anything we needed. We had dinner cooked at our Villa by the amazing Pam to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing. The resort went out of their way and even had a bakery bake a strawberry shortcake for my birthday( Jamaicans had no idea what that was but they made it happen). The food is amazing and cooked fresh daily. The best part aside from the location of our Villa and the privacy is truly their amazing staff. They all came out to say goodbye on our last night and each wished me a happy birthday. Shout out to Dante for making me a birthday card. We vacation together with some dear friends every year and this place is hands down the best place we have been too. Kudos to the staff and management team.

What a disappointment. This resort is ridiculously expensive and offers very little in service and food. This is a beautiful property that prefers to rest on its laurels. The staff was uniquely disinterested in service, and a couple of staff members were downright rude (apparently not just to me, as while traveling home another member of our group had the same complaint) Food choices are limited and the Bizot Bar is open for dinner only when they feel like it.. meaning when they think they will have enough customers. My suite had a kitchenette which upon arrival had crumbs and old fruit-which was never replaced, nor were the items used from the mini bar. Incidentally housekeeping came to clean my room on my last day and had no idea it was checkout day. Uninformed staff at a luxury resort is unacceptable. If you enjoy going in the ocean, make sure you have footwear as rocks abound. The resort only has a small private beach.There are cottages, villas and beach huts but not all are on the beach, as many surround a lagoon with no direct beach access. I've read reviews that describe the resort as 'hip'... not so much if 'hip' includes nightlife- there is none. I was anticipating a great spa experience and that too was below standard: the masseuse showed up 15 minutes late for an hour service, but charged full price. I never went back to the spa. I suggest you do research before booking and look at comparable properties ( Round Hill , Half Moon). One more thing: the mosquito nets for sleeping and the 'Go' mosquito aerosol spray are a must; they are provided for a reason!

Just had five days at Goldeneye, and it is truly a lovely place. But lets get one thing clear from the start, the BEACH HUTs are NOT on the beach! They are arranged in a cluster at one end of the resort. About four of them have direct view on to water, the rest are among the others on the 'inside area' but do have lovely gardens around them, but your view will be other huts. They are quite closely packed together though. We felt the brochure is somewhat misleading on this, showing a veranda looking out onto the Beach & Sea. We were very lucky, ours looked out onto Snorkelers Cove and was just fantastic. Given the horrendous cost we would have been very disappointed had we got a hut on the inside. The Beach Huts themselves are lovely, well designed and so many things have been thought of down to a Sonos system to play your own music (I can only take so much Reggae !) and even a complimentary small bottle of Blackwell's own Rum & Mosquito repellent! Lovely. The showers are fantastic! At night the paths are lit up with a mixture of lanterns & coloured lighting all very tastefully done. Most of the other more expensive rooms/houses are either on the beach or on the lagoon waterfront. Though the resort was nearly full, we didn't feel like we were in a packed establishemnt like Sandals down the road! We can only recall there being one other time that someone else was in a pool when we were! Sitting in the small 'Eye Pool' on the edge of the Caribbean Sea as the Sun set along the coast is a memory that will stay with us for a long time. All water based sports are included, you can try it all, Snorkeling literally in front of our Hut, a few strokes out of Snorkelers Cove and you are in Coral area. It was lovely. My wife is no great swimmer so to be able to do this so close to our Hut was great. The staff around are looking out for you, and literally can't do enough for you. In fact the staff are one of Goldeneye's great assets. Again no problem getting equipment it is located a various places around the resort from the beautiful lagoon to the Button Beach on Oracabessa Bay. If you're British then brace yourself for the costs. It was already expensive but with the recent devaluation of the Pound the prices (for us at least who are not bankers or film stars) are horrendous. Once you add the 26.5% Service & Tax charge, and then the expectation of a tip on top of that, it gets silly. Expect to pay well over £100 every evening for a meal for two. The food though is very good, and cocktails (around £10 to £12 each) are very good. Rum is everywhere! Fine by me... There are a few alternatives outside - definately try Elroy's Seafood hut on James Bond Beach. You can Kayak there! Lobster for around £20 and there is also a beach bar. It closes at 5pm though so plan to eat early. There are also a couple of 'local' eateries on the track to Oracabessa. Transfers - this was a disaster on arrival. We paid well over the odds to arrange a car through the hotel to meet us and take us from Kingston airport to Goldeneye. It never showed. Having never been to Jamaica before we only paid this in order to avoid the very grief that we encountered on arrival in a country that we didn't know and that by some reports would have seen us dead in the Gang warfare crossfire as we took a step outside the airport!! As it happens a company outside called JUTA Tours helped us out and dealt with the hotel. They got us there safely. So we were well pissed before even getting to Goldeneye and asking ourselvs how much have we paid for this! Thankfully the holiday was great after that initial debacle. sadly though we did not recieve an apology from the hotel for the saga whch was also a bit disappointing. Kingston to Goldeneye is charged at $200 by the hotel. Montego Bay to Goldeneye is $165 After 5 days here we had a few days booked at one of Chris Blackwells other hotels - Strawberry Hill whch was a loevly few days near Kingston in the Blue Mountains before flying home. In all, the issues with the transfers aside, we loved Goldeneye and would love to be able to afford to return one day. PS go and say hello to Ivanhoe in his Dr Hoe shack outside the resorts back gate - if you just fancy a quiet minute with a cheap cold beer!
