Goldeneye beach
10 Enzo Ferruzzi

We absolutely adore Blissful Bizot. The atmosphere is fantastic, the music is great, and it's the perfect spot to enjoy a stunning sunset and possibly meet some new people.

Ocho Rios
8 Talia Parker

The resort is absolutely stunning. The staff is incredible and incredibly attentive. The food is enjoyable, with the buffet being the standout as each restaurant offered delicious options. However, there was a significant delay in receiving our food, which took over an hour to arrive at our table. Additionally, we were hoping for a more authentic Jamaican experience with local music, but instead, we were treated to 90's/2000s pop music. Although all food, drinks, and some activities were included, the items we purchased separately were quite pricey.

Pagee beach
6 Crispin Waverly

This beach is an absolute gem with endless possibilities. However, it would greatly benefit from the addition of restroom facilities and access to clean, running water for rinsing off after a refreshing swim in the ocean. Let's work together to make this beach a truly exceptional destination for all to enjoy.
