I rented this condo for a 5 days in July 2014 , at first I was very skeptical after reading previous bad reviews and I was expecting problems but after I arrived to this place everything changed , this place is paradise , is heaven on the earth , you will love it from the first moment you will pass the security gate , it's amazing :) pictures are real , condo was very clean and spacious , very modern with a beautiful view from balcony , but the most important are people who are working in the lobby as a concierges : very polite , smiling , always for you ready to help, those hardworking people make this place awesome . I was very impressed and I LOVE IT , LOVE IT AND LOVE IT AGAIN . GOOD JOB PEOPLE FROM PALMYRA RESORT .
this condo was very easy to book and owner Sharon was very easy to deal with , thank you , very important information : you really do need a car :) this is a perfect place and if you are going to montego bay don't miss it out

“Nice, Luxurious Appartement, BUT.....”

This condo is located in a complex (called The Palmyra) of two large apartment buildings on the north coast of Jamaica, not too far from Montego Bay. It is obvious from the lavish furnishings that a lot of money has been poured into this development, marble floors everywhere, a huge pool surrounded by tropical vegetation, a beautiful, wide, artificial beach with soft, white sand and a prime location between other big name resorts. The condo was very well kept and has ocean and hill views, though the main view is directed at the other large building in this complex. There is a full kitchen, though lacking a bit in utensils and a neat bathroom with a neat glass shower. This place would have been a steal for the price and we would have had a great time here, were it not for a number of major problems. While the building with our condo was completely done, the grounds are partially unfinished, with a third, large building that is essentially a skeleton with no facades. As we found out a couple of days into our stay from a local newspaper available online, the developers had gone into default and the entire complex had been repossessed by the banks a while ago. Most units are still individually owned and a few are rented out, but the complex was largely empty and had the odd feel of an eerily quiet ghost town overall. The bar by the pool (Cafe Palmyra) had shut down just a few days before our visit. Well, so far, not a problem for us. But then came the blackouts. No electricity and no internet, every day between noon and 5:30 PM and then again between midnight and 5:30 AM. At first we were a bit surprised that the A/C stopped halfway during the night and were told in the reception that there was a problem with the on-site generator but it would soon be fixed. Of course after a couple of days they had to admit that power was shut down intentionally to save on fuel costs. Sharon, the owner told us that the problem would be fixed soon but it wasn't and since our stay, these news have apparently made it to local media as well:

After we had made a complaint though PayPal, Sharon agreed to refund part of the price paid, but nothing has happened for two months now and she is not responding to e-mails anymore. Also in the light of the press report linked above, we would say it is more than a little risky to book anything in this entire complex.

This complex is up and running again. Like many others the recession happened and the developer ran into problems with the bank but he is out of the picture now. The property is still as beautiful and well kept, it the most gorgeous property on the gold coast. Everything that happened in the past took all the owners off guard and I refunded all my owners. The problem that I had with this person was that he wanted 100% percent refund and if not he would write a bad review. i don't respond well to threats so here we are.

All I ask is that you read all the other reviews and make up your own mind.

I would like to respond by saying that this is the most beautiful condo residence on the Island. It is a condo residence not a hotel even though it looks and feels like a five star hotel. It was never a hotel. The residents love the peace and tranquility of their residence. There are restaurants and shopping five minutes away by car. Our local mode of transportation is by taking shared taxis to downtown, they are perfectly legal and cost between $3-$4usd. Many other guests have used this method. I did not mislead my guest in any way. The property is not deserted just peaceful.

This guest stayed in my condo in April and wrote her review seven months later. Not once did she complain while staying in the unit. Please read all the other reviews that I have gotten from other guests.
