Gary, Thank you thank you I cannot say it enough. The pictures on here doesn't do justice to this beautiful place. All the staff was awesome ( Patrick, Janice, Bernie) we had a BALL.. PLEASE IF YOU DON'T DO NOTHING ELSE YOU NEED TO STAY HERE...
Honestly, when we first booked we were nervous. The pictures looked so nice, but there were not many reviews on it, so it's like well how nice could it be? My best friend and I do an annual birthday trip where we bring a group of friends on a trip internationally for 4-5 days of luxury and that is definitely what Pattoo Castle is. We were greeted by Gary and his team upon arrival, the rooms were spacious, pool was nice and the out door eating area was great. There is enough space for everyone and AC in almost every room. Security roams the property so you feel safe at all times. Check out the #pattoocastle hashtag on instagram for more photos of the castle.
My husband and I have been travelling to Negril for well over 15 years now. We have come to realize that we love the cliffs and usually stay at Rockhouse. We were engaged and married there and have made many friends there throughout the years. It's our special place. This time around, we decided to play a friends vacation to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. This required more room then the Rockhouse was able to accommodate. On our last trip to Negril we began looking at houses for a large group and nothing really blew our mind. We really wanted something special for our 10 year. Once we were back home I took another look online and found Pattoo Castle. It honestly seemed too good to be true. Could it be a scam? What was this majestic place and why had I never heard of it? Called a few friends on the island and they assured us that it was in fact real and newly renovated. I immediately reached out to Gary, who was wonderful throughout the entire process. Coordinating that many people can become tricky, and he was patient and accommodating throughout the process. 15 of us made our way to the castle for the week and had the most incredible time. The house is beyond words. The most stunning property I have seen on the island. The staff were incredible and the house pups were an added bonus! We hope to return soon, as I believe that this is a truly special place. If you have the opportunity...book it! You will not be disappointed!
We only had three nights to stay at Pattoo but it was enough to entice me to book again. Right on the sea in Negril with your own private pool and living space, what more could you ask for? All of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are spacious with high ceilings, loved that everything was stone, wood and white; very refreshing. There's plenty of space to have your own privacy with numerous verandahs and sitting areas. Super cool spot close to restaurants, bars and the beach... I will certainly return.
This is one of those places that you look at the pictures and wonder if it really is that amazing... and what I can share is that the pictures don't do it justice as it is even more amazing in person. This huge castle (and it does feel like a castle) has so many rooms and also so many places to just sit and enjoy. Aside from air conditioned bedrooms, the entire house is open air and it is some incredibly beautiful air. Big kitchen with all the modern amenities (including blender, coffee, tea maker, mw, huge fridge, stove, etc.), outdoor furniture to enjoy all angles of the ocean and pool, unbelievable wood furniture inside all the white washed bedrooms, and a staff that makes the trip full of ease and flow (from cleaning to security to landscaping to cooking). I really have nothing bad to say - at all. Just make sure to come to chill and schedule some days just to stay in. From sunrise to sunset the view does not disappoint (and it actually lasts through the night with stars and moon over ocean). An out loud thanks to Gary for sharing his bucket list level castle with all of us.
