The Condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen. Daily housekeeping services except Sundays. The resort has 24-hour security and provides a relaxed informal atmosphere and is located in the heart of the town of Ocho Rios. Because of its convenient location a car is not necessary as many attractions including a casino, the internationally known Hard Rock Café Restaurant and Bar which offers live music and the chance to view rare memorabilia from the music world, Jimmy Buffett's Margaretville Bar & Grill which is located in the Island Village Entertainment Complex and offers all-day fun, nightly entertainment, an interactive Reggae Museum and duty free shopping are all within 5 minutes walking distance. Ocho Rios is located on Jamaica's north-east coast (the approximate middle of the northern coastline) in the Parish of St. Ann, approximately 1 and 15 minutes drive east from Montego Bay. Coming from Kingston Airport it takes about 1 and 45 minutes. The town is now the cruise ship capital of Jamaica and boasts large stretches of beaches many fringed by palm trees. Area highlights include Dolphin Cove where visitors can swim with the dolphins and interact with stingrays and tropical birds and reptiles, Dunn's River Falls which is a must experience for first-time visitors. Stepping stones allow visitors easy access up and down the falls under a stimulating shower. Another area attraction of interest is Fern Gully where under a canopy of trees a visitor is surrounded by thousands of magnificent ferns. Finally, for those who are reggae lovers a visit to the birthplace of reggae icon/superstar Bob Marley is a must. Those of you who are interested in Usain Bolt take a day out and go visit his birthplace in Falmouth the locals are very friendly and will show you will he lived and the school he attended, you can have this trip organised by Mr Phillips who is also our events manager for weddings etc in Sandcastles or visit his shop that is two doors away his wife is very experience and will make that day even more memorial for you. The beach is right across from the apartment and is just short 50 yard walk.More
