We were so happy and comfortable with this little resort. A lot of people live here and are quite friendly. The staff was awesome and friendly. If you need a ride or tour around the Island please ask about Watson's Tours. He's a great guy! The condo was so comfortable and the bed and unit was clean and everything worked. We'd stay there again and again! The beach is right around the corner and the tranportation center is down the street so you can go all over the island like a local! Fantastic!

This should not be a hotel offered on Expedia. We did not stay at this hotel after seeing the room we were going to be put in. We transferred to a sister property which was not very great either, but much better than this.

I visited Chrissans in March of 2007 and it was far better then what I had expected for a budget hotel! I was concerned being a female traveling alone on my my first visit to Jamaice, but I felt completely at ease at Chrissans. What a pleasant vacation! It's 2 hrs from the airport, a small town about 15 minutes east of Ocho Rios. The was hardly anyone staying when I visited and I had the pool and private beach to myself most of the time there. I was upgraded to a deluxe suite, much to my surprise upon checking in - without even asking for one! The AC worked well, and the suite was clean, colorful, and updated. (I was in Apt #10, with a sleeping loft) But nothing is perfect, and there were a couple of cons. The bed linens as well as the towels left something to be desired. The security is supposed to be 24 hrs, though at one point I came back to the hotel at 11:00 pm and the gates were wide open with no security guard in sight. (Though he wasn't too far, I was able to find him in about 10 minutes). Also, make sure you set up your return ride to the airport when you get there...and confirm the time frequently. I was supposed to be picked up at 1:00, but found out at 11:30 that this was not the case, and I needed to be ready by 12:00. But other than those couple of minor inconveniences, which are bound to happen wherever you go, I really had a fabulous time. I would definitely return to Chrissans and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!

Simple but spacious bedroom with a great balcony. Very clean and the landlady is very nice and helpful but not pushy. Safe nabourhood and I don't know who those people are who's saying it's far away from everything. If you can't walk 5-10 min to get to town and the beach, why bother going anywhere at all. Only minus is that there was no hot water in the shower. I hade a great stay!

The villa is very well kept and the view is lovely as it is surrounded by the beuatiful greenery and hotel RIU. The villa was also located on the grounds which is also well kept and the swimming pool feature is a lovely touch that was nice to utlise at leisure. It was also nice to have the luxury of utilising the beach that is only a few mintes walk away from the villa.
I would most definatrly recommend it and would certainly consider returning in future! We definately enjoyed our stay at Patiently Waiting.
I also felt that it was a secure environment in which I felt safe.
