Very nice private setting

Posted Mar 6, 2015
Pros: Clean room - good local breakfast - peaceful setting
Cons: shower hardware should be less complicated
Location: Setting is excellent - small, private hotel.
We will give them a second chance - but 1st visit - no tv remote, ac remote broken, very complicated shower to operate, but once you get the hang of it it's fine. Breakfast was great. Ours was a scheduled one night layover visit, but next time we'll make it a longer stay since the atmosphere was very peaceful. Looks like good security.

Nice hotel but out of the way

Posted Jan 9, 2015 on Hotels.com
Great little hotel but out of the way so great for a quiet retreat. Nice people, nicely manicured lawns; small pool. Breakfast was included and great local food. Lunch / dinner on your own. Main issue is that the villa is out of the way so challenging to get a transfer from the airport; also 20 minutes uphill/downhill walk to a nice private beach. No sidewalk and scary traffic so better take a taxi and costs anywhere from $3-$5 to get to the beach one way. If you have a car, it may work well.

Quick birthday get away.

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: Everything see my other comments
Cons: a hot tub or bigger pool
Location: beach a short car ride, sightseeing 15-30 minute car ride either direction.
The hotel was off the main strip of road so really quiet. The staffs at the villa are excellent, really accommodating and had really nice insight into the local area, between them and trip advisor we had everything covered. We rented a car to get around sense we knew the Villa weren’t a big resort. We have been to Jamaica on several trip but stay mostly at the all-inclusive resort so this was a big charge. Let me just say the rules of the road are suggestion in Jamaica. The Villa did not disappoint from the traditional Jamaica breakfast to the balcony overlooking the pool, the grounds were beautifully maintain and it seem like the staff were always busy keeping it clean. But no so much that they were in the way, I hardly saw them but knew they spent a lot of time making sure things were nice. . Security was great with 24 hour guard on duty to patrol the property and to make sure the cars were safe. My wife and I felt really safe as if we were in any upscale neighborhood in the states. If you looking for a nice place that quiet not expensive and you want to connect with your significant other you will really like this place. We plan on going back sometime this coming year just to unwind.

Wonderful staff, ok accommodations

The Villa Sonate was a good place to staff for the few days I stayed there. The staff were amazing!! However, it was really quiet and less posh than expected.

Nice stay in Runaway Bay

Posted Aug 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed here while visiting some different locations in the Runaway Bay area. Staff was very inviting and accommodating, making the stay enjoyable. The included breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The location of the hotel is the only setback. Quite a way from the highway and the roads leading to it are not in good shape, yet authentically Jamaican. We had a rental car and we were always able to park in their gated lot without issue. We'll stay here again without hesitation.

Nice private hotel near Ocho Rios. The staff make you feel like you are a part of their family. Andre and Michelle at the front desk are great. I was traveling alone and didnt feel at all scared or lonely!!!

Nice and comfortable

Posted Jun 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed 1 night at the Villa Sonate and really enjoyed my stay. The staff was extremely pleasant and friendly- even the security guard at the gate was nice. The Checked in process was quick and the front desk clerk actually went out of his way to give me accurate directions to locate the hotel. The breakfast was really nice. My only regret was that the beach is a small distance away.
