What an awesome hotel! The villas are beautifully done. It's ideal for a relaxing island get away. The food is great (just wish the restaurant staff were a bit more attentive). The front desk staff go the extra mile. I'll be back...with lots of books to read in the hammocks!

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!

Awesome rooms with balcony seaside view and great customer service. The breakfast was awesome the local scene is around the corner. The kids loved the privacy of the location. Very private and not over crowded with tourist. Rooms were clean and running hot hot water. Perfect for reading, writing, thinking and photography. An artist's oasis.

When I arrived I was greeted by friendly smiling faces, and the front desk attendant was amazing and informative. The room was clean and safe. There was a full kitchen with a fridge. Flat screen TVs in the living room and bed room. The beach was just a short walk away. My room was a ocean view suite. I will stay again.

Our family of four stayed 3 nights. Room was spacious with high ceilings. Location puts you in the middle of Ocho Rios with short walks to restaurants, stores and beaches so more urban feel. Hotel staff was very friendly. Enjoyed simple hearty breakfast of toast, eggs, juice every morning.
