Went in early June which is the off season so the hotel was not completely full but they still had a full staff that provided the best customer experience we have experienced. We would go back just to see the many friends we made in the short time we were there.
As for the actual hotel and amenities, it was just what we were looking for. Beautiful private beach with all the water boats and toys at your disposal. Always people to serve you drinks and food or take you out on the water. At night it was a quiet atmosphere with a little live music to enjoy dinner and drinks afterward.
Also, the city of Ocho Rios has several beautiful places to see and a little bit of a nightlife. Riley Tours was awesome and took us all around town. Overall, best resort we have stayed at in a perfect location.

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!

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!

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.
