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 can not rave enough about this hotel. I loved the service, the food, and the atmosphere. The only complaint I have is that the toilet was running all night long on our last night there. Also a small section of the bathroom was leaking but maintenance came quickly and fixed the problem. We ate at every restaurant on the property but my favorite by far was Moonstone. It was romantic and the food was excellent. When getting drinks ask for top shelf. I esp. liked the drunken banana, yummy! I would go back every year to this same hotel. I was so sad to come back home.

Stayed here for a couples weekend getaway and absolutely enjoyed it.The hotel is right off of Main St. next to shopping and restaurants. Located right off the coast of the Caribbean Sea, we had to perfect ocean view from our room. The hotel staff was pleasant and courteous. A peaceful and quiet place kind of tucked away from all the noise of Main St. The free breakfast was the cherry on top of an already pleasant experience. The restaurant staff served an excellent breakfast. The dumplings were great. I will definitely return on my next trip.

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.

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!
