Well what a pleasant surprise. A hidden jewel.

Posted Sep 3, 2016
Pros: Everything. It was like home.
Cons: Ready transportation to beach or into towns in the area. Reasonably priced.
Location: Location was good and there were things to do once you got back to the main road.
On the island to celebrate mothers' 85 birthday. We set up stay for 6 of our family and friends. Pleasant surprise. The breakfast was fantastic and the dinners was just what we were missing. We made out better than going to one of the bigger resorts. We will be back!

Cozy hideaway, close to beach & places of interes

Posted Jan 22, 2016
Pros: The cleanliness and the warm personalities
Cons: The hot water went for a brief moment. Not sure what can be done there since It's very possible that it happened at a time when everyone was using it.
Location: Location was great, the Cardiff Beach was across the street. Golfing was next door. Also took in an reggae event only a few miles east.
What a find! One of the nicest, friendliest staff we've ever encountered. The owner Sonia, even came by and greeted everyone in the vicinity. Room was comfortable, roomy, clean. Many places to relax and enjoy the ambiance. Oh so picturesque, nestled in such lush tropical landscaping. Will definitely go there again

A True Gem

Posted Dec 22, 2015 on Hotels
Each December my family gets together at an all-inclusive resort for the Holiday but we always choose a small hotel to spend a night each yearso we can check it out. We chose Villa Sonate this trip after seeing some great reviews. Rest assured you will not be disappointed. Upon arrival i was connecting with all the great things previous reviews mentioned. Front desk Crew, security, kitchen staff and everyone was just awesome and willing to assist you with anything necessary to make your stay enjoyable. My family is already making plans to go back.

I spent the weekend with my boyfriend there a couple weeks ago. The hotel room was very clean the staff was very polite and welcoming. They were very accommodating and helped provide everything I asked for. My only concern was that the wifi was harder to pick up in the actual room but overall we enjoyed out stay!

Our provider did a merger a few months ago and are having some difficulties. We hope that they too will correct the situation at the earliest. Thank you for your comments and we look forward to pampering you again. Sonia

Excellent Villa - highly recommend

Posted Sep 28, 2015 on Hotels
We thoroughly ENJOYED our stay. We will definitely stay here again. Rooms and grounds were very clean, Very peaceful and quiet. The Breakfast was excellent. Very well secured with 24hr security visible on grounds at all times. Front desk associate most courteous and professional. We would highly recommend to others. Location was a bit of an off road drive but very accessible especially with car.

Love this place

Posted Jun 26, 2015 on Hotels
Wonderful place to stay, this is my second time staying at this villa and there will be a third on my next trip to Jamaica. The staff members are very responsive to your needs, if you need real Jamaican food, this is the place to dine at. The rooms are very comfortable, there needs to be improvement in cleansiness, but overall this this villa beats out the all inclusive hotels by a distance. See you again next year

Dear Valued Guest, I must humbly apologize to you for not getting the remote for the television, it should have been given to you at check-in. I have spoken to my front office staff and is sure this will never recur. Some of our rooms carry a unique shower system, we ask our check-in agent to give a demonstration to our valued guest upon arrival to their rooms. With regards to the noise from other rooms, we are sorry, however, we have since asked our security to speak to those guest should there be a recurrence. So sorry about the rain, we can only wish for better climate. We have since made a significant change with our internet provider and the WiFi is working perfectly. We must thank you for your comments as this gives us the opportunity to make the necessary corrections and improve our property so our Guests will have the comfort, happiness and relaxation they well deserve. It was our greatest pleasure in hosting you and look forward to your continued business. Warmest regards,

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.
