A perfect holiday location!
This gorgeous beachfront villa on Runaway Bay, Jamaica was a perfect get-away for our large family gathering. It was nothing short of amazing. Our extended family of 13, including 5 young children had a most wonderful week. The villa is tastefully decorated, impeccably clean and is surprisingly large and easily accommodated us. The grounds are beautifully kept with an abundance of flowering shrubs and plantings surrounding the kidney shaped pool. Pass through the gate and there is the soft, sandy beach and turquoise waters of Runaway Bay. Wayne and Erica, our ever-charming hosts, and coordinators, took care of everything and made sure that our smallest needs were attended to. We felt truly spoiled. The staff was kind, friendly, attentive and took pride in their work. The meals were home cooked, delicious, beautifully presented and included kid-friendly options. We especially enjoyed eating many of them outdoors. This was a vacation that none of us will soon forget.
Added features: our snorkelers loved the coral reef, which is a short swim from the beach. Our scuba divers took a dive boat to the underwater canyon and sunken ship. We did a walking tour into the surrounding hills and a day trip to Blue Hole. There was fun for all.

Everything you could hope for!
I can safely say that no one in my family of 11 was disappointed. Erica and Wayne have created a magical place filled with magical helpers. The house is clean and comfortable. The outdoor space is perfect, even on rainy days. But the most important factor is the level of service their staff provide. For a few brief days, I felt totally spoiled as did my granddaughters and my 92 year old mom as well as all in between. Chef Fred treated us to authentic gourmet Jamaican food which satisfied all of my foodie kids. Five stars to Sunspot, without a doubt!

We had such a memorable and enjoyable stay at Sun Spot. The house and grounds were gorgeous and the homemade Jamaican meals were far superior to eating at a restaurant. We had three young children and an infant traveling with us and the staff went above and beyond to make sure the kids enjoyed their stay too. Erica and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate picky eaters and helped make the adults’ stay relaxing. I joke that a vacation with kids isn’t really a vacation; however, a week at Sun Spot proved me wrong! It was a restful trip that we hope to repeat next year.
Megan, thank you for choosing Sunspot Villa for your family holidays. And thank you for you wonderful review. We really loved having you as our guest and enjoyed your company, conversations and our special cocktails with great laughter. We eagerly await your next visit, and with fingers cross, lots of sunshine. Erica

Our family spent Christmas week at Sun Spot Villa and everything was perfect. The staff was awesome and the food delicious. Every day we had an amazing fresh juice. Our Christmas dinner was the best we have ever had. The rooms were very comfortable and the villa was right on the beach which was beautiful. The golf club across the street was great; they have hosted the Ryder Cup. Erica was super helpful and arranged for a driver to take us on trips. We expected to have a great time and our expectations were more than exceeded. Sun Spot is great for families, friends, couples...you name it! This is an experience not to be missed. :) Thanks to everyone at Sun Spot Villa for our best Christmas ever!
It was our pleasure to have you family visit Sunspot Villa, and thank you for choosing Sunspot Villa for your family Christmas holiday. We also thank you for your review and the entire staff is most appreciative for the kind words. Your family really adapted very quickly to make the villa their home and it was our pleasure to be around individuals that is warm and friendly. Thanks again for your review and you are always welcome to return.

This was a great vacation and more than what we anticipated. The home and property is exactly as pictured. Loved the new bathrooms and the beds were very comfortable. Erica was very responsive from the start and she exceeded my expectations after our arrival. We always felt safe at this property. A few highlights: Erica arranged daily transportion for my son to a nearby villa, The staff noticed that some of the traditional Caribbean meals were not to our liking and quickly adjusted the menu to include some American foods. The staff was helpful in arranging our activities ( the snorkeling boat picked us up right at the beach). The rooms, home and grounds were extremely clean. The fresh fish dinner was amazing. Fresh juices were wonderful. They took us to buy alcohol (it's cheaper at the airport) and snacks for our stay when we arrived. Tip: make sure you have insect repellent and take it with you on zip line tours. We had one bad experience to note. There was a cluster of orange ants in our bedroom the first night. I had to sleep with my daughters. My husband stayed in room. The groundsman took care of it that morning and we had no more problems. I did not let that impact my rating since they quickly addressed the issue.
Thank you for your very kind words. It was my pleasure having you and your family at the villa
