An earthly paradise!

There is only one word that describes Golden Clouds – Paradise! Waking up in the morning and seeing the huge expanse of blue water was breathtaking. It has every recreational activity you can imagine including tennis, basketball and a fully equipped gym, beautiful beach and two (yes two) swimming pools. Plus, having your own in-house chef (the lovely Ms. Blossom) preparing delicious meals and a full staff at your beck and call is a recipe for the perfect vacation. Golden Clouds has all the amenities you could possibly need including a large park-like setting with gardens and a playground. The bedrooms were fabulous and the bathrooms were a nice size and clean. The property itself is immaculate - it has all the comforts of home and much, much, more. Describing our week at Golden Clouds is almost hard to do. Amazing, relaxing, scenic - these words don't seem quite enough. We spent seven days in the most beautiful place in the world, swam and snorkeled on our own private reef, explored the most picturesque island we'd ever visited and met the warmest, friendliest people we could ever have imagined. We've all done a fair amount of traveling, and agree that this vacation was at the top of our lists. Hope to return again someday, as I'm now officially in love with Golden Clouds.

Our extended family of 16 adults and three children stayed at Golden Clouds for a week and we were extremely pleased with everything about this private resort. All the other reviews are correct, it is a fantastic place to stay and the staff are the best anywhere in the Caribbean, if not the world.

We had an all-inclusive package and everything was taken care of – from the airport transfers to all of the meals, tips, and taxes so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. We had a van and driver for the week as part of the package, and it came in very handy for our excursions to Dunns River Falls and to the Firefly museum. Of course, we spent as much time as possible enjoying Golden Clouds and made great use of the beach, swimming pools, gym and tennis court, but it was nice to go on a few trips as well since some of our family had never been to Jamaica before.

My son, who is 14, really loved snorkelling in the sea and he spent a lot of time exploring the reef while I lounged on the beach with a good book. The staff couldn't possibly have have been nicer and responded to our every request including constant requests by the children for root beer floats with a warm smile. Kenneth was terrific with the kids and although the property is very safe, he always kept a watchful eye on them when they were near the beach or the pool.

It is impossible to imagine a better place for a family reunion. Golden Clouds is like no place on earth and we will be coming back again soon!

Restaurants and Bars:
Wonderful meals

Beautiful beach, Two swimming pools

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Tennis, Shuffleboard, basketball, gymnasium,

Other Comments:

I just got back home from having my wedding at Golden Clouds Villa. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. We could not have dreamed of a better place for our special day. Everything about Golden Clouds is amazing. The property is beautiful and the staff are fantastic. They exceeding our expectations and Norma, the wedding coordinator, did a stellar job from start to finish. She went over every detail of the wedding in advance and was very helpful in working within our budget – we wanted a beautiful wedding but were still on a budget. We needed accommodations for 20 people at the villa for a week, plus there were another 20 people who required accommodation nearby for 4 days. They managed to provide us with a very affordable wedding package with 5-star service and décor.

One of the most difficult decisions I had to make was where to have the wedding on the property. The villa is huge with a very large lawn, beautiful beach, and tropical gardens. With a choice of beach, terrace, or garden, it was almost overwhelming to choose one of these beautiful locations. We ended up choosing the beach for the wedding and the lawn for a champaign toast afterwards. We got married on the beach at sunset and it was an incredible experience.

The dinner and reception were held in the west wing of the villa. There were 20 guests for the dinner in addition to the 20 of us who were staying for the week. So, we had 40 people for the wedding celebration and it was an incredible evening of food, music, and dancing.

My family and friends are saying they are spoiled for life and want to go back next year. Many are saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We can’t wait to go back to this magical place for our anniversary. To all the brides out there considering this location for your wedding I would tell you to not have any hesitation at all. The staff here will do everything they can to make your dream day special. It is truly a magical place and a fantastic location for a wedding.

"Ideal location for a destination wedding"

We just had our wedding at Golden Clouds, and it was the most perfect wedding I could have ever imagined. It is a magical place to get married, and the staff are the greatest. There were 20 of us staying at Golden Clouds for a week and it was the ideal combination of a vacation and wedding. The wedding service was quite formal and elegant, and it was in a beautiful tropical setting with gorgeous flowers and plants everywhere. The food throughout the week was fantastic and the staff couldn’t have been more courteous and professional. There were four children that were part of our group and they loved every minute of their time at Golden Clouds. The property is like a huge gated park with every type of exercise and recreation equipment that you can imagine. With a large beach, two swimming pools, tennis court, basketball, and gymnasium, there was never a dull moment.

To have our wedding in such a beautiful place was a dream come true. We had a terrific wedding coordinator who looked after everything from the flowers to the music, and so we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings right up to the wedding. My bridesmaids and I had a nice relaxing massage the morning of the wedding while the guys went out for a game of golf. At sunset, we had the wedding on the beach and it was a truly magical experience. After a wonderful dinner, we danced all night to a local band that the wedding coordinator had booked for us.

Having been a bridesmaid too many times, I was quite certain that I wanted a destination wedding. I always liked the idea of spending a week with 20 of our closest friends and family instead of spending the same amount of money for a single day for 200 mostly strangers. If you are considering a destination wedding, I highly recommend Golden Clouds.

9 bedrooms

Beautiful beach
Two swimming pools
6-acres of beautiful gardens

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Modern exercise room, tennis, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, games room
