My girlfriend and I stayed at L'Horizon for a week last June and we both found it to be an ideal place to stay and unwind from the stress of work. The staff catered to our every requirement, making sure that our stay was as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. I would definitely stay at L'Horizon again and I have recommended it to all of my friends.
We went for 1 week September last year and it was FANTASTIC!
The house is beautiful, sweeping staircase, marble floors, high ceiling windows and spacious rooms with your own TV, balcony and ensuite bathroom.
The staff were really amazing, very helpful and friendly and if you're worried about pilling on the pounds ...don't, there's a gym overlooking the pool area and gardens.
Loved watching the sun go down while relaxing on the Jacuzzi, listening to some Reggae vibes and sipping the famous L'Horizon cocktail.
Main sightseeing attractions and Ocho Rios town are a short car journey away.
I would definitely go back, 3 weeks this time!
In 2005, I decided to take my family to Jamaica for Christmas. While researching rental homes, I discovered the gorgeous Villa L'Horizon in Ocho Rios. The pictures attracted my interest, but I was sold by the owner's efficiency and graciousness in preparing to provide the ultimate in customer service. Nothing is overlooked!
This beautiful mansion is immaculately maintained, and is EXACTLY, and I do mean "exactly" as it is shown online. Ours was a party of 11 people and we never wanted for anything! We were treated like royalty by the wonderful staff at the Villa. We even had a chauffeur!
There is so much to do, you only have to ask. They mean it when they say "No Problem".
It was so hard to leave. Some of us cried on our last day. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and we can't wait to return.
In the first week of December 2007 I celebrated my 60th Birthday at L'Horizon. I was joined by 13 of my family members. Everything was perfect. The staff was excellent and felt like an extension of my family. We would return in a heartbeat.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Jamaica and my stay at L'Horizon. It is clean, spacious, safe and private. We (my colleagues and I) were well taken care of by the staff who kept out of sight but where always around the corner when needed. The succulent local food prepared daily was EXCELLENT!!!!!! Hats off to the chef, Miss Kelly. From the ox tail to the roasted breadfruit, we got a true taste of authentic Jamaican home cooking. All the features were there including a large pool, gym, pool table etc. My room had A/C with a flat screen tv on the wall, and was very spacious... with a built -in jacuzzi to boot!! The surroundings were well kept and it was a most comfortable and enjoyable experience! Would definitely go back again and again. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!
What a wonderful vacation!! Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Villa L'Horizon. Everyone had a wonderful experience ranging in age from 3 to 64. The property was well maintained and perfect for our family of 16 to relax and enjoy time together. The staff was exceptional and took care of our every need. The meals were a real treat and gave us a wonderful sample of Jamaican cuisine.
We are so thankful we hired a driver for the week. It afforded us the opportunity to experience the Dunn's River Falls (a must for everyone), as well as shopping, zip-lining, and more.
Our experience at Villa L'Horizon exceeded our expectations. We truly experienced a week of no worries, no problems thanks to such a wonderful staff. From young to old we all wanted to extend our stay. Hopefully we will be able to return real soon.
L'Horizon is a great place to stay, thats why i go there every year. Its home from home which makes me feel comfortable and relaxed.
The rooms are clean and kept in prestine condition. The staff are polite, helpful and friendly, basically everything you could possibly wish for on your vacation to make you feel welcome and at home.
L'Horizon's surrounding is tranquil and i spend most days relaxing by the pool or outdoor jacuzzi, and not least to mention our beautiful white sand private beach, roughly 5mins walk from L'Horizon.
To end my review I had a fun time at L'Horizon with my gran/daughter and will recommend there to anyone visiting the island. I sure will be goin there again next year!
...Second time to Jamaica, first time to L'Horizon and I must say this holiday was better than the first! My departure left me wanting to extend my time on the island.
My Holiday in Jamaica was for three and a half weeks with my six month old, 1st time travelling, so i wanted a home from home setting which L'Horizon offered me. A beautiful villa set in a fantastic location, with fantastic staff who became my extended family for my stay there.
Our room was cleaned daily, which also overlookd the garden with lush flowers n various other tropical plants. The surrounding features i.e swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Tennis Court were easily accessible, oh and also the indoor gym! ;-)
I liked to chill by the poolside on a sunbed listening to my music in comfort, without being disturbed, as you would, in a hotel by other visitors. I also like the private beach not far down the road, food, and the people in Jamaica....One Love!
My stay in Mamee Bay, Ochi Rios was very pleasant. On my future visits to Jamaica, I will stay at L'Horizon and have also recommended there to my friends and family a great place to stay!.
I stayed at L'Horizon with my partner in August, and it was my first trip to Jamaica. The pictures on the site are right -the house and grounds are stunningly beautiful - and even better than they look on the photos. The interior of the house is light and spacious and spotlessly clean. Our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens, and a large bathroom. We particularly enjoyed the poolside area, for sunbathing during the day then floodlit for the evening - perfect for our cocktails and a romantic evening meal, surrounded by the amazing sounds of cicadas chirping in the Jamaican night.
The grounds have all kinds of beautiful flora - gorgeous flowers in bright pinks and reds, lush grass underfoot, high foliage giving excellent privacy. We loved the breadfruit, ackee and mango trees - our excellent cook Sandra made us the famous Jamaican "ackee and saltfish" breakfast with ackee picked straight from the garden. As for the roasted breadfruit, just too delicious for words!
The private beach is a short walk away and has soft, pale gold sand and turquoise waters that are warm and clear and perfect for swimming.
We had a car, and went out and about to explore a bit of Jamaica. The house is well located, and only a short drive away are the famous Dunn's Falls - as any guidebook will tell you, it is the unmissable excurtion to go on. Ocho Rios, again a short drive away, is a pretty town with good local dining. We ventured up along the coast to Port Maria and the scenary was splendid.
We had a wonderful and memorable stay at L'Horizon, and we would go there again. We would highly recommend it to friends and family.
Thank you especially to the charming owner who made us feel so welcome and at home.
I spent a week at l'horizon with friends. We were in Jamaica for another friend's wedding. From start to finish, the experience was absolutely sensational. Sandra, the chef, was the most accommodating and talented lady one could hope for. And the villa is truly luxurious- even the photos here don't do it justice. You have access to the beach 5 minutes walk away and are a short cab ride from Oche proper and the beautiful Dunn's river. L'horizon offers a relaxing and authentic alternative to the generic all-inclusives nearby (although day passes mean you can see the other side pretty easily). I would have no hesitation recommending this place to all and sundry and my only regret was that i had to come home.
