We spent 10 days in Morning Glory and it was truly a very nice experience.
The houses are just great, situated in a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing garden, with big rooms, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms and basic kitchen equipment. The outside dining-area is very nice for breakfast or dinner at home. The athmospere is really nice "Jamaican" with soft colours, palmtrees and lots of flowers in beatiful colours.
Margaret is cleaning the rooms very neatly every days and, at an extra charge, she cooks wonderful Jamaican food to enjoy in your own garden - chicken, lobster, local fruits or whatever you buy she turns into a Jamaican speciality. A lovely experience!
Morning Glory is a very short walk to the beach, and the nice Mammee Bay Beach club, where you may use the sunbeds for free. The sea is so clear, wonderful for swimming, and you can go for a very nice snorkelling-trip just 10 minutes away. The beach bar offers nice cold drinks, small snacks or you may enjoy a romantic dinner on the beach, under the stars, in the evening. The beach was however a little crowdy some days when the big cruise-ships arrived to Ocho Rios with many day-visitors.
We rented a car and made many small trips around lovely Portland, from riverdrafting on Rio Grande to James Bond beach. But nearby are also famous "tourists attractions" such as the waterfalls, dolphin cove, Ocho Rios etc. This part of norhern Jamaica is very green and beautiful and we experienced people to be very friendly.
It is so nice to be in a home and feel that you are welcome! The hosts, Claude and Geraldine, were very amicable and helpful whenever you needed an advice or help. And if there was something that needed to be fixed, Boston was always around to help you.
Morning Glory is a very nice place for a Jamaican holiday which we could truly recommend!
