About Sonia Barnes
My husband Wesley and I are Jamaicans by birth. We have lived in the United States for the past 4 decades and currently reside in the great state of Georgia. We love Jamaica and are proud to be able to share a part of our home country with our guests.
Sonia Barnes purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Sonia Barnes chose Ocho Rios
We have long ties to Ocho Rios. Wesley Spent many summers here as a child with his grand-aunt who lived in Bucksfield. My sister was a long time owner at Carib so we spent many vacations here and it is still as beautiful now as it was then.

The view is amazing.....
This is my first time staying at Carib but it definitely will not be my last. The condo was clean and well maintained. The location is centrally located and within walking distance to the beach, the open market, church and my favorite place to dine, Miss T's Kitchen. I had my best pedicure ever at Le' Mer Day Spa, and please ask for "Peaches". My husband and I were able to mingle with the locals and met some amazing people.Shopping in the open market was one of my favorite pastimes, please visit and go to the back on Thursdays and Fridays and meet Mr and Mrs Thompson who sell fresh coconut water (take your own container)and the twins who sell pineapple and papaya.The pudding man is a must, get a taxi to take you to Priory and buy cornmeal pudding and salt fish fritters and conch fritters. We even met the owners of our condo who offered there assistance and shared their favorite restaurants and recipes. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We will be back next year.
thanks for your review, we look forward to your visit next year, we will be happy to accomodate you.
Best deal in Ocho Rios
Property was great. Everything you need is there. Great view. Quiet area. Close to everything. Safe. Clean. You can't ask for more at such a great price. I would stay there again for sure.
Property is well maintained and the condos are close to downtown. The area surrounding will also yield closeby places if you want to have lunch or breakfast or if you want to see crafts. Everyone at the Condos here is very nice. Dawn the housekeeper was a gem and she made sure everything was up to par and even did us the favor of calling us a taxi for the morning we left.
Can't begin with how valuable it was to have the beach so close!! Wonderful.
Cons: low water pressure in shower, warm in property as the air conditioner will not reach all the areas.
Pros: Sitting out in the little terrace, air conditioner that is awesome in the bedroom.
Great stay at a great rental!
Loved the condo and I was right on the ocean! It was a lovely little place though not a luxury place if that's what you're after. I felt very at home and because it was the slow season, there was almost no one around! I'm not a real touristy type so I really enjoyed that.
Dawn was a wonderful lady with a fantastic and disarming smile! She did an outstanding job of caring for the place and was very helpful. Make sure you treat her well!
The only problem I had was that they're totally anal about smoking there and I LOVE smoking. There are signs all over the place warning people not to use ganja or smoke anywhere. I thought that was ridiculous and wish it had been mentioned to me before I stayed there. The ad said "no smoking" as do almost all rentals there but I assumed that it was inside the place that we couldn't smoke which I never smoke inside anyways especially in Jamaica. I think that should be mentioned in the ad.
There was 24 hour security and they were very pleasant and respectful as are most Jamaicans. It was a place you feel safe if that's what you're after. Great location and a gorgeous view of the ocean although the beach wasn't very long if you want to take a run on the beach. I did some snorkeling along the coast and this is a perfect place to snorkel! There are groups of young Jamaican guys who snorkel fish with homemade dart guns and they even go all night with their underwater flashlights! That was pretty cool and they showed me how to snorkel.
I would stay here again but only in the slow season as I hate being around busy tourist places. I don't know if it was because of the slow season but the rates were very reasonable and Sonia was wonderful to deal with.
Dear George, thank you for staying at my condo and for your review. Please come back when your travel plans allow.
Loved it. Clean, affordable, quiet, very walkable. Dawn was great - very accommodating and made us feel comfortable. Thanks Dawn!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Jamaica and at my condo. Please come back again.
I've stayed at this property previously in a different unit. I love the little beach which you pretty much have to yourself. It has a great view. Also it is a close walk to several grocery stores and restaurants. The only recommendation I have is to supply beach towels. We went and bought out own but didn't really have room to bring them home. Dawn was great, came by every couple days to see if we needed anything and also gave us a hair dryer to borrow. I would stay here again and pray for some sun this time.
Hi Leah thank you again for staying at my condo and for your review. Please know that your comments are important to me and will be used to enhance your future experience.
Property is located in Ocho Rios within walking distance of downtown. Visit the local crafts market, get wet at famous Dunn's River fall; swim with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove. or just enjoy a peaceful, sun-filled day at our own Mahogany Beach. At night go clubbing to Margaritaville, or enjoy an elegant evening dining at Evita's Italian restaurant overlooking the town
