We have lived in 3 places in Jamaica but when we go back now we always stay at Rio Vista. It is quiet and the most beautiful scenery no matter which way you look. The Rio Grande provides scenes of rafters coming down the river and looking the other way you see the unstoppable sea. Sharon Miller and her workers...

We stayed here over New Years Eve as we wanted to be close to Port Antonio but our preferred places were already booked. The view of Rio Grande is beautiful and a wonderful way to start the day. The room was comfortable and the hotel team were very helpful. If it was possible I'd give this place 3.5*. The location...

Spent 5 nights at Rio Vista. Here is a summary of our stay Rooms - great! Lots of character, clean and spacious. TV is difficult to figure out, but we are not big TV watchers, so not really a hassle. The down side of the rooms is that they face the main road and the traffic can be a problem...

There was air conditioning which was highly preferable for me since we were staying in the summer. The room we stayed in had a bed, TV (with cable channels in English), and a bathroom that...

I absolutely loved this place. The villas are so cute. There is the Rio Grande river on one side and a view of the sea on the other. We had breakfast on the patio by the pool overlooking the river every morning. Stunning. In the evenings we watched the sun set over the ocean. Fantastic. The staff were efficient and...

Spent 2 nights this past weekend and great location, great staff. The view for Breakfast overlooking the Rio Grande is always spectacular and food was very good. Safe environment and not too far from the town, beaches. I would like to thank Andrea, Mrs. Miller and Novelette for taking very good care of us.

What a beautiful gem! We stayed in Amore Villa, and couldn't get enough of the view of the Rio Grande from the balcony. The bed was comfortable, and the room clean. The staff was very helpful setting up activities, and the view sitting under the gazebo for breakfast can't be beat! The villa had all the necessities, including a kitchenette....
