“Pure bliss!”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

A group of 12 of us stayed in Pineapple Villa in March and it was the most relaxing trip we could have ever asked for. The cottage is so big with 2 levels of outside seating that we never felt crowded. And having staff to cook authentic Jamaican meals for you, do all the grocery shopping, clean up after you, do your laundry daily is a luxury that you have to experience to believe.

Al is a new addition to the villa and he's a keeper! Not only is he an amazing cook, but he appointed himself as the kids' buddy and kept them so entertained every evening at times we felt we were on an adult-only trip. They already miss him and hope he comes to visit us if he's ever in the states.

Gwendolyn and Angie were also outstanding cooks and our kids will never be the same after having Gwennie's pancakes. Andy is also a huge help and he and Al tried to teach my son a thing or two in the kitchen. Hope it sunk in!

The water pressure would be a complaint, but with 12 people sometimes overlapping in showers, it's not that surprising, nor is it a deal-breaker as far as I'm concerned. The kids were disappointed that the hot tub seemed to quit on us halfway through the trip and never was repaired. I'm not sure what the problem was there. But, again, those were the only inconveniences in our entire stay.

Make sure to have Bobby (McGibbon, I think) as your driver. We was our roundtrip driver to/from airport and we also hired him to take us on a few excursions. We got more than we bargained for as he gave us history and an education along the way that was very interesting. He would also stop and surprise the kids with a bag of Jamaican apples (shaped like pears) to try, and also sugar cane that we watched the men cut from rods! We also kept him out very late, but he was very reasonable with the cost.

Silver Sands is paradise for families or large groups who want to feel safe and even a part of the community. The beach is wonderful with plenty of chairs and palapas and the life guards take their job seriously. It's also worth it to wander off the property right next door to visit the merchants and have a beer at Leroy's. They also have live music on Saturday nights that we wanted to go to, but were enjoying star gazing and having cocktails on our upper deck too much to leave.

I could go on and on, but it's hard to mention everything that makes this place paradise. This was our second time to Silver Sands and I'm certain it won't be our last.

“BEST family vacation ever!!!”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Pineapple Villa is the perfect house for myself, my four children, their "significant others", and three granddaughters (ages 2, 4, and 6). The floor plan is ideal and every room is extremely comfortable, meeting all our family needs. Gwennie, Angie, and Andy went above and beyond to make this my most favorite vacation ever. They knew what we wanted or needed before we did! They were so kind and patient with the little girls. The house is kept in immaculate shape, inside and out, and our meals were so delicious. Gwennie introduced us to several Jamaican foods (the 4 year old love the curried goat) but our favorite was her chicken dinner! We divided our time between the pool and the beach which is close enough for the 2 year old to walk. We truly spent a week in paradise and can't wait to return!
Finally, thank you Peggy for all your help as well as your communications with me. Arranging a family vacation for 12 was stress-free with your help.

“A week in paradise”

My family spent a glorious week in paradise at Pineapple Villa in Silver Sands, Trelawny. From the moment we arrived to the day we left, it was absolutely marvelous. Prior to our arrival I spoke with Peggy Chin, the owner several times. I outlined what I wanted my stay to be like and she assured me all my needs would be met. This was a special vacation as it were because I was celebrating my 50th birthday.
The location for my function was perfect; the layout of the villa is fantastic for large groups. It provides privacy within the confines of the unit but it allows for close interaction as well. The villa has all the comforts of home and more. The most important quality about the villa however, cannot be put into mere words. From the moment we arrived, the staffs made us feel welcome; after only a brief conversation they made us feel as though we had known them for years.
The food was out of this world; every meal they prepared challenged the next for greatness. It was as though it was a competition and the guests were the judges. My family could not stop eating; every course seemed better than the last, yet it would have been difficult to choose one over the other.
For my party the staff of Pineapple Villa and the staff of Dukes Villa came together and did a fantastic job; the evening was simply perfect. All my guests were thoroughly impressed with the meal and the overall service. Miss Angela and her staff are truly deserving of all the accolades. I would definitely return to Pineapple Villa to spend another week in paradise.

“Our 8th consecutive trip to Pineapple Villa”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Like some fine wines, year after year after year this visit to Peggy's villa is so much looked forward to. First and foremost we get to greet and hug our dear friends, Gwenny, Angela and Pinkey as well as meet newer staff members Rose, Sally and Andy. This staff does a first class job in making our stay enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing. The daily cleaning of the villa, the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff are what make this a most enjoyable trip. The annual improvements and additions to the villa certainly do not go unnoticed and are a testament to Mrs. Wall's commitment to making her guests stay such a delight. Whether it's sunning on the patio or by the pool, soothing in the hot tub, floating in the pool, enjoying the panoramic view and that beautiful sea our group so looks forward to our annual trip. Thank you Peggy for allowing us the opportunity to visit you villa and be cared for by such a wonderful staff.
