SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS' ideal location is a privately-nestled cove between two of Jamaica’s most prestigious hotels: Royal Plantation 5-star boutique hotel and the legendary Jamaica Inn. While completely private, Scotch on the Rocks is just minutes from lively Ocho Rios.

Scotchie, as it is affectionately called, was originally built by the late Scottish Lord, The Earl of Mansfield. Today it is owned by members of the Red Stripe Beer family. Present owners have extensively renovated the home with concentration on accommodating families. Victorian fretwork and warm mahogany floors are original, while Italian Travertine reflects recent renovations. Interior design is a tasteful eclectic mix of high-tech amenities combined with Jamaican and English antiques.

The iconic gathering place is the large furnished verandah overlooking the vast expanse of deep blue Caribbean Sea that is Scotchie's "front yard." Sitting here genuinely feels like lounging on the deck of a ship with nothing in sight but blue sea and sky.  It's heaven.

Stone steps lead from the main house down a slope to a private cove and fabulous crystal clear cove, wonderful for swimming, floating, snorkeling and kayaking. Beside the waterfront deck is an outdoor shower. The gardener will place chaises on the seaside deck and the butler will serve lunch there if you wish to stay on the waterfront all day.

Scotchie’s wonderful cook and butler merit special mention. Mealtimes here are memorable thanks to Cherie’s wonderful cooking and Bryan’s excellent service.

Reviews

  • Best Family Vacation.

    Scotchie was one of the best vacation experience I’ve ever had, my family loved it as well. We can’t stop raving about the staff at the Villa, they were tremendous, and made us feel right at home. Their hospitality was among the best, I’ve ever received. And Miss Cherry’s and Elvis’ cooking, off the charts, we were so gleefully excited for every meal.

    This was my first experience booking a Villa, based on a friend's recommendation. And he was totally right in saying, the Villa is the only way to go if you've got a young family. We had kids aged 6 months to 11 years, and they all had the time of their lives. As parents, we were able to tuck the youngster away at night, and still have the ability partake in adult entertainment, while feeling secure that our children were all sleep in their rooms. Something that cannot be done at a resort.

    The Staff at the Villa: Elvis, Bryan, Cherri, Pat and Richard. They are some of the more genuine, nicest courtesy people, I've ever meet. They want to make sure your stay is top notch, and they will go above and beyond to make that happen. Although, my family would like to try other Villas, the staff is making it hard to ignore the fact, that we may not be so lucky, with that staff, at the other villas.

    The Villa itself, was as advertised, upkeep was impeccable, and amenities were great as well. There is a lot to do, from Paddle boarding, Kayaking, Snorkeling. the pool is great for kids, and adults can supervise from several locations, which makes it incredibly convenient.

    Overall, I cannot say enough about the staff at this Villa, they are tremendous, and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for some of the best authentic Jamaican cooking, and some of the best hospitality in the world.
