SCOTCH ON THE ROCKS' ideal location is a privately nestled cove between two of Jamaica’s most prestigious hotels: Royal Plantation's 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 a 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.

  • Hi Sharon,
    Sorry it has taken so long. The trip was beyond amazing and Scotchie is now my new favorite. The staff, the food, and the view are to die for. I cried hugging Ms. Patricia when I left. Her smile and genuine warmth always brightened my day. Richard and Elvis were excellent chefs, always adding an extra touch. Akiem was a pleasure to work with. The house and the view from every sitting area, especially the gazebo, are something out of a movie. It was an unbelievable delight to wake up to each morning. I would definitely stay again. It was exactly what I needed. :)

    -Saunders Party

  • The property is awesome, beautiful, and the chefs and service here 10x better. The FOOD - I told Elvis and Richard, I’m taking them home with me and Akeem ( might be spelled wrong), kind, and truly has been so gracious and fun to work with.

    Exceptional food with many more options, fresh, and all prepared so well.

    I might have to do this every year. I love this villa!

    -Pamela Party

  • 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.

  • We had a fabulous time at the villa, everything was perfect. Many thanks!

    June L

  • Sincerely, our experience from top to bottom was superior, including your services and all the upfront work. When we have the opportunity, we will definitely work with you again.

    The property and staff at Scotch on the Rocks are unreal. We had a terrific time.

    Rich S

  • The villa was excellent and the service was exceptional. The villa was clean, the staff were some of the best I have encountered and the food was exceptional. There is nothing that could have gone any better.

    Oliver H.

  • Everything was fabulous! What made it more special was the staff. Tremendous people.
    We would definitely go back.

    -Jeff H Party

  • I wanted to take this time to THANK YOU all for making our vacation amazing!!! The home, the staff, the site and the entire experience was wonderful! Wendy and I can’t thank you enough and want to express the same!!! Just wanted to say thanks again and make sure EVERYONE HEARD IT!!! We will be using your services again, and will be in touch. But please pass on to Owners how wonderful EVERYTHING was. Bryan, Elvis, Richard and Pat made us feel loved and at home!

    Special place!!!
    Thanks

    Gary
