Fortland’s Point: a 7- bedroom heaven for families

I had the privilege of staying at Fortland’s Point, a 7-bedroom villa located on Jamaica’s northern Discovery Bay.  We visited Fortland’s Point with our extended family, including four children ranging in ages from 9 months to 6 years. We found it to be an ideal villa for an intergenerational holiday. The house layout (bedrooms and living areas),  grounds, activities, and staff combined to create a most relaxing experience for groups with small children. It was like having a small resort all to yourself. I can’t imagine a better property for enjoying a truly relaxing experience with small children.

Fortland’s Point stands on a truly exceptional property.  It occupies three acres at the end of a peninsula.  There are three small private beach areas, one of which is ideal for younger kids and swimming.   The largest beach surrounds a cove, which is perfect for splashing or having cocktails from the floating bar.  The sunsets from the property are gorgeous.  Almost every evening we would retreat to the very tip of the property where there is a patio and lounge chairs to enjoy happy hour while watching the sun go down.   For the kids there is a small swingset/slide, a huge grassy yard complete with football/soccer goals, cannons to climb, board games, and of course the pool and the beach.

I personally left Fortland’s Point only once to explore the nearby coastline. Despite 11 days on property there was always plenty to do… fantastic snorkeling with active reefs just off the beach, paddleboarding, kayaking, swimming in the pool.  In a separate building there is a gym with an indoor racquetball court for those inclined to work out or for kids needing a more contained place to play.  We hired an amazing yoga instructor, who was recommended by the property manager, to give us private yoga classes in the beach pavilion. Having everything right on site meant I enjoyed the activities while my small children napped.

For others that wanted to leave the property, hiring a driver for the week allowed people to go to nearby markets and activities in Ocho Rios.   Golf is also available a short drive away at the nearby Sandals resort.   However, there did not seem to be as many options for excursions as offered by other Jamaican resorts.

The staff was extremely accommodating and great with our kids. I would also consider the villa to be handicapped accessible, with one bedroom accessible by wheelchair (not sure about the bath).   There are also ramps that would allow someone who had mobility issues to access the ground floor and pool.  I am pretty sure that if you were in a wheelchair you could be wheeled out to the point where there is a terrace so that you could join in for cocktails and sunset views.

There is a house dog, which we hardly noticed at all. One kid accidentally stepped on it and the dog just moved further under the couch. While family-friendly was key for me, we also had young, childless couples as part of our group, who also had a wonderful time. The house and property are large enough to “escape” without actually leaving the grounds.

The interior is decorated in traditional tropical style – lots of palm prints and rattan.   The master suite is spacious and is next to the TV room/den.   We often put our toddler in that area to sleep.  There is a big couch, flat screen TV, and board games.  The lower, wheelchair-accessible bedroom is also quite large.  There is one small room on the top floor with trundle beds and bunks that is designed for kids.  All of the other bedrooms are adequately sized.  The East Ocean View Room has its own private balcony as well.

Although the villa is not part of a resort complex, we felt secure.  There are tall electronic gates surrounding the property and the staff is on site 24-hours a day.  Additionally,  there are safes in bedrooms and the bedroom areas are gated at night.

Features that really exceeded our expectations were the quality of the snorkeling, the quality of the private beach (small, but picturesque & lovely), and the amazing private yoga instructor. There are also a variety of places to dine on the property.  We ate in five different locations… two indoors and three outdoors.

I would highly recommend this villa for parties that have children and would love to go back.   I think that if the youngest in the group are older teens or it is all adults you may want more adventure and excursion options.     But I believe the quality of the water sports and snorkeling could keep most teens as well as adults happy.

It is about a 3-hour drive from the Kingston airport and an 1-hour drive from Montego Bay.   Rates for Fortland’s Point vary from $2,000 – $4,430/night depending upon the seasons and the number of bedrooms rented.    The villa can accommodate up to 14, although I think you could probably add a couple more kids below 5 or 6 years old upon request.

Downsides to the villa were few.  Some items featured in the pictures (hammocks, gym equipment) were not available.  Additionally, while the meals were good, they were not gourmet, possibly because of the distance from quality markets (confession:  my standards for gourmet are high).   Finally, the pools/beaches are not closed off, so it is necessary to watch young children very carefully.

To summarize, I would highly recommend this villa for parties that have children.  If your group consists of older teens or of all adults, you might want to consider a villa that offers more opportunities for adventure and excursions.  Nevertheless, I believe that the quality of the water sports and snorkeling could keep most teens as well as adults happy.

You can inquire about the villa through their website, www.fortlandspointjamaicavilla.com .   It is also available through Villas by Linda Smith  (www.jamaicavillas.com), a villa agent I have used several times and recommend.

    One thing I have actually noticed is always that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the banking institutions intentions if talking about property foreclosure. One myth in particular would be the fact the bank needs to have your house. The bank wants your cash, not your house. They want the cash they lent you together with interest. Steering clear of the bank will only draw some sort of foreclosed final result. Thanks for your post.

  7. Throughout this great pattern of things you’ll get a B+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you lost us was in your facts. As they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct in this article. Having said that, let me tell you exactly what did deliver the results. The article (parts of it) is pretty convincing and that is possibly the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can easily notice the jumps in logic you make, I am definitely not certain of just how you seem to unite the points which make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your point however hope in the near future you connect your dots better.

  79. I manage a vape store directory site and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also offers for sale CBD products. A Calendar month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not sell CBD goods like CBD oil. We simply provide internet marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a good look, you will witness that they sell a pretty comprehensive range of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is employing contradictory standards to different firms. Due to this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am intensely contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is undertaking is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a consistent standard to all firms. I am still to speak to another lawyer from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
