I ended up extending my stay at Muriel's apartment. This is a strata property where the 32 apartments are privately owned and some are available for rental. An older property but well maintained with pleasant and efficient staff. Across the road are restaurants and a supermarket that seems to sell everything from a pin to an anchor. The apartment itself is comfortable and had everything I needed. As this is an apartment complex and not a hotel there is no bar or restaurant but I coped nicely with bringing some food, purchasing some and taking a main meal across the road some days. I needed a rest from the city (Kingston) and a swim in the ocean. I achieved my purpose and expect I will be back. It is an easy drive from Kingston and mainly highway
Awesome place! Amazing views, clean and comfortable room and environment. I enjoyed my stay.
Absolute gorgeous resort. Great location! Security guard on site at all times. Gated community. Restaurants and grocery right across the street. This place was like a paradise!
Very beautiful place to stay if you want a nice quiet get away. I stood outside the apartment before I left and made a deep sigh at the thought of leaving such a wonderful atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and friendly so you will be in good hands. Plenty of places to get food nearby including a supermarket with lots of goodies. It is not a hotel so do not expect the same things or quality a hotel would offer but it is good value for money with a nice pool and seaside that is a plus.
this place is great. the little ocean cove is right out the door past the pool. you can swim a little, sun bathe in lounge chairs, listen to the waves. there's a couple good local restaurants a short walk down the road, and a fancy place for special dinner right across the street. the condo staff are helpful and friendly

“Nice place with nice people” Reviewed 1 week ago My husband and I spent New Years week at Chrisanna. We stayed in Apt 3 which was bright and clean with a very comfortable king size bed and fully equipped kitchen. Our housekeeper Jennifer was the sweetest and went out of her way to make us feel at home. The night security guard Marvin was very friendly and helped us to our room since we arrived at 1 am, we slept well at night knowing he was on watch. Day security man Chris was always helpful with advice on what to see and do. He took a lot of interest in the visitors and had many suggestions on what to do depending on your interest. The pool man climbs up the coconut trees to share the fruits with visitors, he is crafty with his knife making a spoon so you can try the jelly in the shell. We loved that area of town, it was clean and felt safe. The restaurants across the street were very good, the Jerk place was best. There was also a grocery store. Beautiful ocean view, comfortable , quiet, and safe, what more could you ask for? We had a great time. The best part of Jamaica was the friendly local people! We hope to see our new friends at Chrisanns again soon!
My husband and I stayed at Chrisanns during Summer 2012 along with our two teenage daughters and experienced an unforgettable holiday. Chrisanns is conveniently located on the 'Northcoast' and easily reached by car from anywhere in Jamaica The accommodation was a self contained studio apartment with separate kitchenette and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances one would expect to have at home. Stocking up the kitchen was very easy as there is a supermarket just across the road and if you were too lazy to cook there was also a lovely restaurant and cocktail bar directly opposite the complex. The room was large enough to hold a King size bed plus two single beds. It is situated on the ground floor and has a convenient sliding door which opens onto a very 'inviting' glistening communal pool. The pool was well maintained and was always clean. On leaving the apartment you can walk along the pool deck and then down a few stairs and arrive at the beach front within one minute. The beach itself is an enclosed Bay which makes swimmers, bathers and water sports a lot safer as you were not fully exposed to the open sea! In fact we felt safe enough to 'chill out' in the apartment a lot while our girls enjoyed both the pool and beach by themselves at times.. The Baileys were excellent hosts and were very accommodating in every way, making our stay very enjoyable as it had a sense of home away from home. Muriel (Mrs. Bailey, the owner) even telephoned when we arrived to ensure that we had everything we needed. The staff was very helpful, welcoming and friendly... ...can't wait to get back there again!
Very nice getaway!!
The service was quite warm, accommodating and responsive. The apartment had a very homely feel and with the swimming pool just outside your glass doors, you can't help but wake up with a grin on your face.

Sure, It was amazing the scenery is beautiful, restaurant Glenns was tasty and convenient, ( I even got a free slice of cake for my birthday) we even rented a nice car from Exodus Car Rental which was right beside Glenns. The staff was very helpful and our room was always clean. I am recommending Villa Criss to my relatives in the States. Villa Criss- Safe, Secure, Serene and Satisfying at a Sensational Price. Planning for next year already :0
"Staying at Villa Criss was a easy transition from the time we booked. The location is perfect as it's close enough to main tourist attractions of Ocho Rios and situated within walking distance to stores/food establishments and the atmosphere exactly what we expected. The place is spacious, clean and a home charm feeling. The owner was professional and assisted us in all ways possible to ensure that the booking and payment was a stress free event. We hope to rent this pool/ocean side villa in April 2013 and look forward to dealing with Muriel again." Sincerly Shannon Clement/Kirk Whyte, Toronto, Ontario- Canada.
