WHAT TIME IS CHECK-IN? CHECKOUT?
Check-in is officially at 3 p.m. Checkout is at noon. We will do everything possible to accommodate early arrivals and late departures.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT HOUSEKEEPING AND LAUNDRY SERVICE?
Your housekeeper will come every day. Please let them know when you have laundry — place clothes in the laundry bag and fill out the form. It will be returned to you within hours.
In the evening, your housekeeper will provide turn-down service and prepare your room for the night. Normally, rooms are left open for you to enjoy the breeze, the sound of the sea and nature’s wonderful night noises. If you prefer to have your room closed and the air conditioner turned on, please leave instructions for your housekeeper to do so.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
No jackets. No ties. (Flip-flops, yes!)
WHAT SHOULD I PACK?
Shampoo, conditioner, soap, Q-tips and cotton balls are all in your room. Sporting equipment? It’s waiting for you. Books? We’ve got the entire James Bond series. And yes, there are plenty of backgammon sets. You could just jump on a plane and come!
THE MUSIC AT GOLDENEYE IS AMAZING! WHERE CAN I FIND IT?
Bruno Guez, who founded Quango Records and works closely with Blackwell, has programmed all of the music at GoldenEye.
SHOULD WE BE WORRIED ABOUT STAYING SAFE IN JAMAICA?
We promise, you won’t feel anything but safe during your stay. Our staff loves GoldenEye, has worked here for years and calls it their home. The town of Oracabessa, in which GoldenEye is located, is a lovely country town. Plus, when you go off exploring the island, we’ll send you with a guide who’s on home turf.
SAFETY-DEPOSIT BOXES – ARE THEY IN THE ROOM?
Yes, every room has a mini safe for your valuables and important documents.
