Very Special Vacation
Very Special Vacation

We have just returned from Jamaica after celebrating my special birthday at Rio Chico. We totally loved the villa. The location is amazing and the villa was exquisite. We were particularly impressed with the gardens. But the best bit without a doubt was the amazing team at the villa who could not have been more professional or nicer. We totally fell in love with the Jamaicans and their amazing sense of humour. We cannot wait to return. We just need to find a reason to celebrate!! A special thank you to Sean and Noreen at Exceptional Villas who both did an amazing job in advance of our trip
