The main villa still retains many of the original furnishings, including Ian Fleming’s writing desk and can be hired out for a truly exclusive holiday.
There is such a relaxed, typically-Jamaican atmosphere at Goldeneye it’s not uncommon to find guests and staff playing backgammon and Hollywood rummy on the beach, however if you would prefer to do something a little less sedate, there are horse riding centres and golf courses just thirty minutes away.
