Tryall Villas rent for US$630\785 low season, US$1,185/1,570 high, for superior or deluxe category, respectively. They come fully staffed with excellent cooks who prepare delectable Jamaican favorites and are adept at international cuisine. Most suites and villas have a one-week minimum stay during the high season, reduced to three or four days during the low season. Given the villas are privately owned, certain owners establish their own low and high season dates and discounts, so these can vary.
Tryall has one of the top golf courses in the Caribbean; it sits on an 890-hectare estate that extends deep into the Hanover interior. Tennis and golf are offered to nonmembers (greens fees are US$125 daily plus tax, carts are US$30 plus tax, and a caddy is US$30, plus a customary US$20 tip). Tryall guests pay substantially less (greens fees US$70/100 plus tax low/high season). There are nine tennis courts, two with lights. The cushioned courts are less slippery than the faux clay. Courts are for members and guests only and included in the stay. Related fees include US$23/hour for hitting partner, US$48 to play with a club pro, and US$7 per hour for a ball boy. At night, courts cost US$20 per hour for the lights.
The food at Tryall is an excellent value, while far from inexpensive, with Master Chef Herbert Baur demonstrating his wealth of experience in overseeing day-to-day operations. Meals are kept interesting with the Jamaican barbecue dinner on Wednesday, seafood buffet dinner on the beach on Friday, and open-air Ã la carte dining on the veranda of the main house on other evenings (7\9:30 p.m). Tryall sources 95 percent of the produce it serves locally, as well as 100 percent of the chicken and pork.
