Let me start by saying Jamaica is my happy place on earth and really is home from home for me. I'm a seasoned traveller and with the emergence of Airbnb/Flipkey and other similar options I have enjoyed staying in a local community, going to the supermarket, meeting local people and experiencing the culture in a different way and have done...

Pools were clean and well kept. Food was good and plenty of it. Cons; lots of rocks in the water and along the beach which made... More

Loved everything about this little piece of Jamaica. Felt really safe here, place and people was friendlier than the bigger resorts. Fishermans beach is a must! Such a laid back natural beauty and fresh fish to die for! Favors beach was beautifull, we were the only couple on the beach it was like our own private beach! Amazing can't wait... More
