I spent one night at the place and everything was good! It´s a guest house for travellers! I rented a private room with private rest room, the water was hot and the room was clean. The place was confortable, simple and it was located near Blue Lagoon and Boston Bay. I tried breackfast and dinner and both were great! The...

Drapers San felt like a tropical retreat. Our room was clean and had an ocean view. Almost no water pressure in the shower, but the super friendly and helpful staff (Shene and Keke) made our stay enjoyable. Fresh fruit for breakfast was delicious.

It seems that there are not inexpensive places to stay in and around Port Antonio. I guess there is only Oone hostel which is not conveniently located in Port Antonio. After looking around and calling few places, I found this place which seemed reasonable in terms of price and location. I paid 35USD for a night (solo traveller), and ended...

We spent 2 nights at drapers san. The owner Carla and her daughter are nice people. The location is great if you plan to discover the different beaches in the area. The b&b itself looks nice. The garden is cute. But We've paid 84$/night for the private room with bathroom. Well it is extensive if you consider the quality of...

My husband and I would like to thank the owner, Carla Gullotta, her daughter Francesca, and the staff at Drapers San for a relaxed and enjoyable six-day stay at this gem of a guesthouse in a small and safe community just east of Port Antonio. The property is nestled beside the Caribbean Sea in an ideal location from which travellers...

I loved this place!!!!! The feel of the landscape and the accommodations was so very Italian, which of course makes sense considering the owners are but this is very atypical for Jamaica. Carla, Franchesca and Chris were so wonderful, warm and inviting. Everything we wanted and/or needed was readily available. Great places to eat are within walking distance. Amazing beaches...

She is doing a great job and started this business where are working also locals. Chris the chef is very good and you will...

We spent two nights with Carla and her folks in January. We can't say enough good things about our stay and the village of Drapers. We were trying to arrange travel to a couple of different lodging options during a quick visit to Jamaica in January. We came across Carla's place and decided to book and our confirmed dates changed...

We can’t think of a better place to stay than Drapers San Guest House where the atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. It is the ideal place to meet other travellers and to share experiences. In the evenings, people sit outside in the garden to have a drink, chat and listen to the sound of the waves and the concert...

This guesthouse is anything but bland. It struck me as more European than Jamaican, and certainly not 'Anglo-Saxon' or American. The other guests when we were there were speaking French and Italian (and seemed friendly and pleased when I joined in rather haltingly), and there was some (tobacco) smoking in the garden. The property nestles on a steep and narrow...
