Susan and her family where so warm. My favorite part about the room is the balcony with a hammock over looking the jungle and creek. I liked the natural wood in the rooms, hot water, morning breakfast and her kids dance off.

Wonderful staff, Richie was very helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks Susan for your hospitality! Stayed at RafJam December 17th to the 20th. Original plan was to climb up the Blue Mountain peak, but regretfully had to postpone. Still in my bucket list though.

A charming B&B deep in the Blue mountains of Jamaica, beautiful gardens, very helpful owners and great food. The mountains are an eye opener, passing wooden huts selling local produce you come up on the far from aptly named Red light district of Newcastle! The hotel is down a steep mud track and is nestled in the bottom of a...

I was only able to stay one night but found the staff accommodating, the property was beautiful, and the food was excellent. Highly recommended if you're looking for a tranquil stay in the blue mountains without sacrificing creature comforts.

The view was beautiful and the Rasta tour was totally worth it. We also swam in the waterfalls and got massages. I wish I had taken a mosquito repellent because it was hard to find one over there. I wish I could go back. Great great great experience!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Deep in the valleys of the Blue Mountains, Rafjam Bed and Breakfast offers an authentic, local Jamaican experience like none other. Rafjam is located up the B1 highway from Papine in Kingston. After about a 30 minute drive and arrival to the town of Red Light, turn right on Hopewell Road and drive all the way down the cul-de-sac. Nestled between two rivers, the guest accommodations are perched high above the natural scenery: the cascading river in our backyard or the fleeting glimpse of a hummingbird sipping rain water from the petals of a heliconia. The climate in the mountains drifts from sun to cloud all day, with scattered rain. Rafjam offers an ideal spot to soak in the soothing Jamaican sun while not getting scorched along the way. You can always jump into one of the many freshwater pools on the property to cool off, or climb up to the 15 foot waterfall just five minutes away. Born and raised in Springdale Cove, Susan inherited her parent's house and decided to refurbish. Eager to offer a taste of paradise to everyone, she opened these magnificent Blue Mountain Cottages with the help of her husband. This vivacious, real Jamaican lady and her professional, laid back team will welcome you and provide whatever you need for you to enjoy your stay. Rafjam's kitchen serves a variety of succulent Jamaican and international cuisines. Our team includes world renowned chefs who evoke their Caribbean, North and South American, and European palates with their culinary creations. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available. A special request? We will cook according to your taste. Many of the items we serve are grown organically right here in our own backyard or acquired directly from local farmers. A global, eco-friendly gustatory experience in the quiet heart of the Blue Mountains.Five star service in a family setting... you will surely be back again! Rafjam: service beyond expectation... Rafjam also has a hostel in Kingston towN,for those of you who wants to stay closer to Kingston for night life, beach, etc. ... more   less
