What I liked:

The rooms were quite charming and amazing to be right on the sea like that, however with rough waves crashing on the terrace all night long it was impossible to get any sleep!

The food was very good - healthy, creative, local and satisfying

What the hotel could do better:

The hotel had no atmosphere and the staff made no effort to crate any - hardly any music, staff have no info on group activities, were civil but not that friendly. There was no vibe between guests.

I came expecting to do yoga but it seems that they only bother to do it from time to time and not a permanent feature at all.

The surrounding beaches are not for chilling and swimming - they're for fishermen and sea too rough.

708 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

The appeal of Jake’s, in a nutshell, is that it’s more or less exactly what you would want a Jamaican boutique hotel to be like. On an island whose tourism tends toward the tasteless and the all-inclusive, a place this mellow and unassuming is guaranteed to stand out.

It’s the kind of place which aesthetically seems to have more or less assembled itself organically over the years, without much in the way of design. And the experience is an unstructured one as well; forget about scheduled activities and forced hedonism. Here you unwind on the shore or by the pool, at your own pace.

The cottages feel private and secluded, but not ostentatiously so. Even those with outdoor tubs on their sea-view decks feel more like lucky finds than five-star extravagances. It’s proof that it doesn’t take solid-gold bathtub taps to attract a top-flight crowd — the guest book at Jake’s lists some bona fide beautiful people, who are here for the atmosphere rather than the amenities.

You’re at the south end of the island, which is a bit on the remote side — expect an entertaining voyage from the airport. But Jake’s is, refreshingly, anything but solitary. Here locals and guests mix, in a good way — hole up by the pool if you like, or head out for cheap beers and some of the real Jamaica’s famous street cuisine.

The hotel has no minimum age restrictions.

How to get there:
