My husband and I stayed at Tingalaya's for 9 nights in Mid-January 2015. We chose this small, private Bed&Breakfast to experience a more personal and local feeling of what Jamaica was really all about. We were not disappointed at Tingalaya's! We stayed in Hummingbird Bungalow which was absolutely beautiful---the owner, David, has collected a truly sensational number of unique antiques... More

Tingalaya's was one of the best "hotels" I have stayed at in quite some time. I put hotel in parentheses because it was far more personal than your usual accommodations. The staff and owner are always readily available, but also respect your privacy. The grounds are stunning and the room was immaculate. I really can't say enough about the property,... More

I hesitate in writing this review because I don't want to let everyone in on our slice of heaven. We are just returning from a 8 day stay and I don't have the words to describe how magical our time there was.The grounds were fantastic. We stayed on the garden side, and were often greeted by Doctor Birds and Bananaquits.... More

I had the pleasure of spending two nights at beautiful Tingalaya's retreat. I was traveling by myself, which was a great way to become immersed in the true culture of Jamaica. I met many extraordinary, kind, and compassionate people at Tingalaya's and I'm still in touch with Jubby and Maria! I felt at home both physically and spiritually. I enjoyed... More

Tingalaya's was an absolute top experience during our trip in Jamaica. We (family with 3 teenagers) started our trip there, loved it so much that we changed our itinerary (a journey across the island) and booked two additional nights to end our trip there. Rooms are spacious, personal, colonial-style jewels. Maria and the team are gems. A very personal experience!... More

This wonderful boutiqe style retreat is perfect for the traveller who wants to be close to the action of Negril and still have a completely quiet, private place to stay. The breakfast we were served that is included in the price was a combination of traditional Jamaican and a bit of North America thrown in. The grounds are well cared... More

The Tingalaya Retreat is located way, way on West End of the Island about 90 minutes drive from Montego Bay Airport. The highlights of this retreat: - the morning breakfast were everything and more. Made from mostly locally grown ingredients, waking up was a true joy. Every day we were introduced to a new local fruit or prepared treat. I... More

I cannot say enough nice things about Tingalaya's Retreat and the staff. I stayed with a small group for 4 days in mid-December, and it was nothing short of an amazing experience. The bungalows are absolutely picturesque with beautiful antique furniture. The gardens are gorgeous and well-maintained. The staff is extremely friendly, and Maria and Sophia are skilled cooks.

Everyone goes to a place with an expectation. Sometimes that's good sometimes it's not. I went with zero even though it was my childhood dream to visit Jamiaca. If you go with an expectation to Tingalaya's, just remember it's a very 'authentic' Jamaican place. It's managed by a wonderful Rastafarian named Jube that you'll immedately fall in love with.

The property is surrounded by lush manicured gardens on one side and the ocean on the opposite side. Our cottage was small but tastefully decorated. The staff was great and very helpful. The location is secluded but only 10 minutes from the town. Looking forward to going back soon.
