we were there for 1 night only but was enough to fell in love with this little nice guest house. it's very clean and pretty and Rosanna let you feel at home! (she is Italian like me and that was nice!) the guest house is located in the middle of the locals houses, perfect to feel the real Jamaican Life!... More

I stayed at Search-Me-Heart between 6 and 20 March and enjoyed it even more than I thought I could after reading the reviews and looking at the pictures on the Search-Me-Heart website and facebook page. Rosanna arranged for a Juta taxi to pick me up from Montego Bay airport and although it is a long drive to Portland I enjoyed... More

This February my husband and I spent three weeks at the guesthouse Search-Me-Heart located in Drapers, Jamaica, 6 miles from Port Antonio. This was our second stay at Search-Me-Heart. (See my review of Search-Me-Heart April 3, 2013) We love the clean airy rooms, the relaxed international atmosphere, the delicious breakfasts prepared by Kay, the location, and Rosanna’s hospitality.

My husband and I stayed at Search Me Heart for our "pre-wedding honeymoon". Though Jamaica has tons of all-inclusive spots, we wanted something that would allow us to see more of the authentic Jamaica and interact with Jamaican people and culture. Search Me Heart was great for this. We had the "white room", which was simple (a fan, mosquito netting... More

I spent 3 nights at Search-Me-Heart and enjoyed the quiet, calm and friendly atmosphere. Upon my arrival in Port Antonio I called Rosanna and she made arrangments for someone to come pick me up from the town center. Rosanna is a kind and gentle person and she is always ready to assist you with anything you need. I was able... More

I don't even know where to start ... Search-Me-Heart is THE place to be near Port Antonio! Best value for money ever! The house is splendid, the rooms are perfectly clean and Rosana is a lovely host! We had a wonderful time with Roy- the stepson of Rosana- who made us discover a few secret spots in Drapers! We even... More

I have stayed at Search-Me-Heart all three times that I have visited Jamaica. The nearby beaches are some of the most beautiful beaches you could ask for, much more desirable than most in Hawaii, where I lived for eight years. It amazes me that the beaches are not crowded, but most travelers to Jamaica prefer touristy places in Negril and... More

We went to Search-Me-Heart just after Negril. This is the opposite, in a great way! No crowds at the perfect beaches, and instead of an big Resort a very unique and beautiful apartment! Rosanna and her crew treated us as family members. They gave us very good information about the area and we spent some nice hours in the little... More

We spent six wonderful days and nights at Search-Me-Heart, a lovely guesthouse in Drapers, Jamaica. Rosanna Trifogli owns the guesthouse and was our caring and delightful hostess. She was ably assisted by her stepson Roy, who cooked dinners for us and was our guide, and Kay who prepared nice breakfasts everyday and kept our room fresh and clean. The guesthouse... More
