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... More

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... More

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... More

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

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... More

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... More

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... More

Drapers San is a wonderful guesthouse. We spent 7 nights, dinners and breakfast are delicious and our room was perfect! Drapers is a little village in Portland parish, 10 minutes from Port Antonio and the guest house is perfectly located - close to the most beautiful jamaican beaches, especially Winnifred Beach, a public area where you can spend long hours...

for a tiny room with shared bathroom, this is over priced, the worst guest house we have stayed in Jamaica. Full of dogs and cats...Jamaica is a great place to visit, just don't visit Drapers San.

Tiny , small , cell block rooms. For the same rate at various places, we had huge rooms, or seperate chalets. Overpriced. Dogs maul you at the gate, cats come into you room. On a busy main road. No access to gardens or beach. Breakfast was fine, and nice local girl serving us. Go to Long Bay and stay at... More
