We were disappointed by this guest house. It is NOT near a beach- the nearest is a miles walk away along a busy road. The room was very basic but we did have the worst one I think. The water ran out and we were told this was a usual problem in the area, but we had plentiful water in... More

Dear Sirs i was reading with great disappointment your report. And I felt that your info were not truthful. First of all Drapers San has Sanku Bay beach at 200 m from its entrance and Frenchamns Cove beach is at 600m which means 10 minutes walking Secondly breakfast is abundant, same as dinner is Breakfast, menu is composed of 3...

We were there for one week and stayed in the Rasta Cottage. We liked Carla, Francesca and the rest of the staff. Were very informative and gave us some tips. Was fun to meet travelers from different countries. It has a good porch and view, but for the money the room and esp. the bathroom needs some fixing up. I... More

Our family of 4 found Drapers San guest house adorable and delicious for the 2 nights we spent there. Keke made local cuisine for dinner at a very reasonable rate served family style. Shanae was friendly and provided a light fruit and baked goods breakfast with great coffee. Keke was able to line up surfing lessons for my sons at... More

The place was confortable, simple and it was located near Blue Lagoon and Boston Bay. I tried breackfast and dinner and both were great! The... More

Drapers San felt like a tropical retreat. Our room was clean and had an ocean view. Almost no water pressure in the shower, but the super friendly and helpful staff (Shene and Keke) made our stay enjoyable. Fresh fruit for breakfast was delicious.

It seems that there are not inexpensive places to stay in and around Port Antonio. I guess there is only Oone hostel which is not conveniently located in Port Antonio. After looking around and calling few places, I found this place which seemed reasonable in terms of price and location. I paid 35USD for a night (solo traveller), and ended... More

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

I was really looking to stay at Drapers San after so many years.. We had a wonderful experience and we had the opportunity to meet Carla who is really helping the local community to grow up. 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
