With attractive grounds on the beach our expectations of this hotel were high. However after a slow check-in and viewing our rather dismal room with a toilet leaking onto the bathroom floor we quickly realised that this property has been left to decay from its glory days of 30-40 years ago. As it was lunchtime we decided on a quick... More

Out of many beaches that I have seen, Frenchman's Cove is one of my favourites. My family and I were attending a wedding on the beach on the day, so we stayed in the hotel on the lot. It's okay but could do with TLC. The place stunk a bit and we found chicken bones on the couch, but apart... More

The location of the resort is the great issue. Is in a area that covers the beach Frenchman Cove, one of the most beautiful in Jamaica. Furthermore, is close to San San Beach, Blue Lagoon and Winnifred Beach. By the conditions of the infraestructure of the hotel, the price is expensive, about 125USD a economic option. There is not refrigerator,... More

I've just returned from my ninth visit to Frenchman's Cove...I organise conferences there every February.... I think it's the most beautiful place I know. The grounds, river, beach, cliffs, lush vegetation and wildlife are stunning. The villas are a bit dated, but spacious and the views spectacular. The staff are helpful and welcoming and the food at the beach cafe... More

Amazing location and great holiday resort. Looking back at our photos brings back so many good memories of one of the best family holidays of my life. We would thoroughly recommend this resort to both couples and families.

this hotel badly needs renovated. They take your money at check in so after you see state of rooms you can't leave. The grand house is a concrete building which resembles a cheap motel. No soundproofing in rooms. Windows don't close properly so invested with mosquitoes. The place is situated amongst thick vegetation and there are villas situated amongst this... More

I travelled with a wedding party for the weekend and everyone had complaints! This "resort" is in need of major major improvement. While there are some staff member who try to help,such as the ones at breakfast and maybe one at check out, there is much to be desired as it pertains to suitability for accommodations. Check in-We waited approximately... More

I've been to the beach before & thought based on how beautiful that was the rooms would be just as nice - I was wrong. It's clear the villas were fab back in the 70's/80's based on the design but it's also clear they haven't taken the time to rennovate the place. The fixtures, tiles, decor...everything is old. The shower... More

This resort is amazing and is a true Jamaican experience. No the rooms are not perfect, but they keep the authenticity of the surroundings and we were comfortable throughout our stay. I believe that some of the reviews need some perspective of value. If you want "pristine" accommodations, you have that option at Geejam for $1000 a night with no... More
