We stayed five nights at Pipers Cove whilst celebrating my wife's 50th birthday with family and friends. Pipers Cove is a family run hotel and we were made to feel very welcome by Miss Chin and her colleagues. The rooms are spacious and clean and the apartments are set in some beautiful well tended grounds. There is also a nice,... More

I really enjoyed staying at this Resort. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and we absolutely enjoyed every moment. Being that my husband lives in Jamaica it's very important that if we pay for a hotel anywhere in Jamaica we most definitely want things to be perfect. It was very quiet and secluded. Most everyone who worked... More

We had an ocean view room this trip and it was exactly what we expected. All rooms at Pipers are excellent. The only draw back to having the ocean front room is that it had a queen size bed instead of a king which we had on our last stay. Only 2 rooms have a king bed, and unfortunately not... More

We stayed 5 nights last week. We had the best apartment which overlooks the water. Because we so appreciated our view, we chose not to leave the grounds much. Although the menu is somewhat limited, the food is very good and reasonably priced, especially the fish. Miss Daisy, the owner, is always onsite and it is so obvious that she... More

Piper's Cove was the second hotel of five my partner and I stayed at during our two week trip to Jamaica. To be honest, we had low expectations of the hotel in comparison to the others we had booked.
