Returned to Jakes with my family (wife and 2 teenage sons) for a week after an 8 year gap. It was excellent then and, if anything, seems to have improved further. We stayed in Sweet Lip, which is our favourite property. Welcome was as warm as ever; food was consistently fresh, healthy and delicious; cocktails, music and ambience of Dougie's... More

Hotel Jake's is a wonderful place in the south of Jamaica. Restaurant (for breakfast, lunch and diner) is great. Restaurant Jack Sprat, next to the hotel property, is great fun. We loved Jake's hotel dog, called Millie. Nice sunset, with great views from hotel bar Dougie's.

Vogue magazine calls this piece of heaven on earth the "chicest shack in the Caribbean" and they are correct. I brought my sister here for 10 glorious days of quiet elegant seclusion & to really see (and know) the Treasure Beach community. We were not disappointed. The place is eclectic & bohemian in all of its wonderfully well thought out... More

Mary my wife and I have just come back from Jakes. Well what can I say I was a bit concerned last year when Mary bid and won this trip at our local cricket club (Corley) from the Lashings. We arrived here late due to a delay at Gatwick, from meeting O'Neil our driver to arriving at reception we started... More

I just went on a week-long yoga retreat last week. It was my first yoga retreat, so I don't have another point of comparison, but based on my other travel experiences, I have to say that this was one of the best I've ever had. We practiced at the rooftop studio twice a day. The deck overlooks the ocean and... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing vacation and Jakes delivered. We had massages at the Driftwood Spa our first morning. My husband says it's the best massage he's ever had. We also did yoga one day, which is above the spa and overlooks the sea. The food at Jakes is locally grown and without preservatives. You can... More

Before booking at Jakes, I read through the reviews and I think they are very accurate. The atmosphere at Jakes is relaxed and is a perfect place to get away. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food was fantastic. We especially liked the dinners at the Jakes restaurant. I also had a pre-natal massage at the Driftwood Spa and... More

We all went on a yoga retreat. It was our first time and we will go back again. The food is wonderful and fun to try things we have never eaten before. The food service was very slow. We kind of got used to it...but it was soooo slow at times. We found ourselves mostly in the dining area as... More

There are very slick and chic boutique hotels that are overly designed but have no soul. Jake's isn't anything like that. It teems with authenticity and provides a sincere experience and impression of the beautiful island of Jamaica while still delivering an incredible hotel experience. It's perfect for anyone who wouldn't step foot at an all inclusive: unique, bespoke, owner... More
