This was the first non-kid five nighter since kids. It needed to be perfect. Jake's was the prescription for what ailed us all the way. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and one of us had been to Jamaica, one had not. We did not want all inclusive barbwire service. The purpose of the trip was active relaxation and some...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved every moment! We could not possibly fault Jake's in any way. Our room had no air con, but the strong fans, mosquito net, high ceilings and proximity to the pool more than made up for it! We would definitely recommend and stay again. The food was also fantastic with... More

This was our second stay at Jake's and we were not disappointed. It is such a unique, boutique hotel with a really authentic feel. The staff are always so friendly and ready to help- especially Trudy. Lulled to sleep by the ocean, we even slept outside one night on our adobe rooftop terrace. We felt totally renewed by our experience.... More

I am a rainforest gal by nature. Been all over Central America and thought I would give Jamaica a try. To my surprise, Jake's was not the lush, tropical Jamaica I thought I'd be visiting. It was this quaint little gem situated in the remote, dry region of Jamaica (this means NO RAIN to ruin your day). Rather than palm... More

I love this place so much ! I stayed in the honeymoon suite and I've never slept better. It was so relaxing and comfortable. I love how rustic the design and layout of the hotel is as it gives a real homely feeling but still an amazing experience like something you would see in a movie. The staff was pleasant... More

I had the best, most relaxing vacation when I stayed at Jakes. I am so happy that my friend recommended staying there. It is a beautiful, quaint and tranquil resort. A place where you can completely forget about life back home. The staff is fantastic and so kind-hearted. They make you feel like you are part of their family and... More

My fiancé and I, as well as our immediate family stayed at the Calabash Villa and Cottage for a week, which can sleep 12 adults and 3 kids comfortably. It comes with a... More

I LOVE Jakes and refer everyone I know to this safe/secluded/beautiful slice of Jamaica. Yes, it's FAR from the airport, we're talking like 2+ hours. The drive going around the island is a bit longer, but the roads are better. Cutting across the island is faster, but the roads are treacherous and the poverty is shocking. My advice, get a... More

My husband and I have travelled to jamaica several times together and had heard about Jakes and Treasure Beach, so we decided to try it out for the first few days of our trip. For starters, the drive from the airport is interminable! We usually stay in Negril, so we are accustomed to a drive from the airport. The drive... More
