I would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed in garden room Sea Horse Down which was spacious with sun loungers at back (though no view) and seats at front including rocking seat and view of beach. Food: excellent. Could not fault. Once chef cooked a fish we had caught on boat trip, we were only charged for sides. However I... More

It's about 15 years since we last stayed at Jakes but after an idyllic week here the one question on our minds is: why did we ever go anywhere else? The good things haven't gone anywhere: it is supremely relaxed and the quiet south coast location right on the water is as stunning as ever. Dougie the legendary bartender, may... More

So we've decided to write this review not to talk about the Jake's experience. As you can read here many people have comment on the positives. Indeed it's a hidden jewel with amazing ground and staff. I want to focus my review on how Jakes's management dealt with our complaints while we were there. I won't bother you with what... More

We enjoyed Jake's for a variety of reasons, not least of which was the aesthetic. It is unique and artsy, with lovely plants and details everywhere. Visually, it was so cozy and relaxing and the pace was wonderful for us. We were just looking to rest and enjoy the warmth and quiet of the island. Because we were just looking... More

We arrived at Jakes to spend the last 4 days of a 7 day Jamaica January thaw out. After spending 3 days in Negril we were excited to have a little "upscale", and Jakes wasn't a disappointment Some of Jamaica is third world, and Jakes has carved out a lovely retreat in its midst. The guest area (dining, beach, pool,... More

We had a wonderful few days here. The room (Abalone up) was quaint and funky. The bed was very comfy although the room was quite small. It was so nice to sit out on the patio under a full moon and watch the waves. The food was very good, Jamaican and locally sourced. I recommend a trip to the Pelican... More

Jake's is probably the place with the best amenities in Treasure Beach. You don't really have to leave at all, although I would recommend exploring all the other eating options locally. None are bad and some are exceptional. It's a friendly place, social if you want it, and I think my only gripe is that we didn't book early enough... More

My family and I had a fantastic stay at Jakes. Everyone was so nice, the hotel was beautiful and the food was excellent. We also really enjoyed exploring Treasure Beach. I would highly recommend Pardy's for breakfast and the restaurant at Sunset Resort was also very good for dinner.

We just returned to Ontario from our daughters wedding which was held at Jakes on Dec 1, 2014. Most of the 50 guests, including 6 small children stayed at Jakes. My husband and I enjoyed the week in one of the lovely honeymoon mini villas at the quiet end of the resort which had a stunning ocean view. This resort... More
