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

A group of 10 rented Seaweed Villa, one of Jakes properties in mid June. What a time we had. The villa amenities, grounds, décor and staff were just what we all needed. We were all looking for a place to relax and recharge and Seaweed hit the spot. From the time we arrived till the time we left everything was... More

We stayed at Jakes in March 2014. It was a second visit for my husband and me, having stayed at Jakes some 14 years ago when it had fewer rooms and cottages and no Jack Sprats. We had long talked of taking our children and finally did, though they are now grown adults. We have three, plus one traveling with... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Jake's in February. The only negative thing about our trip was that it was too short! Our wonderful driver, Andre, picked us up from our hotel in Kingston and pointed out all the sites on the way to Jake's. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with smiles and fresh juice.

I had the most fantastic vacation ever at Jake's. It is a lovely, peaceful place with the kindest staff members you can imagine. It is perfect for solitude if you need it, romance if you have a partner, or with a group of friends. I would not take kids- not enough to do and strong undertow in the water. Keep... More
