Friendly to travelers and tourists alike, Rafjam is a gem in the Blue Mountains. Located only 45 minutes out of Kingston town, this place is so beautiful and peaceful! I lived there for three weeks and referred to it as the Jungle Palace. The beautiful waterfall and pools in the backyard were my favorite places to relax and rejuvenate. Everyone... More

While visiting Rafjam Bed and Breakfast, I thought it would be like any other Bed and Breakfast, warm and welcoming, but instead I was greeted with the most beautiful welcoming smiling staff I have ever met. My bedroom left me in awe, namely Van Gogh. The view from my balcony was out of this world, the sound of the running... More

No high blood pressure meds needed here. The place is like the garden of Eden. Susan and her staff are very accomplished. We were picked up down in Kingston and brought on a magical roller coaster ride up here to RafJam. The first thing we had upon request was the BEST pumpkin and chicken soup I have ever had, followed... More

The gardens are like a mini paradise, stunning with a natural pool. The staff are young and dynamic, helpful and fun. The cook goes out of his way to make great food. We really loved it here, perfect mountain break or weekend getaway.

There are so many wonderful things to say about Rafjam's.

I was travelling alone and it immediately felt like home. Due to this warmth and openness, the other guests were also friendly. The location is... More

This place is adorable and I swear they make the best akee and salt fish on the island. breezy and cool with lots of little river pools to jump in, one can really lose track of time here! The staff is incredible and the coffee is delicious. Leave with some of their home made pepper medley.

Cons: It is high in the mountains and a bit isolated ,keep that in mind if you have children, elderly or someone traveling with a medical condition. It's not that easy getting... More
