We stayed here after 3 days in Ocho Rios and this was HEAVEN! The grounds are so beautiful and well taken care of. Susan and her staff run this place so well. She and Richie, her driver, came to get us from Ochi so we got pretty acquainted on the way. The Blue Mountains are so beautiful and the roads... More

I was at Rafjam for 2 nights recently. I won this stay 2 years ago in a Facebook contest given by Rafjam and was thrilled to finally see what all the hype is about! First I want to say that I am a stickler about customer service and cleanliness. I am very well traveled and have visited Jamaica many times.... More

After weaving through paved, potholed, Jamaican roads, you'll eventually find your way to a dirt road. I would highly encourage NOT doing this journey in the dark, as Google Maps will lead you astray and you may miss important signs leading you in the right direction. We did the drive with a small Toyota and it turned out fine, but... More

My partner and I stayed there recently (December 19th) in the Africa room and we were so sad that we were there for a night. The walk to the property was such a joy we got to meet residents of the community, who were friendly and accommodating. The property was beautiful, the staff was attentive and courteous. The FOOD was... More

Had the most fantastic experience at RafJam! Family run and in the remote hills of the Blue Mountains, just a gorgeous retreat into nature. Did some lovely hikes here too (they have a waterfall on the property) under the guidance of one of the lovely staff members! Highly recommended, I loved my stay here with these wonderful people!
