If you want a lovely place to stay in the beautiful Blue Mountains, Rafjam is a good choice. The streams and water falls were peaceful. The rooms were exceptionally clean. Susan's family is wonderful and provided a peaceful place to rest and enjoy the Blue Mountains. The breakfast was included and the other meals were reasonably priced and very good.... More

We travelled to Jamaica in Jan. 2014 and spent 4 days at Rafjam's B&B. The lush scenery, fresh cooler air and green hills were absolutely breathtaking. Nestled in a valley in the Blue Mountains, this place is really unique and buzzing with life. We stayed in our own private cottage which was literally built along the side of a rock... More

A few days ago we left Rafjam with a little bit of pain in our hearts. We loved the atmosphere, the people and the beautiful and fresh surroundings. What we wanted, it was all there. Susan is a lovely host and her team is absolutely fun to have around. They made us all feel right at home. We loved it.... More

If you have a chance, i would suggest you rent the cottage. It comes with your private kitchen, bbq and natural swimming pool. At night you get a firefly-firework at no cost at all. Excellent place to relax after the stress of travelling the island. Superfriendly owner and staff.

My husband and I visited Rafjam in January of 2014. This was the most memorable portion of an exquisite trip around the entire perimeter of Jamaica. The staff is endearing and incredibly hospitable.

Susan and her family are fantastic hosts and the property is beautiful. Walking through all of the gardens and listening to the river that runs through the property was very serine.

It really felt like i left home and found home right back everyone was so friendly. My favourite part of the trip was the waterfall we had all to ourselves. I didn't want the overcrowding of the all-inclusives and i found that at Rafjam's. Thanks Susan and the entire family for the warm service

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Deep in the valleys of the Blue Mountains, Rafjam Bed and Breakfast offers an authentic, local Jamaican experience like none other. Rafjam is located up the B1 highway from Papine in Kingston. After about a 30 minute drive and arrival to the town of Red Light, turn right on Hopewell Road and drive all the way down the cul-de-sac. Nestled between two rivers, the guest accommodations are perched high above the natural scenery: the cascading river in our backyard or the fleeting glimpse of a hummingbird sipping rain water from the petals of a heliconia.The climate in the mountains drifts from sun to cloud all day, with scattered rain. Rafjam offers an ideal spot to soak in the soothing Jamaican sun while not getting scorched along the way. You can always jump into one of the many freshwater pools on the property to cool off, or climb up to the 15 foot waterfall just five minutes away.Born and raised in Springdale Cove, Susan inherited her parent's house and decided to refurbish. Eager to offer a taste of paradise to everyone, she opened these magnificent Blue Mountain Cottages with the help of her husband. This vivacious, real Jamaican lady and her professional, laid back team will welcome you and provide whatever you need for you to enjoy your stay.Rafjam's kitchen serves a variety of succulent Jamaican and international cuisines. Our team includes world renowned chefs who evoke their Caribbean, North and South American, and European palates with their culinary creations. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available. A special request? We will cook according to your taste. Many of the items we serve are grown organically right here in our own backyard or acquired directly from local farmers. A global, eco-friendly gustatory experience in the quiet heart of the Blue Mountains.Five star service in a family setting... you will surely be back again!Rafjam: service beyond expectation... ... more   less
