THIS IS THE WORST FOOD I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!! And anyone that knows me, knows that I can eat anything, anywhere. The jerk chicken was gristley and I couldn't ID the parts.

I had approx. 100 guests of both local Jamaicans and foreigners from the states, and both commented on how gorgeous the location was. Our ceremony was held in the outdoor courtyard, and the dinner reception... More

It was recommended by a stranger who celebrated his wedding reception there in 2007. I looked at their pictures and was sold. My husband and I, along with nearly 40 guests had a blast. Ms.... More

She kept in contact with us in the UK... More
