In January my husband and I did a road trip all around Jamaica, staying at 6 different resorts all over the island from Negril to Morant Bay--and without a doubt Irie Rest Guest House was absolutely the best experience of all (also the most inexpensive)! The vibe is excellent and relaxed, the accomodation is great value. Our room was more like an apartment with a separate kitchen and a lovely screened-in verandah overlooking the blossom-filled courtyard. Treasure Beach is a beautiful part of Jamaica, while not lush like the north coast, there are so many flowers here basking in the golden sunshine and even the earth refuses to be dull shining a bright Terracotta colour. The town has wonderfull places to eat (Jake's, Jack Spratt and of course Irie Rest itself!) and the people and gracious and helpful--not a hustler in sight! Jamaica was so completely refreshing and unexpectedly easy to travel around. We really recommend renting a car (we did and clocked over 2000 km on the odometer!). Take a trip to Alligator Pond for Little Ochi. If your are there around January 6th, take a trip to Accompong for the annual Maroon Festival.
