Zimbali Retreats and Cooking Studio are not to be missed if visiting Jamaica!!Located on the Canaan Mountain you will be witness to the beauty of rural Jamaica and the bounty of the jungle!!Zimbali is a truly one of a kind place with a true IRIE vibe!!Upon entering the property you are surrounded by amazing sights,sounds and smells!!A glass of fresh,natural juice is a thirst quenching treat that only gets you curious and excited about what's to come.All Zimbali's meals are cooked with farm,FRESH ingredients and LOVE!The cooking studio is well layed out so all can see as Chef Alecia prepares and explains each couse!It is fun and informative from start to finish and not to be missed.As I have also stayed at Zimbali many times I also highly suggest an overnight stay!The rooms are beautiful,each with a private porch for Full-joying the sounds and sights of the jungle!They also have recently put in a pool area-another wonderful place to watch the world go by!!Go to Zimbali!!

Upon arrival we were yelled at to just go to the bar because the chef was mad at another individual so she didn’t want to deal with anyone . We didn’t even say a word to her . Not a good vibe from the start. My husband was basically called stupid because he didn’t know the exact name of a tree . Very degrading to guests . Didn’t get a farm tour because it started pouring . Demanded we go back into sitting area . And wait … we got to watch the cooking show from the chefs back side . She did not speak to us . Very rude to the staff. My husband did not care for the pumpkin soup and was given attitude for not eating it . When dinner was over we were all instructed to come pay our bill . Chef argued with me that we didn’t pay . When I showed her my receipt I paid online and my credit card statement. She literally made us feel like we weren’t worthy of her time and we’re trying to rip her off . I would not recommend this to anyone .

Not sure where you went, but it wasn't Zimbali. We have a very easy old world charm here and no one is ever rude here. The fact that you list about 10 times where someone was rude to you really makes me wonder...once would be a problem here- 10X is a problem somewhere else... We have over 1000 reviews on various platforms and I welcome people to not believe what I say, but read what other people say.

Absolutely amazing
Incredible experience. The food is amazing, and even more special that it comes from the farm on the property.
