My husband I debated staying at Polkerris or the S Hotel. We relied on reviews, and we are so happy we did! Upon initial booking, Jeremy sent us a detailed message about where we were staying and directions for getting there. His timely responses made us feel comfortable before we even arrived. The day of our departure flight to MBJ, weather in the southeastern states caused our Thursday flight to be canceled and rebooked for Friday morning. Jeremy was responsive throughout the process as I gave him update after update. He rebooked our airport pickup for the new flight. The driver, Leonard (who is AMAZING, by the way) was waiting for us with a sign bearing our names. Shirley was the first employee we met. She welcomed us, gave us a tour of the property, showed us how to work the television/cable, answered all of our questions, took our breakfast order for the next morning, and provided us with glasses of some of the best cold lemonade we’ve ever tasted! My husband loved the lemonade so much that he ordered it when we dined at The Pelican Grill for dinner that night. Each morning, we enjoyed tea/coffee, fresh fruit, juice, and a Jamaican or American breakfast. Since we were in Jamaica, we ordered Jamaican each day...yummy! The American looked tasty as well as other guests opted for that. The views were spectacular! Our room was facing the sea...so beautiful. In addition to being meticulously cleaned, our room was spacious and had 2 ways to enter/exit. Seats were available on the patio for us to watch the perfect landscaping or sea. We found the pool area to be relaxing as a waterfall with colorful fish below provided a steady, relaxing sound. Flowers, flowers, flowers - they created a botanical garden feel. We didn’t play any games, but we did walk in the game room to get a feel for the room. We planned to play billiards, but we didn’t make our way back. If you wish to read in an enclosed area with books, that’s available too! We walked back and forth to the Hip Strip several times each day of our stay. We walked during the day and at night and always felt safe. We mostly opted for the route via the sister property directly in front of Polkerris, but a few times (during the day only) we walked along the road that led to Coral Cliff. We walked to Pork Pit (go left once in the Hip Strip), Margaritaville, Doctor’s Cave, the Supermarket, and Escape to Exhale Spa (located inside the Deja), Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records Restaurant - make a right once on the Hip Strip. There is a Starbucks attached to the entrance of Doctor’s Cave Beach. The Pelican Grill is to the right or left depending on where you arrive on the Hip Strip (taking the road it’s to the left, taking the sister property, it’s to the right). We went on an excursion to Negril and the driver had no problem finding the property. Downtown was only a 5 minute or so drive away. Jeremy arranged for Michael to send a driver (Leonard came back 😊) to pick us up and drop us back off at the airport. All of the staff - and I do mean ALL - were phenomenal. Housekeeping and breakfast service was top notch! When we return to MoBay, we will definitely stay at Polkerris!

We so enjoyed our week at the Polkerris Bed and Breakfast, where Elaine & Peter took such good care of us; with unique Jamaican breakfasts for me and eggs & pancakes for my less adventurous husband. We could count on them for excellent restaurant recommendations and finding our rides to get there. An evening of lobster dinner ordered in at the pool came complete with a waiter to serve it. Please don't miss out on this wonderful experience!

Peter and Elaine are fantastic hosts. They genuinely care about your experience and give excellent local knowledge on what you should see while in Jamaica. The property is beautiful and well kept, our room was very nice, and the location is great for restaurants, bars, and shops. The breakfast is tasty and sets you up for the day ahead; you also get a gorgeous view of the island while eating out on the patio by the pool. And when one of us wasn’t feeling great one morning, Elaine was quick to offer tea to help to feel better. I would recommend Doctor’s Cave beach, which is a short walk from the property for a local beach day. Can’t say enough nice things about our stay at Polkerris!

This was our first bed and breakfast and it was absolutely great. Elaine welcomed us warmly and checked us in 2 hours early. We had Jamaican breakfast every morning and it was perfect. We will stay at this place next time we're in Montego Bay.

We were there with two teens and two adults- with a room in the upper house and one in the lower house. The place is architecturally pleasing with real art, lovely furniture and stunning views in every direction. There are two pools- both tile pools with surrounding tile patios, plants and views. One has a small waterfall with goldfish next to it. The home was originally the owner's home, and you can tell the care that went into the place. The beds were comfortable, with sparkling clean bathrooms, great showers. Each room had a small fridge with drinking water, and an ice bucket. They made great recommendations of places to eat, go, etc. They even arranged drivers, etc. Breakfasts are delicious- can be traditional Jamaican or Western. You can't go wrong here!
