One of the best if not the best beach in Jamaica. Water was perfect. Nice waves. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Food and drinks from the restaurant was delicious and very reasonable. Will definitely be back!

Beautiful white sand beach! Fantastic waves for body surfing. Beach is very clean and there is a lifeguard. Very little seaweed. There is enough shallow water for young children to okay in. Great food at the beach side restaurant. Loungers are available to rent for approximately $2.00 US

This supposedly small and exclusive resort looks as though it was once a great place and occupies one of the nicest small beaches in the area. That is about the best I can say of it. The food available for breakfast is extremely limited and the service is overall terrible throughout the resort. There has been little to no maintenance done to the $300.00 per night Villas since they were built and the bathrooms are full of mold and broken grout. The cafe on the beach is worse than average and very limited and the staff are rude, but this is the only dining option so you'll be eating outside the resort most days. The resort sells passes to the tiny beach to the public. You can expect bus loads of visitors arriving from around 9am most days and at times you could not even get on the beach for all the bodies. Not the private beach they advertise. Frankly the place is a disaster and way overpriced. We checked out half way through our stay dues to the hundreds of visitors each day and the terrible services. However Frenchman's Cove were not about to discuss a refund from the over $3000.00 charge they had already placed on my credit card. In addition they charged us way too much for the room and played dumb when I asked for a refund of the balance. We have contacted them on our return as well and guess what? No reply! Thanks for ruining our Xmas and New Years holiday in Jamaica.

This place is really weird and must have an owner who either just doesn't care or has given up and certainly lousy management. There are just too many obvious things that are wrong and could easily improve this place many notches (closer to how it must have been in its glory days when Queen Elisabeth II, The Beatles and other celebrities went here in the 1960s to experience tranquility. Tips to the owners: - Tell the people cleaning the beach that cleaning rubbish should have higher priority than raking leaves. - Tell the same people that maybe they should start a bit earlier so that the beach is clean by the time guest arrive - it makes a lot better impression to your guest to wake up to a clean beach - Maybe even consider to have waste bins visible around the beach so people had an alternative to throwing litter around. - Tell guest when they arrive where they can get dinner. I'm sure we're not the first to be dismayed about the lack of anything to eat in the evening. - Get someone to either lay some new asphalt up to the big house - or just have someone remove the remains of asphalt that still remains - 50/50 solution is not great. - Get someone to SERIOUSLY clean the rooms and common areas. Last deep clean sometime in the 1970s? - Fire the janitor and get someone who knows how to maintain building masses. The property is literally falling apart. We had a mixture of mold and old paint drop of the roof over the balcony and down on our heads and the paint on the railings was just falling off. - Have someone do regular maintenance of the AC so that it works properly. - Have someone update the description of the property at hotels.com. It is not an all-inclusive if you don't serve dinner. The beach isn’t really private if you allow any oursiders to enter (I'm fine with you doing so but then then "private" is misleading) and the rooms in the big house do NOT have fridges. To enjoy this place: - Have a car! Do NOT come here if you don't have your own transportation or not on an organised tour. - Have breakfast at 07:30 sharp and go to the insanely beautiful beach and have it all by yourself for 2 hours until slowly more and more people get there. - Plan to have lunch before the tour groups are served - expect chaos - the one restaurant at the beach has absolutely no clue on how to deal with queues and reservations. You will most likely talk with 3-4 different people until you understand who can or will even accept your order. Then expect to be confused as to whether you will or when your food will be ready. Expect to have to ask a few times. Once you get the food its actually not all that bad though. - When you're hungry for dinner and realise there is nothing to eat at this place, get in your car and drive 5 minutes to Woodys and have yourself an excellent burger. - Stack up on drinks, water and snacks - don't expect to be able to buy even a drop of water to drink after 6:30pm - the bar at the big house isn’t always open - If you stay in one of the rooms at the big house then go down to the restaurant and grab a couple of chairs for your balcony. For some reason the hotel seems to expects you to either just be standing or to lay down on the tiles on the balcony. - If you want to visit the neighbouring Blue Lagoon - don't. Just stay at the beach. It's much nicer. Or head to Winnifred beach for an authentic local gorgeous beach. On the bright side, the location is stunning. The surroundings seem well maintained and we enjoyed breakfast.
