Hands down the best place to stay in St. Elizabeth. The beach is huge and perfect for all the activities. They have scrimmage goals setup for a football game and kayaks so you can find the secret cave in the cliffs to the SW of the villa. House is open and catches the breeze perfectly so you can cool off when the true St. E sun hits. Staff was lovely and food was amazing. 10/10 would recommend to a friend. Just be careful that Romulus doesnt eat your football.
We have been to Treasure Beach three times now, and have stayed at Blue Marlin twice. The staff does a great job of making your experience truly luxurious. The meals are amazing; lots of seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and lots of local specialities. The house is comfortable and easily lived in. We especially love the ocean breeze that permeates. The grounds are well kept and have plenty of space for even the largest group. The gazebo has 3 hammocks and lots of shaded sitting areas for afternoon naps. We can't recommend this place enough. Once you've arrived, it's an effortless stay. I come off this trip more than any other feeling relaxed and revived.
I recently returned from my third stay at Blue Marlin & Cocina so I clearly love it!--how couldn't you! If you truly want to get away from "it all", there really is no better place. The villa is remote for sure, but I love the drive. Stopping along the way for soup or roadside food is part of the journey while seeing this beautiful country. Once there, Blue Marlin has THE BEST stretch of beach I've come across in Jamaica & I've been just about everywhere in the country. What makes it the best, is not just the size and comfort but the fact that we basically had it to ourselves for every trip. There are very few other tourists around and its fun to walk down the beach and meet some of the local fishermen and have a drink. The house(s) are lovely. Not fancy and they shouldn't be but they are beyond comfortable and spacious. Perfect for indoor/outdoor living on the beach. Most of our evenings were spent on the porch of Blue Marlin before retiring for bed but our days were spent under the incredible beach front cabana--4 hammocks, lounge chairs...why would you ever be anywhere else? The house staff could not be better. They are all so friendly and accommodating. The food is amazing--be sure to mix it up with a lot of local Jamaican food (calalloo with every meal for me). I have nothing but positive things to say about my time at BM. I've been there with friends and family for special occasions and for no reason at all. No matter what, you are made to feel so special and welcomed and most importantly relaxed!…
I was privileged to spend a week at Blue Marlin with my large family, and if I could live the rest of my days there I would. It is just amazing! The staff was incredible and accommodating to our house full of children and adults, and the beach is just breathtaking. We feasted and relaxed and had tons of fun! The privacy is priceless, especially coming from NYC, and it's such a treat to take a nap on a hammock under the cabana in the ocean breeze. I have spent time at Blue Marlin and Coquina in the past, and it is definitely my "get away" of choice. I can't wait to get back!
I'm almost afraid to tell everyone how much we love this place! The chef, the view , the villa and the grounds are awesome. Don't book it our week. I really want to bring our grandbabies to play on the beach. Wow!
