This was my 3rd year at Jakes. From the moment you arrive at Montego Bay airport and someone greets you, you feel like family. EVERYONE is so incredibly nice it's tough to go back to the rest of the world! Where to start? Wr he folks running jakes are not only involved in the community, the small town of treasure... More

Had the Octopussy....great suite, Relatively basic but functional and more than adequate for the setting. Spectacular view and the waves were extraordinary. The private outside shower simply put you at one with nature, taking a nice warm shower with the wave action in the background...doesn't get more heavenly. Not to mention Yvonne, the resident manager and her staff....very warm, welcoming... More

My friend and i traveled to Jamaica for an island tour hitting all 14 Parishes with Jakes being our second stay for two days. We could not have dreamed of a better experience than Jakes. The unbelievable room by the water with the outdoor massive shower with the most remarkable view of the Caribbean Sea. We were so blown away,... More

We honeymooned at Jakes, stayed in the one of the three Octopussy cottages on the water. It was fabulous from check-in to check-out. We hated to leave. And we've raved about this place ever since. Hope to return for a special anniversary one day.

Jake's Hotel is located on the south side of Jamaica, a three hour drive over the mountains from the mega-resorts of Montego Bay. This is a great place to unwind and unplug. We stayed in one of the Octopussy cottages. The ocean was about 20 feet from the end of our bed. The open upper deck of the cottage was... More

We're just back from a brilliant two weeks staying at Pelican Villa. A beautiful house, right by the beach with great rooms, a gorgeous pool and fantastic staff, it was all perfect. The house has such a cool vibe, upmarket, but with understated chic in large and beautiful grounds. House keeper Jennifer and her team keep the place immaculate and... More

This is my first review to write ever because of how frustrated I was staying at this place and hopefully after reading this other travelers will be fairly informed. The only good part of our stay was the breathtaking ocean view and beautiful beach. First off the hotel is poorly managed and does the bare minimum to get by. It... More

Let me start by saying that our stay at Jakes was the second half of our Jamaica trip. The first half was spent at The Caves in Negril, which is a lot more expensive, but also it's all inclusive. Jakes does not compare to The Caves and we didn't expect it to. We wanted the off-the-beaten-path type of trip and... More

What can I say, a wonderful Anniversary stay by myself and my beautiful bride was had at Jakes'...Beautiful weather, excellent staff, food, EVERYTHING. There is something magical about that place...they say some of us, the one's that really feel the urge to return to the ocean (some say from whence we came...), gravitate towards it, and I find this feeling...

Located in a quaint and intimate village on the south coast of Jamaica, this hotel property really is exceptional. Like most businesses, and especially those engaged in the hospitality sector, it depends primarily on the strength of its leadership team. I quickly noted that the leadership team at this small hotel property rivals, in my experience, some of the finest... More
