I booked Katamah after reading reviews and checking ratings online. Once booking and paying IN FULL I was then advised breakfast was no longer available at the hotel, but there were lots of restaurants in the area. When we arrived, we could not access he property as there was no buzzer.. Although a sign saying press buzzer! Eventually we were... More

I am sorry & we did feel very badly that we didn't have any cold drinks at that time and that the buzzer wasn't working, unfortunately we did have a fire that took the kitchen less than 2 weeks before this guest stayed with us. Since then we have set up in-room fridges, and have 3 kitchenettes, garden dining area... More

Katamah is a literally the best place I've ever been too. I've been to Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Spain, the Dominican Republic and this by far is the best place I've had the honor of staying at! It's right by the beach and its the only place where you can actually swim safely! Talk about prime real-estate! The Cabins, Rooms and... More

On our Jamaica Journey we spend our Chrismas time 2015 at Katamah five days long. It is a very nice property face to face with the ocean. You can enjoy the sunset while you cool down with a red stripe. Our arrival was unfortunately a bit bleakly. there was a small hello by the cleaning ladies but no one who... More

This hotel was truly amazing. Although it was a short stay, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was true to the pictures on the website. The bed was so comfy and the room was clean. We did not miss having a TV as the whole feel of the hotel was relaxed almost like a retreat. We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings including... More

Have you ever been so stressed out from work, you just wished you could go to an island away from everything? Well, you may not be away from everyone, but this is definitely the place. About 3.5 hours from Kingston, this is a hotel on the beach where you can play with the rough waves during the day, sleep with... More

Had a wonderful time at Katamah with my girlfriend. The property and the location are first-rate. You could skim stones into the water from the beach terrace. All of the staff where very helpful and made us feel at home.

Every time I've stay at Katamah it feels like home away from home. It is a soothing and peaceful and so very gorgeous. The sound of the ocean while I sleep in the comfort of the Cabin always puts me in instant relaxation mode. I highly recommend this place to nature lovers who also appreciate clean and friendly environments.

We stayed at Katamah for 2 nights in one of the cabins. it was very near the waterfront and we enjoyed listening to the waves.Our little cabin was cute and the bed was good. We did not have a mosquito net with us and unfortunately bugs/mosquitos bothered us. It would make the room even more pleasant if there was a... More

We spent a few days in Treasure Beach before a family wedding in Montego Bay. Treasure Beach was relaxing and beautiful! While at Katamah we saw incredible lightning shows each night, relaxed on the hammocks, and enjoyed delicious breakfast at Smurf's each morning. We took a fabulous cooking class at Jake's and ate the best meal of our trip at... More

My experience started out not so great, a reservation confusion, but once I got there, everything and everyone I met was super accommodating, very friendly with great service. The rooms was beyond my expectations (except for bugs, but they come with the environment). I'm obsessed with the bathroom.. The king size bed was very comfortable, the view is amazing, the... More

Katamah is a unique vacation experienced, more like living in a small village in the Caribbean where you get to interact with the local community on a daily basis. You can buy your fruits and vegetables from the local farmers who visit the property regularly, fisherman that sell daily catches it fish and lobster, and local craftsmen offering everything from carvings to hand made shoes. A small resort in the heart of the Treasure Beach, on the South Coast of Jamaica, best known for its unspoiled beaches, laidback locals and warm friendly vibe. With only 6 rooms we are small enough to know everyone staying with us and we do our best to cater to all of your vacation needs. Although located in the center of town, our rooms at Katamah are shady, quiet and secluded in a garden lush flowering plants. This paradise on the beach is the perfect retreat for a restful relaxing vacation. Rent one of our bikes and explore the other bays of Treasure beach like Great Bay with walking trails lined with caves and succulent plants. Or beautiful Old Wharf with its for shady trees I am calm waters. Go fishing with the locals, kayaking, hiking, or simply unwind in one of our hammocks by the beach and watch the sun set into the ocean. Choose from any of our different accommodations, like one of our cabins on the beach, or our stylish lovely rooms in our Moroccan Villa.
