I have visited Jakes many times and each time I am more amazed than the last time. The surroundings and vibes are so hip, cool and relaxed. The food is wonderful. The staff attends to every need and want you can imagine.

Its hard not to feel entranced by this artsy, beautiful spot under the trees overlooking the ocean. There was something for everyone in our group on the menu, but the smoked marlin dip was our standout favorite. Yet another reason to stay at Jake's Hotel!

Ate here twice for breakfast and once for dinner. We were big fans of their Jamaican dishes for breakfast - rundown mackerel, saltfish and ackee, callaloo and sailfish. Just as good as Smurf's, though you miss the local color of Smurf's, but better than Smurf's...More
