“Fabulous place”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We stayed for two days and wished we could have stayed longer. Its is a beautiful property with stunning views of Montego Bay. Very close to the shops, bars and beach its an ideal place to stay. Our room was tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and had comfy beds. It was so clean and well maintained, we kept singing its praises! Lovely air conditioned room, refrigerator and security box. The property was very well secured with security keys provided to guests to enter main gates and our rooms main and terrace doors.
As for the owners Jeremy and Clarissa, they were lovely, friendly and caring people. Our daughter was feeling very unwell and when we asked there advice they were most helpful. We will always appreciate their personal help and attention.
Breakfast by the way was so tasty, with a fruit platter and then a choice of Jamaican, American or English or a mix n match and good sized portions. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would most definatley stay again when returning to Jamaica.

My father and I stayed with the Scudamores at their charming B&B from 1/5/13 to 1/12/13. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Peter and Elaine and shown to our immaculate and spacious room. The B&B is designed in such a way that it feels rich and push but still cozy. The outdoor patio and pool are stunningly set against the ocean. Having breakfast outside and gazing out on the ocean view was one of my favorite experiences of my stay. I echo Chris Tobias' suggestion to look into transportation options are at least to not take the first driver suggestion and to make sure that you negotiate the price of the ride before accepting. I had a problem with mosquitoes at night so I suggest bringing some spray just in case you also have the kind of blood that mosquitoes like to dine on. I loved the short walk to Doctor Cave's Beach which I favored over the beaches in Negril.

We stayed 15 days at Polkerris. Lovely property overlooking the ocean, very well kept, and location is excellent only minutes away from the airport. Located just up the hill within walking distance from "Hip Strip." Room was very spaciuos,clean, with Air condition, large closet, mini refrigerator, safety box, and satellite TV. Beautifully landscaped property with a nice pool and deck area. Dr. Coves Beach is within walking distance. We felt very safe staying here, as the property is very secured. We truly looked forward to breakfast every morning. Breakfast was always lovely, with fresh fruits and juice served outside on the Patio overlooking the beautiful ocean. You get a choice of traditional Jamaican or American breakfast. I got the Jamaican breakfast every morning and I just loved the fried dumplings. Our hosts Jeremey and Clarissa were very nice and friendly, never intrusive and helped make our stay very enjoyable. Clover kept our room immaculate.

I would also recommend the Pelican Restaurant which is family owned and within walking distance from Polkerris. The food is excellent with variety of dishes, and the price is reasonable.

We didn't want to leave on our last day and will definetly retun to Polkerris!!!

This is a great place to stay when visiting Jamaica. It is a perfect place to stay at the beginning or the end of a trip if you are flying out of Montego Bay. It is very convenient and close to the airport. (10 minute drive) It is also close to the 'Hip Strip' which is where a lot of tourist go. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the pool and beautiful view. I loved the breakfast every morning and the pool. The hosts are very kind and helpful. They make the place one of the best places to visit. We would love to come back and would make sure to stay here.

No doubt about it - this is the most beautiful bed and breakfast on the island. Charming and hospitable hosts, a spectacular view and the most delicious breakfasts all add up to a perfect stay. Thanks again for the great times. Mom and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Everyone looked after our every need and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and safe.

We highly appreciated the excellent service, cleanliness and the beautiful view on the bay, while having very fine breakfast by the pool.

Tips:
1. Use access to the main road by walking down within the property (ask the inkeepers).
2. Check alternatives to transport service proposed by the B&B (our driver may not have been the most outstanding one).

My wife and I stayed a week for our anniversary and it was absolutely a dream. The quality and cleanliness of the accommodations is the same as a five star hotel in the United States. The food was the highlight of the stay. You can have American cuisine, but you have to try the Jamaican cuisine as well. Just a couple of blocks away is the "Doctors Cave Beach" which is phenomenal and includes food and drink service. Also close by is the "Pelican Restaurant", and my experience is that everything on the menu is awesome. Before visiting Jamaica I had always heard that you don't feel secure in many places you go. I found the locals to be friendly and never felt insecure in any place we went. The B&B is extremely secure with electronic key entry. If anyone other than guest wanted to come on property it just is not possible. Would recommend again and again and definitely plan on returning.
