The gorgeous views and deluxe accommodations at GeeJam are only half of the experience. More importantly is the service that Jon and all his staff members provided. We were taken care of as if we had been coming to honeymoon at GeeJam for many years...and thats just what we plan to do! All the staff make it a point to know you personally. Our Saturday night was spent with them at the local club(La Best). Every effort was made to make our trip unique and exciting. There is also plenty of wonderful things to do in Port Antonio, it is a town that is lush, green, and rustic. This experience comes highly recommended.

This was an incredible experience the culmination of the surrounding physical beauty and the beauty that Geejam created makes this an unforgettable journey. They made us forget about words like “no” and “hurry” and introduced us to words like “complimentary”. This is a hotel that provided for our every need, was elegantly designed and had an attention to detail that was beyond impressive. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants great food and the most beautiful beaches you can imagine. Upon arrival we checked in to an undeniably breathtaking bungalow, from that point on we knew that we were about to embark on a perfect, one of a kind vacation. It turned out to be just that.

A combination of the hotel structure, and personal staff (whom you will grow to love individually) are within reach at any given moment by way of personal cell phones provided by hotel management: To contact and be contacted to hotel staff. They will go out of their way to accommodate you with only the best of intentions.
There are several musts on the trip: rafting down the Rio Grande, San San beach, snorkeling and the single-engine plane ride. Rafting down the Rio Grande was the most incredibly relaxing four-hour trip; we stopped for dips in the water and the hotel arranged for home cooked lunch on the shore. The water was crystal clear and we were totally surrounded by nature—it was incredible. San San beach was something to see, we were the only people we saw all day and on the way Owen, our driver, picked us up delicious local fare to eat in our own private picnic, he even stopped at another location to get us desert. For snorkeling, the hotel’s boat took us to a reef where we snorkeled and explored the sea and the famous Blue Lagoon. The plane ride, while sad because we were leaving was special, because of the breath-taking views of the island it allowed for.

Without revealing the entire surprise of the incredible aesthetic of the hotel and its location, we undeniably recommend this experience. We are glad we did not have the cookie-cutter experience of sitting on a beach with a million other people day after day but rather at Geejam everyday was a new adventure allowing us to absorb Jamaica's culture and to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings.

Thank you Jon for your vision, how did you dream of such place. We hope to see you in New York. And thanks to the Geejam staff for your kind hospitality. We will be back to visit again soon.

Geejam aka GeeGEM. We always look for vacation spots off the beaten track where we can truly kick back and relax - Geejam certainly delivered on this aspect. In fact Geejam delivered on every aspect possible, the place and service is absolutely amazing.

Set amidst extraordinary beauty of lush tropical trees and flowers, overlooking the sea, Geejam blends the stunning natural landscape with first class luxury to perfection. We really appreciated the private setting - it is a secluded location where you are able to soak up the nature around you and unwind with ease.

We stayed in the SKA cabin for a week which has a hot tub on the deck. The accomodation is beautifully designed, spacious and comfortable with a fantastic bathroom and fully equipped with state of the art technology - Apple iTV, iPod sync, surround sound system.

On arrival we were given a personal cellphone so at any time we could call for service whether it be for a cocktail to our cabin or a ride down to the beach. We were encouraged to explore the local attractions and we really appreciated that because there are some true hidden treasures in Portland. Frenchmans Cove is one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen on our travels around the world. It has a natural spring that runs into the sea providing crystal clear refreshing water that will most certainly cool you down from the heat of the sun! Winifreds Beach was also one of our favorite spots where we were treated to some delicious jerk chicken by one of the locals. The Blue Lagoon is also a must see.

Back at Geejam we hung out at the Bushbar and had cocktails while watching the sunset. It's a great bar with comfy sofas to lounge on, a pool table and perfect view overlooking the sea. The food was great and having sushi on the menu really made me happy. The staff were extremely kind, they took care of our every need. We were very impressed with the fact that they would personally drive us wherever we wanted to go - and having a cellphone we could simply call when we were ready to be picked up from the beach. They even delivered us a pizza to the beach one day! First class service. We were certainly made to feel at home at Geejam, so much so that we found it extremely hard to leave. But one thing is for sure - we will DEFINITELY be going back and we don't say that about many places.

Thanks so much Jon and everyone at Geejam. We miss you all. See you soon! xxx

We had the pleasure of being some of the first guests to stay at Geejam - so we're really pleased to be able to give you the inside scoop....

Highlights of our trip were the fabulous rooms, amazing views, friendly staff, cook outs on Winifred beach & the Rio Grande, jerk pork at Boston Bay, clubbing in Port Antonio, the stunning Blue Lagoon and the never-to-be-forgotten Frenchman's Cove!

The hotel is set in the rainforest, surrounded by amazing flowers and foliage. Pathways weave up and down, taking you through the trees to secluded terraces, the bar/restaurant and the rooms.

We stayed in the Drum'n'Bass suite at GeeJam - most of the rooms are wicked little detatched cabins, but DnB is different - it's bigger and set below the recording studio, with a stunning terrace looking out across the coastline - an amazing sight to contemplate over breakfast!

The rooms are really well fitted out, with fab bathrooms, steam showers, iPod players, flat-screen TVs, music & movies on demand, mobile phones... and if there's anything else you need, the staff will be more than willing to oblige!

........... and that's true of everything at Geejam - just ask and it'll happen! When we wanted something special for dinner, lost our camera charger or wanted to take a trip... Geejam's staff bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed!

So finally... a great big THANK YOU to Jon, Tkae & the gang - thanks for having us, and look forward to seeing you all again real soon! XXX
