“Real Retreat in Jamaica”
Reviewed October 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

i reserved one of the 3x cabins for 7x nights in August 2014. The property is completely private, safe and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the nearby town. The tress and gardens surrounding the cabins are beautiful and well kept. Papa Curvin is a delightful host and upon arrival he showed me the decking area and pointed out the meditation cave.
The cabin was very clean and equipped with everything anyone may need. It was the only property during my 3-weeks travelling around Jamaica that provided hot water on demand for bathing.
Grace was very kind and took care of all the housekeeping.
Provisions can be purchased in the little shop right across the road from the property, or you can take a short drive and visit the local market and supermarket opposite for fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. The local vendors were very friendly and assisted with a flat car battery on one of the shopping trips.
Wifi is available although not inside the cabins but it is just a few minutes walk to the main house where there is a strong signal.
If you want a holiday with none stop action then this may not be the ideal place for you. If you want peace, tranquility and meditation then i couldn’t think of a more perfect place to call your base.
The highlight for me was sitting on the decking area in the evenings listening to the sea and star gazing. Bliss.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Real Jamaica to others.

Liked best: The freedom to roam around the property tasting all the various fruits grown there. Enjoyed lying on the deck overlooking the ocean - just relaxing listening to the waves and at nights looking up at the stars and across the ocean.
Liked least: Difficult to say.

“Unbridled Peace”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

When I travel to Jamaica I look for those quiet, rustic places off the beaten path and this time I found the "gem". Real Jamaica was more than what I needed to again experience the taste and feel of JA. Evol, Grace you treated me with care, there for me at every turn as well a allowing me that peace that I was seeking. Curvin it is a piece of heaven and I thank you all for a wonderful vacation. Thanks Chester for my safe journey to and from the airport. I cannot wait to return..All the best Vicki
