“A Relaxing Getaway”
Reviewed January 30, 2009

Stayed here is late December for 3 nights and was really impressed!
I was looking for a relaxing getaway and I received just that.
The guesthouse is run by a mother and daughter team and is located in a residential neighbourhood.
Authentic Jamacian breakfast and dinner was served- delicious!

There is a great swimming beach just minutes away and Marcia one of the owners is more than willing to arrange different excursions on the Island if you are interested.

Overall, very pleasant, clean, comfortable accomodations.
I highly recommend it and will definitely go again!

  • Liked — Great food, sun and nearby calm swimming beach.
  • Disliked — It was a hefty $50 US cab ride to the guesthouse.
  • Stayed December 2008, traveled with family

On the internet the pictures are gorgeous however what you see is not what you get. What they don't tell you is this place is in the bushes plus in order to use the "hot tub" you need to pay a fee($10), a simple sandwich costs $10 (bread and cheese etc).

We did not feel safe at all plus after dinner one basically had to go to sleep as it seemed everything was shut down by 8 pm. We made the mistake of asking for some hot tea upon arrival to the Retreat which they gave to us in a covered bowl of sugar only to our dismay when we lifted the bowl ....we saw ants running away!

The business phone is also the "managers" cell phone #. Bottom line, when we got there we wanted to leave as this is not where we wanted to spend the rest of our vacation. BEWARE of booking this place. If you made a mistake and booked it the "manager" will not return your money for the time you did not stay.

Please note when we stayed we found out this place is not approved by the Jamaican Tourist Board for guests. (We found this out the hard way, as we spent a portion of our vacation trying to get some money back and had to go to the Jamaican Tourist Board plus the police station however the "manager" refuses to give any money (We told her to take the money for the time spent and the cancellation fee and just return a portion however she still refuses.

In the end we left this place and went elsewhere and had a fabulous time in Jamaica despite the above.

  • Liked — When we arrived to the Retreat we immediatley wanted to leave.
  • Disliked — The location-we felt unsafe
  • Stayed January 2009, traveled as a couple

This place is the best place to stay in Jamaica to me. I've been to Jamaica over 12 times and always stayed at a Villa but this guest house knocks them all out of the box!!! The pice is grat. the food was amazing. It's a family own place and MOM is the cook!! WoooHoo!!! You can't ask for more love in your cooking than moms. Breakfast was included and was a BIG jamaica style breakfast. Melt in your mouth good. The veiw from the jacuzzi was amazing. you felt like you where staying at your best friends house. they made sure you had a good time. The beach was the best ever. Just what your looking for. Peace and it was about 10 people there. The locals let us taste breadfriut they where cooking and it was ummmummm good. a must see guesthouse and beach!!!!!! I will and Photos soon of our trip!
