“TAINO COVE, JUST PERFECT!”
Reviewed June 23, 2008

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday at Taino Cove, we had a great time and cannot recommend it enough.
Taino Cove is a beautiful 8 room hotel run by the wonderful Winnie Hylton and staff.
The hotel is immaculately kept, the guest rooms are large clean and simply decorated. (the regular rooms will easily accommodate 2 adults and 1 child and the larger rooms would take 2 adults and 2 children)
The hotel is situated on a very private cove, it is possible to swim there as my boyfriend did but i prefered the much calmer cove a couple of minutes walk away.
The pool was just perfect, large and very clean.
Food was delicious.
The lovely staff will go out of their way to make sure you have a brilliant time.
We went away in dire need of a relaxing holiday and got that and much more.
We will definately be returning and are thinking of booking the whole place and taking our family and friends.
Cant wait to return!

Taino Cove is a best-kept secret for those who want an unspoiled, authentic, non-touristy Jamaican vacation. The Hyltons are gracious hosts and were so accommodating, from the moment we stepped off the plane. The food...OMG. I thought I'd had great Jamaican food here in the States. I've never tasted fish so fresh or fruit so sweet.

There's also a lot to do and see on this side of the island, free of the usual tourist-trap vibe. We went to YS Falls (beautiful), visited the Appleton Rum Plantation...and took a boat over to the Pelican Bar, this crazy-looking hut in the middle of nowhere...IN THE OCEAN!!! It was like being on the set of Water World. Or Pirates of the Caribbean. Lover's Leap is also pretty cool. And there are plenty of places in Treasure Beach to have a bite to eat or just sit and play dominoes, or just chill out. A no-pressure view of the Jamaican countryside and definitely, definitely largely TOURIST-FREE.

Taino Cove is simple and sweet. The folks are friendly, the rooms are clean, the decor is casual with a hint of funk...the food is incredible, the beach is a trail away, and you can pretty much plan to do as much or as little as you want. We went on day trips and also just hung around the pool other days. Can't WAIT to get back there!!!

  • Liked — Friendly staff, no tourists, experienced unspoiled, authentic Jamaican culture.
  • Disliked — Commute from airport (~ 2 hours) but VERY SCENIC w/stops along the way...Taino Cove is WORTH THE DRIVE.

Taino Cove was the most romantic and ideal setting I have seen in Jamaica. This was our 3rd trip to Jamaica and we would return to Taino Cove in a heartbeat. The Beautiful Santa Cruz mountains surround you and crashing waves lull you to sleep. The staff was extraordinary and the owner Winnie Hylton made us feel like part of her family. Each dinner was a culinary surprise and our taste buds yearn for the authentic Jamaican meals prepared for us. Clean large rooms and a courtyard and pool to relax by.

Winnie Hylton makes guests feel right at home in her intimate, beach front hide away. The staff could not have been more attentive, the food was wonderful and the setting serene. It is the perfect spot for a retreat, either an individual spiritual retreat or a small group gathering. There are no distractions from TV or other mind-numbing stimuli. I look to returning to this wonderful little spot!

I've stayed at this resort twice now and had the most relaxing stay both times. The food is wonderful and the staff handles every request. Every day we traveled somewhere new: YS Falls, Lover's Leap, Pelican Bar and Appleton Rum factory. Our driver, Auburn, even took us on a tour through the mountains to see the real Jamaica and meet the people.

Our stay was for seven days and that was too short. We will be returning as soon as possible for more Red Stripe and Rum.

I booked a weekend stay at this hotel - only to be confronted by a nasty, rude email one month before my scheduled trip. The hotel had improperly recorded my reservation for May, not June. The proprietor that contacted me was extremely rude and when I asked for compensation for their mistake and mistreatment they told me I was not welcome at their hotel. I never did stay there and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

Taino Cove is my TOP PICK hands down!!! Lots of privacy, lovely people, good food, excellent treatment, beautiful clean beach nearby & we loved the nearby entertainment. We travel all over the world(4). Our future Jamaica trips will always bring us back to Taino Cove.
