“A hidden oasis that restores your soul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

The first time my friends and I visited Rafjam it was by pure luck that we found it but now it is our go-to place every time we visit the Blue Mountains. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else now! This little bed & breakfast situated in a a valley surrounded by lush foliage and a flowing river revives the spirit and makes you want to just take a moment to just BE. It is the ultimate relaxation destination. Susan and her family are warm and accommodating and makes all guests feel like a part of the family as they go above and beyond to make sure that the guests have everything they can ask for. Home cooked meals, cozy rooms and plenty of Blue Mountain coffee makes you feel like you are visiting relatives in their private house and we always have so much fun as we meet people from all around the world here. It is a little tricky to get to the place since the roads can be challenging but it is all worth it. Susan and her family have become our friends and we cannot wait to return!!

Friends and I found this place by accident . Starlight messed up our booking and what a blessing in disguise.
We phoned Susan and she took us in late one Wednesday night in Jan. She and her staff met us at the gate and welcomed us with open arms rented the cottage for one night then we had 2 bedrooms the next day. This is a hidden treasure, I've always wanted to visit Blue mountain never knew what to expect and oh boy , I must say I was very pleased, The grounds are beautiful, the staff are very helpful and friendly .Definitely going back .

Room Tip: the cottage.

It really felt like i left home and found home right back everyone was so friendly. My favourite part of the trip was the waterfall we had all to ourselves. I didn't want the overcrowding of the all-inclusives and i found that at Rafjam's. Thanks Susan and the entire family for the warm service

Rafjam is the most amazing place I've ever been. Located up the blue mountains it resides in a nature filled lot with the most beautiful view. The rooms are super cozy and food is amazing. The staff was extremely personable and truly made the stay more enjoyable. If you want to be away from the noise and bask in the beauty of Jamaica, this is the place to stay.

Incredibly friendly staff, beautiful scenery, and an unforgettable experience. Rafjam is a welcome change of pace from the typical beach and ocean vacation. I would highly recommend this trip. Be sure to check out the Rasta villages if you get the chance!

This trip was one of the best trips of my life. It provides a very cozy at home experience with fun staff members. They were able to provide us with an experience that many tourist don't get to see. Wish I could have stayed longer!!

I stayed in Rafjam for a day. Right from the start of the travel coordination to dropping me to airport, Susan was very considerate and caring. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The sound of the stream that runs through Rafjam soothes you to sleep. Also the backyard pool is a not to miss experience. Food is good, though a bit costlier than I expected. Overall I had a truly enjoyable experience. Thanks to Susan, Crystal, Yanek

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Deep in the valleys of the Blue Mountains, Rafjam Bed and Breakfast offers an authentic, local Jamaican experience like none other. Rafjam is located up the B1 highway from Papine in Kingston. After about a 30 minute drive and arrival to the town of Red Light, turn right on Hopewell Road and drive all the way down the cul-de-sac. Nestled between two rivers, the guest accommodations are perched high above the natural scenery: the cascading river in our backyard or the fleeting glimpse of a hummingbird sipping rain water from the petals of a heliconia. The climate in the mountains drifts from sun to cloud all day, with scattered rain. Rafjam offers an ideal spot to soak in the soothing Jamaican sun while not getting scorched along the way. You can always jump into one of the many freshwater pools on the property to cool off, or climb up to the 15 foot waterfall just five minutes away. Born and raised in Springdale Cove, Susan inherited her parent's house and decided to refurbish. Eager to offer a taste of paradise to everyone, she opened these magnificent Blue Mountain Cottages with the help of her husband. This vivacious, real Jamaican lady and her professional, laid back team will welcome you and provide whatever you need for you to enjoy your stay. Rafjam's kitchen serves a variety of succulent Jamaican and international cuisines. Our team includes world renowned chefs who evoke their Caribbean, North and South American, and European palates with their culinary creations. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available. A special request? We will cook according to your taste. Many of the items we serve are grown organically right here in our own backyard or acquired directly from local farmers. A global, eco-friendly gustatory experience in the quiet heart of the Blue Mountains.Five star service in a family setting... you will surely be back again! Rafjam: service beyond expectation... Rafjam also has a hostel in Kingston towN,for those of you who wants to stay closer to Kingston for night life, beach, etc. ... more   less
