Coral Room - Jakes Hotel

Jakes Hotel Review

Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa is probably the most talked about place to stay in Treasure Beach, Jamaica.

The quintessential bohemian hang-out on the untouched south coast that has grown organically over the last two plus decades as an antithesis to the all-inclusive hotels huddled on the north coast.

Welcome to Treasure Beach -Saint Elizabeth

Welcome to Treasure Beach – Saint Elizabeth

As a long time north coast dweller I have always wanted to visit the south coast of Jamaica, or more specifically the area around Treasure Beach and Black River.

Follow me on this adventure in the next few posts as we start to explore Saint Elizabeth!

Cheese Sub at Fancy Seafood bar and Grill

Fancy Seafood Bar and Grill – Ocho Rios

Fancy Seafood Bar and Grill has great customer service and a clean and cheerful restaurant. Food was delicious and the drinks were cold! Great little spot for lunch or dinner at reasonable prices. Warm Jamaican hospitality. Okay there’s not a nice view, but it still gets a Thumbs Up from me!

Calabash Ital Rastarant – Ocho Rios, Jamaica

If you want to try authentic Jamaican food with a twist, then you must try ‘Ital Food’. Nowadays following a ‘clean diet’ is all the rage, but Ital food has been following these principles since its inception.

JamDung Bar and Grill – Salem, Runaway Bay, Jamaica

All the staff at JamDung Bar and Grill are super friendly and the other patrons make visitors feel welcome. They are open in the daytime and is it a much more sedate affair with a few locals hanging out and taking in lunch or a cool drink.
