I had the pleasure of vacationing in Treasure Beach , Jamaica this past October. Beautiful people,gorgeous beaches, excellent lodging and delicious food. Any one traveling to Treasure beach...Jakes ( lodging ) should be your destination. They go that extra mile for you.
For our 1st time coming to Jamaica we have chosen JAKEs and it was absolutely the right choice. This area is such authentic in the way of how the Jamaican spirit still live with such great food (see my rating for Jakes dining), nice cottages with sea view and very good service.
Most of the people work there for many years which shows for me that the hotel is doing things right.
They offers great help for travels like Pelican bar or others.
It’s absolutely quite here and far different from spots like Negril. It’s worth to spent the ~ 3hrs going south.
We will come back for sure!!
