Just the tonic that we needed to put us back on our feet. James and Mary are the perfect hosts. Nothing seems too much for them and staff to go the extra mile. We were well informed about outside events and arrangements were made to transferred us to and from. The location was splendid, with lush vegetation, private beach and...

James and Mary are gems! This was our second time at Wilks Bay and the team did not disappoint. We stayed in the 3 bedroom house, which is just beautiful. It truly is a place of relaxation. Every need is accomodated and considered. The pool is well kept and clean and we LOVE the private beach access. Our 6 and...

Needed some down time and was lucky to have this gem recommended to me. From the start we were made to feel like a part of James and Mary's family. They were so warm and welcoming! The Villa was just lovely! We were in the Guava apartment and lucky enough to have the fabulous Angela cooking for us. She was...

Hands down the best travel and vacation experience of our lives. World's best, pristine, un-touristed beaches, lush rainforests and vegetation and most remarkable, generous and warm people on the planet. Every second, minute, hour and day of our stay was extraordinary. Wilks Bay is where you can truly experience Jamaica. We experienced the exotic produce, fresh fruits and vegetables and...

Mary and James could not have been more welcoming on our second visit to Wilks Bay and went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed the Jolly Boys and Vinyl Night as well as putting on a spontaneous reggae concert for us! I do believe the beaches either side of Wilks Bay are the most beautiful in Jamaica, and I...

The absolute best! Hands down the nicest, best run hotel in Jamaica. The setting is stunning the water is crystal clear & the owner James & Mary are some of the nicest around. I stayed for ten days & I did not want to leave. I miss my cook Sita and her excellent local dishes like crab curry or all...

My family of four had a wonderful week-long stay at Wilks Bay. I felt inclined to define the word paradise to my five year-old as a result of our trip, including visits to the beaches within walking distance of the resort. "You see these perfectly turquoise beaches, the calm and warm water. Notice how all our meals are served to...

This place is just perfect! All the other reviews sum it up so well I don't really know what to add... we were so well looked after by James, Mary and their staff.

I would give Wilks Bay 10 stars if I could. This place is wonderful! Fun, relaxing, excellent food, incredible people! James, Mary and all of the staff are fantastic!

As previous reviewers have stated, this property the people who make it work -- Mary and James and their amazing daughter, provide visitors with a dream vacation for those looking for a taste of the "real Jamaica." Our housekeeper, Angela stated it perfectly. The people who work and live there are family and every part of our stay was incredible....
