This is our report about our 3rd stay in River lodge. It`s the most beautiful place I ever saw in this country. I know nearly every place in 10 years coming to Jamaica but I never saw such a peaceful place. If you want to see the real Jamaica, it´s there. Brigitta and Cox give you the feeling like being...

An old Spanish fort located in a beautiful, rustic, peaceful rasta village on natural unspoiled coast. Locals are very friendly. Highly recommended for people who are not high maintenance and down to earth.

River Lodge is located in Robin's Bay, about 1 hour 30 min from Ocho Rios or Port Antonio. It is a really lovely place, with a nice, friendly atmosphere. Brigitta runs the show very well. It's very cheap, but bear in mind that it is a remote place, so if you don't have a car, you might want to hire...

We went for one night and ended up staying six! The owner, Brigitta Fuchslocher, has made a fantastic budget hotel in an old Spanish pirate fort. Brigitta is welcoming and friendly, as are all the staff. The rooms are enormous, clean and simply but tastefully decorated, with large, comfortable beds. It is situated in a very peaceful/safe rasta community in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A 17th century Spanish pirate fort converted to a rustic travelers inn. The location has sea views and is located on a small river with a swimmable pool. The bed and breakfast was one of the first of its kind in Jamaica and serves a delicious, freshly made breakfast every morning, included in the price of the room. The owners are local and readily interact with guests, giving you insider knowledge of the best spots to go all over Jamaica. Living in the area for a long time, just off a lively Rastafarian community called Strawberry Fields, the locals make their living on fishing and farming. ... more   less
