The rooms are...

We were looking for a 10 day stay after the place we we staying wasn't up to par. It was convenient, and close by so we went with it. It didn't hurt that the surroundings were beautiful as well. The staff is very accommodating and even let us boil our own water for tea. The place could be a bit...

We decided to stay at this guest house on the basis of previous reviews and to see a bit of the real Jamaica. When we arrived we were met by a very courteous man.
