A Very Different Jamaican Experience

Once arriving in Montego Bay, imagine a 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive on very narrow roads through Jamaica's mountainside. 

Along the way you wander through shanty towns off the beaten track where goats and cattle freely roam. Treasure Beach will expose you to the "real" Jamaica, very far off the typical tourist track. 

At Jakes Hotel in Treasure Beach you can choose from several types of beachfront accommodations: rooms, cottages, and villas. And you can even opt for a 3 bedroom historical home fully staffed with housekeeper, cook, gardener, and caretaker.

Every room offers view of the ocean or garden. Enjoy active tours, day trips with Jake's experienced guides, and then wind down at Jakes Driftwood Spa. Two popular restaurants - Jakes Country Cuisine and Jack Sprat offer fresh local cuisine, and of course in-room dining is available upon request.

Every room has mini fridges and/or full kitchens, grocery delivery service is available upon request, and all the oceanfront and garden-view cottages are equipped with minibar, coffee-maker, and iPod dock. Nanny service is avaiable with a 24 hour notice, and Jakes will provide a fully stocked picnic basket for island excursions. 

Most of the rooms are not equipped with televisions or telephones 

For those travelers who need to stay in touch wireless DSL service is available in the media room, lobby, and both restaurants. Also a desktop computer is available for guest use in lobby. The comfortable media room serves as a gathering spot and features a large screen flat TV, CD/DVD collection, and board games. The unique on-site gift shop offers local craft items, souvenirs, Jamaica-branded T-shirts, beach gear, and all the travel essentials such as toiletries, bug spray, disposable cameras, etc.
