29 days in Jamaica!

by Havel
(Toronto, ON, Canada)


Dear Wellesley:

Thanks again for the lovely emails you send to me and many people across the world, you are doing a great job!

Based on the world cup of football events in Russia, I was unable to reply. I must congratulate you and your lovely wife on your anniversary, I watched the video and man it was beautiful!

Keep up the good work and from me to you, Congratulations are in order.

I visited Jamaica last January and spend 29 days on the island- enjoying up the goodies!

I traveled from Santa Cruz to Buff Bay in Portland via Kingston, I had a great time, but I would like to return during the month of August and my desire is to spend 22 days in St Elizabeth alone.

The only drawback that I have is that I do not know of any hotels in St Elizabeth apart from the Treasure beach hotel. Will you recommend some hotels in the parish that I can stay? I'm surprised that the hotels choice is limited in that parish.

I also recommend your site to many people in Canada and the US, also some German friends that I have, many has visited Jamaica and had a great time.

Many friends asked, why there are no hotels in St Elizabeth, guests would like to avoid the long drive from Montego Bay, Negril, and Kingston when they visited the YS Falls and Black River Safari. Some guest avoid the tour based on the journey traveling. What say you regarding this problem?

Have a great day, take care and smiles always.

Havel

Wellesley's Note
Hi Havel! Thanks a million for your kind words. I'm glad you appreciated the little video we did.

Regarding hotels and accommodation in St. Elizabeth, I totally agree, outside of the hotels in the tranquil Treasure Beach area, there are not a lot of other options.

I reside in the Mobay area (as you probably know) but wanted to find a place to overnight last month-end there. Unfortunately I had to do some digging to find a suitable accommodation, albeit I was looking in and around the Santa Cruz town area.

Having said that, I found a little gem, a small B&B. The owner basically shares her home with guests. It was different for me but really, really lovely, that's what I call, authentic Jamaica.

I promised to do a feature on her so I'll keep you in suspense for now :-).

In the meantime, if you are interested in the hotel in the Treasure Beach area, here are some great options.


  1. 77 West Boutique Hotel
  2. Blossom Bed and Breakfast
  3. Blue Marlin Villas
  4. Calabash House
  5. Golden Sands Guest House
  6. Hotel Memories at Siwind
  7. Irie Rest Guest House
  8. Jack Sprat Shack
  9. Jakes Hotel, Villas & Spa
  10. Katamah Beachfront Guesthouse
  11. Kudehya Guesthouse
  12. Marblue Villa Suites
  13. Moringa Ingadi Village
  14. Pon de Rock
  15. Siwind Guest House
  16. Southview Hotel
  17. Sparkling Waters Villas
  18. Sparkling Waters Villas
  19. Sunset Resort & Villas
  20. Taino Cove
  21. The inn at great bay treasure beach Jamaica
  22. Treasure Beach Hotel
  23. Two Seasons Guest House
  24. Waikiki Guest House
  25. Welcoming Vibes


Until then... take care my friend!
And again, thanks for your time and feedback.

Regards,
Wellesley
