Jakes is a charming seaside resort nestled in the quaint fishing village of Treasure Beach, offering a mix of adobe-like cottages, guestrooms and villas. Set in the relaxed beauty of Jamaica's sandy south coast landscape, the accommodation is bright and bohemian.
Deluxe rooms are typically large and have good sea views, generous double beds, air conditioning, a sun deck or terrace and an outdoor daybed. The garden cottages are surrounded by vegetation and the ocean front options are supremely private, opening out onto wooden decks that look straight out to sea.
Activities available include exploring the wetland preserve of the Grand Morass in search of crocodiles, manatees and birdlife, spending a day treating yourself to an aqua-massage under the YS Falls, and hopping into a motor launch to head out to the Pelican Bar, a rickety shack built on a shoal almost a mile from shore for a rum or a Red Stripe in the middle of the sea.
