I took my girlfriend on a surprise trip to Jamaica and we stayed in the Queen Room at the Polkerris. The grounds are absolutely stunning, breathtakingly so and the staff are very warm and friendly. I actually gasped when I saw it. Staying there was like being among family. It was also nice to meet the other guests during breakfast. Our bedroom was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. You literally step outside the room into the swimming pool. The place is about 3mins walk to the 'hip strip', (there is a shortcut for polkerris and vista de la Bahia guests that take you directly to it) the main tourist spot in Montego bay. It is also very close to the fantastic Dr Caves Beach.
The view from the balcony, where breakfast is served, is sublime and looks directly onto Montego Bay. Everyday I tried a different breakfast from French toast to traditional Jamaican dishes and they were all delicious. The coffee was great. The place is very secure and feels very safe - there is a security system in place to get onto the grounds, locks on the doors and the rooms all contain a safe. The maid was also fantastic, friendly and very professional. Jeremy and Clarissa were both very kind and friendly. After our stay with them we spent a few days at a regular 2 star hotel in Ocho Rios and the at a five star all inclusive (CSA) in Negril. The Polkerris was by far my favourite spot. Beautiful, charming, cosy and friendly.
I would highly recommend this place to couples 30yo +, romantic getaways, honeymoons and for families.
We will definitely be returning.
