This is our third time staying here. We always vacation here on our anniversary. This is the best place on earth to enjoy a view of the future view of the new earth. Elaine and peter personally care for not only Jean and I but all staying here. this place is the cleanest of all and most beautiful of all we ever visit and includes Honolulu Hawaii. If you want to getaway form it all and enjoy true peace, beautiy, and all, we recommend this place. Each morning after rising from a "REAL BED" Elaine and Peter will serve you a "REAL BREAKFAST" (Your choice)

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent beautiful!

My boyfriend and I just got back from Montego Bay a little over a week ago and spent three nights here. And ever since we returned, we've been telling all of our friends about how the best part of the trip was the B&B we stayed at. Peter and Elaine are extremely gracious hosts. They call each evening to take your breakfast order for the next morning and offer Jamaican or American food depending on your preference. They were also very helpful in terms of assisting us with planning a day trip to Ocho Rios, since we had indicated we wanted to go there.

They are genuinely invested in making sure their guests enjoy Jamaica. On the day we were leaving our flight wasn't until late afternoon, so they were kind enough to allow a slightly later checkout which gave us one last chance to go to the beach.

The room and bathroom we stayed in was very spacious, and the views are simply breathtaking. Each morning you eat breakfast out by the pool under a shaded area with a view of the water and island. The walk to the beach is just over 5 minutes and there are lots of shops, restaurants and bars that are just minutes away. Everything is very clean and quiet too, so it's nice to come back and just relax and sleep well after a long day out and about.

I can't imagine anyone being disappointed.

We stayed 4 days at the Vista de la Bahia before our cruise and it was perfect all the way, from our beautiful spacious room, to the great personalized breakfast (most delicious omelette), including delicious fruit plate and best coffee! They accommodated early check-in as our flight was arriving in Montego Bay very early in the morning as well as arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport. We highly enjoyed the pool and beautiful sunsets daily overlooking the ocean, so relaxing, exactly what we both needed! Great location, only minutes away from the hip strip, restaurants and beach. Very helpful and friendly hosts (Peter & Elaine) as well as all the staff that do everything to ensure a pleasant holiday. We visited some friends for a day who were at a resort nearby and were so glad to have stayed at the Vista de la Bahia instead! This B&B is 5 stars in our books and we highly recommend it and did not hesitate to share our experience with people we met on our cruise as well as friends and family!!

We spent a very restful and pleasant week at this beautiful property overlooking the coast of Montego Bay. The home is very tastefully decorated, and the grounds are kept spotless. We had a beautiful room with a large en suite. Our hosts, Peter and Elaine put on a fabulous breakfast each morning with our choices of traditional Jamaican dishes (ackee and saltfish and wonderful fried dumplings, among others) or more North American fare (omelets or French toast). We found the breakfasts so hardy we were happy to skip lunch and head out for an earlier supper.

There are good restaurants within and easy walking distance and many clubs long the Hip Strip, if that's your thing. We found quiet afternoons beside the pool, reading a sipping a beverage a pleasant way to pass some time. Doctor's Cave beach is just a few minutes walk away of it's the surf you want.

Recommend this place to any couple who want to let down in a peaceful, beautiful setting.

This place and the people that own and operate it are by far the kindest, most loving and warm people I have ever met. You are greeted with a freshly squeezed glass of juice or limeade. You are then given a tour of the property and escorted to your room. The rooms are by far nicer than most luxury hotels. This is their home and that's exactly how you feel, like you are temporarily living a life of luxury and total bliss. I was there during new years 2014 and there was bad weather in the U.S. and all flights were either canceled, rescheduled, or overbooked. I ended up being stuck in Ja. for an additional 6 days, with the FLU! Peter and Elain (Inn Keepers) along with Audrey (house attendant) nursed me back to health with their care and love. They took such good care of me and made sure I was comfortable until I could get back home. I've stayed in both places they have which are across from each other for over 10 years now, sometimes twice a year and it just gets better with time. You will not find another place like this in Ja. I highly recommend this B&B. It's breathtaking views along with the superior customer service is truly what vacation is all about.

Booking a flight to Jamaica.....$548.00
Taking a cruise to Jamaica......$899.00

Staying at Polkeris B&B.......PRICELESS!!!

If you're traveling to Montego Bay, you MUST stay at the Polkerris. It was a little strange that the people in Customs didn't seem to know that the Polkerris exists, and that was a small cause for concern. But I can assure you that the Polkerris does exist, and it is a WONDERFUL place to stay. The breakfasts were amazing and delicious, but more than the food, the view while eating breakfast is breathtaking. The inn keepers - Jeremy and his wife, were absolutely delightful. They were pleasant and helpful. We adored every minute of our stay!

Polkerris has amazing view of the ocean. All the pictures here are very true.
The walk to beach and hip strip is 10 minutes. Breakfast is amazing.
All staff there are incredibly friendly and make sure you are completely comfortable and satisfied. I will not bother looking for other places to stay in Jamaica. Polkerris is perfect!
The taxi and tourism company that work along side Polkerris are wonderful also. They make your stay in Jamaica the best it can possible Jamaica.
