My husband and I stayed at Errol's for Spring Break on 7 Mile Beach. We enjoy hostels because you can meet up with other traveller's, you get taken care of more personally by the caretakers, and also have a more low key time on a budget. This is exactly what we got from Errol's! When we arrived, Mikey the cook helped us to our clean and comfortable room. The place is not fancy at all, but rather cozy and bare bones for having maximum fun! We stayed in the cottage closest to the outdoor kitchen, and was very pleased with our room- A.C. if we wanted, fan, very spacious and clean double room and bathroom, hot water, and a patio. A walk from there a few feet leads to the outdoor open air dining area and 24 hour bar right on the sand. Errol used to run the hostel but passed away, so now it is run by extended family members, so it's very laid back and quaint, and they know the value of taking care of 'their own', and as guests my husband and I were included in their extended family for our stay. Mikey, Garfield, Patroy, Lloyd, Janet, Lawyer, and Andre took very good care of us. The food was superb, serving local dishes at any hour, and the bar was always thumping out the island ragga jams, where you could dance a bit or just chill out. The staff was always looking out for us with the occasional hustler on the beach, and also with helping us rent cars and mopeds, take day trips to wherever on the island with other hostellers, and get us anything else we ever needed the first time we asked. The location is excellent, right in the middle of 7 Mile Beach. We were trying to avoid the crazy day time partying of Spring Breakers, and we did just that by lying on our plot of beach, and taking walks through the other plots of beaches along the stretch. At night they helped us find the local night life, and showed us around to live ragga bands and parties on the beaches at Alfred's, the Jungle, and Rick's Cafe. We also got 30 minute excellent massages right on the sand by Salome, and any extra help we needed from the resident beach rastas hanging about. We had much more than just a vacation at Errol's-- the people of Jamaica were truly a loving and fun bunch, and the family at Errol's gave us one of our best vacations of our lives. Not only that, but they made us feel safe and as friends, and hope to keep in touch in the future.
