My boyfriend and I recently stayed here(August) and all I can say is amazing!!!!!
When the big gates open you drive into a hidden gem! If your looking for a hotel with privacy and amazing views of the ocean, this place is for YOU... Oh did I mention the private beach!!!?? The staff was great!!!! The food was great!! The drinks were great!! We will be back and hopefully we can rent the entire resort with our family and friends!!! One of the owners (Steve) was their the week we stayed and he was awesome, very friendly and inviting!! Thanks Steve!!!

Geejam was perfect for us in every way. friendly staff, unobtrusive, lovely setting, chilled bar, everything we were looking for after the hustle of Ochos Rios. The private beach is really nice but the local beaches - especially Winnifreds - are stunning. I think its worth pointing out one or two things that more discerning travellers may be annoyed about though. Geejam is CRAZY expensive and we were told that the minibar in the room is replenished every day for free. Sadly we were there four nights and it wasnt restocked once which I think is a real shame as water and a beer and some peanuts are not expensive and are much needed after a long day at the beach. Also the furniture in the room is a little worse for wear for a five star resort. These things as I say did not dampen our experience at all as we are very laid back but considering the price, i just thought it was worth mentioning to others! The food is again very expensive for what it is but very tasty and the restauarnt is a lovely setting. Local food is great - I definitely recommend Woody's for the most amazing beef and plantain burgers and could red strip for about a fiver! ALso make sure you go river rafting - the experience is amazing, so relaxing and the food cooked up on the river's edge was one of the best meals we had in Jamaica. Second only to the Jerk at Boston Bay. AMAAAAAZING. I took home some bottles of the jerk sauce as its the best I have ever had. Big shout out to Jason, the bar manager at Geejam who is such a star, so friendly and really looked after us.

Dear CharliSays,

Thank you, not only for your 5 star review, which is gratifying, but also your constructive criticism, which is equally important to us, as we continue to work extremely hard to try and ensure everything is always perfect for our guests.

I’m sorry to hear that your mini fridge was not re-stocked, and just wished you would have mentioned this at the time, so we could have responded accordingly.
Bottled water, like the Internet, is always complimentary, throughout the property.

Both Jon and myself are never more than a phone call away, in the unlikely event that something you need, is not dealt with in a timely fashion.

And a special thank you from Jason, our bar manager, who appreciates the shout out.
1love.
Steve

The hotel was not what i imagined. Much smaller and private. It felt like we had the hotel to ourselves. It felt more like a home instead of a hotel which i really liked because i hate a "touristy" atmosphere. Sanwood was an amazing house. Styled in an understated but cool, trendy way. Lots of interesting books and magazines to read. Lots of good films on the apple tv. Useful to have board games, which me and my brother and sister used. However pieces were missing from most of them so could do with replacing these.
Service was good, not the fastest service i've ever had but it didnt matter because we were in a relaxed environment and the service were so friendly and chatty and had a lot of personality.
the location was incredible very very lush it was like paradise. so much beautiful vegetation and beaches. good food and friendly people. untouched and touristy which i liked.
only thing that i found a little annoying was that you had to drive to get everywhere. and the 2 hour drive from kingston airport was pretty awful because i get very car sick!
my favourite parts of the trip were the rafting and going to the blue lagoon. frenchmans cove was beautiful.
the geegam beach itself is very beautiful and staying in the hotel was very comfortable and relaxing.

didnt know what to expect, but it was definitely one of most relaxing and beautiful holidays; geejam is set in lush tropical landscape, only 5 mins walk down to its own private and peaceful beach. it was a perfect base to explore all the natural wonders of the world - the breathtaking beaches, only 5 - 20 mins drive away provided plenty for us to do each day. we loved the rafting down the rio grande, the boston jerk chicken - all perfectly set up by Geejam, so that it was all effortless. the service is personal and all the staff friendly and welcoming. outstanding quality of accomodation and cleanliness - would highly recommend it. loved the complimentary mini bar, the films, the complimentary rides to the local beach. what more can i say?

Room Tip: as a family of 5 we took the 3 bedroom villa, but the wooden cabins for 2 looked full of character

We stayed in the Ska cottage which is really more like a tree house with an amazing decking and hot tub. It's right up in the trees so very green with an amazing view down to the ocean. It really is Place to chill-out and relax.

The room itself was very high quality with a great shower and fittings. The apple tv was really cool with hundreds of movies and thousands of songs to play. There is also AirPlay so I was able to play content from my iPhone onto the big screen.

Given the owners are in the music business the whole place has a rock star feel to it. The recording studio, music library in the bush bar, and the live performances by the inhouse band The Jolly Boys make for a very cool stay indeed.

Incidentally we really loved the The Jolly Boys, a Jamaican mento band, who've just toured Europe with Shade.

Geejam is a unique hotel situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Jamaica with lots of opportunities to have fun: Enjoying the nice restaurants, bars and shops in Port Antonio, a trip to the Blue Mountains, boat tour across the Blue Lagoon, fantastic beaches like San San and Frenchmen's Cove (transfer from the hotel is complimentary for both).

The hotel itself embodies cosiness, great service and luxury without pretention. The rooms are confortable, stylish and technically very well equipped (IPod station, Apple TV, your own personal cell ...) without omitting the basics of a top class hotel (great bed, modern bathroom with steam shower, Jacuzzi and of course a terrace with a gorgeous view). The service is excellent at all levels and all employees are extremely friendly and always up for a chat or great advice on various activities. The hotel managers are also very nice and do everything they can to assure that their guests have a pleasant stay including the organsiation of great trips (for example to the nearby Trinity castle) or even concerts (the Jolly Boys live at Geejam's Bushbar was definitely one of the holiday highlights). The food and drinks at the Bushbar are also of very good quality (large breakfast choice with a different Jamaican breakfast every day, changing diner card every evening incorporating traditional local ingredients and of course excellent cocktails).

Geejam is all about relaxation to its perfection with its comfortable and modern bungalows where you simply have the feeling of being alone in the world, its nicely arranged private beach (including snorkeling and canoeing equipment) and the coolest restaurant / bar with a superb view (the Bushbar of course) and even more importantly about music with its own state-of-the-art recording studio and the huge selection of songs and albums (available at the Bushbar and in each of the rooms).

In short: Geejam has everything to render your stay in Jamaica perfect!
