“Wonderful holiday!”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

The location was perfect, no molesting no tourist everywhere.
I could spend the day on the beach drinking some coconut water ( freshly picked ) and enjoy the Jamaican sun!
The lady was very friendly also her daughter, the room was great and the food was excellent...
There is nowhere you can have home made food with such quality for such a cheap price!
I loved my vacation and I looking forward to another great time at little spring garden :)!

PLEASE DON‘T GO THERE!! IT WILL RUIN YOUR VACATION!!!

We don‘t recommend this place to anyone for the following reasons:


- Very remote location. There is a dirtroad through the bushes and shrubs leading to the guesthouse. However there are no signs and lanterns, so you better make sure to reach before sundown or have the host arrange the transfer for you.

- The guesthouse is located directly next to the beach. Because it‘s a natural black sanded beach, you will find a lot of wood and other stuff laying around. Unfortunately the beach is not very inviting. (The pictures of the beach on the homepage are very misleading!!)

- Our Host BEVANA (Lothar‘s wife) was VERY UNFRIENDLY and not communicative at all!! She made no effort to even open the gate for us, and welcomed us with a simple “Come in, this is your room“!! In the following, there weren‘t any real conversations or any information about nearby sights and places from her side.

- Unfortunaly the room wasn‘t any better! It was not welcoming at all. When we arrived the room wasn‘t tidy at all. There were spider webs hanging from the ceiling and ants and other critters crawling up and down the walls and floors. At night the insects come into the room from the suurounding bushes. It is nearly impossible to sleep without the mosquito net, which unfortunatly had a lot of holes in it.

- Spring Garden‘s electricity is provided by solar cells. Every night at about 1 or 2 am, the current is suddenly cut off until 8 or 9 am in the morning. That means there is NO LIGHT and the ceiling FAN STOPS WORKING, so it gets OBNOXIOSLY HOT AND STIFLING in the room!!! If you try to get some fresh air by opening the windows, it gets even worse because giant flying bugs, mosquitos and other insects will come in!!

- LOTHAR, the owner, wants a DOWNPAYMENT of half the rate for your stay IN ADVANCE!!! If you decide to leave earlier as planned, like we did, he still insists on the other half!

If you still think it‘s a good place to go on vacation, however here are some pros:

- reasonable prices per night
- located next to a natural beach
- Port Antonio is only 15 mins away by car/taxi

Few months ago, my two kids 16 and 14 years old and me visited Jamaica, and a choose a very nice little guesthouse in port antonio for our vacation, we were looking for a lot of natural and nice experiences and not for a big hotel activities, and we choose the perfect place for it, we were living with a real jamaican family, with also another teenager at home and delicious real jamaican food for dinner every day, the beach was close and we could go to walk and swim every morning and also eat fresh fish in the night with a very nice fire, they helped us to find the best places to visit around and our room at home was very nice and quiet. We really spend very nice time in that lovely place.
