If you’re looking for the peace, beauty, safety and serenity of the “real” Jamaica (rather than the cloistered all-inclusive resorts) Pimento Lodge is for you. No begging in the community, there were only friendly greetings throughout the town as I went out on my daily 5 mile run… alone, as a woman. It’s a wonderful place to relax, workout, sightsee, and discover on your own [no package tours necessary…but they are available]
Aside from the community’s benefits, Lloyd and Kate, the owners and managers of this very special accommodation are: warm; skilled at what they do; attentive to every detail; talented chefs who prepare delicious prefix HEALTHY meals [very limited traditional Jamaican frying and loads of tropical vegetables, fruits, and local fish]; and designers and builders of a lovely, small scale get-a way site that allows for both privacy and/or socializing. This is a DO NOT MISS destination if you want an opportunity to really see Jamaica at its best.
Not to be forgotten, the greater Portland Parish community is considering sponsorship of a few sporting events, perhaps something akin to Treasure Beach’s well known Triathlon. The tropical northeast of the island would be a special contrast to the arid setting in the country’s southwest corner; it would be worth attending both events just to see the variety of the island.
We’re going back, if only to re-visit the Pimento Lodge…hope to see you there too.
