If you are looking for a fancy new resort with umbrellas in your cocktails then this is not the place for you.
Frenchmans Cove is perhaps the most beautiful beach in Jamaica, it is perfect for swimming, relaxing, family holidays, lovely walks. I love that it isn't all new and shiny - it just ideal for a delicious and relaxing holiday.
One can self cater in these beautifully designed and very well built big villas that are spaced far apart and have astounding views of dense tropical vegetation and the calm sea, from atop a cliff. The beach is quiet and virtually private and is only a few minutes walk from each one. There is fast wifi in across the property.
It would be a great place to hire the whole property for a wedding or birthday etc.
I didn't see a hotel room but I'm sure they are adequate. Breakfast wasn't lavish but was delicious. The staff were unobtrusive but went out of their way to help. It is recommended to have a car to go to the shops and buy supplies etc. It is just a 2 hour drive or something from Colombo.
I wish I were on this beach right now. A short stay wasn't enough - next time I'm going for a week to really relax.
