We stayed at Ivahoe's for 4 nights during a recent trip to Port Antonio area. The place itself is quite nice; we were on the top floor with wonderful views of the city and bay down below. Breakfast every morning was delicious and served on a balcony with the same beautiful view. We also enjoyed meeting other travelers there, as well as Albert, with whom we arranged a rafting trip down the Rio Grande. The town, however, is incredibly rundown and might come as a shock to many travelers as the streets and sidewalks, as well as many buildings, were dilapidated and there was lots of garbage everywhere. On the upside, staying in town helped us to learn the ropes of the route taxi system and was within walking distance of a few restaurants.
