“amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2011

I traveled to Tansobak with my husband and a group of friends in January 2011. The house was very comfortable, we were just steps away from the ocean, and there were bicycles available for us to get around town. Not only were Anette, Courtney, and Ritchie amazing hosts, but I felt a warm welcome from the community as well. We are looking forward to our next trip to Tansobak!

We were there early January of 2011. Tansobak has the best staff that cooks amazing meals and offers great hospitality. Swimming, "hammocking" and local exploring were main activities. There's so much to talk about that's difficult to describe, the best word to use would be GREAT.

My friend Cullen and I spent the most wonderful week at Tansobak. We have always stayed at all inclusive resorts and thought we would try something different. I cannot say what a difference this week was for the both of us. We have certainly fallen in love with the people of the island and Annette, Richie and Sophie treated us so well, I feel like they are my extended family. Annette's meals were just fabulous and of course the lobster meal was one I will certainly cherish. Richie is just a gem, always with a big smile on his face and Sophie she is the one who likes to laugh- the party girl! We cannot wait to get bak to Tansobak. We stayed on the first floor and did use the air conditioning for a few of the nights. We cannot wait to book our return visit.

Hi Michelle and Denis:
Just returned from Little Bay and had a great time.
Annette, Sophie and Richie are too great to just put into simple descriptive words. We have made new life long friends.
The food was fantastic and supplimented with Tiki's lunch fare.
The cooldown pool was well used and the weather was perfect even with the occasional rain storm.
I walked every day and went to Little Bay (spent time with Raymond and family) and Brighton Beach, met Cynthia and bought from her supply store. Shot a lot of images on my new Canon G10. I will share some images with you soon.
Really difficult to really express our thanks and hope that we return to Tansobak soon to visit our family again.

Our family of five wanted to experience the Carribbean and had friends that highly recommended Tansobak. We had such a wonderful vacation in Little Bay, Jamaica. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and private. We loved that this cottage is removed from the hustle and bustle of Negril but with close access to the entertainment. We highly recommend this to families, and couple too.

A wonderful place to get away from the Tourist Crowd. I used just the 1st floor, which had an 'eat-in" kitchen, front room w/futon, bedroom w/double, and bathroom w/shower. Ceiling fans, a mini-fridge, AM/FM/CD player, CDs, a few good paperbacks, dominos, and a coffee maker are available in addition to the usual plates, glasses, etc. Breakfast and dinner (included) are delicious and freshly prepared by Ms. Annette or Ms. Sophie who, in addition to being great cooks, are excellent company. The building is well maintained and very clean. Water is solar heated. There's a bar across the road that can really booma da bass, which might bother some; however, they're very understanding if it does. I slept great. Sea is close enough to hear. A genuine value.
