I have visited Treasure Beach Hotel several times over the past couple of years and I have always returned because it is a welcome treat for those looking for peaceful, serenity , off the beaten tourist trap that one would experience on the North coast of Jamaica. When I decided to get married and plan a destination wedding, choosing Treasure Beach Hotel was a natural fit (although a hard sell for some family). The staff was simply superb and extremely accommodating of all the requests of a frazzled bride.
Property - The property is lush with flora and greenery and offered breathtaking views of the ocean and beach. While the beach is accessible, the area Treasure Beach is known for having a strong undertow, so exercise should be cautioned if you are not a strong swimmer. My guests loved the fact that they were able to get lost in the labyrinth of foot paths and walkways that were covered by tropical foliage. If you have the opportunity to visit the rooftop patio. It offers a simply beautiful view. On our first night, we enjoyed cocktails, a light ocean breeze and basked in the awe of a sky filled with millions of stars from the roof.
Rooms - The rooms were clean, well maintained. If you stay, I would highly recommend staying in one of the second floor ocean front rooms. It is well worth the additional price. As a frame of reference, we also stayed a couple of nights at the nearby Sandals. The Deluxe Ocean room at Treasure Beach was larger, offered a true unobstructed ocean view and a larger balcony. From a "value" perspective, there was definite value in what your getting!
Food - Great! Make sure you opt for the Jamaican breakfast. The owner has a mango farm, which resulted in a wonderful mango jam being served with breakfast. Up until this day, I have family still asking me how they get a hold of some of this homemade treat. All food is made to order, so if it takes a little longer have no worries it is well worth it.
Service - The staff was sweet and gracious! There were personable, hospitable and exuded a sincere desire to ensure that your stay was comfortable. The management had a visible presence. Unlike large scale hotels that offer inflexible destination weddings packages. Treasure Beach Hotel was receptive to ideas and suggestions on how to make the day special and adapt to my needs. We had the ceremony by the pool, when my husband and I took our pictures by the beach, our guests were served cocktails and appetizers. Our dinner was in the dining room and we danced on the rooftop (semi-covered) patio afterward. I was so happy that we were able to make use of all parts of property and the staff helped make that happen!
Overall - I will definitely be returning to Treasure Beach Hotel for vacation and hope to renew my vows there for my 5 year anniversary.
P.S. Little known fact - the area Treasure Beach is named after this hotel!
