The Frenchman's Cove Resort is one of the most tranquil, serene, romantic, lush and relaxing place I have ever been. The resort is made up of a great house with 10 suites and 17 houses (villas) which are sprinkled throughout this 45 acre ecologically preserved, immaculately manicured property. The service of the entire staff, from the housekeepers, security guards, chefs, servers and landscapers were impeccable in their service and kindness throughout our stay. The modest prices are unreal and considering that in the 60's, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Queen Elizabeth and Family and recently, Rihanna, 50 Cent and P Diddy have enjoyed the peace and privacy Frenchman's has to offer. If yo go to Jamaica, don't just go to Frenchman's Cove Beach, stay at this amazing resort.

Immigration took forever, but that's bureaucracy for you. My friend/ fellow volunteer Lindsay & I were told to bring a book to pass the time, so I read a bit of Angela's Ashes. Even though that book is heartbreaking, it does make me want to think about going to graduate school in Ireland. Perhaps I shall apply to a few schools in the fall.
After immigration, we went to sort out things at the bank- ...

Anyway cutting a very fun 2.5 hour cycle down the mountains short, it was excellent fun with breath taking views, sheer road side drops, mud, torrential rain for most of the time even though very hot. We were given flattering blue and red rain poncho’s to stem off some of the rain as it was very heavy indeed. Thankfully my knee was strapped up, but I had not bargained on having to ...
... and within minutes of attractions such as Reach Falls, Rio Grande Rafting, The Blue Lagoon, the Blue Mountains, Frenchman's Cove Beach and so many more. You could visit each one within a week and still have time to lay on their private cove beach for suntanning in a hammock or deck chair. There's even a diving platform at the top of a cliff if you're daring enough to try. If not, it's a good vantage point for watching the surfers ride the waves into Boston beach. If you want to ...
... amenities and particularly the tremendous view. With a private hot tub, double steam room in the bath, room service, a panoramic view to the sea and again, Apple TV, there is no reason to leave the grounds of this cabin.
Unfortunately for us, all other units were occupied and because GeeJam places privacy at the top of it's priortiy list, we were not able to view them this time. Syd was kind enough to walk us by the back so we could see the location and because this path would ...
