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.

... to Barbados and were laden with heavy luggage. Fabian
and Raymond had the daunting task of moving that luggage on four separate occasions because I had reserved 3 huts to review, and they never once made us feel as though we were a burden. When I would apologize for the weight, they would smile and say, "No problem, mon."
In fact they never made you feel as though anything was a problem and they seem to wear many hats here. They greet guests, transport luggage, take care ...
... meeting to decide your goals and everyone's role - Producer/Musicians, Backing Vocalists/Writers. Next comes pre-production. This is when you select the team that you feel most creatively comfortable with. You then select the days and time of day you want to work. (Several famous artists can't sing a lick, until the sun goes down!)
So my friends, if you think you've got what it takes, why not head to GeeJam and give it a whirl?
Our last stop on our tour was ...

So fully exhausted and quite proud of our efforts we made it back to Lime tree farm for a rest. That night we celebrated Matt’s birthday with more Red Stripe and a surprise birthday cake! Roger introduced us to Rum and Ting. This is local Jamaican Rum (Appleton’s) mixed with Ting (A fizzy grapefruit juice drink). It was really good! The next day we had a nice breakfast of Ackee, juice, coffee and toast and then ...
