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.

... Rafiki and us. The van that was provided didn’t look to hold 9 people but somehow we manage to squeeze all of us. Ingrid was very informative and proud of Jamaica as she showed us the sights, sounds and smell of Jamaica. We stopped at a mountain café for breakfast and a breath taking view.

... pickers, the herbs they used as medicines and point out photo opportunities. Then at about 1pm we had gotten back to the coffee house where we would stop for lunch. We had delicious chicken and rice, spiced using the locally grown spices! We bought some coffee and put it back on the bus and at about 1:30 we set off again on the bikes. We made a stop at part of the plantation and Vinnie asked us all to try and find a red coffee berry. Once we had found one we had ...
... go and ask once the rain would stop. I was starving and the girl offered me to watch my bag while I went next door to check if they had some lunch. They were just preparing it, so I waited, enjoyed the special atmosphere of the rain, the beach and the sea.
I also called the hostel which had been recommended to me by the people at the Bird's Nest, but they were full. After lunch, it had stopped raining, I went back to the girl at the other ...
... br> Laura was the best travel buddy. She was as cool as a cucumber the whole time. I had the flu for the first three days, and she didn't push me to go out. Then she wasn't feeling well and I was and she didn't push me to stay in. We did things both individually and together and were remarkably on the same page the whole time, even to the point of splitting every meal we ate. (Great Huts' food portions were huge!) So, thanks for being such a good co-traveler, Laura. We'll always have Great Huts!
Suddenly, appearing at the top of the hill, we noticed a woman with a name tag pinned to her blouse making her way towards us. I looked at my companions wondering if anyone had seen where she'd come from and they looked back wondering the same. As she reached us, right palm extended, she politely asked if I am Jeanne. I become immediately relieved to finally come in contact with an actual person.
With a wide warm smile and sweet Jamaican lilt, Sydoney welcomed us ...
