    Nature abounds in this Real Jamaica experience. The ocean is beautiful as viewed from the deck. The trees are filled with fruits and birds. Grace is a great cook and made us a few very delicious meals. Take the tour with Papa Curvin to the Blue Hole. It was the highlight of our trip. The fruit and vegetable market in Ocho Rios was a unique experience. The cabins are just as pictured. Very quaint but not very comfortable. The bed was rock hard with old, scratchy sheets. We stayed two weeks, and had to ask for fresh towels and sheets after the first week. NO hot water for showers. The solar panel was under the trees so not really useful. The kitchen was well equipped with tea pot, coffee press, pots, and pans. I had no problems cooking meals for us . Don’t miss the beaches in the area, Sugar Pot, James Bond, Fisherman’s. All beautiful. The trip into the Blue Mts. is a long drive but worth the time . The mountains are fabulous and the coffee was so rich and delicious. On the day before we left Real Jamaica the “Rasta Man” stopped by the cottage with a grey box, inside we’re home made vegetarian patties. That was some of the tastiest food I’ve ever eaten. Real down to earth cooking. We were included in a soup dinner for the community’s older residents. Miss Annie, across the street, made a huge pot of delicious vegetable soup too share. We enjoyed music with a guitar & Curvin on the drum, and everyone singing. It was a great evening of food and music. There is a wonderful sense of community in Race Course. People are helpful to each other, the elderly are cared for by friends and family, the children are encouraged and assisted with educational efforts. We saw true Jamaica through the eyes of the people. You will never get this sense of the country at a All-Inclusive Resort. Thank you Papa Curvin, Joanna, Grace, Chester, Benny, Micheal, Marvin and all for a wonderful, memorable time at Real Jamaica 🇯🇲

    The home was so nice and clean and the setting was beautiful! We had access to a beautiful swimming pool right across the street in a beautiful setting with beautiful flowers and lush foliage. A driver named Lance Matthews was recommended to us and he made a difference in our vacation by telling us about the political history of Jamaica and taking us to local restaurants, markets, best beaches etc My family would definitely recommend this vaction and plan on coming back!
