To start, Jeremy was responsive with my multiple email questions and happily arranged our airport transfers.
When we got in, the place was beautiful and clean. The wide verandah had a beautiful view of the Bay and our room was clean and very comfortable. When we checked in at 11 am, our room was not ready yet so Clover immediately served us with sorrel juice. What a nice welcome.
Breakfasts were also delicious. We started with fresh fruits and juice. Then, we were given a choice of eggs and bacon (or pancakes etc.). I opted for typical Jamaican breakfast. The saltfish and ackee were so fresh, as were the fry fish. Clarissa was a gracious host and she even made sure that the fry fish I tired was a whole fish as opposed to just filets.
The location was also perfect. It was above hip strip so it was accessible to bars and restaurants and Doctor's Cave Beach. But, it was also high enough that we did not hear any of the thumping music from hip strip. The walk from Polkerris to hip strip was safe because we went through their other properties as a short cut so we felt safe walking home from the strip to Polkerris at night.
Overall, it was a lovely stay thanks to the owners, Clarissa and Jeremy, and a lovely staff.
