The perfect place to end the Jamaican trip! Lecia was incredibly welcoming and accommodating. The place has clean towels for you to use, as well as nice hang out areas where you can meet the other travellers. And we loved the hammocks! It also had plenty of facilities and the vibe was just great. It’s also perfectly located! You’ll enjoy!! Thanks Judy & Lecia!!
