8/10 Very good

Staying with Jay at the upper house was like a home stay. Jays parents are very friendly and welcoming. The upper property is undergoing renovations that will be exciting in the next month or so. New private rooms with en suite bath and a large roof top terrace. This is also the closest property to the peak trail. You can walk right out the door and go or you can have a staff member drive you closer (cuts an hour off the hike) for $30usd each way. Other fees include $50usd each way from where you can park your rental care or get picked up from a bus. Dinner was about $12usd each. Guide fee is $60usd per group and then there’s a $20usd government charge to hike.

Staying at Jay's Guest House deep in the Blue Mountains was a great experience. It's an opportunity to get away from the typical tourist areas of Jamaica and have an authentic Jamaican experience. Jay has a wonderful family and they make you feel right at home. I would recommend the Blue Mountain peak sunrise hike and buying some of the best coffee I've ever had.

Jay is a superhost, kept in touch to pick us up, share his knowledge of any hikes you wish to do. His properly is well kept and comfortable, From Jay’s Guesthouse you can hike to the river to cool off or hike to the Blue Mountains Peak or Monkey Hill. Ms Donnette cooked some Jamaican dishes and it was absolutely delicious. Definitely would recommend Jay’s Guesthouse.

The food was excellent. The place inside, clean. Jay was a great host. The grounds need trash pick up. I thought it was over-priced for what was offered.
