Set on a steep, lushly landscaped hillside above a sand beach with active surf, this white-sided hotel was built in the mid-1970s about 2km (1 1/4 miles) west of Pedro Cross. Although its staff is young and inexperienced, this is the largest hotel in the area, and is often the hotel of choice for Jamaican honeymooners. The origins of this property actually date from the 1930s when it was a retreat for asthmatics. Its centerpiece is a long and airy rattan-furnished bar whose windows look down the hillside to the beach and the hotel's 4.4 hectares (11 acres). Bedrooms lie within a series of outlying cottages. Each unit has a ceiling fan and a veranda or patio, plus a small bathroom with tub-and-shower combination.
