Our experience with Idler's Rest started so very well, long before we even got there. The staff are friendly & very accommodating. The hotel is quaint & lovely and the rooms met our needs. Our kids had a great time at the beach. It's a nice place to take a little rest.

I went looking for peace and quiet and received just what I was seeking. I was introduced to a staff that treated me like royalty. The room was average but nice, but the location was what I loved most. Outside the sounds of the sea rocked me to sleep at night and lured me to watch the fishermen cast their nets early in the morning. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared by the staff Jamaican-style had me longing for Jamaican cuisine each day while there and even now as I sit at home. I will definitely go back and when I do, Idlers Rest will be my place to lodge.

After a really long bike ride thru Jamaica, this was a welcome rest at the end of the day. Fantastic room, scenery, food and service. Our bikes were safe overnight, we had food made to order, and a lovely beach in front of the hotel. Not touristy. Great vibe.

All staff was great, friendly and helpful. Juliette manager was accommodating, and very professional. "Sista" was jack of all trades. David the bartender and Wayne the security guard. We were a huge party who stayed 6 days and not one bad experience. Highly recommend.
