Jake's is an off-the-beaten path boutique resort in Jamaica.

The resort is comprised of 12 individually designed cottages with funky decor, some with decks, that line Calabash Bay.

This place is not for everyone. It is a tad on the rustic side, and the resort beach is not great, however, if you are looking for a secluded Jamaican experience try one of the Octopussy cottages at Jake's. The service is laid back and friendly, headlined by Duggie, Jake's legendary bartender who makes incredible drinks at the Pelican Bar. So what is there to do if the nearby beaches aren't pristine? Hire a local to take you fishing, kayak, or read a book. Sounds like a good place for Chappelle to do some heavy thinking.

If you are looking for an all inclusive resort on a white sandy beach, move along--but if you are looking for a quiet laid back Jamaican experience in a bright adobe bungalow, check out Jake's.
