Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The view, the food and the people, all exceptional! We felt right at home. Such a comfortable vibe! Walking around the property was amazing. There is even a cut through down to the Main Street from the top house. We would definitely stay again!

Peter, Elaine, Mavis, Simon, and everyone else at this gorgeous property with spectacular views made our visit perfect. Our pre-arrival questions were promptly answered (they gave us great advice). We were able to get into our room a little early. Our daily custom breakfast (Jamaican or American) was delicious. Anything we needed (ice, a teapot in the room) was just a quick text away. The property was just a short walk from the beach, bars and restaurants, and shops. What we wanted was a peaceful, comfortable, beautiful spot to relax for a week and we got it. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband I happened upon this quaint Bed and Breakfast located just minutes from MBJ airport and the famous Montego Bay “Hip Strip”. Once booked, you can arrange for them to have a shuttle service pick you up with signage ($15 US per couple). Once you arrive, you will be blown away by the Amazing Views!!!! Clean rooms and traditional or international breakfast choices await you every morning ) This location can arrange day tours, food delivery from their affiliated restaurant the Pelican Grill…..or if you do NOT want to be bothered, you can be left alone. The hosts Peter and Elaine are a lovely, humble couple who will go above and beyond to make sure that your stay with them is memorable. The location is very central and I know many are concerned about crime in foreign countries and rightly so, be as vigilant as you would be at home. This establishment is very secure and someone is always available to help, if needed. The Hip Strip, is literally a brief 5 min walk down a hill, once there you will walk a brief 6 minutes to the renown Doctors Cave Beach- (entry fee $6 US). At the beach you can purchase food and alcoholic beverages at (Pier One) or interact with local vendors to indulge in native fruits, including real coconut water, not that insipid boxed water most are familiar with. The panoramic views from this location are beyond words and the grounds are well kept and you feel the pride of ownership everywhere you go. There are several vantage points where you can just get lost in the view - great location for remote work or to just decompress…Lastly, If you want nightlife or a lovely ocean side dinner, you have several options on the “Hip Strip to choose from including Margaritaville. We will definitely book this location over and over again, our only hope is that there not booked!!

This is a hidden gem. Close enough to the Hip Strip, but offers an escape from the noise and hype. Peter and Elaine met and exceeded our expectations. They noticed we liked our tea and the next day there was a teaset in the room. The meals were finger lickin' good. I had quava-pineapple juice everyday with breakfast. Peter provided his cell number and responded promptly to our requests. They provided information on drivers and tours. All were excellent. The only issue was our fan did not work, which Peter assured us he was working on repairing. Will stay again.

We loved our stay! The hosts are the most friendliest people! The daily breakfast is made fresh & to order and you have a small selection to choose from each day. The rooms are spacious and the view was beautiful. The room was clean and everything was up to date. The property was safe and gated. We were able to walk down the strip during the day and at night without any issues. If I go to Jamaica again, I will definitely stay here again!

First impressions do last. Jeremy was my first point of contact when booking and the level of customer service and communication was so great, I already knew I was heading somewhere spectacular! On my day of arrival I met Peter (owner) who is such an exceptional host. He was most pleasant and welcoming and showed me around with zest. His beautiful co-host was equally pleasant and kind. Good hearted people do make this world a better place. The property is simply a gem. It’s pristine grounds and serene aura will pull you right into a state of bliss. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. The food was delightful and served with love. I liked the location very much. It’s close enough to the strip, but also tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Mo’Bay life. If you desire R&R this is the place. The rooms are spacious, and the bed very comfy. Everything was just perfect to me. The house keeper and groundskeeper are not be missed as they too were very kind and a lovely extension of their employers. I can’t wait to return to this beautiful home away from home. Oh! they go all out to with safety and security, a huge plus in these trying times. This beautiful place is definitely a must go! Thank you team for your lovely hospitality 🖤💚💛

This was our second visit to the Polkerris. We came as a group of 6. One couple stayed in the Vista De La Bahia and the other two were at the Polkerris. The rooms were simply beautiful and truly comfortable. Breakfast was very tasty with lots of choices. There were two pools and lovely verandahs on which to enjoy dinner that we purchased in town. We walked to Dr's Cave Beach and to Harmony Beach in the daytime. The sunsets were magnificient and the views breathtaking. The most delightful part for us was that Clarissa and Jeremy, and Peter and Elaine, and their team, treated us like welcomed family members. We were able to relax as if we were at home. This was the second most relaxing vacation I have ever enjoyed. The first was during our initial visit to the Polkerris. They do everything to a very high standard yet make you feel as if you are in your own home. We are looking forward to our next visit.

"Magical" is one word that comes to mind when thinking about our stay at Polkerris. We booked Polkerris for a very last minute trip and were pretty nervous that we'd be disappointed. We considered throwing in the towel and just booking a resort, but I'm glad to report that Polkerris was a better choice than any resort or hotel on Hip Strip would have been. The moment we arrived to the property, we were greeted by Crystal who was waiting on the porch for us and already had our room keys in hand, ready to give us a tour of our room and the property. Crystal then led us around, showing us our room, the pool (one of two that guests can use!), the game room, and how all of the electric key card-only doors around the property work (very secure). Our tour ended with glasses of ice cold lemonade waiting for us on the expansive terrace overlooking the sea and several of my stress pimples disappeared immediately. The location of the hotel is quite hidden - Google Maps and even some of the taxi drivers we met actually had no idea exactly where the hotel was - and we loved that. It's about 10 minutes walking uphill from Hip Strip so it's very quiet and private. Being on a hill also means it has incredible views of the water. We spent many of our hours in MoBay lounging by the pool, enjoying the lavish, made to order breakfasts with fresh fruits on the terrace, and just walking around the property admiring the beautifully-kept flowers, plants, and koi pond. Our room looking out to the garden was very quiet, clean, and had AC, blackout curtains, and the best shower. It felt like we had all of the personal touches and comforts of a bed & breakfast with the standards of a 5-star hotel. Clarissa, the owner, and all of her staff put a lot of thought and care into this place and it shines through in all of the details. There were some tiiiny details in the room that I think would take Polkerris from "very, very good" to "excellent." For example, the bathroom door was had a lot of dirt marks on it that should be cleaned off. The tv remotes in our room were also weirdly sticky. Another very small detail - the hangers could match. Our room had a bunch of mismatched hangers, some colorful plastic ones and some classic wooden ones. The room also felt ever so slightly dated & stuffy with its decor (the bedskirt, for example), unlike the rest of the property which feels very airy and modern. Do note, I am mentioning these small critiques only because I enjoyed Polkerris so much that I want to go back for an even better experience! We would return to Montego Bay *just* to stay at Polkerris again, that's how much of a wonderful & relaxing place it is. Highly, highly recommend.

Polkerris was a fantastic place to stay in Montego Bay. I was leading group trip (10 people) and Jeremy and the Polkerris team were very easy to work with. They were helpful and responsive during the planning process. Our arrival and check-in went seamless and they assisted in setting us up for dinner at a nearby restaurant (Pelican Grill), getting transportation to the airport, and provided info on nearby parks. The accommodations themselves were wonderful. The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable. They had even placed pitchers of water in the fridge which was a nice tough. The common spaces and pools were very nice and welcoming. Despite how nice the rooms and common spaces were, the views managed to top them. From the balcony you could see bougainvillea flowers in the foreground with mountains and the seas in the distance. Our group breakfast was also wonderful. We had 6-8 options to choose from (Jamaican staples and American classics). The entire group as happy with their choices. I could not recommend Polkerris more highly, for a group or for a couple/family retreat. Our only wish was that we could have had more than one night.
