5-STAR SERVICE!

5 on February 21, 2015

February 21, 2015... Just finished a week-long stay here (the VIsta de la Bahia location). The property is secure, beautiful architecture, amazing views & well maintained. Peter & Elaine provided WORLD-CLASS service during our stay. They made us feel like family and are knowledgeable regarding the island, activities and how to get around. They arranged transportation for our various activities, as well as transportation to/from the airport; Robert and Morris "The Cat" were both AMAZING drivers. The breakfast was SO good; TRY THE JAMAICAN BREAKFAST OPTIONS! You'll be glad you did! The housekeeping staff was amazing. Audrey was always pleasant and accommodating, as was the other lady (sorry, can't remember her name at the moment). Polkerris is within walking distance of The Hip Strip, "downtown" and the beach. One of the main things that REALLY impressed us was that no matter how many guests were staying there, EVERYONE always got personal attention - they even remembered first names and details regarding all of the guests. Upon checking out, we literally got emotional as Peter and Elaine bid us farewell with genuine, warm hugs - YES, HUGS! They didn't just slide a receipt under the door like most places, they actually came to see us off. You just don't get this kind of service anywhere else! If you want EXCELLENT service across the board, Polkerris & VIsta de la Bahia are THE CHOICES! When we return to MoBay, we won't stay anywhere else! Kin Price


The BEST breakfast you will find anywhere!

We stayed with Jeremy and Clarissa in September this year for a few days. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach but off the beaten path and really quite and peaceful. It feels like you are on top of the world from the veranda, you can view the amazing sunsets, watch the cruise ships come and go and enjoy the breeze off the ocean. The breakfasts were amazing, the sweetest fruit with traditional Jamaican options. We never needed lunch. Highly recommended if you want a safe, quite and central location in Montego Bay.

A special hideaway

5 on February 10, 2007

The Polkerris Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful hideaway in Montego Bay. The hosts and staff are personable, the house is clean and beautifully maintained, the flowers are gorgeous, the view is spectacular, the breakfasts were delicious. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked up the spiral staircase to the open-aired veranda where breakfast is served daily. It is a 5-10 minute downhill walk to the hip strip, or maybe a taxi ride if preferred. It is a serene and quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the hip strip. We hope to return someday!

Signature Dish

Ackee & Codfish
Jamaica is one of the few places in the world that uses the unique and fascinating ackee, a fruit resembling an apple but with large black shiny seeds on the outside and when cooked looking exactly like scrambled eggs. Combined with salted codfish sauteed with onions, sweet peppers, tomatoes and thyme plus a dash of black pepper produces our deliciously intriguing National Dish.
