My girlfriend and I stayed at Zion County the last 3 days of our 10 day trip to Jamaica. It was a great way to end our trip. We were looking for a laid back place with good vibes and good people to wrap up our stay in Jamaica and that is exactly what we found here. Our first day was lost to rain – but we were still able to enjoy a very well prepared and tasty dinner by Owen and a wonderful conversation with Free-I. Both Free-I and Owen were very helpful with giving us a feel for the surrounding area and helping us to navigate so it was easy to find whatever we were looking for. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with Free-I and his insight into the everyday workings of Jamaica – he helped us understand things that most tourists during their brief visits don’t get the time to learn about a county and its workings.
As far as the accommodations – they were exactly as advertised and pictured. Everything was very clean, very well maintained and well thought out. The rooms themselves are simple while providing exactly what you need, a comfortable bed (w/mosquito net) plenty of shelving for storage – and best of all – a fan for those hot/humid days/nights. The outdoor chair and hammock were quite comfortable and were perfect for relaxing while taking in the sounds and sights of the bay. As we were there at the beginning of the “off season” we were the only guests there until the second half of our last day. Because of that I don’t think we were able to take full advantage of the very nice and spacious public areas – which were set up very nicely to allow guests to mingle and get to know each other while exchanging stories about their travels. Not to mention the fantastic view overlooking the bay. The absolute highlight of our entire trip was the excursion to Reach Falls with our guide Rennie (sp) that Free-I arranged for us. DO NOT pass this up! Trips out to the surrounding area attractions like Boston Bay or others are pretty easy – but since Long Road isn’t a major area you might wait just a little bit longer for a taxi than other areas. Getting back is just as easy as almost every taxi driver has heard of Zion County and with the road in better condition than most they will drop you off right at the front door. If you are looking for a great comfortable place to kick back and relax, a place to meet some great people and a place to have some great conversations and exchange some great stories then this is the place for you!
