10 Best Budget Beachfront Boutique Hotels in the Caribbean

Jakes is arguably Jamaica’s first boutique hotel with 84 hippy-chic cottages, rooms, and villas set along secluded Treasure Beach.

It’s also a member of the trendy, luxury hotel group Bespoke Hotels, and guests come here specifically to unplug — there’s no phone, Internet, or TV in guest rooms.

Water’s edge treatments in the Driftwood Spa, on-site classes in painting, mosaics, cooking, and yoga, and a revered restaurant serving top-notch, farm-to-table food shapes Jakes as a one-off gem that’s the furthest thing possible from “hotel chain.”

While its craggy black-sand beach isn’t spectacular, there’s a saltwater pool and a bar built on a sandbar that guests reach after a 20-minute boat ride.

Average price range: $119-$410.
