"$70.USD One way from UVF to A Romantic Hideaway."
I was shock and upset at the $70.us I had to pay to get there .The hotel is only accessible by a free shuttle boat that runs very late into the night. The hotel is very romantic, great views ,nice apartments and most of all marvelous staff. It's very close to the beach but not much swimming can be done. There is not much to do in that part of town but jump in a cab, water taxi or get up early and get on the local bus to see the sites .The restaurant's in the area are a bit over priced for me so i just used my kitchen to prepare some meals another option is go to the over the water and buy breakfast or lunch where the locals go try the fish cakes they are really good.
The Jade Mountain is a one of a kind resort with exceptionally friendly and professional staff. I can not think of anything negative about Jade Mountain. This hotel has it all! Even its own farm where they organically grow everything for the restaurant.

Let's get the negatives out of the way, you must enjoy the outdoors to enjoy this location; there are no air-conditioned rooms and the driveway to Anse Chastanet leaves much to be desired (2 km of slow driving over rocky, rough surface).
The natural beauty was fabulous. The service was like "Chick-fil-a on steroids". There were no problems even when there actually was a challenge. The staff always found a way to accommodate our wants.
The food was delicious, somewhat unique, never heavy. Meals were joyfully satisfying, and surprisingly private. Traditional drinks were prepared correctly; specialty drinks were worth the taste.
The beach was private (maybe because of the time of year, September). We did not see more than 4 other couples in our beach area. Beach chairs were easy to find and very comfortable. There were hammocks, hiking trails, bikes, paddle-boards, boats, and various tours to enjoy. Snorkeling was good. Sailing was wonderful. The evening views (sun sets) were spectacular from the mountain.
Evening entertainment was typical of the Caribbean: certainly enjoyable, though not comparable to New York City. If you don't like the music, try tomorrow, it will be different.
If was our favorite Caribbean location. We can't wait to return to Anse Chastanet, or, possibly, Jade Mt, their sister hotel.
we were delighted to learn that we were staying in a large apartment guesthouse rather than a hotel. the apartment had a large kitchen with all the necessary utensils so we could prepare most of our meals, saving restaurant meals as a special treat. the owners were very hospitable and made us feel quite welcome. the wrap around balcony was great for enjoying our coffee in the mornings and drinks or tea in the evenings. the sound of the river and rustle of the leaves of the surrounding rainforest was relaxing and beautiful.
