“Nice Meal in Pleasant Surroundings”
Review of San San Tropez

Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 February 2017

Intrigued by the idea of Italian food in this part of Jamaica, we dropped into the San San Tropez from our accommodation not too far away, and we were instantly captivated, both by the service and the food. We were sufficiently impressed that we returned a few days later, to our complete satisfaction. The restaurant is a bit to small to offer a full range of Italian meals, but the pizzas were excellent and the pastas were delicious. The setting is very pleasant, either in the dining room if the weather is difficult or alongside the pool, watching the hummingbirds to their work. It's not a well advertised restaurant, but a meal here re-pays the effort of finding it, right across the street from the entrance to Frenchmen's Cove. And the price is reasonable.

For a taste of Italy and fusion cuisine, try San San Tropez' restaurant. There are lovely pastas and lighter fare, served in a quiet, intimate restaurant in view of a pool and lovely garden. Come early and have a drink on the patio, and watch the hummingbirds. For a taste of fusion cuisine, try try the Rasta Pizza, a thin-crust Italian pizza, with Jamaican akgee - it's delicious! Your host will make you feel very welcome!

I was here for few days in January with my uncle's family. I really enjoyed the location. The hotel is cozy and the breakfast is very good. From san san tropez we went to the blue lagoon, monkey island, boston bay and the reach falls. I really recommend this hotel if you want to travell through the east part of jamaica in order to discover wild beaches and the jungle and if you are looking for a peaceful holiday.

This little hotel is gorgeous and in the perfect location. It's literally right across the street from Frenchman's Cove, which has one of the prettiest white sand beaches on the island (US$10 entry fee), but well worth it! San San Tropez sits on a little hill, slightly elevated and is surrounded by a beautiful, well-kept garden. There's a pool as well as a little restaurant that serves Italian food (Fabio makes the BEST pizza!). The rooms are all very well kept and have large king size beds and come with A/C, cable tv and good-sized working bathrooms with both cold and hot water!!! The water pressure is good, too! Also within a two minute walk, is another beautiful beach called San San, for which you can get free passes from Fabio (the owner of San San Tropez). This beach is a little more authentic than Frenchman's Cove...it's not as well groomed but does have a little restaurant that offers American (who knows why?!) cuisine. Frenchmans Cove has changing rooms, bathrooms, a nice well-priced restaurant, whereas San San doesn't offer all of those amenities, but San San does give you more of an authentic Jamaica experience. We love BOTH beaches. Also, you can walk to Woody's (about a 20 minute walk) where they have really, really good burgers! Just be sure to call ahead of time, to make sure they're open. We really enjoy staying at San San Tropez because you have all the amenities to be comfortable...i.e. beautiful grounds, nice large well-kept room, swimming pool, cable tv, restaurant on site, super friendly owner...and let me not forget to mention his adorable son who is about 7 years old! As far as location, you can't beat this place. You can easily take a route taxi into Port Antonio, the Boston Bay area, Long Bay, or Winifred Beach, which is another beautiful beach worth visiting. Fabio's property is a GEM, and we cannot wait to return!!! We love everything about this place...if I had it my way, there'd be mosquito screens on the windows, and it would be nice if the restaurant would also offer some genuine Jamaican food, not just Italian...but this is not a complaint, it's just a suggestion. We'll return here either way!!! One Love!
