J spared nothing in constructing the tree house. There’s satellite TV, radio, fridge, and even a retractable roof to bask under the Caribbean stars on clear nights.

Not looking to live it up? Try the infamous hammock hotel. A lodging found only at Rocking J’s. These four foot wide hammocks seduce you into slumber just by their look. Be careful though, these are a sure fire way to pass out early on what would be a long night drinking. Being only a few minutes walk from town and the nightly party, finding your way home from the numerous regaee clubs wont be to difficult.

How much does it cost to stay at this captivating, shoestring budget, paradise? The hammock hotel is at the low end of accommodations at only $5 a night. Rooms range from $10 – $20 a night, and the tree house might break the bank at $60 a night.
