Rum Jetty Villa - Jamaica - Mosquito Protection

At Rum Jetty we try to make your holiday as comfortable, safe and stress free as possible.
To address concerns regarding insects screens are fitted to all bedrooms.  We recommend closing bedroom doors at all times when not in use. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms to keep guests cool and blow away any insects. Portable fans are available for the living areas.  Mosquito nets are provided for use over some of the beds if requested.
Silver Sands does regular fogging of the property for mosquitoes which is a great help in reducing their population.
We recommend bringing your favorite mosquito sprays and consulting your doctor before travelling if you have any concerns.

Rum Jetty is in a class by itself, different from any other cottage or villa at Silver Sands. Take a look at the features that make Rum Jetty an environmentally conscious accommmodation.
