    Description

    My name is Brett Hanna. I am currently 36 Years of age. My father and i currently are owners of two establishments located on a 12 Acre lot of land located in Portland Jamaica. This land sits directly on a Cliff 70 Feet above sea level overlooking the caribbean ocean. We live on property where we both operate a Seafood Restaurant and a Hotel. We are currently in the process of expanding our operation to doing further developments. I am devoted and committed to ensuring my business remains successful and would love for persons overseas to come to share in this exciting endeavour. Life here in Portland is very calm and peaceful. Portland Jamaica has the least crime in all of Jamaica. Portland is mainly a tourist resort island where mostly europeans come to vacate. Here, we are flooded with Beaches, Rivers and water falls. It also experiences a lot of rain particularly in the months of May, September - November. Majority of the Food and Vegetable sources are natural along with the atmosphere which is predominantly green. The people here are extremely friendly and welcoming. We have a full staff working here that works there required hours. We would love the additional help and this would’ve greatly benefit Persons looking to learn those crafts and experience what Portland Jamaica has to offer.
