I visited the restaurant at Mt Jolie for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the elegant pool side cafe with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The service was excellent, the food was good with a fun variety from bruschetta to goat. Fresh salads & warm rolls came with our meals. The journey to Mt Jolie was long, steep and winding through many impoverished streets, but well worth the trip. A rare opportunity to see another side of Haiti and its gracious people.
On a hill overlooking the ocean and the city, this hotel encapsulates my image of a classic, older-style, Caribbean hotel. Its an oasis from the the rather chaotic city below, with open air lobby, lounges, bar and restaurant, clustered around the swimming pool. Clearly, its an older building but with well maintained public areas. Our room, although clean and very large with excellent ocean views, would benefit from a little more maintenance. We had a health issue while staying here and the management and staff were EXTREMELY helpful. Its a very short walk (admittedly up-hill) from the terminus for the long-distance bus from Santiago in the Dominican Republic, which proved an excellent way of getting here. Highly recommend this place.
The drive up the hill to this hotel is very steep!
The Hotel Mont Joli is beautiful, quaint and friendly. It has a nice open-air reception and restaurant that overlooks Cap. The staff are courteous. The food is well prepared., the pool is cloudy and could do with someone casting a net over it but it was nice. The staff were pleasant but 2 drinks orders and they were out of change so quite slow as some poor girl had to run down the steep hill into town.
The restaurant was the best part of my stay food and staff was wonderful. My room a/c never got cool enough to cool the warm room. No, water pressure in showers and I had to take a cold shower all 3 days. Pool was not clean. The grounds of the hotel are well kept and beautiful.
The hill up to this hotel is impressively steep! We were relocated from our original booking at the Christophe, a very popular destination in town. Unfortunately, they lost our reservation and cancelled it on us without us receiving proper notification. They offered no remorse or apology and simply said it was an accident. They did offer to find a room at the Mont Joli for us. They provided free transportation to the hotel and the same price I paid. Gracious, we checked into our room at the Mont Joli. (I did find out that I only saved about $3.)
The property of the Mont Joli is beautiful, the restaurant is good, the pool is refreshing and the room was nice. Everything was just slightly more than the standard for a Caribbean hotel, which was nice. We would stay here again if we had to!
