We stayed in Mountain View 1 - loved it! Our balcony had an incredible view of the Blue Mountains. This property has all the charm lacking from the larger all-inclusive type resorts. The food was delicious (but on the pricey side). I'd def stay here again if back in the Kingston area. The pool is beautiful, and we enjoyed a...

Dear MaegUT07, We are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. You are right, Mountain View 1 has amazing views and what the guests love most about this cottage is the opportunity that it provides to enjoy the sunrise....

Well, what can I say that other reviewers haven't said it already. Strawberry Hill is a cute little resort in the blue mountains, complete with 13 private cottages lodged in the hillside, overlooking the mountains. The views are breath-taking, the menu(s) at the restaurant is superb, and the host(s), Adriana & Greg, will cater to every need you'd like, to...

Spectacular property, with interesting reggae & rock n roll music history as well as Jamaican Colonial history, including a connection to Ian Fleming, great views, but above all fantastic service - par for the course for a property owned by Chris Blackwell. Is it pricey, yes, but it's all about the details and the service at Strawberry Hill. In the...

I went to Strawberry Hill for a weekend break to seek some calm from a hectic business trip in Kingston.

This is an amazing property I have visited over the years several times--it's like a ritual when in Kingston. Staying there is a bit outside my range, but the restaurant, bar, grounds, cottages and everything is just great. The sense of music royalty is everywhere as the owner, Chris Blackwell of Island Records fame, put his imprint on it. Fantastic...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strawberry Hill Hotel, Spa & Gardens, a 26-acre mountain top resort, is located in the heart of one of the world's most famous coffee-producing mountain ranges, Jamaica's Blue Mountains. Listed in the New York Times #1 bestselling book, 1,000 Places To See Before You Die, Strawberry Hill is 3100 feet above sea level and features one of the most awe-inspiring views of the Blue Mountains in one direction as well as the city of Kingston in the other. On a clear day, one can see up to 100 miles from the property's infinity-edge pool, and at night the city far below becomes a twinkling mirror of the night sky. The property's 12 Georgian-style cottages, spa, exotic gardens and restaurant offerings underwent an extensive refurbishment in October 2011. ... more   less
