Things to consider: the home has been totally renovated so nothing is original. Only a few pieces of furniture are original. The 2.5 mil dollar reno did not include air conditioning. I get it.. it's hot in Jamaica BUT they start the tour by leaving your group in the dungeon for 20 mins w.no ventilation.. our group was abt 20... More

We went to the Iberostar for my 30th Birthday for a long weekend. It was amazing, unreal, the best!! The Staff- SO wonderful! We had a butler, his name was Dwayne and we also had O’Neil, both kept checking to see if we needed anything at all, it was amazing. They kept restocking the red stipe and chips which we... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed the history as well as the humor she injected and it was nice to see such a beautiful mansion restored. It felt like a piece of history come to life.

The history and the story is done very well. To see this mansion that was built in the 1700's is outstanding.

The haunted house experience was fun at night. Might be scary for kids under 6 though. We enjoyed it a bunch!

Beautifully restored plantation house which is well worth a visit regardless of the Annie Palmer stories. The tales of murder and voodoo add a bit of entertainment to the experience but are difficult to take seriously. Can be a bit hot and crowded but the guides are very good. Nice cold drink at the end.

This was a fun, quick tour that we enjoyed one evening. I am not at all into haunted houses and the like so was actually quite nervous but the tour is pretty laid back and the "scares" are minimal. If it's convenient, I would recommend stopping in but wouldn't say to make a big trip of it.

I took this tour with my 9 year old daughter. The tour was about 45 minutes with time at the end to look around the lowest level which has tables, bar, artifacts and information. There are also bathrooms that were converted from the prison cells. My daughter was glued to this story and it was so much worth the trip.... More

super great tour guide. Was dark and spooked. Guide was funny entertaining. Best part was a very nice American who literally ran to her car at the end of the tour. Highly recommend this tour in the evening
