So we arrived at Strawberry Hill around 6.30pm and from the moment we arrived we both relaxed immediately - which is most unusual as normally it takes a day or two to change pace and get in vacation mode. The setting is really stunning and place has a laid back and casual vibe - it feels more like staying with... More

The resort is old school and best suited for couples looking for a recharge away from cities and pressures of life. The cottages are of generous size. Tons of privacy. Fantastic views. There are heated beds and lovely pillow top mattresses . Now for the things that might bother visitors . The furniture is getting old. The bathrooms have not... More

Ok…..so I have contemplated this review and really struggled with how to best and fairly describe my recent experience at Strawberry Hill in Irish Town Jamaica. To set things up a bit, my wife and I have stayed at top resorts all over the United States as well as the world including many of Travel and Leisure’s top five US... More

Recently, I returned from my first trip to the island nation of Jamaica. A friend recommended Strawberry Hill Hotel. Their recommendation was an excellent one for what I needed. I needed an escape. I wanted respite from crowds, and desired a place where I could commune with nature in rustic seclusion, while enjoying modern conveniences. Strawberry Hill fit the bill.... More

Owned by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records and the man who brought Bob Marley and others to the attention of the world. Exemplary resort. Not very much to do here except relax. Then again, this is the reason to come here. Small, Intimate, perfectly quite, serene and still. Atop a long winding road, the resort overlooks a lush verdant... More

Small property, high in the hills! Very beautiful, manicured lawns and spectacular views from your own private patio. The restaurant and bar on the property serve good food with a simple wine menu and good spirit selection. The staff are friendly and helpful. It rained quite a bit during our visit so we would recommend having umbrellas as an amenity.... More

Had a 3 night mid-week break at Strawberry Hill. Found the staff pleasant and accommodating and the new manager very friendly and helpful, goes out his way to make you feel like valued guests. The food was a very good standard and we were fortunate to be there during restaurant week so were able to benefit from the fixed priced... More

Its difficult for me to write this review because the location of this hotel is simply amazing, its such a beauty. However, the servie was terrible and the staff somewhat rude. The amount of money you pay should mean that there is service with a smile. We were very generously upgraded on our arrival and really fell in love with... More

My wife and I have stayed here three times. It's my wife's favorite place in Jamaica. My favorite is Jake's, SH is a close second. Rooms have spectacular views, we like the Tibuck rooms. Food is great, especially Sunday brunch. Bar has tons of character. Sadly, the spa is horrible

We stayed in "Tree" and just steel yourself for a bath and kitchen from the 60's. Outdated or quaint-your choice. Louvred windows with screens, no glass...ok? Got it? Retro. Then enjoy this place. Check out the Chris Blackwell room with the gold and platinum records. Sip coffee and look out over the view of Kingston, Try to get a photo... More
