I went to the restaurant for a special night out with my spouse. The first thing you will notice is the journey, the roads are winding and up hill and you may wonder "why am I doing this again?". BUT its worth the trip. Just the view alone is worth the trip. The view of Kingston is absolutely breath taking... More

Dear Horace Centrado T, Thank you for taking the journey to visit us. As just 30 minutes above Kingston, we also believe it is very much worth the drive to escape the Kingston heat especially right now in the summer! We're glad you enjoyed your experience and look forward to having you again. One Love, Christina Taylor & the SH... More

After a long day of sight-seeing we brought a large group of people to Strawberry Hill for a nice dinner in the evening. The views will absolutely take your breath away, and when you leave Jamaica you won't be thinking of their beaches, but their breathtaking mountains. The staff was wonderful at taking care of everyone in our group and... More

Yes, it is beautiful. Yes, the pool and views are amazing. Yes, the room(Tree) was unique. However, the service was just not up to par. We had breakfast issues the morning we had to leave. We arrived promptly at 8 expecting a leisurely breakfast before our driver arrived at 10:30. At 10, we left the table .. Having only been... More

We went there for lunch June 30,2014. On the way up, you think to yourself, where am I going. The road going up is a challenge if you are not familiar with the area. When they open the white shabby gate, it's a world of paradise. Very quiet, very romantic, everything was great, people food, atmosphere. View will take your... More

Cons: Started off in Bamboo (2BR villa) but requested to be moved because it was not clean. Though the main fixtures in the villa were clean, the base of the toilet was gross and the villa furniture and bed linens looked like they had not been dusted or cleaned for a long time. For the price you pay to stay... More

OMG! Chris Blackwell sure did it right with this resort. I would call it 'Simple Elegance" There are not TV's in the rooms. No phones either. They give you a cell to reach them when you need to. There is a big screen TV in a common area that is next to their lovely open air restaurant. We did not... More

Our family stayed at Strawberry Hill last March for three nights. It was an amazing experience as none of us had ever visited that part of Jamaica before (except my husband as a child).

The food was outstanding, the views breathtaking, the cottages were comfy and homey. You must take a trip to the nearby UCC coffee plantation to hear about different coffee types, see real blue mountain grown coffee and see some beautiful views.

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
