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We stayed in "Tree" and just steel yourself for a bath and kitchen from the 60's. Outdated or quaint-your choice.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

This property boasts some memorable scenic views of the city and mountains. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped with very intimate and relaxing spaces. Attended a wedding and was a photographer's dream, especially with the setting sun. The drive up was challenging; the night return was intimidating. Probably best to spend the night at this boutique hotel and spa.

The location is just perfect. On a top of a hill, you have a 360 degree view over Kingston and Blue Moutain. The garden is beautiful with a lot of Humming beards. The room was good good but need maybe a little update. But it feels so good to there. We've spent only one night right after the Blue Mountains... More

We had a three night stay at Strawberry Hill. The trip from Kingston Airport to Strawberry Hill takes about an hour through some 'interesting' parts of Kingston and then the road winds its way up the beautiful Blue Mountains. The road is windy but we were picked up by the hotel in a decent car. (They charge you $180 US... More

I've stayed at this property twice, during my many visits to Jamaica, and I would highly recommend it, if you can afford it. The views from each bungalow are BREATHTAKING!! Hummingbirds and rare flowers blanket the property and the views of the mountains are spectacular. The wood carvings in the bungalows are some of the finest wood work I've seen... More

Dear LuvJaBad63, Thank you for your reviews, we work very hard with our landscaping team to ensure that the flora & fauna are very well taken care as some of the plant species & birds that visit are endemic to Jamaica and can only be found at Strawberry Hill! In regards to the concern of being treated unfairly, we are... More

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
