We have stayed at Moon Hill several times and love it. The setting is very quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The beds and rooms are very comfortable and we always get a good rest there. The house is nice (complete with music studio) but we never spend any time in it because the porch and the pool are our... More

The owner was chill and a great cook! It was relaxing and a great start to our trip. It felt like you were staying in a home and that was exactly what I needed and wanted. I would stay there again for sure!

Moon Hill is a work in progress. The owner is the process of upgrading areas of the villa which is a job to be completed over time. This is not a luxury villa , but a clean, secluded option in Kingston. The owner is always around , great guy to chat with and he has extensive knowledge of Jamaica. I... More

I love this place. I felt so taken of and Germaine, the Chef and man of all talents was so helpful. The meals were amazing. He is truly talented in the food department. I felt really catered to. The staff went above and beyond to made me feel at home. The only thing is that my second and last night... More

I, recently stayed at this place, was decent enough for guests who wants to enjoy the hill side country environment. But not a good place for the visitors with consulate work and unconfirmed length of stay just like me. You won't receive any refund even if you do early checkout which is unlikely in other best places located in the... More

Dear Suresh, Thanks for your visit to Moon Hill. We're sorry to hear you didn't find Moon Hill ideal for your purposes. We are in fact five minutes away from the US Embassy where you indicated you had business and other guests who came on embassy related business haven't shared your complaints.

Our stay at Moon Hill was fantastic! Five nights allowed us ample time to enjoy the pool, eat delicious, fresh food prepared by the staff daily and sight see. Since Moon Hill is situated close to the Blue Mountains on the outskirts of Kingston, a day trip to the north coast and mountains was very feasible. Everyone was very nice,... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Moon Hill for two nights during our two week honeymoon in Jamaica. It had been recommended to us by friends who had previously stayed there. The owner, Oliver Hill, had also helped us to arrange accommodation elsewhere on the island. We stayed in the best room, which is enormous, with a great balcony... More

I found this gem through Tripadvisor. Called the hotel. Spoke to Oliver, the owner, who had written a guide book and was supposed to be very helpful with tips. And that was more than true. He is indeed one of the friendliest people, forthcoming with all kinds of ideas and advice about not just Kingston, but Jamaica. And being a... More

Stayed here earlier this year with my wife and loved every minute of it. The colonial style house has a beautiful pool and nicely maintained grounds and is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Kingston. Oliver, the proprietor, came and picked us up from the airport and took really good care of us, suggesting things to do (I... More
