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

We stayed at Moonhill at the end of February 2014 for a long weekend. We stayed in the pool house which had an extremely comfortable bed and was spacious and comfortable. The food and surroundings were really excellent and Oliver and his staff couldn't have been more gracious and hospitable. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit juices and great breakfast... More

Nestled on a hill overlooking all of Kingston's broad harbor, Moon Hill provides sensational food and lodging, as well as unparalleled views and knowledge of all this rich small island has to offer. Oliver Hill wrote the Moon Guidebook to Jamaica, and though an American by birth, his many years on the island as well as his profound knowledge of... More

The best view in Kingston can be found at Oliver's beautiful lodging, Our thoroughly knowledgeable host guided us to sights and places we never would have found on our own. After a day of sight seeing, we would return to a sumptuous meal prepared by our host and his staff. A relaxing swim in the pool and clean accommodations topped... More

This review is over due for sure, and I am sure the only reason I am writing "now" is, I just booked my next visit for Jan 8, and I realized I never even shared my 1st experience as yet. I arrived to a very warm Welcome by the owner himself, Oliver was very helpful in getting me checked in,... More

Oliver and his small team create a home from home atmosphere in the fresh air overlooking the metropolis of Kingston. Great home cooked food, local feel but comfortably removed from the day to day street life of the downtown. For business or leisure travellers fatigued from Marriot like boxes of the world this is the place. Not posh and a... More

I'm a return guest at Moon Hill having stayed there in Feb. 2012 and then again this past March. My first visit was unexpectedly cut short by a night and Oliver was kind enough to honor that night upon my return visit. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location and surroundings are beautiful with lots of greenery and great views... More

We actually stayed here for 2 nights in Oct 2011. Oliver kindly met us just outside Kingston airport and we followed him up to the house. Pool house was perfect for the 4 of us (2 adults , 2 kids aged 4 1/2yrs and 2yrs) and we enjoyed taking an early morning swim and then a lovely Jamaican breakfast outside... More
