Oliver and the staff are great! The food was really amazing- better than anything I had anywhere in the city. I was in Kingston for work, and I could not have been more stress-free staying at Moon Hill. I was nervous about staying in Kingston as a single woman, but coming home to Moon Hill put me at complete ease.... More

I stayed at Moonhill Jamaica in November 2012, in the Poolhouse. It is a wonderful romantic room and setting, lovely at night or day. Everything you could want is there, and having breakfast on by the pool in the sunny morning or dinner at night on the terrace is highly recommended and the Chef is superb at juices, food and...

3 of us recently stayed at Moon Hill while visiting family in Kingston for just one day. They had never heard of Moon Hill, up in the Blue Mountains. Probably a good thing, as we'd like to keep such a great find quiet. Although Oliver, the owner, might not agree. If what you seek is peace, beauty, easy access to... More

Moon  Hill has fabulous food, excellent service, an excellent wi-fi signal and it is very well situated. We stayed in the pool house and rested comfortably under the mosquito netted four poster bed. Multi-lingual Oliver was a wealth of information and interesting trivia. Mozel tov to the Jamaican Jewish lunch (pepper jelly is finger lickin' good!).Omar prepared a scrumptious curried... More

Food was so fabulous. Seldom does Villa location get such high marks for their food but Oliver delivered and exceeded our expectations. Lovely property, maintained grounds, comfortable, well furnished rooms and an in property pool that was quiet and peaceful. Tucked in the hills of the Blue Mountains, you can't help but take in the stunning view of Kingston and... More

Beautiful location. It was really easy to get anywhere in Kingston. The staff was friendly and had great suggestions for places to go. The food was excellent! Highly recommend the Jamaican Italy breakfast. We rented the pool house which was great. Very comfortable and clean. I highly recommend staying here, we have travelled all over Jamaica and this is one... More

Kingston's chaotic, Moon Hill's chill. Move at your own pace, decide how much or little service and pampering you want. There's music if you want, but a peaceful, quiet sleep away from the hustle & bustle of the urb. The food's fantastic -- I recommend the Ital breakfast with soursop & papaya juice -- home made to order. Great views... More

My husband and I had a fabulous time at Moon Hill for our honeymoon. When we arrived at our pool house room our bed was festooned with fresh flowers from the grounds. The location is great for those who want easy access to citylife in Kingston but would like a quiet place to rest. The cab fare to and from... More

We stayed at the pool house in January and had a mixed experience of the place. First the inside : the bed area is nice, confortable and clean with beautiful sheets and a brand new mosquito net, the sitting area is also clean and confortable with cable TV, wifi and even a nice stereo equipment. Considering the prices of accomodation... More

Dear Beatriz & Dominique, We regret that you did not find peaceful rest at Moon Hill as we pride ourselves on providing just that. Indeed dogs can be a two-edged sword, but unfortunately it is a trade-off we must accept in a city like Kingston where we do our best to balance comfort with security. It is in fact quite... More

We needed a stopover for first night in Jamaica before travelling up to Port Antonio and we found this excellent guest house in the depths of Trip Advisor, which was a relief as the options in Kingston looked pricy and soulless. The house is pretty, in a quiet residential area on the hill, with a lovely view over the City.... More
