I gave it poor mainly because it is extremely overpriced for the standard. i agree with everyone that the service is very good and staff are friendly. However purely based on price its is not good value very basic rooms and food that was very expensive. Whilst I am not necessarily looking for luxury in this kind of setting which... More

We stayed at Forres Park for two nights in November. It is not fancy but it offers everything you need - comfortable bed, clean bathroom, great food in an open-air dining area. We like to go bird watching, and the area around Forres Park is very good for that. Colin is an excellent birding guide, and he is often available... More

We stayed in Forres Park for two nights. The room is totally overprized for what you get. As well be prepared to pay five US Dollars for a cup of coffee (just plain coffee, made at the very same coffee farm)! The location is nice, we did not feel disturbed by the road as there is hardly any traffic at... More

Highly recommended for those who like to travel a bit differently........ My husband and I (in our thirties) spend 4 days in Mavis Bank in the Blue mountain. We did not walk up to the peak and watch the beautiful view, instead we enjoyed mingling with the kind people of Mavis Bank! We were welcomed with open arms and a... More

The place is not paradise. The cabins are as indicated - very simple. Just one naked lamp on the ceiling in the room as well as in the bathroom. Beds are comfortable. The cabin is clean. But thats about all thats positive. There was no warm water for a shower in the morning. When we arrived de were told that... More

The property here is wonderful, lots of fruit trees and views of the mountains. Like previous reviews said it can get loud at night. Overall we found the service was disappointing, the main manager (can't remember her name) was very nice and helpful. However the rest of the staff acted like we were a burden to them. The food was... More

This was our first flavour of Jamaican hospitality. It was a lovely place- complete with many hammocks- many cups of coffee as well as lots of beautiful scenery and the first viewing we had of the Jamaican national bird:-) I'm not a bird watcher but they really are beautiful. The Jablum coffee factory was literally a stones throw away and... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend, but at the end of the day I came away slightly disappointed and felt we'd have done better to return to a competing establishment we'd stayed at before. On the plus side, the building and the gardens/farm are very pleasant. If you like the idea of a double size jacuzzi bath... More

My friend and I stayed one night and the following morning our guide Shanique gave us a guided tour around the coffee plantation. I learnt so much about coffee and the different species of birds, Shanique not only knew all the species of birds but could tell us which ones were there by their bird song, the trip was amazing....

My girlfriend took me to Forres Park for my birthday and i must commend the staff, especially Kerry and Shanique. Our experience was one that i've never had before, ever ! Everything was splendid, food, hospitality,scenery even more astounding. I would always come back here and recommend this spot to anyone. Great job ladies and the support staff as well.
