There is something magical about Blue Harbour. The amazing history that surrounds this place, it's incredible views and the sea salt water pool. It is a healing place, Noel Coward always said he felt peaceful at Blue Harbour and we did as well. We stayed at Villa Chica with it's intimate surroundings and gorgeous views of the ocean but all...

This was my fourth trip to Blue Harbour, and was initiated by a friend who had heard me talk so much about it that he insisted that he had to go experience it himself. He was not disappointed. The same timeless charm still enveloped it; the setting is unsurpassable, the delicious food features fresh-caught fish and seasonal fruits and vegetables,... More

f you want an authentic Jamaican experience, go to Blue Harbour. My husband and I have been going to Blue Harbour for 20 years. We counted on our passports and think it has been 8 times. We discovered the charm and history of Blue Harbour through a chance meeting by our sister and the owner. Once we went, we were... More

My Partner and I had the pleasure of a week at NC's Blue Harbour. We stayed in Villa Chica where Dietrich and Hepburn would live when visiting the Master. The entire property is well maintained and we spent each morning lounging and reading at the pool. As it is far from the tourist places, you can expect to truly relax... More

I recently spent an idyllic week here; I rented the Casa Grande, where I slept in Noel Coward's bedroom complete with his carved wooden pineapple-topped four poster, with stunning views right along Jamaica's north coast. Downstairs in the dining/sitting room the walls are covered with photos of Noel & his many illustrious guests, many of his books are still present... More

If you love the beauty of the Caribbean ocean surrounded by mountain landscape, a salt water pool and breathe taking villas this is your spot. Being a person who loves history and the arts I found the perfect place to stay " Blue Harbour" - it was like living in a museum - surrounded by Noel Cowards furniture, photos and... More

Like James on holiday, I'm a little ambivalent about writing this review. I love Blue Harbour, but as James points out, the management has really let things go. Noel Coward would certainly not approve. My wife and I have stayed at Blue Harbour five time. The first was in 2000, when we were married there. (It was really a spur... More

I had a hard time rating this place. It still is one of the prettiest remnants of Jamaica's hollywood post-WWII glitz, with a great history and unbeatable location and view, but it is such a shame the current owners don't seem to care about the property at all. The place oozes potential and the fact it is so neglected kind... More

Mr. James I am horrified by your review . Reading about your experience is not a typical experience of our guests . Most of our clientel book in advance and if they would like meals prepared and served the staff is prepared. I do not remember your prior visit but you must have had a good enough time to return....

The hotel was very impressive because of the history of movie stars staying there. The staff (Leroy the manager & Roy the cook & others) were very friendly and helpful, they got us anything we needed and they were very knowledgeable. The place is perfect for family or a group getaway. If you want to experience authentic Jamaican food, people,... More
