There is a swimming pool on site plus free access to the delightful Frenchman's Cove, a private beach to which... More

This is a place where you feel being at home in Jamaica. Get to rest and peace with you and the rest of the world. The location of the hotel on the top of a hill enables a wonderful view over the treetops with the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. You enjoy the many different... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days in December 2015. The hotel owners, Shireen Aga and Barbara Walker were very gracious and helpful. They customized both birding and non birding excursions for us, provided packed breakfast and lunches when we had early starts. It is a well maintained place and the surrounding gardens are a haven for bird watching.... More

Hotel is up in the hills with stunning views of the Caribbean. It is in a part of Jamaica that is not overrun by the commercial tourism. We took the 8 day birding package and it was excellent, we saw all the endemics. The birding guides they arranged for us (Roger & Lyndon) were very knowledgable. There were ample opportunities...

Had our Christmas dinner here 2015. Overall experience was a pretty nice one however, very pricey and two of the dishes were not edible. The road up to the property is pretty treacherous, also. Admire their efforts for sustainable living and business practices. Great view!

What a lovely place to spend some time in Jamaica. Some of the best beaches including Frenchman's Cove and the Blue Lagoon only moments away, and the most spectacular views of the coastline. The Hotel itself is quirky and luxurious, the best touch being the beautiful indoor/outdoor hammock in my room, perfect for relaxing with the verandah shutters wide open... More

Quiet and small boutique hotel in the hills above Port Antonio - great restaurant, views and cute rooms. Practices great Eco policies too and has a stunning garden surrounding the property. Overall a fantastic base to explore the surrounding area of beautiful Port Antonio and Portland.

The first night we were lucky to be able to join in on 'cooking exhibition' with Barbera which was alot of fun. The second night we had dinner on the 'upper platform'... More

It's always a special pleasure to welcome back guests again - it's like welcoming friends anew. Glad to hear that you felt at home - despite the heat. Yes, this year was extremely hot with record high temperatures but we are lucky that it's cooler here up on the hill than at sea level. Jason will put a menu together... More
