We recently spent a wonderful week at the Caribbean Dawn Hotel. The view from the hotel is absolutely gorgeous!! We loved the new pool and spent several hours lounging by the pool and enjoying the beautiful scenery. While the road up to the hotel is very steep and bumpy, Jason, from the hotel staff, was really great about giving up... More

My husband and I stayed at Caribbean Dawn in May of 2014. My husband is Jamaican and we were in Port Antonio. We weren't typical tourists. This was a sort of anniversary staycation. Since we didn't have a car (we've seen the sights anyway) we just wanted to enjoy some R&R and hunker down for 2 days. Why we absolutely... More

My 20 year old daughter and I spent eight nights at this simple, but charming mountainside guest house located in Boston Bay. We were in Jamaica for my nephew's wedding and wanted to experience as much as we could during our stay. John Cox, the owner, kept the whole reservation process very easy and professional. He answered all of my... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned, our location on the hill provides both view and breeze.

Thanks for the review. Congratulations again on the marriage of your son. So glad everything went well and Caribbean Dawn was able to accommodate some of your family.

What do you need to know about Caribbean Dawn? - It is a 4-room guest house perched on a hill overlooking a seemingly endless expanse of lush countryside and the Caribbean Sea. Each room has its own balcony, and each balcony gets its own version of CD's >180 degree view of Port Antonio, Boston Bay, Long Bay, and the Caribbean... More

I traveled with a fellow volunteer friend from Kingston to Portland last month for a weekend trip and we stayed at Caribbean Dawn. The view from the house is absolutely breathtaking! While it was a bit too cool to jump into the new infinity pool, it certainly looked inviting. Our room was big, airy and clean. The beds have mosquito... More
