Caribbean Dawn is an amazing property. The views from this property are unrivaled. If you are looking for a true get away, then this property is it. In order to properly enjoy your stay, you have to set your expectations. The rooms are basic and rustic, but they provide everything you need- comfortable bed, fridge, hammock, and a small dining...

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Glad you liked the comfortable bed, fridge, hammock and, of course, the awesome view. We also encourage folks to stock up the full sized fridge upon arrival with some Jamaican staples like bun and cheese. Cold drinks are a must, especially plenty of Redstripe beer! All can be purchased at the... More

My Fiancee and I returned to Jamaica, this time with our two children aged 7 and 9. We were joined by my brother and his girlfriend for the second week which made it more special. From the first day at Caribbean Dawn we felt appreciated and well cared for. It was an easy place to enjoy the simple things that... More

I haven't stayed at Caribbean Dawn for a number of years and I forgot what I was missing! The best part is the pool which is a new addition since my last stay. The view is incredible on it's own but it's somehow even more amazing while floating around the pool. I love how big the rooms are and the... More

I was really excited to see the new pool this time when I journeyed back to Carribean Dawn this April for my fourth stay. When I arrived and saw the new pool and it's beautiful new surroundings, it was heavenly. I spent 3 beachless days (shocking for me) in favor of swimming in the pool in its tropical surroundings with... More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Glad you liked the pool. The stone stair above the pool is proving quite popular with many quests. The view is great and the walls are perfect height for sitting (which was part of the plan). Max is my favorite dog too. He so loves the attention. Thanks for mentioning the... More

Our family had a fantastic weekend. The balcony had incredible views of Boston Bay and the Caribbean Sea. The kids enjoyed the pool and the Brown room was very clean and comfortable. The kids where thrilled with the bunk bed. Jason was a great host; he was helpful and attentive. Looking forward to our next visits, hopefully in May.........

We stayed at John's place for three nights. The view was as impressive as it looked on the website. The villa is on top of a cliff, and the way to get there is extremely steep and bumpy. Everybody there has a 4X4, and so should you! But we came back in one piece even with the small rental car.... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Glad you liked the view and the Blue room with king-sized bed. Although a 4 x 4 is certainly the best option for the country roads in Portland, including our hill, travelers should know that any rental car (big or small) can navigate the roads and our hill as long as...
