5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I stayed at Moonhill Jamaica in November 2012, in the Poolhouse. It is a wonderful romantic room and setting, lovely at night or day. Everything you could want is there, and having breakfast on by the pool in the sunny morning or dinner at night on the terrace is highly recommended and the Chef is superb at juices, food and hospitality.

I will be going back for sure many times!

3 of us recently stayed at Moon Hill while visiting family in Kingston for just one day. They had never heard of Moon Hill, up in the Blue Mountains. Probably a good thing, as we'd like to keep such a great find quiet. Although Oliver, the owner, might not agree. If what you seek is peace, beauty, easy access to activities in Kingston, delicious food and drink then Moon Hill is just the place. For Kingstonians who want to take a "staycation" in this difficult economy, this would be a perfect location to "get away from it all".
The pool house is more rustic than the big house, but you can't beat a swim in the pool at your door in the morning or evening. We highly recommend Moon Hill.

Moon  Hill has fabulous food, excellent service, an excellent wi-fi signal and it is very well situated. We stayed in the pool house and rested comfortably under the mosquito netted four poster bed. Multi-lingual Oliver was a wealth of information and interesting trivia. Mozel tov to the Jamaican Jewish lunch (pepper jelly is finger lickin' good!).Omar prepared a scrumptious curried fish and the blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup are well worth a splurge. Last but not least, endless locally grown coffee and limeade made with amber sugar are made to perfection. Solar heated hot water, gravity controlled water flow, and avocados and mangos picked from the property, show Oliver's  commitment to ecologically sound business practises. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast nestled in the foothills of Jamaica's Blue Mountains. 

Room Tip: Pool house is tops!

Food was so fabulous. Seldom does Villa location get such high marks for their food but Oliver delivered and exceeded our expectations. Lovely property, maintained grounds, comfortable, well furnished rooms and an in property pool that was quiet and peaceful. Tucked in the hills of the Blue Mountains, you can't help but take in the stunning view of Kingston and the sea. The bonus was the freshly prepared meals with excellent quality ingredients that were presented with the flair of a seasoned chef. Hat's off Oliver, well done!

Beautiful location. It was really easy to get anywhere in Kingston. The staff was friendly and had great suggestions for places to go. The food was excellent! Highly recommend the Jamaican Italy breakfast. We rented the pool house which was great. Very comfortable and clean. I highly recommend staying here, we have travelled all over Jamaica and this is one of the best places we've stayed. We will be back!

Kingston's chaotic, Moon Hill's chill. Move at your own pace, decide how much or little service and pampering you want. There's music if you want, but a peaceful, quiet sleep away from the hustle & bustle of the urb. The food's fantastic -- I recommend the Ital breakfast with soursop & papaya juice -- home made to order. Great views of the bay, a nice pool area, and beautiful birds and garden are a plus. The crew are down to Earth and real -- no stuffy hotel service here. All in all, it's no Best Western... it's more like a relaxing home stay than a hotel, and if that's the way you roll this is the place to find your groove.

Room Tip: If you're going as a couple get the pool house or master bedroom, for singles the other rooms ar...

My husband and I had a fabulous time at Moon Hill for our honeymoon. When we arrived at our pool house room our bed was festooned with fresh flowers from the grounds. The location is great for those who want easy access to citylife in Kingston but would like a quiet place to rest. The cab fare to and from the guesthouse to points of interest in the city is well worth it. The grounds are lovely, lush gardens and rustic decor in a nice neighborhood. The food was fantastic! Fresh, tasty, and prepared around our schedule. One of the best parts of staying at Moon Hill was meeting the staff. They could not have been more helpful and fun to get to know.
