“Paradise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The views of Kgn from here don't get better elsewhere. Well manicured lawn and gardens. Cottages are well maintained and rustic but well equipped. Food is tasty but expensive .

“NO WAY!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If you want to see a live scorpion in your bathroom - it is the best place to do it. And after we have told the manager he called as liars, said its Phenomenon and said the pic of the scorpion we have could downloaded from somewhere. So we recommend you do not kill any scorpions you found, save them to show manager. We didnt ask about any compensation but he was so kind to us and offer $8 compensation. Yes, eight bucks
So bottom line - very rude unprofessional management and dangerous insects

Dear Larysa_St,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Strawberry Hill recently. Your very positive comments about the resort conveyed to me when we met on the final evening of your stay were very much appreciated by me and the rest of the team.
Every effort is made to ensure that all aspects of our guests stay are comfortably serene. In our lush tropical environment we are proud to say that the natural flora & fauna do not impede on the guest experience.
It must be noted that our rooms, including the two occupied by you, were thoroughly treated by our contractor only two days prior to your arrival to ensure that insects inside the cottages are kept to a minimum. Reliable anecdotal checks suggest that there has never been a sighting of scorpions in rooms and indeed throughout the resort property. Subsequent to your report and departure, the room in question was given a detailed check and no evidence of scorpions or insects were found in the room or in the immediate environs. Your report of the scorpion is out of the ordinary and my regret is that the physical evidence of the insect was disposed of, as this would have allowed for more comprehensive investigation by our contractors.
Please allow me again to thank you for allowing us to accommodate you at Strawberry Hill and for your encouraging comments on our food and service.

Warm regards

“stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

It's a long long way to the top of the mountain but wow is it worth the drive. The grounds are breathtaking and the food...
We walked around for a bit taking in the gorgeous views. The spa smelled delicious and sounded restful.
The food presentation is picture worthy and the silence during the eating speaks volumes. Have the jerk anything, the rum anything, the strawberry bliss, the carrot cake (rum whipped cream if you can imagine) and the bread pudding with icecream - the rum raisin has real rum. Skip Devon House ice cream and come here.

“Fantastic Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We booked Sunday Brunch there on the 3rd March to celebrate my fathers birthday . I had flown from the UK just to attend this event and had the most wonderful time possible . Fantastic variety of food , equally fantastic service, the most wonderful hospitality from arrival to leaving a few hours later with the children in our party were made to feel equally welcome .I would like to say a special thanks to the new General Manger Trevor Wetherburn who went out his way to greet each and every guest that arrived and went over and above the call of duty by taking some lovely photos of my family whilst we posed in the garden .It made out time spent incredibly special and we look forward to going back as the ambience and the vistas at Strawberry Hill are second to none
