The place oozes class and history. You could feel the energy of the many notable people who lived and passed through there...from Ian Fleming to Marilyn Monroe to Noel Coward...the estate is beautiful, the rooms elegant and everyone there - from Dennis to Richie and Chef Dorret - are kind and wonderful people. There is plenty of time to relax,...

I love this place. I went a year ago and I'm heading back shortly. The setting is amazing - beautiful house with guest wings, lush landscape and amazing views of the coast and hills. Dennis and Ludo are lovely interesting people and great hosts. Ritchie takes great care of you. The food is fantastic. It feels like staying in a...

We had a fabulous 5-day stay in this historic Venetian mansion, with its gorgeous gardens and STUNNING view over the Bay. Dennis and Ludo are gracious hosts who love to share the curious history of High Hope, and we had some great lunches and dinners there (lovely to have Jamaica's best jerk chicken for lunch at Scotchies nearby, and then...

I really love this property. Individual suites for each of us was rare. And the view is breathtaking. The atmosphere is so relaxing and the staff unbelievable. My friends and I stayed there in the late 1980's and it has always been our favorite secret place, so heavenly!

We stayed for three days at High Hope (my husband, teenage son and myself). We thoroughly enjoyed the company of our kind and welcoming hosts, the very professional and friendly staff, the superb grounds, the small but pleasant pool, the superbly comfortable rooms, the tasty and wholesome food (breakfast and dinners), the companionable cat and dogs. I cannot think of...

This place is highly recommended for those people who are not in the resort mood. It is the right place to spend your holidays. Away from the Ocho Rios crowded cruises, but only 5-10 minutes by car if you want to go to the city restaurants (although probably you won't since the food they prepared in High Hope State was...

High Hope Estate is truly a 'Great House', tucked away up the hill in St. Ann's Bay, Jamaica! It is a nature paradise; beautiful, serene and comfortable! Our hosts Dennis and Ludo are most gracious 'expats', as we Jamaicans say for expatriates - non Jamaican residents. The service was superb and complemented the birdsong that greeted us in the morning,...

My husband and I spent a long weekend at High Hope Estate in March and it was a wonderful experience. The property is gorgeous, the service above and beyond, and you cannot beat the views. We escaped a snow storm in New York and landed in a quiet, private paradise. Excellent location, too, as it was close enough to venture...

A wonderful well-kept 1960's villa, a storied history, a romantic shuttered high-ceiling bedroom with private terrace, wonderful gardens, long vistas, and attentive staff. The smoked marlin was a wonderful restaurant treat!

We stayed at high hope for 5 nights and it was an absolute delight. It's only got a few rooms, so it's like a peaceful heaven.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An intimate and romantic Inn overlooking the blue Caribbean Sea, High Hope Estate is located near Ocho Rios and is truly one of Jamaica’s little known secrets. Five beautifully furnished guest rooms are located on acres of botanical gardens. High Hope offers guests the peace, tranquility, and natural beauty expected when vacationing in Paradise. Each guestroom, with names like the Hibiscus Room and Royal Palm, are furnished with English and Jamaican antiques. All have baths en suite and verandahs offering spectacular views of the blue Caribbean and the green hills of St. Ann. Turn down service is offered nightly. Acres of botanical gardens surround you providing refuge to countless varieties of tropical birds, flowers and fauna. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular and you will probably find fireflies in your room at night. Peace is the order of the day. Eight other members of staff make up the team that look after your every need. Chef Evadney has won awards for her creations that are predominately Jamaican but with an Italian influence. We offer lunch and dinner service served on your private verandah, by the pool, or in the romantic setting of the Meditation Hut. ... more   less
