This is a great place. Beautiful located villas with a super view. Staff is friendly and helpful and the food is basic but good. There is a cool infinity (solt water) pool. If you are looking for something different than the usual hotel deal, this is a great option.

This place is semi-famous for the Noel Coward connection, can read about elsewhere on here. It's for well seasoned traveller looking for an unique experience. This place has not been remodeled since the 1950s – its like old Hollywood glamour, a walk into the past. It’s bare bones, no frills amenities. No wi-fi, no AC. It’s an old time villa... More

We only spent one night here, but I can't think of a more chilled, laid back, relaxed place to stay near the ocean. We had the windows open and went to sleep with the sound of the sea crashing on the rocks below. We stayed in the Villa Grande, which has 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom - we being... More

Noel Coward's get away home, built in 1948… He fell in love with Jamaica and it's people, climate, food… and lack of insects! He found this idyllic place on the coast towards Port Maria. The buildings and salt water pool remain the same, as do many furnishings… recognised in many photos. Which all makes this a very very special, authentic... More

Blue Harbour was built by Noel Coward on a rock adjacent to the sea and offers spectacular views and a warm welcome to its guests. We resided in Villa Chicka for 3 nights and the room was comfortable and basic with a great view of the ocean. Breakfast was served up every morning by Candy, and it was varied and... More

There is something magical about Blue Harbour. The amazing history that surrounds this place, it's incredible views and the sea salt water pool. It is a healing place, Noel Coward always said he felt peaceful at Blue Harbour and we did as well. We stayed at Villa Chica with it's intimate surroundings and gorgeous views of the ocean but all...

This was my fourth trip to Blue Harbour, and was initiated by a friend who had heard me talk so much about it that he insisted that he had to go experience it himself. He was not disappointed. The same timeless charm still enveloped it; the setting is unsurpassable, the delicious food features fresh-caught fish and seasonal fruits and vegetables,... More

The entire property is well maintained and we spent each morning lounging and reading at the pool. As it is far from the tourist places, you can expect to truly relax... More
