I cannot speak highly enough about the staff at Blue Harbour. Leroy, Roy, Donna, Patrice- they did such a wonderful job making us feel at home. The authentic Jamaican meals 3 times per day were delicious! The rooms were clean and the salt water pool a perfect spot to relax and take in the sunshine. We snorkeled right off the property so I recommend bringing your gear! The staff helped us book a day trip to the White River which was the cleanest river I've ever swam in! Another highlight was playing dominoes with my friends and staff. I highly recommend Blue Harbour - especially for those who are tired of your typical resorts where you can't even tell what country you are in. Blue Harbour help me experience Jamaica like I never have before.

My wife and I spent 6 days at Blue Harbour in mid-February 2019. We had a great time. The staff is superb, and they make an effort to accommodate everyone. While we were there, another couple stopped in with no reservation, and initially told the staff that they wouldn't be wanting any meals prepared for them. Then , day by day, they changed their minds and wanted food prepared. This was a real inconvenience for the kitchen, but they always did their best to accommodate. One of the popular guidebooks called this place "ramshackle". I disagree with that. The place IS getting a bit shabby, but that is because the various repairs and maintenance that has been done is not up to the standard of the original construction. Everything is clean and the place is very welcoming. One bit of advice....Like many vacation accomodations, this place is listed in many places on the internet. In some cases, it appears as though Blue Harbour has a full-time restaurant on-site, which you can either utilize or not. This is not the case. Meals are only prepared for guests and must be scheduled with some advance notice. Breakfasts are $10 per person. Dinners are $15 per person. Both are a good value. There is no bar here so, if you want beer , rum or any other specific beverages (or even snacks), you should buy them yourself on your way in. They will provide you with space in the fridge for your items. Highly recommended !

A recent visit to Blue Harbor for 8 days with friends was fantastic! It is a beautiful and restful vacation spot. The team who cares for Blue Harbor and its visitors could not have been more perfect! They welcomed us warmly; helped us settle into our immaculate quarters; maintained the villa, grounds, and pool in perfect condition; and prepared and served delicious meals made from the freshest ingredients. Their infinite patience answering questions about plants on the estate, new foods, and Jamaican recipes, and helping us arrange outings and transportation went far beyond anything one could expect.

In the 1950's and 60's this house thrived with the social life of Noël Coward and his famous guests, such as David Niven and Katharine Hepburn. The house, grounds and pool are little changed, with a lot of the original furnishings still intact. A rare treat to find such a place. The view can't be beaten, nor can the climate or the food or the pool. I returned as I knew that it would be a good place to relax and to be creative. The staff have been around for a long time and take very good care of you. The town of Port Maria is located conveniently near by and the location is good for trips to Firefly, Goldeneye, Dunn's Falls and the Blue Mountains. Buy coffee when you're there, it's a fraction of what you'd pay in the UK for one of the top ten coffee's in the world. When Noël Coward spent his first night in this house, that he had built in 1948, he wrote in his diary that he could of cried with pure pleasure. I understand why. As the years went by Sir Noël spent more and more months of the year here. I still need to snorkel on the reef and raft up the Rio Grande. I'll be back again. Blue Harbour is a welcome relief from overpriced, sterile super hotels. It is rustic, real, charming, historical and a sublime place to stay.

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.
