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

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

Thank you for addressing my response to James I hope I can clarify your questions Our staff that live on the property do not stay in the rooms they have their own staff quarters. They do not swim in the sea in the buff. What James may have witnessed are guests who have dreads and whatever he saw the food the naked babies were theirs. I do not know as I was not there I know it was late at night when he arrived but when I asked about the incident this is what I was told. I do know that Toilet paper is included and meals can be ordered .Blue Harbour is a small place it does not have a restaurant We welcome "pass by " guest . We have accommodated a variety of guests . Blue Harbour is a unique vacation as you get a taste of the real Jamaica. Blue Harbour is family friendly. Folks have had weddings family reunions and many have found Blue Harbour just passing by and return alone or with family and friends. Please see more recent comments which may further your understanding of a Blue Harbour holiday .

"Villa Grande is the main house, but Villa Chica is an even quieter out of he way guest house, down towards the pool."
"Villa Chica is the ideal secluded bungalow for a romantic getaway, but my personal choice is the upper floor of the main house (it is the highest elevation on the property) with its magnificent panoramic views, ample wrap-around veranda, and comfortable, well-ventilated rooms."
"There are 3 villas to choose from, Villa Chica is very private and where Marlene Dietrich used to stay, Villa Rose is for larger groups and Villa Grande is above the main house and was Noel Cowards sleeping quarters. All have great views, breeze and privacy."
"Michele suggested Villa Chica and we loved it! It is the bungalow closest to the pool (40 steps!) Comfy beds, too!"
"Villa Chica is nice for a couple. Villa Rosa is good for a family. The great house is the best."
