“really excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

as a journalist working in the Caribbean and living in Suriname, I visited so many hotels. This one is very special : I rented the house in front of the swimming pool. All around is a beautiful garden and in the distance, down the hills : Kingston. As a surprise, very special to meet the owner Oliver Hill, the author of the Jamaica (Moon series) Travelling Guide, like I did for the Caribbean Media Group about Suriname. Don't miss Moon Hill !

I was in Kingston on business for one night and was looking for a more unique experience than a hotel. Moon Hill delivered on all fronts. Fantastic views of Kingston Bay from the top of a hill. A beautiful place to have a drink and watch the sun set. The rooms are spacious and clean and there is also a nice pool.
If you like the quiet it is ideal and in a short 10-15min taxi ride you can be in New Kingston or Barbican. Great Value and highly recommended. The propieter of the property is also an expert on Jamaica and its culture which helps add a trive of academic and cultural knowledge to the experience.

Room Tip: 2nd floor with a views

We spent our first 2 nights in Jamaica in Kingston, and our stay at Moon Hill was definitely a great start to this holiday. After a 15 minutes drive from the airport we arrived in this beautiful villa in between lush green hills and were surprised by a breathtaking view over the bay. The rooms are spacious, filled with bright sunlight, and there is a generous living area with dining room, not to forget a big terrace with hammocks and comfy chairs. Our breakfast: topped by fresh mango just picked in the garden! The swimming-pool is well maintained, and after breakfast we could relax at it surrounded by tropical rainforest. After all, we had the feeling being in our own private villa!
The owner is the person to ask about travel advice, knowing virtually everything about Kingston and the rest of the island, so we knew where to enjoy our jerk chicken, the vibrant nightlife and where to continue our Jamaican adventure. Definitely to recommend!

I've been a frequent guest at Moon Hill villa since it opened in 2009. I enjoyed waking up to beautiful sunny mornings, tropical birds and a nice breakfast ...everything done from scratch. My days are either filled with trips into the city or just chilling by the pool at Moon Hill that overlooks the beautiful city. At nights the concierge makes sure I am never bored whether its trips to the local clubs, restaurants or bars or dinner and music at Moon Hill. So whether you just want to relax or shake it with trips to clubs or sightseeing...I definitely recommend any and everyone to stay at Moon Hill.

We (3 people) went for a 4 weeks holiday to jamaica with the intention to stay at the north coast but also to visit the capital of the island. Searching for something special we came through friends contacts to this spot up in the cool and quiet hills of kingston, still only 5 to 10 minutes drive away from the main streets of the city. The view is amazing basically over the whole city to the waterfront and the keys! A beautiful garden was settled around a villa. A short visit became easily a 2 weeks stay.... It has a large living and a dining room with antique furnitures.The sleeping rooms were spacious, the roof terrace is fantastic to watch the sunsets, the kitchen is modern and offered anything we wished anytime. The pool and the sweet extern poolhouse are maintained and clean and where one of our favorite spots. Oliver, the extraordinary friendly and competent host of the place is a journalist and helped us to find things in and around town, a perfect tour guide as he writes books about the island!! He picked us fresh fruits for juices from the lush green garden anytime we were thirsty. Even our rental car found a place in the owners garage!!! Truly a real hidden jewel on a beautiful island!!!
