First of all, I want to say this hotel is not for the people who love typical all-inclusive beach resort.
HSH is located Negril criff side area. No sandy beach behind the hotel, but there is a very cool cliff backyard. One evening, I and my husband were sitting on the chairs on the criff and watching beautiful sunset with drinking Red Stripe (I had dark rum). It was like sitting on the ocean. Not like a sandy beach, it was very unique and wonderful experience.
Daytime, we loved jumping from the cliff and did show-off to the boat going through our backyard. We did snorkel too. If you are lucky, you may see dolphine.
The location of HSH is kind of a good position. Walking distance (maybe 15mins) to 7miles beach and downtown. If your room has a kitchen, you can shop Green Super Market (painted green) and make coffee or quick breakfast.
The restaurant of HSH, I would say can it be better little bit with some small details, like portion size, plate, or side of entree. However, 2 menu I loved were Jerk Conch and Platain wrapped with bacon. Jerk Conch was well spiced and cooked softly. I did not see same menu any other restaurants. Plantain bacon was the one mixed sweetness and smokey flavor. Good with Red Stripe. (becaused it was good, I wanted bigger plantain though :)
The day trip. We did scuba one day. There is many small tropical fished, octopus, ray, etc etc. It is beach entry and good for beginner. Another day,driver of HSH, Chris took us YS Rivers. There is no tour office in Negril downtown, I would recommend Chris for private tour. He told us stories about villages, musicians, rum factories, etc etc,. I also asked many quesions about Jamaica, like "people have health insurance?" "school is free?". On the way to the hotel, Because I was interested in, Chris stopped at small shop selling crawfish. Tour bus can not offer this kind of additional fun experience.
At last, the hotel. One hard working business guy, John took over the management just a month ago. People Negril told us this hotel was almost abandoned for a while. John is fixing one by one right now. Maybe not 100% perfect for all guests, however, at least he brought the stuff we requested him right away. Sometimes WiFi problem at night, but the line will be upgraded soon.
If somebody looks for an extraordinary vacation, I strongly recommend this hotel.
