I've come back to review Strawberry Hill as it stands out as being one of our most special stays. Time literally stands still when you arrive at this charming and exquisitely beautiful hotel which is set high up in the Blue Mountains. The views over the valley and the Caribbean sea by day are as dazzling as the twinkling lights...

Strawberry Hills is unique and perfect. The top points are: a breath-taking view on Kingston and the Blue Mountains, an incredibly beautiful place in itself, an atmosphere of luxury and relaxation, incredible food and rum cocktails. The owner (Blackwell) is an incredible successful and inspiring individual. Just be aware that the road to get there is in a terrible state.

Don't get me wrong - this place is amazing. Gorgeous 360 views of Kingston and the Blue Mountains, the villas are beautiful and enormous and the infinity pool is lovely.

My only regret about this place is that we didn't stay longer to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and amenities! This "boutique-ish" retreat boasts breathtaking views, simple, yet elegant cottages, a warm-welcoming and attentive staff...and did I mention the views? My husband and I will definitely be returning!

This facility offers the most beautiful, breathtaking, and serene location in the world. Nestled in the Blue Mountain, nothing compares. Strawberry Hills offers what I believe is "a glimpse of heaven." No TV, phones only for emergencies, you have no option but to relax and enjoy God's Goodness and see His marvelous handy work. Perfect setting for a wedding or...

This is an amazing location, views to die for, lovely comfortable slightly quaint cottages to stay in perched on a mountain top overlooking Kingston. A fascinating room to view all of Chris Blackwell's stunning gold and platinum record awards and full of wonderful photographic portraits of the music world.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strawberry Hill Hotel, Spa & Gardens, a 26-acre mountain top resort, is located in the heart of one of the world's most famous coffee-producing mountain ranges, Jamaica's Blue Mountains. Listed in the New York Times #1 bestselling book, 1,000 Places To See Before You Die, Strawberry Hill is 3100 feet above sea level and features one of the most awe-inspiring views of the Blue Mountains in one direction as well as the city of Kingston in the other. On a clear day, one can see up to 100 miles from the property's infinity-edge pool, and at night the city far below becomes a twinkling mirror of the night sky. The property's 12 Georgian-style cottages, spa, exotic gardens and restaurant offerings underwent an extensive refurbishment in October 2011. ... more   less
