I, recently stayed at this place, was decent enough for guests who wants to enjoy the hill side country environment. But not a good place for the visitors with consulate work and unconfirmed length of stay just like me. You won't receive any refund even if you do early checkout which is unlikely in other best places located in the...

Dear Suresh, Thanks for your visit to Moon Hill. We're sorry to hear you didn't find Moon Hill ideal for your purposes. We are in fact five minutes away from the US Embassy where you indicated you had business and other guests who came on embassy related business haven't shared your complaints. We spoke while you were on property to...

Our stay at Moon Hill was fantastic! Five nights allowed us ample time to enjoy the pool, eat delicious, fresh food prepared by the staff daily and sight see. Since Moon Hill is situated close to the Blue Mountains on the outskirts of Kingston, a day trip to the north coast and mountains was very feasible. Everyone was very nice,...

My wife and I recently stayed at Moon Hill for two nights during our two week honeymoon in Jamaica. It had been recommended to us by friends who had previously stayed there. The owner, Oliver Hill, had also helped us to arrange accommodation elsewhere on the island. We stayed in the best room, which is enormous, with a great balcony...

I found this gem through Tripadvisor. Called the hotel. Spoke to Oliver, the owner, who had written a guide book and was supposed to be very helpful with tips. And that was more than true. He is indeed one of the friendliest people, forthcoming with all kinds of ideas and advice about not just Kingston, but Jamaica. And being a...

Stayed here earlier this year with my wife and loved every minute of it. The colonial style house has a beautiful pool and nicely maintained grounds and is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Kingston. Oliver, the proprietor, came and picked us up from the airport and took really good care of us, suggesting things to do (I...

Nestled on a hill overlooking all of Kingston's broad harbor, Moon Hill provides sensational food and lodging, as well as unparalleled views and knowledge of all this rich small island has to offer.

The best view in Kingston can be found at Oliver's beautiful lodging, Our thoroughly knowledgeable host guided us to sights and places we never would have found on our own.

Oliver and his small team create a home from home atmosphere in the fresh air overlooking the metropolis of Kingston. Great home cooked food, local feel but comfortably removed from the day to day street life of the downtown. For business or leisure travellers fatigued from Marriot like boxes of the world this is the place. Not posh and a...
