Beautiful spot on the side of Harmony Hill overlooking Boston Bay. Goats walking around loose on the hill and you wake up to the smell of the Jerk Center which is a few minutes away. It is a long drive from Norman Manley Airport but worth it. Make sure to check out Winifred Beach, and The falls both approximately 15... More

The drive up to Caribbean Dawn is impossible in an economy rental. It's a very steep, rocky, muddy and uneven road that's dangerous when dry and impossible to navigate when wet. We were going to be at the mercy of Jason, the friendly local groundskeeper, who drove us around our first morning there. We wanted the freedom to be able... More

The road up the hill to Caribbean Dawn is certainly steep and rough. However, any decent rental car can climb the hill, including the economy rental car in which this guest/reviewer arrived and departed. Driving slowly and in low gear is recommended (for both going up and down). This guest/reviewer was swimming in the pool the day they arrived. The... More

Can only echo everyone else's reviews. The view is amazing, I highly recommend the night view as well. Beautiful! There is no TV, because you get a 144" porch filled with the most beautiful view. The hike up and down the hill is not nearly as bad as some people said and I'm definitely not in shape. In fact, we... More
