We stayed at Good Hope twice in September. The craftsmanship that went into building each individual cabins made them works of art. Views of the sea and sunsets from the porch were breathtaking. Meals were delicious and served with a flair. Terry, Mel, Sean and Geneva were excellent hosts, accommodating and good company.

Absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever been to and I have traveled everywhere. Naturally the views are more than stunning, but it is uphill so be prepared but it is definitely worth it. Cabin is simple and charming, very serene, peaceful environment.

Sean and his family were wonderful hosts! The cabin is even more gorgeous than the pictures. Everything was clean and comfortable. It was a true retreat - so quiet, peaceful, beautiful. There are not other tourists around, and the locals were so kind and friendly to us. It was very safe out in Kentucky; we were not worried for our...

As far as I can tell, this is a one-of-a-kind place to stay in Jamaica. The cabins are situated 2,000 feet up in the mountains which provides a completely different experience from being on the coast. The hand-built cabins are simply fantastic. We stayed in the newer cabin, which is partially built on stilts so that it cantilevers out over...

My fiancé and I stayed at Good Hope Retreat on our recent trip to Jamaica and we could not have been more pleased. I proposed to her on our last morning at the resort on the porch of our hut which overlooked the ocean. Good Hope was the perfect option for us to get out of the touristy, heavily traveled...

My wife and I just got back from a vacation in Jamaica, and we had a blast!

Visited Good Hope Retreat with friends from Key West years ago,,, wonderful experience in every aspect. What a memorable vacation.!

Great view, great cabin to sleap in, loved the outside shower! The peace and serenity was so good for closing our trip in Jamaica. Keep having faith in your GPS, then you'll find it. It's so worth it. We played pool with this lovely seven-years old girl and she was beating us ;) Food was nice, especially breakfast with a...

I stayed at Good Hope Retreat for three days / two nights with my husband and young son, and we had a fantastic time.

I am originally from Turks and Caicos Islands; a country also in the Caribbean. This was my second time in Jamaica. My first visit was in December 2009 with my husband and daughter; where we stayed in St. Elizabeth (the parish next to Westmoreland). Jamaica is different from Turks and Caicos in their landscapes. Jamaica is mountainous and lush in...
