Mountain view
Was not offer soap, only towels, place was dusty. T.v was not working. Bad internet service. If you want a certain type of breakfast you have order the day before or settle for eggs and bacon. Nice view, had a hammock to relax in. Noisy outside in the morning because of traffic.

Base for hiking Blue Mountain
Rustic is an apt term. Hot water and wifi were excellent though! We ordered dinner each night and both were fantastic. The staff was very friendly and took great care of us. The first night we mentioned we liked Dragon Stout beer. The second night she had it for us. We drove from Kingston and it was fairly scary. Other drivers were all courteous. One of us would move to the side for the other to pass on the narrow bumpy road. About 90 minute drive from the hotel to the Blue Mountain base. I highly recommend hiring a driver. Marvin drove us- the road was treacherous. The hike was very nice. A lot of elevation. It took us 2.5 hours and $20 USD each to climb. We did not have a guide for the hike. The paths were extremely clear.

Customer service was rubbish unprofessional and staff were rude and arrogant, the food we had ordered for room service was cold and with no flavour, our room lock was faulty and was locked out even the maintenance guy could not get into the room so finally after finding a long ladder he climbed in through the balcony.. we was given a upgraded room for our final 9 hrs off stay left at the hotel.... would not recommend this hotel at all.

Quaint hotel/guest house in the midst of nature.
This is a great little hotel (but really more of a guest house). I give the overall rating a 4 out of 5. I want to be clear I am not using a star rating like you might assign to the Intercontinental or Hyatt Regency, but more of a 4 out of 5 experience. I believe that when you travel you need to connect with your surroundings. This hotel is located at 5,000 feet above sea level in the mountains of Jamaica. It's a lush setting and a different environment than most travelers on this site will ever experience. The staff is excellent. Tanya and her team do a great job of making you feel at home. The chef is very accommodating with providing meals each day. The grounds are beautiful. I've been coming to this part of Jamaica for years and this a great trip and can thank the hosts for helping to contribute to my stay. 2 night stay is probably all the typical traveler needs before experiencing another location on the island.

A taste of Paradise
I was spoiled by the staff and really wanted to stay longer. Very relaxing, no fuss about anything. Getting up to enjoy the sunshine and the picturesque views changed to my only goal. I felt safe, relaxed, comfortable and well-cared for -- exactly what I needed this weekend.
