The view overlooking Kingston and the mountains is to die for... the service was excellent, the privacy there was perfect for a quiet get away... the room in itself was so inviting and comfortable, you really want to stay inside the entire time...a must visit....

Celebrated a birthday dinner in a group of about 15 people. We were greeted and shown the different views - and they were spectacular - but felt rushed by our hostess.

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
