Lovely place and fabulous people. Oliver is always ready to help, advise and provide fascinating information about Jamaica. Food was excellent and the peace and beauty of the place was in contrast to the bustle downtown

We were looking for a relaxed start to our holiday in Jamaica before heading to the Blue Mountains. The fairly short trip from NM airport to Moon Hill was fun with the driver who works with Oliver, and the quiet surroundings of the hotel on the outskirts of Kingston was perfect for a relaxed evening. The young guy who cooked... More

We have stayed at Moon Hill several times and love it. The setting is very quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The beds and rooms are very comfortable and we always get a good rest there. The house is nice (complete with music studio) but we never spend any time in it because the porch and the pool are our... More

The owner was chill and a great cook! It was relaxing and a great start to our trip. It felt like you were staying in a home and that was exactly what I needed and wanted. I would stay there again for sure!

Moon Hill is a work in progress. The owner is the process of upgrading areas of the villa which is a job to be completed over time. This is not a luxury villa , but a clean, secluded option in Kingston. The owner is always around , great guy to chat with and he has extensive knowledge of Jamaica. I... More

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.

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,... More

“We were the only guests that night, and were given the poolside room, which is separate (very lose to house tho)and very quiet.”

“The pool house is our favorite room but is closer to the road so it may not be as quiet as rooms in the main house.”
