Incredible Experience

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at this hotel was an incredible experience that exceeded our expectations. The hotel is majestically situated on a hill side with spectacular panoramic view of the Boston Bay area. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable with island inspired decor that perfectly compliments the ambiance. The wrap around balcony with hammock was the cherry on top. We will be back as its our new home.

Thanks John.

Stunning View,Warm Hospitality,the "Real" Jamaica

Stunning View,Warm Hospitality,the "Real" Jamaica

What do you need to know about Caribbean Dawn?
- It is a 4-room guest house perched on a hill overlooking a seemingly endless expanse of lush countryside and the Caribbean Sea. Each room has its own balcony with its own version of CD's >180 degree view.
- This view is STUNNING. I hike, snowboard, and travel a decent amount, but this tops every place I've stood or stayed in my entire life. See the pictures and let me assure you it is even better in person. As you sit on your balcony or by the pool, you are either eye-level with or looking down on the hawks gliding across.
- It is hot at sea level but cool and breezy up on the hill - even if you like A/C on hot days, you won't miss it here.
- The accommodations are simple but clean, bright, and comfortable - felt like "simple luxury" to me. You are "roughing it" only to extent you are enduring the crazy 2.5 hour drive from Kingston and tepid showers (I hear hot water is coming soon!). The "cold" water wasn't so bad - shower in the afternoon (after the sun has heated the water tank) and close your windows ahead of time to warm up the room.
- You will contact John, the owner, to coordinate your stay and arrangements before you arrive. I actually just met him and he is every bit as cool and kind in-person as he is in making arrangements for your stay. I had many concerns and questions before my first visit to Jamaica and he was extremely responsive and detailed in his replies.
- I am a petite white girl in my early 30s and traveled there alone, and I saw barely more than a handful of other tourists the entire time I was there (exactly what I wanted!). Jason, CD's house manager, met me at the airport and served as my personal host, tour guide, chef, and (quickly) friend for the duration of my 4 days there. He is a conscientious, gracious, and professional host who grew up in the area and knows how to take care of his guests. I wanted to see Portland, experience the "real" Jamaica, and get some surfing in, and he made it all happen in a long weekend. Even though Portland is a pretty poor area, I found its people to be kind and respectful, and I felt safe and comfortable the entire time I was there (thanks especially to CD and Jason).
- I am not a "dog person," but the CD dogs were cool - they bark like crazy at unfamiliar visitors, but they never got in my face and generally minded their own business after our initial introduction.
I'm already planning my next visit.

amazing views

  • 5 out of 5
We love the Caribbean Dawn, we have been visiting for the past seven years. We look forward to our yearly visit. Each year there are new improvements. We enjoy the view from the balcony, as we have our morning coffee. We love the beach at Boston Bay. We try new restaurants each year. The Jerk chicken at Boston is great. Jason is very helpful and provides us with our basic needs. Our favorite restaurant this year was Anna Bananas in Port Antonio. Can't wait to return next year. Frank and Ellen

Beautiful and calm vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We spend 18 days at this wonderfull place, it was really beautifull vacation!
The view is amazing and you can enjoy it every morning! The place is very calm and neigbours are friendly. You feel really free in this surrounding unspoiled with civilization.
Beaches are beautifull and you can enjoy your day with locals and by a CD from a reggae singer ))
The area is very nice, there are lot of places to visit such as waterfalls, lagune, bays.
Jason (manager of the guest house) can take you to any place of your interest in the surrounding and help you if you need something.

Amazing Views and Great Value in Boston Bay

  • 5 out of 5
We only stayed at Caribbean Dawn for one night on our way to another location but were very impressed. The rooms are large, nicely equipped (fridge, coffee maker) and the views from the balcony are amazing. The turnoff from the highway is easy to miss (just West of Boston Bay) and the road is steep but our rental car handled it fine. We walked down to Boston Bay and the Jerk Center and then stopped off for a beer at a nice,newer deck bar nearby. We worked off our food and Red Stripes on the hike back up the hill. There's also a small market at the base of the hill. JC was easy to work with via email for reservations and Jason took care of us once we arrived. He knows the area very well and can handle whatever you need locally or guide you to area sites. It was interesting to see them building the pool right on the cliff beside the property and it should be great when complete in a few months. We would definitely stay at Caribbean Dawn again and recommend to others.

Wonderful place, beautiful location, amazing view

  • 5 out of 5
All the other great reviews for Caribbean Dawn are 100% accurate. The view is amazing (it really is), the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the service from Jason the onsite manager is tops.

We stayed at CD for three weeks from December 2013 to January 2014. It was myself, our 1.5 year old daughter and my 6 month pregnant wife. We were more than comfortable and felt very safe and secure at CD. The location is on top of a hill, which at first seems steep and a bit questionable, but after you get to the the top you realize it's not that big of a deal. We had a compact rental (Toyota Yaris) and had no trouble getting up and down the hill, even in heavy rain.

We were in Negril for one week before coming to CD for the last 3 weeks of our trip. Negril was beautiful and the beach was amazing, but Port Antonio is in another class. Much less touristy and much more lush and green, a very tropical jungle atmosphere.

I won't bore you with our trip details, but we did nearly everything there is to do in Jamaica from a family perspective, so if anyone has any questions I'd be happy to answer them via PM.

I highly recommend Caribbean Dawn, the other great reviews are spot on. We were so happy when we got to the place, because we picked it based on the reviews and the great service from John, the owner. John took the time and was always very kind and helpful with all my questions. We were essentially renting and paying for a place for 3 weeks without ever seeing it, and we couldn't have been any happier. Wonderful place in a beautiful location with an amazing view.
