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.
My husband and I had a short stay of two nights in the blue room. It was fantastic and too short of a stay. The room was clean, spacious, and had breathtaking views. The sheets smelled great and fresh, the towels also smelled fresh and were soo soft, the bed was comfy, and we appreciated the mosquito net over the bed.
The pool area was extremely impressive! What craftmanship! It looks really great!! And what a killer view from the pool!!
The view of the sunrise was amazing!
Even the walk down the hill wasn't too bad. Along the way we spotted pimento trees, cinnamon trees, pear, ackee, and a June plum tree.
Jason was great! Very down to earth and accomodating. His check ups on us were always timely and appreciated.
Most times its impossible to improve on perfection, but I have a suggestion, perhaps a ping pong table and/or a dart board over by the picnic table.
Overall, a fantastic stay that we would highly recommend to others. We will definitely be return customers.
Very well situate. Rooms are very clean well equip with a balcony face to the ocean. Bed very comfortable and clean. The owner John is very helpfull and answer to all your questions, so don't hesitate to ask.
I stayed for almost 2 weeks...maybe a week too long! Finding the property took a little doing, needs a better sign..pointing to the hill and where to turn once up the hill. We had to call several times to find our way. The hill was quite steep and rugged, I was concerned about the cars undercarriage. I stayed in the brown room which had a makeshift kitchen with a gas 2 burner cooktop, and a double sink in the bathroom next to it. There is a large refrigerator which is present in all the rooms. The room was large with a large, high comfortable bed with mosquito netting...much needed. There is a small balcony, equipped with a hammock, overlooking Boston jerk stand...eye level with the hawks The Caribbean sea is spread out before you and you can see the sunrise every morning! A really beautiful view, there is a plethora of stars at night! There is an infinity pool which is wonderful to splash in when the weather is nice! It was a little too cold during my stay to take much advantage of. The price is right including extra days thrown in.
Now for my cons.... Internet is intermittant due to the altitude. Even purchased internet did not always work, so I wouldn't hold that against the owner. The balcony and rooms are not private...conversations are easily overheard. The dogs are unruly and a little frightening., They growl /bark at you, even at their caretakers, when not sleeping. But they are up all night barking. Jamaicans do not let their dogs in the house so all the dogs are out..what a racket! My last complaint was getting up and down that hill. It is not walkable, even for an ablebodied person! The young people staying next door were not able to navigate down the hill. You have to have a taxi (5$ each way) pick you up. The car on the premises is not always available or working. I kind of felt like a prisoner! The caretaker did check on you everyday if you needed anything.
So I have mixed feelings about this property...the price is right and location is good but I would not stay there again but it may be good for someone with access to transportation.
My partner and I had an amazing time at this wonderful place. the brown room is huge, a nice little kitchen and a beautiful balcony. This place was a great therapy for my partner whos scared of heights ;). beautiful view. the hill is quite chalenging and I decide to walk up with all my luggages. not a good idea...take a cab. This EGO decision wasnt to clever ;). But without luggage, we would go up and down the hill everyday without any problems. Be carefull with the dogs from the neigbhourg that already bite some guests and almos bite me too. THAT WAS SO SCARY. The neighbourgh was looking at the scene and didnt do nothing to help me. I was happy to be my partner who knows how to deal with crazy jamaican dogs. but , as you can see those dogs didnt take a star of the rate. Someone was there to welcome us and is very friendly. thank you very much and we will come back soon
I haven't stayed at Caribbean Dawn for a number of years and I forgot what I was missing! The best part is the pool which is a new addition since my last stay. The view is incredible on it's own but it's somehow even more amazing while floating around the pool. I love how big the rooms are and the breezes will always keep you cool. I'm a huge animal lover so I was very happy to have the dogs to hangout with. They are super sweet with great personalities. My mom and I had a great time and I can't wait to go back.
