Incredible Experience

  • 5 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.

super getaway

  • 5 of 5

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

you MUST stay here!!!

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.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely gorgeous with some updates. This is the second year in a row my family (including two very young babies) and I have been there and its just the thing we need to escape our busy life in the states. Jason the grounds keeper was great and his hospitality was on point. Made us dinner on request and drove us around. Caribben dawn new pool was just perfect. Kids woke up went to the pool, ate breake fast, pool, beach, pool again and they were both out by 8pm wearing themselves out. Room was great, clean and the owner was there and actual built a rail for the bunk bed when saw that we had young kids and did it all before bed time. What s great place we found! We can't to go back next year.

We love staying at the Caribbean Dawn and have been coming for the past several years. Overall it is clean and well managed. Jason the manager took care of all our needs. We enjoy our morning coffee on the balcony, and this year enjoyed using the new pool. This is a welcome addition, we enjoy the beach at Boston Bay and the two new restaurants we went to this year. One was the Cliffhanger in Long Bay and the other was the Olde Marina in Port Antonio both were excellent. We look forward to our next visit. Frank and Ellen NY

WILL NOT RETURN!

  • 1 of 5

Caribbean Dawn has so much potential but lacks in daily maintenance, administration, set policies and/or procedures for both guests and Property Manager. It is so lacking that we were forced to cut short our recent stay and will not return. The view at Caribbean Dawn and the morning sunrise is breathtaking and a God given gift. However, for my party of five, who rented 2 rooms (green and brown rooms), a decision was made to cut short our stay and relocate to a place that was better managed. After having stayed at Caribbean Dawn on two previous times this decision was not taken lightly. Our decision was based on several reasons but seemed to focus primarily on a lack of honesty with not only the owner but also with the property manager. Also after only 1 1/2 days of use the sink/basin in our brown room (bunk room) became clogged. We did not use the sink on our first and second day as we ate out. Since this was the room we cooked and all gathered in, most of our functions were greatly impeded. Management failed to fix the problem, offer any alternatives, (i.e. room change, or even a refund and/or compensation of any type. In fact as of the writing of this review no communication has been received from the owner or his agent relative to this problem. No apology has been communicated as of this time. Having taking a picture of the existing plumping of the kitchen sink in the brown room one can see that the plumping was not done properly. There are no clean out elbows, or sections that are threaded for easy clean out when blocked. The entire system is glued and needs to be disassembled, unblocked, and be professionally redone. If not blockage will continue to occur. Halfway through our stay we requested our towels be changed as they were wet, stinky, and simply needed to be changed. At this point we were told that policy was that for a small fee, $5.00, U.S., they could be changed. This was a policy that was NEVER told to me/us by owner nor property manager. This policy was not listed on any Caribbean Dawn website when I booked our stay, as I have the original website copied and saved. However the policy did appear on their website after I voiced our need to have the towels changed. This policy appeared late in the night on December 31, 2014, and was not previously listed. The property manager admitted this fact to me in a conversation we had on our departure day. Had I known about the change of towel policy I would have taken action on my ow

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Sorry Caribbean Dawn was not up to your standards despite adding a built in pool and pool deck since your last visit. We periodically update our website content. We posted our linen and towel policy on the website as soon as you noted its absence. Thanks for the heads up. The sink clog was also addressed when it was reported. Boiling water was used to no avail. Then, a commercial drain cleaner was used. It was my understanding that this partially cleared the drain to the point that the sink could be used and that you were satisfied with the operation of the sink at that point. A plumber was also notified and arrived the following morning to fully address the clog. The plumber addressed both the clog (all lines were packed with food and other debris) and reconfigured the drain pipes for the sink. This will make it easier to fix any future clogs, should they appear. It should be noted that a mesh screen was present in the sink drain. This screen must have been removed during operation of the sink allowing a significant amount of large scraps of food and other debris to wash down the drain. Going forward, we will remind all guests to ensure the screens are left in place during operation of the sink. Thanks for the opportunity to clarify our policies and procedures. Peace. JC
