This is a nice property with a great view of the Bay, however is a little far away from everything, you need to take taxi (U$10 per trip minimum) to the beach or to get groceries. Firstman will take you everywhere, nice guy, he knows everything you need to know in MOBAY.
The property, plants, and view were very incredible. However, there was no sign marking the lodge, and we had to go up to several surrounding houses to try to find out where we were. It should be recommended that no one try to find this place at night on their own. The lodge claimed they didn't have our reservation. No one was awake when we went to check out in the morning. Clearly this is the place to go if you are young and want to smoke weed. Not so good if you are older.
Like other places in Jamaica the hostel is quite expensive. It's a bit outside of Montego Bay and you need a transport to get to the bus station and other things in the center. I liked the location in the hills, but for very short stays it could be inconvenient.
This place is amazing! Get a true feel for Montego Bay. a perfect introduction to Jamaica
This place had amazing views. Best place to stay in Montego Bay! Arlene was great and gave us a ton of information on places to go and things to do/eat.
Cedar Ridge sits atop Bogue Hill. Besides the terracotta ambiance, the central garden, the clean and well-organized rooms, my stay has been graced by a vibrant communal atmosphere. I sat for hours on the veranda overlooking palm and ackee trees and meditated from a hammock with a view of the bay. I learned how to make Jamaican rice and peas and curry chicken. I drew and painted with the welcome company of travelers and the occasional hummingbird. Great experience! Highly recommend it.
Really loved my stay in Cedar Ridge!!! Arlene is so nice and helpful to us and left me a GREAT first impression of the country! Definitely a place worth staying for ur trip in Jamaica!!!
CR is nestled in the hills of Montego Bay and offers a secure and calm environment. You will wake up to the most incredible view of Montego Bay--don't forget to take it all in. While CR isn't close to the beach, it's a nice escape from the hubub of the city...and it's quite easy to catch a cab to the hip strip and beyond. Arlene is VERY helpful and was a gem throughout our whole stay on the island. She extended an invite to a local Rasta festival--our favorite day of the entire 9 days! THANKS!
Best hostel experience so far! Arlene is very helpful and so does all staff there! Had a great Christmas dinner with everyone stayed there. Sweet memory!!
To me, the best Montego Place if you want to spend a real & quiet jamaican way of life, with in addition a warm welcome a wonderful view of the bay !
