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.

Thank you Daniel, sorry I was not there to meet you and glad you had a great time. I hope that on your next visit to Jamaica that you will come and visit with us so we can meet. Glad that Firstman took care of you and your transportation needs. One Love

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.

Hi Amy, Thank you so much for your feedback, it all helps. I apologize that for your disappointed. It seems our service was not up to the usual informative warmth. We are a home hostel & consequently do not advertise for security reasons - we usually only share location with travelers & select drivers. I was not there & clearly there were some shortcomings. We would love to offer you - by way of compensation 2 complimentary nights, if you come back to Jamaica, allow us to redeem ourselves.

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.

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.

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!
