Cost of Meals/Drinks
These costs are comparable to the food costs in your home country. The housekeeper can advise you if you have selected any food that is imported, with a higher cost. Wine is imported and will cost more than you would spend at home. However, Jamaica has excellent local beer and rum at good prices.
Some guests give the housekeeper a detailed menu that notes allergies and preferences; others just give general guidance. The housekeeper will do the shopping for you on receipt of an advance for the approximate cost, and will keep receipts for accounting each day or at the end of your stay.
The staff will pack a picnic lunch, or will serve meals by the pool or on the patio instead of the dining room. It’s your choice!
*Cost of food and drinks are not included in the rental.
Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements to Jamaica. Your Norse Hill local manager will be pleased to have a vehicle and driver waiting for you at Kingston or Montego Bay airport, and can also make bookings for air transport to Port Antonio from your arrival airport. The local manager can have a vehicle and driver available for you every day or just for the days that you specify. You can also rent vehicles from either arrival airport, or in Port Antonio. Local taxis are readily available.
A gratuity of 10 percent or more of the rental rate is customary at full-service estates in Jamaica, for good service. Consult your Norse Hill Estate property manager for guidance about the amount and method of payment.
