I'm not going to say the falls are a must do, but in you're in Port Antonio...why not? Overall it's a fairly small area and you'll finish up in less than an hour. Be sure to take the raft ride the locals offer down the river and have some coconut water on the way.

Falls is too good, located in a cave type of place. so natural and entertaining. Can make a small boat travel to reach the falls. Nice thing is you can dive into the water of the falls.

This place is closed at the moment because it is under management changes. The only way we were able to visit was because our local tour guide knew some of the workers that were there keeping up with some of the maintenance. There is a small waterpark that is no longer operating. Some bird cages that are empty except one... More

The Somerset Falls is beautiful but the cost is not worth the ridiculous tour for photos this should be a cafe or something where we could sit and view the falls and enjoy the surroundings, we felt after paying that this was a bit of a rip off.

I really enjoyed this trip with my partner and my family. The falls is a bit up steam therefore you go on a paddle boat. There is a small fee of $700 JMD which is approximately 5 USD. It is a very lovely place to visit however it could do with some refurbishment as they had an area you can... More

My experience tells me that this was once a good resort that has fallen below standard. I thought that the entry fee of 4000J$ was far too high for the minimal attraction that the venue had to offer. I went on the boat ride along the falls but there was no wow moments. There were meant to have been animals... More

We were very disappointed to have driven all the way there to find out that it was closed. We even Google it before leaving home. There was nothing online to state that it had closed down 😕

Very disappointed that they were closed for renovations and without any signage or indication on the website. All there was, was a poorly visible cartridge paper on the wall with no indication as to when it will re-open.
