I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and the experience was very average. The rooms are drab for the price though the beds comfortable. The cheaper rooms (around $30-$40) don't have private bathrooms and the shared bathrooms have only cold water. There are even cheaper rooms out the back that are quite off-putting, more like mini-dungeons. The building was... More

This house, built in the late 1800s, is full of Victorian charm. It is located in a peaceful area with little traffic, and is very near to downtown Port Antonio. The owners were wonderful, arranging a last minute raft trip on the Rio Grande and suggesting fun places to eat. The little cafe on the second floor of the "Mall"... More

Staying at the DeMonetvin put us right in middle of typical Port Antonio life. Being close to the town centre was great, and the hotel is just the right distance so that you can escape the hustle and bustle. We had a large room with an attached bathroom. No air conditioning, but we prefer this; a modern fan was provided.... More

There are many good reasons to have a holiday in Jamaica, particularly in Port Antonio, and one of them is the De Montevin Lodge. For a start, it's very beautiful, with charming wrought-iron work, incredibly made in Scotland. But the main thing is the welcoming and friendly owners, George and Karen. They are gradually renovating and decorating the building in... More

I just returned from visiting Port Antonio, June 2004. We had no hotel reservation and drove past the center of town up the hill to find a hotel. We made the best decision when we stopped at this hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk seated in a lobby of dark wood and antiques. Quite lovely. Our... More

We stayed one night at the De Montevin Lodge in Port Antonio on January 5th 2003. It was clean and secure but it's not a resort, just a very nice guesthouse in an old, beautifully restored Victorian mansion. It sits out on the rocky Titchfield peninsula in a small neighborhood of old homes that, like most of the rest of... More
