We have been travelling together since 1970 and our recent holiday at RIO VISTA RESORT VILLAS must rate as one of the most delightful places we have stayed, a real gem. The views from the Amore Honeymoon cottage are truly stunning. Sitting on the cottage balcony you are above the tree level, how wonderful to see the Doctor and Hummingbirds,... More

One the nicest and quaint hideaway in Portland . You can have breakfast overlooking the slow meandering Rio Grande River on which rafting is a must . Lush green vegetation wherever you go, guava and Jamaica Apple for you to pick if the birds don't get to them first.

a cousin of mine had offered to provide me with free accommodations. I respectfully declined opting instead to stay at the Rio vista.One of the reviewers said it feels like a family reunion and to that I say amen.

We headed to Port Antonio with the objective of taking the raft trip downhill the Rio Grande. Our hotel was selected at random but Man did we get it right. The hotel site is outstanding between the ocean and the Rio Grande River. From the main balcony, the view is outstanding of the sun setting over the Blue Mountains as... More

My husband and I returned for another stay at this beautiful hotel. The views are as gorgeous as ever. Be sure to ask Sharon Miller, owner and chef, to cook you one of her fabulous meals. We had red snapper prepared in the 'run down' style - exquisite! We were well taken care of by the hotel staff - Andrea,... More

Rio Vista Resort is situated walking distance to the Rio Grande rafting terminus. It is situated on a hill overlooking the river has has expansive well maintained grounds. The hotel itself is quite typical of a small Jamaican hotel with comfortable but dated facilities. Travelers that are interested in staying a full service international tourist resort should stop reading this... More

Astounding views of the Rio Grande and Blue Mountains. Attentive helpful staff, useful proximity to Port Antonio and banks, stores, etc....it is a drive from Kinston or Montego Bay airports but that drive will separate you from the package all-inclusive anti-tourists. Port Antonio is what many of us dreamed the Caribbean was when we were young.
