I had the pleasure of spending 4 days with a large group at Great Huts. I think I have to go back to my childhood to remember a time before this that I slept so well. When I close my eyes and think of my time back at Great Huts, I can still hear the sound of the waves crashing... More

If you want to try something a little off the beaten track in Jamaica, Great Huts is the place. It felt like living in a tree house and the structure is perfectly suited to the surrounding nature. We watched the sunset while waves were crashing on the cliffs and fireflies were all around us. It is just a very special... More

Great Huts on Jamaica’s northeastern shore is a great alternative to the all-inclusive resorts that dot the likes of Montego Bay, Negril and Ocho Rios. You won’t find a swim-up bar or a need for a color-coded wrist band here; what you will find is authenticity—both to the land and to the African background of the majority of Jamaica’s people....

If you are looking for a place with gym and other amenities, keep searching. However, you will miss the most authentic experience and one of the most exquisite views of your life. Immediately as you close the entrance gate behind you, you feel like you just entered into a piece of Africa. And you never stop of being amazed and... More

The Great huts "is" Jamaica's hidden one of a kind escape, It is full of sculptures which complainant the huts, They certainly fell short of phrase for themselves in their naming of the place.

Great Huts is a truly unique place to go and stay. The idea behind it is wonderful and ties in well with the general vibe of Portland. Earthy, chilled and green and with a little more thought could be magical. We arrived a day late to a two-night stay due to unforeseen circumstances to find they'd given away our room... More

Great Huts is a very unique place in Jamaica unlike most other hotels. If you want to get away from the sterile boring all-inclusive or high end luxury places, and would prefer to be surrounded by trees and hear the water crashing on cliff walls while you sleep, then Great Huts is for you. I'm a photographer currently living in... More

We came to Great Huts for some three weeks from far Germany, from Xmas until mid of January 2014. We had a marvelous time at this tropical hideaway. This was the best vacation we ever had, and we had a lot, especial in the Caribbean! It took nearly two days to discover the whole property. So many snugly spots, love... More
