Goblin Hill is truly a special place. This resort features spectacular views of San San Bay and the sparkling Caribbean Sea, well maintained grounds featuring the region’s lush beauty, a calm and relaxed family atmosphere, and excellent staff. Portland Parish is a bit of an effort to reach from the airports, and it is markedly different from the big tourist... More

This complex of about 34 two-story, self-catering rooms is on a hill with a nice view through trees of a scenic cove below. Each "villa" has 1-2 bedrooms, good kitchen, large lounge room and deck or balcony, all modern and tastefully furnished. All are nice, airy and there are nice surrounding gardens, pool, and tennis court. Four of the villas... More

Me, my family and another family came to visit Goblin Hill. Very Nice. When we tried to call, they said only 1family per room. Then other people said to contact the manager and ask. It worked. When we arrived we first went to Frenchman's Cove. (The hotel there isn't great) and was so nice to have even more relaxation at... More

We stayed at Goblin Hill for 3 nights and then went to an all inclusive in Montego Bay for 4 nights. I wish we would have flipped it and stayed at Goblin Hill for 4 and the all inclusive for 3.

This place is so charming and delightful. Once you arrive you'll be stunned by the views and the friendliness of the staff. Don't expect luxury. It's a very old charming resort. The villas are not luxurious, but have a "glamping" sort of feel. The staff are exceptional. Very personalized service. We loved the cooking/housekeeping, etc each day. Some things to... More

3 day stay there with the most stunning view of the bay to wake up to and walking distance from San San beach where we enjoyed a private birthday beach party for around 200 people The other highlight of the hotel is that the rooms are actually small apartments or villas and you get your own housekeeper/cook all day and...

Just spent a week in Goblin Hill villas beginning of March and on my arrival I was reminded of the natural beauty of the place when I turned off the engine of my hire car at reception. All I could hear was the birds in the trees and there are a lot of them. My last visit here was 2006... More

We returned to Goblin Hill after many years. Nothing much has changed. The views are spectacular. The staff are kind, very friendly and helpful. Goblin Hill and Port Antonio are very charming and old Jamaica. You will not see any typical tourists. The villas are completely worn out and in much need of a thorough renovation. Even the villas that... More
