My boyfriend always brings me to this beautiful corner of the world. I am in love with Goblin Hill....The surrounding...the tranquility...the kindness of the people who work there. I feel like I fall in love with my life over and over and over. The rooms are simple, casual but tasteful and go nicely with the environment ...Striking natural beauty...sudden heavy... More

Myself and a group of 15 stayed at Goblin Hill and we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are a little dated but the property is beautiful. There are several well placed hammocks and chairs for relaxing and the staff is friendly and inviting. The housekeepers for our group worked together to prepare 4 meals for us and the food... More

We travel every year to Jamaica and would stay no where else than Goblin Hill! It is definitely a Special Place with its own wonderful and elegant aura. It's tranquil beauty, is surrounded by lush gardens overlooking the most breathtaking views of SanSan beach. A personal Cook is provided who serves you a delicious breakfast and the finest Jamaican coffee... More

We stayed here for a few days on our honeymoon. The setting up on the hill is excellent and the grounds are very well maintained. The villas themselves are spacious and well maintained but have a 70s feel to them - probably not much the ownership and management can do about that within a reasonable cost. The liberal use of...

I had the privilege, or the dismay, of staying here. The check-in, grounds, support staff, rooms and view was great. The trouble started in the night after a fun filled evening with friends an administrative staff tried to charge us $300+USD for $86USD bill. Ok, it may be a mistake. Upon checking out the next day, we were immediately hit... More

Where to begin…. On Saturday June 21st a group of our closest friends planned a trip to Portland from Montego Bay. We initially planned to stay at Frenchmen’s Cove; however they were at 100% occupancy and could not accommodate our group. Little did we know that this was the start of a very unpleasant adventure. We opted to choose the... More

I am totally speechless to see the audacity of that person when he knows that this review is totally false and posted with the only intention of damage our property. Here is my answer, sticking to the facts. I have documents (emails and video recordings) that counteract easily all the tales written by this person. We also reported the incident... More

We spent 2 weeks in Jamaica, travelling from Port Antonio along the Northern Coast, finishing up in Negril. Goblin Hill Villas was our first stop, and also our wildcard accommodation. For the rest of our stay we would be staying in larger traditional hotels. We wanted to spend some time off the traditional tourist trail, and Goblin Hill Villas in... More

Dear AdamSku, Thank you for staying at Goblin Hill and thank you for taking the time to write this beautiful review.

For years I've been wanting to go to Goblin Hill - Imagine how hugely disappointing my trip was!

Sometimes a hotel manager has to intervene and speak to his guests about their behavior when they are inconveniencing other guests. This person was part of a group of 18 persons who, from the moment they arrived at the hotel, were loud, vulgar, drunken, rowdy and uncontrollable. This is recorded by the security cameras at our entrance. Later, while partying... More

One of many short trips to Jamaica. I wasn't sure whether or not to give a rating of very good or excellent. I was only there for three nights. I arrived late and left early.
