We stayed here for our honeymoon and were so glad we did. The rooms were great and we had stunning views!!! The don't have a restaurant so you are given a housekeeper who is there all day, cleans up and cooks you wonderful meals. We were fortunate enough to have Shirley who was so sweet and each meal was better... More

This is a special place. I did Peace Corps in West Africa and have visited multiple Caribbean islands on diving vacations, but my visit to Goblin Hill was the first time I really felt like I visited "The Tropics" in the old school sense of the word. The villas are impeccably clean and well decorated, and since there are no... More

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.

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
