We spent two days at the resort. Location is perfect, however the place is in definite need for an upgrade. Walls need to be painted, the kitchen is run-down and the furniture needs an upgrade.The is no TV reception and the Wifi is erratic. Nice is having the maid preparing breakfast and dinner. The folks are helpful.

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. Everyone agrees that the location is indeed 'splendiferous', and that the service of a personal housekeeper/cook provided in every villa, to shop and to cook 3 meals a day, is unique. I apologize that you were not totally satisfied with the accommodation provided. We do... More

Goblin Hill is the perfect family getaway in touristic Jamaica where you can have a wonderful local experience and be in the center of the sights of Port Antonio. The Villas are perfectly laid out with an en-suite Master Bedroom and an en-Suite twin bedroom upstairs and fully serviced kitchen, dining and living area downstairs with your own outdoor terrace...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your wonderful review of our property! Your description of your experience of the spacious, well-designed villa, the privacy it provides the whole family, and the space for the children to play while you finish dinner on your own private terrace, is most satisfying to read, as it is just what we intended our guests to...

I went to Goblin Hill back in Jan/2006, I found the road sign and followed it to the accommodation whilst on a previous trip to visit family in Portland/Buff Bay. I am 1/2 Jamaican and have been going back and forth to the island for nearly 40 years. I was not disappointed in anyway once I found myself staying here.... More

This property isn't a typical hotel, the villas are quite large for the hotel rate it is very good value and although in need of renovating, (which has been mentioned in previous reviews) it will not deter you from having a wonderful stay.

I booked this hotel last mintute. We we're suppose to stay with family, but due to some unfortunate events we had to change our plans. We stayed here from July 15-July 22 and loved every minute of it. The villa was gorgeous, actually it really blew me away. My expectations weren't that high, often times you see pictures and the...

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...
