From the moment we arrived at Goblin Hill we were welcomed by the kindest and friendliest staff who made our weeklong visit so enjoyable. This is the place to stay if you want to just relax in beautiful surroundings of nature and a gorgeous ocean view overlooking San San Beach in Portland, which is the most beautiful part of Jamaica...

This property is nestled amongst very old trees and flowers on a hill with a glorious of view of the San San beach which is within easy walking distance.

I read the good reviews and decided to check out this venue. We stayed in May 2015 but I must say that we were a bit disappointed. Whilst the staff at the front desk were friendly, the housekeeper looked miserable and was just not pleasant, so we decided to provide our own meals. I thought the grounds were average and... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and were so glad we did. The rooms were great and we had stunning views!!!

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.

Each "villa" has 1-2 bedrooms, good kitchen, large lounge room and deck or balcony, all modern and tastefully furnished.

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.
