Port Antonio is a quieter and more peaceful side of the island. You are essentially staying in the rainforest and the Villas are absolutely wonderful. The ocean view houses are very spacious with a lovely decor and a full kitchen. With the more expensive rooms you have a personal chef make you breakfast (and/or dinner) with market-fresh ingredients. The premises... More

The place was recommended by Oliver Hill, the owner of Moon Hill in Kingston. And it turned out to be amazing. For starters, the view from the rooms is stunning. The manicured lawn and gardens are beautiful. We had a drink at the Tree Bar, which is one of the most character filled place we have been to. It is... More

Just got back from a fantastic week in Port Antonio. Goblin Hill was wonderful.. Villas are just as advertised on website--facilities were clean and well appointed, and bed was very comfortable.

I first stayed in Port Antonio in the mid 1980s, and have since stayed four times. It is a rare place that has remained unspoiled even after all those years.
