As a multinational family that has traveled extensively in the range of budget to luxury accommodations, I can confidently recommend Goblin Hill Villas as a mid/high range accommodation. Our initial recommendations was through a expat family that had previously lived in Jamaica and frequented Goblin Hill for holidays. Personal service offered from the appointed assistant was a bit foreign at... More

Goblin Hill is a vintage gem. It is ideal for families with kids, or lovers looking for a romantic, mellow getaway. The place is a lovely "modern" (old school) 70s and each villa-condo is privately owned. Our Villa #16 was perfect for us (Mum, Dad, + 5 year old) - we stayed for two weeks. Our housekeeper, Blenderene, was a... More

I spent four days at Goblin Hill Villas (Nov. 11 - 14). From the moment we arrived we were met with smiling faces and warm hospitality. A cocktail party on the lawn over looking the sea - good drinks and coconut chips, complement of Cavil who worked in the bar. We had our own house keeper - Pamela ( great... More

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...

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.
