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...

Myself and a group of 15 stayed at Goblin Hill and we had a wonderful stay. The rooms are a little dated but the property is beautiful.

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...

I had the privilege, or the dismay, of staying here. The check-in, grounds, support staff, rooms and view was great. The trouble started in the night after a fun filled evening with friends an administrative staff tried to charge us $300+USD for $86USD bill. Ok, it may be a mistake. Upon checking out the next day, we were immediately hit... More

Where to begin…. On Saturday June 21st a group of our closest friends planned a trip to Portland from Montego Bay. We initially planned to stay at Frenchmen’s Cove; however they were at 100% occupancy and could not accommodate our group. Little did we know that this was the start of a very unpleasant adventure. We opted to choose the... More

I am totally speechless to see the audacity of that person when he knows that this review is totally false and posted with the only intention of damage our property.
