“Not much to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

No tours to the small fort. A small gun battery remains beside the fort. Not sure if you can even go inside of the fort. Not advertised as a tourist site. You can see on your way to Dunns river falls.

“Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit to Ocho Rios falls.. Our driver from Knutsfod company, took us them on a very comfortable airconditioned van. The ride was fun and the falls were beautiful. We really enjoyed our day in Jamaica.

“Beautiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We stayed at the Sunset Grand in Ocho Rios. It was a wonderful hotel with a very nice staff, and The food was great as well. The hotel is close to almost all attractions a little far from the airport, but well worth the trip! We were in the South tower and had a wonderful view from every direction! Even as the teens from Spring break started rolling in the hotel was still peaceful. they had everyone well separated so if you wanted to party you could, but if you wanted to relax you could do that as well. I will say if your not prepared the people while shopping (off hotel grounds) can be a little overwhelming. Be ready to say no and walk away fast;) All in all Jamaica was a Beautiful place and the hotel was wonderful!

“History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Once you travel to Jamaica just be ready to enjoy everything it has to offer,food,music,whitesand beaches and history.The fort plays a significant milestone in the history of jamaica.These forts were built after the English defeated the Spanish in 1655 so as to protect the country from the defeated Spanish or pirates that roamed the Caribbean Sea.Be intrigued by cannons that can be dated back 300years that are still present today along with other artifacts that the English left behind.Unfortunately these cannons where never fired because there was no invasion,instead they where used to celebrate a Royal families birthday or when the English discovered another country.Overall a good experience.
