Tucked away in the folds of the eco-friendly zone of Portland, where the shoreline hugs the sea and the nights glow as much as the days, stands the emblem of respite, relaxation and all things in between. It sits snugly among the trees, embraces the ideally cool temperatures and complements the natural habitat. It offers a peacefully endowed atmosphere, not uncommon to truly tranquil scenes and all those who enter therein can claim its soothing and rejuvenating powers. Kanopi House was created as the ideal getaway location and is unique since it offers no disturbance of its natural environments. Its structure also adds to its modern day charm and it is one with nature. Kanopi House features a certain inexplicable charisma which is further intensified by a secluded cove, blue lagoon, coral reef, surrounding rainforest and its one of a kind 'tree houses'.

We stayed at Kanopi House for a nearby wedding. Overall, the room was nice, but the service was extremely subpar, as demonstrated in the following scenarios: -When we arrived, the staff were on their cell phones and would barely look up to greet us. The young boy said "you don't want a welcome drink do you?" -They did not offer to carry our bags to our room despite the hills and numerous steps. -There is no phone in the room and they do not provide a cell phone, so when any items (food, hair dryer, iron, water) are needed, you must walk up the hill to reception (where someone may or may not be at the desk). -We pre-arranged a massage. We confirmed the massage time the day before and the morning of the massage. However, at the time the woman was supposed to arrive (it is not on site), noone was around. We walked to the front to inform them and they said she would be there in 30 min. She arrived 1 hour later and told me that the hotel had called her 20 min prior asking if she could come. This was not her fault, but the service of the hotel. (she was excellent!) -There were kayaks available, but we had to find the paddles buried in the dirt and navigate these on our own. The kayaks were poor quality and uncomfortable. -No mosquito net and a lot of bugs; no safe in the room; no wifi in the room; slow wifi at reception -Bar at reception was rarely stocked- no champagne, wine, nothing cold -Food was just ok, but expensive because there are limited options in the area The room was nice- situated in the jungle with a little view of the lagoon. The bed was comfortable and they kept it clean. However, this is not a cheap hotel, so I would have expected higher quality service and a little bit of a work ethic.

This is a hard one to rate. The setting could not have been more attractive, high above the Blue Lagoon with paths winding down to the hotel’s own jetty from where you can swim or paddle a cayak. Our room (Upper Deck) was like a superior treehouse, particularly with all the windows opened. So 5* for that. But the place really lets itself down. There is a run down feel. There were beautiful spots around the site but no furniture to sit on to admire the view. Lightbulbs weren’t replaced and the smoke detector in our room hung open with the battery removed - worrying in a totally timber building. Service was notably lacking. We asked for the code to the safe but the guy on site said he didn’t have it (“because what would be the point?”). He would ask the manager but we left four days later still with no sign of it. Getting anything - coat hangers, something to make coffee in - necessitated repeated requests. It’s not easy to go out after dark via steep potholed track so guests are rather a captive audience. Food was ok but prices are steep. We paid a wildly expensive 45 USD for breakfast of 1 omelette, 2 plates of watermelon (the only fruit on offer) and 2 coffees. So after that we ate lunch out and brought back our own drink and snacks for the evening. I suspect many others did the same. So 1* for service and prices. Despite all this we enjoyed our stay - but above all were left frustrated by how much better Kanopi could be with some on the ball management, decent service and more realistic pricing.

We were in Jamaica for a big birthday and there were 25 of us in a group staying on the island for two weeks. We spent the first few days in Kingston and before spending a week on the beach we wanted everyone to experience another side of Jamaica. I have family in Portland and wanted the other people in the group to see this side of Jamaica. Portland has always been one of my favourite places in the whole world. I love Port Antonio and Frenchmans Cove. Anyway, we found out about Kanopi which was exactly the right size. We booked all the rooms for our group. Everyone was happy with our choice. It was a complete break away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. There is something completely beautiful about waking up and having the view you get here. You can see why they called it Kanopi as you are in the canopy of the rain forest. At night the noises of the crickets, tree frogs, the birds and whatever else is out there soothes you to sleep. The hotel is great, service is low-key but on point. We ate there two out of the three nights and you can either eat off the menu or they will do a bespoke buffet. Both were really good - the chefs here can cook. We were really sad to leave but I know I will be back.

Ok yes property is beautiful BUT management doesn't care about your experience once you have paid . The "staff" is hardly professional not a single welcome when you arrive or an offer to help take your baggage to your room. The room looks great on website and view IS beautiful BUT room is sparse - limited lights not even enough to read in bed with - one light switch didn't work, had to reach down and plug into wall . No instructions for use of AC at night time also uncomfortable Maintenance of walk ways is treacherous as you walk up and down to lagoon - they don't wash steps so very slippery Ripped off at our only eating experience at hotel Resturant Walked in for lunch - they told us no menus but what was available Orders two sandwiches with chicken Chicken. Sandwich on white toast and some chips Price for two was 56 US$ for two sandwich with tiny pieces of chicken Again they don't care about guest once they have your money I stay in many types of hotels and many 5 star I don't mind rustic if the property and staff make up for limited amenities If you are going to spend top dollar try trident might not be as naturally beautiful but at least you are treated well
