Great location, views, food. The compound is amazing. Was initially worried about mosquitos but didn't see any and didn't get any bites. Be sure to check out the cliff pool! Also love the snake pathway along cliffs.

We visited for our 10 year anniversary. I am glad we stayed here, the experience was amazing. If you are expecting anything other then something a lot like camping, it's not for you! Yes, you are outside in a hut so there are bugs. Yes, it's a bit humid, just takes a couple days to get used to it. I... More

Great Huts is a most unique hotel, comprised of one-of-a-kind "huts" each with its own character, one is able to comfortably stay close to nature. The views are breathtaking, the adjacent beach beautiful, the staff welcoming and warm. Located steps from Boston Jerk, delicious Jamaican jerk is always available. Nearby outings to Winnifred Beach, Frenchman's Cove are recommended. Of particular... More

My husband and I checked in to this eco resort and stayed for 3 nights in the figtree hut. The views are spectacular and the idea behind being an "eco resort"--employing locals, supporting local community and building around the land vs. destroying it--make me want to only stay at eco resorts from now on. In some ways, the expectations were... More

Where to start? I have mixed emotions about this place. Overall, I had a nice time staying at great huts. We stayed in the bamboo treehouse which was very cool if a little weathered and run down. The view was absolutely incredible though! We had an amazing breeze almost all day and night which was wonderful. Once you step back... More

So Beautiful! The staff were super friendly. The breakfast was delicious! The rest of the food was super overpriced though, so we mostly ate at the jerk center on the beach. We also didn't get the same hut that was shown in the picture, which was a little disappointing. But over all, loved the place! It was an amazing experience.

I've said this to many in the business community in Jamaica: would that every hotel in Jamaica were like Great Huts, in its personality, scale and total originality. It's the ideal for development in Jamaica: it has an almost invisible physical footprint, it uses natural materials and sources from amazing local artists and vendors, it integrates nature instead of imposing...

Great Huts is definitely a cool place to stay. The huts are fairly basic, although one that I saw was pretty enormous and those that are situated right on the cliff edge have awesome views. Ours was not really weatherproof and definitely not mosquito proof though, which is a bit of an issue. The jungle setting and clifftop location are... More
