Beautiful property on a hill overlooking the water. The place isn't new by any means and there is a bit of wear showing (noisy AC fan, broken sliding glass door). But the staff is friendly and helpful and fixed everything for us in good time. Great meal cooked by the staff in your villa. Wish I could have stayed longer!

If you like holidaying at a villa rather than a hotel, this is a good place. Villas are not luxurious, but are in decent shape. Cook/housekeeper was very good. Staff very helpful and friendly. A visit to the tree bar is worthwhile. It is worth paying a bit extra to get a villa with a view over San San Bay.... More

Dear Yorkijam, Thank you for your review, and am happy you enjoyed the services of your cook-housekeeper and the peaceful ambience of Goblin Hill. If you would enjoy a more luxurious villa with absolutely knockout views, please ask for villa 27 or 28 next time you return, which we hope will be soon. These were recently upgraded and guests have... More

Goblin Hill offers beautiful views of San San Beach, near Port Antonio. The grounds are lush and villas are quite comfortable. We (two couples) were in Villa 10, which I highly recommend because Cynthia was our cook/housekeeper (of 23 years experience!) She spent a week pampering us with her marvelous cooking. On two occasions, she accompanied us to the local... More

Beautiful spacious villas. The grounds were well-kept and the scenery was breath-taking from all angles .Excellent service from our housekeepers-Nadia Hall, Blenderene Miller, and Wendy Taylor.You made our stay memorable with the tasty meals you prepared. Adding more activities will give visitors a chance to experience more of the Jamaican culture. On the whole an amazing trip.

Our stay before, during, and after our son's wedding at Goblin Hill Villas was relaxing, comfortable, and pleasant. The room service was dependable, the staff very friendly, and the scenery spectacular. Nearby, we took bamboo raft rides in an area where several American movies were filmed. Near the downtown area we had an exquisite dinner with wedding party members. The... More

Goblin Hill is a villa hotel with beautiful grounds and views. I stayed in room 25 (one bedroom partial ocean view) and I believe I had the best view on property.
