It seems things have gone down the drain. It started with no one picking up the phone the day before the planned trip which pushed back our plans for a day. No one was present at our arrival although the head of security did a good job of making arrangements. My housekeeper did not arrive I had to make the... More

I just keep going back. Great for meeting friends or a romantic getaway. Peaceful, relaxed, no schedules, no hurry. The staff makes your meals and serves them on the porch overlooking the Caribbean. Perfect.

We just returned from a 3 day stay at Goblin Hill and the property was absolutely beautiful and the staff were beyond amazing - super attentive and kind.

From the moment we walked into Goblin Hill we felt as if we belonged there. The staff was so friendly, accommodating and even reached out to us before our travels to ask what we wanted to stock the refrigerator with. The property is incredible, lavish and the views are to die for from all around the property but especially from... More

Wow! The views and service are spectacular. Having a personal chef really added to the experience as well. This is a great place to get away for a few days or longer. I'm really looking forward to returning soon.

We absolutely loved our stay at Goblin Hill. It was like being guests in another era at a private Jamaican estate with detached villas. Wonderful garden setting, quiet, amazing ocean views, nearby beaches (don't miss Frenchman's Cove!). Part of the charm is the louvered windows to let the fresh air flow with a real Jamaica vibe. And nothing I have... More

A large, lush, beachfront property dotted with villas surrounding a pool, tennis court and a small, quaint building housing a bar and office. The villas are tropical, spacious, clean and well lit. The staff cooks delicious, home-made Jamaican breakfast and dinner, along with really fresh local fruit. The owner is very helpful in coordinating interesting day trips.

I first stayed at Goblin Hill in June 1976 with this being my forth visit since then and I declare what was very warm and inviting is now glorious, serene, warm, private and elegant in beauty. We had our meal prepared in our villa and enjoyed every tasty morsel of the local cuisine. The rooms were large and tastefully appointed.... More

Dear Africanson, What a wonderful review! This is what every hotel owner or manager dreams about, an appreciative repeat guest who notices your work in improving and upgrading your property, for the greater satisfaction of its guests... Your 4th visit since 1976! That means you first came to Goblin Hill only 4 years after it opened. I do agree with... More
