Reviewed May 10, 2013

On a recent visit with another couple of friends we totally enjoyed our stay at Trident Hotel, a new addition in the Geejam group. The completely renovated property is by far one of the best hotels in Jamaica and the Caribbean, the service is friendly and impeccable, the food at the restaurant is inventive, deliciously prepared and presented, a fusion of Jamaican classics and world cuisine. We stayed at the superb two bedroom Compass Villa, but all rooms are spacious and have a fantastic sea view. The beach is small but romantic and well organized and any excursion in the Port Antonio area you might be willing to take is perfectly organized. Kudos to owners and developers Jon baker and Michael Lee Chin for turning this decaying place into a showstopper!!

Room Tip: All rooms are great with space and great sea views

We arrived at Trident Villas unsure of quite what to expect and immediately fell in love with the hotel the surroundings and its staff. The hotel itself is small with 12 private villas but each is decorated and finished to an exceptionally high standard, spacious, gleamingly fresh and inviting , each has its own private plunge pool facing the sea - which can be heated on request - if the jamaican sun isn't quite hot enough for you? as well as a spacious lounge and bedroom area , and a massive bathroom and walk in shower with an outdoor bath with views of the sea (well Villa 10 has anyway)
The staff were all exceptionally friendly and made the experience even better,as well as them being a great commercial for the local people of the surrounding area. We immediately felt at home in The Trident and enjoyed using the private beach area for sunbathing snorkelling and swimming ( theres a beach bar opening soon there i believe) Also the hotel provides a car service for local transfers to nearby Port Antonio and other attractions and all the drivers we met were friendly and knowledgable. On 2 evenings we had entertainment provided by a jazz Band at Mikes Supper club and also by "The Jolly Boys" a Jamaican legend. The food was great and the service was always "with a smile" i could go on and on about The Trident and its sister property GeeJam hotel and Beach ( also worth a visit as it houses a private recording studio where many famous musicians work - including recently Snoop, Florence, Gwen Stefani of No Doubt and others) but if you gte teh opportunity find out for yourself - I will be hurrying back as soon a si can make it

Room Tip: Villa 10 is a great location - only a short walk to the beach and very private

There is no where in Jamaica like this amazing place! Portland in itself is a gem and to have a property sit so close and privately to the sea is magnificent. The minimalist site and accommodation brings a clarity that embodies serenity, and above all the hospitality and service is incomparable to anything you would be used to here. I recommend this to anyone on there honeymoon, retreat and of course escape.

Room Tip: Villa 6 is right in the middle, not too far and beautiful at night
