Trident is a boutique hotel (14 rooms) that is both sophisticated as well as comfortable. One of my best stays anywhere.
I was fortunate to relax and rejuvenate at the Trident for 7 days. I arrived a day early and they quickly greeted me and got me checked into a room. Strangely, I had to change rooms the next morning to all but the same room (room 1 to 3).
Lobby is open and beautiful.Front desk is positive and professional.
Staff throughout the property has certainly been trained. Professionalism and a clear focus on a positive guest experience stayed consistent throughout my stay. i was always acknowledged and greeted by name. That's important.
Each villa I stayed in (1 and 3) was airy, large and modern and attractively decorated. Caribbean feel but not trite or tommy bahama.
Did I mention each villa spotlessly clean! The mini bar and ice were always refreshed. Oh yeah, large private patio with a plunge pool too! The grounds, hotel pool and beach were all but impeccable.
The only detail I feel could be improved is towels--they need to be softer and fluffier.
I extended my stay an additional and stayed at the Trident Castle (Pink room). It's work in progress and I'm sure it will become just as fabulous as Trident and Geejam.
Trident is close enough to Port Antonio to walk and experience some of he local flavor, cafes and restaurants (several local cafe reviews). Most people used a driver from the hotel. I enjoyed the walk and always felt safe and comfortable. After awhile, locals greeted me by name.
The Trident presents class and style without being pretentious and uptight. I'm looking forward to my return. Trident, Geejam and the Castle are creating a luxury destination market in Jamaica.
