“Best part of Port Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Fabulous view and pleasant accommodations with a great overall value. Ask Andrea to cook breakfast and lunch for you while you're there. It's excellent, convenient and way easier than trying to drive around Port Antonio at night. If you do drive at night, watch out for children, goats, maniac drivers, potholes, drivers who ONLY use their brights, iffy guardrails, and blind corners--about the worst driving conditions I've seen including time in West Africa, Latin America and Brooklyn. Driving during the day is manageable for the confident. Hit up Boston Bay for surfing, Winnifreds beach and Woody's burgers. Nino seems to really care about his guests and we had a great time.

Quick word of warning: Don't do the drive to Port Antonio from Kingston using the Coast Road (A4 = utter misery). It is rough...

Stayed March 2012, travelled as a couple

My parents had a great time in port Antonio at the fan villa where their spent 2nights. Great position with a great view over the bay. The suite Was very spacious and confortable with a very romantic terrace where their kind housekeeper served breakfast. Nino, the host, has been very kind and helpful and organized their transfers and Tours. Thanks so much!

We only had 3 nights at The Fan (upper level), but loved every minute. We spent our Christmas there, and it couldn't have been more perfect.The house is remarkably unique in its design, very spacious, and has fabulous views over the Blue Mountains, and the ocean. The building design is a fan shape with a strong colonial feel, built in the 1950's; made from timber with a fantastic aspect. Some of the furnishings were a little dated, but for us, this completely enhanced the charm of the place. It was clean, had a lovely terrace, and our host, Nino who lives nearby couldn't have been more helpful. Andrea, our 'helper' made us delicious meals - real Jamaican style... Its proximity to beaches/waterfallls/the blue lagoon is great. My only word of warning is that it is up a hill, so if you are adverse to a little bit of exercise then maybe having a car may help. All in all a great little place that gave us a most welcome taste of the real Jamaica!
