We stayed at Great Huts for two weeks between mid-December 2006 and early January 2007, (obviously) including the Christmas and New Year periods. We had such a great time - we had booked the Seagrape, a lovely hut on the edge of the spectaculair cliffs with a private jacuzzi overlooking the sea.

Close to various stunning beaches (10 minutes to either Long Bay to the East, Winifred Beach to the West) and only 25 minutes from Port Antonio. Would recommend several good restaurants close to Great Huts (Norma's at the Marina, Dickie's Best Kept Secret - both in Port Antonio, or San San Tropez just around the corner from Great Huts) but make sure you don't forget to try the Boston Bay Jerk stalls at the main entrance road to Great Huts. Owners Paul and Nikki are very friendly and very helpful to give information about the area.

Public transport is excellent (shared 'route' taxis which pass the main road (2 mins walk from Great Huts) every couple of minutes and will take you to Long Bay, to Port Antonio or any of the nearby restaurants for less than $1.50 per person).

A nice mix of different types of people staying at Great Huts, all different age categories..... friendly Canadian couple with small children.... an American couple actually had their wedding ceremony at Great Huts during our stay there with their guests staying in the various tents/huts - great atmosphere!

Highlights of our stay were the beaches (especially Long Bay and Winnifred), Reach Falls, a jungle hike to a former coffee plantation / maroon village and the friendly people.

All in all a fantastic stay and if we go back to Jamaica we would surely consider coming back to Great Huts. We had two weeks in Great Huts and spent our last week in Negril. Negril on the West side was nice but nothing compared to East Jamaica.

If you would like to stay away from noisy tourists eating hamburgers with extra ketchup in all-inclusive resorts with prison style fences around them, jet skis and if you'd like to pay $1.50 for a beer instead of $9, if you would like to stay the real Jamaica with beautiful nature, forget about Negril, go to Portland and stay at Great Huts.

Carolyn Barrett of Barrett Adventures has been extremely helpful in organising our trips and airport transfers - commercial website links are not allowed here but a quick google search should bring up her details.

Nikki, Paul, Carolyn and all at Great Huts - thanks for a great stay, a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Hopefully see you again in the future.
