Goblin Hill Villas at San San
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Port Antonio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Port Antonio is one of the most lush parishes that Jamaica has to offer, the villas there really a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the busy life that most of us have on a day to day. Goblin HIll comes with a cook/housekeeper and I've never come across any that doesn't make me lick my fingers after each meal. The place is peaceful and quiet and I love the rain that comes along with the place it makes it even much more of a getaway. You can even walk to the beach San San or Frenchmen's Cove.

Room Tip: Choose the room that overlooks the sea, you can sit out on the balcony for breakfast, lunch or dinne...

We had a great time at Goblin Villas. Joan was our housekeeper and prepared delicious meals for us, which we appreciated. We had a long tour and arrived late on our first evening, but Joan kindly waited so we could eat when we arrived - thank you so much! There are a few new staff, and they were very friendly and courteous. I have a terrible memory for names but Garvin (?) and Calvin both did all they could to resolve a problem we had with the aircon and help us when we got stuck on the wrong side of the fence after a storm!

We recommend Goblin Villa's to everyone.

My first time in Port Antonio and I am so glad, my cousin and I came to Goblin Hill to stay. When I was here I felt like how you feel, when you listen to Enya's song "Caribbean Blues". I love the peacefulness and being in the "Country". Beautiful and comfortable villas and lovely staff. I had the please of meeting the owner Mrs. Goodman and her Manager Mr. De Campos at Rum Punch night. Also staff member O'Neil was very attentive to our needs and Jody who, made sure the room was prepared, was very personable, informative and engaging. I definitely need to go back.

Goblin Hill is awesome, great hide out spot, its like home away from home. Ive been there on many occasions and enjoy every moment. I went there over the weekend with ma cousin and it was breath taking as always, the hospitality, the scenery, and the employee very warm and welcoming. The property is well kept and lush over looking the beautiful san san bay beach. I stayed in Villa 24 and omg i went to bed with the most beautiful sunset and woke up with the sound of nature, the cool of the morning the birds chirping. "Its better felt than tellth" (Jamaican saying). I can never get tired of GH for all you nature lovers, honeymooners, families and especially if you are planning your dream wedding that's the place to be. Its very Accessible and a central point to other famous attractions Port Antonio, the blue Lagoon, San San Beach, Boston Jerk etc. Thanks to Mrs. Goodman, Rafael, Jody and Ms. Elaine for making our weekend a special one!!!

This is my second review for this hotel, and I highly recommend it. The location is very relaxing and close to the beach. The housekeepers are very good, and Dania's cooking was excellent. The manager Mr. Campos, was very kind to upgrade us to a two bedroom villa when a leak was discovered in the one bedroom. How a hotel responds to a visitor's complaint is very important. The staff was very quick to respond and overall helpful. Please keep in mind that the hotel is not brand new, so if you are looking for a new location do not go here. However, if you would like a very relaxing vacation, in one of the most beautiful places in the world then I recommend you make a visit.

My wife and I spend the first week of our Jamaican Honeymoon at Goblin Hill. The views are really awesome and the grounds are beautiful and immaculately well kept. Better kept than a golf course, the property is tremendous. The villas are well kept and the staff is friendly and accommodating. We bought some fresh caught lobsters at Boston Beach and our housekeeper cooked and served them to perfection. It is located close to town and other interesting attractions.. Highly recommended!!!!

We stayed 3 nights at GHV as a friend of ours was getting wed there.
I had read and saw a lot on the internet about it. The place is very easy to find on the coastal road. 5 mins walk down to san san beach. 5 mins drive or less to the blue hole, well : very good access to town, the sea and linking roads.
What pleased me there : I felt the staff and management were very helpful and willing that you spend a good time, the villas were bigger than I expected with large rooms, large open full equipped kitchen with dining room, couches... We were in villa 11 and shared meals with villa 14 which was not a problem for the maids who got organised for us. We had laundry perfectly done for the wedding, went to shop and discover the market in Port Antonio, and had ackee and saltfish every morning (the best we had during our 2 weeks in Jamaica)
AS far as the outsides are concerned, I found no picture that could translate this feeling of being above and on the sea. large lawns to relax, swimming pool was great (we stayed late during the wedding night;-).
Price : given the services, amenities and he scenery, the place is a very good deal. Millionnaires rent villas down the road !
All of us were very pleased with this stay as we were feeling at home rather than in a hotel
Thank you to Rafael and his staff for letting us have this feeling.

Room Tip: Get a sea view or a special sea view to have your meals on top of the carribean sea !
