We stayed for a short time while travelling through Portland just before Christmas Dec 2016 and it was a wonderful experience. The service and staff were wonderful and the property is beautiful and breathtaking as you stand on the cliff over looking the sea and just enjoy the serenity. The resort has private cabanas and we chose the sea grape...

I came back for New Years Eve. Only three nights but amazing. They have opened Africana House. More of my Amazing. Although it is a villa (or should I say Royal Hut??!) with air conditioning and amazing furniture and fittings it is faithful to the African Jewish Jamaican theme. Check the website soon for pics. There will always be some...

More paradise on the edge with a breathtaking view of the ocean and an architectural splendour that is not antagonistic to mother nature. ..that is what the Africana house is. This is one of the newest additions to Great Huts and is a must-see. I can't wait to be back there to explore the mystery cave at the end of...

Much can be written about this place and the surroundings. We stayed over for more than 10 nights, for the New Years’ Eve 2017, and we were left with mixed feelings about it. The strong pros are that the resort itself is located around a cliff, offering truly beautiful views over the Jamaican sea. You are located in a strategic...

Thank you for your thorough and thoughtful review, and your obvious appreciation for the beauty and design of Great Huts. It’s true that we often have homeless shelter volunteers staying with us, but we try to keep overtures to our guests (to interest them in volunteering as an uncommon way of getting to know Jamaica and her vibrant people) minimal...

Great Huts is a must see for any trip to Jamaica! I spent nearly two weeks at the Great Huts Resort, and I loved every minute of it. The beach is beautiful, the views are spectacular, and the Huts are all unique. Great Huts has created such a unique and friendly atmosphere, and there is something for everyone! The newly...

Great Huts is absolutely amazing - from the endless hidden nooks ( tree houses, secret ocean thrones, cave loungers, hammocks nestled in foliage ) to the gorgeous vistas, short cliff trail, infinity pool(s), cliff rock diving boards, snorkeling, beach side loungers and bars. The incorporation of interpreted African decor with the rustic huts and general ambiance ensure a unique and...

Great Huts is amazing, maybe not for everyone, but we loved it. We visited in December 2016, stayed in a treehouse, and it was such an experience. The grounds are stunning, so many things to see and experience. You could stay here for days and not find every hidden treasure. Loved the infinity pool, the tidal pool, the African Lounge,...

Great Huts is absolutely amazing! A new villa has been added with incredible artwork, which makes this place a true five star place. If you visit Jamaica, you don't want to miss staying here because this place is a one of a kind!

I have been to Jamaica several times, but this was my first time to the Port Antonio area on the north east tip of the island. I travelled with my 71 year old mother and our good Jamaican friend 'Roach'. Great Huts is truly an experience. The African show on Saturday night was amazing, educational and so entertaining at the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Great Huts: Paradise on the Edge is an oceanfront resort on the lush northeastern tip of Jamaica. Modeled after a traditional African village, at once both rough-hewn and modern, it is a convergence of nature, heritage, spirituality and technology. Off the beaten path, but not far from the bustle and night life of Boston Bay and Port Antonio, Great Huts' jungle-cliff-beach habitat is a distinctive ecological and cultural experience. The African hut and Amerindian tree-house dwellings studded throughout the meandering, five-acre compound are comfortably furnished and decorated with uncommon African and Jamaican artifacts. ... more   less
