We picked Jamaica as our Spring Break destination and lucked out by finding Great Huts on the internet. We took one look at Fig Tree Hut and booked immediately. I cannot believe that the resort is even better than the photos on the website but it is. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you feel welcomed...

Visiting Great Huts was the absolute highlight of our visit to Jamaica. We actually circled the entire island and got a good sampling of many places, and Great Huts was absolutely the best of Jamaica. True to the origins of the Jamaican people, the African-themed huts were authentic and totally 4-star comfortable. The staff are warm and inviting, and we...

I had the pleasure of spending 4 days with a large group at Great Huts. I think I have to go back to my childhood to remember a time before this that I slept so well. When I close my eyes and think of my time back at Great Huts, I can still hear the sound of the waves crashing...

If you want to try something a little off the beaten track in Jamaica, Great Huts is the place. It felt like living in a tree house and the structure is perfectly suited to the surrounding nature. We watched the sunset while waves were crashing on the cliffs and fireflies were all around us. It is just a very special...

Great Huts on Jamaica’s northeastern shore is a great alternative to the all-inclusive resorts that dot the likes of Montego Bay, Negril and Ocho Rios. You won’t find a swim-up bar or a need for a color-coded wrist band here; what you will find is authenticity—both to the land and to the African background of the majority of Jamaica’s people....

If you are looking for a place with gym and other amenities, keep searching. However, you will miss the most authentic experience and one of the most exquisite views of your life. Immediately as you close the entrance gate behind you, you feel like you just entered into a piece of Africa. And you never stop of being amazed and...

Great Huts is a truly unique place to go and stay. The idea behind it is wonderful and ties in well with the general vibe of Portland. Earthy, chilled and green and with a little more thought could be magical. We arrived a day late to a two-night stay due to unforeseen circumstances to find they'd given away our room...

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
