Amazing location, wonderful staff. I enjoyed the rustic feel of this hotel and the staff was very friendly and eager to make you comfortable. If you like camping without actually camping you will love this place.

This is my second foray to the city on the edge known as Great Huts, and my first visit since the opening of the eagerly anticipated Africana House. There have been a few changes implemented since my last visit, minor additions in the decor and some new installations of a cosmetic or functional nature, but the addition of the Africana...

I'm giving Great Huts an average rating because my first night was so awful but the second night was fabulous. First of all, by reading up on the resort you know that it is anything but conventional. That's sometimes a great thing. The breathtaking location and boardwalk snaking around the cliff are absolute winners. On the other hand the decor...

Thank you for your constructive criticism All huts are inspected and improved regularly as we are aware of the nature and surroundings of our resort. Guests of Lemba Hut immediately before and after your stay loved it and even proceeded to extended their stay. We will nonetheless re-launder the tent top fabrics inside the Lemba Hut.

Been here over a dozen times and each time I discover something new. Their new, second pool overlooking the ocean was a great addition! The only thing I'd change is I wish breakfast started at 7 instead of 8. Good food, excellent staff.

Absolutely one of our favorite place that we have stayed at. My wife and I wanted to visit Jamaica and really wanted to stay away from the city and found this hidden gem. It is right on top of Boston Bay Beach. We drove there but missed the sign on the left where the Boston Jerk Center is located at....

Words can’t describe the feeling of inner peace and tranquility you feel after just one night stay. Nestled in Port Antonio, Jamaica Great Huts is a rare gem. EVERYTHING is surprisingly amazing, the Afro-Caribbean culture, the uniquely structured room, the sounds and feel of nature. At Great Huts the date and time don't matter nor will you need to ask....

Great Huts is and continues to be the most amazing beach resort in Jamaica giving its visitors a unique and authentic perspective into the history and lives of the West African ancestry of Caribbean people as well as an intimate look into present day life of local Jamaicans. Naturally beautiful, unpretentious and simply Royal. They have recently opened the Africana...

We enjoyed the stay at Great Huts to the fullest. The staff is very friendly and them and Dr.Paul made sure we had everything we needed and more. We had access to a beautiful beach with hammocks, chairs above the sea to chill and an infinity pool which empressed us very much. The atmosphere at Great Huts is very nice,...

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 West African coastal 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, brand new 4-bedroom private villa, 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
