I drove down the bumpy road into Great Huts with excitement... I had told my wife of all of our plans on our Jamaican tour, but saved this place as a secret for our anniversary. Passing through the gates is really like entering another world, the deepest tropics, a jungle landscape at once conjuring shipwrecked despair and a profound mysticism.... More

I spent a night at the Great Huts in Boston Bay. Not the ubiquitous offering a standardized all inclusive setting that many have come to expect in parts of Jamaica, Great Huts has character, individuality, uniqueness, and the type of accommodation that provides an impression that will always remain with you. The hotel has a number of different huts spaced... More

First, these are huts; no real walls, definitely no air con, shared bathrooms and showers for most huts and mosquito nets are necessary. If that's all ok for you, and even if it's just at the edge of your comfort zone, this place is wonderful. We stayed in the Kaya hut which was very large, had 2 double beds on... More

We went to Great Huts in December of 2013 and stayed for a week after a recommendation from a couple of friends. Great Huts is an exquisite and unique experience. Our recommendation would be to go there as a couple or with a group of friends (the hotel is kid friendly but would be more enjoyed by young/older couples alike.... More

I recently stayed the weekend in the Queen of Sheba suite with my daughter and 5 of her friends. Its multi-storied with two 'bathrooms', one outdoors, the other inside with curtains as walls (ie. not much privacy but you can always ask your friends to go upstairs so they can't hear you as the kids did with each other!)

I've stayed in just about every type of accommodation Jamaica has to offer, from beach huts to backpackers hostels to luxury five star hotels. Great Huts stands out as completely unique. A bunch of individually designed, specially themed huts amidst a tropical forest and overlooking Jamaica's best surfing beach, Boston Bay, great huts is a cure for the cookie cutter... More

For me, Great Huts is a heady, soulful, spiritual combination of Jamaica meets Bali en route to the Motherland, Africa. GH is for the most discerning of visitor; one that is aware and is not timid to dive further into themselves. If you're looking for seclusion, GH will give you that and more. A sign of a 'good' hotel for... More

Great Huts is simply amazing!

I heard about Great Huts two years ago and was determined to make that my destination on this trip to Jamaica. I was not disappointed! We stayed in the Queen of Sheba hut -three wonderful levels to get intimate with nature, showering under, sleeping above, and hanging out over the tree branches! There were cozy nooks with hammocks and seats... More

It was my 2nd trip to Great Huts. I love the relaxing atmosphere, the whole concept and the way each hut is unique and designed to fit the landscape. On my last trip we stayed at Tabernacle hut and this time I spent some time searching on the internet for the best hut. In the end we chose Sea Grape... More
