I have stayed at Great Huts in Boston Bay,Portland 4 times loved it every time!The location is great,right on the cliffs above the sea and he makes sure his property is very eco-friendly but comfortable.There's a staircase that leads down to the ocean and the property has it's own little mini-beach,which is adjacent to Boston Beach (a public local beach).Breakfast is included in the price, and dinner is optional (must inform them before noon if you're planning to have dinner there).My sister and I usually share one pizza for dinner and it's enough to fill us.The staff are very sweet and helpful.Cold drinks and good food are available at the jerk stands and little bar,which are located just outside the property's gate.The locals are very nice and helpful as well.Surf boards/boogie board can be rented there as well,and if you'd like surfing lessons. Great Huts offers a number of tree houses,tents,and huts to choose from and I have stayed in several of them...each is unique in their own way.Snorkel equipment is there for your use,free of charge.There's also a little grotto you can sit in and just enjoy the water.This place is not for the party crowd,it is for people who love nature and want to immerse themselves in the local culture.I would recommend sturdy shoes and bug repellant with Deet.Frenchmans Cove,Port Antonio,Winifred Beach,Long Bay,Blue Hole,San San Beach,can all easily be reached by a local route cab for just a couple of US$$.I love this place and what Dr. has done with it! It truly is PARADISE ON THE EDGE!
Great Huts is set on a gorgeous, totally enchanting bay about 7 miles outside Port Antonio. All I did was read in a hammock and stare up at the trees, sit in the cool stone chairs poured into the rocks over by the tide pool, rest on the benches, chat with cool people, and eat tasty (although not traditional Jamaica food.) It's rustic, maybe even rugged -- must have good shoes and insect repllant--which i embraced completely. It's artistic too - there are wonderful sculptures and paintings--the huts themselves are handmade works of art! Wonderful wonderful -- I didn't feel the need to outside into the town at all--although next time I'll plan to hike. Ah it was blissful -- definitely the coolest, most interesting and pleasant (not pushy, not too expensive, not stuffy and not fake and cheesy like most things in the Jamaica and not filled with people either on 'spring break' or worse too old to be acting like that but there they are nonetheless.) Best place to go in Jamaica. Go now!
