Villas, Resorts & Hotels

BLUE LAGOON VILLAS
Fairy Hill
876-993-8491, fax 876-993-8492; reservations 800-822-3274
www.portantonio.com-blmain.htm
($$$$)

This is one of the most photographed accommodations in eastern Jamaica. One- to four-bedroom villas are perched right on the water’s edge, offering exquisite luxury and privacy. Each includes indoor and outdoor dining, a full kitchen and sun decks. They come with daily housekeeping and meals are served by the resident maid-chef and butler. The villas are within swimming distance of the Blue Lagoon and Pelou Island, once owned by Princess Nina Aga Khan.

CRYSTAL SPRINGS RESORT
Buff Bay (1 hour from Port Antonio)
876-996-1400
($)

This eco-park offers camping as well as rustic cottages. There are acres of forest, fruit trees and a good collection of orchids. A good spot for birding.

DEMONTEVIN LODGE
21 Fort George Street, Titchfield Hill
876-993-2604
($)

This classic inn has 13 guest rooms. Like a quaint Victorian inn, the hotel has a homey feel and is best for bargain travelers. The home was once a private house, and is decorated with attractive ironwork.

DRAGON BAY BEACH RESORT
Point Ann

876-993-8751, fax 876-993-8971; reservations 800-633-3284
($$$)

These 30 villas are perched on a private lagoon. Choose from one, two or three bedrooms, each surrounded by beautiful gardens and all the comforts of home. The hotel’s grounds are an attraction in themselves; you very well might spot hummingbirds and butterflies on your strolls.

INTERESTING FACT: If you recognize these 55 acres, it’s with good reason: they have been the backdrop for movies including Cocktail, Lord of the Flies and Club Paradise. Don’t miss the “Cruise Bar” – the beach bar where Tom Cruise’s character mixed drinks (and won hearts) in Cocktail.

FERN HILL CLUB
Drapers
876-993-7374, fax 876-993-7373
($$)

This 30-room hillside inn perched at the foothills of the Blue Mountains has air conditioning, four pools, satellite TV, tennis and many other free amenities, including windsurfing, Sunfish sailing and snorkeling. There’s even a Spa Suite with in-room facilities.

GOBLIN HILL VILLAS AT SAN SAN
Drapers
876-925-8108, fax 876-925-6248; reservations 800-472-1148
($$$$)

Goblin Hill overlooks San San Bay, Port Antonio’s beautiful harbor, and offers its guests peace and quiet. The 28 villas include the services of a housekeeper-cook, who will cook and serve your favorite dishes. The villas are a short walk away from the water.

HOTEL MOCKING BIRD HILL
Point Ann
876-993-7267, fax 876-993-7133
www.hotelmockingbirdhill.com
($$-$$$)

This 10-room hotel is often cited for its eco-friendly policies. It uses solar energy and locally produced furniture and the grounds feature local plantings. Even the restaurant, the excellent Mille Fleurs, uses local produce. This property is very popular with ecotourists and offers many tours that explore the natural attractions of the Port Antonio area.

JAMAICA CREST RESORT
Fairy Hill
876-993-8400, fax 876-933-8432
($$-$$$)

This 14-apartment complex has air-conditioned accommodations, two restaurants, tennis, pool, a disco, gift shop and even a massage and beauty salon. There are one- and two-bedroom villas as well as studio units, each with kitchenette, TV, phone and ceiling fans.

JAMAICA PALACE
Drapers
876-993-7720, reservations 800-423-4095, fax 876-993-7759
($$)

Jamaica Palace is probably the most unusual property in Port Antonio, built like a 17th-century Italian palace. The black and white floor tiles that surround the exterior echo the black lacquered furniture inside. All rooms are furnished with Middle Eastern decor (Persian rugs and unusual antiques fill the property). The hotel’s pool is built in the shape of Jamaica.

TRIDENT VILLAS AND HOTEL
Point Ann
876-993-2602, reservations 800-428-4734
www.tridentvillas.com
($$$$) (all-inclusive optional)

This longtime favorite of the well-heeled crowd is one of Port Antonio’s top resorts. The atmosphere is super-quiet (when we had lunch here we were the only diners, and were accompanied by a few elegant peacocks that strolled through the open-air restaurant).

AUTHORS’ TIP: Look around for familiar celebrity faces. This resort has long drawn stars, and recently was used as a setting for the movie Shattered Image.

Guest rooms are elegant and private; dining here is white-gloved and equally cultivated. There is a small beach area, but most of the property is bordered by rugged rocks which are pounded by the sea night and day – truly a stunning sight. It is well worth coming out just for a look around the property and a meal.
