The absolute best! Hands down the nicest, best run hotel in Jamaica. The setting is stunning the water is crystal clear & the owner James & Mary are some of the nicest around. I stayed for ten days & I did not want to leave. I miss my cook Sita and her excellent local dishes like crab curry or all...

My family of four had a wonderful week-long stay at Wilks Bay. I felt inclined to define the word paradise to my five year-old as a result of our trip, including visits to the beaches within walking distance of the resort. "You see these perfectly turquoise beaches, the calm and warm water. Notice how all our meals are served to...

This place is just perfect! All the other reviews sum it up so well I don't really know what to add... we were so well looked after by James, Mary and their staff.

As previous reviewers have stated, this property the people who make it work -- Mary and James and their amazing daughter, provide visitors with a dream vacation for those looking for a taste of the "real Jamaica." Our housekeeper, Angela stated it perfectly. The people who work and live there are family and every part of our stay was incredible....

Hospitality is the first thing you experience when you arrive in this haven of rest. It was late evening when we arrived from a long trip and yet we found a table by the sea perfectly set with a light dinner. From then on we always had really good meals with great diversity of fruits, vegetables, fishes and local products...

After a week at an all-inclusive near Montego Bay in early February, we wanted to experience the more "authentic" Jamaica with several additional days off the beaten tourist track and far away from the cruise ships. The Port Antonio area, and more specifically the Resort at Wilks Bay seemed perfect for this purpose. Our expectations were exceeded, to say the...

Visited Wilks Bay for a week with my close friends and family to celebrate my belated 50th B-day and my son's actual 18th B day. It was our 4th trip to Port Antonio and once again Mary & James went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great stay. The staff is caring and warm. They make...

What an awesome place. We sought relaxation and we found it and more at Wilks Bay. The bay is stunning. A beautiful backdrop which you have a direct view of from your accommodation. Lovely pools, plenty of grounds for kids (and adults) to run around in. Small private beach worked tirelessly on by the team to keep in tip top...
