I really cannot say enough great things about Great Huts. Miss Lloyda and staff offer up a truly unique Jamaican experience. If you want touristy, posh, or pampered, this is not for you. However, if you want something real and down to earth, there really is no place like it. We stayed in Akan Tower over Christmas and New Year,...

Great Huts. We call it ‘our home away from home. ‘ We have been visiting Great Huts since we were introduced to it by a Tour Guide in 2010. Each time we visit it offers new and exciting memories; tropical art; relaxing activities and serenity within our daily lives. Each time we visit: there is always something new, it is...

Great Huts is a unique place, and instead of reading the story of the hotel first we just booked it based upon the reviews. Other reviewers rating this place so highly must have really read what they were getting into or got a nicer hut, but we were unimpressed. On your way in, if you pass through Port Antonio for...

Unique site with-in easy walking distance to the public beach Boston Bay (surfing and swimming). The location and huts are very unique - however the individual rooms are in need of repairs, specifically the textiles and linens throughout. I would say the value for the expensive price of the stay was not worth it. The huts are billed as rustic...

If you are into modern amenities and conveniences then this resort is not for you. If you are in search of a uniquely natural experience then this is the place for you.

Great Huts was one of the best vacations I have ever taken. Around every corner was another beautiful path, hut or piece of art work! The staff is friendly, the views are breathtaking and the location is unbeatable. I can't wait for my next visit!

We booked Great Huts after searching for "unique accommodation" - and this was. It's a wonderful complex, far from all-inclusive Jamaica - both literally (they're at the other end of the Island) and figuratively: the service was great but this is rustic beautiful, far from the madding crowds and with warmth. I got loads of good advice from this site...

Wild nature in the heart of Jamaica. The beach is very close to the resort and you can try to surf with the help of some local instructors. Try always to get everything for a lower price, if they ask you 20$ it means that 10$ are enough! Visit the winnifred beach that is close to the resort

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 African 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 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
