If you come to Port Antonio and you do not stay at The Great Huts, you are missing out!!! The hotel is located on top of a cliff, where the ocean and the jungle meet. The hotel is very exotic, rustic and lush. The grounds are green with beautiful animals roaming around and the hotel is eco friendly!
The hotel is wonderful for kids. Sage loved meeting Issac, the guard dog and Scarlett, the beautiful parrot. She especially enjoyed feeding the turtles every morning. We stayed in a room called Sea Grape and it was perfect for us! Sage enjoyed her small swimming pool and we loved the view from top of the cliff. We felt so safe at this hotel and the staff are extremely kind.
The hotel was founded by Dr. Paul. He also founded the PRM Homeless Shelter in Portland. We visited the homeless shelter and it was heartbreaking for me. A trip to the homeless shelter will change your life. I highly recommend that everyone visit the homeless shelters when you guys travel to Jamaica. Help in any way that you can because we are all one. Gently used clothing, under garments and shoes are much needed here!! You can make a donation and anything counts! xo Nini
Frenchman’s Cove is one of the prettiest beaches in the world. It is a special place for many reasons but what I like the most about it is that Frenchman’s Cove is where fresh water and sea water meet.
It feels like a secret place surrounded by lush, green ivy hanging down on every side of you and even swings so you can dangle your feet in the water!
There are two life guards on the beach so it’s super safe. It doesn’t feel like a tourist attraction and no one is there trying to sell you anything! We spent a whole day here just eating and drinking coconut juice. The entrance fee to get in is $10 per person and it is free for kids.
My tips for enjoying Frenchman’s Cove: bring your own beach towels and beach mat. Also bring your own water and some snacks. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
