Goblin Hill is located at the heart of Port Antonio's most coveted seaside district, San San, which encpompasses a sloping, wooded hillside peppered with villas that meets the aqua-colored Caribbean at Smatt's San San Beach. The hotel offers good value for families and couples. The grounds ave rolling lawns and love seats at romantic intervals, and a swingset for the kids, making the property a Top Pick. The property has a large swimming pool, two tennis courts and comfortable digs within easy walking distance of San San Beach, Frenchman's Cove and Blue Hole, AKA the Blue Lagoon. Spacious self-contained suites (US$115-195 low season/US$125-265 high) offer spacious living areas and small kitchens perfectly suitable for preparing meals. Each unit is assigned a housekeeper to cook and tidy up and can also take care of shopping. One-bedroom suites have the bedroom on the garden side and the living room opening up to the terrace facing the sea. Two-bedroom duplex suites have large master bedrooms facing the sea and a second bedroom facing the garden upstairs, also with the living area and small kitchen downstairs. The ground level living rooms have sliding doors that open to a rolling lawn with a view of San San Beach, Alligator Head and Pellew Island, also visible from the master bedrooms in the second-floor suites. Goblin Hill is well situated for all the best attractions. The interiors of some units that have yet to be renovated appear a bit tired, but upgrades are afoot and notwithstanding its worn edges, Goblin Hill remains a dependable stalwart of old world Port Antonio charm. Complimentary cocktails are offered weekly for mingling with management and other guests.
