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.

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 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.
