I have traveled the world and stay in many different hotels in nearly 40 countries however this is the first time I am writing a Tripadvisor review. This is the best service I have ever experienced without doubt. We have two young children and James and Mary and the entire staff went out of their way to make our stay...

After living in jamaica for two years and going to all the popular resorts, Wilks Bay is the best. Great hostility, the best food in Jamaica, and the privacy/secluded feel of a luxury villa. Hands down favorite place and home away from home. I will miss this place.

I've never written a review on tripadvisor before but our excellent experience at Wilk's Bay has prompted this! We stayed a couple of nights as a family, 2 adults 2 young kids and from the moment we arrived James and Mary were tremendous, ensuring we had everything we needed. They truly go out of their way to make sure that...

We stayed in Wilks Bay for five nights in July. We had such a wonderful time. Brenda, our housekeeper, cooked delious meals for us. Mary and John were perfect hosts, nothing was too much to ask for. Port Antonio is quiet but you can really enjoy the quietness and nature. I highly recommend French Cove just next door to pay...

I picked Wilks Bay because of its good reviews and fantastic photographs. I am so pleased I did! Not only is Wilks Bay in a pretty bay all to itself, has perfect, clean and relaxed accommodation, it also has amazing staff! Our accommodation had patio doors that looked out to a beautiful pool and a mesmerising view of the sea....

Our stay at Wilks Bay was absolutely fabulous!! Everyone was extremely polite and professional. The personal chef/housekeeper that attended to our villa kept us satiated with freshly prepared authentic Jamaican dishes. We love that is it located near Port Antonio's most popular beaches and attractions yet very charming and private. It certainly made it easy when going from point a...

From the night we arrived to our morning departure, everything went perfect. James and Mary are very accomodating. James drove us to winnifred beach, went with us for a very interesting tour of Port Antonio and we had a great moment listening some reggae music in Drapers one night. Wilks Bay is beautiful and the perfect place to relax. From...

We had a perfect 4 night stay at Wilks Bay in late July. Our room (upper level apartment) had a gorgeous panoramic view of the picturesque bay. The high ceilings, double-doors and plentiful windows (as well as great quality ceiling fan) meant that we could sleep with the sounds and gentle breeze from the sea. Jim and Mary were inimitable...

After booking the holiday with ease even after asking poor Mary about 100 questions before we got there, we were given a very warm welcome by James and Mary.

Three generations of my family visited The Resort at Wilks Bay, a beautiful boutique hotel located in the most tropical part of the island. This isn’t our first time in Jamaica; we’ve visited nearly every coast and parish. This was one of the most memorable experiences we’ve ever had. We were greeted with warmth and kindness, and our every whim...
