The Trident is a wonderful place to stay that seems to grow on you with time. After over a two hour trip through the Jamaican mountains we were more than ready to get out of the car.

Here for a wedding. Beautiful villa's in Port Antonio. Villa's were expensive but none the less beautiful. Staff is friendly. Can make requests for meals for thee following day, which was an added bonus for breakfast. For cabs, catch outside the hotel. If the villa calls one it is $10 a person for a $1 ride.
