I spent a night and a day at Ivanhoe's and it was quiet and clean. No problems and I will make sure to keep it on the list of places to stay when in Portland. The price is very reasonable and wifi service was available and working consistently.

We stayed here during our entire 7-days stay in Port Antonio. The guest house is in the quiet Titchfield Peninsula. The house is around 160 years old and the decor is very charming. The rooms are done in white and the balconies on each floor are a great spot to read, look at other charming houses on the street, or...

We stayed just for one night at the Ivanhoe after visiting several other properties in the area and found it a delightful place. Spotlessly clean, with lovely views and it was very quiet. The owner was very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast (with amazing Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee). Port Antonio itself has little going for it, with...

We took a look at 5-6 local hotels before deciding on Ivanhoe's - and we were quite comfortable during our stay. The entire hotel is unbelievably clean and well appointed. We had one of the top floor rooms, which has a spectacular view. The hotel is on Titchfield peninsula, which is basically a ghost town - which I welcomed because...

We stayed at Ivahoe's for 4 nights during a recent trip to Port Antonio area. The place itself is quite nice; we were on the top floor with wonderful views of the city and bay down below. Breakfast every morning was delicious and served on a balcony with the same beautiful view. We also enjoyed meeting other travelers there, as...

The rooms were clean and, ours was a small one so I'll have to say it was cosy. The bed was very comfortable. The view was amazing from the 2nd floor. The staff were kind and efficient. The shower did not have hot water as promised and the internet did not work in room. The vibe was pretty quiet and...

My wife and I were given a clean, spacious top floor room with great views over the bay, which is the room to go for if you want privacy and good views. 2nd floor rooms are subject to guests gathering at the tables and chairs just outside the rooms. Breakfast was very inexpensive, delicious, and carefully prepared. Xlnt coffee too!...
