  • A moral dilemma for our degenerate times. When you find a 5-star eating house nobody knows about, do you give it the 5 stars that it deserves - or do you keep quiet, so that the inevitable crowds won'...  more »
  • The Fort itself is a very interesting place. We had an excellent tour guide who told everything that we are interested. Unfortunately, almost nothing except the Fort has survived. That is from the city, which at one time was comparable to Boston, almost nothing is left. Unfortunately, even the part that survived after the earthquake, has not survived. Around the Fort, as saying local, safe but watch out there nothing more.

  • It's a great reminder of the wonderful history of Jamaica. The main defensive fort for what was the busiest port this side of the world and possibly one of the richest cities as well. Taking the tour is a wonderful experience, especially for history buffs. At the end of it, you can go walk the streets of Port Royal, view the harbour or (my favorite) visit Gloria's
  • Best place to come and relax and enjoy a good family moment... Great and ideal place for couples... thanks to my team UDC making developments happen
  • This was an amazing visit! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. He was also very detailed and I did not feel like they were rushing the tour. If you want to get some history about Port Royal, this is a must see.
  • Amazing time travel into the treasure of Port Royal. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the learning experience fun. Admission was locals: $600 and visitors: 15usd but it was all worth it. Makes u really appreciate the history behind this little island we love.
  • It was a great experience. Everyone was friendly
