If you’re visiting Jamaica, chances are you want to enjoy beach activities, as well as do a little partying at night. The hotels on the island give you everything you want and more at prices that are considered moderate to luxurious, and some accommodations even spoil the most finicky traveler. There are great hotels in all the cities and towns on the island, but some of our favorites are:
Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Jamaica in St. James Montego Bay. This 427 room hotel sits on 5,000 acres and offers guests seclusion, as well as pampering. The beach is gorgeous and the nighttime fun is hard to beat. If you want to stay in Ocho Rios, stay at the Jamaica Inn. The inn is one of the best resort hotels in the Caribbean. Guest have been enjoying the seclude beach, fine dining and exceptional guest activities since 1950. Moon Dance Villas in Negril is incredible. There are only 6 fully staffed villas that feature every amenity imaginable, and the privacy of your own one or 5 bedroom villa can’t be duplicated anywhere. If you want to bathe in luxury, try the Grand Lido Braco Resort and Spa in Falmouth. It’s a charming old style Caribbean hotel that offers guests quiet days on the beach, or by the pool, and fantastic romantic evenings and meals prepared Jamaican style. If you want classic Caribbean luxury, try Half Moon in Montego Bay. It has over 50 freshwater pools and two enchanting crescent-shaped beaches filled with palm trees.
