About Jamaica

Anyone who's seen a photo of this paradise island will know that Jamaica has some of the world's most beautiful beaches: Treasure Beach and Frenchman's Cove frequently appear in top ten lists, and Jamaica has some amazing diving, with a couple of especially well known sites at Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios. And we have a really good variety of beach hotels and resorts to recommend, from small villa resorts to exclusive hideaways. Our recommendations for the best places to say in Jamaica also includes a cool, Blue Mountain escape, and some easy city-style hotels in Kingston. We’ve also found what we think is a great range of prices.

Jamaica in January looks every inch as much the perfect Caribbean paradise as it does in June, with long, fine white sandy beaches and a verdant green interior of misty, mysterious hills. And its gorgeous resorts and mountain hideaways are an escape to paradise all year round. But it’s not all all-inclusives and barefoot luxury, Jamaica is culturally independent from its neighbours, a real melting pot of heritages, and some of the best places to stay in Jamaica do more than just plonk you down in an island idyll, they also show you something of this unique island, with its laid-back vibe, reggae rhythms and dramatic colonial history.

Where to Stay - Which Part of Jamaica?

  • Kingston is a capital city: bustling with business, and Jamaicans going about theirs, and it can be quite a sharp contrast to the relaxed atmosphere of the resorts and beaches. Though Kingston is close to some very nice beaches too. Lots of visitors to Jamaica will fly into Kingston, so there are plenty of hotels to choose from, but if you’re interested in the island’s fascinating heritage, its music, or its lush, green interior, then the urban resorts, city-break-style hotels and colonial charmers of Kingston might be the best options for you.
  • If you’re coming to Jamaica to relax in a tropically idyllic resort then two good places to start are Montego Bay or Ocho Rios. Images of Montego Bay are probably tied up in your Caribbean dream, because along with the beautiful resorts this part of the island has some of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the region, Doctor’s Cave Beach being one of the ‘poster-beaches’. Montego Bay is large enough, and popular enough to have its own international airport, and its own cruise terminal, so it’s very easy to get to, and the whole area has been developed by the resorts, so that there are golf courses, jungle rafting opportunities and all sorts of watersports happening on the bay. It’s not just a bay with a couple of resorts, though, Montego Bay is the island’s second largest city, with quite a local buzz in the Downtown area. If you stay here, and you want to do more than just sit on the beach, you should visit Greenwood Great House, one of the only surviving plantation houses — most were destroyed in the December 1813 slave rebellion.
  • In the 1980s Ocho Rios was a quiet fishing village, but the Jamaican government thought this little spot was just the place to host international visitors, and now it’s one of the best places to stay in Jamaica if you’re looking for a gorgeous beach resort escape. It can be busy, and it does have regular cruise ships docking, but just outside of town it's still possible to find your own little stretch of beach. And there are some very nice, very private all-inclusives, and some very luxurious resorts that even folk who shun the cruise crowds will be tempted by. As well as the truly stunning stretch of coast, Ocho Rios has a lush, jungle-y interior which has been developed into a bit of an adventurer's paradise, with things like rafting and zip-lining on offer.
  • More laid-back than Montego Bay, and livelier than Ocho Rios, Negril is another of the best places to stay in Jamaica if you’re looking for an idyllic beach break — in part because this is where you’ll find Seven Mile Beach, seven miles of sweeping white sand, contrasted dramatically against the following seven miles, which are sheer cliffs. It’s about an hours walk along the beach, between the resorts, which are at one end, and the town, which is at the other. And it’s worth the trip, especially in the evening, when Negril livens up with a fun, reggae beat. Negril is also a good destinatino for families — you might want to look up the Kool Runnings Water Park.
  • Port Antonio is a bit more of a hideaway, a charming mess of elegantly dilapidating Georgian architecture surrounded by markets and little warrens of streets. And the odd strolling goat. Outside the town it’s lush and fertile, heading up into the hills. This is where you’ll find Jamaica’s mansions and manors, some of which have now been converted into some of Jamaica’s best boutique and small hotels. There’s also a beautiful natural harbour, with a marina filled with pretty boats and ships.
  • If you’re looking for something even more tucked away you might find the perfect hotel in Treasure Beach, which has a really simple, off the beaten track charm. Or up in the Blue Mountains, behind Kingston, where you’re more likely to find a very gentle, local Jamaican experience.

Don't forget that this island is incredibly busy during the peak season and especially over Christmas and New Year. So if you plan to travel at this time and want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Jamaica, do your homework and book well ahead!

The Best Places to Stay in Jamaica

For a Special Occasion

  • GoldenEye in Ocho Rios is one of the world's most famous five star beach front hotels. It has a collection of just 47 villas, cottages and beach huts on stilts, but the beach it’s beside is long and lovely. Inside the decor is all cane and bamboo furnishings, mahogany beds, retro-feeling tropical art and shutters. Many of the rooms have sea views or direct beach access, and the villas have kitchens and living areas. The resort also offers complimentary glass bottom boat trips. And they have daily yoga classes, tennis courts, pools, children’s activities, and Jamaican restaurants. And, of course, this is where Ian Fleming wrote the Bond novels.
  • The Caves is a collection of just 13 cottages on a shallow cliff just outside Negril. Private, intimate and colourful, these cottages are the perfect hideaway. Some have their own kitchen facilities, and all have white shutters, dark wood floors, huge bathrooms and sea views. There’s a bar in a cave, a pool, spa treatments on offer, and there’s a staircase straight down to the sea.
  • Trident Villas is another very small pick, also with only 13 villas, but all of them supremely comfortable and elegant, with 1960s style modern decor of white-on-white and pops of orange and purple. The villas have private terraces and plunge pools, and there’s a gorgeous infinity pool in manicured gardens. There’s also a lovely beach, a gym and spa, and there are two excellent restaurants offering a choice of local, or western-style cuisine. Luxurious, chic and glamorous.
  • Negril's Sunset at the Palms is unlike our other picks for this category, but it’s extremely memorable, being an adults only ‘treehouse hotel’ with elegant bamboo chalets, set amongst lush gardens. There are 85 of them in all, arranged around an outdoor pool, with a spa, tennis courts and a gym in the grounds too, along with three restaurants and choice of bars, all offering fantastic regional and international dishes.

Classic Caribbean Island Hotels

  • If you want to sit under a thatched umbrella on a beautiful white sandy beach and stare at a flawless turquoise sea then Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, can offer you just such a Caribbean fantasy. This hotel has 51 rooms, all of them large and elegant, with four-poster beds, white shutters and sea views. There’s a pool, spa and gym too, and a choice of restaurants, on a beautiful run of terraces. Come here for the grown-up atmosphere, and an air of escape.
  • If your idea of the perfect Caribbean beach break includes a colourful beach bar, and cottages on stilts with tropical prints, bamboo furniture and shutters, then Country Country on Negril's Seven Mile Beach is definitely one for you to check out. The atmosphere here is fun and friendly, and there’s an excellent restaurant serving simple local classics. Great value too.
  • Round Hill is a five star resort, with a stylish collection of 110 rooms, suites and private villas. The villas come with their own staff. This is the sort of place where you can really relax. The decor, by Ralph Lauren, is perfect: dark wood on white, and there’s a beach, a beautiful pool, a tennis court, kids club, watersports facilities and a spa and gym at your disposal. The restaurant is highly acclaimed, serving produce from their onsite garden. This is the kind of resort you definitely don't need to leave.
  • For hammocks, bamboo rocking chairs, restaurants and terraces overlooking the ocean and every comfort you can imagine, try Negril's Sweptaway, a large but peaceful, adults only, all-inclusive beach front resort with a choice of six restaurants and an award winning spa.
  • Small and affordable, the aptly-named Idle Awhile, is a colourful, 14 room hotel right on the beach at Negril. Expect wooden shutters, terraces, nautical stripes or tropical prints, and gorgeous bathrooms. There’s also a beach bar and restaurant. It’s peaceful, contemporary and cool.

Some of our Jamaican Feeling Favourites

  • Strawberry Hill is an 11 room boutique hotel converted from a former coffee plantation. They still have plenty of beautiful Jamaican art and antiques, and astounding mountain views across the hills to Kingston. There’s an outdoor infinity pool, a spa and yoga terrace, a chilled bar, and a restaurant serving contemporary Jamaican cuisine.
  • Mockingbird Hill is another hilltop hotel, this time with just ten rooms. Close to Port Antonio, this elegant, eco-friendly hotel is the sort of place without TVs or phones. And its restaurant produces some of the island’s best food, served in an ocean-facing restaurant. This is the perfect spot for a proper escape.

For families

  • Unexpectedly small, but charming with it, Hermosa Cove in Ocho Rios has just nine handcrafted villas complete with kitchens which can be pre-stocked by the resort’s kitchen. They’re like elegant wooden houses, in a lush setting, with dark wood and leather furnishings and garden views. There are several private outdoor pools and an excellent seafood restaurant. One of the best places to stay in Jamaica if you’re looking for a home from home.
  • Montego Bay’s Half Moon Resort offers luxury for all the family. Overlooking Montego Bay, the location is idyllic, right up against the beach, and the resort provides plenty to do on the beach too, from horse riding to kayaking, and the opportunity to swim with dolphins. There’s also a children’s village with a kid’s club, plus playground, activity rooms, a sand pit and a wading pool. And there are 13 flood-lit tennis courts and four squash courts. And a dive centre. The decor is fairly traditional, inside an elegant white building, and there are 197 rooms, suites and villas.
  • Quiet, affordable, colourful and very memorable, Jakes in Treasure Beach is a fun hotel right on the water. The decor is an eclectic mix of antiques, with more colour, more stained glass, and more mosaic than you'd expect. There are 49 rooms, suites and cottages, some with their own kitchens. There’s direct beach access, a laid-bar bar and two great restaurants, lovely gardens and an outdoor pool, and they run plenty of classes - cooking, art and fishing for example.

In Kingston

  • It seems rather incongruous with the Caribbean, but Terra Nova’s interiors are grand in the style of European hotels, with antiques, chandeliers and heavy damask fabric. The exterior, built in 1924, is colonial in style, low-rise, white, with pillars and a grand entrance. There are 48 rooms, a really charming old fashioned bar, a fine dining restaurant, and a more relaxed pool and terrace.
  • The Spanish Court is a good pick for a short stay, as well as for travellers who want to explore Kingston itself. It’s large and white, but low-rise, arranged in a ‘u’ shape, with several elegant terraces, including one with an outdoor pool. The decor is contemporary, with dark wood furniture and large beds in the 108 rooms and suites, and there’s a fantastic international and Jamaican restaurant, and a spa and gym.

For great value

  • Negril’s Rockhouse is one of our all time favourite great value hotels in Jamaica. It’s a collection of 34 thatched stone cottages, stretching along a low cliff directly over the ocean, and surrounded by lush, tropical gardens. They have four-poster beds draped in muslin and outdoor rain showers, so they can be both romantic and practical. And there are three restaurants, an outdoor pool and a fantastic spa.
  • Catcha Falling Star in Negril is another great value option. The position, atop a cliff, might not be beachside, but it’s right on the ocean, and the rustic style adds to the effect, and probably keeps the costs reasonable. There are 21 rooms and cottages, so the clifftop pool, bougainvillea-filled gardens and lively bar are all just the right size. Some have their own kitchens, but there’s also a Caribbean restaurant.
  • We also like Negril’s Tensing Pen for similar reasons, it’s a clifftop collection of 22 secluded, thatched cottages — some which have their own ladders directly into the sea. The decor is simple and charming, to match the cottages, and they’ve got a gorgeous infinity pool and terrace. Plus they're big on yoga and spa treatments and there's the echo of reggae music heard throughout.
  • If you’re looking for great value in one of the larger resort towns the Hibiscus Lodge in Ocho Rios might be for you. It’s just a few minutes from the centre of town, but still has beautiful ocean views. This is a classic tropical hotel, with 26 rooms and suites, with tropical print furnishings, large bathrooms and sea views. There’s also a garden and a popular restaurant.

Travel Information

  • Visitors can either fly into Kingston's Norman Manley Airport, Montego Bay's Sangster International Airport or the Ian Fleming International Airport in Ocho Rios. These are all well served by public transport links around the island.
  • If you’re thinking about hiring a car we recommend checking what our online partners, Rentalcars have to offer. But be warned the roads can be difficult to navigate if you don't know where the potholes are!
  • Jamaica is tropical, with a tropical climate, meaning it’s hot and humid all year round, with with average temperatures of 27-30°C. Peak season for visitors is between January and March, when the weather elsewhere is rotten and the weather here is lovely, but it’s also busy during America’s spring break, which is mid-March through mid-April. Hurricane season is between July and November, so this is really the only time you wouldn’t want to book a trip to Jamaica.
