About Montego Bay
Montego Bay is the poster-destination of many Caribbean holiday dreams, home to Doctor's Cave Beach, one of the island's most lauded beaches. It's easy to get to, via the large, local international airport, or the busy cruise terminal, and the whole area has been luxuriously developed with golf courses and rafting experiences, as well as beautiful all-inclusive resorts, which are some of the best places to stay in Montego Bay.
The city of Montego Bay is second only to Kingston for size, population and buzz. The Downtown area feels very real with its unique architecture and army of hawkers - possibly a bit intimidating, but the area around Gloucester Avenue, is much more tourist friendly, lined with shops, bars, cafes and hotels.
Gloucester Avenue is also just behind the crystal clear waters of Doctor's Cave Beach - which is a great place to snorkel as well as relax and have fun. There's also opportunities to dive or sail etc..
Our pick of the best places to stay in Montego Bay are all beach front properties, but vary in price from great value to five star.
For a classic Jamaican beach break
- Round Hill is a five star resort with a direct access to the beach and loads of facilities and activities on offer. This is the kind of resort you definitely don't need to leave.
- The sumptuous The Tryall Club is a colonial-chic hotel with views over its own golf course and the coast. As well as the large pool, gym, tennis courts and gardens, The Tryall Club offers private villas which have their own pools. Great for those who want to do a bit of adventuring as well as relaxing.
- The Half Moon Resort is a large, luxurious resort directly overlooking Montego Bay. This resort really has it all, from riding, tennis and gym facilities to a vast spa and a choice of kid's clubs. But it's also beautifully designed with seaside terraces outside and some nice antiques inside.
- Coyaba is a 50 room, owner managed hotel right on a stretch of beautiful white sand. Rooms are classic in style and there's a choice of three restaurants. Their interconnected rooms are a great way for looking after families and they also offer babysitting and a kid's club.
