Jamaica Inn  

This famous hotel offers old-fashioned elegance on one of Jamaica’s best beaches. No wonder Marilyn Monroe loved it.

This is one of Jamaica’s top hotels – Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller honeymooned here, Churchill visited, and Ian Fleming sipped martinis at the bar. It’s won awards from Condé Nast Traveller, too.

It’s an intimate affair, with around 50 rooms. Along the front of the hotel is a private beach. And even though the hotel is in a secluded spot, you’re just a 10-minute drive to Ocho Rios.

Amazing hotel, perfect experience, great staff, great room

This is a wonderful hotel with great character and history. It's in a lovely location, with the most immaculate private beach! The staff were so friendly and generous. We got a complimentary upgrade to a way better room than we paid for, and they wanted nothing in return but for us to enjoy our stay. We were there for two weeks and didn't want to go home. Great food, great views, plenty of free kit to use on the beach (kayaks, paddle boards, boats etc), free rum every morning at the beach, and some great great memories. The management was friendly as well, and always checked in with us every day about our stay and how we were doing. Would return in a heartbeat.More

Exceptional hotel & staff!

Our recent stay at Jamaica Inn compelled me to write my first review! My husband and I just returned on Sunday and had an AMAZING time in Jamaica with, who we now call our friends at Jamaica Inn. the hotel is beautifully designed with a classic Caribbean charm. Food - outstanding. Beach - enchanting. Drinks - delicious. Staff - a few members of the staff that made our stay unforgettable include - Teddy (most tenured staff with over 50 years at Jamaica Inn), Cherie (spa), Shana (front desk), Stretch (bartender), Nordia (gift shop), Jason, Kirk, Gloria.... This list goes on. Thank you!More

Beautiful place

My wife and I stayed 10 days at the Jamaican Inn in a Premiere Verandah suite located steps from the beach. The room has an indoor and an outdoor component. The indoor part was small and a little light on storage space but the outdoor space (the verandah) was large and beautiful and was right on the beach. The service was outstanding - they truly do anything and everything to make you feel welcome. The food is equally outstanding with wonderful choices available for every meal - whether you want to eat on your own verandah or in the very nice restaurant. Our only problem was that we had to battle with mosquitoes throughout our stay. They were very bad at night and both my wife and I got bitten many many times. It was only after 5-6 days into the trip when we were told that there were "vaporizers" available for the rooms to help repel the mosquitoes. Once we started to use the vaporizers it made a huge difference. If we had known this from day 1, out vacation would have been extraordinary but after 5 days of being eaten by mosquitoes, we had lost much of our enthusiasm. I would have to recommend this place as the food, service and accommodations are top pf the line. If you can repel the mosquitoes it would be totally unbeatable as a place to stay.More

Best place ever

I have been lucky to travel round the world and I have been to a few real good places, but Jamaica Inn is probably one of the best places for a holiday ever. The beach is quiet and clean, the food is excellent and the service is absolutely top. Thanks to all the people that are working there for making my stay unforgettable. Higly recommended.Yes, I will return!More

The private cottages, OMG!!!

My husband and I just spent the last 8 days in one of the private cottages and it was amazing!! They're a bit more expensive but soooooo worth it. Granted there really isn't a bad place to stay when you're staying at the Jam-inn' (insert obvious pun), but the cottages are VIP all the way! Complete privacy, there's nobody walking by you're room (all verandah suits/rooms have that issue). Private entrances to the Caribbean via cliff side staircases from each of the cottages. Some have private infinity pools with outdoor showers (go for it!) are an absolute upgrade. Not to mention the property is just breathtakingly gorgeous & the service was top notch. All in all just a wonderful experience. ** Also, the hotel will call u cab for $24 fee. However, if you hail a cab (red license plates only!!) it'll generally run u about $3/5, which is a significant savings. So make nice the a local driver & they'll be at your beck & call.More
