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.

Romance and Relaxation
If you like small, luxurious and well appointed hotels with the friendliest and most attentive customer service, this is a must stay resort for you. We returned for the 7th time to lounge, stroll, read and enjoy drinks on the private beach and be catered to for 10 days. The food offerings and preparation are excellent with nightly live entertainment. If you require action and lots to do, close by off property activities include boating, fishing, horse back riding, swimming with dolphins, shopping and much more. We hated to leave and will most assuredly return next year. More

Historic property lacking proper management
Chose this property for its historical significance and location. It's a beautiful hotel with many warm and gracious staff but overall is not managed like a 5 star property. We arrived a little before 5pm, after a long day of travel. We had to wait awkwardly over 15 minutes to get checked in and shown to our room. Unfortunately tea and snack time ended at 5 and by the time we got checked in it was after 5. I called the front desk at 5:15 to ask if we could get tea and snacks given we waited so long and we were hungry and tired after our travel, but was told that tea time was over and offered no other choices. Dinner was not until 7:30! Prior to dinner we went up for happy hour. When we sat down we were asked what we wanted to drink.... no menu, no suggestions. Even after asking for a menu, no prices. Drinks were ok. For dinner, again we were asked what we wanted to drink without a menu. I asked about wine and was told varietals but nothing regarding Wineries or price. Dinner according to the in room guide was $79 per person plus tax for 5 courses, but when I asked our waiter he said just order whatever, no prix fix. ??? In addition, the hotel has a "no sign" policy so you never know what your total bill is each evening. In the end, we were charged $44 for 2 drinks at the bar and dinner was $150 for 2 drinks and light fare. Bottom line is the service is subpar yet the prices are high end. Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel and the beach- just a few little improvements would make a big difference. I think the deficiencies are due to the owners and upper management not paying attention to the details. Given the the price of the room, drinks and food I would recommend other places with more value. More
Will return again and again!
This was our second trip to the Jamaica Inn (first visit in 2014) and they did not disappoint! Service from all the staff is just "top notch" and they are eager to cater to all requests. We asked to change rooms to one with a more shaded balcony and they quickly accommodated our request. The hotel itself is for those who prefer classic over opulent and modern. There are so many "little touches" that the Jamaica Inn does right that it is too much to list them all, but suffice to say that cleanliness of the property, care for the grounds, service on the beach, good quality food, etc... is all there. It is nice to see a hotel where they are constantly improving things and we noticed a greatly expanded wine list from our last visit. They took the wine list from OK to being really quite impressive. Well done. The only minor quibble we would have (and it is minor) is the lack of Jamaican food items available in the restaurants. Outside of Jamaican patties, the lunch menu doesn't have any other Jamaican offerings and the dinner menu on some evenings doesn't have any at all. Some Jamaican food did appear during a beach BBQ night and seemed very popular. It would be nice if some of this was available all the time as Jamaica has a rich culinary history. That aside, we had another great vacation and are planning our return. Thanks so much Jamaica Inn!More
Another Brilliant Holiday and a Wedding too!
We just returned from a week at the Jamaica Inn, and we are still on a cloud! This is our second visit to the Inn and this time we brought 24 of our family members to enjoy the exceptional resort...the beautiful timeless accommodations, the solitude of a gorgeous landscape, beach and gardens and the most friendly and accomplished staff we have experienced. All of these attributes make it rank as our all time favorite resort. Our baseline has been some significant world travel that we have had the good fortune to have experienced in the past, and again, the Jamaica Inn rates as our favorite. The Inn is truly the most comfortable, tradition-rich and beautiful resort. From the Owner, Peter, to the Resort Manager, Kyle,t o the Wedding Planner, Tina, to the Housekeeping staff, to the Beach attendants, Bar service and World class dining, it does not get any better. Our heart-felt thank you for a wonderful week. Heidi & BillMore
Exceptional in every way!
My wife and I just returned from an unbelievably great experience at the Jamaican Inn. Everything was perfect. This relatively small but quaint hotel does everything right. the staff to guest ratio is high and whenever you need assistance with anything there's always somebody close by. The cuisine was outstanding. We had a deluxe veranda room with the big veranda on the first floor with a stunning view of the beautiful grounds sand and ocean. Breakfast overlooked the water and was delicious. Dinner was romantic in the moonlight and the food was also delicious. Service was impeccable. We felt like prisoners in paradise - it was so good at this Inn that we forgot about our plans to leave the premises for virtually the entire week. We plan to come back in the future and we met many other guests that have been there multiple times.More
