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.

Already planning to go back
We've been home a week from the Jamaica Inn and we are already planning to go back next year. This is hands down the best hotel I've ever stayed in, and I travel all the time. Rooms are clean, pure white, with comfortable beds and good sized bathrooms. Our room had a veranda overlooking the sea, where we watched the most brilliant sunsets I've ever encountered. The private beach is powder-soft golden sand, and the water is calm enough to float on peacefully most days. There's good snorkelling in the bay - we saw tiger fish and brightly covered tropical fish. Your every wish is taken care of - we ate lunch on the beach every day, served by cheerful waiters who carried it down as soon as we got hungry, and whisked it away the moment we were finished. Teddy, the beach bartender, is a marvel. He's been working at the hotel for seventy years, and the man can make a planters punch that will blow your socks off. It would take too long to describe it all to you - the library, where we played chess as Marilyn Monroe watched from a photo on a nearby table, the baby sea turtles that hatched on the beach and were escorted to the ocean by staff and guests. The delicious dinners, the amazing musicians who performed every night, the jolly waiters and kind staff who looked out for us. The crystal clear water and warm, balmy nights. This really is paradise. If you're not there already, get there as soon as you can.More
Old Jamaican Elegance
Situated just outside Ocho Rios on a beautiful beach and manicured gardens. Large verandas with comfy furniture, white louvered windows offset by Wedgwood blue walls. Jamaica Inn is gracious and genteel – possibly a little too formal for some. Service and food were very good. No complaints More
The most amazing stay
Words can not truly express how amazing our stay was. For 6 days we were in heaven. It was just us and the ocean for hours everyday. The peace, tranquility and service were all by far second to none. I spent hours absorbing the sounds of the ocean on the very private beach or on our private verandah daily. Dinner was amazing and the nightly entertainment was fantastic. I can not wait to go back.More
The quiet place!
Our stay at the Jamaica Inn was wonderful from the start to the end. Besides the beach and the spectacular view, the service and attention of all the staff is amazing. The quality of the food is very good! The attention and care in every detail makes the experience even better. Do not forget to try the spa and take a boat trip. We have stayed at many hotels in the Caribbean, but our experience at the Jamaica Inn was one of the best. A special thank to Occar , always so helpful. We will definitely be back! Thank you to the entire Jamaica Inn team for the wonderful days we had.More
Vacation of Vacations!
My husband and I spent a week at Jamaica Inn and it was hands down the best vacation we’ve ever taken. Let’s start with the campus, talk about beautiful – the combination of green lawns and classic blue & white buildings with banana and coconut trees sprinkled in make for a soothing view from anywhere on the property. From the Restaurant Terrace at breakfast you can look down and see schools of fish in the clear turquoise water or gaze at the beach while an occasional server strolls by on his way to bring a guest breakfast in their suite, balancing the service tray on his head (truly amazing to see!). Our verandah room was perfectly situated with views of the beach and lovely grounds all around – while standing in the shower there is even a view of the ocean, breathtaking! The beach was warm and clean, the water a perfect temperature at all times. If you’re interested in snorkeling take a swim around the pointe of the White Suite and you’ll see a wonderful array of colorful fish and coral. And after a day in the sun it was always wonderful to return to our room freshly stocked with a bucket of ice and pitcher of water. The staff were completely selfless with their time and willingness to help. Every request was completed with a smile and a nod; they were warm and friendly from sun up to sun down while maintaining a completely professional demeanor. The food incorporated classic favorites as well as local dishes that used fresh ingredients brought in from nearby gardens and farms, as well as grown right on the property. Be sure to order the coconut water, you’ll receive a coconut picked that day from one of the many coconut trees sprinkled about – nothing fresher than that. We were fortunate enough to be there during turtle hatching season and were able to partake in the process of helping the hatchlings get to the sea. Learning about the struggles of building up the program was fascinating and it is heartwarming to know how successful it’s been in increasing the survival rate of the little guys, and breed as a whole. We are already planning on returning next year and making it an annual pilgrimage.More
