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.

A fun and relaxing time at Jamaica Inn
I really enjoyed my vacation at Jamaica Inn. Because there are only a maximum of 110 guests, it feels really private and relaxed. The beach was pristine. The employees were all very friendly and helpful and knew your name and the bar staff remembered what you like to drink. The rooms were nice and bed was very comfortable. I most liked the excursion to Dunn's River Falls. My 2 friends and I arranged a boat trip to the Falls. It was just the 3 of us in a small boat. We went early and were the first ones to climb up that date. It was awesome having the whole place to ourselves. Our guide, Thompson was great and took a lot of pictures for us and made sure we were safe. There are lots of other activities close to the hotel - Dolphin Cove, Hooves horseback riding on the Mystic Mountain which has ziplining and a bobsled ride. The hotel arranged for us to go to a turtle hatching one late afternoon and we witnessed 139 baby Hawksbill turtles make it to the sea. The hotel as a good gym with treadmills, bicycle and elliptical trainer as well as free weights and weight machines and exercise balls. The food was very good and there were healthy choices for people looking to eat healthy. My only complaint was that the wine list was pretty limited.More

THIS is what I hoped for when visiting Jamaica. It took me staying at the WRONG resort in Ocho Rios to understand that Jamaica Inn has it ALL for discerning, luxury travelers who appreciate relationship-driven service, fine touches, exceptional cuisine and a tranquil, unencumbered environment. Perfect: Rooms...effectiveky a suite with the living room "outdoors." Movie-like perfection from the white linen draped couches to well kept plantation-styled woodwork and finishes. Refreshingly missing technology (I have never NOT missed a television so much). Beautiful bathroom with fresh flowers and scents. Perfect: Food. Real food. Real good. Real expensive (and not included) but totally worth every penny. White glove service with charm and ambition. Outstanding cocktails and wine selection. A perfect cup of coffee to start or finish the day's meals. Perfect: The Pool/Beach/Beach Bar/Ocean. Maybe the most exquisite stretch of warm sand and water I have enjoyed. A beautiful pool and beach bar for when the time on the sand under the thatched umbrella is done but playtime isn't. Perfect: The staff. From the resort manager to the housekeepers... Smiles, hospitality, genuine insight, light hearted banter, crisp formal service when required. This is what you want from a passionate and engaged staff. No wonder we met some who had been there going on five decades (yes, decades, not years). I could think up a few things that could improve but I struggle to see how much more I could possibly enjoy the Inn than I already did. I will let them decide what they want to tweak from year to year, it's almost too good to even mess with much. Jamaica Inn is what you dream of when you think boutique, luxury, tropical resort. Really, it is. Go. More

We found the Jamaica Inn to be a charming hotel with friendly service, natural beauty and rooms/cottages with unique character. The hotel and its grounds are well-manicured and very peaceful, and the beach is private and spacious. Most of the staff seemed to have been inn employees for years, and this was evident in how warmly they interacted with us. Based on friendsâ recommendations, we had made this trip to Jamaica only so that we could have a romantic stay at Jamaica Inn, and we were overwhelmingly pleased.More

Ups and Downs
We stayed in the Jamaica Inn for the final leg of our honeymoon-around-the-world-trip to relax after 5 weeks of travelling. Our impressions are rather mixed: Ups - very idyllic location: your postcard Jamaican dream - great ocean views from most rooms - a lot of service staff - professional spa facilities right at the ocean - nice public area (backgammon etc.) and watersports equipment Downs - Service is slow and "sloppy" for a 5-star-hotel (they carried away desks and the barbecue setup all around us while we were finishing our dinner) - WI-FI is unreliable across the hotel (it drives you mad) - the style of the hotel is very yesterday. They do not seem to have invested in new equipment since Churchill. - their offer of cocktails (esp. non-alcoholic) is limited - room rates are ridiculously over-priced. We payed 320$ a night for a simple ocean-view room before food, drinks and 25% taxes and surcharges on all expenses and understand that this rate doubles in high season. This is out of touch with what is on offer. More

I actually went to have lunch with friends who were staying there for their 40th anniversary. Although I live in Jamaica, I had not been there before. The beach is really stunning and there is an overall feeling of peace and relaxation. Just what they wanted. Every touch was perfect for them from the early morning tea on the terrace to the dinner served on your own patio. Lovely not to have TV in the room when there is such a perfect scene to look at. Upstairs room is perfect as the balcony is so private. Lunch on the terrace was delightfully cool and breezy on the hottest day of the year so far. My snapper fillet with escoveitch sauce on the side with potato salad was perfectly grilled. Would love to stay there with a special someone.More
