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.

Wow! Simply breathtaking and amazing!! Jamaica Inn is truly a special place. This was our second time here in 2 years. Our 2 week vacation here was beyond perfect! We enjoyed our Cottage (Cottage 6), the ambiance, the beach 😱(to die for), the staff...superb! Let's just say if heaven is on earth...this is definitely it!!! Kudos to Gerry, Dale, Sherin, Albert, Ovan, Oscarr, Rupie and the irreplaceable Teddy. The entire staff was amazing! A big thank you for making our vacation a memorable one!! See you guys soon 😁More
Amazing Peaceful Getaway
This is a very special property in Jamaica with the beach being a key highlight. The beach is private and you can walk out your room directly on the sand from many rooms. The service is very good as well. Location is close to ocho rios atractions. Great for couples or anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway,More
Great place to unwind
There are many positives to this hotel. It is a small property with a very nice beach, attentive beach service including food or a restaurant right off the beach which serves breakfast lunch and dinner. Even while hosting a wedding and being fully booked, the Inn did not seem busy and there were beach chairs for all, I would admit that the beach service did suffer a little but the beach bar is relatively close no matter where you are so it is not a big deal to get up and fetch a drink. We used Club Mobay for incoming flight and it was well worth it, we were drinking rum punch while most of the plane was in line to get their passports stamped. Many have remarked on the service at the Inn and it is true that everyone is kind and eager to help, I did not encounter an issue in four days, everyone went out of their way to make us comfortable. Although service is included in all bills, I wished I would have brought small change because I did feel that it was expected. Maybe it was me, not used to everyone being so nice all the time I guess. We stayed in the White Suite, #21. I am confident that I would not have given the Inn 4 stars were it not for this room. This "room" is the best one I've ever had. I write "room" because when you book this suite you get much more than just a room. Yes, the room is large, with a king bed, a writing desk, two chairs and a large bathroom that has both a shower and a claw foot tub, but what makes this room so special is that it is situated on a high bluff in a peninsula. You have extensive a wrap around fully furnished terrace, a full sized pool, a ladder that plunges into the only snorkel spot off the property, about half an acre of gardens with two lounge chairs, a hammock and a day bed, plus the "point" literally the point of the peninsula with 300 degree views of the ocean and a double lounge to lay in. This is much more than a room and you won't want to leave this place, we rarely did. Food is brought to your room if you'd like for $5, we had breakfast in the terrace looking out to the ocean, paradise. This room made our vacation, it was much more than we expected. As an added bonus if you are into birds, there are lots of birds in this garden. The food was underwhelming, it wasn't bad, it just wasn't 5 stars. There is nothing bad per se, breakfast has the usual choices or authentic Jamaican items, lunch choices were all good, specially the Jamaican patties and tuna melt. We had dinner twice in the restaurant, the first time I found the oxtail to be mostly bone and lacking the spicy punch of the dish, a jerk cornish hen was flavorful and the rack of lamb was, again, lacking in meat. I feel that the dining experience should reflect the $30-40 entree price. Over all the room did it for me and we are very glad to have visited.More
My wife and I stayed here for three nights, leaving the 4th of July. We had the full breakfast meal plan during our stay. Our room was the deluxe veranda. We had a wonderful stay. The Jamaica Inn has done a remarkable job combining tradition(s) and staying current, and seems to strike the right balance. It has a very relaxing pace and schedule, with some very nice touches like tea in the afternoon, appetizers/happy hour, a mild but fun band every night, and of course, the beach with drink service, etc.. This wound up being the vacation from our vacation that we needed before returning home, we had been in Portland prior to staying here. We went into Ochi Rios one night via a route taxi (we just walked up to the main road, easy peasy), but were surprisingly context to just enjoy the beach and sea. Staff were all friendly and welcoming, and the owner was on hand and introduced himself. We hope to come back!More
I was in Jamaica for work and wanted to end the trip on a relaxing, romantic note. Jamaica Inn was perfect for such an ending. We stayed for 3 nights and read on the private beach, played croquet, backgammon, paddle boarded and snorkeled right off the beach. Our couples Moonlight massage was fabulous as it is overlooking the water with the waves crashing beneath you. So relaxing. We really enjoyed meeting all of the friendly employees and owners. The highlight for us was the evening entertainment at dinner nightly. Will be back many times to come....More
