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.

The staff does everything to accommodate you. The hotel does not have a grand entrance and it is not on the main "Ohi" strip, however, your room, the staff, the entertainment, will leave you with awesome memories. I will be back! If you are looking for solitude, this is the place. If you are looking for loud Bach music and high intensity entertainment this is not the place. If you are looking for dinner on the beach or group dinners under the stars, with excellent none eardrum bursting entertainment, this is the place. Oh, the free rum punch during the day from the beach bar, all I have to say, know how to hold you liquor! Thank you Jamaica Inn, I will be back.More
Every moment at Jamaica Inn is breathtaking and unforgettable. Every holiday every long week end every day off I get I try to come to this place. I have been coming here for many many years and theres never a time that I have been that I don't have an amazing time, whether alone or with friendsâ¦ This is a must do on a Jamaica trip.More
Nothing short of amazing
What to say about the Jamaica Inn that hasn't already been said..? When we arrived on the property, the stunning views took our breath away. No matter where you are on the hotel grounds, you are sure to have a beautiful view of the lush gardens and an historic luxury feel. We were so glad to have been offered a room upgrade to the verandah suite, which was simply perfect. Spacious rooms without TVs. The private dinner on the beach felt like a dream, as well as the couples sunset massage facing the ocean. Food is excellent with 5 star service & real silver every day and night. Not a huge food selection, but that's what tends to happen when you have consistently fresh items on the menu. They also have a lovely complimentary "tea & crumpets" (with coffee too, of course) time every day at 4 pm for those who are starving before 7:30 pm dinner comes around (we often were)! We didn't find the all-inclusive to be worth it, as it was far too expensive unless you're a very heavy eater and drinker, which we aren't. We figured we saved about $700 in a week by not doing all-inclusive. The beach is stunning as the water is clear blue, white powdery sand, and completely private and secluded. There is a tiki hut and chairs for everyone. The hotel was sold out while we were there and it still felt empty. And on to one of the best parts about Jamaica Inn... Shadow! Shadow is a beautiful black lab that hangs out with all of the resort guests. She had breakfast with us several times as well as took a swim in the ocean and laid on our beach chairs. She is so friendly and sweet and made our stay that much more memorable. My only small complaint is that housekeeping was sometimes not available and their transportation options are really too expensive. We were able to get extremely reliable private transportation for about half the price. Honestly, for what you get in terms of service and quality, Jamaica Inn can't be beat for the price. More

Another trip to Paradise
My husband and I have made five trips to the Jamaica Inn since we honeymooned there in 2006. Each time we have the opportunity to return, I am so grateful. When we make the drive through the gardens up to the reception area, by the time we get out of the car, I am teary eyed. There is no place like this. If you want to spend your vacation in shorts and t-shirts, this is not the place for you. If your goal for a vacation is spending time with children or grandchildren, this is not the place for you. The cocktail hour, out on the veranda, requires gentlemen to wear collared shirts and trousers. The ladies dress up accordingly. Dinner under the stars is marvelous, with first rate cuisine. And then there's the meticulously manicured beautiful white sand beach, cared for daily by no less than 5 attendants. The staff is just plain fantastic, including the legendary Teddy at the beach bar, accompanied by Georgia, Rupert and Kemar. Derrick, the maitre d for the cocktail area, and Patrice took excellent care of us nightly. We can't wait to make that drive again!More

The Jamaica Inn is a sprawling hotel/estate in Ochu Rios, on the north of Jamaica, with a beautiful private beach, which gives a stunning impression when you arrive. The staff greet you professionally, and the estate has a high level of security. The hotel grounds are very large, and the rooms are spread out over the grounds, with an amazing day spa hidden away at the back, which gives beautiful views of the ocean during your treatment. The rooms themselves are quaint, slightly old fashioned, but generally comfortable. The view of the private beach from the rooms is quite spectacular. Breakfast can be served either at the room or at the restaurant â I highly recommend having it at the room, as itâs the same menu regardless, and the view and relaxing atmosphere of the room was much preferable to me. The beach is amazing, and has plenty of suntan beds for use. There is a beach bar which serves good cocktails and food, albeit at âisland timeâ speedâ¦ Apart from the beach, there isnât much to do in sleepy Ochu Rios, so best to just relax and swim and suntan. Itâs a reasonable distance in a taxi to the main part of the town, with a few bars and restaurants there (although nothing particularly busy) and some tourist shops to target the cruise ships when they port. There is a single restaurant at the hotel, and âfull boardâ can be taken as an option with the room rates, which includes meals. However, the restaurantâs menu is surprisingly limited. The restaurant area also tries to have a bit of upmarket elegance, so a smart-casual dress code is required (including full length pants and shoes for men, and dresses for women). In summary, the beach is simply beautiful. However, the rooms are on the expensive side, and aside from the beach and day spa, it was slightly underwhelming, particularly the restaurant.More
