Jamaica Inn  

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 best thing about the hotel were the staff. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful....The hotel itself was just ok...not our cup of tea...the hotel had one restaurant and we were told that dinner is only served at 19:30 and i had to wear a shirt and slacks... If you had more than 1 restaurant, I can understand having a dress code for one of them...when you only have 1, I don't like being told what time to eat and what to wear.... Would I stay here again - NO. For the cost, I would expected to at least have a TV in the room! More


Excellent vacation

My husband and I returned to Jamacia Inn for a 4 day break from Europe. As we needed total relaxation, we booked the White Suite. Well... Having previously only stayed in cottage 4 we were not disappointed! Clean room, great food and excellent staff. Additionally, my husband and I booked a massage during the stay and this, as always, was up to its usual high standards... If you need a luxurious break with great staff and service, book Jamaica inn!More

What an awesome place. My first time ever to Jamaica. The Jamaica Inn, is an experience that will last me a lifetime. I went swimming everyday, for 6 straight days. I haven't done that since i was a kid. My room, room number 5. Gave me a view. That is imprinted into my brain. I find myself daydreaming about the Jamaica Inn. Great food, served and cooked by great people. Beach staff was just incredible. They made sure my favorite spot on the beach was set everyday. House keeping kept my room clean. Towels were a plenty. Never had to ask for anything. The front desk helped plan trips when needed. Every aspect of the Jamaica Inn is awesome. Thanks Jamaica Inn for taking care of me!!!! Oh yeah, my facial at the spa was wonderful.More

Roy F,

Peaceful paradise

We were welcomed home when we arrived and I would have moved in if I could. The setting is beautiful and the staff take great care to refresh everything each day. This is not a roudy, loud, party-central kind of place but is rather a refined, quiet place to relax and enjoy yourself. There was definitely a "British" feel with tea every day at 4pm and a bit of formality around dinner. On the other hand, we were able to have Red Stripes and dinner brought to the bar so that we could watch the Penguins win the Stanley Cup ("No problem, Mon!") There are no TV's in the rooms, but each room has a lovely furnished porch to watch the sea, and there are some pretty interesting attractions nearby such as the Blue Hole and Bob Marley's house. On the lawn, there is a small pool and croquet set-up with someone to explain the rules if you don't already know how to play. We will definitely go back again.More

Lisa S,

"One of a Kind Paradise"

Words cannot describe the peace, tranquility and ambiance that this small boutique style resort provides. Feels like a home away from home as the warm welcoming staff and management welcome you and indulge your highest expectations of a Caribbean vacation. The property is so beautiful and meticulously maintained and delivers an experience not dissimilar to the heady days of the 1950's as advertised. The beach is by far the best beach in the Caribbean as voted in several surveys. All rooms have beautiful spacious verandahs facing the turquoise Caribbean. The service is gracious, understated and surpasses any reasonable expectation of excellence. The food is better than any other hotel we have stayed at in the Caribbean and we have been to many. Definitely try some of their Jamaican specialties which are added to their extensive menu featuring varied and tasty international dishes. All in all we have decided to make this a repeat yearly indulgence that we will look forward to with relish.More
