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.

Another super stay at this beautiful intimate hotel, the staff are fantastic the location is beautiful. I tired the spa which was really nice and his time we took a boat trip out to laughing waters from the hotel which was fun. We really look forward to another visit soon,More

A 'must do' destination.

The Inn is an exceptional place for a real 'switch-off' holiday. From the wonderful staff to the comfort of one's suite, to the outstanding beach, this is indeed a rare and exceptional location. Full of character, with all the facilities given a colonial twist with a link to the past but carefully updated to meet current day expectations. We have been visiting for a number of years now and never fail to treasure the peace, quality and ambience. Feeling immediately 'at home' and appreciating the familiarity of the accommodation - in our case The Blue Cottage - right on the beach so we get the benefit of it without needing to go past the verandah. Have no hesitation in visiting as you will crave to go back as soon as you have left. Bathe under the Caribbean sun, warm your skin and rejuvenate your spirit.More

Beautiful and perfect service

This is a beautiful property with a lovely beach. On arrival we were 'welcomed home' and indeed we felt right at home immediately. The staff were so friendly and attentive - the service was the best we have found, anywhere. Even in July when the skies weren't blue, the beach was great for relaxing. Definitely recommended.More

The way vacation travel used to be...elegant.

Just returned from our honeymoon in Ocho Rios. We went to the Jamaica Inn based on its Trip Advisor reviews so I won't bother reiterating all of the praise of the resort...Its all accurate. I will provide a travelers highlight guide that will help you once you book. Don't come if you are a loud partier...this is not the place for you. Do come if you are looking to relax and spend time with 50 friends you haven't met yet. The resort is so intimate you will get to know the staff, owners and other guests on a first name basis. Don't come if you are addicted to TV. There is none. And the WIFI will not support video streaming. Do come if you are looking to unplug and actually relax and do nothing...there is nothing to do but relax. Don't come if you are a suspicious traveler or you are convinced hotel staff is there to steal from you. We stopped locking our hotel room after the 1st day. We often left our belongings on the beach for the entire day (phones and money and all) under the watchful eye of Christopher, Dwight and Rupert with no concern even being away from our chairs for half of the day. Don't come if you like to treat hotel employees like your personal assistant (badly). By the end of your stay the staff will be friends that you are sad to leave behind. We much time talking to the staff and getting to know them personally and each has an interesting life story and they all have colorful stories of the resort (most have more than 10 years tenure...Teddy at the beach bar 57 years!) Don't come if you are looking for modern luxury and new everything. The resort is old. The furniture is old, the art is old (heck the staff is old) but its old in a respect the past way, in a golden age of travel way, in a Marilynn Monroe honeymooned here and we want her to feel like she never left way. So the resort is more antique than its old, and once you see it, you'll want it to never change. DO SPLURGE! If its a stretch to upgrade STRETCH. We stayed in the White Suite (basically a private island on the resort). Or try Cottage 4, and amazing cliff top condo....or go for the Premier Veranda Suite and feed the fish from your patio...they are incredible experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. Bottom line, this place is rare in that its a time warp back to a place and time where hotel employees knew the guests by name and visa versa. A mutual respect that creates vacation magic. And a venue lovingly maintained to show reverence for the past and to be preserved for the future on the most impossibly beautiful spot of sand you can imagine. So stop researching Trip Advisor endlessly and come visit your new friends at the Jamaica Inn.More

Matt B,

Peaceful and private

The private cove was great, with snorkeling enjoyable along the reef/rocks along the side of the property, If you get a 1st floor verandah suite plan for room (verandah) service for a great way to start the day. It took a day to unwind and enjoy the lack of a TV and clock in the room.More
