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 Shehata Family

We stayed in Jamaica Inn as a family of 6 celebrating my wife's birthday. This place is heaven on earth. The accommodation is classy and the views are breath-taking. The beach is probably one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. The food is outrageously good and chef Maurice could be a Michelin star chef. The use of local organic sources makes everything tastes amazing. Alvin and his team lead the dining and wining in style and sophistication that is unassuming, effective and extremely welcoming. A special mention to Travel and the trainee waiters Francois and Samuel who served us really well with a lovely smile and high quality. What makes this place so good is the staff who are all amazing and very helpful. A special thanks to Marie and Sherlene for their customer care and the nice upgrade for an extra cottage - much appreciated. Last but not least a great thank you to Eric and Kyle for their welcoming attitude and exceptional hosting. Not to forget mentioning cute Shadow. We will be back very soon.More

Hassan S,


14 blissful nights! Jamaica Inn ticked all our boxes: a hotel full of character ( it's like being a guest in an old plantation house), a wonderful Location, and great food. However, what made this holiday memorable was the wonderful staff who took such good care of us during our stay. I would like to mention them all by name, but space is short! Therefore, thank you Patrick for my birthday cocktail. And, thank you Samuel, and Travel (trainees) for keeping us topped up with coffee, bread & water - we hope you will soon earn your stripes.More

Christmas Gift to Sit on a Sandy Beach

My wife wanted to sit on a sandy beach with little to do for her Christmas. Jamaica Inn was perfect. We had a Veranda suite room. The best part of vacation was having room service breakfast each morning on veranda looking at the spectacular garden grounds, white sand beach and blue sea. Next was setting on beach doing very little. Place is quiet with few kids (mostly with grandparents.) The 700' beach is finest in Ocho Rio. We will be back!More

A charming, old-style, quiet hotel with outstanding service and attention to detail. Two weeks in Feb/March which were the perfect away-from-it-all retreat. Beautiful gardens and beach, and excellent food. It is expensive but worth every penny.More

We fell in love...

We were utterly seduced by the charms of this hotel. Our arrival set the tone - our flight was badly delayed and we ended up arriving very late at night. Not only had we been given a room upgrade (very much appreciated), the hotel had also thoughtfully put a tray of sandwiches and coffee in the room for us. The stresses of a very long journey were almost instantly wiped away. The beach is wonderful. We like to swim, but not to lie in the sun and we were well provided for as there were plenty of shady spots for a lounger close to the water. We also really enjoyed early morning swims - the open veranda from our room provided direct access to the beach so it was easy to pop out for a quick 6am dip. The dawn skies are almost as lovely as the sunset ones. The sea has enough waves to provide a little interest but feels safe. Flags are used to indicate water conditions and lifeguards are on duty. The beach bar is handily placed and the complimentary late morning Planters Punch is an extra treat. Staff are also on hand to take food orders. We enjoyed our breakfasts - my husband had the Jamaican breakfast every day and the food was really tasty even when it looked a bit odd! I stayed more traditional and can recommend the corned beef hash. There was plenty of choice and all we tried was good. The service was efficient and friendly. The sea view at breakfast is also very pretty - such a nice way to start the day. We had several lunches and dinners throughout our stay and all were good quality, but as we had a hire car we wanted to get out most days to explore other eating options as well for a full Ocho Rios experience. The room was a delight - very comfortable and all sorts of extra touches to provide a relaxing experience. Having a separate dressing room area for clothes and suitcases was good as clutter in the bedroom could be minimised I've tried very hard to think of negatives. The only thing I came up with was a lack of coasters in the room and many french polished surfaces, but that may just be me! We would be delighted to return.More
