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.

I've stayed at the Jamaica Inn with my dad twice now and both times were amazing. No other vacations I've taken have been as wonderful as my time spent at the Jamaica Inn. The service was exceptional...when you arrive at the Inn, you are truly made to feel at home and part of a family. One thing I found particularly memorable was hearing that most of the staff has been there for years and years. Once a staff member is hired, they stay, which is a very reassuring thought. The Jamaica Inn allows for you to have any kind of vacation you want. If you want to never leave the Inn during your stay, that is fine, but if you are looking for more of an adventure, you can have that too. The staff gave my dad and I great recommendations for things to do in Ocho Rios. The food was to die for and definitely one of my most favorite parts about my time spent there. You can fill out what you want for breakfast the night before and when you wake up, the table will be set outside on your private porch and you can enjoy your breakfast in privacy. No matter what kind of vacation you are looking for, the Jamaica Inn is perfect.More

Amazing place to chill in Ocho Rios

Where to start about this amazing resort. I have stayed in resorts all over, and this one is at the top of the list. The property has 41 rooms, which adds to the personal atmosphere. The staff was exceptional! Our room was always clean. The waiters on the beach knew us by name and went out of their way to make sure we were always comfortable. A special thank you to Rupert, who greeted me each morning with a fruit punch. Walker, who took time everyday to give us sailing lessons. Winston (Buckey), who made sure we had our spot set up for the day and Albert, who was so kind and helpful. The night waiters were just as accommodating and catered to all of our special requests. We were lucky enough to spend two weeks there, paddle boarding, sailing, soaking up the sun and chilling out. The Jamaica Inn is located close to downtown Ocho Rios and many other attractions. We visited the blue hole and Thatch Hill, Hidden Beauty, which was amazing and only 25 minutes from the resort. I will definitely be going back Jamaica Inn!!More

Jenny E,


What a beautiful place. Well preserved, clean, and beautifully maintained. The service is by far the best service i've ever had at any hotel anywhere, and the staff really make you feel at home. Some of them have been working there for over 50 years!!!!! And they love their job. I will highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Jamaica. We stayed in Jamaica in several places, when visiting different parts of the island and this hotel was my favorite times 100!!! It made me want to stay there a longer time. The owner will meet you and greet you almost everyday and the staff, i just fell in love with. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms as well. There's a breeze that in the middle of summer made the stay very pleasant. The rooms have high ceilings that allow for this breeze to get to your room without the need to turn on the ac. There is AC, but you will prefer to have your room opened with the nice breeze. I loved it. It had the true feel of a Banana Republic, very elegant and 1950s glamour!!! Extremely relaxing and just a wonderful time. Best service ever!!! Loved it, highly recommend it!!!! You will not want to stay anywhere else in Jamaica after you have stayed at Jamaica inn. Not to mention that their private stretch of beach is one of the biggest and best well kept in the area. We took a kayak to explore the shore and glance at the other more expensive hotels and their beaches were not nearly as nice or big. We were very happy with our choice and will stay at this hotel again in our next visit. More
