Welcomes are warm at the Jamaica Inn, which has just been named one of the top hotels in the Americas by Conde Nast Traveler. This place has been run by the same family since the Fifties and it’s full of friendly faces, including 2 English cocker spaniels, which belong to the manager. The hotel’s facilities have been designed to help you unwind. When you’re not relaxing by the swimming pool or enjoying a game of croquet, you can make the most of the spa. The treatment list draws on the healing properties of local herbs and plants. Decorated in sea blue and white, the rooms are serene spaces, made even more tranquil by the absence of TVs, radios and clocks. Each room comes with a veranda, with a cosy sofa, wing chair, breakfast table and writing desk. The wine and dine scene revolves around a bar and a restaurant. In the former, bartenders serve up Red Stripe and stories. The restaurant, meanwhile, offers Jamaican and international fusion food in view of the sea.

This is a great 'boutique' hotel with fabulous service and great views from every room. It is sparkling clean. Being addressed as "my lady" by the staff made me somewhat uncomfortable because it sounded so colonial, but I got over it as I became friendly with some and discovered that they earned a living wage and there was nothing exploitative about their working conditions. Every single thing about my stay there was wonderful. I highly recommend this place! They even introduced my husband and me to drivers whom we hired to take us around the island. The spa was also extraordinary. The accommodations are not cheap in February, but in April become a little cheaper. We had a magical trip! We will return.More

We loved our stay here. The beach is beautiful and the rooms are stunning. The restaurant is great as well. For men-- bring long pants for dinner as well as a buttoned shirt. What I loved most about this place is that with all of its luxury and beauty, it succeeded to stay humble and intimate. Ive been to several spots in Jamaica over the years, and this one is by far the best one. True relaxation spot! The service is outstanding here. More

Great Hotel and more besides
My friend and I were unsure what to expect when we booked to stay at the Jamaica Inn. We are two mums whose children were off doing other things so decided that a very well deserved break was in order. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, our twin room was perfect with a spacious verandah overlooking the beach and complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival (that went down very well!!) We had breakfast most mornings on the verandah and dinner in the evening was sensational, the menu changes everyday so you never eat the same thing twice. Whilst we are not "young" people, we have a few years yet before we reach the age of most of the guests there, and as the bar and the live band usually finished up around 10.30pm and most of the guests were heading off to bed, we were heading off in a taxi to experience the "nightlife" that Ocho Rios had to offer, and we were not disappointed.! We met some of the most friendly and wonderful local people and despite being two women on our own we felt totally safe. The Jamaica Inn is the perfect hotel if you want a peaceful and tranquil retreat with amazing staff and delicious food and is in the perfect location if, like us, you feel the need to get out in the evening and enjoy the amazing sounds of a live reggae band at Ocean's Eleven or dancing the night away (and it goes faster than you can imagine!!) on Ladies night at Margaritaville or Amnesia. The hotel organised the taxi (Paul or his brother Andrew) and all we had to do was call them on their mobile when we were ready to come home, usually they would be parked up outside waiting for us!! Thank you Peter, Kyle and all your wonderful team for making our holiday one to remember and we look forward to turning up on your doorstep in the not too distant future to hear those wonderful words "Welcome Home".More

Jamaican hospitality at its best
After eight years of marriage we returned for the second time to our honeymoon hotel and it did not disappoint. Jamaica Inn still is a cut above the rest in terms of style, elegance and top notch service. We got almost the same room on the west end of the hotel, a room with our verandah perched on the cliff by the beautiful Caribbean Sea. We practically didnt leave our room, but when we did we were greeted by Jamaica Inn's superb staff that met every request with a smile and something more. My husband and I LOVE this hotel. Beautiful beach, comfy, comfy bed and the sofa on the verandah where I curled up to read or practice yoga to the sounds of the waves crashing on the cliffs. Did I mention the food? Oh I could go on and on. Jamaica Inn is the place. Trust me.More

Exquisite February Vacation~!
Having just arrived home to another east coast snow storm my mind wanders back to the Jamaica Inn. We spent 8 days in luxury; not only does Jamaica Inn have wonderfully comfortable rooms with gorgeous views and large verandas, but the peace and serenity surrounds you whether you are at the beach or having a sumptuous breakfast in the morning sunshine overlooking the blue water. The food and dining is "top of the line" with varied menus, local foods and amazing service. You are treated like kings and queens. There is no request that would be considered too much. The private beach was luxurious and staff covered your lounge chair every morning with a clean towel. Lunch at the beach was a fun delicious break along with the variety of drinks offered. I HIGHLY recommend you try Jamaica Inn. It will exceed your expectations~!More
