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.

What a wonderful place!

My fiancé and I visited Jamaica for the first time, and we stayed in the Jamaica Inn, which I actually learned about from TripAdvisor. I can't say enough great things about this exceptional hotel; I have stayed at many fancy Relais & Châteaux hotels and the Jamaica Inn is their equal in service. We opted for a Deluxe Verandah room, which turned out to be a great choice. Our patio was near the croquet lawn and just a few steps from the beach. The only thing I would do differently if I stay there again is to go for the all-inclusive package; we ended up spending a bit more a la carte (and we ate dinner off property on 3 of our 7 nights there). I find some of the criticisms of the food to be a bit surprising; it's certainly not avante garde, but it's quite good; certainly better than any other place in Ocho Rios. More

Another amazing vacation at the Jamaica Inn

I just finished my 4th trip to the Jamaica Inn. This really is a special place. If you want a loud party atmosphere it is not for you. It is timeless casual elegance. It goes without saying that it is beautiful. What makes it so special is that it is intimidate and traditional yet modern. The days relaxing on the beautiful beach are just wonderful. I love the tradition of dressing for dinner. There are no TV's or radios which just makes it more relaxing to enjoy the beauty of the Inn and the sound of the ocean from your veranda. The staff is the best of I have ever seen. They take care of anything you need but do it in a way that is professional yet casual and really become your friends. I am in the minority being a solo traveler but have always been made to feel welcome by the staff and the other guests. Since it is a small Inn if you choose you can get to know the other guests whether it be sitting around Teddy's beach bar or playing croquet on the lawn. The dinner menu changes daily and they will accommodate special requests. Shadow the lab is also a bonus if you are missing your four legged family. The Mobay transfer service at the airport is well worth it. They expedite you through customs and you can enjoy both the arrival and departure lounges. More

Very nice and enjoyable stay

My wife and I stayed in Cottage 6 for 8 days in July/August. We had a very nice time. No mosquito's! It was very quiet (which is what we wanted). The staff is very nice and helpful. The beach is extremely nice and given that the hotel was not busy it was not crowded. Plenty of space. The Cottage is very nice but I do not understand why there are no window shades on the glass window facing the entrance door from the living area nor on the glass window facing the the Cottage next door (I believe it is Cottage 5). Also when sitting outside by the Cottage pool there is a solid wall between Cottage 6/7 but not between Cottage's 6/5. Would have liked to have the privacy. Evening turn down service was not consistent. Special shout out to Kingsley, Dale, Maurice and of course Shadow. All in all a wonderful place and we would definitely return.More


Heaven on earth!

I won't waste your time by repeating the same points that others have. All I'll write is that I have very high expectations for hotels and this exceeded every single aspect. It has totally spoilt me by setting the bar so incredibly high. Go, if you can!More

Heavenly and Luxurious Anniversary Celebration

We recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Jamaica Inn. This trip was to celebrate our 15th anniversary. It was our 2nd visit as we also honeymooned at the resort. From the moment we stepped out of the car and viewed the crystal blue waters and tropical landscaped lawn, we truly knew we had been "welcomed home"! We had high expectations for this vacation as our honeymoon trip made quite the impression on us and the Jamaica Inn did not disappoint! The service we phenomenal, every person went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of and pampered. From the beach bar, to the dining room, to housekeeping, and reception, every employee of the inn was a pleasure to be around. Georgia, Sherlene, Francois, Reupert, and Patrice were just a few of the friendly faces we encountered everyday. If the service wasn't enough, the beautiful grounds and beach top off all expectations of a great vacation. The Inn is located on a private, coved beach so you have no distractions from the large resorts nearby. The water is glistening, clear, and blue and the sand is maintained daily to keep everything looking pristine. The décor of the Inn is simple, understated, and elegant. All of the rooms at the Inn have a view of the Caribbean which is very nice. Our room was located very close to the beach. We actually made a room request and were granted our choice! Of course the food at every meal was wonderful. We booked the all-inclusive meal plan and enjoyed breakfast every morning served on our veranda, lunch at the beach bar, and dinner under the stars with a local band to entertain us. One of the most memorable parts of our trip was getting to see a Sea Turtle Release. For a very minimal cost, we were able to visit a nearby beach where we were educated on the local endangered turtles. Then we watched as they were dug out of their nest. We were able to participate by washing them off, counting them, and then releasing them into the ocean. It was one of the most amazing things I have experienced. The Inn has hatchings all throughout the summer so make sure to inquire about this. Our anniversary was everything we could have ever hoped for. The Inn has hardly changed and we were so glad to see that. We know that when we return for our third trip that we can expect the same, great getaway. Thank you Jamaica Inn for staying true to who you are! We will be back "home" soon!More
