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.

A Honeymoon to remember
I chose the Jamaica Inn to take my new bride for our honeymoon. Having researched a lot of hotels in Jamaica the Jamaica Inn ticked all the right boxes. No young children (we are both over 50), no big crowds, noisy beach parties or crowded bars, loud music or people wanting to know everything about you including your inside leg measurement. The Jamaica Inn services a type of client that likes to be at peace and left to do their thing. There are only around 46 rooms and a full hotel is still less than 100 people. The staff make the hotel special. friendly, attentive to your every need and they make you feel a part of their family. The hotel clearly states in the arrival pack that you do not need to tip the staff because service charge is included in your hotel rate. However, if you wish to tip them, the hotel recommend you do it discreetly at the end of your stay. We follow this and for us it was the right way. The beach is excellent, private a no hassles from anyone. A very responsive and friendly beach bar staff willing to fetch your beers, cocktails and food without complaint or issue. The rooms are amazing. Some may consider them expensive but my wife and I found them to be colonial and spot on for the style of hotel. since Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, Ian Flemming and many other big names stayed their it was great to become a part of the hotels history. One of the owners was present at the hotel every day and would happily chat with you as though you were an extended family member. Neve did we feel that we were just guests or outsiders on a temporary stay. The Hotel Manager was also present and like the owner, made us feel special. I rarely say I would go back somewhere to stay because the world is so big and there is so much more around every corner. The Jamaica Inn is one of those rare places I would go back to; one day.More

Just keeps getting better & better!
Just returned from a trip to this wonderful resort and am pleased to say that it's better than ever. (Thanks Kyle!). Food was outstanding, service and accommodations were the best they've ever been. My only complaint, is that I gained too much weight... and that's with working out EVERY day. (Okay... so that's my fault, not the Inn's.) Perhaps my best/happiest discovery is this: If the weather is cold and rainy, do you know what happens??? You end up having as wonderful a time as when the weather is perfect! Seriously, don't worry about it, you'll still have a blast with great fun, food and drink. I actually enjoyed sitting on the beach during a cool day (highs in the upper 60s) as much as other days, and with the water so warm... go ahead and swim in the rain - you're wet anyway. Also... if the winds are light or calm, DON'T PUT IT OFF - hire Marvin to take you out to the reef for snorkeling - the water will be so clear that you can get unusually amazing pictures with just a cheap underwater camera. Any other day the snorkeling will be awesome, but the silt will cloud the pictures. For photo enthusiasts like me - those calm days are IT! Oh... don't forget to feed the fish at breakfast (ask staff). It's a blast and many visitors never see it. I can't wait to go back.More

Lovely Stay- Old World Charm
We stayed at the Inn for one week in mid-February. There is much to like , especially if you enjoy the "old world" charm famous in the 50's and 60's. Some things could be updated including having a coffee/tea service in the room. The proximity to the main road can prove problematic if you are a light sleeper. Expect to wait during breakfast and lunch. Dinner is flawlessly executed. The private beach, well equipped gym, and terrific staff made our stay enjoyable. We also appreciated getting to know Shadow. Thank youMore

The most relaxing and delightful hotel I have seen, with the most personable and kind staff. The level of repeat business speaks for itself. Particularly enjoyed how much personal space for each room is outside, on the verandah. It was our first time to go there but will not be the last.More
Jamaica Inn - lovely!
What a perfect location, and a really relaxing experience, slightly marred by the weather (tail end of January and into February). After a 9 hour flight, a frustrating 2 hours at Montego Bay airport, and and 1.5 hour journey to the hotel we were courteously received by the owner and staff. The food was excellent/very good; the staff were friendly, helpful and caring. Our room (balcony suite) was carefully looked after by dear Winnie who went out of her way to ensure that everything was "tickety-boo". If you are a pool swimmer - forget it! The pool is small and not much more than an ornamental pond! The beach is lovely; however, it does shelve deeply and when we were there the sea was fairly rough so swimming was not easy. The Sunday Brunch was excellent and it was such a shame that so few people took advantage of it. The weekly BBQ's preceded by the Manager's Cocktail Party were also very good, and the latter gave people the opportunity to meet other guests in a relaxed atmosphere. We went for a stress-free holiday so did not hire a car. On perusing the list of excursions laid on by the hotel they appeared to be somewhat pricey. Would we come again - probably not. But we would certainly recommend the "Inn" to friends who were thinking of a mid-winter break in the Caribbean.More
