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.

Wonderful Jamaica Inn

Perfect weather, beautiful accommodations and great staff. We stayed in the deluxe veranda room and it was lovely. There was always a breeze and the furnishings were so comfortable and pretty. The king size bedroom was also lovely. Our room overlooked the lawn and the croquet court and just beyond was the beach. Each day was truly like being in paradise. The menu changes daily which was a big plus for us vegetarians. There was always a pasta dish and a vegetarian special. The staff was very solicitous and friendly. All our excursions were handled efficiently. The only thing to bear in mind is that drinks are very expensive. This property is perfect for honeymooners and couples of all ages.More

I can't begin to say enough about our stay at the Jamaica Inn. While the property is beautiful and the location is idyllic, it was really the people that will make us remember it best. Every person from the time we were met at the airport to the time we left was just wonderful to meet. We loved the island and we loved the Jamaica Inn. It really is a slice of paradise.More

Where do I start?!?!

Firstly the pictures may look like the front of a travel agents brochure but that is an exact replica of the real thing! After 11 nights in Negril we opted to stay here as we wanted a different level of relaxation and luxury before heading home and this place did not disappoint! The service really is second none and the hotel strap line is welcome home - which is really what it feels like 'without the stress'! I will most certainly be coming back.More

Almost Heaven

Without doubt, Jamaica Inn is an absolute gem. It's just a little to the east of Ocho Rios itself and set on a lovely private cove with white sand beach and crystal clear water. It's beautifully kept and that's of course because this is a family owned and run hotel where the current third generation owner's strive to maintain the high standards needed to make this one of Jamaica's top hotels. There is no aspect of Jamaica Inn's food and service which I would fault - all great. The problem really is that once you been there for a few hours and started to relax and absorb the sun and the atmosphere, the desire to stay there for ever and ever creeps into you - almost heaven, as I say. And it's near enough to Ocho Rios to venture out very easily if you want to go shopping or see the James Bond 'Dr No' film sites, or go to Dunn's River Falls, which we thought was a treat in itself. We did both of these - enjoyed them, enjoyed the local people who we came into contact with and had a hassle free entertaining time. A great holiday in a marvelous hotel - - read all the other reviews; this is the place to go to enjoy Jamaica.More

Close to perfect

The Jamaica Inn certainly lived up to our expectations. The location is one of the most beautiful we have seen, a fantastic beach and landscaped grounds. The weather was kind to us for the 6 days we were there which meant we were able to dine under the stars every night. We opted for the special candlelit dinner on the beach one night and it was certainly worth the additional cost - we were made to feel truly special! The food is very good with a changing menu as the week went on so we didn't feel our choices were at all constrained. We opted for the all inclusive package. Hard to say whether it was the best option for us. If you eat and drink modestly (as we do) it is probably better to pay as you go. As for local attractions, I'd give Prospect Plantation a miss - it is very touristy and there are better things to do. The Dunns River Falls on the other hand are really fantastic and a definite "must see". Make sure you take the boat trip to the falls offered by the Jamaica Inn and go early and when there isn't a cruise ship in town. We did and our group of 6 were pretty much on our own as we walked/climbed the falls in the early morning: sensational! We had a first floor ocean view balcony room and were very happy with our choice. Amazing views and a bit more privacy than some of the ground floor rooms which open onto the beachfront. The Jamaica Inn has old world charm and a friendly team running things. I would definitely go back!More
