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.

Nothing like it....
We have stayed at Jamaica Inn over a dozen times and it never disappoints. It's elegant without being stuffy. Laid back without being tired. And oh so relaxing. If you need lots of activity, noise and bells and whistles, then this isn't the place. If you want a gorgeous beach, exceptional, friendly service and ocean view rooms just steps from the sand, then Jamaica Inn will be somewhere you return again and again. We have stayed at a lot beautiful hotels/resorts in the Carribean but none have the soul or feel of Jamaica Inn. It sounds a little corny but it truly is like comng "home" whenever we're there. Breakfast and lunch are excellent. Dinner can be hit or miss but there are a lot of great options in and around Ocho Rios if you feel like venturing off the property. They recently updated the gym and now have a solid place to get in a workout. Unplug, relax and soak in the timeless atmosphere at Jamaica Inn. There's no place quite like it.More

" Welcome Home!" This is how we were greeted warmly when we checked in; and we felt right at home. Jamaica Inn is my most favourite place to stay in Jamaica. An early morning swim, followed by a delicious breakfast on your own private balcony, that's how every morning begins. If you need a place to relax, this is it. Simplicity done to perfection. A perfect massage, a perfect beach, a snooze in the hammock underneath the almond tree, fresh coconut water, brought to you with a gentle smile. Tea at 4:30, a picturesque sunset ; a little piece of heaven on earth. It doesn't get any better than this !!! Looking forward to coming home again soon!More
Fabulous! Exceeded all our expectations.
It's not every day you come across a hotel as extraordinary as the Jamaica Inn. We selected the Jamaica Inn based on its very positive Trip Advisor reviews and we arrived with equally high expectations. By the time we left, the Jamaica Inn had exceeded every one of them. By any measure the hotel is fabulous. The rooms, the views, the grounds, and the beach are all breathtaking; the high tea, evening cocktail hour, and beachside food service were delicious and fun; the rafts, kayaks, and snorkel gear were also fun and much appreciated; and the warmth and professionalism of the staff were without parallel. But my husband and I both agree it was really the little things that made the biggest impression. For one, staff members greeted us us by name every day and often remembered what we had done, or where we had explored, the day before so that every conversation was both personal and meaningful. For another, the staff anticipated our needs to such a degree it was as if they provided us with what we might ask for before we even knew we needed it. One example: whenever we headed toward the beach, our two favorite lounge chairs were set up for us without us having to say a word. There's so much more I could say about the Jamaica Inn. It's not just a hotel, it's an experience, and as an experience, it's one we'll always remember.More
Thoroughly enjoyed every second at Jamaica Inn. The moment you arrive you are handed a wet towel and complimentary delicious planters punch, which hits the spot so well! One of the owners, Eric and the chef Maurice came to say hello and make sure all of our dietary needs were taken care of. You get that warm, family feel right away. This is not a stuffy, huge, crowded resort. It is spacious enough to have adequate privacy while being close enough to everything. It's very calm, quiet and peaceful throughout the whole resort. If you are looking to rejuvenate, THIS IS THE PLACE! The beach area is just stunning, well stocked with lawn chairs, hammocks, shade, palm trees, and water activities if you choose. The water is the perfect temperature and is all of my favorite shades of blue. You can see beautiful fish swimming all around you. We ate lunch on the beach a few times which was so convenient and relaxing to not have to leave the comfort of our beach chairs. We stayed in Cottage 7 which was beyond amazing!!! Completely private, so spacious and beautiful. It's like you're in your own slice of paradise within the secluded paradise of the resort. Cottage 7 was stocked with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There's two outdoor showers (one by the plunge pool and one on the balcony outside of the bathroom), and an indoor shower and bathtub in the spacious bathroom. The bedroom is beautiful with a very comfortable bed and a view to die for of the ocean. There are doors that open up so you can sleep to the sound of crashing waves and warm ocean breezes. The downstairs is a large open room with plenty of seating, a bathroom and bar area and has large sliding doors that open up to multiple outdoor seating areas and a beautiful plunge pool overlooking the turquoise sea. There are steps that lead to the ocean. There's no reason to even leave the room! It's so relaxing and beautiful with all the lush greenery surrounding you. The first day I just sat there for hours taking it all in. All of our meals were so fresh and tasty. They accommodated our gluten free/vegan diet very well. Maurice made some amazing gf coconut pancakes for us! The traditional Jamaican vegetarian ackee breakfast was so yummy! The wait staff there were wonderful! All so friendly and efficient. There's a person for everything, one who takes your drink order, food order and one that brings rolls and fills your water. I found this system to be wonderful and you're never waiting for anything. They work so hard in the Jamaican heat and never stop smiling. What a great staff from the front desk to the grounds keepers, to the beach and bar workers to the waitstaff, everyone is wonderful. I truly enjoyed the Jamaican people. The grounds are immaculate with such a variety of trees, bushes and flowers. You can tell they really take pride in it all. It's so beautiful every time I walked through the property I found myself taking a photo! We went on an amazing adventure provided by the resort to watch baby turtles hatch and we actually got to wash them off in the ocean and release them! What an experience! This resort is heaven, truly surreal and perfect in every way. Perfect destination for couples, we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and couldn't of picked a better place. We will be back for sure. You will love it here!!More
A Gem Of An Experience
Undoubtedly one of Jamaica's best hotels, with their excellent service and perfect beach contributing to this status. Tip - request one of the rooms in the 41-48 range, so you step from your porch directly unto the beach.More
