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.

Really doesn't get much better than this

We're just back from our second visit to Jamaica Inn, and are already planning our next one. I completely agree with all the praise in the other reviews so won't repeat it, and I have to say I couldn't find anything to criticize at all. The rooms are bright and breezy, the sound of the ocean soothing and constant. We found the food to be excellent and varied. Service is so friendly that you really do feel that you are among friends, not just staff. The beach is spotlessly clean and only a step or two away, no matter where you are in the resort. Swimming is safe and pleasurable, with no worries about motorized water craft zooming around. Lots of shade for those, like myself, who don't like sitting in the sun, but lots of sun to go around for those who do. If you have a request or, most unlikely, a problem, the owner, Peter, and Manager, Kyle are always there to help you. And Shadow, the black Lab, is always available for a game of tug or fetch. Although she usually prefers that you do the fetching.More

Perfect, Again.

Once again, we had a perfect vacation at the Jamaica Inn. The staff are wonderful as is the beach and spa and food. Very simple, not glitzy but fun to be at place where you regularly see the owner and the manager. This place is not for everyone but we love the lack of TV, radio, phone. It is all about relaxing around its wonderful private, small beach.More

Relaxation at its best!

Upon first pulling up to the inn I saw plenty of flowers, but not much else. However, the second I parked and to check in I was greeted with an astounding view of the Caribbean. The Inn is very picturesque with its bright gardens, beautiful beach, and soothing color scheme. Each meal was taken on an outside deck overlooking the water. There was complimentary Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee each morning, high tea in the afternoon, a cocktail hour, and then dinner under the stars. The rooms are each equipped with a balcony and windows and doors designed to let in the ocean breeze and sound of the waves. The staff was very friendly and I talked to the owner on multiple occasions. The food was excellent and there were several recreational things to do on site. It was also a very short drive to Dunn's River Falls and other Ocho Rios attractions. Overall it is relaxation at its finest and two nights was not enough time!!More

1950's values and luxurious attention to detail plus 21 century flare!

Just returned from the Inn, an idyllic 10 days in paradise. This boutique luxury hotel offers complete relaxation and privacy plus it is an ideal place to make friends with like minded people, if you so desire. From the minute we met by Peter , one of the owners on our arrival we knew Jamaica Inn was going to be a special place. Where do we start? Food was absolutely amazing, the King shrimp caesar salad omg! every meal was delightful. You can even have private dinners or breakfast on your terrace. Staff are all so nice, Rupert for his croquet skills..we did beat him once I think!! Teddy the bar guru, Richard the Captain was a delight, Patrice was a Brand Ambassador..simply lovely. To be honest everyone deserves a mention...Henry the gardener for his knowledge and pride, i could go on and on! The rooms all have sea views, we were in 43 a Premium Verandah room. The verandah is huge and set out as a lounge with an amazing view onto the beach, coconut trees and the turquoise ocean. If you like sailing then you will love the hobycats and sunsails, we sailed everyday, plus kayaked, paddle boarded etc etc..I don"t sit down very much! The Ocean Spa offer a complementary treatment which we enjoyed and my wife also had a full aromatherapy session listening to the waves, very chilled. Just a mention re Doctor Clarke who is on hand should you need help as I did, I had a reaction to a suncream and my face blew up..20 minutes later the doctor was there and I was on the mend. Great service. All in all one of our favourite holidays ever..Thank you Jamaica InnMore

Like living in a postcard

This is just an exquisite, laid-back place to spend a holiday. The staff is excellent and they go the extra mile. I've never slept so well in my life. It's on the smaller side but that was part of what made it so pleasant – you don't feel like you're in a mega-resort, you feel like you're at a classy estate where people know you by name. The beach and the breakfasts on the terrace are just phenomenal. The food is a little on the pricey side, but the rooms are cheaper than most hotels of this calibre so I feel like it evens out. This is the perfect place to let your stress melt away and live the island lifestyle for a while.More
