Welcoming guests to its private beach in Ocho Rios since 1950, Jamaica Inn seeks to provide a home-away-from-home experience, and its guests believe it succeeds in doing so. Its air-conditioned suites and cottages — with cerulean walls and blue-and-white furnishings evocative of the beach, sea and sky — all offer complimentary Wi-Fi, minifridges and private balconies or verandahs. Meander across the resort's manicured grounds for a meal and a Red Stripe beer at the open-air restaurant or a massage and an iced lemongrass tea at the Ocean Spa. If the beach is more your scene, you'll find complimentary snorkeling, kayaking and sailing there, along with daily complimentary cocktails from 7 to 8 p.m. more

Sandals Royal Plantation, part of Sandals' Jamaican fleet of adult-only all-inclusives, emphasizes luxury over size. Each of its 74 ocean-view suites on the Ocho Rios Riviera comes with personalized butler service to cater to your every need, as well as marbled bathrooms, king-sized beds draped in Italian linens and private balconies or patios. The luxurious digs and amenities at Royal Plantation make for a special Sandals resort, but guests say it's the friendly service from the resort staff that keeps them coming back again and again. Spend your days golfing, scuba diving or playing tennis; then, retreat to the Red Lane Spa, a Sandals staple (services not included in the rates). After a full day, dine in the lap of luxury at one of Royal Plantation's five restaurants and numerous bars — for an extra swanky treat, head to C Bar, the only Champagne and caviar bar in Jamaica. more

Set amid a 500-acre wilderness preserve, the all-inclusive Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa provides guests with Sandals' signature activities plus the natural beauty of Jamaica's southern coast.

You may dine on traditional Jamaican dishes at Bluefields Beach Club, an Italian meal at guest-favorite Giuseppe's or at six other restaurants — all included in your room cost. But make sure you wait an hour after eating before jumping into one of four pools or hitting the sprawling beach (which guests say never feels crowded, even when the resort is at capacity). Whether you're relaxing by the pool or along the sandy shore, your stay will be free of little ones — all Sandals resorts have an adults-only policy, so leave the kids at home. more

Sandals Royal Caribbean gives guests a taste of the Far East about 5 miles east of Montego Bay. Hop aboard the Wayang Doll — a dragon-shaped boat — and visit Sandals' private island, where you can dine on curry at The Royal Thai, get a bamboo polish at the Red Lane Spa, or dance the night away in the flickering light of tiki torches. Back on the mainland, you can spend your time in one of seven pools, on the beach or off-roading through the jungle in a 4x4 vehicle. If you somehow find that there isn't enough to do at Sandals Royal Caribbean, you can purchase the "Stay at 1 – Play at 3" package for access to amenities at both Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Carlyle. And every night, you can rest your head in an air-conditioned guest room or suite back at Sandals Royal Caribbean, snug in a four-poster bed amid mahogany furnishings. However, compared to the rooms at other Sandals resorts, some guests say their accommodations were a bit on the small side. more
