How it Ranks: GoldenEye Resort ranks #2 out of 454 Jamaica Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean.

Our Take: In 1946, a former officer in the British Royal Navy bought some land in northern Jamaica and named it GoldenEye. Hoping to recuperate from the psychological toll of World War II, he planned to spend the rest of his days relaxing and writing in the tropics. The man's name was Ian Fleming, and it was here that he dreamed up the now legendary character James Bond. Once a writer's retreat, GoldenEye is now a fully-functioning resort, where you can indulge in a massage at FieldSpa or go snorkeling in a 4 acre lagoon. You can stay in the Fleming Villa, where the famed author penned "Casino Royale," or in various other suites, each with 400-thread count linens, a welcome gift of Blackwell rum and complimentary Wi-Fi to keep both secret agents and regular guests connected to the outside world. And even a spy's got to eat: Guests cite the classic Jamaican seafood at The Gazebo as especially scrumptious. But if you really want to channel 007, head to The Bizot Bar for a classic martini — shaken, not stirred.
