    Welcoming guests to its private beach in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, 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, cottages, bungalows and villas  with cerulean walls, wooden furnishings and white and yellow or blue decor that pay homage to the beach, sea and sky  all offer complimentary Wi-Fi access, minifridges and private balconies or verandas. Meander across the hotel's manicured grounds for a meal and a Red Stripe beer at the open-air restaurant, or enjoy a massage and an iced lemongrass tea at the Ocean Spa. If the beach is more your scene, you'll find free snorkel gear, kayaks, paddleboards and Sunfish sailboats there, along with daily complimentary fruit punch from 11 a.m. to noon. What's more, you'll receive free afternoon tea and light snacks, as well as evening hot and cold hors d'oeuvres. Overall, travelers rave about the property's amenities and customer service; however, the boutique hotel's laid-back atmosphere means vacationers seeking a thriving nightlife scene may want to stay elsewhere.

    Since it opened in 1953 a little more than 8 miles west of Montego Bay, Jamaica, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas has played host to the likes of Grace Kelly, Cole Porter and Jackie Kennedy, among other celebrities. Guests say it's the property's setting that makes this boutique resort timeless and elegant. Inside the hotel's 36 guest rooms, travelers will find furniture designed by Ralph Lauren and embellished in whites, pinks and blues, plus four-poster beds and rain showers. Round Hill's 27 villa suites boast open-air living rooms and verandas, along with two to six bedrooms and cottage housekeepers (who will cook you breakfast for an additional fee). Some villas are also home to private pools surrounded by lush foliage. Although many visitors rave about the views from their accommodations, several caution that digs here are outdated. Reviewers also give mixed feedback about the resort's service. Round Hill offers a wide selection of activities for those who want to venture outside their rooms, including tennis, water sports and spa treatments in a restored 18th-century plantation house. After a fun-filled day in the sun, guests may dine at a restaurant headed by James Beard Award-winning chef Martin Maginley or sip cocktails at one of three bars. All-inclusive packages are available for travelers who wish to enjoy all of their meals and drinks on-site.

    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 boutique 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 villas, lagoon cottages or beach huts, each with an outdoor shower, a clawfoot tub, a welcome gift of Blackwell rum and complimentary Wi-Fi access to keep both secret agents and regular guests connected to the outside world. And even a spy's got to eat: You can satiate your appetite at one of two eateries: the treehouse-style Gazebo, which serves internationally inspired dishes, and Bizot Bar, where you can savor casual Jamaican dishes poolside while sipping a classic martini – shaken, not stirred. Although many vacationers praise the property's grounds and accommodations, several say the resort's customer service and cuisine are subpar at best. Note: Some areas will be temporarily unavailable while the property undergoes renovations from early May to mid-December 2019.

    Rockhouse Hotel gets its name from its rocky surroundings, which play into every aspect of this boutique hotel 3 miles west of downtown Negril, Jamaica. Its 34 air-conditioned villas and guest rooms are built directly into the volcanic stone of Pristine Cove, and contain mosquito-netted four-poster beds and eco-friendly solar heaters. Some villas even seem to be rising directly from the waves – recent guests appreciated the seclusion of their private wraparound balconies and open-air showers that meld seamlessly into the rocks. Like Rockhouse's accommodations, its restaurants' appearances and offerings reflect the bays and coves of Jamaica. Guests can enjoy a crab turnover in the airy, open dining room at Rockhouse Restaurant or savor peppered shrimp – a Jamaican street favorite – atop Pirates Cave in the Pushcart eatery (though some visitors think the restaurants are quite expensive). Even Rockhouse's spa takes cues from its surroundings – travelers can indulge in cliffside spa treatments like an invigorating coffee scrub or the Caribbean Drench, which mimics a Jamaican downpour.

    Much like its sister property, Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall, Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall impresses guests with its top-notch cuisine and resort amenities. In addition to having access to seven restaurants, a pastry shop, a coffee shop and three bars (including a swim-up pool bar) on-site, visitors will find three additional eateries and another watering hole at Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall. (Past visitors especially enjoyed Di Roza, Fuzion and Choicez for their wide array of options and delectable fare.) Additionally, previous guests appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms, which come equipped with private balconies or patios, complimentary Wi-Fi access, rainfall showers, flat-screen TVs and minibars restocked daily. However, some encountered customer service issues during their stays. Aside from the fact that the property is kid-friendly and all-inclusive, Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall is popular among travelers thanks to its location: It's conveniently situated just 7 miles northeast of Doctor's Cave Beach, one of Jamaica's most famous shorelines. And just like other Hyatt properties, the resort participates in the World of Hyatt rewards program, so members can accrue or use points here.

    This Montego Bay, Jamaica, retreat has been welcoming guests to its 400 beachside acres for more than 50 years. Each air-conditioned guest room and suite contains a cable TV, a minibar, a balcony or patio, a coffee maker and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Most accommodations overlook the ocean, but standard rooms and select suites offer pool and garden panoramas. Outside this Preferred Legend outpost's rooms, visitors will find an 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., as well as tennis and squash courts, a kids area with a playground and supervised activities, a gym and the 68,000-square-foot Fern Tree Spa. Half Moon also caters to animal lovers; travelers enjoy watching recently hatched sea turtles return to the ocean, as well as riding and swimming with horses from the on-site equestrian center. When guests get hungry from a day filled with activities, they can venture to one of Half Moon's three restaurants. The eateries serve everything from modern Jamaican fare to traditional Italian dishes to an array of international favorites. Vacationers love the property's cuisine but warn that meals are pricey. To save some coin, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards Program can pay for rooms with reward certificates.

    Sandals Royal Caribbean gives guests a taste of the Far East about 5 miles northeast of downtown Montego Bay, Jamaica. Hop aboard the Wayang Doll – a dragon-shaped boat – and visit Sandals' private island, where you can dine on curry at Royal Thai, get a bamboo polish at the Red Lane Spa, lounge by a pool or dance the night away in the flickering light of tiki torches. Back on the mainland, you can spend your time in one of six additional pools, on the beach or off-roading through the jungle in a four-wheel drive vehicle. If you somehow find that there isn't enough to do at this adults-only, all-inclusive resort, you can take advantage of the "Stay at 1, Play at 3 Program" for access to amenities at both Sandals Montego Bay and Sandals Inn. 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, some guests say their accommodations let in a lot of noise from airplanes landing at and departing from Sangster International Airport, which is just a few miles away. For more space and perks like private infinity pools, glass floors and outdoor showers, consider upgrading to one of the over-the-water private island villas.

    Sandals Royal Plantation, part of Sandals' Jamaican fleet of adults-only, all-inclusive resorts, 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 a marble bathroom, a king-sized bed draped in Italian linens and a private balcony or patio. The luxurious (albeit dated) digs and top-notch 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. (Keep in mind, spa services cost extra.) After a full day, dine in the lap of luxury at one of Royal Plantation's five restaurants. For an extra swanky treat, head to C Bar, the only Champagne and caviar bar in Jamaica.

    Seated on Jamaica's northern coast in Montego Bay, the Iberostar Grand Rose Hall flaunts luxurious amenities designed to enhance guest comfort. When you check into one of the adults-only, all-inclusive resort's 295 suites – each adorned with tropical orange and teal tones – you'll be greeted with a pillow menu, a minibar (stocked to your specifications), complimentary Wi-Fi access, butler service and a whirlpool tub. Outside your room, you'll find four a la carte restaurants, two buffets, six bars (including one in a nightclub), a spa, a beach and three pools surrounded by canopied lounge chairs. Keep in mind, spa services cost extra. Most previous guests enjoyed their stays at this GRUPO IBEROSTAR property, citing the friendly staff, clean beach, top-notch cuisine and well-appointed accommodations as highlights. However, a few past visitors lamented some of the on-site eateries' limited hours and slow service.

    The Cliff Hotel earns praise from guests for a variety of reasons, chief among them being the property's stunning grounds and attentive customer service. Situated in Negril, Jamaica, The Cliff Hotel boasts a spa, an outdoor pool, a fitness center, fee-based yoga classes and an outdoor game room. Aside from the ample amenities, the hotel's 26 suites and villas also impress visitors thanks to their size and decor.

Spring for a villa if you want even more room to spread out (villas measure between 1,050 and 5,000 square feet), plus a private courtyard and an outdoor soaking tub. Catch even more vistas from the on-site Zest Restaurant, which specializes in seafood dishes. Or, simply relax with a cocktail in hand at one the resort's three bars. Lovebirds take note: Reviewers said The Cliff Hotel is a perfect retreat for a romantic getaway or honeymoon.

    Beaches Negril is located less than 4 miles northeast of downtown Negril, Jamaica, along the widest stretch of Seven Mile Beach. Affiliated with the Sandals Resorts brand, this Beaches property boasts an array of all-inclusive amenities for travelers of all ages, including tennis courts, a water park, a supervised kids camp and "Sesame Street" character meet and greets, plus Xbox lounge and a teens club. What's more, visitors can borrow water sports equipment like scuba diving gear, kayaks, paddleboards and Hobie Cat sailboats. When it's time to dine, travelers can grab a bite to eat in one of 10 restaurants and snack venues. All room rates cover meals and drinks at every on-site eatery. Past diners raved about the resort's dining establishments, especially the cuisine served at the beachside seafood restaurant, Stew Fish, and the Italian-inspired Venetian. Reviews were a bit more mixed for the resort's Caribbean-inspired accommodations: Some described the rooms as well-appointed and clean, while others said the interiors were outdated and featured thin walls that let in a lot of noise. Luxury Level rooms, the resort's standard accommodations, include private balconies or patios, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and stocked minibars, while upgraded rooms and suites offer more space and concierge or butler services.

    On the same strip of Montego Bay, Jamaica, sand as Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay, Secrets St. James offers all the amenities of a luxury all-inclusive on the beach, but it's only about 5 southwest of Sangster International Airport. The adults-only resort's 350 suites are elegantly appointed in soft, neutral tones and include canopied beds, 24-hour room service, flat-screen TVs and private balconies with deck chairs. Some of those balconies overlook St. James' stretch of ivory beach, but all accommodations are within reach of the pool, where guests can relax with complimentary wait service – part of Secrets' Unlimited-Luxury package. Unlimited-Luxury also allows guests to take advantage of Wi-Fi access, attend themed parties, participate in activities like snorkeling and tennis, and indulge in unlimited food and drinks. Past travelers give Secrets St. James' nine dining venues mixed reviews, though most said they enjoyed their meals at seafood-focused Oceana and Mexican-influenced El Patio. Others cautioned that some parts of the property are currently undergoing renovations, so expect some closures and construction noise.

    Set amid a 500-acre wilderness preserve and along a 2-mile-stretch of sand, the all-inclusive Sandals South Coast provides guests with Sandals' signature activities, plus the natural beauty of Jamaica's southern coast. All accommodations feature patios or balconies that overlook a white sand beach and contain four-poster beds, minifridges and HD smart TVs. Some travelers caution that most guest rooms and suites appear worn, so if you're looking for updated digs, consider booking one of the overwater bungalows, which were added in 2017, or a room in the renovated Italian Village building. You may dine on traditional Jamaican dishes at Schooner's or Eleanors, enjoy an Italian-inspired meal at guest-favorite Giuseppe's or sit for a meal at seven other restaurants. The room rates covers all nine dining venues. But make sure you wait an hour after eating before jumping into one of three pools, one of which is the largest zero-entry pool in Jamaica. Or, lounge on the sprawling beach (which visitors say is clean and 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.
