    Jamaica Inn
    Ocho Rios
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1557 reviewsTripAdvisor (1557)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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.

    GoldenEye
    St. Mary
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 411 reviewsTripAdvisor (411)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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
    Negril
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1208 reviewsTripAdvisor (1208)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    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.

    Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel
    Kingston
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 332 reviewsTripAdvisor (332)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Blending old-world Caribbean charm with modern conveniences, Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel is a hit with guests. Situated in downtown Kingston, Jamaica, the property is ideal for vacationers and business travelers who don't mind staying a bit removed from the shoreline (the closest beach is about 10 miles southwest). Aside from the attentive and friendly service from the staff, visitors consistently praise the hotel's 41 suites. Accommodations feature walk-in rain showers, complimentary Wi-Fi access, smart TVs with wireless keyboards, Persian rugs and separate lounge areas. When you're not relaxing in your room, check out the hotel's other facilities, such as the Regency Bar & Lounge, a favorite among guests thanks to its late night service. While visitors say the property's pool and fitness center are small, reviewers rave about the two on-site eateries. The Regency Restaurant offers a fine dining menu and atmosphere, while The Terrace is more casual. You'll also find an on-site pastry shop with homemade desserts and chocolates. Plus, if you tire of the hotel's cuisine, you're within walking distance of some of Kingston's top restaurants.

    Coyaba Beach Resort & Club
    Montego Bay
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 668 reviewsTripAdvisor (668)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking

    The ancient Arawaks had a term — "coyaba" — that referred to a restful place of feasting and merriment. Coyaba Beach Resort & Club attempts to recreate that ideal with modern-day amenities. A little more than 6 miles northeast of Montego Bay, this small, family-owned resort houses 50 air-conditioned guest rooms complete with satellite TV and French doors leading out to private balconies. Some guests think the resort's beach is somewhat small, but many enjoyed the complimentary snorkeling and kayak excursions offered there. When a day on the waves whets their appetites, guests take to one of Coyaba's three restaurants. To experience Coyaba's relaxation, head to Spa Heaven for a 'Heavenly Hut' Beachside Massage or a Tropical Body Scrub. After all, it wouldn't be "coyaba" without a little bliss.
