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.

Critic Reviews



Privately owned, this intimate property is relaxing, welcoming, and just 10 minutes east of Montego Bay airport. From the plantation-style great house to the guest rooms, decorated with colonial prints and hand-carved mahogany furniture, you get the graciousness and comfort of a country inn with the amenities of a larger resort.


For travelers who want to enjoy a resort experience but still prefer a more intimate hotel, the Coyaba Beach Resort is an attractive upper-middle-range option. The 50 plantation-style rooms are spacious if a bit dated, and guests won’t feel crowded or cramped at the private beach (even though it's small).
