All-inclusive resort in the heart of Ocho Rios
Slow service in some on-site restaurants, according to a few guests
Recent guests said there was no single standout aspect of the all-inclusive Moon Palace Jamaica. Everything from the friendly staff to the well-maintained grounds to the quality of the beds in the guest rooms and suites were nothing short of superb. Activities also leave little to be desired. Along with its central location in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Moon Palace Jamaica can organize a dolphin swim, a sunset cruise, a snorkeling excursion and tours to can't-mis sights like the Bob Marley Museum. Back at the resort, guests can unwind on the property's spotless (albeit small) beach, lounge around four pools or pamper themselves at the Awe Spa or the on-site beauty salon. Kids aren't left out, either: The Playroom offers games and supervised activities, and at the property's FlowRider, children can try riding waves on a bodyboard or surfboard. Meanwhile, adults have access to a swim-up bar and a nightclub. To satisfy their appetites, visitors can head to one of five dining venues, including a grab-and-go cafe, an open-air restaurant by the beach and a Pan-Asian eatery with a sushi chef and hibachi tables. Most past diners praised the resort's cuisine, although a few said service in the restaurants can be slow at times. When it's time to bed down, each of the property's 705 accommodations features a stocked minibar, a smart TV, free Wi-Fi access, a liquor dispenser and a complimentary bottle of red wine upon arrival.

After undergoing a full renovation, this family-friendly property reopened in 2015 as a high-end luxury resort with majestic marble interiors. The sleek beach-house-inspired rooms have balconies with water views, and include iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, liquor dispensers, and welcome wine.

Travel + Leisure


This resort isn't about lying around all day – though the bright, airy rooms and 17 acres of private Ochos Rios beachfront certainly provide pristine places to do that. The first Moon Palace property outside of Mexico is about staying active with the FlowRider surf simulator, four pools and swim-up bar, and adults-only night club.
