Overview

Superb location in central Kingston
Customer service is hit or miss

A luxury hotel set in central Kingston, Jamaica, the Spanish Court Hotel's exterior is that of a classic European villa, while inside, it is all about sleek decor and modern amenities. The hotel's 125 guest rooms and suites boast 48-inch LED TVs, free Wi-Fi access, oval-shaped soaking tubs, minibars and iPod docking stations next to king-sized or twin beds. Guests can swim in one of two pools, work out in the fitness center or indulge in a massage or facial at the spa. Venture outside to experience Kingston – Bob Marley's home – with its vibrant reggae scene and range of Jamaican cuisine. Or, take a cue from recent guests and stay in and grab a bite to eat at one of three on-site eateries. They praised all of the dining outlets' varied and delicious cuisine. However, a few former visitors said the customer service was not up to par.
