Find the best hotels and resorts to visit across Jamaica. From luxurious to budget conscious, everyone can enjoy their trip to Jamaica.
Looking for June/July honeymoon earlier the better. Aiming for earlier in June. We're looking for good drinks and just relaxing after the wedding. Budget is no more than 500 night. Postcard beach with chairs is a must. Closer to the air port would be nice. We're looking at Sandals Montego bay or Excellence. Any other places or recommendations? Any input on those 2 resorts?
Hi, I’m invited to a wedding in the fall at the Grand Palladium & Lady Hamilton resort in Jamaica. I’ve been seeing a lot of bad reviews for this resort and I was looking for some more opinions on it? I was hoping to find some people who have stayed their recently that can comment on if it is as bad as the reviews make it out to be. I sort of find it hard to believe it’s THAT bad but maybe I’m just desperate for a vacation haha. Thanks!
I have a trip with my gf planned the week of Easter and have been reading some bad reviews, and bad reports from friends that the resorts they stayed at have been terrible. In specifics, the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton. We are thinking of changing our itinerary to a different resort; anyone have any recent experiences? Maybe travel elsewhere in the Caribbean? EDIT: we have rebooked and are now staying at the Iberostar Rose Hall
Looking to book an all inclusive stay in Jamaica for the first week of September. Coming with my gf who will be visiting for first time. I stayed at Riu Montego Bay few years ago. We are looking for a resort (preferably adults only, but not limitted to) with good food and variety of options, fun nightlife (clubs, parties), good drink options (large variety of liquor, many bars, pool bar, minibar in room with drinks restocked), excursions such as scuba diving and other thrilling activities, and nice clean beach with no seaweed. So far we are looking Riu Ocho Rios, Riu Tropical Bay, Iberostar Rose Hall, Hyatt Ziva, Jewel Paradise. Please recommend me a nice resort you have been to. Booking this Tuesday.
There are a lot of posts about the best all inclusives in Negril, but they're usually owned by international megacorporations (I believe Sunset at the Palms is a locally-owned AI, but please correct me if I'm mistaken.) Where are your favourite independent places to stay on the beach in Negril? The cliffs are cool too but I feel like there are more independent hotels there than on the beach. I'll start: Firefly Beach cottages! It's literally just a bed with barely enough room to put your suitcase, but to me it felt cozy and adventurous. The grounds are beautiful, the outdoor showers are a fun experience, and the staff are fantastic.
I had an awful experience recently at Secrets in Cozumel, Mexico, where they pretty much had the resort separated for their timeshare guests with gorgeous rooms, nicer beach access and an oceanfront pool. Non-timeshare/vacation club guests had to stay on a separate side of the resort, our room had black mold, pools with no views etc. Long story short, my boyfriend and I want to visit Jamaica this winter and I’m looking for an excellent resort to visit that treats all their guest the same. I’m really trying to avoid an experience similar to Cozumel and enjoy a luxury vacation! Thanks in advance, friends! TLDR: looking for a nice all-inclusive resort for two couples without timeshare gimmicks/resort restrictions
I don’t know if this is the place to ask… but my mom and I are planning to go to Jamaica soon, and we are considering this hotel… the only catch is the fact that this hotel’s restaurants require reservations. Would anyone happen to know what this entails? Like, if I called in to make a reservation for a half an hour from now (hypothetically), would that be acceptable? Or do I *have* to make the reservations in the morning? An hour before hand? If anyone can help me with this, I would be so thankful and grateful! Thank you so much!
Looking to book something in January. Trying to keep the lodging costs to under 1300/ea per week (2). Planning to spend more on activities there. Where would you stay and what activities are worth the time? I like to fish a lot, even spearfish. Snorkeling for sure. Maybe diving. I've heard the waterfalls are cool to climb up. What would you recommend for someone in country for a week?
It’s my first time going to Jamaica. I am going for the last week of September. 2 adults. Any suggestions for places that may meet my needs? Negril for now, but open to suggestions. I want to go to a resort with beach access, outdoor activities (zip line, scuba, snorkeling, etc.) spa (massages and facials), INCREDIBLE food and strong drinks, bonus points for nightlife such as fine dining and clubs. I am all for supporting local resorts however is it more expensive to do all of those activities at a non inclusive? How difficult is it to plan those activities? Thanks in advance!
