I've stayed at the Altamont West many times but it has been a few years since my last visit which didn't end so well! Knowing I was going to be arriving late in the evening in Montego Bay and having had a long travel day I went on line looking for a reasonable and close motel to the airport the...

We stayed for 3 days. Our deluxe room was a rectangle room filled with two double beds, a fridge, wardrobe and small but high chest of drawers. The glat screen TV had a good quality picture and had an excellent choice of movies. The second double bed meant it was a squeeze getting into the bathroom. Strangely there was no...

If you're looking for a great location, good food and amazing views at a great price, look no further. The staff ensured we were comfortable by upgrading our room to an oceanview, we got constant supply of towels (which was great since we were always at the beach across from the hotel or at the pool), and they kept our...

We got a really good time in the Altamont West Hotel. The beach is directly in front of the hotel, the breakfast was really great and the employes are very friendly. To walk to the center of montego bay you need like ten minutes and to get something to eat you need 10 sec because of all the local food...

I booked this hotel for a week for £458, they ended up charging me £564 instead because they forgot to add taxes to their advertised price. The wifi didn't stretch to my room so I had to pay extortionate fees from my phone provider if I wanted to access the internet. There is a phone in your room but they...

We are sorry for any confusion you experienced Rates: Please note that our reservations system and website both clearly outline our rates charged. However, when reservations are made through booking sites, often times they quote the hotel rates without including applicable local taxes and charges (not our responsibility).

The hotel is in the middle of the locals, I stayed in the "superior room" where we had oceanview. The free breakfast served are traditional Jamaican breakfast and bacon and eggs as an American touch. No refills and juice are served in small glasses. Everything has a price tag. We were without a key for roughly 12 hours but the...

Loved the room we stayed in. It was really quiet and tasteful. As always, the breakfast was super tasty. The servers are always down-to-earth and friendly. The front desk team is very well trained in the art of hospitality. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to make it back one day.

The ultimate best is a small, boutique hotel with plenty of ambience on the second story lobby-not sure if it's easily accessible by wheelchair. The lobby is clean with lots of nice artwork and even sports a grand piano. The ambience can get a little rowdy and loud at night, with noises from the strip and partying guest but I...

Sorry for the inconvenience of the shower not working....grave oversight. We will look at better accounting of the response of our maintenance team so that we can ensure that complaints are more efficiently managed going forward.
