“Great Location, good rooms, ok service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

This is a great hotel if you don't want to go the all-inclusive route in Montego Bay. I have been to this hotel multiple times and it has been consistently the same. The location is awesome! It is very safe because there is 24/7 security. The females at the front desk can be rude and slow at times, but it is Jamaica after all. I would defintiely take advantage of the free breakfast in the morning, but get there early because they tend to run out of the jamaican breakfast which is very good. They also give you a voucher for Doctor's Cave beach which is also a plus! Overall, the rooms are reasonable and functional. There is a full kitchen which can come in very handy when staying for an extended period of time given that eating out can become expensive very quickly. This hotel also has wifi, but the signal strength depends on where your room is located. Try going outside to the balcony if having problems with getting a signal.
Overall, a good reasonable hotel!

This is a no frills property. Front desk was very nice. The landscaping was nice as well. Free breakfast in the am outdoors with a beautiful view of the ocean, and daily passes to Drs Cave beach. The AC is only in the bedroom, but leaving our ceiling fan on and the balcony door open provided the comfort we needed. Easy access to the beach and Hip Strip via elevator. Property was very secure, will be visiting again.

We spent five nights at the El Greco and, overall, a very pleasant stay. We were in the two bedroom suite. It was very large and could have held more than the three of us that were traveling. Bedrooms each have a full bath and there was a half bath downstairs. Furniture fits the 'beach' location and small TVS in both bedrooms and the living area.

The location is fantastic. A quick elevator ride puts you on Hip Street and right across from Doctor's Cave Beach (hotel provides day passes). The beach is truly beautiful, don't miss the Sand Bar for a meal (ask for Eva).

Service is good, restaurant is OK. We had breakfast there one morning (included with the room) but after the first time went down to a nice hotel restaurant right on Hip Street for breakfast. The lunch they served was much better than the breakfast.

We used Solomon, the taxi driver who is at the hotel. Excellent driver, even stayed up into the wee hours of the morning to bring us home from Sum Fest.

Improvements: AC is a bit weak in the bedrooms, though the living room AC was just fine. Some trouble getting on WiFi but we were out so much it didn't really matter.

Overall, a great place for a family or larger group traveling. It isn't an all inclusive but makes up for it with its pleasant atmosphere and actually gets you out to enjoy locals and the various their various craft shopes.

If you want close proximity to the beach, and an amazing view at breakfast this is the place. We only stayed here the one night, but thought the food was decent, and the staff very friendly. It's a cool walk to the beach, down through some apartment complex in front of El Greco to the street. You get a beach pass with your accommodation to Dr. Cave beach which is an amazing beach with lot's of good food around as well. All in all, good value for a quick stay, and would go back again.

Room Tip: Eat breakfast facing the beach in the morning.

I've been to Jamaica twice and both times we stayed at El Greco (it's been a couple years, but it was great). The first time, my sister and I went by ourselves and stayed here, absolutely LOVED it. The suites are clean and you have a full kitchen if you choose to cook (we never did, but the refrigerator helped as we stocked up on the delicious local fruits!). Security is good, there is a guard on every floor at night. As we all know, Jamaica can be VERY dangerous, so I would advise against anyone, male or female to be walking around at night. The staff was amazing and they even helped with arranging tours, letting us know the best sites to see etc. All in all, we had a great time, and the second time we came, we brought our parents with us. The hot breakfast was incredible and I looked forward to my ackee and saltfish every morning. My father is from the Caribbean so he enjoyed the breakfast very much as well. I highly recommend El Greco to anyone visiting Jamaica.

This is a dated property that has poor air conditioning and only in the bedroom of the suites. The furniture is not comfortable, so you may sit on an old uncomfortable wicker couch to watch television in a hot sweaty room or go to the bedroom (no TV) and HOPE it cools enough to sleep comfortably. The staff are mostly nice and they keep the place pretty clean. Most of the rooms have the bedroom facing a busy street which is noisy with traffic all night. If you do stay here, insist on Bldg. "D".

My husband and I stayed at El Greco for a week. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great value, clean rooms. staff very approachable and helpful. would highly recommend. Enjoyed the variety of Jamaican breakfast and if preferred there was the American version, e.g., eggs, bacon, etc.

Room Tip: Can be hot in living area as there is no AC only a ceiling fan which isn't much good. Found tra...
