El Greco Resort
Ranked #34 of 64 Hotels in Montego Bay
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We had a pleasant stay at El Greco - the hotel was good value for money, the accommodation was spacious, basic but clean and in a good location. The lifts took us to ground level right onto the Hip Strip which was great, we also had day passes to Doctors cave beach which was a nice bonus. The only issue I had is regarding my booking - the confirmation stated a prepayment of the first night would be charged on the day of booking - I checked with reception upon check-in and was assured that nothing was debited to my credit card so we paid the full amount for our stay at check-in. Since returning home and receipt of my statement I noticed that the prepayment was debited to my card! Future travelers beware so you don't end up having to go through the process of reimbursement of an over-payment.

Just 5 min from Hip Strip and Doctor's Cave Beach Club accessible through the elevator in the Montego Bay Cub building. Nice location on the hill with the best view in Montego Bay from their Seaview Restaurant (and some of the rooms). Rooms (or better described as apartments) are very specious and clean. Air cons in the bedrooms and cealing fan in the living area. Enough to keep you cool if it gets hot. Nice kitchen if you like to cook. Decor is 80's style but ok. The value is great for the price you pay. Full breakfast is included. Close to airport and all activities. Parking is available. Hotel has a secure gate.
Great food with the best view in town is the Seaview restaurant on location, also open to the public. The view is truly amazing and the food is really good. They serve international and local dishes. Great service. Sunsets are dazzling.

Room Tip: Ask for a ocean view if you want one. Some rooms have partial ocean view.

I can start by saying that the hotel was literally 5 minutes away from the airport, which is awesome. Even with the hotel being close by there was no noise of any kind from the airport or planes. I enjoyed how spacious the kitchen and living room were. It had a cute balcony and a nice decent room to rest. I which they had a microwave though, which they didn't have in my room or any room at that. The air conditioner was just the right temperature and the room was very clean. I must say that they DO NOT have iron boards or an Iron. It was very frustrating going back and forth to the front desk to ask for an iron because I should not have to leave my room to walk 5 minutes outside to the front desk just for an iron or blow dryer. Sucks!!! Nonetheless it was a nice, pretty hotel. The breakfast was very good. Just make sure to get there early, it takes a whileeee to get your food. AWESOMEEE! VIEW from the restaurant :)

Excellent breakfast included. Beautiful views at restaurant. Access to beach was great and enjoyed the little grocery on the way. Air conditioning was not needed in the living room. If there was a problem, they took care of it right away. They charged $3 per day for a key to the safe in spite of a room ad in the room that said it was free.

Location is excellent, I enjoyed the breakfast they served, I'm concerned that there was no air conditioner in living area, and the fan doesn't worked, checked out and spend some time in Kingston on our last day we were disappointed that the room we got comes with a smaller than an office refrigerator, but the staff found us one that we could used to keep our food frozen.

We stayed at this property over New Year's Eve for a night and it was pretty convenient being our last day in Jamaica before heading home after a great vacation in Ocho Rios! It's located 5 minutes from Sangster International Airport. My friends and I had just come from Ocho Rios at an all inclusive resort and this was a welcome break as we got to venture out more in MoBay.

The property is well maintained with some great landscaping. We felt safe as soon we got there. The staff were very pleasant and eager to serve.

The rooms were spacious and clean. The beddings were outdated but clean nonetheless.

It's not the Four Seasons so don't bring high expectations with you. It was just right for us as were only here for a night. We loved is also ample parking if needed.

The hotel pool is substandard and looked like the kind you would find at a select service motel. Good thing is there is a private beach within walking distance (from the elevator ride) and the hotel gives out day passes to the beach:)

I would recommend this property to someone passing through Montego Bay but not for a long term (2-10 days or more)
