My husband and I stayed in The Wexford Hotel for a few nights whilst visiting Montego Bay. We have stayed here before and enjoyed it then, so booked in for 3 nights as a stopover. The hotel has improved in size since we were last here, about 4 years ago.
Our room was at the back of the hotel, and I am glad, as our previous stay was ocean view at the front of the hotel, which we found was very noisy at night as it overlooked the Hip Strip, and is very close to a few clubs and bars. Our view was of the local back road, so we didn't have much to look at.
The room is large in size, but we felt it was a bit unfinished, as it lacked in a few simple comforts which would have made a very big difference. The bed was comfortable and a good size, and we both slept soundly. It was clean and comfortable, but it lacked natural light, as there were no windows, except for the door which led out to the balcony, so during the day, we had to turn on the lights to get some light into the room.
The bathroom was basic, but the shower was honestly one of the best features, simply as the water pressure was so strong and the water very hot, which was nice.
We had selected breakfast as apart of our stay, which we would recommend as, it's hard to find breakfast along the Hip Strip, and it was a good breakfast. The selections changed daily and included typical West Indian as well as the usual fry up of eggs, French toast, sausages etc. it does get quite busy, so if there are no seats left out on the open veranda, you have to eat inside the restaurant, which, again, was ok, but there are no windows and they do not open the doors, which is a shame as doing that would make a massive difference.
When you stay at the hotel, you get free entrance into the local Aquasol beach, which it great if you have children, or just want to hang out on the beach and have a drink. There is a very small pool in the hotel, which we didn't use, we spent the time at Aquasol.
The hotel is good for couples, anyone who wants to have more of a hotel activity experience should look elsewhere. This place is basic and is somewhere you can stay as a stopover, or if you are planning to do more outside activities or exploring.
Overall, The Wexford Hotel, is affordable, clean and a great location for being central. We would definitely return, hopefully, when we do, they can improve on simple things such as a few windows, maybe some pictures and plants around the rooms to help make it feel more homely. Currently it is a bit sparse. But don't be put off by these simple things, we still had a great time.
