We had a wonderful time at Jamaica Inn. We were made very welcome in beautiful private surroundings with service that was second to none. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are free to do as you wish: laze on the beach under leafy trees; enjoy the sunshine; swim in the warm Caribbean waters off the sandy beach. There was no feeling of being crowded and you could have been in your own private home.
The food is excellent and the manager’s cocktail party and barbecue on the beach on Tuesday evenings is a must. The breakfast menu is fascinating with a wide range of European or Jamaican fair (including saltfish and ackee if you wish) and the fruit selections and Jamaican coffee were eagerly anticipated each day.
All the staff are very courteous and friendly and enjoy a little banter. The service, whilst excellent, is discreet and not overdone. The rooms are very comfortable with their own private veranda. If you wish you can have your air conditioning on, but we enjoyed just having the gentle waft of a room fan to keep us comfortable at night. The décor gives a taste of old time Jamaica and furnished with the same tradition, having old prints of historic times and places on the walls as well.
We organised boat trips with Tony, a local private operator (contactable through the hotel) for fishing and caught bonito and tuna in the early morning which was then prepared in the kitchens for us later in the day. Other attractions we enjoyed were riding in tubes down the White River and a new attraction at Mystic Mountain with a chair lift ride through the tropical forest overlooking Ocho Rios and with an added thrill of riding a tracked toboggan through the trees.
All in all, Jamaica Inn is a holiday destination to die for.
