“timeless elegance”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Usually change is good. But sometimes when something has a quality about it, change is not
good.
That is the case with Jamaica Inn. I first went there in 1963 and just returned after a short visit. Yes, there has been some updating where needed but the important stuff is still the same. The sense of English colonial charm of an era long gone, elegantly simple with wonderful service. It is a place to go if one wants to escape the 21 century for a few days. There are no TV sets anywhere. Yes, there is WiFi so the link is not completely broken with the rest of the world. But just be happy to be on a gorgeous beach with soft sand with a warm clear ocean to cool off in after your first rum punch brought to your beach chair every mid morning.

My wife and I stayed in one of the Verandah suites on the beach at the Jamaica Inn for our honeymoon. In addition to the clear blue waters, complementary massages, welcome drinks, and spectacular views, we were blown away by the hospitality of the staff! They treated us like royalty and their response was always "No problem!". All of the food was exceptionally delicious, and some of the tastiest dishes we have ever had. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. Lastly, be sure to use the services at Club Mobay and take the private transfer from there. From the plane, we were able to bypass the customs line (which was fairly long), and wait for our driver while drinking rum punch and eating patties. Then it was off to the resort while drinking a red stripe in the back of a nice car. Best trip ever! -Dr Steve and Christina

We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the super friendly staff. The room was amazing and we had the best sleep since a log time. Breakfast is super delicious with fresh fruits every day. Go with the Jamaican breakfast, it's so good! We definitely gonna stay there again.

The Jamaica Inn was an amazing family fun adventure! They have one of the best beaches in Jamaica with beautiful blue water that was just the perfect temperature for swimming. The service was amazing and our favorite waiter was Johnson. He made our children feel so welcome and special. Patrice was our bar server and could not have been nicer to our family. All of the staff made us feel as though we were the only guests at the Inn. The band even let my daughter sing with them each night! It was a special treat. The Inn also has an adorable puppy named Shadow that the kids enjoyed! We stayed in cottage #6. The cottages were air conditioned, comfortable, amazing, and big! There was amazing snorkeling areas right at our beach and the Inn is close to other sites such as the Blue Hole and Dunns River Falls.. Overall we enjoyed this hotel very much and would definitely enjoy coming back again sometime soon! THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR AN AMAZING STAY AT THE JAMACIA INN!

Room Tip: The cottages are more expensive but bigger and provide more privacy.
