Jamaica hotels can provide everything you need for the perfect vacation destination. From luxury hotels and resorts to quality but budget-friendly 3-star hotels, you can expect fine food, quality accommodations, and plenty of fun things to do along the miles of beach bordering the clear Caribbean water.
Visitors come to Jamaica year-round because of the near perfect weather, which makes it a terrific destination whether you’re booking a spring break trip, a summer getaway, or a winter vacation to escape a colder climate. The peak season for visiting the island runs roughly from December through the middle of April, and hotel rates are typically higher during this time, so if you have your heart set on one of the best Jamaica beach hotels, be sure to book in advance.
There are dozens of options for places to stay, with Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Kingston, and Negril being the most popular areas. The Jamaican beaches are generally excellent all around the island as well. Some of the best Jamaica beach hotels to consider when making your itinerary include the Beaches Negril All Inclusive Resort and Spa (pictured), Sandals Royal Plantation, Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Resort, and Negril Tree House Resort.
The Ritz Carlton Rose Hall Resort is an excellent choice if you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury accommodations during your Jamaica beach vacation. Step out onto your private balcony to views of the shimmering waters, secluded beach, and the green mountains in the distance. Located on 5,000 acres, the expansive grounds only add to the sense of relaxation and getting away from daily life. There is more than enough space to go for strolls on the beach, laze by the pool, relax with a spa treatment, or play a set of tennis—and you still won’t feel crowded. Guests will enjoy five superior restaurants at the resort and for relaxation, an 18-hole onsite golf course. The resort is within minutes of three additional courses and shopping venues.
For adults only, the Sandals Royal Plantation provides the ultimate in a romantic quiet getaway, and it’s a very popular honeymoon destination. The hotel is situated into a bluff overlooking the turquoise waters and beach below. Guests at the Royal are surrounded by colonial elegance and charm from the delicate china and silver spoons used at teatime to the comfortable four-poster canopy beds. Stroll the grounds where peacocks roam freely adding to the ambience of the hotel or relax in the pool or hot tub. This is one of the all-inclusive Jamaica hotels, which means that you have nothing to worry about once you arrive—all the details will be taken care of.
For a different kind of vacation experience, the Negril Tree House Resort offers a casual and laid-back atmosphere. The small hotel is situated along the popular Seven Mile Beach district within walking distance of local restaurants, bars, clubs, and entertainment. There are no extra amenities at the Tree House as there are at the larger resort hotels, but that’s actually part of its charm. Guests enjoy large rustic rooms and an exceptionally friendly atmosphere and staff who know guests by name. Relax on the porch from a comfortable hammock overlooking the pristine beach while listening to the sounds of reggae music.
