When booking a hotel on the tropical island paradise of Jamaica, you can choose from luxurious all-inclusive resorts in Ocho Rios, affordable homely hostels in Kingston or a romantic getaway in Negril. Here’s where to stay when visiting Jamaica.
If you’re traveling to Jamrock with your significant other, reserve a room at the romantic Couples Negril resort. The all-inclusive couples-only beachfront resort is the best place to surf and sunbathe with your partner. There’s even a slice of the beach where you can soak up the rays in your birthday suit. If that’s not your thing, get a massage on the beach or partake in unlimited scuba diving and watersports, including paddleboarding. The 234 guest rooms and suites feature a tropical aesthetic with luxurious amenities and private balconies.
Vacation like James Bond at GoldenEye in St Mary. Ian Fleming wrote many of the James Bond novels at the family-friendly Island Outpost property. Forty-five villas, cottages and beach huts are sprinkled along the private beach and surrounded by lush jungle. Some rooms have direct access to the lagoon and all feature a record player and a selection of records. Take a dip in the circular pool that jets out over the ocean, indulge in a facial at the Fieldspa and enjoy dinner and drinks at the al fresco dining establishments.
Stay in the middle of all the action in Kingston at the Ragamuffin Hostel. With eccentric decor and affordable rates, this is the perfect place for budget travelers who are eager to immerse themselves in Jamaica’s unique culture, as it’s just a stone’s throw away from Devon House and the Bob Marley Museum. Book a bed in the dorm rooms that offer guests privacy curtains, reading lamps and power outlets in each unit. There’s also a coffee shop on-site.
