Montego Bay, Jamaica, is known for many things. Our beaches, the party scene and some of the best all-inclusive resorts on the island are at the top of the list. What else is Mobay known for? You guessed it, Reggae Sumfest; the best and largest music festival in Jamaica and the Caribbean at large.

People travel from all over the world for Reggae Sumfest each year. It’s not just a single-stage show. It spans over a week, kickstarting with a beach party. But the main events are the Friday and Saturday night stage shows, which feature some of the best and hottest dancehall and reggae artists.

If you are planning on visiting for Reggae Sumfest, one thing you must consider is your accommodations. Ideally, you may prefer accommodations within walking distance of the different events.

However, the closest hotels are a good 45-minute to an hour walk away. All is not lost though. I do have some recommendations that are only a few minutes drive away and taxis are always readily available.

S Hotel

In my opinion, this would be one of your best choices if you are visiting Montego Bay for the sole purpose of attending Reggae Sumfest. It isn’t an all-inclusive resort, but it has all the basic amenities needed for a comfortable stay.

It is very modern and trendy with touches of luxury. It is only around a 7-minute drive from the Catherine Hall stadium, where the main events will be. There are restaurants on the property, so you can grab breakfast when you get in, in the mornings, or dinner before you head out at night. There is also a spa and pool if you are looking for some additional relaxation.

Deja Resort

Like S Hotel, this resort is on the hip strip, so you will be only a few minutes' drive from all the Reggae Sumfest events. Not to mention, a two- to three-minute stroll will get you to Margaritaville, Coral Cliff, Doctor's Cave Beach, Usain Bolt's Track and Records and other must-see attractions in Montego Bay. Like most resorts, they provide several categories of rooms, an outdoor pool, hot tub, business center, kids' club, gym, and conference room. Deja is a budget all-inclusive resort so, you could consider staying here if those are two things you are looking for.

The Royal Decameron

The beachside resort, the Royal Decameron, is a bit further down on the hip strip. It is still pretty close to all the Reggae Sumfest event venues and they are one of the most affordable all-inclusive resorts in Montego Bay, a great option if you are on a budget.

Toby’s Resort

Toby’s is another great option but the furthest away on this list, but still pretty close. It’s also a great option for those who don’t want to spend too much on accommodations, but want all the necessities for a comfortable stay. It is a family-owned resort that has always gotten great reviews, especially on its level of customer service. While they are not an all-inclusive resort they offer a breakfast plan that starts at around $15 per day.

As you can see, I didn’t add the usual high-end all-inclusive resorts to this list. The truth is if you will be here for Reggae Sumfest, you won’t have the time to enjoy the offerings of all-inclusive resorts.

While the larger, more luxurious resorts offer an upscale experience, these smaller options are for those seeking affordability without compromising comfort.

These hotels and resorts are close by, provide all the basics you will need, and most will even take you to the venue or at the very least, assist you in securing transportation.

These still aren't your only options. Airbnbs have been growing in Montego Bay. A quick search for “Airbnb in Montego Bay” will lead you to a variety of options that could work for you.

Remember, accommodations are usually booked out early for Sumfest so don’t wait and don’t take too long to make a decision. Book your stay as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, for some great prices, you can book with us using this link.
