What are the best luxury hotels in Jamaica? - Jewel Grande

Last week, I shared the article on 'What are the best resorts in Jamaica?' and it created quite a stir - and even ruffle some feathers!

Understandable though, as you and I know, everybody has their personal favourite, regardless of star rating, class or special amenities.

But before you know it, this question, 'What are the best luxury hotels in Jamaica?' popped!

What are the best luxury hotels in Jamaica?

ANSWER: by Wellesley

Great question!

But just before I answer, to make it absolutely transparent, I'll again state the criteria for selection and ranking. As you know there are various considerations so I prefer not to leave it to my readers' assumption.

  1. The first, and key, consideration is that the property must be a 4 or 5 star property.

    I thought about starting with hotels with 5 stars only for obvious reasons , but since the difference between the 4 and 5 star is so subtle, I made a decision to include the 4 stars as well - especially since I personally believe that some of
    the 4 stars are seriously rivaling the 5 stars now.

  2. This time, I'm factoring all the best properties from the list above, not just hotels.

    You see, I'm thinking like the visitor, and asking myself, 'if I asked for luxury hotels, I'd sure want to see all the properties that are ranked as luxury, not just hotels in the traditional sense. In other words, luxury is the
    main criterion.

  3. I'll sort them by yes, traveller reviews, not price, deals, distance from airport or anything else like that.


OK, great, here you go, the...

  4. Couples Negril
  5. Royalton Blue Waters
  6. Beaches Negril Resort & Spa
  7. Sandals Montego Bay
  8. Royalton Negril
  9. Sandals Royal Caribbean

Remember that ranking on visitors' rating inherently makes this list fluid and so this can change at any time!

Another quick point!

You'll likely notice, for example, that there are hotels in the top 20 of hotels in Jamaica, but are not on here, why?

Because, those were strictly based on user ratings first, not hotel class. In this ranking, as outlined at point #1, we started first by the class or star rating.

I hope that helped.
