You are sold! You made a decision to vacation in Jamaica so now its a matter of the best of the best, right?

Here we say, no problem, I now present them to you, the best resorts in Jamaica - based on traveler ratings.

What are the best resorts in Jamaica?

ANSWER: by Wellesley

Sigh! And this is not a trick question right Britnay? lol.

OK, I know we mentioned that we have some of the best hotels, guest houses and resorts in the Caribbean - awarded year on year!

But which are the best? In other words, the best of the best!

Excellent question!

I'm going to tell you, but let me lay down some criteria for this award first - fair?


  1. I am only going to consider or factor resorts on hotels, not so much B&B's, villas, vacation rentals and lodgings, I'll share those another time.

  2. I'm only considering those with a star rating of 4 and above (for obvious reasons), and

  3. They will be ranked only based on traveller reviews, nothing else!


Here you go...

The TOP 20 resorts in Jamaica...

... ranked by traveler rating across the top booking platforms online.

  1. GeeJam
  2. Jamaica Inn
  3. Grand Lido Negril Au Naturel All-Suite-Resort
  4. The Spa Retreat Boutique Hotel
  5. Tensing Pen Resort
  6. Hermosa Cove - Jamaica's Villa Hotel
  7. Marblue Villa Suites
  8. S Hotel Jamaica
  9. The Cliff Hotel
  10. The Caves
  11. The Round Hill Hotel
  12. Rockhouse Hotel
  13. The Spanish Court Hotel
  14. Couples Sans Souci
  15. Couples Tower Isle
  16. GoldenEye
  17. Sunset at the Palms
  18. Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa
  19. Hotel Riu Palace Jamaica
  20. Sandals South Coast

Please note that is is based on today's ranking, so this can possibly change as early as later today, based again on reviews by travellers.

That said, give and take, most of these will remain in the Top 20 on any given day.

Of course, when you are ready to book, don't hesitate to check my Jamaica Booking page for special deals and $savings on some of these awesome hotels.

I hope this helps!

Hi really enjoyed watching the road trip. Some of the places I recognised and I saw and learned about several new places. Very entertaining. St Ann is my parish which added something extra to the excitement. Thank you
