Which Jamaican Resort Is The Best?

Which Jamaican Resort Is The Best

Answered by Tracie Shortridge, Associate Writer

With the tropical climate, the warm sea breeze, the miles of white sand beach, the beautiful flora & fauna and of course the friendliness people on earth all located in Jamaica, the island is a Hotel Haven.

As at 2016 (statistics for 2017 not yet available), there were 7,576 hotel rooms located in Montego Bay alone! So, can you imagine the increase experienced since then?

And, can you imagine the numbers in the rest of the island? Outside of Montego Bay, hotel meccas include Ocho Rios in St. Ann, Negril in Westmoreland and Port Antonio in Portland.

Of course, all hotel operators/owners believe they have the best hotel on the island. And their devoted visitors will attest to this as well based on their enjoyment.

But, how does one measure “best”?

Well, benchmark systems are used such as the ever popular Trip Advisor (www.tripadvisor.com) where guests who have stayed at a particular hotel can log on, rate and comment on the experience and service.

But still, how does this define “best”?

There are various types of hotels in Jamaica to cater to the individual taste and needs of travelers.

We have travelers who would prefer a local experience and would therefore book hotels that are less commercialized and more in tune with nature, while there are other travelers who would love to lounge around all day by the pool, get a deep tissue massage in the Spa or stay in their room and order room service.

So with the various tastes and needs of travelers being different, it makes it difficult to say exactly which hotel is the best.

The clientele will rate hotels based on what they liked or disliked about their experience as well as the value for money they paid.

For instance, Holiday Inn Resort has been rated as great value for money as you pay for your room and you get breakfast included however, you have to purchase additional meals, while a Sandals Resort is totally all-inclusive where you pay for your room and you get all the food and drinks you can possibly partake.

So, a Holiday Inn may be perfect for a casual traveler or business traveler but the Sandals Resorts would cater for a full vacation experience.

Then again, if you would like to take the children with you, a Sandals Resorts would probably not be suitable as most are usually couples only Resorts so you will need a Beaches Resort or Round Hill Hotel. This way, the entire family is catered to and provided for by the hotel staff.

Overall, my recommendation is that when booking your hotel in Jamaica, you need to first analyze what type of vacation you would like, how much money you would like to spend and how much value for money spent you will receive.

In other words, do your research before booking and ensure you choose a hotel that caters to all your fun and comfort.

Why??
by: Roxanne

Good Morning Wellesley,
I question for is WHY? In 95% of the hotels, or resorts does not have a full body mirror or a sleeve to put you toiletry in the bathroom. I travel to Jamaica every three months and I am jet to be impressed with a simple thing as this.
