What to expect from hotels and resorts in Jamaica.
Its important to remember that every country has its own cultural ideas and standards which applies equally to accommodation. Jamaica is quite unique in that it has a little of everything for tourists when it comes to accommodation with many varied types and standards, so will suit a wide spectrum of visitors, rich or not - nature or party lover. We hope our site will help you avoid the all too common mistake of false expectations when booking your vacation, often caused by glossy pictures and fabulous descriptions enticing you to book. If your a global traveler and prefer top resorts in Seychelles, Indonesia and the likes, then your main choice in Jamaica would possibly be somewhere like Sandals. If however, your looking for something a little less luxurious and affordable and can live without the Butler service, the choice is immense. In general, like many less developed countries, some accommodation in Jamaica may seem a little 'tired' through lack of maintenance. Having said that, it may well be in the most wonderful location, of which there are plenty in Jamaica. Obviously Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril are the accommodation hot spots for tourism, but there are many hidden gems in the surrounding areas.
Also bear in mind, hotel and resort star ratings differ widely from country to country. A four star resort in Jamaica would struggle to achieve three stars in some other top resort countries.
Exclusive Travel give their own star rating for each place based not on what the glossy pages say, but upon the important things like value for money, amenities, service, location, and most importantly what guests themselves are saying about the accommodation.
NOTE: If you chose right, your in for a wonderful experience in Jamaica and it wont break your bank! So read our guest reviews and hotel details carefully and make the right decision.
