Based on actual guest reviews over the past year, we would give the Jamaica Palace Hotel a three star rating overall. While the bedrooms and marvelous views could be four stars. Its a great place for historians or anyone into the beauty of art. A bit like stepping back in time while having modern conveniences available and some wonderful scenic views thrown in. If your looking for a different hotel experience, surrounded by the old, new and scenery, the Jamaica Palace Hotel should be on your list of possibilities.
