Resorts in Jamaica:
Get the Best Deal Available

There are tons of resorts in Jamaica to choose from - from a boutique hotel to one of the mega all inclusive resorts that line the beaches.



Which one you choose is, of course, a personal preference. There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of hotels (you can read my take on all inclusive Caribbean resorts here).

The first time we vacationed on the island, we ended up staying at one of the all inclusive resorts in Jamaica since we went with a large group.

The Starfish Trelawny Beach Resort to be exact. It is part of the Superclubs, Breezes, Grand Lido and Hedonism chain.

This resort is located in the Falmouth area on the north coast of Jamaica. It is about a 30 minute drive from Sangster International Airport. Since we were only there for 5 days, we didn't want to have a long drive to one of the other beach areas.

Everyone had a nice time at the Starfish. It is not a top end hotel and you pretty much get what you pay for. So go with realistic expectations and you should be fine.

The food was good, not great, and you had a few restaurants to choose from. There were lots of activities to keep you occupied if you wanted to be busy, including pool tables in the pool which is pretty unique.

The beach areas of Montego Bay, Ochos Rios and Negril have many more resorts in Jamaica to choose from than Falmouth. These 3 areas are the most popular vacation destinations in Jamaica and understandably so with their beautiful beaches and range of accommodations.

When we vacationed the last time, we ended up staying at a couple of the Sandals resorts in Jamaica - the all inclusive Sandals Grande Riviera Resort in Ocho Rios (formerly known as the Sandals Grande Ocho Rios) and Sandals Montego Bay.

They were much more upscale than the Starfish and we had a wonderful time. You can read our detailed review of this Sandals resort in Jamaica (Grande Riviera) here and our detailed review of Sandals Montego Bay Jamaica here.

I have read many reviews of resorts in Jamaica and in these popular beach areas in particular. It sure makes me want to go there and enjoy other areas of Jamaica. If you are heading to these spots, I have highlighted the top rated and reviewed hotels in each area. I'd be glad to go to any one of them! If you do go, please let us know how you made out. We would love to hear from you.
