Jamaica Inns

Jamaica inns and small hotels boast of their hospitality and special service. Each is unique, quite different in size, location, and ambience from the others, so Jamaica vacations become memorable not only for activities, but for the lodging as well. Unlike huge resorts that are often duplicated on other Caribbean islands, Jamaica inns deliberately provide privacy and unobtrusive service.

Some are set high on cliffs so the spectacular panorama of the coastline and the sea are dominant. Others are nestled among the lush foliage of small villages, so seclusion is the main attraction. The overriding purpose of the staff of all these singular accommodations is to make you feel welcome, and to make you comfortable.

Hospitable Jamaica Inns

The people who work at these inns take pride in knowing the local area--events, attractions, beaches. Like most people whose business is tourism, these people know the best deals on renting watersports equipment, the best tour guides, and the best restaurants, if you want to eat outside the inn. In Kingston, Mandeville, Negril, Montego Bay, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica inns use their small size to great advantage to appeal to those who travel to Jamaica for a special stay.

For truly unique lodging, seek out the unusual, such as a family-owned inn in a small fishing village on the south coast of Jamaica. Designed to appeal to artists, writers, and others who prefer non-tourist locales, this inn serves authentic spicy cuisine: ackee and saltfish, rice and peas, escovitch fish. In Negril, you can find a small hotel on the cliffs of Pristine Cove; it offers yoga classes, quiet spots, and services such as massages right in your room.
