What do you think of when you think of Jamaica? Dynamic culture, rich history, intoxicating music, vibrant food — for starters. That is all true. But Jamaica is also home to a very layered, diverse hospitality product, where hotels and resorts aren’t just places to stay; they’re stories in their own right. Whether you’re exploring the landscape of jerk in Port Antonio, diving into the universe of reggae in Kingston or navigating the cliffs of Negril, you’ll find truly special hotels in every destination in Jamaica, from the north coast to the south.

Here are our favorite places to stay in Jamaica for 2024: all-inclusive, boutique, independent or ultra-luxe, all set across this beautiful island.

#1 S Hotel Montego Bay  There’s only one all-inclusive resort on this list: the beautiful S Hotel Montego Bay, the “boutique” hotspot on Mobay’s Doctor’s Cave Beach that’s been reinventing the all-inclusive experience, both in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean. The 120-room retreat is filled with local touches, from the turntables in the rooms to some seriously good Jamaican fare. The Irie Spa is one of the best on the island.
