Stay at the Holiday Inn, Montego Bay
JEFFREY F.
Jan 12 2019
Overall the stay was nice. The bathroom could be updated, it was very small for 4. Not happy about having to pay additional money for special menus at restaurants. The staff needs to stir the drinks before they serve them, they do not supply stirrers or straws.

Holiday Inn Montego Bay is Perfect
ANDREA S.

We wanted an affordable New Years vacation for an 8 yr old, 21 yr old, 24yr old, and my husband & I. We have difficulty finding, affordable, family friendly vacations. The Holiday Inn, Montego Bay, had it all. In addition, clean rooms, friendly staff, and amazing entertainment. Most importantly the property was safe. Life Guards, and Security Guards are always near.

We love the Holiday Inn the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is always clean and the food is excellent. However, the buffet can have limited selections. But, there is no reason to hungry. There are plenty of alternatives and options. The spa is superb. My therapist was excellent and I scheduled an additional treatment because of her.

While it had been 6+ years since our last visit, we were welcomed to our Jamaican home away from home with amazing love and warmth. The resort management continues to fine tune the property and the results are great. We love the ever-smiling staff who make our stay wonderful. After staying at this property many times we know we can rely on a wonderful and relaxing visit.

Not all inclusive resort & Bad service
BARBARA W.
Oct 07 2017
I took my mother here to celebrate her 70th birthday. Holiday Inn resort made it a horrible experience. At check in the guest service rep was rude to my entire group of 10 people. She rolled here eyes, gave snippy remarks such as "like I said your room will not be ready till 3pm so go do something!" The lobby bartender lady was rude. I asked for a drink that included rum she asked me did I want rum in it I replied but of course. She slammed the drink on the corner the drink was poorly made you can clearly see the rum in the frozen drink. To make this more weird she demanded a tip. While waiting for our rooms we wait on the Amistar rep to tour us and tell us when our departure time will be for the shuttle. She never toured us, told us to come back the day before because she does not know when the shuttle would come to get us on the day of departure. We kept the do not disturb hanger on our door. To only come back to our room with the housekeeper inside cleaning. I explained we did not need service she told us well I am going to finish up here. Then stood by the door waiting for a tip! Finally my friends and I wanted to part take in the water sport paddle boating. Of course we did need help a little bit the life guard came to help. All is well until things was not going his way and he yelled at my friend and told her "GET THE FUCK OUT THE BOAT!" then flipped her foot out of the boat. To print off your boarding passes it cost 15.00 for 10 mins on the pc to print. Finally, not all the restaurants are all inclusive some is at a cost this is in addition to what you have already paid. The one restaurant Sea breeze was nice yet it was up charge (another additional fee) if you wanted steak. Overall I will not go back not all inclusive the staff was so rude on top demanded tips. It was a good trip to Jamaica if you just do not deal with none of the staff there or eat there. Just do not go to this one at all.

Never Stay there again

Our room was to be a Junior Suite. It was very small, couldn't move in the bathroom and no bathtub. No room service like I was promised. Elevator didn't work half the time, and construction on our floor the entire time. If we hadn't been out on excursions most of our trip, it would have been a disaster. Very disappointed in the hotel. Up charges for everything!

My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Sunspree for 10 days. We really enjoyed this property. It is a little dated and could use a remodel but is very clean and the views are amazing. We found the staff to be very helpful. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurants and the buffet. Our apple representative at the hotel, Chantelle, was very helpful and gave us great information about excursions.

Nice for budget minded people.
MICHAEL F.
Jun 08 2017
For a smaller resort it is very nice and clean. Very family friendly. We didn't have children with us, so the adult pool and section is very nice and away from the main pool activities and kid commotion. The little island of the beach was so enjoyable and the snorkeling around it was awesome. We never had a bad meal from any of the restaurants. For those who are budget minded, this is a nice place, but don't expect any frills. If there is are any drawbacks to this resort it would be that two of the four restaurants are not air conditioned and neither is the buffet, so if you like to get out of the heat to eat, sometimes it can be a little warm and humid during dining.

First trip to Jamaica
JeffP852, Peterborough, Canada
Tue Jan 15 12:53:36 EST 2019
My wife and I have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and this was our first trip to Jamaica. I read that people complain about the rooms, the food, the service but here is my honest review. The rooms yes were dated but very large and suit your purposes well. The bathroom is small but how big do you need to have a shower? There was always hot water and 2 days worth of towels. Food: Having travelled to Cuba, the Dominican, Mexico and St. Lucia I have encountered many buffets so having said that I loved this buffet for its simplicity. I feel like they took the best most popular items from all these different ones and put them all together. It's small but easy to find something good. Besides the buffet there was also The Jerk Hut located on the beach with the most amazing jerk chicken. Be careful of the jerk sauce which is very spicy. The Barefoot bar had hamburgers, hot dogs, fries and cumin crusted fish which was amazing. And located in the middle of these 2 is an icecream hut which also served nachos and cheese as well as chilli. Trust me you will not go hungry. Wait Staff/Bartender's: The great part about being at a smaller resort is that there are minimal wait times to get your drinks. Bartenders always seemed to be in a good mood although I got the impression that they didn't like filling up the big huge bubba's that people bring with them. The glasses they use are quite large compared to other places. Pool/Beach: This was the first time ever that my wife and I spent all our time at the beach instead of the pool. Not that there was anything wrong with the pool but when you see the crescent shaped island off the mainland you will understand why. It is a little piece of heaven. There is just enough shade if you need out of the sun and lots of room to move chairs around. The water is really shallow to get there. Probably waist high at most. Great for taking the kids over and not have to worry if its too deep. There are plenty of spots to snorkel at around the island. Overall I would highly recommend this resort. It checked a lot of boxes for me and my wife and we would come back in a heartbeat.

Great hotel to visit

My friend and I were there from dec 30 2018 to Jan 6 2019. We had a good time despite my friend falling and hurt her ankle. The people at the hotel were amazing. They helped me take her to the medical clinic and one of the people stay with us the whole time we were waiting. They let us use a wheelchair because my friend had a hair line fracture. I will definitely go back to this hotel. I think the guy who stayed with us him name was Trevor but not 100% sure it is I just heard the man who drove us called him. I think he said his name was Vince.

I would not recommend

The hotel is very pretty and the staff is great. However, they do not offer much when it comes to food. The good part is that there is a really great jerk restaurant about 5 minutes walking distance from the resort. There is also not much regarding night life going on. But, very pretty place.

One Night Inside Holiday Inn... Not For Me.. But Maybe For You...

So let me set the mood. I was supposed to be on a cruise ship with a bunch of friends but due to unforeseen circumstances I didn't get on the ship! I was devastated, but wasn't going to waste my days feeling FOMO. So I decided to take a last minute trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica! I looked at my options and pricing. I figured since I was coming in in the late evening, I would give this place a chance. I knew it wasn't going to be 5-star luxury or anywhere near it, but I figured if I enjoyed that evening then great I would stay, and if not I would spend the money on something else. You would think that if you paid 70% of the rate of a luxury resort you would get something decent. But my one night experience was not what I expected. I mean it wasn't bad, but it wasn't luxury. So with that said, I only stayed one night. Here is my summary: Food: OK. Room: Old and dated Service: Very friendly, but all of Jamaica is :) Beach: Nice, but a lot of kids...

Loved it! The resort is clean and family friendly. They were all kind and patient with my little girl who is autistic even on her difficult days and there were a couple of them because she had an ear infection. There is a nurse on the resort and a doctor was called to come and see her. There is a fee of course but that’s what travel health insurance is for. The wedding coordinator , Keisha, put together a dream vow renewal for me law clerk on short notice. She is a gem. Everything was perfect and so beautiful. It was also reasonably priced. If you are looking for a resort wedding there are three locations here. All are beautiful. I cannot say enough about the job that Keisha did. It was absolutely superb. There are three wedding locations at this resort. All are beautiful and romantic. I cannot say enough good things about the job that was done. The food at this resort is superb. If you can’t find something to eat that you like you must be very picky. My group have picky kids, a vegetarian, a person who avoids gluten, and two people with allergies and everyone managed to eat well. In fact I now need to hit the treadmill because I gained weight. The buffet is lovely and the restaurants are excellent. Tashalee at sea breeze really went the extra mile to ensure that my autistic child would eat by having someone get her pizza from the buffet. The spa is reasonably priced for a resort and the staff are wonderful. I took my daughter in more than once and the other little girls in the group had their hair braided. I plan to return next year.
