I found the staff to be quite short when asking for help or advice, my room smelled very musty and my shower was dripping water from the ceiling and a big paint chip fell from the ceiling as well. The sliding door was very hard to open and/or lock

Pro's :. Nice sized room, very clean, lots of towels and wash clothes, comfortable king size bed . Cons :. Adult section room, really close to the main road so road noise was an issue, air conditioner was real noisy, and lastly, the bathroom was so small 2 people would not fit in there !! It was tiny.

The connecting flight was missed. You only left 15 minutes to make the connection. Our plane was 3 minutes late. We had to run across the busy airport,catch the train and wait for it to make 5 stoops before it reached our stop. This was poor planning on Apple Vacations. We had to wait at the airport all day until another flight was available. Atlanta is a huge airport that is very busy. Even on the best circumstances, enough time was not provided to catch a connecting flight. We missed half a day of sunshine. Instead of arriving at 1:30, we arrived at the hotel after 10 that night. Needless to say, we were very disappointed! Please allow more time on connecting flights! We had been to this hotel twice already. It was wonderful!

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

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.

If you’re super picky this is not the place for you. Overall it is a nice hotel with a nice beaches. The staff are very friendly. There are some parts of the resort did do need a little updating. We very much enjoyed our stay here though. The red stripe and the jerk chicken are highlights.

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!

When you come in holiday you expected to have some sort of sleep but not at this resort, music play loud until 2 with over 50 DB. Complain to reception but them sad can not do anything about it. Also the condition of the hotel are really bad. I will never visit them.

Good Value with Beautiful Beach

This was our third time in Montego Bay, but the first time at this hotel.We paid about $3500 CDN (including taxes) for a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids. Kids under 12 are free which helps to make this hotel very affordable. ROOM: was ok...it's your standard hotel room, decor was a little bit dated but beds were comfy.Its true what the others say the air conditioners are loud, but you get used to it and for the kids it was good white noise to help them sleep. We found the shower takes a while to heat up maybe 5-10 minutes. No fully stocked fridges in the rooms like other all-inclusives (but we expected as much for the price we paid) RESTAURANTS - Buffet was only ok, you can definitely find something to eat but we've definitely experienced better.The buffet seemed on the smaller side of what we're used to.But they had a carving station and grill/stirfry station every night.Even for breakfast they had something new daily at the carving station.The good thing about this resort is you could book a la cartes every night if you wanted to and repeat at the same restaurant too. During our stay we went to Italian 3 times and the Seafood restaurant once. BEACH - This was the BEST PART OF HOTEL!!! Out of the other resorts we have visited in the area (Hilton and Iberostar Rose Hall Suites),this one had the best beach. It was nice and calm, not too deep so great for kids, the water was so clear, and great snorkelling for kids.Gave this resort 4* b/c of the beach and value for the money.

Great place overall

We recently stayed here for our Spring Break. The hotel rooms need a little work, but were just fine. We LOVED the Italian restaurant Sorrento. Our server Audley was fantastic and I highly recommend asking for him. The food was delicious as well. For breakfast the best secret is to go upstairs as there are less people and the staff are amazing. We absolutely loved our omelette guy Matthew. The manager there, Lincoln, was very friendly and great. The wait staff were sooo nice. The staff overall with the exception of one really unfriendly front desk lady were kind and welcoming. The island is a great place to chill and see some great snorkeling. I would go back for sure as I really enjoyed our experience.

2nd visit

This was our 2nd visit. It was another delightful visit. We stayed in building 7 with an ocean view and we were upgraded to junior suite. We dined at all places you could eat. We have no complaints about any of the food. The new option at the Jerk Hut with the after dark dining was great. Nice experience for a couple. The staff we interacted with were always courteous and kind and quite helpful if need be. It was good to Damion at the Port Royal. He is great bartender and someone I consider a friend. Another delightful staff member who works with food prep staff is Annagaye. I believe that is her name. Very warm and friendly and we look forward to seeing her our next visit.

Do NOT stay here

I couldn’t be more disappointed in my stay at the Holiday Inn Resort in Montego Bay. First, without my knowledge one of my rooms was canceled. I spent days of my vacation trying to get the room fixed. I was already out of the country so email was all I could do. Apparently the resort canceled the room and they were the only ones who could fix it. The refused to. I emailed IHG also who referred me back to the hotel who did nothing. Second, the floors, especially in the dining room were filthy and in my room there was dirt on the floor before I ever walked in it. Third, we were checked out of our room automagically so when we came back hot and sweaty from a tour, we walked all the way to our room and could not get in the door. We went back to guest services and they were less than helpful and sent us to another room and refused to answer any questions for us. They just looked at us like we were stupid. In the other room they gave us new room keys and sent us back on our way. We made the walk all the way back to our room and the door wouldn’t open, again. After kicking it several times it finally opened. Fourth, it’s now 5pm and our bed still isn’t made. Fifth, the buttons on the phone in the elevator are all ripped off and there is no phone to call the front desk for help with the issues. The only thing you can do it wait in line, AGAIN, when there is a problem. Sixth, the electrical outlet in one of the rooms didn’t work. We had to plug the coffee pot in at the bed. Seventh, the air conditioner in our room is so loud you can not sleep through it. The food was terrible. They made reservations at the restaurant for times we couldn’t make it so we were forced to eat at the disgusting buffet. They wouldn’t allow us to change the reservations for dinner. They offered us a different reservation at the EXACT SAME TIME. The ice machines were empty every single time I went to get a drink. The water pooled up in the shower like you were going to take a bath. There wasn’t ANY hot water. The rooms need updated horribly. You couldn’t watch TV because there were lines through the tv on every channel. This is not the kind of stay I have come to expect from IHG. I am so disappointed in this “Resort.”
