Dreaming of warm sun on your face and sand between your toes? Explore Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay! This all-inclusive, beachfront property features beautiful, white sand beaches and great activities for kids of all ages too! We think mom and dad will appreciate that one of the two pools, with a swim-up bar, is for adults only. And while kids are enjoying the Kidspree Vacation Club, we suggest their parents try out the honey-ginger body scrub at Sol Mer Spa and Salon.

When it's time to eat, there's plenty to choose from at the six restaurants at this resort. For an elegant Italian meal, Sorrento is your place, or if it's pizza that's calling your name, the pizza buffet at Portside Buffet Restaurant is the place to be. If you want to really catch the Jamaican vibe, nothing beats dining at Sea Breeze, where the Caribbean fusion menu is served beachside, accompanied by soft breezes and murmuring waves. And introducing Kenko, a Japanese Restaurant featuring the Teppanyaki a la carte dining concept. Kenko provides full waiter service and an exquisitely full menu of unique Asian fare.

While in Montego Bay, don't miss the fabulous tours and attractions not too far from the resort. Dunn's River Falls is known worldwide as one of Jamaica's national treasures and is less than two hours away. This famous park has several options for enjoying the thundering falls, including scenic overlooks, hiking tours and a funky craft shop. Whether you go for the Standard All-Inclusive or the Superior All-Inclusive, we know you'll love the comfortable rooms and great deals.

    As allways a very great experience!

    We had booked a sea front room in bulding 1A, ground floor: the best possible room for us! 10 yards to the beach! We stayed from 8 to 22 March. So we landed with the virus at the back of our minds and came home with the last scheduled flight to England! So the atmosphere was not as relaxed as the year before, but the staff did everything in their power to smooth things out and made us feel as well as possible. The second week reality started catching up with us because of distancing in the dining areas, sanitisers been rolled out. But all this could not distract from the lovely beach, the nice food, and the friendly staff despite a lot of uncertainty about their livelihood and future. To help them feel less exposed, we did cut down to have our room cleaned only every 3 days, which was greatly appreciated. We feel extremely lucky and prvileged to have been able to fullfil our holiday in Jamaica. We surely hope to be able to stay again in the future.

    Went on a 7day vacation in late February with a co-worker, two females in their early 30’s. The resort is average, nothing over the top, except for the fact that it is located on the beach and the employees were wonderful. We only left the resort on two occasions and spent a lot of time at the lobby bar. The food wasn’t great, but it was what was expected for resort food. On the other hand, The Jerk Hut was good, try the pork! We had a nice view from our room, bed was comfy, but the bathroom was small. The entertainment didn’t thrill me, not a lot going on, but if you like to chat and can entertain yourself, get your monies worth at the bar.
