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.

    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.

    Once You Go....You Know! Chapter 19.

    We returned home on February 29th, after spending three amazing weeks in paradise. We were fortunate to spend time with friends, that we met at this resort and who, like us, tried to make it back each year. We enjoyed meeting travellers from all over the Globe, hence the slogan for Jamaica this year 'The Heartbeat Of The World'. As this was our 19th visit, we've seen many changes over the years and the extensive renovations over this past year are outstanding. With tasteful and modern updates to rooms, grounds and common areas including the Jerk Hut, lamp posts, adult pool, bars, etc.etc. they have been busy and the renovations are Brilliant. Thankfully, the staff are the warmest and friendliest people who appreciate visitors as they strive to provide their true, Jamaican hospitality. This is such a welcoming Resort for everyone at every age, where you can indulge, unwind, and enjoy all it has to offer. This All-Inclusive Resort is a longtime world wide favourite and garners great reviews for it's stunning tropical settings and only 9 minutes from the airport. It has lush manicured gardens, impressive views and sunsets, gleaming golden sand, calm waters and an array of colourful sea life. YES! We talked to numerous travellers from around the world, thanks to ALL of you who stopped by The EMBASSY for a chat and a photo op. We thoroughly enjoyed the varied dining options, with 5 restaurants, all different and unique. From The Lounge in building 7 , it offers a quiet escape for food and drink. The now famous Jerk After Dark has people very excited. The Jerk Hut itself is transformed nightly into an experience not to be missed. Outside dining on the beach, truly magical. The Food and the presentation is magnificent. The entire staff were professional, friendly and top notch adding to this one of a kind dining experience. Our group had the steak, lobster, ribs, soup and delectable desserts. We all agreed the evening was fantastic. Another spectacular dining event was beyond our expectation. Valentines dinner on the beach, completely lit by mini-lights, giant lit up LOVE signs, red tall outdoor vases with flowers, and a great choice of music. Our waiter was a seasoned professional, the steak and lobster were great, dessert was excellent and the full package was unforgettable. We stayed in a spacious, beautiful, stylish and completely renovated suite with top notch service from all staff at all levels. Our Jacuzzi tub -WOW! At this Resort, you will find management mingling with guests to ensure that everything is just right. The staff shows dedication, passion, and commitment in their superior service as they work together to create an authentic and unforgettable vacation experience. This hotel is still The Best Bang For Your Buck. We thoroughly enjoyed our entire time we spent in this clean and safe environment that offers something for everyone. As soon as you check-in, you'll chill-out. Sending our sincere thanks and many blessings to the entire staff at the Holiday Inn Resort and the wonderful people of Jamaica. We would like to pass on our extreme gratitude to (one in a million) Winsome Hooper, (our honourable friend) Mr. Larry, (Mr. G.Q.) Devon Wilson, and the one and only, inspirational and supportive mentor who motivates his staff to be the BEST, an exceptional leader, who makes it ALL happen...the #1 G.M. Mr. Clark Lobban. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Your Jaaa-Cadian Ambassadors, A.K.A. The Embassy. Laurie & Dave, Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada.
