Many hotels operate on an all-inclusive basis, so you need never leave the hotel complex if all you wish to do is simply lounge in the sunshine, take advantage of food and drink on tap, and let the stresses of everyday life simply vanish.
There are many four- and five-star hotels, where excellent facilities, spa treatments, and world-class dining are offered amid spectacular and opulent beach-side surroundings. Mid-range accommodation and budget hotels can also be booked in Jamaica, though most holidaymakers prefer to splash out and spoil themselves during Caribbean breaks. Look out for well-known brands such as Sandals and sister company Beaches, Couples, Hilton, Iberostar, Ritz-Carlton and Riu.
Cheaper accommodation can be found in the capital of Kingston, while the beach resorts along the north, west and south west coasts are home to the most exclusive hotels. The areas around Montego Bay dance to a very groovy beat, so go for Negril or Ocho Rios if you prefer a quieter pace of life. Other peaceful northern resorts include Rose Hall, Runaway Bay, Discovery Bay and Falmouth.
In the south, which is a bit more wild and remote, you'll find resorts such as Treasure Beach and Whitehouse.
You can bag a hotel bargain in the summer months, between June and October, but be aware that July and August is hurricane season and rainfall is highest in summer.
