Montego Bay’s hospitality comes in many flavors; luxurious world class golf resorts, high-end villas, boutique properties, and quaint hillside accommodations. As a common thread, all have beautiful, intriguing views – of the sea, of a golf course, of flowering gardens, of action on the “Hip Strip”.
All-inclusive resorts offer multiple restaurants, unlimited drinks, and diverse entertainment, activities galore and other goodies wrapped in one package. Many like Coyaba Beach Resort & Club, Sandals Resorts, Sunset Beach Resort & Spa, Superclubs Breezes and Holiday Inn Sunspree are sprinkled along the beach.
The sporting life can be found at luxurious golf and tennis digs. With five championship courses in the area, Montego Bay may well indeed be the capital of golf in the Caribbean. Resorts where golfers can tee it up and indulge themselves in include Half Moon Golf, Tennis & Beach Club, Ritz Carlton Resort & Spa, Rose Hall Resort and Tryall Golf, Tennis & Beach Club.
Hotels lining Gloucester Avenue, the “Hip Strip”, the vortex around which Mobay’s tourism whirls, make access easy to where the action is. Altamont West Hotel, Coral Cliff Entertainment Resort, Doctors Cave Beach Hotel, The Gloucestershire Hotel and The Wexford Court Hotel are among good choices. These enchanting properties are the centre of dining and entertainment options on Gloucester Avenue and across from one of the nicest beaches on the island.
Only minutes away from the “Hip Strip” and airport are quaint inns and guesthouses like Hotel Glorianna & Spa. A Jamaican girl reared in poverty, had her dream become a reality when Hotel Gloriana & Spa opened its doors in 1994. The remarkable life story of hotel owner Eugennie Minto is told in the autobiography From Glory to Gloriana now also a motion picture.
Nearby is secluded Palm View Guesthouse & Conference Centre, set among tropical gardens. Luxurious villas also dot the area landscape like those west of Mobay proper at Round Hill Hotel & Villas, and Tryall.
