Great Budget Friendly All Inclusive Resort

Katie T on Dec 06, 2022

We spent 8 nights at the Holiday Inn Montego Bay Resort in November. We booked using IHG points for a standard king bed room with garden view. As diamond elite members, we were upgraded to an ocean view room on the top floor, which was larger than the rooms on other floors and included an additional living room space with a couch, coffee table, desk and mini fridge. Our room was located in building 6. Our diamond IHG status also got us upgraded gold wristbands to access the adults only RoseHall Club Lounge in the adults only building (building 7). The buildings and facilities are no frills and dated. However they get the job done for a budget resort. The air conditioning in our room did not go below 22° Celsius, even when set to the lowest 17° C. The sliding door to our balcony also did not close all the way at the top of the door, even when the door was shut and locked. The blackout curtains in the room weren’t large enough to fully cover the slider door windows, so sunlight did come in as the sun rose and into the morning. The hot water in the shower was iffy, sometimes it was very hot and other times there was no hot water. The employees were all great, from servers to bartenders and housekeeping to front desk! We did tip all service staff during our stay. I’m unsure if that made a difference in the quality of service we received, but most were very grateful for the tips. There were lots of bees during the day, by the pool and beach, as well as around the bars. There seem to be a lot of mosquitoes as well. I am prone to bug bites and left with 20+ bites. On their website, they advertise having paddle boats, kayaks, and snorkeling equipment for free to use. They did have 5 kayaks (3 two seaters and 2 one seaters), but did not have paddle boats or snorkel equipment to use. Snorkel equipment was for sale in the shop on site. Definitely bring your own snorkel equipment, as there’s quite a bit to see right in front of the resort, including lion fish, sting rays, puffer and blow fish, sea urchins and anemones and more! We spent most of our days on the beach in the adults only area, frequenting the Big Smaddy (adults only) Bar. In the late afternoon, we often visited the RoseHall Club Lounge for drinks and a snack. The RoseHall Club Lounge has higher end liquors and their own food menu. We enjoyed the Cobb salad, chicken wrap and chips with guacamole and salsa. For breakfast, your only option is the main buffet. They have hot and cold options and an omelette station. The buffet is all open air. The pre made items on the buffet were nothing special, but we enjoyed the omelettes. For lunch, they offer their buffet area, but note you must be completely dry to go in there. The Barefoot Bar and Grill by the main pool offers burgers, grilled cheese and fries. Jus Kiddin has a nacho bar, hot dogs and soft serve ice cream. The Jerk Hut has jerk chicken and jerk pork. For dinner, the main buffet is open which changes slightly what food they serve each night. They also have al a cart restaurants that you can make reservations for up to one day before. The Sorento restaurant serves Italian food and was our favorite. The beef filet and chicken parmesan were our favorite dishes. Sorento is the only included restaurant that has air conditioning. The Terrace serves Jamaican food and is open air. Sea Breeze serves seafood, though they do have one chicken dish on their menu, and this restaurant is also open air. Kenko is a Japanese hibachi restaurant which has a surcharge of $29 per person to dine here. The service here was slow – we had 7pm reservations and weren’t seated until 7:30. We didn’t get our appetizer sushi until 8:15 and the dinner went until 9:30. The food was far over cooked and overall not great, especially for the upcharge cost. Overall, for a budget all inclusive resort, the experience was good.

An amazing Jamaican Resort

768ginaf (Buffalo, New York) on Dec 03, 2022

What a wonderful 2 weeks in Paradise! The Holiday Inn Montego Bay Jamaica is an awesome resort if you're planning a trip to Jamaica. As soon as we arrived check in was very quick. The staff at the front desk and VIP room were amazing. Very friendly and very welcoming of us being there. Our room was ready upon arrival. Wayne, our Porter was a kind and so friendly person welcoming us there. He answered any questions we had and always had a smile on his face. Our room was perfect over looking the Ocean with a breathtaking view. It was very clean and comforting. The beds are so comfortable! The resort is absolutely beautiful! So much beachfront, no matter where you are there is beach access. The water is clean; not much seaweed and beautiful. One of the things that makes this beach amazing is its own little island that you just walk in the water to. The water is knee deep at the most. The island is beautiful and also a great place to snorkel. They also have a beautiful adult beach with an adult pool. The adult beach, the west beach, is a nice quiet place to just relax and enjoy either being in the water or laying out in a beautiful cabana. The main pool is very nice. You never have to worry about finding a lounge chair at any area of resort. In the center of the main pool is the entertainment stage. There is always some activity happening there. I'd like to give a shout out to activity director Noel for his kindness, fun activities and trying to teach me to dance! Also, Garth who is a lot if fun on stage along with the rest of the entertainment crew. Terry, who does a water aerobics class is the best and makes it so much fun! The restaurants are great. There's the main buffet that serves breakfast lunch and dinner with so many options at all meals nit to mention delicious. You have 4 specialty restaurants on site as well. The Seabreeze is located right on the east beach and has amazing food specializing in seafood. Karen, who manages The Seabreeze is a kind and very caring woman. She made sure we had everything we needed for dinner and more. Sorrento is the Italian restaurant that is upstairs from lobby and has delicious dishes to choose from. Kenko is the Japanese restaurant with not only great food but a great presentation by the chefs. Thank you to Chef Kirby for his amazing show while cooking our dinner. The Jamaican restaurant has great Jamaican food along with a beautiful setting looking over the Caribbean Ocean. You also have The Barefoot Grill by the pool that serves the best burgers, fries, cheeseburgers, grilled cheese and fish. The Jerk Hut is an amazing place to just relax at the bar and have some jerk chicken or pork. Delicious!! You also have a place on the water to get ice cream, nachos, and hot dogs. We frequented there a lot just for ice cream! Activities, you also have kayaks, pedal boats and a catamaran that is so much fun to go out in the ocean on. The staff there is so nice and always fun. I'd like to mention that while we on the little island one day that a special needs young man was in the water and his family was having a difficult time with him. One of the lifeguards took it upon himself and came out to the island and sat and talked with this young man for quite a long time. He was so kind and caring. He finally talked the young man into getting out of the water with his family. He went way beyond his duty and I thought he was an amazing person for doing such. The staff is incredibly friendly. Always a smile on their faces, saying hello when they walk by and always asking if there is anything you need. If there is anything you may need in your room that is not there simply ask your housekeepers or call the main desk. I promise you it will get taken care of. I'd like to thank our wonderful housekeeper LeKisha Wright in building 2 for taking such great care of us during our stay. I've seen some reviews that weren't so nice but you have to know that during Covid there was things the resort was unable to obtain, but it is back up and better than before! There is also a new manager who is the best around. Winsome Smith-Hooper you are the best manager any resort can have. She always knows what's going on and if there is a problem she will personally address it with you. I'd like to thank her for making my stay at The Holiday Inn the best ever!! I've already booked my next stay there while I was there. Also I've made so many new friends from all over the world that I can't wait to share my next vacation with. Give the Holiday Inn a try and I know you won't regret it. One Love ??????????
