My first time to Kingston was quite eye-opening. However, after leaving the airport and passing through the town, Altamont was a pretty nice and quiet oasis. We stayed here to attend a wedding to be held at the hotel. Everything ran smoothly and the complimentary breakfast was good. There were restaurants around the corner but we were advised to walk...

My friends and i stopped by Altamont Court for two nights and i was very dissapointed as it is not what it used to be. The beds need to be changed as well as the linen. The t.v kept giving problem, the food was not so good. I hope that they will not only upgrade the lobby area ( as... More

The location is away from the Kingston traffic but there is nothing to do while staying there. You need to bring your own entertainment or go on the street of Kingston to find something to do. Very good for business travel.

My husband and I stayed for two nights to begin a road trip across Jamaica's southern coast. Although I felt the hotel was a bit overpriced, it did include a fabulous traditional Jamaican breakfast. I was very pleased with most of the aspects of our stay. First of all, we felt 100% secure at all times. The property had a... More

I attended a two - day retreat from May 28 to 29, 2014 at this location. The food was neither appealing nor adequate. The coffee break was atrocious. The pastry tasted very artificial and stale. Some of the foods were salty and the rolls served with the soup were cold. Though fewer persons attended than the hotel was asked to... More

I attended a two day retreat here (28-29, May, 2014), at lunch I was one of the last person at lunch, by the time I got to the buffet line all the vegetables were finished, this is an important part of my meal, if I could not have it I decided I would go to the restaurant next door. However,... More

I recently stayed at the Altamont Court Hotel. What a huge disappointment. The pictures are exaggerated. The only accurate picture is the hotel sign. Breakfast was mediocre. Servings were stingy. The stewed chicken and dumplings were delicious however. Décor needs upgrading. This is more of a motel rather than hotel and extremely overpriced. Spanish Court Hotel is the place to... More

Having read some of the previous reviews I had to smile at some of the comments about the difficulties/deficiences people are reporting at the Altamont Court. We are a Canadian couple in our 60s who have been spending half of the year in Montego Bay for a number of years, so we're somewhat accustomed to the quirkiness of Jamaican life.... More

I just spent six days this past week (August 26-September 1, 2013) for my birthday and I must say that I was very disappointed. One would think that at $137 per night a hotel room that is called the Executive room would have the basic amenities, i.e., a clock radio, and a refrigerator. I found out on their website that...

We thank this guest for taking the time to report the anomalies described in letter. We are in the process of equipping all rooms with fridges but in the meantime have some on standby that we provide to satisfy any such request(s). The noise that the guest reports as coming from the in room refrigerator was actually that of a... More

I had a wedding ceremony and reception here and the staff really blew my mind away with their friendliness and accommodative spirit. I was not very decisive and this event was planned in a very short time but the execution of this day's events were almost perfect. Any issue I had was dealt with very quickly. Any issues my guests... More
