This is a relatively new hotel. Close to a busy road and tourist area which means plenty of traffic and noise at night. I was expecting a good wifi connection and this was not the case in my room. I informed the front desk twice and was reassured that someone will come and solve the problem. I checked out the... More

Friendly helpful staff, free wifi and good food. Location not to our taste as it is on a busy main road and the hip strip was not for us, also there was an all night open air disco right next door on one of the nights. The hotel is in need of updating and the rooms were shabby. In peak... More

This hotel has a good staff, friendly and helpful. The Pros : They do have wireless internet. The communication center has access to the computers and print outs are free. The Restaurant food is good, I ordered the club sandwich and it was real good. For breakfast they even obliged with a Jerk/Cajun Sausage instead of bacon. The reception area... More

This hotel was pretty nice. The rooms were clean and included a radio. AC actually worked very well. The location is fab since there is lots of food locations in walking distance and also the night life is great in that area. Very close by. The only thing I didn't enjoy was breakfast. They have 2 choices American breakfast or... More

During my last visits to Montego Bay, I've stayed either at a friend's place or another hotel on the strip. I wanted to try something new this trip; so I booked Altamont West Hotel. The location is great. The customer service is awesome. The interior design of the hotel is perfect for anyone who appreciates art and sculpture. Most of... More

We booked one night at Altamont West on very short notice. We arrived in Montego Bay at 12:30 in the afternoon, and after a 24 hour notice they arranged for a driver (Baba) to meet us. We even arrived early for check in and it was no problem. We found the Altamont to be clean and conveniently located on the... More

I've read many reviews saying that the Altamont West Hotel is like a motel....I'm in total disagreement. It's one of the cleaner and nicer 'non-all inclusive' hotels on the strip. It's nicely decorated and looks recently refurbished as the paint colours are nice and vibrant. This is my 4th time staying there and I'm never disappointed. I would definitely recommend... More

Just spending a night here, but the hotel was rated well and arrived with a pleasant attitude. The room was not ready, confusion over the advance payment for the reservations and even had to carry our luggage up to the lobby. ($160.00 per night.). They suggested that we have lunch while we wait for our room. Ordered a shrimp po-boy... More

This was a nice place to stay within walking distance to the beach as well as restaurants. We enjoyed the breakfast which was included with the price. The pool is small but nice. The hotel is located next to clubs but the walls were pretty well soundproofed so that sleeping was not a problem.
