First off, in the description of this hotel, it says in big letters "Breakfast Included". If you think breakfast included means 2 pieces of toast, butter, jelly, a mini muffin and sunny d please tell me I'm going crazy. Im 15 years old, I need a hearty breakfast and im pretty sure 2 pieces of toast and mini muffin will... More

You pay $JA600 to get in which is quite high and the food/drink prices are very expensive so be warned....(although this is the same across most of MoBay) However, you will get a lovely strip of clean beach and very good service from the staff. You can hire chairs, inflatables, life jackets etc or just set up by yourself. It... More

Four of us were on the Carnaval Magic Cruise and decided to take our own shore excursion. The Tour people are pushy so make sure you don't get on a tour bus. We took a Taxi/van ($5 ea) to Doctor's Cave Beach. Guys were loitering out front but they were not inside. Paid $30 for entrance, 1 umbrella, and 2... More

They offer a complimentary simple light breakfast of Jamaican coffee and toast each morning but thee a two local well kept secrets you should know: 1. The guy that comes around selling fruit at breakfast... Take advantage of that. He's reasonable, saves you the hassle elsewhere and you can ask him for special requests. If it's in season he will...

The place needs to be upgraeded. The way I see it they are cheap they just want to make money without spending. Have to say though the front desk staff were the ones who made me stay, ashanna and odane the were so kind to me. I said to my self they need more people like these two to work... More

The room was big and clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great, near the airport and Doctor's Cave Beach Club. There are some restaurants and small markets in the region, and you can walk to Margaritaville. Don't miss the happy hour on tuesdays and saturdays with Kenny and free rum punch. I definatelly will stay there... More

They however stand by their staff, so not only did I loose my father, I ended... More

Landed in Montego Bay 22 May 2015 and had the misfortune of staying for 3 nights at Doctors Cave Beach Hotel. Travellers beware - you can do a lot better for less. This is one of the most basic hotels in Montego Bay, the irony is they charge almost as much as far better hotels in Kingston and the immediate... More
