The day we visited it was already 2 pm perhaps this is why the sand under my feet hit a cigarette butt or straw! We paid 5 to get in & 5 for a beach chair which was ok because the water was great - small reef to snorkel in great for beginners as it is within the swimming bouys.... More

The Hip Strip is an active locale in MoBay but as far as a good hotel goes there... forget it. I needed to be centrally located. I've stayed in at least 7 in the past, some no longer in business. So based on the recent reviews of Gloucetershire, Montego Bay Club, El Greco, The Wexford I decided to give Doctor's... More

If you have a room closer to the strip side, it will get noisy. Also, the room beside us got robbed, and we were on the far side of the hotel, away from the main entrance. The people just managed to unlock the door and take a bunch of wallets. Security is seriously lacking.

This hotel is not perfect (needs updating) but it had a very traditional Caribbean air to it. The colours were bright and cheery in the room (mine was yellow). The hotel is located a 5 minute walk to the Doctor's beach which is lovely. Food places are all nearby. There is no need for taxi or a car, everything is... More

The one night we stayed here was sleepless. There was LOUD road noise and drunk obnoxious people outside our room screaming and shouting until about 6:30am. The hotel knew about this weekly event yet and how loud it is, and could have suggested we stay on the other side (furthest from the street) - yet they failed to inform us.... More

Doctor’s Cave The best thing about Jamaica is the people hands down! Jamaica is rich in culture and beautiful people. My wife and I were welcomed by the warm staff at Doctors Cave on December 9th - 12th and December 17th-19th after we returned from Kingston. We felt at home and can’t wait to return. Kenny the bartender is EXCELLENT!!... More
