I had the privilege of staying and meeting the new owners of this soon-to-be upscale chic hotel. I've been traveling to JA for the past 20 years and have stayed in various hotels and this is the first time I've ever met the owners of the resort. It's a family run hotel who are in the midst of renovating the... More

This quiet 21 room hotel is the ideal get away for me the person who likes a little peace and tranquility without being too far out of reach. All in all Emerald Escape is one of Montego Bays best kept little secrets. Based on what they have now and what they are embarking on, as I was told by the... More

I went there in August of 2007 to my cousin's wedding and I can say it was average. I liked the rooms,the pool,the setting,but it is isolated.

This hotel is unbelievably bad. The pool is murky and gross. The hotel itself is miles from anywhere you want to be (nothing to walk to). The web site says they have cribs, but when we arrived and asked for one, the check-in person looked at us like we were crazy. The "restaurant" food is mediocre. Then, to top it... More

I would not recommend this resort. It is very inexpensive and basically, you get what you paid for. There are no vending machines but ther is a ice machine. If you are thirsty in the middle of the night, you are on your own. Another reason you are on your own is because the restaurant closes early and the bar... More

The perfect place for a small outdoor wedding ...beautiful view and nice dining room. As for the rooms...ours needed a little extra cleaning...which was done when I asked. The drapes, bedspreads and lamp shades were in desperate need of replacement. But in all our room wasn't that bad just needed updating. Dining was overpriced and very slow!!! Food wasn't bad,...

this place has so much potential, however my experience was quite different than the other visitor. My husband and I were also there in December. The view and seclusion is great. The rooms need a lot of updating and smelled like bubble gum cough syrup. There is nothing in walking distance of the hotel so when we went to eat... More

My wife and I just did a last-minute trip to Jamaica and stayed at the Emerald Escape Resort. We knew based on the prices that this wouldn't be a luxury hotel, but we had read a good review on this site so we thought it would be fine for a last-minute getaway. We knew as soon as I got home...
