We thought we were booked to stay in the Caribbean main building and were alittle surprised and scared of what we would be staying in a couple buildings down. It is smaller indeed but was so adorable and nice. On one side of it is nothing but beach houses, so it is pretty quiet. It has been remodeled and was... More

So I'll start out by saying that I don't grade hotels on a curve, a curve being that it's in a great location. Reason is that I know where it's located before I short list my hotel options do it really has nothing to do with the hotel itself. That brings me to the Jamaican, now a part of the... More

We had such a wonderful time staying at the Jamaican this year. We can't say enough good things about this place. The view was amazing, the room was up to date, and the pool and the pool deck were perfect. No crowds, always able to get a chair no matter what time you came down, a few feet from the... More

I wasn't sure what the difference between ocean front and ocean view was so I called the company where I booked it and they explained it completely wrong. When I checked in, the front desk explained the difference and told me that I should of called them directly. They had no problem going above and beyond to make sure that... More

We arrived for our check in next door at the Caribbean. They were busy but friendly and quick. We got to our ocean front room and found it to be very stylish and pretty. Everything has been updated, very clean and nothing in the corners. We had a coffee pot, microwave and small refrigerator. The grounds were very clean and... More

We have stayed at the Jamaican Motor Inn many times over the past 20+ years. This is a small modest hotel in the style of the 50's or 60's right on the beach. It is sandwiched between the Sea Captain's Restaurant and private beach homes. There are only basically 4 floors of rooms that are on the small side. We... More
