Great hotel with a wonderful staff. Marcella at the front desk gave us an enthusiastic Jamaican welcome. The hotel manager, Mr. Simpson, even helped with our bags. The hotel is conveniently located on the "Hip Strip", just steps away from Doctor's Cave Beach. The rooms were comfortable, with several gathering areas placed around the hotel, to socialize.

Doctor's cave hotel is really good for people who don't want to experience Jamaica in a resort and want to be in the middle of all the action as it is in a great location on the hip strip. The hotel is right across the street from Doctor's Cave beach, which is a public beach; however, you do need to...

Doctor's Cave Hotel is near the airport and at the beginning of the strip. Great place to stay one or two nights if you are in transit between flights or a cruise. We had a nice, recently refurbished pool room but the bar is also located by the pool which meant loud music until 11pm. Unfortunately there is also construction...

We were only stopping overnight at Montego Bay (thank god as the area wasn't very nice) and chose this because of the price and decent reviews. There are good and bad points to this hotel and it depends what is important to you. What we found was that hotels and costs generally in Jamaica were very high for British people,...

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon and stayed for a week. We loved it!!! Will definitely be coming back. We met a family that has came to this hotel for the past 20 years- that's saying something! Pros: -Right on the hip strip so it is close to food, stores, souvenir shops, etc. -Right across the street...

We stayed at Doctors Cave Beach only 2 days and we were very good. The hotel is basic but the staff was friendly and helpful. The direction organized for us the tour to Glistening Waters and it was perfect. Thank you for the organization. The breakfast is continental and very good. Easy walk to restaurants, supermarket and shops. Thank you...

Nice that they had a local fee if you have someone local with you. Layout is nice, with pool, hot tub, pool table, ping pong all is spread out. Nice pool bar and nice smaller pool right beside with rooms near. Could be updated but clean and has AC Also, across the street from Doctor's Cave beach

Although my 3rd floor room faced the road, the hotel is back from the road, so the noise was not a problem at night. Pleasant spot for breakfast next to the pool. My last night was a Tuesday which meant free rum punch at the bar ... great end to my vacation!

Our stay at Doctors Cave was great. We got a free upgrade when we arrived because our room was not ready. Friendly staff. Enjoyed the continental breakfast but could add local fruits. Room was clean. Not luxurious but worth the rate. Easy walk to restaurants, shops and clubs. Would stay again. Marlese.

This hotel was basic, but the Staff was friendly and helpful. They remembered our names and the young lady who served our breakfast remembered our preferences. Breakfast was banana bread and toast plus beverages and they don't serve any other meal. The bar opens at 3:00pm. I would return there because of atmosphere.
