The hotel was clean. Rooms were older but nice. Anything we asked for we were given promptly. Nice tropical feel to the landscaping. Pool was cleaned daily. Breakfast is included. Toast, a muffin, and banana bread daily with juice and coffee/tea. Staff is great and will do all they can to help.

The Doctor's Cave Beach Hotel for its PRIME "hip strip" location is seriously lacking. The staff do an AMAZING job from the front desk to the bartender/breakfast server (I forgot his name), to the cleaning staff... The hotel is run by people with very warm personalities who truly take pride in being there. (From my observation) Now its the owners... More

The good--Location, pool, bar, price. The bad--very little parking--like 6 spots next to the hotel with no protection, only continental breakfast, Only some rooms have wifi but most don't--in common areas though, walls paper thin.There was a fridge in my room which was nice and also a flat screen TV. The room was fairly nice along with the bathroom. I... More

Most booking sites indicate "breakfast included", that should be "continental". The hotel seems to have rented out space for a food outlet, our experience was negative with this outlet. The hotel is in need of a wake up call. The location will never change, it is handy to the beach. Staff are pleasant, the bar tender excellent.

I stayed here for two night. The hotel is beautiful and well kept, with lovely staff. The gardens is exceptionally Exquisite for the hotel. The breakfast is on point. I'm sure if a little money was spent on updating and decorating the hotel rooms the hotel would be booming. And also providing dinner would also save guests a lot of... More

Great Location! Next to Doctors Cave Beach. I want to recommend and give a special thanks to the bartender in this hotel, (Kenny) he is an amazing person and someone you can really trust. He made my already beautiful trip to Jamaica so much better and more fun! Just go down to the bar, even if you don't stay at... More

We made a reservation but did not end up staying. However, we walked past it while on an excursion. It looks very run down from the outside and there are tons of people including sketchy looking people milling around outside. There was some confusion with the cancellation of our room and the staff was totally unaccomodating.

Dr. Caves Hotel is located in the heart of the tourist strip in Montego Bay. Though the hotel boasts the name of two local famous beach, there is no relationship between the two, as residents are still expected to pay upon entering the beach. The rooms are spacious but dated, though an attempt is made to distract visitors from this... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. Located on what is called the "hip strip" from days gone by. Situated right on the street so a bit loud. At first I thought hmmm, what am I doing here. Place needs some updating, rooms were clean and bright, yet bed was so uncomfortable and linens were horrible, unless you want to... More

It was okay for the price the breakfast could've been better the rooms are very old and we would do all incisive next time around. Tuesday's and Thursday's evenings you can drink rum punch and have a great time at the bar the pool was outside which is a nice was of cooling off when your too hot.
