“Great stay :)”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Stayed in the Spanish Court Hotel for 2 nights. Very stylish hotel, delicious food, rooms quite small with tiny windows but well decorated, nice pool area with a very friendly and chatty life guard, lovely spa (Marsha is a great masseuse), breakfast staff could be a bit more focused (was waiting for a cup of tea for about 10 min) but overall great stay :) I would definitely go back! :)

If you are on a business trip to Kingston, this is the place to stay. Safe, free breakfast and free wifi, very clean and great staff. Expect a business hotel and this is it.
It is not for families as the pool is very small and there is nothing within walking distance that would interest kids.

We stayed at Spanish Court Hotel for one night after arriving on a evening flight, check-in was swift and staff was very friendly. We received a complementary glass of champagne right away.
Our room was on the street side 2nd floor, for a moment i wondered if this would be a problem regarding noise, but it turned out to be just fine. Room size was perfect, so was the bathroom, and beds are comfortable.

We ate at the on-site restaurant, the food was good, not outstanding, but definitely not bad either. I was a little surprised about the limited amount of Jamaican style dishes on the menu, most of it was standard American/European fare. If we had stayed for longer, i would probably have ventured elsewhere for dinner. Breakfast is pretty standard with eggs, bacon and the works, plus some johnny cakes or dumplings, i found the bread + jam selection a bit disappointing.

The pool bar area is very nice and atmospheric, staff there was great too. The location of the hotel is also pretty good, as it is close to a lot of businesses and tourist attractions in Kingston, and right across the road from the British High Commission

All in all i would say it's best suited for a short holiday or city trip stay, and for business travellers, the service you get here is more personal than you get at the bigger chains in the area. Still all staff came across very professional, and the place feels very safe.

My husband and I stayed at Spanish Court about a week ago. Was a fabulous experience. The service was great, the food was the best I had the entire trip (you have to try the Ox Tail stew) and they even had a late night cafe open with delicious cakes and coffee (can't beat late night carrot cake). There's also a grocery store directly across the street with an ATM, food, pharmacy, beer/wine. AND - very conviently located (about a $3-$10 cab to Devon House, Red Bones, Bob Marley, etc.). Kingston doesn't get the credit it deserves - am already planning a return visit.

Also - if you have the chance, talk to the bartender, Mario (oh, the bar/pool on the top deck are great). He plays it cool but if you start a conversation (we shared a beer when his shift ended) he is absolutely hilarious! I think he should be a stand-up comic.

If you are looking for a clean, safe hotel for top dollar this is perfect for you. If you are looking for a sense that you are in Jamaica with the vibrancy and cultural mix that Kingston has to offer this is not for you.
As a regular business traveler to Kingston am always trying out different hotels. Spanish Court is the top end. A jamaican pastiche of the W hotel it sits in an ideal local in New Kingston. It's efficient and clean with uber security. Most travelers embrace the 'us and them' environment of the all inclusive, this hotel fosters that same energy. During my stay I didn't once see a brown skinned person in the dining room other than servers. Whereas in Pegasus/Wyndham/TerraNova I do tend to see many locals use the facility. Upon check in I was given a care package which was a lovely touch but it contained American goods like Harvest Crunch bar and Snickers. Why in a country that makes such wonderful hand made chocolates do they not showcase the riches that Jamaica has to offer. Personally, I felt very segregated in this hotel, but I am certain that this will be the hotels appeal for many travelers. Just not me personally.

I travelled to kingston for work and did so with a great deal of apprehension. Spanish court hotel offers a really nice atmosphere, it is secure (one of my big concerns) and the staff have such a great attitude. The food is excellent and plenty of variety on the menu. The fillet mignon steak was superb ... One of the best I've had!
The staff are obviously very well motivated and very helpful.
Honestly if you are travelling to kingston and have the chance to stay here you will not be disappointed!
