Verney's Tropical Resort
Ranked #41 of 63 Hotels in Montego Bay
Reviewed October 4, 2006

Upon arrival to the Verney House Hotel, I was greeted with a warm welcom by the two owners! The hillside view from teh hotel is to die for. In the morning i enjoyed a delicious Jaimacan cuisine, while watchign a local soccer match. Unfortunately my husband was not too fond of the native cusisine, so they prepared an American breakfast for him. If you are looking for a quite, beautiful, and warm place to stay, Verneyb House Hotel is the place for you! I was told by the owner that the Hotel had been recently renovated, and I must say that the place looks fabulous! I hope that you all enjoy you stay as much as I did. Embrace all the beauty of the beautiful country, and its people!

Verney House Hotel or “Resort” is suitable for the native road warrior who is on a business day trip and wishes to pay local Jamaican hotel fees. Or it is meant for the grassroots, backpacking, environmentalist that does not mind if their bed sheets are not washed daily in order to conserve water.
The owners attempt to establish a “Mom and Pop” type atmosphere but at inflated four star hotel prices. The service staff is barely available except in the mornings when they curtly set your breakfast comprised of neo-authentic local cuisine in between trying to solicit you (for property, sight-tours, or other illicit things, etc). There are no real amenities other than a”swim at your own risk” pool that is truly at your own risk. (No lifeguard, no depth rope) and the aforementioned breakfast which is uninspired and below the local standard. The rooms are sub par not so much for the décor which is circa 1960 but because of the untidiness. The water pressure and temperature is poor, air conditioning is questionable, no mosquito or pests provisions, and as of this writing there were no working phones except in the front desk. At night most of the lights are turned off and returning to your room can be quite intimidating being that there is no real security system in place other than a single guard who rarely even notices your return after hours.
Overall if you’re a PHD student on a limited-to-no budget sabbatical or research trip looking for an anthropologically in-depth, no safety-net, no-frills, no perks venture into the non-scripted, flip-side of the Ministry of Tourism “Come to Jamaica” campaign then this is the experience for you.
One good note is that the hotel is located atop of a hill (a little removed from all the action) in a decent neighborhood which yields an expansive and beautiful view of downtown Montego Bay and the surrounding countryside.

At the time of this writing the proprietor has plans to “renovate” (i.e. painting) in the works for the near future.
