This hotel is directly across the street from the world famous Doctors Cave Beach so I was expecting a lot more. Room was pretty spacious but bla.. Not dirty but a little more attention to detail could have made a lot of difference. Place was dead day and night. Maybe it was because of my expectations from knowing of this...

Upon checking in at the hotel we were told they didn't have a reservation for us even though it was made, paid for & had a reservation number months in advance. After a while we were able to check in & Dwayne took us upstairs to our room. The garden below looked lovely but I was not so impressed with...

My wife and I, Canadians of Jamaican birth, stayed at Doctors Cave Beach Hotel over the Christmas period last year. We were very impressed with the management and staff of this hotel who constantly made sure we were enjoying our visit. The hotel offers good value for what we paid. We felt as though we were among family. We enjoyed...

I gave the hotel 3 stars because the employees were so nice and helpful. The rooms are ok. The pool is very small and gets very little sun due to the location. The beach is almost directly across the street; however it isn't associated with the hotel so you have to pay to access it. I only paid $10.00 per...

years ago, this was the place to stay in Montego Bay. No more! it's shabby, the staff is mostly surly, you have to pay to use the beach… It's a pity to see a once special boutique hotel turn into a place you cannot wait to leave. We would not go back, and neither would another guest we met who...

Located on the hip strip close to beaches and restaurants. Rooms are very basic with no internet access - WIFI only available in the lobby. No iron nor iron board was in the room, no kettle for hot water. I've only available from the bar. Pool uninviting - could do with a paint job, luckily good beaches are close by.

Stayed with my family for 7 nights for Christmas break. Room was small but clean, however, the shower didn't work properly. We did not get hot water for two mornings in a row. After we complained the first time, the staff told us that they would 'restart' the boiler. The TV remote broke 3 times and on the last night,...
