Jamaica's Montego Bay is bathed in sunshine and blessed with average temperatures hovering around 80 degrees. The bay's colorful Hip Strip is often packed with tourists partying at late-night dance clubs, flashy casinos, and big-name resorts dotting the white shoreline. Though just 5 miles east of MoBay, Coyaba Beach Resort & Club provides a peaceful respite from the hectic tourist scene. At this family-owned, 4-acre resort, you can sip unlimited cocktails on a private beach while contemplating whether to sample the nightlife at Montego Bay.
On the resort's beach, you can get your feet wet with a range of watersports, including pedal boats and kayaks. Just steps away, Ocean deluxe rooms and garden junior suites both feature private balconies overlooking the ocean or garden. Suites are larger and include seating in the room. Every day at sunset, you can kick off the evening with a cocktail. Coyaba Beach Resort & Club's pool area buzzes on Saturdays for Native Night, when the hotel presents a hearty spread of local cuisine and the cheerful tunes of a live steel band. The resort's three eateries each have their own distinct personality. The Polo Grounds has a retro, speakeasy vibe; The Vineyard serves authentic Caribbean food; and Docks Bar and Grill faces scenic views of the ocean.
