It’s hard to beat Holiday Inn SunSpree Resort’s location. Set on Jamaica’s northwestern coast just outside Montego Bay, the all-inclusive resort has its own half-mile stretch of Caribbean white-sand beach surrounded by tropical gardens. The hotel has become an even more attractive destination through recent renovations, which upgraded amenities in the guest rooms, enhanced pool areas, and added an open-air lobby that’s become a popular spot for sipping cocktails.
Guest rooms keep the scenery close by with private balconies and patios. Guests set up early at the hotel’s adult swimming pool, which features elaborate stone waterfalls and a swim-up bar. For a quieter scene, park a chair on the beach by the water’s edge and let the warm turquoise water lap up on your feet. You can also take advantage of the resort’s many complimentary activities. Rent a kayak or pedal boat to cruise the Caribbean, or strap on snorkeling gear and check out the colorful scene that lies beneath the surface. Four lighted tennis courts and nine holes of mini golf keep the action continuing on into the night.
The all-inclusive package includes all meals and drinks at the hotel’s five restaurants and lobby bar. De Terrace serves Jamaican dinner specialties in a dining room overlooking the water, and you can enjoy a casual beachside lunch at the gazebo-style Seabreeze restaurant.
Montego Bay, Jamaica: Coastal City with Tropical Jungles and Vibrant Markets
Situated on Jamaica's northwest coast, Montego Bay draws vacationers year-round with its temperate climate, clear waters, and postcard-perfect beaches. Just a short ways inland, freshwater rivers such as the Martha Brae cut through expanses of jungle and forested mountains, making for scenic rafting.
Years ago, Montego Bay was a thriving banana and sugar exporter. You'll find remnants of the city's past at Sam Sharpe Square, where cobblestone streets stretch past grand Georgian architecture and a cast-iron fountain donated by a former banana baron. The city’s dynamic "Hip Strip" buzzes with duty-free boutiques and lively flea markets hawking brightly colored textiles, carved wooden sculptures, and natural healing oils.
