Best Value Hotels in Jamaica

View all Jamaica Hotels

At, value is the most important factor we consider when evaluating a hotel. After sleeping at 40 of the most popular hotels in Jamaica, we know the competition and can tell you which hotels really offer the most for your money.

  1. The Grand Palladium has 5 pools, large rooms, name-brand liquor, tasty breakfasts, mini-golf, and more -- all for lower rates than lesser-equipped all-inclusives.

  2. The lush, laid-back Rockhouse creates a holistic haven -- gourmet dining, morning yoga, cliffside loungers, a premium spa, and beautiful eco-appropriate design. But most astounding are the reasonable rates. (The slightly more chic Caves hotel can cost upwards of three times more.)

  3. The Negril Tree House Cottages has a prime spot on Seven Mile Beach, one of Jamaica's most popular, but it still offers uncrowded stretches of sand. For the location, you'd be hard-pressed to find a good hotel that's any cheaper. There's zero security after dark, and the rooms feature nothing but an old TV and a bar of soap. But most guests don't seem to care, once they're swinging on a porch hammock overlooking Jamaica's best beach. Plus, great bars and restaurants are right next door.

  4. Authentic Jamaican food, great cocktails, a friendly staff, and a beautiful, intimate setting bring guests back to the remote, beachfront Moxons year after year. This is definitely a no-frills kind of hotel -- threadbare rooms, a small pool, a tiny beach, slow service, no in-room phones, and no Internet -- but for most guests, the quiet isolation is all that matters.

  5. With just 30 hippy-chic cottages in secluded Treasure Beach, Jake's is a member of Island Outpost, Jamaica's trendiest hotel group. Guests come to unplug -- there's no phone, Internet, or TV in the cottages. The black-sand beaches aren't Jamaica's most impressive, but the Driftwood Spa, on-site painting and yoga classes, and excellent food make this a particular favorite.

  6. There's no pool, lobby, or dazzling features, but Catcha's quaint cliffside huts come with warm service, open-air showers, breathtaking sunsets, comfortable beds and simple homemade cuisine. You can eat one of the best breakfasts in Jamaica for free until 11 a.m. at Ivan's Bar.

  7. With modern features, professional service, and a huge on-site water park, this relaxed, beachside golf resort is more popular with sober families than rum-chugging partyers. Though the rooms are small, they feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, spa-quality bath products, great beds, and a powerful Wi-Fi signal -- all rare luxuries in Jamaica.
