This hotel offers up cabin-style rooms surrounded by tropical gardens. And it’s just a short stroll from a white-sand beach.
This beachfront hotel’s got a great spot in serene Runaway Bay. It’s a short walk to the town’s restaurants and bars. And at the hotel, accommodation comes in the form of little wooden cottages.
There are sea views from the main pool and the waterfront Asian à la carte. Or you can get a prime shot of the ocean from the cocktail bar. Down at the beach, there’s a range of watersports, too.

2nd visit even better than the 1st time
just arrived back from our 2nd visit to this wonderful hotel. After a very long 10 hour very bumpy flight we arrived late to the hotel and were greeted by wonderful smiles at reception. We were booked into rooms 141 & 142 which was not were we had requested but they were cottages in the gardens which we did want. After eating a late dinner where a number of the resturant staff recongised us from before and made both us and our friends who had not been before very welcome. We went to bed fairly early - the rooms were newly decorated and did smell a little of paint however being very tired we all went to bed only to be woken a couple of hours later by a pack of dogs barking and howling which went on until the early hours - having called reception we were told they could not move us until the morning and to come to them at 8am. Both my husband and I ended up putting ear plugs in but even this did not stop the noise. Getting up the next morning thinking that a hot shower would wake me and help - no water at all in the bathroom!! I went with my friend upto reception and spoke to the reception manager - she was excellent and changed our rooms immediatly saying they were aware of the problem and it was dogs belonging to a house which borders onto the hotel. We were moved to rooms 86 & 87 which were beautiful. lovely big comfortable beds, very clean and tidy and thanks to June our cleaner it was that way every day. our friends were very impressed with the rooms and the gardens around them. Food - was plentiful and changed every night in the buffet restaurant the only issue we had were certain greedy americans and germans who insisted on piling up their plates and taking huge portions leaving nothing for others or making people wait for another serving to come out. The chefs and restaurant staff were brilliant special mention to David, Patrick, Leroy - our friends had birthdays whilst we were there and on those nights we visited the al a carte - I am allergic to seafood so it was a little hard for me to find something on the menu and both places as it was all mainly seafood with the only starter being shrimp soup but the food we chose was nice and plenty and service was excellent. They even baked cakes for us and sang happy birthday both times. The Jasmin Delta restaurant is down on the beach and doubles up in the day as a beach cafe which we visited most days - menu pizza, hotdog, burger and fries although they do have meat patties if you ask which are very nice. We got on great with the chef and converted him to cooking fried onions for our burgers and hot dogs so when he saw us coming he shot into the back to get more onions out. Service is good if slower but the view out over the sea is amazing (if visiting at night do spray mozzie spray can get eaten alive). the entertainment crewe work so hard all day and night and were they get their energy from I dont know but they are great and you dont have to join in unless you want to, special mention to Freestyle we are still doing the scooby doo dance!!! We did a couple of trips - 9 miles - Bob Marley which was just as good as the first time, also the rum tour - this is a long day but what a fantastic trip not only did we see how rum was made visit the waterfalls but we also chased crocs on the black river this was the only day we had rain but as they say in Jamaica liquid sunshine, we would highly recommend this trip but please be prepared for the long journey there and back. A big thank you to our rep Amerill who helped with the suprise cake for the birthdays and bookings for the trips. All in all another fantastic trip and I cannot wait to go back again. please dont look at the negative reviews - this is a lovely small hotel where you get to know everyone and they cannot do enough for you.More

Charming, fun resort with "local" vibes
This hotel is an affordable all-inclusive that's worth a stay for people not interested in multi-hundreds of dollars per person per night. Reviews were so mixed (many negative ) that I was skeptical about staying here. But my wife and I had an unequivocally lovely experience. The property is well-maintained with a nice swimming area, fun water activities (kayaks, scuba diving, a trampoline on the water), the bungalow-style room was very comfortable, the food was surprisingly good in the cafeteria with lots of fresh, varied options, and the staff were great (we were serenaded by some of the guys cleaning the beach of seaweed, who took a break to serenade my 2yo with a song)! My biggest complaint - getting through the gate (we drove), where they search for your name on a list (we did not make reservations). Check-in time is noon to get on the property, and 3pm to get your room (you can pay more for earlier access). Runaway Bay is a nice location about 1hr 15min from Montego Bay's airport, and not too far away from the attractions in Ocho Rios (and very close to the Green Grotto Caves - also worth a visit).More

This is truly an amazing hotel, From the moment we arrived at this hotel until the moment we left we had the most relaxing and fun time ever. The staff are excellent ,polite and very friendly from the bar staff, maids, gardeners, waiters ,chefs especially the animation crew who were always a joy to watch and listen to especial thanks to empress , colours , bird .Our room was of a cottage style and it was superb, cleaned daily with plenty of towels and very spacious, all the areas in the hotel are spotlessly clean and well maintained. The food is excellent with plenty of varieties well done Chef Capel, there are another two restaurants that are as equally good .My partner and I both agreed it is the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and we highly recommend this hotel. It is also safe to walk outside as we did frequently . Hope this helps you JamminMore

We had our first all inclusive at this resort. The food, staff and facilities were fantastic. A great mix of holiday makers and others groups (church, cricket team) made this a lovely, bustling environment. The cottages are well proportioned and kept beautifully, the grounds are well established with a wide variety of plants and foliage that attract birds and butterflies and insects. We loved it and can't wait to return. The entertainment was varied and inclusive, well done.More
