Read on to learn about the best all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica and find out which is the one for you!

Sandals Royal Plantation (Ocho Rios)

The Sandals resort chain is one of the most renowned in Jamaica, offering an intimate, couples-only experience that can’t be beaten. 

Royal Plantation Entrance

Sandals Royal Plantation in particular is a highly coveted vacation spot. It’s in close proximity to Dunn’s River Falls, the most popular attraction on the whole island! It is also very close to Jamaica’s highest-rated attraction: the Ocho Rios Blue Hole.

In addition to the resort’s own amenities, guests also get free access to Sandals Ochi, another nearby resort in Ocho Rios that boasts an extra 16 restaurants and 11 bars! Paired with being close to Sandals Golf and Country Club, luxury is always at your fingertips.

Moon Palace Jamaica (Ocho Rios)

Shopping and sightseeing in Ocho Rios is a breeze when you stay at Moon Palace Jamaica. This all-inclusive resort is located near the heart of the town. It’s also very close to Ocho Rios Blue Hole, Dunn’s River Falls, and other iconic attractions.

One of Moon Palace Jamaica’s top in-house attractions is its Awe Spa, which is one of the largest spas on the island. It can hardly get more relaxing than here!

Moon Palace is also known for offering many special bundles and limited-time offers. It’s worth doing a bit of research before booking, because you may just be able to get a good deal!

Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall (Montego Bay)

Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall is an indulgent, adults-only resort located in Montego Bay. A standout feature of this resort is its proximity to some of Montego Bay’s world-class golf courses such as the White Witch and Cinnamon Hill courses.

Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall is one of two Hyatt resorts in Montego Bay; there’s also Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall. The latter is more geared towards families and has more in-house restaurants and attractions. 

The great thing is that guests at Hyatt Zilara have full access to the amenities at Hyatt Ziva! This is only one-way; Hyatt Zilara is solely open to people staying there, which preserves the romantic vibe.

Sandals Montego Bay (Montego Bay)

There’s never a dull moment at the adults-only, couples-only Sandals Montego Bay. As Sandals’ flagship resort, it offers one of the most expansive private beaches on the island and has a vibrant social scene.

Sandals Montego Bay is a great destination for weddings and honeymoons, thanks to its gorgeous over-water chapel and its luxurious honeymoon suites.

This Sandals resort offers free access to the more intimate Sandals Royal Caribbean — just a 5-minute drive away — which expands your options for things to do even further! Between the two resorts, you get to choose from 21 gourmet restaurants.

Half Moon (Montego Bay)

With so much competition, Half Moon can often go under the radar. It is, however, one of the top resorts in Montego Bay, and the highest-rated one in the Rose Hall district!

What sets Half Moon apart is its focus on wellness. This is best represented by its award-winning spa, the Fern Tree Spa, which is one of the largest on the island.

The resort boasts a plethora of other in-house attractions, such as its own equestrian center and golf course located on its 400-acre grounds.

The dining experience at Half Moon is also nothing to scoff at. One of its in-house restaurants, the Sugar Mill, was judged the best restaurant in Jamaica!

Sunset at the Palms (Negril)

If ultra-sleek, ultra-modern design just isn’t your style, Sunset at the Palms may be the breath of fresh air you desire. 

This resort places a lot of emphasis on nature and down-to-earth sensibilities. They do this without losing out on any of the luxury and comfort you’d expect from an adults-only resort!

The atmosphere of Sunset at the Palms is homely and romantic, making it a popular spot for weddings and honeymoons.

Two of the Sunset at the Palms’ distinct offerings are its treehouse-style rooms and its tropical garden spa.

Hideaway at Royalton Negril (Negril)

Sometimes classic is the way to go, and Hideaway at Royalton Negril is a perfect example of this. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? This resort gives a tried-and-true, all-inclusive experience that leaves you wanting nothing.

Hideaway at Royalton Negril offers 13 restaurants — all with unique locales and specialties — as well as 11 bars. The resort is also known for the range of activities it offers, as well as its in-house Royal Spa.

Fishing and boating enthusiasts will be happy to learn that Hideaway at Royalton is close to a popular marina, Stanley’s Deep Sea Fishing.

Beaches Negril (Negril)

Beaches, a resort chain under the Sandals brand, features the same level of luxury but instead for singles, families, and groups! These resorts are well-equipped to cater to all age groups, making them the top all-inclusive family resort chain in Jamaica.

The resort in Negril is especially remarkable, thanks to being located on Jamaica’s best beach: Seven Mile Beach.

Kids and teens especially love Beaches, thanks to its themed waterpark, Sesame Street activities, and exclusive teen hangouts.

Beaches Negril is also the first resort chain in the world to be certified autism-friendly (IBCCES Autism Certification), making it a wonderful choice for families with special needs kids and teens.

Jewel Paradise Cove (Runaway Bay)

Located smack dab between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay isn’t as on-the-map as its fellow north coast towns. This quietness is a large part of what makes it such a terrific vacation spot.

Runaway Bay’s top-rated all-inclusive resort is Jewel Paradise Cove. The relative seclusion and mystery of this adults-only resort only add to its charm.

Jewel Paradise Cove’s standout offering is Radiant Spa, an exquisitely expansive oceanfront spa that spans two floors. Not only do the massages and treatments refresh you — the view does too! Scuba diving, snorkeling, and golfing are also popular activities offered by this resort.

Sandals South Coast (Whitehouse)

If you’re looking for a vacation destination that’s off the beaten path, Jamaica’s south coast is the place to be. This area is rich in hidden gems of beaches and attractions that go unnoticed by the average traveler.

Sandals South Coast is in Whitehouse in the parish of St. Elizabeth and is not too far from Negril and Treasure Beach.

Located in a private, 500-acre nature reserve, Sandals South Coast gives you the best of both worlds: a luxurious, all-inclusive beach resort within the lush, untouched landscape of southern Jamaica.

Two things that make this resort special are its Over-The-Water bar and its expansive swimming pool — one of the largest in Jamaica!
