Is it time to book a vacation at a resort in the next few months? We all enjoy having a trip to look forward to, and knowing that in a short time we'll be sitting by the pool with a snack nearby is pretty sweet. What's even sweeter is knowing that we can often snag a great deal by staying at an all-inclusive resort.
Jamaica has many all-inclusives, and when we want to find the perfect one for our needs, we definitely need to look to Trip Advisor. Whether it's a family vibe that we're looking for or we want to know that we can expect incredible food, we want to know the ins and outs of each place before we put our money down.
These all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica have the best Trip Advisor reviews.
Sunscape Cove Montego Bay Is Perfect For Families
Sunscape Cove Montego Bay has a 4.0 rating on Trip Advisor out of 1,971 reviews. It's right on the beach and has 122 rooms. This resort is great because it's got a lot of things that kids will love. There's the Core Zone Teens Club, the Explorer's Club (which is for children), and also Pirate's Paradise Waterpark.
A woman who stayed here with her three kids (a two-month-old baby, six-year-old, and twelve-year-old) and husband wrote that it was definitely family-friendly. She said, "This is a great place for kids. The water park is fun and lots of activities. Room service is pretty fast." Another woman who came here on vacation with her granddaughter said how much they loved the waterpark. This isn't at every single all-inclusive resort, so it's an awesome perk.
Another reviewer noted that if you have a lot of kids, it would be absolutely perfect. They wrote, "This was my first time at an all-inclusive resort and it was a lot of fun. The food was good and so were the drinks! It was plenty of activities for children to do and I recommend it to anyone with a big family."
Something to note about this resort is there is a lot of Jamaican cuisine, which is something that another reviewer really liked. You can order jerk chicken, and at lunchtime, there are two stations set up offering pasta and sandwiches. That's perfect since you definitely want more casual food in the middle of the day. Many reviews say that there's variety in the food and definitely enough of it, and even a carved meat station.
Bahia Principe Luxury Runaway Bay Has Awesome People
Another all-inclusive resort in Jamaica with good reviews is Bahia Principe Luxury Runaway Bay, which has a 4.0 rating out of 4,479 reviews. Breakfast is available with the price of your stay here, a really nice feature. There are three pools, many places to play sports (a volleyball court, two tennis courts, and a gym), and a snack bar along with five restaurants and five bars.
The staff at this hotel are awesome, as we can see from this review: "Rooms were 100% maintained by an excellent staff and had one maintenance issue and resolved within 10 minutes." That is great to hear because nothing ruins a vacation faster than having something go wrong with your room and then not having them fix it, so it's good to hear that it was solved. Someone else shouted out the PR manager: "A special word of thanks to Gayon Robinson, public relations manager. She went over and above to ensure that we had a great time and that all our needs were met to the nth degree. Professional and courteous at all times; a real people person, and a real asset to the property."
People liked eating at Jasmin restaurant, which offers a buffet. No kids are allowed to eat here, which is good to note. Guests can also eat at the pool or by the ocean. Like the other resort in Jamaica mentioned above, this one also has jerk chicken. One former guest wrote on Trip Advisor that they ate jerk chicken along with many different sides while sitting at the pool during their trip, which sounds lovely.
If we're thinking about booking an all-inclusive in Jamaica, these two are really great ones to pick. One is more family-friendly than the other, but they both have good food, places to play sports or a waterpark, and they have each been the setting for many happy vacations over the past few years. And each resort has several positive Trip Advisor reviews that make trips here sound really awesome.
