Royal-Decameron-Montego-Beach-Resort-

Though the entire island of Jamaica is beautiful, the north coast of the island is known especially so for its stunning white sand beaches tastefully lined with palm trees, shops and luxury resorts. It’s also known for its diving, snorkeling, nightlife and close proximity to golf courses and other fun island activities. Montego Bay, easily one of the most popular and well known parts of the north shore, is no exception. Here you’ll find pretty much everything you could seek in a Jamaican vacation.

Because of its popularity, numerous high class resorts have popped up over the years, including a few great all-inclusive options. To help you quickly sort through the maze of research and get on your way with planning your dream vacation, we’ve complied a list of the best of the best in each respected category, below.

What are all-inclusive resorts

When looking at various all-inclusive options you’ll find a general description of each, usually stating that a Caribbean all-inclusive resort is a resort that includes at least 3 meals a day as well as drinks (alcoholic and soft) within your nightly rate. Though this is true of each all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, some of them take things a step further and offer the inclusion of non-motorized water sports and other activities.

How to find the best all-inclusive resort for you

When looking at the resorts available in the Montego Bay area, it’s important to first understand what type of resort you’re looking for. Are you interested in one with a plethora of dining options, including those serving dishes from around the world? Or are you more concerned with the amount of kid friendly activities? Some others may be more interested in having as much of a private vacation as possible, one with a couple focused atmosphere. No matter what you’re searching for, having an understanding of what it is before you begin your search will greatly help you plan your ideal tropical escape.

Special Note: Although Montego Bay is considered a particular area, not all of the resorts listed below are right in the heart of Montego bay. Some are situated right outside and one even goes by the name of another area, which is common in Jamaica.
