S Hotel Jamaica

Montego Bay, Jamaica

The hotel

With its high-end design, jaw-droppingly gorgeous spa, 24-hour gym, and dazzling dining spots, this sophisticated hotel wouldn’t look out of place in one of the world’s cool cities (think Miami or LA) – of course, you won’t be disappointed to find yourself along Doctor’s Cave Beach instead. The incredible location on the palm-fringed sands mean you get stunning views from the rooftop Sky Deck – with its glass-enclosed pool, comfy cabanas, and Jamaican-tapas menu exclusively for those staying in the Sky Club Suites. If you’d rather be nearer the sands, S Hotel Montego Bay also comes with an equally enticing beachside pool with daybeds, a pool bar, and a trendy vibe.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the S Hotel on Jimmy Cliff Blvd, the saddest part it was only one night. Let me tell you from the gate, to the checking, to the room - first class, flawless are the words I would use.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the S Hotel on Jimmy Cliff Blvd, the saddest part it was only one night. Let me tell you from the gate, to the checking, to the room - first class, flawless are the words I would use. The Beach and pools. yes plural S has two pools one on the ground surrounded by cabanas and sunbrellas and the sky deck pool with its right angled plexi glass to view the bay from an aquarium point of view. Protocols were on point - stations were all over and you had temp checks to enter the facilities and beach. In all a great top o top experience and I recommend the S hotel for your stay in Montego Bay Read less

Overall, I enjoyed my trip I was able to fully relax! The GYM was a dream! Everyone was so nice. Was able to get to know Tony the lifeguard very nice to talk to!

Overall, I enjoyed my trip I was able to fully relax! The GYM was a dream! Everyone was so nice. Was able to get to know Tony the lifeguard very nice to talk to! Mufasa was also very nice and really positive and informative! The only thing that I was disappointed in was the Spa. Sad to say my massage was not good at all. My therapist didn't ask what I wanted / needed work on. The pressure was not consistent, and the strokes and movements were just bad and distracting. The spa pool room was also broken so we were not able to go sadly. The last day was the best day! We got great recommendations from the guys around the hotel for local restaurants. We went to peppa's which was really good! The S Hotel has a great system for taxi's. They have a partnership with drivers. They will organize taxi rides for you to get from place to place. I think they hooked us up with the best driver Al Dwane Birch (876) 479-3887. He took us to dinner and made sure to pick us up after we were done so we didn't have to find another ride. Then, after dinner he took us to this cool local beach area called Dead End. It was a lot of fun, getting to know other people and get a cold beer next to the beach! Dwane offered to take us to the airport the next day and also took us to spice world and KFC before we left. If you need a great driver who you can rely on Dwane is your guy! I wish we would have met him our first day so he could have been our driver the whole time and could have shown us some other great places. Read less

I stayed at the S Hotel for three nights, and to say that I am just enamored with the service and accommodations my husband and I received is an understatement. From before we even landed, to the moment we left, the S Hotel staff was amazing to us! Andres, Farrah, Monique, went above and beyond and I truly appreciate all of their help in making my hubby's birthday beautiful and making our stay comfortable. I am a NEAT freak so I am very picky and particular when it comes to hotel rooms, especially during travel. The S Hotel premises are so clean! The room, bathroom, pool, dining, lobby, beach, spa, everything is clean. The food is amazing, both breakfast and dinner. Drinks were great (shoutout to their amazing bartenders), music and vibe was always on point. To put it in simpler terms, whenever I return to Jamaica, I will be staying at this hotel & resort. Thank you S Hotel for a great stay! Read less

This is one of the few times where I have stayed at a hotel and the gorgeous photos matched what I saw when I arrived. Everything about booking and staying at the S hotel was seamless. The room was GORGEOUS and had a bathtub and a separate amazing multi-way shower. Random: this hotel as the quickest/quietest elevator I've ever been on I felt the COVID precautions were better in Jamaica than here in the states! The pool area was sanitized FREQUENTLY. Every chair, every surface that could possibly be sanitized. Thanks to Tony! The private beach area was very clean and they did temperature checks often. I would especially like to thank Andres (front desk) for going above and beyond to ensure a safe and enjoyable stay. Shelly-Ann, Tony (life-guard), Delroy, and Kimberlin (the names are not listed in a particular order) all provided 5-star service at all times for the entire duration of my stay. I have already told several friends and family members about my stay and suggested they stay as well. I'm not sure if the drivers Romaine and Aldwayne are hotel staff or hired drivers but they were excellent as well. The "s" in S Hotel must stand for superb. Please stay a boutique hotel!!! Read less

My stay at the S Hotel over this past weekend was everything and more even during this COVID time. My room was in top shape, very clean and with a spectacular view. The service at the hotel was stellar. I want to shout out front desk employee Zaria for her professionalism and great personality. I want to thank Amit, the hotel GM for making sure that my stay went smoothly and without a hitch. Amit was very professional and very pleasant. The staff did an amazing job, they were so friendly and very attentive to our every need. I couldn’t have asked for a better service. The food was great as well, very nice presentation! I will be back and I plan to spread the word to my friends and colleagues about the S Hotel because I can guarantee them that they will have as great of an experience like I had! 😁 Read less
