Sunscape Cove Montego Bay

Montego Bay, Jamaica

The hotel

All the customary Caribbean luxuries come as standard here: squeaky soft white sands, impossibly blue sea, tropical gardens, and Jamaican entertainment. But Sunscape Cove has a few extra tricks up its short summery sleeves. Things like its setting, on a private peninsula wrapped by Montego Bay Marine Park, with its protected swimming spots and snorkelling. Promising ‘Unlimited-Fun®’ and an automatic ‘Sun Club’ upgrade, you get endless land and water activities, unlimited drinks, and 24-hour dining, all completely complimentary, and covered by eight eateries, seven bars and room service. You even get access-all-areas at Sunscape Splash next door, where pleasures include the incredible Pirate’s Paradise Waterpark. In fact, little VIPs are well-catered for at Sunscape Cove, with a science, nature and exploration themed Explorer’s Club, teens’ Core Zone, and in-room cartoons, milk and cookies all included.
