We stayed at the Holiday Inn Montego Bay in September 2020. If you are reading this later, keep in mind that we had a Covid-19 crisis. I have to admit, we're not resort people, but HI made our stay more than enjoyable during these crazy travel times. We got an insight into the service, how it works in normal times. It was fantastic! Despite the restrictions of Covid-19, we felt very comfortable and were treated like kings. Thanks to the team at the Holiday Inn in Montego Bay! PS: You should definitely try the food and cocktails at Jerk Hut. Annagay makes a delicious jerk sauce. Grettings to Annagay! Read less

I am writing this on Tripadvisor because Holiday Inn will not accept complaints on their own website. Another thing, I am my client's TRAVEL AGENT. They traveled from 7/30- 8/6. Yes, HI was following all Covid requirements BUT when my clients arrived, they put them in rooms on the third level, (no elevator) even know they saw and COMMENTED on my clients leg cast. There was only ONE restaurant open besides the grill at the pool the entire time...with very poor food choice options. All pools and few activities were closed down by 6pm. My clients said there were less than 75 people total at the resort so attending to these few guests should not have been a deal. They did NOT receive what they paid for and I would not recommend traveling now during this pandemic. Prices of vacations do not reflect how little you will be getting. Read less
