Spent my last 5 days in Montego Bay Jamaica.

Checked in at The Wexford Hotel for a couple nights. The Wexford is located at the bottom of the Hip Strip, the lobby is really nice, and they have a cute bar with a great bartender named Rasta Rick. If you go there you have to get him to make you a Jamaican Shot, he lights it on fire, and …

Hayley ordered crab cakes also. For mains, Owen ordered cod curry with jasmine rice and Hayley got shredded rib ragu. We contemplated a second meal, but instead chose to go somewhere else for our second meal. ...

Special Moment for Two

... of the restaurant, but a third of the way into the meal, they started setting up these large tables for a French group who were really loud. So we ask if we could move to a table away from them and closer to the water (it had stopped raining and we had already asked if they could raise the curtains). We needed up at the same table where we had lunch. Our waiter was so apologetic for the noisy group even though it ...

... br> Dinner was at Eleanor's, and it was really good. We had the cutest waiter who was just beside himself that we were on a girls trip. After dessert (a special moment for two), we took wine out to the huge loungers by the firepit, drank laughed, Skyped with Sean and then went down to the water to dip our toes in. We first tried to go to the piano bar, but it was a really sad sing-a-long. Back to the room to go to ...

When we got to the airport it was lined up at Air Canada's counter. We were already checked in on the web and just wanting to drop bags. We were there an hour before the plane boarded but as the line was long and the machine wouldn't let her print her tags she had to go to a new ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Doctors Cave Beach Hotel Montego Bay

    Very clean room...Hotel does need updating

    from

    This was my second stay here, and as usual I had a very good time (I not only recommend it to my friends, I take them with me!!). If you're looking for a high-class resort, this is not it... but you're also not paying for a high-class resort either! I met people on this trip that have been returning to this hotel for the last 6 to 20 years!! I was a little disappointed that Kenny is no longer the bartender... but does fill in occassionally. Our room was kept very clean, and all hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. Brenda, at the front desk, was very nice, as well as Carlene (in the restaurant). The hotel does need some overall updating (our a/c worked... but looked like it had been in the room since 1970!) I would definitely stay here again, but I would like to see some updates to the property (which I left in my comments for the manager). Yes, generally the rooms around the pool are a little noisier, but there are plenty of rooms around the garden in which you don't hear a thing! Please e-mail me if you have any questions about the property (such as which rooms would be QUIETER if that is what you're looking for!) I'd be happy to give you any insight I have.

    Avoid id possible

    from

    From the indifferent staff to the blaring "hip hop" through the lobby and around the pool....the ants on the dirty bedroom floor was the last straw. A request to have the floor cleaned fell on deaf ears. I found it insulting to have $53usd billed to my credit card for the use of the room safe - then $50 credit given upon check out. No trust or respect ... or is that jsut Montego Bay? I won't be going back!!

    Make your own fun

    We had a wonderful time in Montego Bay area. The hotel staff were friendly and tried hard to accommodate their guests. Brenda and Artia were very, very nice and warm and worked hard to make all of us happy.

    Doctors Cave Beach Hotel

    from

    My family stayed at Doctors CaveBeach Hotel in September/October 2003- we had a fabulous time! The hotel was so unique-hand painted murals & wonderful outdoor areas. The food was by far the best in Mo Bay. The hotel staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had such a grand time that we keep in touch with the staff regularly & are currently workingon a quick trip to go see them. They are our new extended family!

    The Worst Place on Earth

    from

    It was my first trip to beautiful Jamaica and I made the stupid mistake of staying at this God awful place. I would not ever recommend it to any of my friends. The staff was horrible, the room was laughable and the food was anything short of edible. You would be better off sleeping on the beach. At least it would be clean.

    OK...but don't expect much

    from

    I travel occassionally to Jamaica on business and this means the odd night or 2 in MoBay before I have to drag myself to Kingston. I tried Doctors Cave in Oct 2003 because I wanted to be in town rather than being a single guy in an all inclusive couples resort outisde the city.

    My main comment is simply that you get hat you pay for. Dr's Cave is clean and cheap and that's about all to say for it. No beach access.

    The "world famous Dr's Cave Beach" across the road is overrated. I hardly saw anybody else at the hotel, so no atmosphere either....but I did enjoy being in MoBay and eating in Margaritaville

    It was cool

    doctors cave is perfect for the lone traveller prices are good ,staff friendly and the food at breakfast was really nice would stay again without a doubt margaret sharpe

    Nothing special

    from

    Stayed here for a week. The food was overpriced and the rooms weren't terribly clean, especially for the price. The front desk staff were a little rude, but the security guards were nice enough. Excellent location.

    Clean, Friendly & Reasonably Priced

    from

    A friend recommended the Doctors Cave Beach Hotel to me. Well once again my well-traveled friend came through for me. Doctors Cave was just what I was looking for which was a clean, casual hotel at a reasonable price. I wanted to do some exploring around the island, so an all-inclusive hotel package was not for me. The hotel is very centrally located in Montego Bay, which is a great base as many attractions are relatively close, Negril is to the West and Ocho Rios to the East. There are alot of shops, restaurants and nightlife within close walking distance. The hotel has personality! I found the staff to be extremely courteous and the facilities to adequate. The pool bar is a great place to work on the tan during the day and later in the evening offered some of the best music of the trip. The rooms are bright, clean and spacious. Doctors Cave Beach Hotel certainly met my needs and I?ll return.
