    Very clean room...Hotel does need updating


    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 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.

    The hotel does need some fixing up but its relatively clean. Some of the rooms are very small so call the hotel directly to make sure of what you are getting. I didn't see any bugs or things of that nature.

    Just don't get your expections too high ...just know that its a fairly clean bed for the night and you are pretty secure.

    The breakfast and dinner menu and quality needs great improvement too.

    I would not recommend eating at the hotel. Instead, go down the street to the Pelican restauranat for a traditional Jamaican breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The food, service, price there is excellent.

    Doctors Cave beach does charge for entry onto the beach. Its a small fee but its clean and more family oriented. No topless bathing there...

    couldn't the avoid the tan lines this time. Go to Negril too the water is beautiful.

    Doctors Cave Beach Hotel


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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.

    Doctor's Cave Beach Hotel: On the Main Drag


    Doctors Cave Beach Hotel is a great place to stay because

    it's on the "main drag" of Montego Bay.

    Most of the hotels, shops, restaurants, etc. are on this street. The Hotel has traditional rooms and

    suites in the front area, and in the back has rooms with a kitchenette.

    You'll find great ocean views in the front but in the back you'll have more privacy. A downside is that you have to walk across the street to get to the beach.You can't just walk out of the hotel and onto the beach, like you be able to do with the hotels that are right across the street. It's

    also a public beach, so all kinds of high brow and low brow people are there. This is a safe area, but out on the street,you will meet the usual locals who want to sell you something. I've stayed here about three out of the

    five times that I have been to Jamaica. It's reasonably priced, and close to everything. I don't recall there being an on site restaurant, but there's plenty of places to eat in the vincinity. A good one to check out is the Toby Inn. Get a local taxi driver to take you "out in the country." You will see the real Jamaica there. Stop in a shanty store out in the middle of no where, talk with the local country people, and have a Red Stripe beer (the true Jamaica beer), and soak up the lush surroundings. Then come back to Doctor's Cave Beach Hotel, relax on the balcony, and catch a view of a Jamaican sunset. What more could you want?

    Jamaica for Tom's Wedding

    A travel blog entry by jjmccarthy90 on Jun 20, 2015

    Nikki and I went to Jamacia for Tom's wedding with Jordyn. We stayed at the all inclusive hotel and Nikki got there one day before I did. We stayed through Monday morning and then headed to Chicago.

    We went in the ocean, pools and drank cocktails all day. Matt, Tom, Ryan and Ali were in the wedding.

    ... kind of sailing. A girl could get used to this. This particular type of downwind sailing is called running. When we arrived in MoBay we settled in for night and did a grocery run the next day in preparation for our three night sail to Providencia Columbia. To get a better angle on Providencia we moved over to Negril about 30 nautical miles west. The coastline of Negril was flanked ...

    ... Pixels,” is everywhere. I have never seen so many people made to look uncomfortable by photographers cajoling them into silly-looking poses in front of painted backdrops and silly characters blocking hallways, gangways and staircases on any ship; ever.

    Park West Gallery is here to sell their (in my opinion) bogus art at Live Champagne Auctions but at a lower profile than I have seen elsewhere where they still exist.

    ... she is going to be the butt of a number of jokes tonight. As for me I'm sticking with the bottled water.
    Getting back to the day: I went to a shop and bought duck shoes. Even though the sand in the water on the west side is fine for most people I found it bothering me when I went into the water. The duck shoes only cost a dollar or two more than home and there is no tax- so it was a no-brainer to buy them. The water was beautiful- I actually went ...
