Jamaica All Inclusive
...leave everything to your host and enjoy the rest.
Vacations sometimes need to be simple and challenge free. Going Jamaica all inclusive is delivering yourself into the hands of professionals and relaxing in an environment where everything is thought of for you and employees await your next whim.
Abe Issa, "...the father of Jamaican tourism", developed Negril Beach Village in 1976 on the concept of all inclusive and today it is the most notorious resort in the world, Hedonism, and has partied for over 25 years on the white sands of Negril. The company, now run by his son, boasts 12 all inclusive resorts, and is growing.
The Jamaica all inclusive experience can either be a base for exploration of the island, or as a retreat from all but the complete package of fun and rest without ever leaving the resort.
Jamaica all inclusive properties provide airport transfers, usually in passenger vans or small buses, for their customers. At the airport local baggage handlers will carry your bags to the resort bus for a $1 tip per bag. It is also acceptable and expected that you tip your bus driver upon arrival at the resort lobby.
The receptionist will greet you with a cool drink of rum or champagne and welcome you to Jamaica. Tipping is not expected inside the resort and visitors are able to enjoy unlimited food, drink, and activities without the hassle of carrying money around.
Off-site trips to visit outside the paradise of the resort are, of course, opportunities to contribute to the local economy through tipping and buying local crafts, woodcarvings, paintings and pottery from Jamaica’s talented artisans.
Water-sports on Jamaica’s north coast include sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, para-sailing, Jet Ski, banana boat, glass-bottomed boat, hydra biking, kayaking and river rafting. Any of these activities should be available from any of the resorts.
Certain off-site excursions are not included in your stay but can be arranged for you. On land tourists enjoy horseback riding, tennis, golf, mountain biking, hiking, shopping, and rock climbing.
Visitors to the Ocho Rios area can take day trips to Dunns River Falls, a stunning series of wide shallow falls over huge rock terraces. Rose Hall, the haunted Great House of an 18th century sugar plantation, sits above the northern stretch of beaches in the hills.
The Wyndham Rose Hall is a Jamaica all inclusive that offers a water-park complex with waterfalls, lazy river, swim up bar and giant water-slide. The resort welcomes children and families, has a golf course on the water’s edge, and offers twelve dining options of various styles.

At Couples Ocho Rios, located harbor front on a beach overlooking Tower Island and the boats passing through the busy port of Ocho Rios, the atmosphere is island glamor.
Tower Island is a tiny rock island owned by Couples where several gazebos with hanging chairs provide shade for nude sunbathers.
Another Jamaica all inclusive is Couples Negril, on the western tip of Jamaica, roughly an hour and a half’s drive from the airport in Montego Bay. It is considered by many to be the finest all inclusive resort in the Caribbean, has seen top ranking in Travel and Leisure’s Reader’s Poll World’s Best Awards.
