The new all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica have something for everyone — from sprawling beachfront properties with water parks to intimate hideaways that are for adults only.

Here are the new all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica:

Riu Reggae

Riu Reggae is an all-inclusive, adults-only resort on the beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica.  The resort promises a non-stop party, with two infinity pools, two swim-up bars, 24-hour snacks, access to the nightclub at the neighboring Riu resort, and liquor dispensers in each guest room. For some down time, visit the spa or enjoy windsurfing right from the beach.

Royalton Blue Waters

Royalton is busy opening resorts in Jamaica – in addition to the pair opening in Negril, Royalton Blue Waters opened this November in Montego Bay. The resort is next to the existing Royalton White Sands, and features a kids club, an on-site splash pad with slides, a full-service spa and three pools. Royalton’s dining options stand out, including a steakhouse, a sushi bar, and a jerk hut. Upgrade to the Diamond Club for an exclusive lounge and beach area, butler service, and a pillow menu.

Opened March 2017

The all-inclusive Breathless Montego Bay opened in March with all of the trendy features we’ve come to expect from the brand: communal dining in the restaurants, treats like tapas and craft cocktails, and a rooftop pool and bar. The resort is for adults only, and also features swim-out suites, butler service, movies on the beach, and a protected swimming area that’s great for snorkeling.

Zoetry Montego Bay 

Zoetry Montego Bay Junior Suite
Junior suites at Zoetry Montego Bay feature one king-size or two double beds, a private balcony with Whirlpool, and either garden or ocean views.

Opened January 2017

Zoetry Montego Bay replaced Coyaba Beach Resort on the northwest coast of Jamaica. Zoetry resorts are best known for their focus on health and wellness, and this resort is no exception. Guests can enjoy organic dining options, premium bath amenities, yoga and meditation classes, and a dip in the resort’s lazy river. Splurge on a swim-out suite for access to a private pool.

Royalton Negril and Hideaway at Royalton Negril

Royalton Negril Seven Mile Beach
Royalton Negril and Hideaway at Royalton Negril are located on popular Seven Mile Beach, on the west end of Jamaica.

Opened April 2017

Visitors to Seven Mile Beach, Jamaica will have two new upscale options to choose from this year — Royalton Negril and adults-only Hideaway at Royalton Negril. This new pair of resorts feature swim-out suites, DreamBeds designed exclusively for Royalton, in-suite Jacuzzi tubs and stocked mini-bars. In addition to buffet and specialty restaurants, guests can enjoy a martini bar and a chef’s table dining experience.

Grand Lido Negril

The new clothing-optional Grand Lido Negril is actually a rebranding of the resort, which has been closed for about a year. The adults-only resort reopened in March 2017 with lots of premium features, including swim-out suites, a lively bar and grill, 24-hour room service, and an exclusive nude pool. Guests have access to all amenities at the new neighboring Royalton resorts as well, including great restaurants and The Royal Spa.

Melia Braco Village Jamaica

Melia Braco Village Pool

Opened January 2016

This new all-inclusive Melia Braco Village is located on a private beach in Trelawny, Jamaica and appeals to families with two pools, an extensive children’s club and five restaurants including a “jerk hut” at the beach bar and grill. What do we love most about this resort? Adults can also get some alone time by upgrading to The Level, featuring beachfront rooms, an exclusive pool and adults-only restaurant.

Sunscape Splash Montego Bay

Sunscape Splash Montego Bay Water Park
The resort’s pirate-themed water park features a lazy river, a full-size pirate ship with plank bridge, and water slides.

Opened December 2015

The former Sunset Beach Resort has been updated to an AMResorts property, meaning families can still splash in the extensive pirate-themed water park but also enjoy the brand’s unlimited-fun experience. Sunscape Splash Montego Bay features 24-hour access to food and beverage, 24-hour front desk service, endless domestic and international drinks from bars and lounges, all without wristbands or reservations. Upgrade to the Sun Club for access to an exclusive lounge, two restaurants, two bars, and upgraded room amenities.

Speaking of AMResorts’ upgraded Sun Club category, Sunscape Cove Montego Bay is the brand’s only all Sun Club resort. All guests enjoy extra perks like personalized check-in and checkout, two exclusive restaurants, treats for kids, and upgraded mini- bars that are refreshed daily. And since it’s located right next door to Sunscape Splash Montego Bay, guests have full access to the Pirate’s Paradise Waterpark with a full-size pirate ship, a lazy river and water slides.
