Where to Stay in Kingston, Jamaica?
Finding a place of stay is definitely not a problem in Kingston. If you want to stay near the hustle and bustle of every day Jamaican life, find a place near Knutsford Boulevard. The Hilton Kingston Hotel and Jamaica Pegasus are two of the tallest hotels and are located right next to the main clubs. If you’re on a budget you may find the Knutsford Court Hotel has kinder prices! Just because it doesn’t cost you much doesn’t mean it leaves you with no amenities, this hotel offers a fitness room, game room, golf and is located in the heart of Kingston.
For a more quiet hotel you may want to book a room near the bottom of the Blue Mountains or over at the Courtleigh Hotel & Suites. They may look small from the outside but you’ll still find everything you need for a relaxing vacation. In fact, you’ll probably be so impressed that you reserve a room here for your next trip to Jamaica.
Strawberry Hill is one of the best hotels/resorts and is located in the mountains with a beautiful view of the island. The Strawberry Hill has 12 Georgia-style cottages that make the landscape picturesque. Imagine waking up to the beautiful scenery of the Blue Mountains and crystal clear waters – isn’t that what Jamaican vacations are all about? Included at this resort are mountain bikes for you to use, plus spa, yoga, swimming, walking tours, and other activities.
These aren’t the only hotels in the area; Sandhurst Hotel, Morgan’s Harbour Hotel, Sutton Place Hotel and the Mayfair Hotel are just a few others. Kingston has made sure there are plenty of places for you to stay from hotels to tent yards – if you do choose a tent yard however, make sure that it’s one that’s recommended through the tourist office as being “tourist friendly”. Jamaica is a wonderful country but you do need to be aware of personal safety when you are in insecure areas, and camping although on the increase, is something that’s not very common at the moment on the island.
