In Greenwood, on the border of St. James and Trelawny, hometown of the lightning Bolt himself, Mr. Usain, there sits a locus of peace, quiet, and relaxation. As you walk through the front door, the Royal Reef Hotel invites guests to put down their bags and leave their worries behind. Judith greets you with a wonderful smile and every detail...

There were only two dishes I could recommend in Jamaica: ice cream at the Devon House, in Kingston, and curried goat - wherever they prepare it well. I do love spicy food but it no longer agrees with me; consequently, most of the fare on the island is taboo for me. I am also allergic to Jamaica's 'Known Name' resorts....

I have recently stayed just after Xmas holidays at the newly renovated Royal Reef Hotel. The place is run by a lovely Italian guy and therefore he has opened in the hotel space a great Italian restaurant, named Corallo, partnering with a young chef from Milan. The food was delicious, well presented and very affordable and everyone was very helpful....

I have recently experienced the best Italian food I have ever had in Jamaica for sure, but also in any other restaurants around the world. The place is Corallo and it is the new restaurant opened in the recently refurbished Royal Reef Hotel on the beach in Montego Bay in Greenwood on the road to Ocho Rios. The food, well...

This place is a rundown old beach beach house that's hope to be a motel; If you going to Jamaica, get a Known name resort, like Hilton, Holiday INN and etc with all inclusive this may save you a lifetime regret or even save you life! This is my first review, I hope it helps

I would first like to say that the website does not match the hotel in any way at all! They had their cab service pick us up, which ended up costing us about 50, plus tip. We drove through a very poverty stricken area to get to this hotel..there is nothing even remotely warm or cozy about this area of...

My wife and I have visited quite a number of vacation spots all over the world, and are always looking to experience different adventures. On our most recent trip to Jamaica last December, we wanted to do just that. While we certainly have enjoyed staying at some of the larger all inclusive resorts in Jamaica, we wanted to try somewhere...

Don't be fooled by the reviews you may read about this hotel. I wouldn't say that the information provided by the hotel is a lie, but it is very much misrepresented. The hotel is in a very depressed area. It will cost you a minimum of $150.00 USD to go anywhere to do anything. There is a/c, but only in...

I have been traveling to Jamaica for eleven years and have stayed at many places - without a doubt, this is one of the best. I never stay at all-inclusive facilities but do not mind relaxing at a well managed, clean, comfortable establishment. This is it. The food is great and the staff are wonderful. It is about 20 kilometers...
