Jamaica provides no shortage of interesting sites to explore, especially if you're staying at a beachside property like this one. Jamaica Inn is one of the best lodgings in the area for visitors who prefer to stay active and try their hand at new activities.

Guests of Jamaica Inn will find one pool on the property. With so much to see and do in Jamaica, going to the pool may not be your top priority, but it might provide a convenient place to lounge until your next activity. Of course, these accommodations are also proudly located on the beach, so you'll find multiple ways to cool off in the sun throughout your time here. A long soak in the whirlpool on-location is another way to spend time in the water.

While there's no guarantee you won't overload on Jamaica's delicious cuisine, Jamaica Inn makes it easier to stay healthy; you'll find everything you need at their on-site exercise facility.


Even though Jamaica Inn doesn't feature a golf course, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The nearest golf course is Sandals Golf and Country Club, which you'll find within traveling distance of this accommodation. You'll find a total of 18 holes at this course. The course has a total length of 6311 yards, and it has been rated as a par 71. If you'd like more information or want to inquire about the possibility of reserving a tee time, you can reach the course at (876) 975-0119.

Family Activities

Because Jamaica Inn is for adult guests only, families who are bringing their kids to Jamaica will have to scratch this choice off their lists.

Kids and even adults will enjoy the game room.
