Excellence Oyster bay

The Excellence Oyster Bay is set on a palm-fronted headland that pokes into the Caribbean Sea. As a result, more than 3km of ice-white sands are right on your doorstep. The hotel makes the most of this location, too, offering on-the-beach dining, sea-facing pools, and plenty of water sports.

All of the rooms here are suites, and they’re all set in a string of grand, Victorian-style houses. VIP treatments are on offer everywhere you look, including a high-end spa and waiters that brings drinks straight to your lounger.

For dining, you’ll also have the choice of nine restaurants, so you’ll never be short of a bite to eat.

Resort Summary

One of the main reasons Jamaica’s second largest city, Montego Bay, is so popular is the dream-worthy Caribbean beaches. Located on the north coast, it has many lovely beaches including the famous Doctor’s Cave Beach – originally owned by a doctor who believed the water here was therapeutic. He eventually gave the beach to the community who built a private member’s club there.

Because of the water’s supposed healing properties and the beach’s natural outstanding beauty – boasting a 200-metre long stretch of white sand – many hotels have sprung up nearby. The beach is part of the Montego Bay Marine Park, which is a protected area with coral reefs. The members club is open to non-members for a fee, so you can speak to them or your hotel about snorkelling gear. Another well-known public beach is Walter Fletcher Beach where you’ll find the Aquasol Theme Park.
