Jamaica is becoming a more affordable ‘bucket list’ holiday destination, with the news in the UK Budget about the price of flights reducing next year. All you will need now is somewhere fabulous to stay to suit your needs. Jamaican hotspots have been featured in many of the categories for both the 2013 and 2014 ‘Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Awards’, which could give you a head start in choosing from the huge amount of choice on the island. In case you’re wondering, Trip Advisor is the world’s largest travel website that helps people book trips based on millions of travellers unbiased reviews of the places they have travelled to, including accommodation, food and places to visit.
‘Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Awards’
TripAdvisor collated all the opinions and reviews that travellers have given about each destination and the amenities offered there, which puts them in order of ranking based on points. Each year the highest ranking entries are compiled into Top 10 and Top 25 Award Winners Lists which are published on their site. It is no surprise to me that Jamaican resorts featured favourably throughout the winners, with some resorts and areas being placed in multiple categories.
Here are the Travellers’ Choice Award Winners in Jamaica
Top 25 Hotels in the Caribbean 2014
Jamaica has really put its stamp on this category with four (4) winners placed in the 25 Top Hotels in the Caribbean, all of which are along the north coast.
Best 25 Beaches in the Caribbean 2014
The Caribbean has been blessed with a plethora of beautiful beaches, with powder white sand and turquoise water. Negril, on Jamaica’s most western coast has a famous stretch of sand that pleases the senses and was ranked in again, at 10 out of 25 entries.
Update as of 11th April 2014. Another category has been collated and the 2014 Winners announced…
Top 10 Destinations in the Caribbean 2014
Both Ocho Rios and Negril have been voted for by travellers and have even beaten their ranking from last year’s results. Well Done!
Top 10 World Hotels for Families 2013
If you are taking advantage of the cost savings on flights for families visiting Jamaica, family friendly accommodation is in order. Negril comes up trumps again for Jamaica, with this resort making it into the Top 10 Hotels in the World.
Top 25 Bargain Hotels in the Caribbean 2013
Budget travellers will be pleased to know they haven’t been left out, as a hotel in Negril has been awarded in the Top Bargain Hotels category.
Top 25 Small Hotels in the Caribbean 2013
Small boutique hotels are becoming popular as they tend to offer a more intimate setting, with elegant surroundings and are quieter than the mass appeal of the big hotel groups. Jamaica boasts a number of these establishments and has been awarded with four winners in this category. Negril on Jamaica’s West coast is once again featured, alongside Port Antonio which is on Jamaica’s East coast.
Top 25 All-Inclusive Hotels in the Caribbean 2013
When many people think of visiting paradise, it has to include staying in an all-Inclusive resort. These resorts feature heavily in Jamaica and although they are more pricey, the experience can make for an ‘all out’, or ‘once in a lifetime’ trip to be remembered for ever. Three resorts where featured in the Top 25 All-Inclusive Hotels in the Caribbean, spread along the west and north coasts of Jamaica.
Top 10 Destinations in the Caribbean 2013
With all the destinations in the Caribbean to choose from, it pleases me to announce that Jamaica has been featured twice in the Top 10 destinations in the Caribbean category. My home town of Ocho Rios and the top rated Negril are on the list.
Top 25 Beaches in the Caribbean 2013
Seven Mile Beach in Negril is a clear favourite in the Caribbean as it is featured in both the 2013 and 2014 Top Beach category.
Top 10 Landmarks in the Caribbean 2013
With all the Landmarks to visit in the Caribbean, Jamaica’s famous Rose Hall Great House came up in the Top 10 list last year.
