Beach hotel on Montego Bay Hip Strip is just what the doctor ordered

The charming Doctors Cave Beach Hotel rests in the heart of Montego Bay's bustling tourism center.  Just steps away is famed Doctors Cave Beach, a breathtaking stretch of white sand and aqua blue water perfect for lounging, swimming and snorkeling. The AquaSol Theme Park, which offers thrilling aquatic attractions, go karts and live entertainment, also is nearby. This boutique hotel is within the city's popular "Hip Strip," home to gift shops and street vendors, mouthwatering restaurants and vibrant clubs blaring reggae music late into the night.

  • Steps from scenic Montego Bay beach
  • "Hip Strip" location within walking distance to shops, restaurants, clubs
  • Lush surroundings in tropical foliage

The nearby beach from which the Doctors Cave Beach Hotel gets its name is a popular gathering spot for relaxation and recreation.

The beach is part of the Montego Bay Marine Park, boasting coral reefs for snorkeling. A minimal entry fee includes use of showers and changing stations.

The Doctors Cave Beach Hotel's location amid Montego Bay "Hip strip" means endless opportunities for dining, shopping, and jammin' to live reggae.

Not so good

Upon arrival we asked for a ground floor room instead we were put on the 3rd floor with no elevator. The swimming pool was a little green, beds were two twins pushed together and very uncomfortable. Will not be staying there again.

All Inclusives – JUST SAY NO!!

Doctor’s Cave Beach hotel was ok for a quick trip to Montego Bay. Location is easy to find. It is right on the HIP strip and best of all right across the street from the Doctor’s Cave Beach – by far a top beach on our list and alone worth the visit to Montego Bay. The hotel is surrounded by a nice garden though our room had a street view – according to the bell hop; an ocean view – according to us! None the less, all was quiet most of the time. The room was a bit uncomfortable. If they would just upgrade the bed linens it would be much better. The bathroom was ok, but hot water was hard to come by. No refrigerator and the ice was far from the room. Our room had a very private balcony w/ seating. There is only WiFi in the hotel lobby/common areas; not in the rooms. The hotel has a cool looking bar and nice pool. Breakfast is light – toast and tea/coffee. All the staff was very nice though. A bit overpriced for the condition of the hotel rooms. As for Montego Bay – wouldn’t stay there again except that Doctor’s Cave Beach is so awesome! Next time would try another hotel. We stayed longer in Ocho Rios and loved it there!! Stayed at Condo’s at the Ridge / Mystic Ridge – best place we ever stayed at!

Doctor's Cave Beach is worth the visit! Beautiful sand and water. Reef easy to swim to for snorkeling. Excellent good priced drinks and food at the restaurant. $6 to enter.

2 stars for a reason

Good location, most pleasant staff, good size rooms, comfortable bedding, decent pool, nice bar. Breakfast was toast, a small tasty muffin, and good coffee. Fruit or juice would have been a pleasure. TV watching, smoking guests arguing through the paper thin adjoining door at 3 & 4 AM not appreciated. Grounds looked like they had once been beautiful. Our room needed a better renovation job in the bathroom, dishes and cutlery in the kitchenette, a heavier or blocked-in connecting door, and it would be a 3.5 star place. Got wifi in 2nd floor suite. First room had very noisy a/c and poor tv signal.

Eat at Biggs. Sit by the railing outside on a clear night and share a combo plate. All ribs - wet & dry. Yum.
