My overall experience was great!!! The proximity to Doctor's Cave Beach was convenient also. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included with your choice of an American or Jamaican menu in addition to a beautiful view of the ocean!!! I would certainly recommend the El Greco Resort to my friends and family!!!

Great near-beach location

I've stayed at El Greco five times since 2006 when my Jamaican cousin selected this place to put up her weddings guests. It is my go-to hotel for Montego Bay. Quiet, clean, with large living rooms, a kitchenette with mini-fridge, and separate bedroom (with Queen bed). Located on a cliff above the Hip Strip, the beach is accessible via a short walk and quick elevator ride down. There's a swimming pool (that I've never used) and free wi-fi (worked well in the living room but not the bedroom). A la carte breakfast is included.

Party like a tourist at Margaritaville and fill up on some road-side pan chicken at the end of the night.

Jamaica getaway

The hotel was very outdated. They only offered A/C in the bedroom. The kitchen was not stocked and to rent a microwave cost $10 a day. The beds were old and the floors were dirty. They provided no paper towels, shampoo or any extras. Our room was right on the highway and the trucks woke us up all night. Staff at desk was unfriendly. No Elevators, you need to haul your luggage in the heat up 3 flights.

disappointed in value

I had received a cost of $310 plus taxes but ended up paying $287 at motel upon arrival and also $188 ahead for deposit. I understood that there would be probably 20% in taxes but was surprised to see over $150. Would appreciate explanation if available. I couldn't find what I had deposited while there and found it when I got home much to my dismay. The day we were to leave the breakfast took forever and we finally had to ask for a to-go box which didn't contain our correct order. Love the rooms and location but otherwise disappointed.

Good enough for a beach vacation

This was a one night stay to accommodate a beach visit before a flight the next day from the nearby airport. Front desk staff could use some training on welcoming guests appropriately. However, dining room staff was attentive and courteous. This is a "place to stay" type of hotel where you spend the night and it does that very well.

Fun Getaway

My family and I had a great experience at el greco. The staff was very friendly and quite helpful. The room was clean and comfortable to stay in. Breakfast at the restaurant was tasty. The view there was lovely because you can look out onto the sea. You area short elevator ride away from the hip strip and doctors cove beach (which you don't have to pay to access because it is included with your stay). You aren't very far from the airport (5 min drive) which is nice. The only thing I didn't like was that the pool wasn't as clean as I would have liked. There was some sort of growth along the interior side of it but that wasn't a big deal for us since we spent most of our time at the beach. Overall we would definitely stay there again.
