My boyfriend and I will be travelling to Jamaica for the first time in May. We are torn between the all inclusives in Ochos Rios/Montego Bay versus regular hotels. I found a couple nice places on airbnb at the Palmyra Apartments in Montego Bay. Is anyone familiar with these? Any thoughts? It does seem a bit out of the way, so we’d need a taxi often. Any recommendations, thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
My only comments is about budget and types of people you are. If you have a limited budget and like to drink / eat then go all inclusive. But if your more adventurous and want to see the island and do many more things don't do not require you to be entertained often then go villa / hotel. You can still do this quite cheaply however I suspect you will want to go out etc Expect dinners to cost about 50 usd with a couple of drinks at a restaurant but if your very creative you can get a great meal for 3.00 us and buy a couple of drinks for about 6.00. Quite honestly it is about the type of people you are.
