With its many room categories, massive villas (three to seven bedrooms), shopping village, hospital, school, dolphin attraction, golf course, and equestrian center, this seems more like a town than a mere resort. What started in 1954 as a group of private beach cottages offered for rent during off-season months has blossomed into one of Jamaica's biggest resorts. (Prince Harry stayed here during his 2012 royal tour.) Those beach cottages are still available, and because they are just steps from the sand as well as public areas, they remain a great choice. The resort is also home to the luxurious Fern Tree spa. Many rooms have been recently renovated, especially those on the West Cottage.
