Near the entrance to Port Royal, this hotel plays up the region's swashbuckling past. It's a good location if you're flying in or out of Kingston's airport. The accommodations feature nice touches like mahogany four-poster beds and generously sized desks; some include private balconies overlooking the sea. Although the hotel is directly on the ocean, guests rely on the pool when they want to cool off. Another alternative is heading out to Lime Cay for a day of beach fun.
