  • If you want non-stop nightlife where you go to sleep when the sun rises … try Negril or the Hip Strip in Montego Bay.
  • If you want to walk to upscale shopping like Prada and Gucci … try staying at the former Ritz-Carlton or at Half Moon in Montego Bay where they have exclusive duty-free shopping on-site. We can always drive you to such places; but, if you want to be within walking distance, we can’t help with that one.
  • If you want to be neck to neck with other tourists, especially, cruise ship passengers … try staying city center in Montego Bay or Ocho Rios.
  • If you want to be seen or if you expect people to care that your shoes are Jimmy Choos and that your handbag is by Louis Vuitton … book a large resort where there will be enough people who could get close enough to you to see the logos. People who come to Discovery Bay aren’t looking to be recognized and aren’t people watching. We just don’t want you to be disappointed 🙂

  • If McDonald’s and Burger King are your top two favorite restaurants … There are no McDonald’s on the island any more. Fast food joints like Burger King are in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Kingston. Most guests enjoy home-cooked meals at their villa. The local restaurants, even those that would be the Jamaican version of fast food restaurants, serve food akin to home cooking.

  • If, in your heart, you want a to stay at a large resort, especially an all-inclusive resort … try Montego Bay, Negril or Ocho Rios. Discovery Bay is centered around private villas. The closest hotels are on the outskirts of Discovery Bay, less than 10 minutes in either direction – Braco or Falmouth to the west or Runaway Bay to the East.
