Whether it be asking for a custom sushi roll at the resort’s sushi bar or asking for that late-night pizza room service that you know you’ll crave, every single touchpoint was stellar.

In fact, one of the most memorable interactions we had with every staff member, was when we said thank you.

Every single employee would respond with a big smile and say “no problem”. Something that seemed reminiscent of the Jamaican culture and encompassed the easy-going nature of the land.

3: Delicious Cocktails for Every Craving

Not only could you effortlessly order a cocktail from the staff attendants that walk by, but you could also take a quick stroll to stretch and visit the Wet Bar Moon Palace Jamaica.

It offers a great view of the entire resort, a fully stocked bar with top-shelf spirits and of course allows you to cool down as you sit in the pool and order.

Perfect. You can totally do this.

Is paddleboarding more your thing? Great because you can do that too.

We totally suggest booking a sailboat session to truly appreciate the island’s beauty.

Do you prefer to stay on land for your entertainment activities? Don’t worry, you’re not left out of the fun.

One really fun activity to try out is called the Flow Rider.

The FlowRider Double Wave Simulator creates two lanes of perfect, endless waves. It offers a great surfing experience no matter your age or abilities. You could start on the bodyboard and as you get more confident and comfortable, switch to a standup board.

5: Spectacular Cuisines

Next on our list, we’re going to talk about the cuisines on this lovely beachfront property.

Seriously, we ate so much during our stay that all of our hard work at the gym kind of went out the window. We were here to enjoy and uncover the experience for our readers, so you’re welcome. As you could imagine, work was super hard during our stay.

You have over 7 dining choices to choose from not including room service. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of them.

Gourmet Corner

If you’re in a bit of a hurry and need to pick up a quick bite, then you’re going to want to explore the Gourmet Corner. It offers on-the-go guests a tempting variety of pizza, sushi and paninis so you can get back to vacationing.

The Boulangerie

Got a sweet tooth? Perfect because the Boulangerie is going to be your best friend. It offers guests fresh pastries, crepes, flavored coffees, ice-cream and hand-painted chocolates 24 hours a day. You’ll know where to find us for those late-night cravings.

Buccaneers Reef

The Buccaneers Reef is the main dining room that guests can visit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We’ve only visited this for breakfast and we were truly amazed at the assortment that was offered. Whether your craving an omelet, oatmeal or a classic eggs/potatoes breakfast, they had it all.


Need a break from the jerk chicken? Then you’re going to want to visit Momo. Momo offers the most innovative Asian cuisine in Jamaica.

Would you like fresh, elegant sushi, made to order by an experienced sushi chef? Or would you prefer the delicious fare and dramatic flair of a hibachi table?

We opted for the hibachi table that was a real delight. Not to mention, the food was delicious. It was fun and smiles around the restaurant’s tables could been seen from wall to wall.

For example, you could grab a couple of pieces of jerk chicken being made poolside.

Need something a bit more substantial?

Perfect – be sure to stop by a little place called The Snack Bar.

7: Top-notch Waterfront Dining

If you’re looking for one of the best beachfront resorts in Jamaica, chances are that you’re also going to need to experience waterfront dining, right?

Although we’ve already touched on some of the dining options above, we’ve held off on one special place called The Sundeck.

Wow. No other words could even begin to describe the picture-perfect views as we enjoyed our food.

If you do choose to dine here, then be sure to book a reservation during sunset.

Just don’t be surprised if no one at the table is talking. You will be so mesmerized by the views and delicious tasting food.

8: Daytime Entertainment

As we’ve hinted before, there are so many daytime activities to enjoy, but one of the best ones are the pool activities.

Oftentimes, when we cover various travel destinations, we’re given VIP press treatment, but sometimes we want to be with the people. After all, our readers are the everyday guy, right?

So, we decided to head to the main pool area and it was a ton of fun. There was music blasting, people dancing and of course various live-games happening which allowed us to meet some great fellow vacationers.

Be sure to give the games a try. You never know who you just might meet.

9: Nightlife Memories

This 5-star resort offers so many gems when it comes to nightlife.

One bar that is really great to visit is called the Loud Bar. It offers plush leather seating, plenty of tv’s to watch your favorite sports teams and multiple pool tables.

Feel like dancing into the wee hours?

Well, you must visit Club Noir.

Get ready for a great time. Club Noir offers a live Dj spinning to keep you dancing through the night.

Matched with friendly bartenders, premium drinks and cutting edge audio/lighting equipment this place stays “popping” all night long.

During our stay, we met a group of amazing travelers from Brazil and let’s just say that they knew how to party. Club Noir will always hold a special place in our hearts.

10: Elevated Bathroom Grooming Amenities

For those of you that have been following our grooming series, then you know just how important bathroom amenities are. Especially whilst on vacation.

One of the aspects of our trip that we really appreciated was the CHI bathroom products. From body lotion to shampoo and conditioner, these luxurious touches made our stay memorable.

11: Spaciousness of Room

There’s nothing worse than getting to your hotel room and feeling like you have no space to unwind. Especially, coming from New York City.

Lucky for us, our room has an ample amount of space to unwind in.

Officially called The Walk Out Suite, this suite was literally an oasis of comfort. It offers a private patio and spectactular ocean views.

Check out how large our entry was.

Pretty epic right?

There was plenty of space to hang our clothes, hide our luggage, layout our personal items and space to work if needed.

The bathrooms can also help make or break a vacation.

This Moon Palace Jamaica did not disappoint. We could sit here and tell you how amazing it is, but we’d rather show you. Check out our gorgeous bathroom here.

12: Ample Bar Stations

If there’s one thing that every luxury beachfront property needs to be a winner is to have an ample amount of bar stations available.

There’s nothing worse than getting to a destination where their promo photos show one thing and the real-life experience is completely different.

We visited this resort in September and it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. So, although we did have to imagine the property filled to capacity, we know that you could easily grab a cocktail in no time.

Whether that be at the martini bar, the wet bar, the outside bars, the lobby bar, or at any dining establishment, getting your perfect cocktail is a breeze.

13: Room Service

The room service provided was out of this world. Not only did the team somehow manage to tidy up our room every time we stepped out, but they also provided a soothing turndown service.

Turn down service is a service where your housekeeper comes in usually towards the evening time, to tidy up the room, turn on a lavender scent diffuser, fold down your blankets and truly make your room a relaxing oasis to come home to.

This service truly made each evening pure magic.

14: Location of Property

The location of the property was situated perfectly in Ochos Rios.

Should you want to escape the 5-star luxury resort to be amongst the people, you could easily do that.

We did manage to venture out and met a vivacious market place where we grabbed some memorabilia.

Of course, if you don’t feel like venturing off the property, you could also shop the resort’s upscale gift shop where did manage to scoop up a precious marble turtle statue.

15: Sunbathing Options

If you plan it just right, the chairs photographed here are the perfect place to watch the sunset.

16: Nightime Swimming

Do you prefer to take your swims at night?


The glow of the blue pools at night will illuminate as you go for your evening swim.

Now that we think about it, going for a great night swim and coming back to a newly cleaned room with dimmed lights totally helped us unwind.

17: Top-Notch Gym

If you’re like us, fitness plays a huge role in our vacation experience.

The Moon Palace Jamaica offers a stunning fitness center packed with top fitness gear, cardio machines and classes.

This way you won’t feel so guilty for all that food you’ll be enjoying.

18: Complimentary Spa Treatment

Do you enjoy pampering yourself during your vacation?

If you’re willing to peele yourself out of the oversized jacuzzi tub inside of your room then you’ll want to head to the Awe-Spa at Moon Palace Jamaica.

It’s one of the most relaxing places on the planet.

It’s one of the largest spas in the whole of Jamaica where expert hands ensure you relax, rejuvenate and reenergize.

Pro tip: Be sure to explore the spa’s hydrotherapy journey where you will get to experience a luxurious steam room, sauna, ice room and relax on stone chairs where you’ll definitely fall asleep with your mouth wide open.

Oh, did we mention that the fountains in the photo above are actually used as a massage mechanism that you stand under to relieve tension in your back?

Pretty damn neat.

19: The Scent Experience

Previously, we’ve visited another Palace Resorts property in Cancun and noticed that there was a scent the moment we walked in.

Well, this property did not disappoint. It’s a unique fragrance that you can actually take home with you too.

Just another small touch that enhances your experience.

20: Dolphin Experience

Although we did not have a chance to experience swimming with dolphins first hand, we did witness a few guests have a chance of a lifetime.
