There is an excellent range of hotels to choose from including luxury resorts and trendy properties such as GoldenEye built by the novelist Ian Fleming as his Jamaican retreat, it is where he wrote all 14 James Bond novels. There is also a delightful string of off the beaten track boutique hotels for the more independent traveller.
The island is famed for its music with fans of Bob Marley and Reggae music making a beeline to the village of Nine Mile where Marley was born and is buried.
