I visited Moon Palace hotel in Ocho Rios, Jamaica in October 2018 for my best friend’s wedding and it was a blast. Moon Palace is a beautiful all-inclusive hotel and was very nostalgic for me because I’ve been there several times as a child/teen (back then it was known as Jamaica Grande).
When I had some downtime from my maid of honor duties, I spent most of my time on the beach. The water was warm and peaceful. The orange chairs made the scenery great for photos. The people who worked there were attentive, always making sure I was hydrated.
Ky Tip: The Bob Marley’s are the best drinks this hotel has to offer (in my opinion). I want to go back just to have this drink.
There was a jerk hut on the beach as well, where you could order authentic jerk chicken and jerk pork as a snack. To be honest, the food at this resort wasn’t the greatest, but the jerk shack was so good.
I spent some time in the jacuzzi and pool with friends but not as much as I would’ve liked. The pool is extensive. Moon Palace also has a FlowRider, swimming with dolphins and a night club called Club Noir. Club Noir was pretty lit. They play great music but for the most part, it remained empty while we were there, which was kind of cool to have the whole club to ourselves.
The day before we left, we went on a yacht which took us to a beautiful part of the island where we could dive into the ocean from the boat. I jumped (with a life jacket) and it was so liberating. Jamaica is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND EVER! The captain played music for us and made sure we had a great time. Overall, I really enjoyed this hotel (minus the food) and I think you will too.
