Jamaican hotels are always improving their offerings to ensure your stay in Jamaica is a memorable one. Swim-up rooms were once only available in some of the more luxury focussed adults-only resorts but now there are many other types offering this coveted accommodation enhancement. They have also changed the way we all see ground floor rooms.
Usually, they are the cheaper, less appealing rooms and not because they are less decorated or have fewer amenities, but simply because they are on the bottom floor and don’t really offer much of a view.
But now, seeing that swim-up suites are on the ground floor, that will make up for your loss of an expansive view. The pools are in most cases semi-private, meaning only the persons staying in those ground floor suites are allowed to use them.
Here are Jamaican hotels with swim-up rooms.
Sandals Resorts – Multiple Locations
You will be hard-pressed to find a new perk or added amenity that isn’t available on at least one Sandals resort property. In fact, they were the first hotel in the Caribbean to offer swim-up bars and accommodations with private pools. So naturally, swim-up rooms were the next step. They have in total 4 Jamaican hotels with swim-up rooms. They are:
