Iberostar opens first Jamaican property

Iberostar Hotels and Resorts has just opened its 100th hotel on the Caribbean island of Jamaica.  Jamaica is the third new destination for Iberostar this year whilst the new five star Jamaica property, the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Hotel, brings the total number of new openings so far this year to nine. 

The Iberostar Rose Hall Beach Hotel is also the first Iberostar hotel to feature an All-Ocean-View configuration, allowing guests to enjoy a sea view from virtually any point in the hotel. 

The luxury hotel, which is located directly on the beach, and just 20 km from Montego Bay Airport, has a colonial-style design and all 366 rooms have either a balcony or a terrace.

The hotel features 24 hour all inclusive service with all meals and drinks included in the hotel’s bars and restaurants - even soft drinks, beer, bottled water & mineral water from the mini-bar are complimentary.



Additional features include: three specialty restaurants serving Japanese, Cajun and Steak House cuisine; six bars - the lobby bar, cigar lounge, beach bar, music bar, swimming pool bar, and the theatre bar; two connected freshwater swimming pools, divided by a swim up bar with an infinity pool; a mini club for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years and a teenie club for children aged 13 to 17 years old.


The hotel is open year round and there are plenty of activities on offer from tennis and water polo to tropical dance and Spanish lessons. Guests will also have the opportunity to try a variety of motorised watersports, sailing, snorkelling, kayaking and windsurfing.  For those interested in scuba diving there is a CDC PADI Gold Palm Resort Dive Center on site.


Heike Genshow, Marketing Director for Iberostar Hotels & Resorts comments: “We are delighted to have reached our goal of opening 100 hotels by 2007, and to have ventured into three new destinations this year.  At Iberostar, we are committed to continually improving as a global brand, not only by opening new hotels in new destinations but also by refurbishing existing ones in order to maintain our high standards.  We have already invested €32 million in the refurbishment of its existing properties this year and aim to continue upgrading our hotels and seeking out new destinations as we move on into 2008.”


Iberostar has already opened nine new hotels in 2007 in Sardinia, Tunisia, Rhodes, Bulgaria, Turkey, Cuba, Mexico and Brazil, and will open its tenth in Bulgaria later this year.  Jamaica, Sardinia and Rhodes are all new destinations for Iberostar.
