The all-inclusive boutique S Hotel Jamaica in Montego Bay and Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston have been recognised as the Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice 2023 award winners, announced on Thursday (May 25).
The coveted award presented by Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel guidance platform, celebrates businesses that have consistently received great traveller reviews on its platform over the last 12 months, placing these winners among the top 10 per cent of all listings on Tripadvisor globally.
S Hotel Jamaica was recognised in the ‘Best of the Best’ list among the top 25 all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean category. The Travelers’ Choice ‘Best of the Best’ is presented annually to businesses that consistently earn excellent reviews and are ranked in the top one per cent of properties worldwide.
“The Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Award is tremendous for not only S Hotel and our sister property Spanish Court Hotel but also for Jamaica,” said Ann Marie Goffe-Pryce, general manager of S Hotel Jamaica.
“We are also thrilled that S Hotel received the Best of the Best recognition and was included among the top 25 all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean, especially after our recent shift in becoming an all-inclusive property. While the hotels ranking among the top percentile is a testament to our warm hospitality, we share this award with our guests — we wouldn’t have won without their rave reviews and repeatedly sharing their wonderful experiences with potential guests,” Goffe-Pryce added.

“Congratulations to the 2023 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice winners,” said John Boris, chief growth officer at Tripadvisor.
“The travel resurgence we’ve seen throughout the past year has even further heightened the competition. Earning a Travelers’ Choice Award demonstrates that you have provided great experiences to those who matter most: your guests. With changing expectations, continued labor shortages, and rising costs, this is no easy feat, and I am continually impressed with the hospitality industry’s resilience and ability to adapt. Cheers to another successful year!”
