Iberostar Grand Rose Hall

Iberostar Grand Rose Hall


Why We Recommend This Resort:

Iberostar Grand Rose Hall is a very impressive 5-star, adults-only all-inclusive resort in Montego Bay, the most upscale of three adjacent Iberostar resorts.

A stay here allows full access to the facilities of these two other resorts – Iberostar Rose Hall Beach & Iberostar Selection Rose Hall Suites – but not vice versa, making the Grand Rose Hall feel extra exclusive.

The clientele here is also upmarket, and of varying ages, with many couples, and there is much less raucousness than at most of the other local all-inclusives.



How Are the Rooms & Suites?

Iberostar Grand Rose Hall has 293 spacious, nicely designed and nicely furnished suites, including swim-up suites. They all have balconies, patios or terraces and lounging areas.

Some of the balconies or terraces have sea views, and are nicely furnished with swing chairs, sofas, and coffee tables.

Mod-cons include coffee makers, satellite TV, generous free minibars, a pillow menu, and 24-hour room service.

All rooms and suites come with either one king-size bed or two queen-size beds.

The bathrooms are particularly nice across the board, and spacious. Decked out in marble, they have whirlpools, double sinks, double showers, and luxury toiletries.

You have the services of a butler throughout your stay. They can help you unpack, and customize your experience in things like your choice of pillows and your minibar stock.

They can also draw you a bath, recommend aromatherapy essences, and even shine your shoes.

What’s the Food Like at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall?

Iberostar Rose Hall has 7 quality restaurants, serving both buffet and a la carte, with reservations generally required in the evenings for the a la cartes. The food, and service here is a step above the other Iberostar Resorts, and most other resorts in Montego Bay for that matter.

The Surf and Turf Galleon serves charcoal-grilled meats and seafood. La Toscana has a range of well-known and not-so-well-known Tuscan and Italian dishes paired with fine wines.

Teppanyaki Kiniro serves Japanese and has a teppanyaki-tasting menu while Port Maria does a range of Jamaican classics such as jerk barbecue and coconut shrimp.

Then finally there is the gourmet showpiece Es Palau Restaurant which serves French haute cuisine.

Most of these venues are relaxed during the day but have an ‘evening casual’ dress code for dinner – generally meaning no tee-shirts or shorts.

The Cornwall is a buffet restaurant with great spreads for breakfast lunch and dinner.

There is no dress code there at any time, and so too at the Beach Grill, which serves hot dogs, fries, and burgers, as well as more healthy stuff – salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, etc.

As mentioned above guests at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall also have access to the many other restaurants of the two adjacent Iberostar all-inclusives, and there is 24-hour room service.


What Things Are There to Do at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall?

The nightlife within the confines of this Iberostar is the most low-key of the three adjacent resorts. There are bars here though, and they can be great fun.

These bars include a swim-up at their huge infinity pool and the 24-hour Aqua Lobby Bar. And, just to remind you, a stay at Iberostar Grand Rose Hall grants you free access to all three resorts.

Shared with the other two Iberostar resorts are the Hemingway Sports Bar, the classy Exodus Theater Bar, and a nightclub, The Mango Walk, which opens until about 3 am.

Iberostar Grand Rose Hall’s section of beach is beautiful and peaceful – one of the nicest beaches in Montego Bay.

Their main swimming pool, a gigantic infinity pool overlooking the beach, is also definitely one of the nicest pools in the area.

The modern spa facilities are also shared with the other two resorts and offer a range of wellness and beauty treatments.

They have whirlpools and hydrotherapy pools, a yoga, pilates, and spinning studio, a juice bar, and a well-equipped gym/fitness center next door.

Guests have at least one free round of golf at the nearby Cinnamon Hills Golf Course (one free round with a three or four-night stay, and two free rounds with a five-night stay.

All-inclusive water sports at Iberostar include windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling, with classes, if needed, included in all.

Motorized water sports and things like scuba diving and parasailing are also available for an extra fee.

Land sports include tennis, foosball, beach volleyball, ping pong, darts, and billiards.


Where is Iberostar Grand Rose Hall Located?

Iberostar Grand Rose Hall is the classiest, and most expensive, of the three Iberostar resorts that together form a kind of mega complex at Rose Hall, just a 15-minute drive from Montego Bay Airport.

Shuttle transfers can be arranged by the resort to and from the airport.


Some Guest Reviews:

“My husband and I had a 5 day stay here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. First off Malika our butler was superb! She ensured we where happy the entire stay. Her hospitality leaves me speechless! Bokeem, the bartender was extremely pleasant and ensured to provide us with top notch service. The resort offers a lot and the food was good. Nightly shows in the theater and then enjoying the DJ in the lobby afterwards and people watch was also entertaining. Highly recommend this spot!….”
