Jamaica Inn celebrates its 60th with another AAA Four Diamond ranking

Janet Silvera, Hospitality Jamaica Coordinator

On the night Jamaica Inn celebrated its jubilee, the Ocho Rios-based resort, once named among the Elegant Resorts of Jamaica, received another AAA Four Diamond ranking for guest services and physical attributes.

Sixty years strong, Jamaica Inn again joined the ranks of just 120 hotels and 63 restaurants that earned AAA's (the American Automobile Association) highest rating over the past year.

"This represents 0.3 per cent of the nearly 59,000 AAA-approved and diamond-ranked restaurants and hotels," said AAA in its letter to the hotel.

The travel company's rating system covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. The recognition was unveiled during what the hotel's general manager, Kyle Mais, tagged a momentous occasion, as the resort hosted an 007-styled James Bond cocktail on its West Roof.

The event, attended by a full house of guests, many of whom now call Jamaica Inn their home away from home, honoured and celebrated a number of "amazing guests" and staff, such as Teddy Tucker, who have dedicated their lives to the property.

Tucker has been with the resort for 60 years.

"We could not have done it without our incredible staff," Peter Morrow told the gathering, as he announced that the hotel's croquet lawn had been dedicated to the late Rupert Davis.
