Toby's Resort
Ranked #27 of 63 Hotels in Montego Bay
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We just returned from a six night stay at Toby's resort in Montego Bay Jamaica. It is literally 5 minutes (if that) from the MBJ airport. It's located just to the west of the Airport. We stayed in a deluxe room. While the property and furnishings are a little dated, our room was clean, secure and the property very well kept up and maintained. We only ate a few meals there,
but no complaints. Toby's is a real gem. It's located right at the east end of the 'Hip Strip'. It sits next to the Sandals Carlisle and Beaches Montego Bay, and across the street from the Royal Decameron Resort. The staff there couldn't have been better as far as being helpful and friendly. I think that some people want to try and compare Toby's Resort to the full blown "All Inclusive" resorts, which would never be a fair comparison as they are two completely different types of lodging. The food and drink is ala carte at Tobys. Also the price point of Toby's vs the AI resorts is vastly different which makes comparison of the two unfair. Toby's is an excellent value for the money, and a clean, safe place to bring the family.
It does not have a beach on the property but is very close to Cornwall Beach and Doctors Cave Beach. Toby's is a locally owned Jamican resort as opposed to the foreign owned AI resorts, so I think it is a more authentic Jamaican experience. I like the AI's as well as the Toby's Resort type experience, it just depends on what you're looking for on a given trip.

Room Tip: Garden (Pool side) rooms are a plus, vs the street facing rooms. Better view and quieter.

What is special as a Jamaican staying at Toby Resort you feel like it's your own home. I recommend the hotel to all my friends local and overseas, in fact it was my best friend from Texas that insisted that I stay there and the rest is history.

When I call the front desk staff remembers my voice WOW!, I love it. My favourite outside of the service, food, staff and cleanliness is the beauty of the property for photographs.

That signature wall is the best.

Room Tip: King size bed and twin bed is perfect, ground floor room near the main lobby, restaurant and yes the...

We stayed two nights at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. Very nice atmosphere, cottage type houses and clean area. Very near to the airport and on a good road. I found this better than dr coves hotel at least by looking at dr coves from outside and the street on which it is.

The owner of Toby's resort is very friendly and is us educated, sensible and helpful.

Room Tip: If you are flying into montego bay before you drive out, I would recommend staying here and then get...

Location was great, had a wonderful time. The Staff is absolutely fabulous, and extremely helpful. Toby's was excellent, clean, safe, and was much more than we could have asked for. Totally worth every penny.

Room Tip: Free beach about two minutes away. Walk down to the pork pit for a great and inexpensive meal.

I stayedat Tobys Inn from Jan 14-18,2012.I was eager to return to Fl to write this review..
Who so ever picked the front desk staff,Did a mignty good job.Not to mention the housekeeper who cleaned Room 38 those days and Mr Kiddy who helped with my bags.
I ran into Mr Chin one day and He was just as friendly.
The location is great ,However the friendliness of the staff, Security officers, front desk, house keepers. was nothing but excellent.
Thank you Staff.
P.S. That King size bed is so comfortable I wanted to take it home with me.LOL

Room Tip: Please ask for rooms overlooking pool.
