Holiday Inn Jamaica

The widespread impact of the global pandemic caused by COVID-19, has created an unprecedented situation in the travel and tourism industry. As countries that comprise primary source markets for the Caribbean have closed their borders to protect their citizens, flights into Jamaica have come to a halt. In light of this, and in concert with global efforts to control the spread of COVID-19, The Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay will close till May 31, 2020.

Managing Director Kevin Hendrickson issued the following statement elaborating on the temporary closure. “Our dedicated team will be contacting all guests with existing reservations to alleviate any concerns they might have and assist with rescheduling plans for future dates of travel. Additionally, new reservations will not be accepted during the temporary period of closure. It is our intention to resume operations on June 1, 2020. However, as circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on global airlift remain beyond our control, we reserve the option to adjust our plans,” he said.

“Please keep yourself and your family safe. We look forward to welcoming you back ‘home’ to Jamaica just as soon as the time is right.”
