Concierge.com's insider take:
In the grand scheme of Montego Bay hotels, Hilton's 489-room Rose Hall falls somewhere between the Ritz-Carlton's polished luxury and the area's behemoth all-inclusives. A $35-million-dollar face-lift in 2007 gave rooms a new look that's clean and tasteful, if not particularly Caribbean. They also added a giant water park with a 280-foot slide, swim-up bars, and faux Roman ruins. Most guests (especially those with kids) flock here, which means the the main cabana-lined pool and the narrow beach that fronts the hotel are nice and quiet.
