If you needed a few good reasons to get away to Jamaica for Spring Break this year, we have them. From idyllic weather to activities for the whole family, it’s easy to see why Jamaica is a hot spot for Spring Break travel. Here are 8 reasons we think you should spend Spring Break in Jamaica:
With an average temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit and the lowest amount of rainfall all year, March and April are the perfect months to plan your escape from the winter blues that still plague much of the Northeast. U.S. News stated “Beachgoers travel to Jamaica’s shores at this time — particularly in late March for spring break — because the hurricane season is over and the temperatures are idyllic and breezy.
All of that amazing weather means that ample beach time is a must. Round Hill is perfectly situated on a calm bay, offering guests immediate access to the warm, turquoise Caribbean water from our private beach. Take out a pedal boat, snorkel the reef, go on a kayak excursion, or simply kick back with a Red Stripe and soak up the sun. Explore nearby beaches Doctor’s Cave and 7-Mile Beach in Negril.
Spring Break spelled backwards is “Relaxation”. Not really, but relaxation is the name of the game when you escape to Jamaica. Whether you get carried away in a good book as you sit and feel the breeze or take a cat nap in the shade, it would be hard not to relax in such a serene environment. Treat yourself to a well-deserved massage or experience the outdoor vichy shower treatment at the Spa at Round Hill. There are several spa treatments that will ensure pure relaxation is the number one priority during your stay with us.
4. Swim with the Dolphins
No matter if you’re 8 or 88, swimming with the dolphins is an experience you won’t soon forget. At Dolphin Cove in Negril, Jamaica, visitors have the opportunity to interact and swim with dolphins – enjoying the thrill and love of these amazing animals. Dolphin Cove is also unique in that these dolphins swim in the natural Caribbean Sea and are not confined to small tanks as other dolphinaria. Dolphin Cove is a great place to spend the day enjoying lots of fun activities. Entrance also includes interacting/snorkeling with stingrays, petting the camels and viewing their hilarious Shark Show.
No Spring Break in Jamaica would be complete without trying the mouthwatering regional cuisine. From jerk chicken to ackee and saltfish, you’re sure to find something you love. Wash it all down with a Red Stripe or some local Jamaican rum and life is good. At the Grill at Round Hill, you’ll experience local flavors handcrafted by an award-winning team of chefs, plus nightly entertainment and themed dinners. During your stay, you’ll enjoy casual beach barbecues, farm-to-table dinners (featuring ingredients from our on-site Organic Garden), curry night and Jamaica night – reserved for a celebration of Jamaican food and culture with the best of real Jamaican delicacies.

7. Island Time
