Montego Bay has all the ingredients for a perfect romantic holiday. Jamaica's third-largest city sits on the northern coast and is beloved for its abundance of gifts—beautiful beaches, nightlife, adventure, golf and great restaurants, to name a few. The city also has some of the best all-inclusive resorts for couples in the country, and it's home to Jamaica's best honeymoon resorts.

But "MoBay," as it's affectionately called by the locals, isn't just full of resorts. The area is home to the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, stunning views at every turn, and one-of-a-kind, romantic restaurants like the Houseboat Grill and Sugar Mill. Adventure lovers will get their fill with ziplining, horseback riding, rafting down the Martha Brae River, visiting the luminous lagoon or exploring Green Grotto Caves. For those who can't get enough of the water, Doctor's Cave Beach awaits you, as does every water sport imaginable. As for nightlife, Montego Bay's Hip Strip, Gloucester Avenue, should have enough restaurants, bars and clubs to keep you in good trouble. Wondering where to stay? Here's a look at Montego Bay's best all-inclusive resorts for couples.

S Hotel Jamaica

The "S" may as well stand for sexy, as this elegant escape is so romantic it has three different packages for couples.

Your favorite spot is likely to be the rooftop, with its bar, lounge and pool, plus views of the legendary Doctor's Cave Beach.
