Although Jamaica is the Caribbean island synonymous with Bob Marley, the resort is located on Cable Beach in Nassau, the Bahamas.
Singer and Rastafarian Bob Marley was born on February 6, 1945 and died May 11, 1981. His biggest hits include "No Woman, No Cry," One Love," "I Shot the Sheriff," and "Jamming." The hotel is owned by his survivors.
