    We booked hotel and flights separately. Westjet has good fares to Montego Bay Intl. (MBJ), which is probably your best bet, but depends on where you're travelling from in Canada.

    I don't remember the rooms being pitch black. I agree with LsDano2 that if it's that critical to you then you should carry your own (to any hotel even if they do claim to have them). Good luck!
