For me, the place was ideal. The room was large with a mosquito net, kitchen area and fridge. The veranda had a hammock and breakfast table. The bathroom had a shower, toilet and sink area. The whole guest house is covered in mosquito netting and then open wooden slatting. There was a ceiling fan too which didnt do a lot... More

5 of us just returned from Negril after a week at Banana Shout. We rented the two cottages on the cliffs, which have a spectacular view of the ocean. This was my 5th stay there over a period of 30 years, so I have so many great memories of Banana Shout. Milo and his employees take such good care of... More

I have stayed at many places along the west end (the cliffs) of Negril and this is one of my very favorites. The management, security, and maid service is wonderful and they go out of their way to make sure your stay is excellent. Although each of the rooms have their own small kitchens, the community bar/kitchen is fully stocked... More

We stayed for 5 nights in one of the dolphin cottages overlooking the sea. Wow what a view over the cliffs into the ocean. Hammocks, fridge to chill your beers, space to do your own thing - yep absolutely. The staff were super friendly and Plug and Jahround went the extra mile to help remove sea urchin from my husbands... More

Banana shout is owned by my friend Milo. I've known him for years from traveling and staying on the West End of Negril. Milo is Italian but after living in Jamaica for forever he is a local and staple on the West End. The Italian hospitality over flows, with food, drink and laughter. The resort is a quaint boutique style... More

I and my husband returned, as promised, in early February for the Bob Marley Birthday Bash and had our usual outstanding time; we saw three pods of dolphins from our front porch, watched the hummingbirds and geckos, and had a blast at the BMBB! Laura and Milo are more like family than owners, and we love you guys! We wouldn't... More

My boyfriend and I visited Banana Shout for three nights in early February 2015, staying in the Tree House cottage - we were rounding off a two-week journey with a short stay at an expensive resort, and were really looking forward to all that Banana Shout would have to offer. We had a lovely time, and the setting sure is... More

Quite simply, Banana Shout is amazing! Milo and Laura ended up being more like old friends than hosts. From heading up the Western end of the island, to beaches with no one within miles, swimming in caves, to making cookies in the outdoor kitchen at night;-)...They're just good people and I can't say enough about them, Jah Rounde, and the...
