My partner and I recently visited Firefly and were very impressed. Staff is super friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the easy access to the beach made this vacation the best we've had. Thank you!!

My husband and I have visited Jamaica for 6 years now. We got married in Jamaica and have been loyal visitors ever sense. Seeing that we always stayed on the cliff side of the island, we wanted to experience a beachside resort. We decided to try Firefly Resort based on the fact that Andrea (manager of Catcha Falling Star) recently... More

My husband and I stayed in the Alpine Cottage for six nights recently. The cottage was very cozy and absolutely perfect for us. Some may consider the cottage "roughing it", especially since the only hot water was in the shower (there was a demand water heater located there), and some may prefer the all-inclusive bigger resorts. But we would highly... More

I had some fears that the new owners of Firefly would try to change the feel of the place and make it a more commercial property. So far this hasn't happened, and the small romantic feel of the place is still there. The staff is welcoming and competent. The housekeeping staff is still there and as wonderful and trustworthy as... More

My husband and I recently returned to Firefly Beach for another 10 day stay. The facility is clean, the staff very friendly and they want to ensure your stay is pleasant. Housekeeping was there every day with a smile on their face and efficient unobtrusive service. We would step out our door and were only a few feet from the... More

Pictures don't do this place justice! Beautiful flowers surround a group of well-kept, super-clean cabins that are just feet from the beach! We can't emphasize how convenient it was to have our cabin so close to the beach, as well as having Firefly's new bar & deck overlooking the ocean to sit and relax in. The communal bathrooms and showers... More

We enjoyed or holiday. Nice weather, nice people. Our kids loved it too although it's not an all-in. :-) This was our second visit. And we are very sorry... but it will be our last visit. The resort is sold and the beach will not be clothing optional anymore. :-((( This kind of beach was the reason we came to... More

My wife Jess and I stayed at Firefly for 8 nights and had the best vacation we ever had. We have been to Negril many times before and have stayed many diffrent places, I can honestly say we have never felt so at home and welcomed. The room was immaculate, cleaned daily with fresh sheets.

Firefly Cottages no longer has a nude beach so if this is important to you go someplace else.This used to be a very relaxing place to stay with a clothing optional beach Sadly that is no more so it's no longer unique on 7 miles beach. There are now much better alternatives.

David S, previous owner until 1st March this year. at Firefly Beach Cottages, responded to this review

I am the 'old owner', responding with the permission of the new owners of Firefly. Previous guests who enjoyed the naturist facility here will naturally be disappointed that it is no longer available. The reviewer's previous review of Firefly last June gave 5* for 3 categories, while this year he gave 4* to two of those categories and to another... More

My fiance, a friend of ours, and myself stayed at Firefly the first week of March for my 30th Birthday. We are all well traveled and have stayed in Negril several times. We read many of the reviews before staying but didn't feel like the reviews gave an accurate representation of the property. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Top class suites, penthouses and studios in the best part of Negril Beach. The gardens are beautiful year round. Our wonderful guests are beach lovers who also enjoy the ambiance, the serenity, the casual yet efficient feeling, the weekly beach party and the beachfront rooms which are surprisingly rare on Negril beach. ALL units have kitchens and verandas. Gym, WiFi and Jacuzzi are here. All our romantic rooms have kitchens or kitchenettes allowing greater choice of dining and drinks than mere hotel rooms. Our beach bar/cafe, with Maxine in charge, is well-known for the luscious pancakes and other breakfast items and day-long snacks along with the coldest beer served with the warmest smiles to our guests and other visitors on the beach.Our guests come from many countries, at times they are from as many as nine countries represented at our free weekly beach parties. What they return for is the casual, friendly atmosphere, no-one knows whether you're rich or poor, no-one wears a Rolex, and you go to the beachfront in your bikini or swimsuit - no need for any other cover unless you wish.We have watchmen and security cameras at night just to make sure you're OK.There are many cafes, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance on the beach and all water-sports are close by. Reggae concerts (Bourbon Beach, Roots Bamboo) are 10 to 15 minutes walk away on the beach and Kool Runnings Water Park is 2 miles away across the road.Shopping for gifts and souvenirs is available at Time Square one mile away and supermarkets are 2 miles away, in town. Also each year our team wins in the Negril Marathon/half/10k early December. This year in the full Marathon we had the 2nd overall and the first in the over 80 age group (Roy Thomas from Kingston who runs the Marathon here every year). We also had other section winners.
