after almost 20 years of visiting jamaica for both business and pleasure, this was my first trip with a child (my 7 year old stepson) in tow. because of this, we decided to stay directly on the beach, which is something i've never done before. i weighed the options (alfred's didn't seem appropriate for a youngster, nirvana was too expensive)...

No it's not the Ritz Carleton but it is very nice. The rooms are clean and the people are great. You can't beat the location right in the middle of 7 mile beach.On the beach clothing is optional so you can really get comfortable the way Jamaica should be enjoyed. You can have breakfast right on the beach.The bar could... More

We stayed at the Firefly for the first time, and could not imagine going back and staying anywhere else. The owners and staff were absolutely amazing and made us feel at home the instant we arrived. After walking along most of 7 mile beach, I know that Firefly has THE BEST private beach around. The sunsets were better than those... More

Great location, staff very friendly and helpful. Sunset from Firefly beach as beautiful as it is from Rick's Cafe. Friendly atmosphere. My husband and I traveled with our 20year daughter and 4of her friends. We always felt safe! View from ocean view penthouse was absolutely fabulous and second to none! We will definitely be returning.

I give my rating not because Firefly is a Five star resort (its not) but because of spot on description and excellent execution. In short they say what they do, they what they say, no disappointment. I was there a week during slow season, end of May thru beginning of June and a majority of the few other guests at... More

My fiance (now wife) and I returned to Negril in May to have a small, private wedding with a sunset ceremony on the beach. We stayed at the Firefly for the 5th time and again were treated like family. The owners and staff make everyone feel at home with their courteous and attentive service. Believe me, there is no "corporate"... More

This was our 3rd visit in 4 years to The Firefly for our Wedding Anniversary in May. We plan to get back as often as possible. The beauty and charm of Jamaica is obvious in postcards and photographs and at The Firefly it all comes alive. Come experience the true essence of from fresh fruit daily delivered by the Fruit...

My first trip to Negril and Firefly was for spring break 1995. Firefly met our only criteria, we wanted cheap and to be on the beach. Even at that young age, I knew that this place was special and promised myself that I would make it back there one day. 18 years later (April 2013) I finally made it. It... More

We have been coming to Jamaica now for 13 years, and discovered the beauty of Negril, and its awesomeness though our last 10 trips. We stumbled on the Firefly halfway by accident. We typically stay at a property that is nearby, which was booked during our last stay. However, we had met several friends that stay at Firefly for up... More

Firefly is a lovely, family run establishment. It is located in a prime location on 7 mile beach - almost anything is within walking distance. We stayed in one of the "Secrets Cabins" and were very happy. It was one room with electricity, bed, desk and tables - Really, what more do you need in Jamaica? It was very clean,... More

worldroamerII, Owner at Firefly Beach Cottages, responded to this review

Thanks for your review; Firefly Beach Cottages and Secrets Cabins share the same beach, the same staff and the same beach bar. The guests actually stayed in a Secrets Cabin (not a Firefly Cottage) so the review should really be for Secrets. The difference is in the accommodation. Secrets Cabins are shown on TripAdvisor under "Negril Bed & Breakfast" and... More
