We do not like the clonetown all inclusive type places where you blend in with the clone masses, spend way too much for the all inclusive "deal" and feel like your at just another beautiful beach anywhere in the world. We like to experience a little more of the culture, break out of the box a bit. Firefly is in... More

I started coming to Jamaica about ten years ago, initially, staying at various hotels - until I discovered the Firefly. Since then I've been escaping to the Firefly twice a year. At many hotels you have sun, beach, and ocean but you can barely tell what country you are visiting it is so homogenous. At the Firely you get a... More

I stayed a few nights in one of the Firefly Cottages 10 years ago. It was unforgettable; the fact that it is situated on the best beach in the Caribbean is definitely a plus. Great rates, great location, great staff. If you plan on spending most of the time in your room, stay somewhere else.

If you want a sterile room in a resort that could be in any hot country then this is not for you. Firefly is a small unique resort where there is an extremely warm welcome from genuine Jamaican people. The apartments and studios are all individual offering different amenities. The furnishings are basic but comfortable and towels and bed linen... More

If you want to get away from the all inclusive and the crowds firefly is the place for you, very relaxed and no hassles. Very well maintained grounds, raked every day, and so is the beach. staff would have my chair put out for me, so every morning i would be down at the beach with my coffee and take... More

I am counting the days (9) until my 7th visit to the Firefly Beach Cottages and Secrets Cabins right on the 7 mile beach in Negril, Jamaica. Getting out of the taxi in the driveway of Firefly on my first trip - I didn't know what to expect, so I walked down the pathway through a beautifully maintained garden to... More

My wife and I spent 8 days at Firefly in October. We have been to Negril many times and have always previously stayed in a high end room at an AI. We decided that we would like to get away from the "compound" of the AI and better experience the real flavor of Negril. Firefly is centrally located on 7... More

Generally did not have a great time at Firefly when we stayed here in the summer of 2011. We were not expecting much from the lodging or facilities in general given the price and description online. Our room was small but decently well kept and what we had expected; the beach was also nice and the water was great and... More

My bride (of 26 years) and I have been going to Firefly every year since we've been married, and have always had a great time there. First, the place is small and intimate, without all the massive concrete walkways of other places. One is always surrounded by flowers, fruit trees, and hummingbirds. The staff is incredible, doing everything they can... 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.
