Although my wife Debbie and I were only able to arrange a 5 day long vacation at the Firefly - it was the best vacation ever! We had five days of sun, daytime temperatures80F plus, the most beautiful water I have ever seen, wonderful swimming in the ocean - and most important of all, absolute relaxation. Although it was our... More

Firefly is small compared with the neighboring hotels. Firefly's smallness is its strong appeal. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The guests were friendly and mixed well. The sea was clear, shallow and calm - perfect for swimming or just wading. Unfortunately, next door was a jet-ski rental but that may not last to next season. We bought our... More

While the beach and location cannot be beat, the hotel itself left much to be desired. The beachside cottage we originally booked was pretty rustic and we were allowed to move to another room which was much better with a beautiful view of the beach! However, the wireless internet in the rooms was intermittent at best and we had to... More

Chaises, hammock and Maxine the bset bartender at the little... More

Firefly is a bit of a throwback to the 70s or even the 60s; uber casual, friendly, and really just an "anything goes" sort of ambiance. The rooms are "rustic" but adequate and clean; the grounds are pretty but not ultra manicured or overdone so that you feel uncomfortable walking on the grass or something; all the staff know you...

The reviewer booked 5 nights on our internet site at our clearly shown rates for February high season. He stayed the first night in the cottage on the sand. Next day he said it was too close to the sea, so he moved back to a larger unit which was $35 a night +10% tax more. He did not pay... More

Our first trip to Jamaica was a success and we will definitley return to Firefly Cottages. As two single Moms traveling with our 16 year old daughters we were looking for a safe and authentic experience. Safety was never an issue during our stay at Firefly. We had the pleasure of experiencing the Gardenview Penthouse. It includes a small veranda,... More

Firefly is very tough to rate. We stayed ten days and had a relaxing time -- it may be exactly what you want, or you could be misled by other reviews or their website. First, the staff is very friendly; they really do try. Housekeeping is efficient and thorough -- though they're somewhat unpredictable as to when they show up.... More
