We vacationed for the 3rd time at Merrils (5th vacation to Negril) with our adult children. They throughly enjoyed themselves (1st timers). Great location on beach, quiet and I thought very safe until the kids, in their 30's had an issue late one evening. Chased and harassed by thugs Merrils security handled it quickly and quietly. Never mentioned another word... More

We've stayed at other AI's on the beach and this one I will definitely return to. The grounds are clean. The gardeners and staff are cleaning all day. The beach is kept up & free of litter. There are three large trees for shade on the beach. There are plenty of beach chairs and they're new. Rooms are very, very... More

We spent Thanksgiving week at Merril's II. The Negril 7 mile beach is just beautiful. I liked the location, because you seemed to be right in the middle, and you could walk up and down the beach either way.The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. The meals are buffet and there is nothing fancy, but you always... More

I had the opportunity to eat at Merrils' Beach Resort II on three occasions during my week long stay in Negril this Dec-Jan. I have to say that I was very impressed with the level of service and the quality of the meals during my visits. I stayed across the street at the Hidden Paradis (never again), and stumbled upon...

Our first impression was a pretty good one until we got into our room. The smell of bug spray knocked me over, it burned my throat, and it kept me up the whole night! I asked that they don't spray our room anymore, and the smell eventually went away. The air conditioning was very loud, and anytime my husband would... More

It was our second trip to Jamaica but our first to Merrils. We will definitely return! It is a clean, affordable resort with great food and lots of beach chairs. The beach is beautiful!!! The staff is very friendly and attentive. Each room feels private and secluded. You do not feel like you are at a large resort.

We stayed at Merrils II for 8 nights early November. There were 5 of us, and check in was fairly quick. Rooms - we had 3 rooms, two downstairs, one upstairs. If you like it cold, try to book a 1st floor room. The ones on the 2nd floor take a bit of time to cool off because of the... More

I stayed at Merrill's 2 for two nights in October 2014 and was not impressed. The place is in desperate need of a revamp: furniture is dated, China chipped, cutlery flimsy and the whole place is shabby. The food was terrible which was a disappointment because on the whole the food in Jamaica is usually very good. On the plus... More

This is a great place to stay, its cost effective, good size rooms, lovely view of the beatufil Negril beach every morning. From the front of house to catering team, the experience has been fantanstic. I would strongly recommend this resort. In-terms of hotel rating this would be classifed as an English 3 star hotel. The food was excellent, great... More
