First time in Negril, and certainly the last, we love Jamaica and the people, how ever ,you get pestered 24.7 on the beach, by the so called day trip reps, massage girls, drug dealers, we got ripped of by buying day trips that turned out to be just 2 hrs. long and paid the privilege for this in the tune...

Stayed the week of Feb 17, 2014. Staff were fantastic. Room was old and a little run down but very clean and adequate for our stay....lots of hot water at night, not so much in the morning due to their solar heating system. Food was great for breakfast, pretty good for lunch and so so for dinner. We took advantage... More

Negril' s bay is the most beautiful beach I have ever been to!!! I enjoyed my stay in Merril's I, the rooms are great: small chalet close to the seaside. The food and drinks were average, but I loved the staff and cleanliness and in particular the location. The water in the Carribean sea in November seems like a warmed... More

This is the 5th or 6th time I have stayed at Merrils I and each stay has been wonderful. The service is great, the food is great, the rooms are great. The beach is the best anywhere.

The authors cannot, just cannot have been there at the same time as us..... Remember , this is a 3 star property in a third world country, but I tell you, it provides 5 star... More

Merrill'sI is just on Negril Beach in a strategic location, close to Alfred's bar and restaurant and Times Square mall. Nevertheless it's very relaxing and safe. The all inclusive formula allows to sip your favorite drinks lying on your sunbed in the magnificent scenario of Negril beach. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The staff is always smiling and very... More
