How the heck do you rate the experience: it was amazing and it was awful. I was there in December 2012 and was robbed in my bedroom while I was asleep on my last night (and I didn't hear a thing!). They even found the safe key and ransacked that! Thankfully I wasn't harmed: and talking to locals afterwards its... More

Arrived home last night after 3 weeks at Merril's. I see changes since last year...oh yes. Not all for the better I am afraid. Although the staff ( Kedecea, Keronna, Marlon, Eloise, Tanisha, Carl, Barbara, and Charlie, etc ) are still there, I found that the managing system of the resort has slipped since my last visit. The no smoking... More

We loved staying at Merrils I!! One of the best things about it was the food- it was clear that the chefs were really trying hard to provide a decent range of Jamaican home cooked specialities- curry coat, callaloo, jerk chicken- plus lots of fresh veg and salad. Another nice touch was the baking of their own biscuits and cakes... More

it's the family atmosphere that keeps us coming back, and we are already sorted for our next vacation. For a first-timer to Jamaica, stay away from the big hotels if you want to find out what the Jamaican people are about. Everyone in this hotel is so friendly, and aim to make your stay special. The beach is a dream,... More

We stayed at Merrils I, 11/24/2011 for 11 nights. We had a great time. We had stayed at Merrils II in 2008, so we knew what to expect of the Merrils resorts. The buffets were really good fresh food served 3 meals a day. This time we were glad to see they had added jerk chicken, curried goat and callaloo... More

Spent some wonderful days just lying on the beach resting. The resort is perfect for this, a balcony to sit out on in the shady tropical garden and a wonderful beach. Plenty of rum drinks and great variety of fresh fruit and vegs. Being a lady on my own I was a bit wary, but the resort is very secure... More

The section of Negril was great, the beach was beautiful. Security did an outstanding job fending off the "beach vendors". Food was ok, had a lot of repeat and not a lot of selection, but was good. The bar was less than expected though, bartenders were NOT friendly and weren't always there, very little selection. Odd that they had no... More
