Stayed here last year for three nights on our honeymoon. Wish we had stayed longer!! Wonderful food and drinks and top-notch staff. Needle, the quietly humorous bartender, made me banana daiquiris (fresh banana, rum, and ice) throughout my stay. Everyone overall went above and beyond to make your vacation special. Be sure to check out the massage lady next to... More

Loved this hotel! It was our first time in Jamaica.. The rooms are quite nice and spacious. I loved our balcony. The staff was very helpful and very nice. The restaurant had very, very good food. We all enjoyed the beach to very well maintained.

Your first clue of a genuine desire to make you happy is how Idle Awhile handles your booking. Their communication via email or phone is relaxed and welcoming. You will not have any unexpected "surprises" -- all will be exactly as Idle Awhile management promised. First. Last. And then more. We were greeted at check in with, "Welcome home", and... More

Idle Awhile has 14 rooms located in the middle of 7 mile beach. Our family stayed here for a week while attending our son's wedding. The rooms are contemporary, very clean and large. You are just steps from the beach from any room in the hotel. The staff are wonderful, our housekeeper excellent. Karim at the front desk went out... More

I absolutely love this place. The staff was very helpful, friendly and respectful. The resort itself was a perfect location right on the beach strip. We walked out of our room (106 1bedroom suite) and the beach was right there. The beach is beautiful, clean white sand and the local vendors did not bother you once you told them you're... More

When you arrive and they say "welcome home"... Well at first your not sure what they mean but when you leave with hugs and (I'll admit it a few tears) you know exactly what they meant. This place is amazing, I can not say enough good things in this review. The property is gorgeous, the rooms are amazing and the... More

There are review comments that need to be dispelled. I visited five different restaurants and the service was never slow. The vendors on the beach were never rude. A simple, curtious "no thank you" worked very well. The menu at the hotel was limited but very good, especially the garlic shrimp. The drink menu was fabulous. Try the continental breakfast,... More

Just returned from spending four nights at Idle Awhile. What a fantastic place! With only fourteen room or suites, it's a very quiet hotel and is so small, you know the names of most of the staff within the first day you're there. The rooms are incredible for the price. We stayed in one of the one bedroom suites and... More

We stayed 5 nights and had a great time! Loved the location on the beach, the cleanliness, and great staff. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning and spent the day relaxing on the beach. We decided against going on any excursion and this beach was too beautiful to leave. Although there was construction noise from the hotel next door,... More

My wife and I recently visited Negril Jamiaca for the first time this past May. I like most of you scoured the internet and trip advisor trying to figure out everything there was to know about Negril. We contemplated between a boutique hotel or an all inclusive, and eventually decided on Idle Awhile. The Hotel: It was nice by Jamaica... More
