I stayed 3 nights at Tingalayas. The positives were the friendly staff, great breakfast, and cute cottages in a jungle like atmosphere. The negatives were it is isolated and far from town. In addition to an expensive room rate there were expensive taxi fares to go anywhere. The resort really should have a free or cheap shuttle. My room was... More

The villas were tastefully built and decorated. The staff, particularly, Maria, Sofie and Jubee were wonderful and very accommodating to us. A few days we slept in very late and expected to just grab some coffee and juice from the kitchen upon waking. Maria and Sofie were so welcoming and graciously offered to make us anything we wanted to eat.... More

What an incredibly beautiful place, with the most amazing, friendly and helpful staff. Not your typical hotel. Beautifully furnished, breezy cottages; salt water pool overlooking the ocean; delicious home-cooked meals; peaceful retreat with amazing yoga pavilion and gorgeous tropical grounds. Staff can help arrange drivers/excursions. We stayed in Negril the whole trip, enjoying seven-mile beach, local water park, and local... More

What a wonderful experience! From my initial contact with the resort, to my arrival and stay, everything was fantastic. Response time on my inquiry was timely and once I had booked, Jennifer provided everything I would need for my stay at this lovely boutique property including a comprehensive sheet of what to expect, what to bring and tips for things...

This place has great rooms, beautiful grounds, and just about the nicest, most helpful staff you could imagine. It is out of the way - taxi drivers kept commenting on us being in the "deep" west end - in what seems to be a mostly local neighborhood. You will have to take taxis or arrange other transportation to get around.... More

I spent about a week by myself at Tingalayas. I had travelled to Negril twice before, so I knew I wanted something a bit more quiet. This is the place! I laid at the beach all day, swam in the ocean and enjoyed Maria's wonderful food. The dogs are hilarious and the property is absolutely beautiful. It is remote, so... More

I found this hotel right here in Trip Advisor and at that time, it only had 5 reviews! I placed my trust on those 5 reviews and it totally paid off. The place was great - it's located a few miles away from where the touristy hotels are so it really does feel like a retreat. The best way to... More

I went on this trip with 4 other adults and a child that was 4yrs old. Everyone told me to make reservations and they'll pay their portion. However they assumed I was getting an all inclusive resort. I have been to Jamaica before and stayed in all inclusive, this time I wanted to experience Jamaica, not a resort. Everyone was... More

We are still dreaming of our stay at Tingalaya. So beautiful, so peaceful. It was great to see another side of Negril - the "deep west", where you can fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs. Everything about the place was magical - the pictures do not do it justice. We stayed in Seaview - perfectly... More
