We just had an amazing second stay at Citronella. We love it so much for all the reasons the other reviews mention. The staff are amazing - very friendly and helpful and there should you need them for anything. Always sweet and happy to see you and help in any way possible. Collette is an amazing cook. We had several... More

Our family celebrated Christmas at Citronella! We had the most memorable, glorious, time in this perfect place. It was perfect because of the people. All staff were so kind to us. We loved enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinners with Colette and Tamone. Upon arrival, on Christmas day, we were greeted to a candlelit feast! Every dish was prepared with love.... More

We've traveled throughout Jamaica over the years but Citronella has the most breathtaking beauty of any piece of land on the island. Perched atop the cliffs of Negril's west end, one is given the space and privacy to create their own Caribbean dream. Wild nightlife? No. - try the beach. Crazy party and a hoppin' bar. No - go down... More

We loved staying at Citronella. It is not the fanciest place I have ever stayed at but you cant beat the location. it is next to the Caves which is one of the nicest hotels in Negril. I am not sure where else you can get a private cottage on the ocean with steps down a cliff to your own... More

My husband and I went to Citronella for our honeymoon October 26-October 31 it was simply beautiful. First and foremost, Citronella offers heavenly views from all angles. This lovely abode not only offers breathtaking views, but privacy, seclusion and tranquility. All of the exclusives for each cabin really made this trip that much more memorable and enjoyable, everything from the... More

I think it's very important to have realistic expectations about what this is. It's a beautiful property with rustic accommodations. Do not expect amenities. Especially if traveling in the off season. Stop at the grocery store, Wise Choice market is walking distance just past Ricks. Pick up coffee, sugar, water, rum, etc... there is no breakfast in the off season.... More

The water is amazing and a swim will make you feel great. Property is beautiful and well kept. The staff is not just staff, but... More

When searching for a hotel in the Negril area, I researched many different hotels by reading the Trip Advisor reviews. I chose Citronella because of the unanimously positive reviews that it received. I admit that I can be a bit of a princess, and love a Ritz Carlton more than your average traveller. However, I did NOT want a cookie... More

My wife and I had booked with Citronella about a year in advance of our 25th wedding anniversary. We were looking for something that was quiet and away from the resort crowds. My husband and I aren’t big drinkers, and so an all-inclusive resort didn’t really fit us. My husband came across Citronella after reading through other Trip Advisor postings,... More
