By far the best meal I had in Negril was cooked by Collette at Citronella. At first we were unsure about the ordering process, but after talking to Collette, we understood that she would make whatever we wanted and we just needed to ask and tell her what time we wanted to eat. So on our second day at the... More

We stayed in the Cave House with our teenaged kids. The views from the porch are amazing - we saw stingrays, dolphins and long dark fish in the water from our balcony. We explored the cave with snorkels and even swam into the blowhole. Fresh breeze is soothing and we did not miss seeing the sunset from our porch each... More

I knew we were in for a fantastic week at Citronella when I read all the great TripAdvisor reviews prior to booking. Rarely are my expectation exceeded, particularly when I already know everyone else loved a hotel. In this case, however, I could not have predicted how peaceful and private our visit would be. In other words, it was even... More

I have been to Negril many times but this was the first time in a single house, and I would totally do it again. It forced us to leave the property and explore new resturants and activities. It really made us get to know Negril. Plus we grocery shopped and did drinks all day at the house which saved us... More

My husband and I have been to Jamaica several times, but this was our first stay on the cliffs, and it won't be our last. We booked the Cave House for 3 nights Feb. 9-12. When we arrived it was late, but Trevor was waiting to greet us and helped us carry our heavy things to our house. In the... More

This was my first time in Jamaica and my first time staying at Citronella--and it most certainly will not be my last. I travelled with 4 other adults, we stayed in the Cove House for seven nights and we had an amazing time. There are so many things that make Citronella an amazing, unique and wonderful place to stay -... More

Citronella is a small and lovely place - far enough from Negril to be isolated and detached and close enough by car to get to the beach anytime you like. This property is on the cliffs outside of town and is set-up as a series of bungalows each with its own design, water access and sea-view. There's a wonderful breakfast/dinner... More

Technically Jan 2013 but I have just started going back on my reviews Found this place online booked and honestly I think they undersold themselves as I was a little concerned my wife may want a tad more luxury. We stayed 2 nights, we both wished it was longer. This place will be high on my global list! Great team... More

It's hard to understand how the best could get better, but it has. I had a brief respite at Citronella recently, & it has gone from my favorite place in Jamaica to my favorite place in the Caribbean. Every aspect of the experience has been enhanced through the wisdom and experience of the owners and their family - and the... More

We thouroughly enjoyed Citronella, the cottages are all beautiful, perched on the cliffs above the blue ocean. We stayed in the Cave House which is built on top of a water cave in the cliff so the sound of the waves is very soothing and hypnotic inside the house and on the porch. We ate several breakfasts and one dinner... More
