I stayed at Rooms on the Beach in Negril for 4 days. Overall it was very nice. The rooms are quite modern-looking and the air conditioning works well. We had a nice sized balcony overlooking the beach as well.
Free continental breakfast. This includes coffee, cereal, a fruit bowl, orange juice, toast, a muffin and a slice of banana bread. You can also order from the menu and pay. It was definitely nice the breakfast was included, but it was far too many carbohydrates and no protein which to me means I'll be hungry again within a few hours. Even if I wanted just an egg, the lowest cost on the menu for anything was $6. It would have been nice to have the option to buy a hard-boiled egg for a dollar or two.
The hotel restaurant is closed very early in the day in the off-season (like 11am) so you will need to find somewhere else for lunch/dinner. There is a local restaurant attached to a grocery store just down (southwest?) the main road. You can get chicken and "rice and peas" for 6 bucks. If you prefer a more touristy option you can go "up" along the beach (Northeast) for more options.
As the name implies, the hotel is right on the beach. A lot of people hassle you to buy things on the beach (even in the off season) so the hotel has part of the beach blocked off from general access. It is helpful because no one can come right up to you and hassle you but they will still yell at you to come talk to them from the other side of the small wall. The bad thing is the wall blocks your view of the shore but you can't win them all I guess!
You have to pay if you want Wifi access on your own laptop. I don't remember the exact prices but it was high, like $16 or $18 a day. I think you could also buy a week pass but it was all too expensive to me. The lobby has two computers you can use at no charge. In the off-season there aren't a lot of guests at the hotel so there's not a huge demand for the computers but I imagine it's a different story in the busy season. But if you only need to print off a form or send a quick email here or there you at least have the option!
Overall the grounds were nice and well-kept. The workers are constantly doing upkeep. There is a pool but it is closed everyday at about 5pm. There is a small gym but I never used it. It seemed too warm in there, but I never asked them about turning on air conditioning either.
There are a couple shuttle drivers with Juta that are waiting at the hotel most of the time for anyone that needs a ride: Keith and Leon (aka Mr. Positive). We had both of them take us to various places & they were early and waiting for us each time. Keith took us on a tour one afternoon to the Blue Hole in Negril (literally one small deep blue hole), the sugarcane fields, the lighthouse & Rick's Café. Really the beach is the most exciting thing in Negril but you might as well see things while you are there. They were both very reliable drivers. Keith's number is 876-360-2251 and Leon's is 876-770-6741. US cell plans are expensive to use in Jamaica. The hotel had no problem calling the drivers to take us around Negril as well as the shuttle company for our ride to Montego Bay.
