I recently stayed at the Tree House Resort in Negril, Jamaica in January 2014 for vacation. The resort is small (70 rooms) but very comfortable at the same time. The resort is right on the beach with beautiful ocean views and access. Breakfast was provided every morning , (which was amazing!) and I even had a delicious lunch there during my stay. (Mostly appetizers and dessert). The general staff (bartenders, maintenance, waitresses and housekeeping) are very down to earth and friendly. At times, the main receptionists can be short, especially when there is more than one guest. Gail and Charmaine, were extremely helpful via email, in answering any questions about the resort/area, usually within 1 business day. During my stay, we used Kenny Tours to and from the airport (since it was an 1hour and half away) and received excellent service and info about the island during the ride from Brian and Jeremiah( I believe). I also took a Southeast tour of Jamaica with Richard W. from Chukka/JUTA and was beyond wowed with all of his expertise and recommendations, besides his excellent driving. We toured the Black River, YS Falls, and Appleton Rum estate. This tour was a 2 hour drive to the first destination, and 2 hours back to the hotel, but each stop was not more than 20 minutes from each other. We left at 830am and came back at 630pm, with an option of lunch in between. Lastly, we took another excursion to Rick's Cafe( for food and to watch the cliff divers) with a driver named Norris, who was also a very safe and reliable mode of transportation. The one part of the vacation that we were disappointed in was the option to para-sail. This was $40 per person (so $80 total). The gentleman took us out via jet-ski to the pair-sail boat, and suited us up with life jackets and harnesses, along with another couple. Unfortunately, it took 45 mins to untangle the larger parachute, only to discover that it had not been mended and could not be used. There was an option for single riders on a much smaller parachute, but this would have taken 2x as long for all the couples to go, and the main point was to go together. A gentlemen did try to bring another parachute to the boat via jet-ski, but at this point it was 1hour and half, and no para-sailing. When we came back to the front desk to inform them about the scenario the receptionist seemed in shock and hesitant to return both couples original purchase. She did refund the one couple, and never billed myself. (Since we had the option to charge it to the room.) Just as a general word of advice, there are many vendors on the beach trying to sell everything from fruits to cigs, papers to hats, and more. If you are not interested kindly say "No thank you." Also, do not tell them it is your first time to the island, they will try to continue to talk to you until you purchase something. They are not allowed onto the resorts main property, aka beach/bars and lounges which is strictly watched by Guardsmen security, up and down the entire Seven Mile Beach. Lastly, if you are flying into MBJ airport, I would recommend leaving early, since the airport is very busy at the ticket counters, security checkpoints, etc. I would recommend the Negril Tree House, along with YS Falls, Appleton Rum Estate, Rick's Cafe and the Black River Safari Trip.
