Seriously, I honestly felt like royalty at this place! Everyone at The Castle is so nice and accommodating. On the other hand, it is Jamaica- so you need to be in the "chill" frame of mind and not in too much of a hurry to get what you want. It all comes together in good time. In the meantime, just relax and gaze out over the beautiful ocean! This was our second stay here. The first time we stayed, I agreed to The Castle because my husband wanted to stay here. And I found I was pleasantly surprised! Yes, yes, the accommodations are not glorious, but they are cozy and comfortable. The staff will help you with any special need you may have. I requested some extra bedding and specific types of sheets, and the maids were very helpful ( we were told by other tourists during our first trip to Jamaica to leave a tip for the maids on the pillow each day - and so we do this, and I think it helps build a nice friendly relationship with the maids). One of my water sandals came apart and the maintenance man, Donald, put it back together for me, when the prospect of finding the right glue or another pair of sandals in Negril seemed overwhelming and a bit of a hassle. The kitchen staff is great. The food is wonderful. And you can request your meal to be served anywhere on the grounds. I favor Teddy's SNAPPER, but the lobster is also very good. I also like the Callaloo - the greens- which you can request. Each room is unique here. Most have an ocean view or are RIGHT on the ocean, so you can see the ocean, or at least hear it, from your bed. The one downside to staying on the cliffs is the ROAD!! So narrow and dangerous due to the many cars whizzing quickly by! I would say that it is fine to venture out into the neighboring establishments, but I would take a taxi to the beach or to anyplace near the lighthouse - and I would only walk the road during the day when you can see the many variations in the ground beneath your feet ( I fell one night in the dark when I did not allow for the dip in the road just before we reached a curb while running to avoid being run down by a car!). We definitely felt safe at the Castle and on the cliffs, though. There is a guard at the gate at all times - and also a guard dog. No one comes onto the grounds without the permission of the owner or manager. My husband and I went snorkeling daily and had a great time in the ocean right around the castle and along the cliffs. There are two different ladders to get into or out from the ocean. It is so private! We felt that we were in a romantic paradise! And the other guests at the castle were also all very nice and interesting people. Many guests are returning visitors to the Castle year after year. We have already booked our room for next year and look forward to another visit to PARADISE!
