While the beach and location cannot be beat, the hotel itself left much to be desired. The beachside cottage we originally booked was pretty rustic and we were allowed to move to another room which was much better with a beautiful view of the beach! However, the wireless internet in the rooms was intermittent at best and we had to take our computer down to the office to get it to work consistently. The air conditioner only cooled off one room and not well as the 'windows' were just screens with shutters, no glass. The bar next door played loud music 5 out of the 7 nights we were there so you can forget a peaceful night of sleep, and during the day, the neighbors on the other side frequently revved jet ski engines throughout the day so forget a relaxing afternoon nap. Having said all that, the beach was wonderful and Maxine, the bartender, was incredibly friendly and helpful! The breakfast at the bar was very good and inexpensive! It was also nice to have the kitchen in our room and there were lots of good restaurants within walking distance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Top class suites, penthouses and studios in the best part of Negril Beach. The gardens are beautiful year round. Our wonderful guests are beach lovers who also enjoy the ambiance, the serenity, the casual yet efficient feeling, the weekly beach party and the beachfront rooms which are surprisingly rare on Negril beach. ALL units have kitchens and verandas. Gym, WiFi and Jacuzzi are here. All our romantic rooms have kitchens or kitchenettes allowing greater choice of dining and drinks than mere hotel rooms. Our beach bar/cafe, with Maxine in charge, is well-known for the luscious pancakes and other breakfast items and day-long snacks along with the coldest beer served with the warmest smiles to our guests and other visitors on the beach.Our guests come from many countries, at times they are from as many as nine countries represented at our free weekly beach parties. What they return for is the casual, friendly atmosphere, no-one knows whether you're rich or poor, no-one wears a Rolex, and you go to the beachfront in your bikini or swimsuit - no need for any other cover unless you wish.We have watchmen and security cameras at night just to make sure you're OK.There are many cafes, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance on the beach and all water-sports are close by. Reggae concerts (Bourbon Beach, Roots Bamboo) are 10 to 15 minutes walk away on the beach and Kool Runnings Water Park is 2 miles away across the road.Shopping for gifts and souvenirs is available at Time Square one mile away and supermarkets are 2 miles away, in town.
