I am Jamaican born who grew up in the United States and has been living there for many years. However, I love Jamaica. My husband is a US citizen by birth. We have been travelling all over and for the last 5 years, my husband and I are use to staying at the All Inclusive hotels in Negril/Kingston because at first we thought we needed to get the know-how around town before we started moving about but it's been our 8th visit now and after getting to know Negril and what it has to offer, we decided that we were done with locking ourselves in.
Our friends Jammie and Andy who stayed at Firefly Beach Cottages told us that we would really love it there so we decided to give it a try.
When we just arrived Firefly, we were a bit nervous as it was the beginning of something new for both of us but after checking in and getting to know the staff and other guests that were staying there, We bacame very relaxed. I then knew that we had nothing to worry about by the way we were welcomed.
I was so amazed by the way the staff greeted us and made us feel like we were at home. They all know us by name by day 2 and the services offered was great. There was always someone there to help with whatever we needed to be done.
The housekeepers were excellent. The room was not as fancy as the larger hotels but it is lovely the way it is. I had the most delicious Jamaican breakfast in 8 years at their Mini Bar.
I now feel like I have a home to go in Jamaica each year and I am looking forward to going back again and again.
- 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.
