I stayed from Jan. 29-Feb. 8th 2013 and enjoyed every minute. I always went to mexico, every year. I will always return to Firefly every year from now on. I've never felt so at home or safe as i did at Firefly. They are all so welcoming. Made many new friends that return at the same time every year, i will now be one of them :) The staff, including security, make sure you are taken care of and safe. The room i had was very clean, keep in mind, it is not a fancy resort. It's more like your first apartment, cute, comfy, like home. You have a bath, kitchen,bedroom, in the style room i had. There are less expensive rooms also. All accomedations are clean and decorated the way you would expect in Jamaica in one of the oldest hotels in Negril. The beach is just fabulous!! There is nudity,Cheap entertainment...LOL!! Some are nude, most are not. People aren't up walking around nude, just while laying in the sun. I saw some negative comments on here. I have to say, you can't please everyone...so keep that in mind ;) I had the BEST vacation i've ever had at Firefly. No issues what so ever, no mold, no bugs, always had hot water, clean room every day. One day i didn't do my dishes, the lady that cleaned my room, did my dishes. Now i call that service :) I saved alot of money cooking my own meals, so i could stay longer. I keep going on and on, i just can't say enough about my fabulous vacation. This is the first review i've ever written. They deserve a great review....I snorkled, took a boat ride on Black River, had the best time. This is a laid back, relaxing kinda place, guess that's why so many return year after year. Another great thing about their area of the beach, there are some trees, so you can lay back in your lounger in the shade when you;ve had enough sun. There are vendors that walk the beach, you have to try the rum ice cream, the best. Also the fresh squeezed juices they sell are fantastic. There are many restaurants on the beach, you never have to leave the area for anything, except to just explore. You will want to bring a hair dryer ;) The only thing i wore for 10 days was my bikinis and cover ups, never wore shoes but one time when i went to the grocery store. I've been to 5 star resorts in Mexico, i'd rather stay at Firefly anyday! Hello to you all at firefly, I am thinking of coming back in April. Hope to see you soon. Tina Grafton Sargent, Plymouth, Illinois . PS. Next Jan. I am planning to stay a month. I'm so excited!!!
