5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Beautiful beach hotel at the 7 mile beach,well- maintained, but nothing fancy . Location is great, walking distance from Negril downtown and not far from Rick's cafe ( with taxi). the staff were very friendly and helpful. free breakfast was good ( try Jamaican breakfast). these were two security guards, one in the beach side and the other in the street side, very friendly and nice. Just try to talk to the to the hotel front desk if you need to go to the river or YS falls, we went there in a big bus (just us) cost us $55 each for transportation.

Went here for breakfast every morning as we stayed in a unit opposite, food and service very good, went there for dinner but won't return again due to the attitude and miserable face of sharine who worked that shift, never met another Jamaican who was so rude. Other than her the service and food was good with reasonable prices.

Just got home from a week long stay at the Bar-B-Barn. Was the best time of my life. The entire staff was excellent, the food was amazing, and the beach view is breathtaking. We literally ate a few feet off the beach and every need we had was taken care of by the staff with a smile. The bar is one of the most relaxing beach bars you will ever sit at and Cherice and Tracee make amazing Pina Coladas. The security guard Mike was a tremendous help in finding us excursions to go on and ended up becoming a close personal friend. Overall the stay was amazing and when we left it felt like leaving family. I am a repeat customer for life and am looking forward to an extended stay next year. I would recommend Bar-B-Barn to anyone who is looking for a beautiful relaxing island vacation.

Well sadly had to leave BBB..............as good as ever, best over easy eggs on the beach. Tracey, Sherrice and Hope great as allways. Rooms cleaned daily. AC keeping us Brits cool.
Security Michael and Ray as allways cool, felt safe when the power outed, drink by candle light at the bar.

Value for money...........thanks Denton for the bookings, trips and organised tranfers. Not one moment was wasted sat in Mo Bay.

Would recommend to all free thinking folks..................AI places are not good for the local economy, see JA stay at BBB. Just ask for what you need.

This is not the 4 seasons but it is wonderful! If you want to go to Jamaica and feel like you are IN Jamaica (not stuck in some resort with the same type of folks you see back home) then Bar-B-Barn is for you. True it a little "rustic" but it adds to its charm. You will feel right at home here, like you have a home away from home on the beautiful beach. The folks at bar b will accommodate your every need while you enjoy drinks, eats and the beach. Breakfast is included which makes it VERY budget friendly. The location is right on 7mile beach which allows for easy access to other activities (jet ski, snorkel, parasail) Not to mention it is located just across from Time Square (a small shopping mall) so you can stock up on items for your hotel fridge. This is a clean, well maintained place with Very friendly folks.

Landed last night from a 10 day stay at Bar B Barn - our first, but not last! This is a great little hotel on Seven Mile Beach - the staff is just fabulous. We enjoyed the protection of their security team, especially Michael who made sure we had chairs in the sun and that only the vendors we wanted to talk to lingered. Tracey and Hope served us breakfast (included!) every morning and made sure the coffee was always plentiful, always greeting us by name and with a smile. Marvin entertained us at the bar every night - he's a first class bartender! Angela always took time to chat and make sure all was well. The restaurant upstairs has good Italian - the pizzas are a little pricey, but the best in Negril. The beach in front of the hotel is spacious, the blue water and white sand make a pool unnecessary. The beds are definitely on the firm side, and the accomodations are basic - clean and well-kept. Almost everyone we spoke to had been coming to the Bar B Barn for years, and we feel like we have been let in on a secret! For the price and location, this place is a gem.

Stayed at Bar-B-Barn for Christmas and New Years! We had a blast! Each time we return, Angela and all of her employees hug us and say "Welcome Home!" This is better than home because they cook and clean for us daily. All we have to do is watch the ocean and enjoy the day!! We always meet interesting people from around the world while there. Weather is perfect every day! Go and enjoy Angela's place!

Room Tip: Rooms may be close to the street or the beach. Restaurant and bar are on the beach end.
