Everything shuts down at 10..i stayed at merrills 2 cause the other merills were shut down.. I didn't know this at this time.. The beach was beautiful and security was always present.. You did have beggars in the beach but a firm no once or twice they got the picture.. The bartenders were nice didn't care for the food or drinks.. The waiters were Ok but basically you were on ur own if you needed something, it's in a good location and the staff was friendly and helped when they could. Towels are limited but the front desk gave you towels if needed. It's very small resort which I liked cause not alot of people.. The food was not the best and other ate their once.. The rooms are airy and very basic, the other guest are friendly. I would stay again just due to the small walk to the beach and the clean beach.. Staff didn't bother you, overall an relaxing experience.. Security was the nicest staff . don't expect any luxury but a basic place to sleep and eat.. If u miss a meal ur screwed til next eating time.. It's in a good location to the things I wanted to do, overall a good relaxing time.. Will stay again.. I felt safe the entire time. .

Great location, clean and airy rooms. Staff very kindly acquired a fridge & tea n coffee facilities to assist my medical needs. Staff very friendly and went over and above to make our stay memorable. Food was good quality a little repetitive pasta etc but after a quiet word the jamaican food flowed. Donovan was a pleasure he ensured our glasses were taken care kept topped up.
It rained and areas had a few minutes of flooding but it eventually drained away. The entertainment was different !!!!!!! a fire eater come bellie dancer,he gave us joke and had a good giggle fabulous.
I have no complaints at all. Would recommend merrils to all. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The beach adjacent to the beach is perfect just be aware of the constant agglers but there only trying to make a living.
Thanks to all staff at Merrils....

We stayed for 5 days in room 806 second floor with a Beautiful view of the ocean off our balcony. My sister stayed in 805 so we could talk through the lattice work between the balconys. one thing staying in that room was every morning early the Jamaician music next door started.it was a little bar that was happening all day long. we enjoyed listening to the music even that early. it got us up and going for the day. Who wants to sleep in Jamaica any way. All the meals were good even as picky as I am about eating I could always find something to eat. they have 3 meals a day with snacks in between. I was always hungray in between meals and if you ask one of the kitchen staff will make you a sandwich or salad. Staff was Great and always cheerful. I really liked how their security kept the beggars from bothering you.When you go to this resort don't forget to take a ride on the glass bottom boat. Also beside the resort in the sand on the right is a little shop run by Tony. Tell him Sher sent you and he will give you a Great deal. We will be going back to this resort in the fall.

Room Tip: we had room 806, Great view of ocean. The other side of resort would probably be quieter. We where a...

Overall was nice place to stay. Property is nice and location is great. Menu in restaurant is ok. Needs a bit more variety but overall good good. Most of the staff are very nice and helpful. Would definately stay here again. Everything seems to work in the room and the rooms are pretty spacious and clean.

Spent 11 nights at Merrills Beach Resort 11 and must say l had a lovely time. My cousin came down from the parish of St. Mary's and spent a few days with me at the hotel. He also said he was very pleased with the service that Merrills Beach Resort 11 provided. The Food and accommodation was very good. A nice variety of food was served daily. Lots of alcohol at the bar which was good. Waitress service was good. It was also nice that i had the choice of dining at Merills 1 and 3 as well.

I spoke to the manager called Michael and his wife and they made me feel very welcome indeed.

l Would definitely stay at Merrills 11 again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side are quieter

We were at Merrills 2 from 2/5-2/12/14. First time in Jamaica and opted for a smaller resort but still an All Inclusive. This was an anniversary trip- like John & Mary who we met at the resort and so at check in- asked about upgrading to an ocean front room- but they were occupied- hello New Yorkers- Brian & Aimee but was surpised one night with a bottle of wine/ fresh fruit and a warm tub filled with rose petals after dinner. Staff was very friendly and would go out of your way for what ever you needed & very nice getting to know all of them. The grounds are very beautiful and loved the two story villa style set up. The bar at Merrills 3 was the hang out for most of the trip and met some very interesting people- Ozzie, Tom, John & Mary, the New Yorkers. Beautiful sandy , calm beach, and you could walk for hours on the 7 mile strip. Food was fair- to good- with some fun entertaining night shows. All in all- I would highly recommend this resort if you like a more relaxed casual place to stay. Best regards- AD & Mary / Minnesota
