...We absolutely LOOOOVE Murphy's! It's the BEST place to chill in Negril. My boyfriend and I first discovered Murhpy's on last year's Jamaica trip, and it quickly became our new favorite hang-out by far. AND owner Leniel immediately remembered us when we showed up again this year. The food is the best and the freshest in Negril (Leniel takes a TON of pride in his food, a very talented chef), and the service is even better. You can relax in the hand-made hammocks all day (Leniel makes them himself), enjoy the best jerk chicken in town (not to mention the rest of their awesome food), and just feel like you're with family from the first moment. Leniel and his family are great hosts, always eager to please, and always take a sincere interest in getting to know their customers. I'm pretty sure it's impossible not to fall in love with this place. If you'd like a good place to just slow down a bit from the hustle and bustle of the beach and the night clubs, head toward the West End, just past the lighthouse.
**(While you're there, ask Leniel about his future plans for Murphy's; I believe he plans on expanding just a bit to have a cottage or two on the property for rent sometime in the future. I can't wait! Also, look into buying one of his hand-woven hammocks while you're there. They are extremely well-made and make great gifts. Amazing craftmanship, we absolutely LOVE ours!)**
We initially came here for a couple beers and a meal, but we left with new friendships we wouldn't trade for the world. We wouldn't think of returning to Negril without visiting Murphy's again. And again and again.... LENIEL, if you read this: John and I wish you the best in your plans for Murphy's and for your family as well. You certainly deserve it. Much love!---Renell
