“Hideawhile Jamaica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Loved it! Fantastic hotel, clean, gorgeous, friendly helpful staff, beautiful grounds, lovely room. Couldn't fault it. Is quite far from the rest of the cliffs and the beach but taxis are so easy and cheap to get that really didn't bother us. we were sad to leave this place.

Our vacation started at Hide-while for 2 nights before heading to Couples Negril for the remaining 5 days at the end of April.

We stayed in a garden view room that had a small kitchen in it. It was really nice. Next time we’re going to reserve one of those ocean view rooms. We toured one and they are so cool. They have 2 floors. The bedroom is upstairs and has a great view of the sea. While we were there, the sea was way to ruff to swim in. The crashing of the waves was so relaxing to listen to.



This was our 1st non all-inclusive experience and we absolutely loved it. I can’t remember the cooks name but he was quite entertaining to watch. He showed us how to make Jamaica’s traditional dish Ackee and saltfish which we had for breakfast. It was delicious! The day we left the cook was making curry goat out of goat head and stomach for the employees. If I would have been there when it was done I would have tried it!

I definitely recommend Hide Awhile!



Thanks,

Doug and Nancy

If you wish to be away from the hubbub of 7 mile beach in Negril, then head to the west end of the island to this secluded hideaway on the cliffs overlooking the sea.

To avoid flying in a blizzard, we flew to Jamaica a day early, and thus had to find a place to stay for one evening. We were lucky enough to find this small hotel. We arrived very late and were welcomed to a very comfortable room on the ground floor. We had a king-sized bed that was adorned with a heart-shaped towel in which some bougainvillea was nestled. There was a wee kitchen for longer stays, a flat-screen tv, and a very good quality air conditioner. The bathroom was freshly tiled and large, and the shower was lovely.

Saunter down to the cliff-side restaurant for breakfast if you like, or enjoy the sunshine by the pool.

Quiet, friendly, secluded. A nice spot.

Room Tip: There are not very many rooms in this small hotel, so you really can't go wrong.

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights and had a great experience. The resort is beautiful and relaxing. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the service is outstanding. They do not have a large menu but everything we had was great! If you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back!

We rented a villa at HideAwhile for the week of Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The cliff area is beautiful and quite. The villas were nice and clean, with an amazing view of the ocean. There is a nice,small resturant and bar at the pool area which enables you to never leave the resort (it does close around 6:30pm so plan ahead). I highly recommend the chicken curry crepe! But if you want to get out, they run a free shuttle to Seven Mile beach Idle Awhile resort, leaves at 11:00 and returns at 4:00. A perfect amount of time to enjoy the beach. And lastly, the sunsets were amazing! November found the sunset directly in front of our villa.

Room Tip: We had a villa facing the pool and ocean, awesome!

stayed here for a couple of nights before transferring to a resort on seven mile beach. It is on the cliffs on the far west end and just beautiful views and a total relaxed vibe. Loved all the restaurants on the cliffs from three dives, hungry lion, ltu etc... The staff at hide awhile is great and very welcoming in all ways and make you fell like family! Love this place and will be back again!
