We were fortunate to spend one night at Hide Awhile after spending 5 nights at the sister property Idle Awhile. The rooms have the same contemporary, blue tile vibe. Housekeeping is excellent. Rooms are spacious, a/c worked great. We had a garden room which was very quiet. Hide Awhile was a relaxing retreat after the hustle and bustle on 7-mile beach. There is no beach at Hide Awhile, but a small pristine pool overlooking the ocean cliffs. There is a ladder down the cliffs to the ocean. The surf was really crashing into the cliffs while we were there, so we didn't venture into the ocean, just sat on the wall by the cliffs and enjoyed the sounds and the view. We walked to three great spots to eat from Hide Awhile - 1) Out of Town Pastries for patties, an amazing Fish Loaf filled with Ackee and fish and Coco bread 2) Murphy's for really cold Red Stripe and Jerk Chicken and great conversation 3) Just Natural for out of this world rustic garden atmosphere and vegetarian delights. Norman at the resort is always on site. We chatted for over an hour and grew to love him as he spoke sincerely of peace, love and the ways of the world. Sandria at the front desk is super friendly and helpful. We didn't have time to try the outdoor restaurant by the pool. Hide Awhile is fairly far out on the West End Cliffs past the lighthouse. Taxis are plentyfull even out here if you start walking or you can have Sandria call one for you. We had an in room kitchen which was great for drinks - even had a blender. If you love Negril but want a quieter spot removed from the vendors on 7-mile - this is a great alternative. By the way there is a free shuttle between Idle Awhile and Hide Awhile that runs in the morning and the afternoon so you really can have the best of both worlds - the beach and the cliffs. Just check in at the front desk of either resort for the times and let them know you will be on-board.
