“The truth is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Truth is the Fun Holiday is a three star hotel.I give four because of the hard working staff.My wife and I were there from 11/3/14 to 11/10/14.Camille at the front desk and the rest of the staff made our vacation a memorable one.No it's Beaches or Sandals.That's not the real Jamaica to us.We have been to Montego Bay,Trelawney,and Ocho Rios.So we are more than familiar with Jamaica.There is nothing wrong with the food or the people.People come to this hotel from Canada,Australia,and the U.S.And they try to cater to everyone.Even the ones that lie about them on the internet.You don't have to eat there if you don't want to.Alfreds is right down the beach.They make a great breakfast.Two people can eat for about twenty bucks.Kuyabas and Legends are further down the beach.Both are great places to eat.The hotel is in a great location on Seven Mile Beach.They have good live music Friday and Saturday night.Remember it's a small family owned hotel.No different than any other small family owned hotel.And that's the truth.

Room Tip: D205.The room is is nice with a king size bed.

Took another trip to Negril this year & stayed once again at The Fun Holiday Resort Sept 26-Oct 10/14. Walking into the resort was like being home. Al the staff remembered us & welcomed us with open arms, amazing. We stayed for 2 weeks this time & truly it was not long enough. Met a friend Tom there that was there when we were in May/14, so nice to see it was like a reunion. I have nothing negative to say about this Resort, yes its not a five star resort but the staff are friendly, helpful & work very hard. The location, right on the beach is unbelievable & close to everything. I don't need a five star Resort to enjoy myself on holidays, did it but enjoy this atmosphere, people & location much better!!! If your going on holidays to pick out all the negative things about a place then save your money & stay home, you won't be happy with anything! Hats off to everyone at the Resort, all the returning guests because its the people & location that make it!!! Will be back at this resort in the 2015 for another great stay in Negril!!

Just got home from two weeks at Fun Holiday!
The main thing that brings me back is the location on the beach. It is one of the best places to stay if you like going to the clubs at night! You can walk to most places and not have to use a cab.
The staff at the hotel work very hard and are very friendly, please show them respect!
Please remember to tip, each dollar is extremely important to the staff. Most have to pay 5 dollars for cab fare each day! This is a big drain on their wages.
The hotel is not perfect but for a beach vacation it works well for me! If your girl friend is the Queen of the Nile, you better stay in a 5 star hotel.
The staff are what make staying at the hotel so nice. Janet and Ninja on the beach are long time trusted people. Janet will baby sit a drunk friend of yours if needed.
The hotel has hired a top notch security man, Jonathan who was a cop at one time. I have seen many security guys over the years but he is the best!
Ok if you a woman coming to Negril and your looking to fall in love with a beach guy gigolo remember a lot of these guys are trouble! Some are cool but very few! If their is one thing to keep in your head at all times is ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY! Do I need to say it again!!!!!!!
You can have a great time in Negril if you just use you head.
One love and respect to all my Canadian friends!

Jungle club opp the hotel, las vegas on the beach, bourbon beach entertainment was awesome. Staff were excellent and worked very hard. Live entertainment at the hotel too. Would deffo come back.

My friends and I went to Jamaica April 14 -22, 2014 and stayed at Fun Holidays. We were pleasantly surprised when they upgraded us to ocean front rooms. In addition, we also received adjoining rooms, balconies, a fridge and a safe in each room, as requested. The front desk staff accommodated all our needs and were helpful and friendly during our stay. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable and the shower was hot with good pressure. The cleaning staff were friendly and provided us with a clean room and fresh towels daily. The restaurant, bar and kitchen staff were pleasant and went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied and were enjoying our stay. The security and beach staff were amazing and approachable. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again as I love the staff, location and Jamaica!

A group of us (4 females) stayed at Fun Holiday from August 14- August 22, 2014 and we had an amazing time. The food was good, the hotel staff was friendly, attentive, funny, and always had our best interests in mind. Anything we needed we were accomodated with, to their best ability. Yes, the hotel itself could use some TLC but the rooms were spacious, the showers were hot with good pressure, the air conditioning worked great, the beach was beautiful and there were lots of chairs and palapas for shade, the music had a great vibe, the bartender(s) had skills, the housekeeping was consistent, the security and grounds/maintenance person was helfpul, the front desk staff was knowledgeable and efficient - we didn't have any iussues with towels or getting a refrigerator. If you are expecting 5 star when you go to Negril - stay at one of the all-inclusives up the beach (i.e. Sandals, Beaches, etc...). If you want to experience real culture, music, people, and relax this is a great location. We walked everywhere we needed to go. I love Fun Holiday and Negril and miss it terribly :(

Room Tip: If possible, choose the ocean view rooms (they also adjoin which we took advantage of), and the balc...
