We returned again this year to the Villa la Cage, Negril, Jamaica for our 6 week Winter Getaway. Most of the rooms can be air conditioned.
. The proprietor is Mr Arreton Bell, the Head Housekeeper/ Day Manager, Janet Brown and the Chef is Pauline. There are around 26 rooms, 4 with a small kitchen. There is also a restaurant and large pool. All of the staff including the 24 hour security people and grounds men are very friendly and ready to assist you in any way they can. Security handles late night check ins as well as patrolling the grounds. Janet or Pauline will do your laundry but a reasonable tip should be given. Janet makes sure the day to day operation of the Villa runs smoothly and both her and Pauline are very nice young women. Pauline will cook a delicious meal of your choice; just give her a few hours notice if you want something special so she can procure the ingredients.
Mr Bell is a very social gentleman and frequently takes the guests on errands or to the beach. He even took our group of three out to a Jerk Pork lunch at Ragabones. He will chat it up with the guests and keep you laughing and informed on the coming and goings in the Negril area.
There are a variety of rstaurants nearby that cater to foreign guests as well as serving authentic Jamaican cuisine. My favorite is a restaurant called the The Swordfish which has a variety of Jamaican and American/Canadian cuisine. Other restaurants close to the Villa are Peewees, Bently' Crab House, Mi Yard, Chicken Lavish, Jenny's
(authentic Jamaican cuisine), numerous small restaurants, jerk carts, and loads of rum bars. The Rockhouse, Xtabi and The Blue Cave Castle offer superberb high end cuisine. My wife, I and and old friend had a fantastic meal of a variety of seafood dishes for her annual Birthday Party in Jamaica at The Blue Cave Castle cooked by Chef Teddy.. The Swordfish Bar and Grill provided a delicious and huge carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. A young lady by the name of Marsha (aka Ann Marie) owns and operates a hair salon that caters to men and women as well as locals and tourists. She is excellent and will also keep you entertained. Nearby is Pams Fruit, Vegetable and Craft shop that has been there for 26 years.
