My wife, our teenage daughter and I recently stayed for several days at Catcha, a boutique resort in the West end of Negril, and found it most deserrving of it''s high praise from other revieweers. Our 2-bedroom suite was large and immaculately maintianed with an unbelievable view of the sea. In fact, all the suites at this boutique resort have great views. Mauvette, a manager and reservationist, made us feel welcome in my very first conversation with her, unlike a few of the other priceier resorts in the west end of Negril. And this welcomig attitude was maintained by all the staff upon arrival and during our entire stay. In fact, each of the staff greeted us by name from the moment we arrived. The chefs, Shelley, whose cakes are to die for, and Garfield provide some of the very best meals to be had in Negril (Ivan's Bar and Restaurant are on almost everybody's rec list for Negril restaurants).. The property is not easily described , with different levels and all sorts of neat little nooks and cranniews for sunning, reading or simply hid away on a side cliff by the sea. And the grounds are beautifully maimtained. We visited a few of the more expensive oroperties in the area (can walk to many of them) and would definitely take Catcha as our first choice.Too often web pages go overboard in marketing efforts to attract customers, but with Catcha, the web page actually understates this terrific little propert. About the Negril area and its people: we found the general piopulation of Jamaicans here to be very friendly and helpful with wondefull senses of humor , whether in a store to pick up a couple of items or the taxi drivers or just folks on the street. Unlike some reports by others, we were never hassled or concerned about crime or such thingswhen roaming around (And we are city dwellers who know about crime!). Security on the property , of course, is very good. In our experience, Catcha was just a great stay in Negril, a smaller town in a beautiful part of Jamaica with wonderful people. We loved it and will return.
One mote item: for a great 1/2 or fulll day of touring at reasobal prices, contact Floyd (Pink Floyd Tours). He is a big guy wiht a big heart and a great laugh and a wonderfull attitude who, after a day of touring , will be a new found freind. He is from Negril and knows Western Jamaica well and also seems to know everybody in Western Jamaica, rural or urban. He provided us with an unforgettable experiience.
