I booked this hotel through a Groupon deal. The Westender Inn is nice overall, depending on what you are looking to do on your vacation. It is far off the beaten path. Although they say they are close to downtown Negril and Rick's Cafe, it is far past them. You will have to take a shuttle that can cost you about $30 for 2 people round trip. The property is well-kept and pretty, and it is very quiet.
There is no beach, although there is water. This is because there are cliffs (aka rocks) instead of sand. While you cannot go out on a beach, the sound of the water is very relaxing.
The rooms were a decent size, and the Direct TV was pretty good. There were certain channels that you could not get at different times (maybe satellite issues).
The weirdest thing was the bed. The king size bed consisted of 2 twin size mattresses on a king size frame. Needless to say, not very fun when you are there with your honey. It forces you both to sleep on one of the beds, which is like only having a twin size bed. The towels in the room were horrible. They were the cheap kind that leave pieces of the towel behind on you when you dry off. I found strands of hair (from the head) from some other person on the towels on two occasions. Yuck!
The restaurant was pretty good. The first day we got there, we went for a late breakfast and they didn't even have half of the items on the menu because they had to go to the market. When they did have the food in stock, it was pretty good. Remember, there are no other places to eat anywhere close! They close pretty early too, so make sure to plan for your dining needs accordingly.
Long story short, this is a great place if you just want to relax with your mate. If you want to get out and explore Negril, you should stay on a hotel that is on the beach.
