“Genuine Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We just returned from our 1st anniversary at the Westender. This is the second time we have visited, and it was just as spectacular as the 1st. The food is fresh from the garden, colorful plants and animals surround, and the people are warm and welcoming.

We recommend going out to the water at night to watch the stars. With the waves crashing and the meteors shooting across, it is a very romantic experience.

While we were there, a yoga group was visiting and they invited us to join their class by the waves. A visiting artist brought jewelry made from rare seeds. We were invited to go to Half Moon beach by the owner and his lovely family. We are thinking about bringing our children next time (and all of our friends) after we learned about the very affordable nanny service available. In addition, we were treated to one of the best massages either of us have ever had by the waterside (ask for Tara).

This is the kind of place that a person falls in love with and keeps coming back. If you are looking for something a little more genuine, the Westender is for you.

Room Tip: The cabins are wonderful for families or larger groups and the rooms by the oceanside are spectacula...

My husband and I just came back from an amazing stay at the Westender Inn at the end of May.
The grounds were beautiful, our direct views of the ocean from the balcony were gorgeous and all of the staff were warm and friendly.
It provided the non- touristy relaxing vacation we were looking for.
The hotel is located at the West end of Negril which is excellent for peace and quiet and gorgeous sunsets. The ocean waves are very strong there, so we hung out in the pool on the rocks or went into town to go to seven mile beach. If you want to get into some of the action down by the beach or in town you will need to take the hotel shuttle about 10-15mins to get there. Because it was off season while we were there the staff was very accommodating to taking us into town whenever we wanted and picked us up when we were ready to go back to the hotel.

The food at the hotel restaurant Westie's was excellent! They provided a good assortment of authentic Jamaican dishes in addition to other popular food choices.

This place was truly a gem! I would definitely go back! Ask for an ocean front deluxe room for the best views. You will not be disappointed.

This was the second year my husband and I have stayed at the Westender Inn. Last year we knew we wanted to share this great hotel with our family, so, we brought everyone back with us is year. There were 11 in our party ranging from 76 to 3 years old. The staff greeted us with hugs and took care of our every need during our stay. We can't say enough about the great service we received from each and every staff member. Thank you to the Westender Inn, our Jamaican home away from home. See you next year!

I stayed here a year and a half ago. Everyone at the property was very accomadating and very helpful. The location is a bit out of the way, but better than being stuck on a large compound. The drivers were great and made getting around to see other areas very easy. Of course the sunsets are phenominal and I would say this place gives you alot of "bang for your buck".

Our stay at the Westender Inn was quite beautiful. It all started with the manager Mr. Keith, who was very prompt and accommodating with answering all of our many questions we had. He was very prompt and kind. He also gave us a great deal and great advise with going with an upgrade because our room had such a gorgeous view and seemed like it was built just for us. :)
The grounds were very nice and the gardens and trees were just stunning. The views from our balcony were awesome and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks at night were the best one could ask for for a great nights sleep. The bed was comfortable. And hats off to the staff. From sweet Jhoenea, who works in the office. To Nicole so sweet and thanks for bringing up our breakfast each morning. To our waiter Kamar whom we met for breakfast the last day, you were so kind. To the rest of the staff... hats off.... and great job to the chef. Excellent meals.. all 3! Sorry Keith was not there...would have loved to meet you in person.
Overall this establishment is for those who like secluded, laid back, relaxed, slow paced, non touristy, fantastic ocean views and the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks.
It is the last hotel on the cliffs, you do need to take shuttle or taxi to other restaurants or attractions. Just one recommendation: sign should be posted of pricing for the shuttle bus to transport out of the parish, we did a day trip and was not told that the price changes for the hotels shuttle once it leaves out of Negril. So just for future guests make sure you ask before hand of price before you leave because we were not told this.
Other than that ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I would definitely return and I have since mentioned it to others. Cannot wait to return!

If you are brave enough to rent a car in Jamaica so that you can get around, the Westender is a lovely, secluded, romantic spot. Staff is welcoming and helpful and the food is wonderful. Our room overlooked the water. The water was too rough to snorkel in when we were there but they have a nice little area to do that. Sunset is as good as Rick's and you have it to yourself! Buy the fixings for rum punch in town and keep them in your own mini fridge.
