“Outstanding Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

It is very unfortunate that my visit at this beautiful place was so short. In the given time it only made me wish that I had spent my time there instead of on the beach. Trust and believe I will return for a much longer stay. Jubi and the ladies were awesome and made you feel at home. The accommodations were nothing less than perfect for me. Beautiful cliffs and at the same time country living at its best. I give thanks to everyone for their kindness. This is indeed a hidden treasure amongst many. Soon come!!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Wonderful staff, excellent breakfast included. Garden side is beautiful and well maintained. Cliff side isolated with great ocean views, excellent cliff side area for sunbathing and a jump off spot into the ocean. Great spot for sunsets. Rooms are cottage like, smallish with a small porch on each cottage. Clean and simply furnished. Good quality bed. Bathrooms clean and comfortable, walk in shower. Decent water pressure. Refrigerator and kitchen available behind the main house for guests use. The thatched dining area behind the main kitchen is pretty and very Caribbean. Loved our stay and will return.

If you want to get away from the crowds of tourists and have some peace and quite...maybe even feel like you live in Negril (if even for only a few days) than this is the place for you. Dog lovers only though...there are quite a few on the property. The people are incredibly nice. The breakfast are perfectly made to order. The cabins are beautiful and clean and well-maintained.
Jube (pronounced (Jew-bee) is the man in charge and you won't ever meet a nicer, kinder person anywhere. He takes great care of you...and make great smoothies!
Tip: Stop at Hi-Lo Grocery store in Negril before you get there and stock up on some of your favorite foods, so that you can store them in Tingalaya's refrigerator and you'll be able to eat and drink and BBQ whenever you like without driving into town too much,
Shhhhhh...don't tell anybody else.

Room Tip: Buy some food at the store on your arrival trip from Montego Bay at the Hi-Lo grocery in Negril. Tha...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tucked in the beautiful west end of Negril, Tingalaya's Retreat is Jamaica's best kept secret. Founded in 2010, Tingalaya's has evolved into a luxurious, down-to-earth oasis. With 4.5 acres, 1.5 of which are on the beautiful Negril seaside, we have enough space to host nineteen guests while maintaining a feeling of intimacy, privacy, and tranquility. Authentic Jamaican breakfasts are prepared for you every morning. Other meals can be prepared for you upon request. Our guests have full use of our gourmet kitchen and dining areas allowing them to experience the joy of shopping, cooking and living in a foreign country. Take in the beauty of our tropical gardens from the shade of your veranda or enjoy just wandering the grounds. Enter our seaside through a garden of flowers, almond trees, and cacti. Hammocks swing easily in the soft sea breeze, shaded by tall trees or hidden in private groves. Follow a path to the private beach and ocean filled pool, where waves roll in and out, refreshing the water as you soak under a breathtaking sunset. Build a bonfire and watch as the day turns to an awe-inspiring night under a star filled sky. We are close enough to town to enjoy restaurants, take in the nightlife, and wander Negril's Seven Mile beach, yet far enough from the crowds to enjoy complete privacy in your own slice of paradise. Tingalaya's is an ideal location for larger family groups, weddings, retreats and other special events. We have a yoga platform on the seaside and an enclosed Yoga pavilion on the garden side of the property. Our accommodations are both eclectic and elegant. Each cottage holds it's own special charm, with art and accents from around the world. Come experience it for yourself and let Tingalaya's Retreat be your ultimate private beach house in the Caribbean. ... more   less
