I went to jamiaca right at the end of spring break. My girlfreind and I were looking for the cheapest place we could find to stay in negril. We looked at many reviews and decided to stay at errols. When we got to the airport no one had heard of the place, but we did find a driver who eventually knew and took us there for around 20 bucks a person. We arrived at midnight to a dark kinda sketchy lookin hotel. Mario, one of the employees came out and greeted us. We werent asked for our names or reservations but they knew we were coming. He gave us a room that was better than we expected and also offered to sell us some rather good ganja for 20 bucks. It lasted us the whole time and was better than other stuff we saw people had. We were not asked to pay for a couple of days which had us worried since we wanted to take care of business and not worry about it. We offered a good price and they excepted it. We could tell they were ready to haggle on the price if we wanted to but I did not find the need. The key did not work for our room and we had to jimmy it with a kitchen knife each time we wanted to get in. Trust me it is hard after ten redstripes and in pure darkness.There was no head on the shower and it was leaky. not worried. It is true that there are hustlers everywhere but that is jamaica. There were a couple guys that hung out there every day and tried to sell ganja etc.. but after you said no once they would leave you alone. We did eat some good food there,breakfast and brown chicken stew. The bar was always open and there was always someone on the grounds to address concerns. the drinks were a little pricey but we kept our own redstripe in our room and drank those. Getting a six pack from the store is really cheap. we did have patrick set us up with a cab for a day trip and it was nice and on time. Staying at errols really depends on wat kind of person you are. If you are adventerous and dont expect to be pampered then this is a good place. If you have thin skin and not enough guts to stand up to the hustlers, stay at a resort. This is a safe place and a good value, but remember its not the ritz.
