“Blew our expectations away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Sea Grape Villas is one of the coolest properties I've ever stayed at when traveling abroad. Completely private, amazing access to the cliffs and water below, and beautiful sunsets every night.

Definitely recommend e-mailing the owners to make sure the property is the right fit for you. If you prefer the resort experience, I'd stay at one. If you prefer creating your own vacation, you can't find a better place.

The on-site staff (Juicy, Bentley, and Christine) are terrific. Juicy brings fresh coffee and toast to your villa each morning. You can also order dinner from him each night, for a reasonable price, and enjoy authentic Jamaican fare as good as any restaurant we ate at during our trip.

Our villa was clean, quiet, and private. We enjoyed entire days on the property and being able to walk to nearby attractions (walking the main road is the most nerve-racking part of Jamaica, but the local shops, food joints, and people were great). Only a $10 taxi ride from the beach. Owners have great recommendations on places to visit.

The property is well-maintained with a lot of vegetation, so bring bug spray in case it rains. Worth dealing with the mosquitos for the chance to see some other real cool wildlife. Mosquitos weren't worse than anywhere in the southeast U.S. for comparison.

Snorkeling on the property is fun, as was taking a ride with Vincent (another property manager recommendation) out to the reef about 30 minutes away. For about $25 a person, he'll give you a personally guided tour that goes about a mile along the reef or he'll let you do your own thing.

If it's your thing, you can't stay any where better.

Big shout out to Juicy, Bentley , Christine and the fabulous owner of Sea Grape Villas!! My husband and I have stayed at Sea Grape many times over the last 15+ years. There is no better and we know b/c we have stayed in or visited many other properties. Spent my 40th bday there with closest friends. Took all 3 houses. Love the privacy!! Is the only way to visit NEGRIL, trust me. Stayed on beach first few trips. Went to cliffs (sea grape) and never looked back. Is total chill! Total Irie! All your needs will be met and you will have complete privacy from prying eyes plus the best sunsets and direct ocean access!

Room Tip: Must stay in Sea Grape Villa. Or Wild Grape. Both on water edge!

We arrived from Jamaica to Miami on April 29th.Now I have time to write to you of the most memorable trip we have taken in a long time.Your staff of Juicy,Bently,and Christine made our stay at Seagrape a totally unique experience.From the time we arrived until we left they treated us like royalty.You are truly blessed to have such warm and engaging people working for you.Seagrape is to be experienced.The lush landscape kept revealing new secrets each day.I cannot fail to mention our constant companions Lucky and Blackie the Seagrape dogs.Several times we had Juicy cook our meals.He loves preparing fresh local food with a personal touch that left us most satisfied.Everyone treated us like old friends.We will come back and have been spreading the word on Seagrape to our friends.They truly understand what hospitality is all about!!!! With deepest regards,Pat,Lydia,and Tom Gainor

If you want a place to chill out with a whole lot of privacy, this is the place to go. We've been to quite a few places in Negril and this is one of a few that I really want to go back to. The staff is excellent. Polite, kind, helpful and so much more. We bought some of our own groceries to cut down on cost a bit, but for the price you pay to have a meal prepared, served and cleaned up we shouldn't wasted our time.

Beware of a private renter, who is calling his apartment on the,
bankrupt POINT VILLAGE property, SEA GRAPE. Nothing
is open, not a restaurant or bar, and it is all run down.

I almost booked with him until the paypal bill came for me to pay.
I knew I was looking at POINT VILLAGE, because I am a citizen of
Jamaica. He is using the name of the West End Sea Grape,as his own.
Sea Grape is an amazing property that is right on the cliffs.
Great views and tranquility awaits you.

Room Tip: The West End of Negril is more laid back and quiet. Nice to go to the wonderful 7 Mile Beach, but a...

I have been coming to the west end of Negril for almost 30 years and this year, I stayed at Sea Grape for the first time. It was heavenly. We loved the privacy, the solitude, and the comfort of Sea Grape villa. Christine, Juicy and Bentley were wonderful hosts. We had several dinners at other places and Juicy's food is the best. It is delicious, reasonably priced and delivered to us. What more could we ask for!! I appreciate that Sea Grape is simple and clean with attention to detail. (fresh flowers upon arrival). I am sure this was the beginning of many more trips to Sea Grape.

This was just the right place for us. Big enough to sprawl out, but some cozy spots where we ended up being together. We loved the ocean viewing spots. FANTASTIC cove around the corner to snorkel in. Really, a magical underwater place that was better than any of the sites were we went scuba diving.
ONLY problem were the tropical-omnipresent bugs, and only that for one of us (who is a target for mosquitoes).
