Cottages and hotels line al along the Seven Miles beach of Negril. Some are better than others, some have swimming pools and better restaurants than the rest, but all share the same conditions: they are cornered in the 150 meters wide land stripe between the beach and Normal Manley Boulevard. Firefly Cottages, with its iconic old house, is one of... More

For the past year we have concentrated on upgrading the beach front rooms and will be working on the cottages this summer. Our entire property will be fully renovated by December 15, 1016.

The beach is very nice and the cottages have direct access (great for the kids). Rooms would need a bit a refresh but beds are good and aircon works. Don't expect much from the kitchen part you'll be disappointed. The restaurant is okay, and there is not much around anyways. Don't expect a good breakfast either as there is no... More

The location is great, right in the center of wonderful 7 mile beach. However, the rooms and bathrooms need renovation. There are a microwave and toaster in the room, but nowhere to plug them. I asked for a wire and was told they would bring something but it never happened. No hot water in the room. Very noisy as the... More

On November 2015 We checked out of the Firefly bound for Montego Bay. On returning to Negril we met in an accident and the staff on hearing about the accident was gracious to us by offering to overnight us without cost. The members of staff were very attentive and checked on us constantly. We really felt special.

I have been on a tour around Jamaica with g-adventures so my expectations of hotels and bed and breakfasts were reasonably low. However, the Firefly cottages surpassed my expectations! I shared a room with another solo traveller and were greeted with friendly staff and escorted to our room. Okay, the room was very dated - but very spacious and clean!... More

Firefly gave us the perfect Jamaican getaway. With C Grape trees lining the bar and restaurant almost all the way to the beach, you always have shade to cool off under while watching the peddlers walk by with their wares; the Caribbean Sea sparkling behind. Sunsets are the thing, since it's on the west side of the island, but I... More

We had never been to Jamaica and our trip was a last minute getaway planned just 3 days before arriving. Normally, we might have stayed at a more upscale hotel, but those were either sold out or had no rooms available in our price range. However, the Firefly Beach Cottages seemed to have decent reviews and a good location so... More

This was my first time staying at Firefly and will not be my last. I have stayed in Negril both the cliffs and the beach and this was my best experience in years…. we stayed in the penthouse with the most amazing balcony and views! It was worth the two flights of stairs to get there but for us gym... More

My wife and I spent a week in Negril with our 7-year-old and my parents. The rates at Firefly were good, the location unbeatable and the staff delightful. They offer a range of options depending on your budget, from tiny (but quaint) garden cabins with shared bath, to the Hummingbird Suite with a lovely fourposter bed and beachfront balcony. My...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Top class suites, penthouses and studios in the best part of Negril Beach. The gardens are beautiful year round. Our wonderful guests are beach lovers who also enjoy the ambiance, the serenity, the casual yet efficient feeling, the weekly beach party and the beachfront rooms which are surprisingly rare on Negril beach. ALL units have kitchens and verandas. Gym, WiFi and Jacuzzi are here. All our romantic rooms have kitchens or kitchenettes allowing greater choice of dining and drinks than mere hotel rooms. Our beach bar/cafe, with Maxine in charge, is well-known for the luscious pancakes and other breakfast items and day-long snacks along with the coldest beer served with the warmest smiles to our guests and other visitors on the beach.Our guests come from many countries, at times they are from as many as nine countries represented at our free weekly beach parties. What they return for is the casual, friendly atmosphere, no-one knows whether you're rich or poor, no-one wears a Rolex, and you go to the beachfront in your bikini or swimsuit - no need for any other cover unless you wish.We have watchmen and security cameras at night just to make sure you're OK.There are many cafes, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance on the beach and all water-sports are close by. Reggae concerts (Bourbon Beach, Roots Bamboo) are 10 to 15 minutes walk away on the beach and Kool Runnings Water Park is 2 miles away across the road.Shopping for gifts and souvenirs is available at Time Square one mile away and supermarkets are 2 miles away, in town. Also each year our team wins in the Negril Marathon/half/10k early December. This year in the full Marathon we had the 2nd overall and the first in the over 80 age group (Roy Thomas from Kingston who runs the Marathon here every year). We also had other section winners.
