My son and I had a great stay at the Inn. Delores, Saundra and the whole staff were very accomodating as usual. I would definitely recommend the Inn to families, and couples who love the beach. The beaches in Negril are the best and you are right on the beach when you step out your door. I recommend the restaurant...

Close to other establishments where you can find music, liquor and other restaurants up and down the beach. The beach is one of the best ever, lovely white...

An affordable place on the beach. Great location! A friendly locally owned inn smack in the middle of 7 mile beach. No bells & whistles. Clean and safe. Hot showers if you catch it right. Steps from the water. Available beach chairs. What more could you want?

I couldn't disagree more with macquechoux's review. I was quite surprised. I have to believe that there was some miscommunication somewhere that lead to the unfortunate situation that macquechoux experienced. This was my family's first time staying with Delores and her family at Donaldson's and it won't be our last. We were recommended by some friends who have stayed at...

I have been traveling to Negril for 30 years now and my experience with booking a beach front room with Delores O'Connor, Manager of Donaldson's Inn was the sort of thing that makes you want to write off bothering to do business with small local Jamaican inn keepers. In recent years I have stayed at Tree House, Rainbow Arch, Country...
