My wife and I have been to Citronella several times and recently I went solo and stayed in a smaller private cabin not facing the ocean but it was comfortable clean, it had everything I needed to relax and explore the bars, restaurants and eateries that we so enjoy. Cathy and John the owners are welcoming, helpful and good hosts.... More

I almost didn't want to review this because I want to keep Citronella as our secret, however, we enjoyed our stay so much just have to share. If you aren't the "all inclusive" type of traveler Citronella is perfect. Quiet, low key, island life. You won't find a better deal for your own cabana with private access to the water.... More

Just came back from a 10-day trip to Jamaica of which we stayed our first 4 days in the Conch House at Citronella. Citronella is perfectly situated on the cliffs and it seems each house in the compound has it's own private access to the pristine, turqoise water. All the places to dive or jump from suited us perfectly, and... More

I have been going to Negril for 20 years. I have stayed at several cliffside locations (from private homes to more well known 'resorts' like Tensing Pen). This was definitely a favorite, and we will be back! I am just sorry it took so many years to find. Clean, quiet, peaceful. Beautiful property with well-cared for landscaping. Multiple easy-access points... More

Staying at Citronella is a surreal experience. Leaving this property after five days was like waking up from a magical dream. Looking back at the pictures I find it hard to believe we actually stayed at a place that perfect. The views are amazing and the grounds make you feel like you're in your own botanical garden. We were in... More

We have been coming to Jamaica for 20 plus years. From 1 star to the Ritz we've seen it all. For the past 6 years we find ourselves drawn back to Citronella, the warm staff, beautiful grounds and breathtaking waters are what Caribbean vacations are all about. This place is old Jamaica at its best. We spent last thanksgiving there... More

Our family celebrated Christmas at Citronella! We had the most memorable, glorious, time in this perfect place. It was perfect because of the people. All staff were so kind to us. We loved enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinners with Colette and Tamone. Upon arrival, on Christmas day, we were greeted to a candlelit feast! Every dish was prepared with love.... More

We've traveled throughout Jamaica over the years but Citronella has the most breathtaking beauty of any piece of land on the island. Perched atop the cliffs of Negril's west end, one is given the space and privacy to create their own Caribbean dream. Wild nightlife? No. - try the beach. Crazy party and a hoppin' bar. No - go down... More

We loved staying at Citronella. It is not the fanciest place I have ever stayed at but you cant beat the location. it is next to the Caves which is one of the nicest hotels in Negril. I am not sure where else you can get a private cottage on the ocean with steps down a cliff to your own... More
